Is Afib ever cured?

A number of people have told me their afib has gone away after an ablation. That did not happen for me. It did lessen but I still have an episode about once or twice a month. Because of this I just recently started on eliquis and my cardiologists feels I need to be on it. I also just noticed how sensitive I am to just about everything. I took some flu medication (over the counter) and I got palpitations. I never use to be this way. The same with food. If I eat too much fat such as chips or a piece of cake with frosting I will get palpitation. I guess I just have to learn to live with it.

Hi elegantgem,
The otc flu medicine you took could have caffeine in it, and that’s enough to cause palps. Also, try and stay away from fatty foods, such as your potato chips. Was the cake chocolate? Again, chocolate has caffeine.
Maybe your Rx is not strong enough? Have you talked to your doctor about it?
My friend has similar symptoms that you have. Her doctor increased the dosage of her medicine, and her symptoms went away. .afib is a difficult condition to control, it’s so random.
Feel better,
