"Wow!"  "That's incredible!"

Have you ever raced and felt that you were about to explode? I mean really, really felt that way? Ever thought your heart rate monitor was on the blink, giving you spurious readings? Ever found it difficult to measure your own heart rate manually? Have you ever noticed your pulse miss a beat or behave erratically? Do you consider yourself as someone with a high level of fitness who has trained hard for years who is suffering a little dip in performance? Could be you are suffering from Atrial Fibrillation.
