Jan 16, 2019 · Heart Rhythm Conditions – Welcome to the group in Heart Rhythm Conditions

To lowering heart rate, I walk. I do 10,000 steps a day. That mean 3 times 15 minutes walk. Morning, after lunch at day time, and sunset time 15 minutes. This controls my heart pulse rate, and blood pressure. After morning walk I take the two meds, than test pressure and pulse with a micro-life tester, than both test looks good. I repeat at sunset the walk the meds and the test. I quit drinking beer ( : ( ) but its ok. Limit coffee (morning) and wine (at night after dinner) to small cup ie glass works for me…

Hi, my name is Zollie, 63 years old sports man who never thought have an atrial fibrillation problem. However when I was a kid in the community pools the older people warned us not to hand around deep in the hot water pool, cause its the source of the high heart beat. You think we listen? Here I am after 3 decades of excitement in a soccer goal, with a lots of stress some time, the diagnosis was devastating. I went for a simple upper reportorial track infection for about 2 years ago, than the doc wanted to check me in to the hospital, cause one of the peptide went ballistic. The doc said it's not your lung or a flu I think of, it's the heart. So it was. The docs knew it right away I was AFIB. Atrial Fibrillation the pulse was up and down. At sleep the heart beat pulse went to 160 or slowed down to 40, the blood pressure was up and down. Finding this out the docs suggested the ablation procedure. Before I tried to go through an electro pulse sync what some times controls the pulse. It did not work with me. Ablation procedure goes through the groin vanes up to the heart and like a tune up on cars, synchronize the heart beat.
Since that my pulse and pressure chart what I check every day with my MicroLife tester (Walmart) smooth and steady. I am still taking two meds recommended from hospital One Flecainide one Carvedilol morning and one each at night. So the pulse steady and this nightmare AFIB does not come back. I avoid stress and sleep well nothing jumps me out of the bed unexpectedly, turning off the phone too. So good so far a one and half year later of the ablation.
