    Same here, in 6 weeks post ablation and still have pains. Everyone says they are normal but when you have them it's horrible. My pains did get really bad till about the first month feels like someone is blowing up my heart and stabbing it all at once. Best thing I've found is rest and not over doing it. Keep up with your doc if your worried about it call and tell them everyone is different and what is nothing for some may not be the case for other.

    I've had high hearts beats like 130 bpm no energy titeness in my chest back pains that get worse when I lay back and at night is the worst don't know why, still get flutter every now and then and didn't have an appetite for weeks but got it back over time.

    Keep yourself elevated at night I'm using 3 pillows it slot but feels better that way. Hope this helps like I said I'm 6 weeks out and still dealing with it. My doc said it takes 3 months to heal.
