Hi fellow afibers - I’m becoming more and more convinced that my Afib is connected to my indigestion/heartburn/vagus nerve etc etc - I’ve had about a year with no AF no palps or anything then about a month ago I got a lot of indigestion problems for about 2 weeks, followed by 2 weeks of palps etc. I now want to educate myself about what diet I should be on, what foods I should avoid etc and I’d like to start with visiting a nutritionist - any advise/recommendations on this matter would be much appreciated. Thanks

    Vagus nerve?
    • Posted

      You would be best to google it for full information.

      The vagus nerve is the longest cranial nerve. It contains motor and sensory fibers and, because it passes through the neck and thorax to the abdomen, has the widest distribution in the body. It contains somatic and visceral afferent fibers, as well as general and special visceral efferent fibers.
