My husband was recently treated for an episode of AF and all of his tests came back normal. Echo, x-rays, bloodwork of every kind. I'm glad those are normal, but it's frustrating not being able to point a finger at some cause. I have done a lot of research so far, and aside from the "physical" conditions that can contrubute to AF I've read about alcohol, caffeine, and stress. My 32 year old husband has been living with chronic stress (from work) for years now, culminating in all all time high over the past 6 months. How "key" is stress as an initial trigger, or how much of a danger is it now that his AF has been diagnosed? I thank you for your time.
