Hi All

Hi, I'm Hiram, I'm 52 years old. I was born with pulmonary stenosis and repaired at 7. At 30 valve was replaced for a porcine.I remember since I was little I felt some palpitations in my chest, but since my second surgery I was diagnosed with Afib. Typically it gives me tachycardia and in several minutes it ends and very rarely I have gone to the hospital to normalize my heart rate with non ending heart race. Anyway, I avoid exercises or high emotions because they give me strong palpitations, but sometimes not necessarily fast. I had to live with this for the last 22 years and is not easy. Hello to all. Hiram

    Welcome to our forum, Hiram!  We are glad that you have joined our community and hope you will get support as well as helpful information as we share our experience here.  I would suggest that you make your next post in the AT HOME section for A-Fib.  There seem to be more members who read and respond to the posts there. You will find that you are definitely "not alone" in this s-fib journey and we will look forward to hearing from you again...and letting us know how  you are doing.

    Wishing you the best,

    Hi, Hiram, and welcome!  I hope you are under the care of an electrophysiologist (EP) for your AFib, one who specializes in treating AFib.  The condition is unlikely to go away on its own, and there may be additional things (procedures) that could make your situation better for you.  It's a shame to have to avoid exercises and high emotions.   Keep us posted!
