@fde11, I'm tagging @elegantgem and @spudmato to make sure that they see your post and mentions of them.

A-Fib, like any new diagnosis, can be scary. However, as they say, knowledge is power. The more you know about YOUR a-fib (not everyone is the same), the better you will be able to live well with the condition, recognize the warning signs and live healthy to help prevent any complications. Mayo Clinic suggest these prevention tips:
– Eating a heart-healthy diet
– Increasing your physical activity
– Avoiding smoking
– Maintaining a healthy weight
– Limiting or avoiding caffeine and alcohol
– Reducing stress, as intense stress and anger can cause heart rhythm problems
– Using over-the-counter medications with caution, as some cold and cough medications contain stimulants that may trigger a rapid heartbeat

Do you have sleep apnea? What lifestyle changes might help you?
