I have acid reflux and a small hiatus hernia and am on a proton pump inhibitor drug to help. However the chronic wind and AF episodes are something quite different. Once the wind starts (it is so loud everyone around can hear it) the pulse goes mad and AF kicks in. My PAF episodes are highly symptomatic with chest pain, fainting, palpitations, heart rate 200+ and very raised BP. A&E monitoring is required each time. Does anyone have the same thing. Its a chicken and egg situation AF = wind, or wind starts AF - which. Thanks for taking time to comment.
