I am 27 years old and was diagnosed with atrial fibrillation and atrial flutter 3 months ago after i went out of rhytm when i stepped out of hot tub. I went to the emergency room and after 3 days the rhytm went back to normal after being on Tambocor (Flecainide) and metaprolol for 2 days. But after i got home the afib attacks have started 5 times. And i always feel some very uncomfortable heavy heartbeat(not fast just heavy). And then i had holter monitor for 48 hours and everything was normal. But then i found out that if i eat ginger and cayenne pepper the heavy heartbeat goes away within an hour. But in every case when the afib attack start is when i eat those 2 foods. So it seems to calm my heavy heartbeat but also trigger the afib. My blood pressure is generally low 120/60 and resting pulse is between 50-60beats/min. Have anyone else notice ginger or cayenne pepper or any other herb trigger atrial fibrillation? I tried to google it but the only information i found is that these 2 herbs can help afib.
