Fifteen years ago, Gene Mills, 73, began experiencing his heart beating out of rhythm.
“If I laid in bed it would keep me awake,” said Gene. “I slept in a recliner for years. When my heart would beat out of rhythm, I would become tired and winded quickly. Early on exercise would stop it but later on exercise made it worse.
After appointments with rhythm specialists, in 2005, he received a diagnosis. Mills had an atrial flutter and atrial fibrillation.
