Any hint to the cause of AF?
I've taken mega-doses of vitamins all of my 50yo+ life and for the last 20 years have mostly exercised in a gym 3 times or more a week.
Where did I go wrong?
About 6 years ago the doctors put me on the usual high blood pressure meds which I had a various bad reactions.
All of my health problems started within 6 months of taking phen-fin....the killer diet drug. Everone ignored this fact as attributing to an of my problems.
Problems also included neuropathy.
I've had AF going on 2 years. A major change in my life was living in a mobile home for 3 years while my house was being built.
The mobile home set ~200 FEET FROM A CELL TOWER!
Any other of you AFers radiated 18 hrs/day?
I have never had the bad chest pains as some of you report. In the past when I did get a chest pain a bio-magnet always helped. These were the pre-AF days!!!!!
I posted these details to see if others have a similar background leading up to this condition.
As far as a cure, I am my own lab rat. Now I am dosing myself with EDTA, a chelation chemical to see if there are any heavy metals in my system that are causing my neuropathy and to remove and plaque in the arteries. No results yet.
Sunday I was in bad shape with my neuroaphy, breathing and dizziness. I had felt this comming on for a while and Sunday I had an attack of shingle type pain in my back and over my liver..it was bad. No surface eruptions. I don't get shingles outbreaks, just this pain!
Monday for the first time in a long time my breathing was perfect!
It was like a switch was flipped and I was cured.
No diziness or other symptoms I associate with my AF/heart condition.
Knee pain gone, and leg strength totally returned.
Of course I had the two hyper sensitive areas, front and back which itched like hell, but I was a new person.
Okay, what I have experienced here seems to be that the virus that causes the shingles/herpies concentrated in two areas and left the heart, lungs, and other
effected areas. Even my neuropathy was slightly better in certain areas.
Could it be that these conditions are caused by a virus and the virus withdrew to these two areas on my body. In the front the I had a puffy lump about the size of my fist.
Yesterday my doctor who usually does along with me would not prescribe an anti-viral. The pain is still lingering.
He does not believe the virus can migrate as I claim and feel(in my body).
I hope this account of my problem will prompt others with similar symptoms and experiences to report back.
