    I'm 49, two ablations, many cardio versions in my portfolio. Unfortunately I tip toe around now waiting for the next event. Pre-ablation I could tolerate abnormality, now all events involve rapid heart rate 115+  which I find intolerable.

    biggest triggers:

    1. Dehydration-Exterme heat, hangovers or strenuous exercise have all thrown me in.

    2. Anger/ fear that causes anxiety created my last episode- argument with my girlfriend.

    3. In my sleep (twice)- I wear CPAP and have sleep apnea which I think is or was a major contributor.

    4.High Blood pressure is what my doctor tells me is biggest contributor.

    5. Sneezing attack

    6. Frequent and incessant urination seems to be a precursor I have noticed too - probably makes me dehydrated, who the heck knows.

    i appreciate everyone's feedback.

      Yes, it sux and I'm on BP meds amlodopine and Losaratan and Metoporol ( to control rate) , generally works well until it does not. Trying to live life normally and enjoy myself. Everyone has got sh*t going on, trying to focus on weight reduction and an overall good diet for general health. Keeps my mind off the potential of falling out of rhythm. How long you been dealing w your rhythm?
