I am a Vietnam vet and have PTSD. After a long battle with the VA I have proved that I have PTSD. I am almost 64 years and started having problem with attrail fib when I was 36 years old. I have been on meds for since I was 49 and at 56 the meds. would no longer control it. Since then I have had four ablation procedures done in the VA Dallas hospital. No other members of my family have had this problem, not even any of my cousins. I began having problems with my stomach while still in Vietnam, that has continued since that time and has progressive got worst. I am certain that the stress from PTSD has caused both my stomach
problems and the attrail fib. I need access whatever studies that link PTSD to attrail fib. As we all know the VA is hard to deal with, one must prove everything to them.
