Imagine being at the start of an AFib attack. Sure… you don’t have to imagine it. You are living with AFIb. Commonly, you have palpitations, rapid or irregular heartbeat, chest pain, and simultaneously may also feel extreme anxiety. Wouldn’t it be helpful to know what to do during an AFib attack? Well, that’s what my patients have said to me. So, I’ve decided to think about some simple things you can do to help work through it.
People everywhere are learning about and using wearable technology to monitor their heart rate while exercising. Even if you don’t yet know about using heart rate monitoring wearable technology, keep moving to stay fit and extend your life. Those with AFib still need to keep moving as a part of living the highest quality of life. What about exercise induced AFib? Doesn’t AFib mean you need to stop exercising because your body’s blood pump no longer functions correctly? Fortunately, no, it doesn’t. Exercising is still an important part of your life’s routine.
