Why is AFib dizziness worst upon standing upright after bending over for 20+ seconds? Example tying laces. I consistently feel close to blacking out (again). Scary 30-seconds-to-death mention on British tv documentary 'GPs: Behind Closed Doors' on Feb 1st.
Sadly, my (UK based) cardiologist department wiped my 24-hour heart-rate Holter tape-recording without downloading the data or analysing it. Batteries ran out on 2nd try before I did normal daily activities. A month ago I asked my GP to ask them to try again. No response. 5 months since learning I have constant AFib. Apparently started 21 years ago in my 30s when I was dropped onto my front.
I am keen to know whether I can get back, now, to pushing myself to bend over, lift things, walk up slopes with shopping - my triggers for increased dizziness + palpitations.
Understanding the science of why bending provokes the worst sudden dizziness may help me (+ others?) invent coping methods. I want to get active in the garden, after this 5-month wait, and 21-year health challenges. The NHS leaves me feeling rather alone. Thanks if YOU can help, folks.
