    I was lucky to discover that I have A fib from a sleep study before getting a heart attack as my wife cousin did.
    Then I dig a bit dipper on my issue: My father was a loud snorer
    but he was never diagnosed with sleep apnea. At the time they didn’t
    know is a dissed, just some people snores!
    Than my father died from an embolism on the brain at 81 years; So I made the connection: Sleep apnea triggered a fib produced blood cloth(s) which traveled to the brain, eventually. So my issue could be genetic.
