I am posting this as it might help some off you who like me are still able and fortunate enough to exercise whilst in AF.
My AF had been under control for around 13 years after an Ablation and staying on Flecainide. I had to come off Flecainide in April after discovering some Coronary Artery disease.
Since then my AF episodes have increased to an extent that I go into AF on a weekly basis. I blame Bisoprolol that reduces my BPM to the low 40’s but that’s another story.
All my life I’ve done some form off endurance exercise and hence my normal BPM is around 50BPM.
when I go into AF I tolerate it quite well although the 1st day I feel a bit ropy. Usually up all night urinating as many of us experience.
As soon as possible when I’m in AF I’ve been forcing myself to go out on my recently bought E Bike and my last 4 episodes I have reverted back to Sinus Rhythm whilst out on the bike. I’ve tried my indoor exercise bike in the past which has been hit and miss.
I bought the E Bike as I went into AF whilst out on my normal bike at the top of a great hill. To give me some reassurance that I could get home.
I would highly recommend getting an E Bike if you’re okay exercising will give so much more confidence. I think nothing of going out and doing 30 miles or more and you can vary the assistance levels to suit your fitness level
Hope this helps
