I suffered with anxiety about my heart after my Grandad's death. Ever since I was very aware of my heart beating. Then I noticed that after big alcohol binges I would have palpitations.
In December I went to A&E after a huge drinking and eating session as I was in AF. I was recommended to see a cardiologist.
Unfortunately the NHS waiting list was months long. I had to return back to my new job in Nigeria, where I manage a bar.
Obviously managing a bar means you end up drinking most days. I notice skipped beats regularly. I have also woke up after a heavy night in AF.
I recently seen a cardiologist here, the did an ECG and echo and told me that it will be holiday heart syndrome due to the lifestyle I live and I should take it easy. He said this because my left atrial was normal size.
I dont feel too confident with this diagnosis.
Ive also notice my head can skip a few beats when im angry.
