Mon, Jan 13 10:30pm · Afib Triggers: Mine is my neck or body position, yours? in Heart Rhythm Conditions

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! 🙂

Mon, Jan 13 1:14am · Afib Triggers: Mine is my neck or body position, yours? in Heart Rhythm Conditions

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.

My cardiologist told me the best magnesium to take is magnesium glycinate. I take 1 400 mg twice a day.

Aug 10, 2019 · AFib - Question about blood thinners in Heart Rhythm Conditions

I'm on Eloquis and have been for a little over a year, after I had a heart attack last May 25. I was also on Brilinta for a year, another blood thinner. Now only Eloquis and a baby aspirin at night. While on Brilinta I had some bruising, sometimes a lot. Now, I don't have any. And I havn't had any bleeds that you mention. All seems to be well.

My cardiologist prescribed magnesium glycinate 400 mg twice a day. He says the glycinate absorbs better than the other magnesiums. I've been taking two a day for years, no discernible side effects.
