Bob had chronic sleep apnea, and the exhaustion caused by lack of sleep, triggered symptoms of atrial fibrillation (afib). After multiple trips to sleep and heart specialists, he turned to his Gastroenterologist. The underlying cause of his problems turned out to be silent reflux, he was regurgitating from his esophagus up into his throat all night long. Bob had a Stretta procedure 13 months ago and now gets a good nights sleep. His reflux episodes have been significantly reduced and he can rest easy because his afib has also resolved.
