I find it interesting that I discovered this connection on my own---I had developed afib for unknown reasons, as I have none of the major risk factors. I discovered when I took any NSAID for more than a couple of days, the arrhythmia would increase. Even after I had an afib ablation, I noticed that the NSAIDs I took for a repetitive motion injury to my right thumb, caused my heart rhythm to go off track, and I felt like the afib was coming back. It took more than 2 weeks after I stopped taking them for me to feel "normal" again.
