Riding with AFib (atrial fibrillation)


Since I know most of us are … ahem … in an older age demographic, I thought this might be of interest. Turns out I have AFib. Have probably had it and not known about it for a while (maybe a couple of years). No symptoms. In good shape and good health (pass with flying colors at my yearly physical). But I have AFib. Glad I discovered it so I can do something about it. https://pezcyclingnews.com/features/riding-with-afib-atrial-fibrillation/

G’day Chuck!
I’d really like to converse with you regarding AFIB as a competitive cyclist, as I suffered from the 70’s as a primary student to the mid 80’s when I started to race, to now, just to compare progress. Please let me know your preferred contact details.
Thanks OTR for providing this personal sharing!

Very Best Wishes!

I know a few people, athletes and non-athletes, who have had Ablation procedures which sorted their Afib. One was an older non athlete who had had a load of problems for some years but for a number of reasons (mostly of their own causing it has to be said) they had not been diagnosed with AFib. Once they were diagnosed and had an Ablation procedure their issues were resolved.
