Really, I can't eat pizza?? I bought that five dollar pizza again tonight and ate 1/2 on the way home. I'd like to say it was worth it....but, again I'm in afib. This stinks. So far I'm on hour three!! Waiting for a break! Hint hint.
Anyone else have this prob? I'm doing an
afib ablation in February tired of this crap. You know I started 15 yrs ago with persistent tachycardias and it has morphed into this!
I skip pizza if my reflux or digestion is acting up, or anything spicy or hot. A Cleveland Clinic chat had one of the doctors stating that pizza was a trigger for some people -- I think he said because it was high fat. Also, 1/2 of a pizza at one time would qualify as eating too large a meal for me, and that has thrown me into afib more than once. I don't think you need to cross it off your list FOREVER, but anything that upsets the stomach can irritate the vagus nerve and cause trouble. I haven't had caffeine or chocolate in a year. It just isn't worth the possibility of a trip to the hospital. Hope it calms down for you -- will it stop on its own? My doesn't anymore, I have to go to the hospital and be cardioverted, something I prefer to avoid like the plague:) I will be interested in how your ablation goes, as I may be going that route myself. I have an appt. for evaluation at Cleveland Clinic in March. Good luck!
Mine usually quits in two to five hours. I had a Great summer and then around august episodes started about once ev third week and now it seems ev other day! I've had three ablutions before in the right atrium for tachys but this is first in left side. Technology has greatly improved with new software better targeting. I'm going for it. This is crazy. I've had adenosine and cardio versions and agree it is not a good situation. Peace to all of us.
