JJ Watt Makes Shocking Revelation About Having His Heart Shocked Back In Rhythm Days Before Game

JJ Watt made a shocking revelation hours before the team’s game on Sunday.

Watt revealed that he had an Atrial fibrillation on Wednesday, had his heart shocked into place back into rhythm on Thursday, and is now playing in Sunday’s game against the Panthers.

According to the Cleveland Clinic, atrial fibrillation is an irregular heart rhythm that begins in the heart’s upper chambers that can lead to “fast, chaotic heart rhythm.”

Atrial fibrillation (also called Afib or AF) is an irregular heart rhythm (arrhythmia) that begins in the upper (atria) of your heart. If you have atrial fibrillation, the normal cycle of electrical impulses in your heart is interrupted. This leads to a fast, chaotic heart rhythm and poor movement of blood from your atria to your lower chambers (ventricles).

Fans reacted to Watt playing on Sunday after his heart issue.
