Hi after various tests my consultant thinks I may have paroxysmal AF. It comes on for no reason, stays on and off for a week or so then goes. I think it is food related as it nearly always happens in the evening, I have GERD and my cardio said there is a definite relationship between AF and food. Following several ECG, stress test and 24 hour monitor they caught a slight change in rhythm, but nothing of any significance. My main symptoms are dull ache central chest between breasts, (I am 58 and female) and pain up left side of breast. I can feel heart racing and fluttering and then usually a thud, it can go from 72 bpm to 108 bpm just sitting still. Yesterday I was given a cardio memo and could not believe it when it happened twice last night, so I recorded this and sent it down the telephone as requested. Now my real question is, what happens if they can see something on the ECG that is produced. Would they call me? or just leave it until the month is up, I may not have anymore. I should have asked this question but they were so busy and I do not want to call them to ask. Anyone had any experience of a cardio memo please.
