I find myself very breathless in the mornings, after breakfast. Just walking 100m on the flat leaves me gasping for breath. Heart is pounding during this time. But later in the day this passes and I can walk around well (not as well as prior to AF but 30/45 mins on flat without too much breathlessness).
Any suggestions what might be causing this?
My Apple watch doesn’t log AF during the breathlessness, HR goes up to about 95, normally 60 at rest. Walking later in day my HR is usually 80.
I went into persistent AF last September (2021) had a successful CV in Nov and since have been in NSR. I’m on Diltizem and Flec 100 twice daily. Plus Apxiban.
