Sat, Mar 28 10:44am · Questions about Eliquis in Heart Rhythm Conditions

I take Eloquis and the only side effect I have is bruising. But I'm taking Brilinta also, two blood thinners.

It was my experience that it took about a month to feel really better after my ablation.

Years of physical exercise predisposed you to heart problems??? Wow! I'm not a doctor and I don't even play one on TV, but I find that incomprehensible. Exercise IMHO probably predisposed you to living well until age 66 and even beyond. Who knows why these heart problems occur? My doctor has never told me why. I don't expect him to know why. Maybe it's genetic. Maybe it's not. It doesn't sound good to me to blame your dancing and exercise for this problem. I had a heart attack a year and a half ago and my doctor wanted me in a cardiac exercise program as soon as I was able, which was only a few weeks. I have A-fib. Have had it for years. I think the reason I'm in good shape now is because I exercise regularly at a gym. Yes, do get a second opinion.

Mon, Feb 10 10:56pm · Afib Triggers: Mine is my neck or body position, yours? in Heart Rhythm Conditions

I've never been able to figure out what triggers mine. I just don't drink coffee or black tea, just in case that does it, and besides I have trouble sleeping. I try to live a calm and stressless life.

Wow! That is quite a story, AFRobin. I've never heard of hormone therapy for afib. I'll ask my cardiologist about it. That's amazing. I'd love the benefit of sleeping like a baby! 🙂

I really don't know what triggers my a-fib. I wish I could figure that out. I just do the things recommended such as no caffeine, no alcohol, no cough medicines. I keep my weight down. I exercise regularly, go to the gym and work out three times a week, including lifting weights and treadmill, about 1.25 hours a day. I try to live a conscious life avoiding as much drama as I can. I do a lot of art, painting and drawing. I think it's kind of meditative. I can get lost in it. I take my meds religiously.

I put off having an ablation after my cardiologist first suggested it. I put it off for two or three years after reading a few negatives about it on the internet. When I finally had it done after I was sick and tired of being sick and tired, I kicked myself for having put it off. I felt SO much better. I got my life back.

Aug 15, 2019 · AFib - Question about blood thinners in Heart Rhythm Conditions

I've been taking Eloquis for a little over a year now since a heart attack and have had no problems with it. The downsides of these drugs are very rare, I believe. They have to warn you to cover their liability just in case, but these things rarely occur. Would you rather have a stroke? That can definitely happen if you don't take a blood thinner and you have A-fib.
