Constant afib for two months, back to sinus rhythm.

I have been in constant afib for at least two months. I believe it was influenced by prednisone. Had been to ER several times. No relief. Max dosage dilatizrem.

This morning I did my Kardia and lo and behold it said I was in sinus rhythm , no atrial fib.  Has anyone else had this kind of spontaneous change?????

    This is pretty remarkable from what I've seen on this forum. FWIW, my paroxysmal afib sometimes went on for more than 24 hrs then just stopped - I wondered what stopped them just like we obsess about triggers that start afib. I'm now on anti arrhythmic drugs with added pill in pocket for breakthroughs so hopefully I won't be able to further explore NSR triggers.

    That's what I thought. Before my ablation I would be in afib for awhile until I either converted in my own or with drugs. My afib ffirb the last several months I believe was prednisone induced. I have been tapering off, but the conversion didn't relate to any reduction in the dosage.

    Thars why I'm asking here.
