for arthritis. I have bad knee pain and have had an ablation but i think certain pain meds bring back flutters or afib. Any help?
Alcohol, caffeine, cigarettes, and other stimulant drugs can set off AFib. Recent studies have also concluded that NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) often used to help the symptoms of arthritis were associated with an increased risk of atrial fibrillation. High dose corticosteroids may also be associated with Afib.
