We went to Calella, just north of Barcelona, for a family beach holiday. The last time I was in this area, it was between my two ablations. I was on amiodarone and completely covered up out of the sun. This time I was medication free, but still heavily coated in factor 50.
After three years of sticking to the government alcohol guidelines, I weakened a little and had a pint and/or a glass of wine or two each night with a meal; not excessive by Brits in Spain standards, but a little more than the weekly limits of 14 units.
After a few days I was starting to get interference in my Kardia readings, which continued when not drinking. I believe dehydration could be a contributory factor; I was never too good with beach holidays, but perhaps I am now unable to cope.
I also had another migraine aura, during the holiday; no headache, just the blindspot followed by the lights. Heart related? No idea. I have another couple of months before my annual check with the cardiologist, so I will continue to collect data.
