Hi everyone - First a big thank you for this forum, I have learned a tremendous amount about my condition very quickly. I have AFib/tachy and had an ablation in August which seems to have stopped at least some of the symptoms. I still have occasional rapid heartbeat incidents; these happen only at night when reclining/in bed. Sometimes I have trouble getting to sleep - heart feels “different,” pulse not racing but I’m "aware" of my heart beating and worried it will switch into AF mode.
I attribute these ongoing incidents to one or more triggers, so I am trying to identify as many of those as possible (recognizing everyone is different of course).
Here's the list of the triggers I have learned about so far, feel free to add to this list if you have experienced or heard about other triggers:
Alcohol in general; specifically red wine
Preservatives e.g., MSG
Aspartame/Nutrasweet/other artificial sweeteners
Eating too much
Perhaps this can help us all avoid things that might trigger our own individual incidents.
Many thanks and best wishes from across the pond....
