A few beers?
I’m on about my sixth week with PM, using only atrial lead. Felling better just about everyday. Had PM installed due to bradycardia and Afib. Now set to 70 bpm and on Flecainide and beta blocker. I’m. 58 years old and in good physical shape (for the most part).
I know alcohol is a no no for Afib, but I still imbibe 2-3 beers nearly daily. In fact, when I’m feeling crappy, a beer or two generally relaxes me and makes my stomach feel better. Usually, my chest pains and dizzy spells coincide with stomach issues.
I have cut back at least 50% on my consumption, since diagnosed with Afib, etc. Previously I’d suffer a lot of arrhythmia and angina after a night of heavier drinking
Any similar experience or thoughts on this? Hate to give up one of life’s great joys.
