Can Atrial Fibrillation be related to Mental Stress?
Right now, my dad has been diagnosed with a-fib for a few years. They have ran quite a few tests and are finding the cause. Instead, the doctors have been prescribing medication which has been progressively increased over time which now has caused an indigestion problem.

For the past few years, he has not only faced this health problem but other stressful events that are mentally stressful than physically stressful. He can perform physical work fine, but when he falls for some reason, his heart goes out of sync, but he is also thinking about the effect of what is hurt and not being able to be with his friends later.
                     




J.SWAMY I ఇ జ స్వామి
Hyperthyroidism(more common in females)and high blood pressure can cause atrial fibrillation.Strss can cause hyprtthyroidism and hypertension.Axiety if extreme can cause tachycardia(rapid heart rate--similar to fibrillation) .


essentiallysolo
Atrial Fibrillation is a physical problem, often controlled with meds, sometimes requiring other interventions.
The mental stress your dad is experienceing isn't causing the afib, but could indeed contribute to the severity of it. I strongly suggest you get your dad into counselling.
