A UK television programme called "This Morning" recently had a doctor talk about Atrial Fibrillation and he mentioned that drinking coffee ( not lots of it, everything in moderation ) could help regulate the heart rhythm in people with AFib.

    I drink coffee. I am in afib before the cup and in afib after the cup. Only difference is that I am a happier and perkier afib victim after the cup. Afib is a sort of vampire which lives on the intrusive changes one makes in one's life in response to the condition. The more you live your life as normally as you can, the greater is the suffering of the afib demon. Or something like that.

      I always drink decaf and find normal coffee makes my heart even more jumpy.  Are you in permanent a.fib as I am, what meds do you find help?  I'm on metoprolol to keep rate down but nothing to keep it regular.  Does it worry you too much being in constant jumpy!  All the best.

    Good news once again about coffee!  Every second week yet another research finding is published, worldwide, showing how helpful is coffee in yet another ailment.  There must now be over a hundred ailments coffee helps.  Wonderful that so much effort is invested in coffee research.

    I'm a confirmed (green) tea drinker but once coffee has proved efficacious for a thousand ailments, I may well start drinking coffee.
