Having gone a very long time without AF, in the past few days I have experienced both fast heartbeat and fast heart beat followed by AF after an early evening meal every evening. Normally in addition to my main course I have fresh fruit and prunes for dessert.
I often have had strange feelings after my evening meal but until now nothing came of it. It doesn’t happen after breakfast or after lunch.
I am guessing it is my vagal nerve playing up and also am wondering if it is the sugar rush from the prunes.
I will talk to my Arrhythmia Nurse in the morning, but I was thinking that maybe I will try eating a little more at lunchtime and missing anything substantial to eat in the evening and certainly reducing the fruit.
I am pleased to report that all is calm now in the heart department this evening after 1 hour of AF that as usual seemed like a lifetime.
I know I am a delicate soul but despite years of experience I still go into panic mode despite knowing exactly what I should do to calm down.
