Afib & Anxietiy

It has occurred to me that my afib is possibly a lot due to my anxieties and stress. When it started 15 years ago, I had a lot of upheaval and stress in my life. I have been doing some research and find that adrenaline plays a big part in this problem and wondered if others are very anxious?

Hi shiela. I think there maybe something in what you say but i have found that wine, red wine, really triggers an attack for me. I have got to the point where i cant drink any more than 1 glass of wine. Have you found this as well?
