How to Ease Your Anxiety With AFib


Tips for Easing Anxiety

When you have atrial fibrillation, it’s normal to experience anxiety. Sometimes the anxiety was there before you were diagnosed, but sometimes it’s a result of dealing with a chronic illness.

In many cases, AFib sufferers will experience an episode, which leads to anxiety over having another episode, which then leads to having another one. It’s a vicious cycle of fear — so how do you break it?

When dealing with anxiety on top of a chronic illness, you need to gain control over your anxiety before it consumes your life.

Yes, anxiety is a condition that requires a diverse treatment approach, but there are ways you can help yourself at home. Just remember to calm your breathing and stop your racing thoughts before they trigger an AFib attack.
