5 years ago had first af after night drinking with friends and had lots of coffee every day plus stress from court appearance trying to gain access for my son from an ex . The af lasted an hour or so then nothing for 5 years but had another episode recently and went to hospital who just said stay on meds which are 1.25mg bisoprolol once a day . I do have ectopic beats occasionally too . I'm anxious I may have another episode but what can I do to be reassured I'm ok?
I had a medical check up this week and the doctor thinks I may suffer from Atrial Fibrillation. He is referring me to my GP to get an ECG. I am 63 years old lead an active life and keep fairly fit though I am a bit overweight. Has anyone a similar experience?

Catheter ablation for afib is a corporate-driven procedure that is riskier and less effective than advertised: http://collateral-damage.net
I have been told that leafy green vegetables are bad for a sufferer from this ailment - no one told me this before. I enjoy all salad vegetables and other veg such as cabbage, kale, sprouts, etc -
I have had six bouts of AF over the last twenty plus years. I am taking asprin at the moment but my specialist has recommended that I should change to Warfarin or Apixaban. I am reluctant to take these because of the possibility of bleeds. Should I consider Ablation?
Those considering catheter ablation for atrial fibrillation should do a lot of research and know what questions to ask. The procedure is apparently helpful and appropriate for some people, but there are certain things one must know: http://collateral-damage.net
