ask: PTSD and Atrial Fibrilations and Right Bundle Block

Does PTSD contribute to Atrial Fibrilations and/or Right Bundle Block? I have been diagnosed with both and I did not have these prior to PTSD.

I am sorry you are going through this, as any event that triggers PTSD is obviously traumatic, and yes...PTSD is associated with many other health conditions.

In fact, there is a recent article at EmpowHER, written about recent research finding an association between PTSD and cardiovascular disease: The Link Between PTSD and Cardiovascular Disease.

Please keep us updated on how you are doing, and we are here if you have any additional questions.
