J.J. Watt, An NFL Star, Claims That His “Heart was Shocked Back into Rhythm”

Defensive end J.J. Watt of the Arizona Cardinals claims that he experienced atrial fibrillation last week and that his heart had to be “shocked back into rhythm.”

Even so, he played on Sunday, three days after the incident, against the Carolina Panthers.

On Sunday morning, Watt posted on Twitter about his health.

He tweeted on Sunday, “I just learned someone leaked some personal information about me and it’s going to be reported on today.” I had my heart shocked back into rhythm on Thursday after going into A-Fib on Wednesday, and I’m playing today. There you go.

The 33-year-old Watt admitted in a post-game interview that he thought about sitting out Sunday’s game.

He stated, “I spoke with cardiologists and electrophysiologists from all around the nation. “I received repeated assurances that there was nothing else you could do from several sources. I might play as usual, and something might occur the following day or not at all for the next 20 years. As a result, I felt confident, and on Friday, I returned to practise.

Lealia Ohai, Watt’s pregnant wife, was by his side as he received the anaesthetic for the procedure, he claimed.

For my family, my wife, and myself, it has undoubtedly been a very emotional week, Watt said.

AFib, or atrial fibrillation, is a fluttery, irregular heart rhythm that increases the risk of cardiac blood clots. There are different types of AFib, and it’s unclear whether Watt will play the next week or which type he has.
