Hi, Have been told I probably have paro AF, all tests point to this. I wonder though if anyone else has these symptoms. I can go for weeks without anything then for no reason at all they start, always after meals (my cardio said vagus nerve/food/GERD all related to AF) when sitting down, I get this really bad flipping feeling which takes my breath away and then my chest feels bruised. My heart then races and can go on for hours or just a few minutes, it makes me feel really odd. I have had it happens every night since Monday always around 9pm, always after food. Whilst my cardio has assured me it is not going to kill me, how can your heart keep doing this without it causing damage and maybe, just maybe, causing your heart to stop altogether. I know from the last year of having this that chances are it will go again completely at some point. One other thing I notice is that when I get one of these attacks quite often I get a hot flush at the same time. I am female and post menopausal but still having flushes. How does anyone manage the aching and bruised feeling at goes with it. Thanks for reading.
