I am 57 years old female , I have a AFIB and I am 100% paced and have a defibrilater.
I have increased fibrillation when i am near loud bass music, amplified noises.
movie theaters, house Alarms. Is any one having else have this problem.
That’s interesting. I don’t think I’ve heard comments such as that previously, but will listen out for others who may have experienced it. Thanks for sharing your experience with us.
I don’t know if anyone’s still having this discussion, but I’ll just say that going to the movies used to trigger afib for me all the time, but I could never figure out why. So, last weekend, I went to a seriously loud rock concert for the first time in years (I’m a 49 year old male) and the loud bass made my heart very uncomfortable. That night, I went into afib for the first time since my ablation procedure six months ago. I am convinced the two are related and that the sound from the movies is what triggered it in the past. After finding your comments, I mean to bring it up with my cardiologist.
