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.
