Atrial fibrillation is a heart condition where the heart beats quickly and irregularly. It can increase the risk of stroke or heart failure. A new study has found that nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) like aspirin, ibuprofen, naproxen, and other over the counter pain relievers increase the risk of atrial fibrillation by approximately 17%. Other potential side effects associated with NSAIDs are hearing loss, erectile dysfunction, cardiovascular risks and even death.

These cells ordinarily form within the lining of your lungs, abdomen, or the sac which encircles the heart. Thanks for discussing your ideas.
