Thanks for that. I was diagnosed on 3/8 after calling an ambulance & winding up in the ER. I had been drinking coffee (sometimes all day) and green tea every afternooon plus had one to two glasses of red wine with and after dinner almost every night and am convinced that's what caused my afib. It's been a rough five weeks, but after cutting out all caffeine and wine, and drinking a glass of V8 juice every day, my heart seems to be behaving better. I still have occasional chest pain though. My first cardiologist appointment is in less than two days now (it took this long to get a referral and get an appointment), and I'll see what he says. Another cause for mine might be sleep apnea. That seems to be an overlooked culprit on a lot of these threads. The only solution to that is the CPAP machine, which everybody hates to even think about.
One thing you didn't mention is whether you are on meds. I was placed on blood thinners that first night in the ER and now I am told I can't go off them for the rest of my life. I also take Diltiazem to keep my heart from racing.

I have no any atrial fibrillation problem.

I am on a lot of pills for several problems . I take atenolol for gout, I have diabetics I take simvastatin for, I had total heart block , level three , I also have high blood pressure . I take metapropanol, a clonidine patch, potassium pills, vitamins glucosamine fit joints, cbd for back pains, and citrulline to help my circulation.
I might add that my arythms almost always happened between one and three in the morning. Tea has more cafine than coffee. Many sodas also affect afib. Look at your food for problems
And weight is a big problems. We can never cure afib, but can control it most of the time. Read up the causes on Mayo Clinic and Cleveland clinic and other internet sights
