Hello I have had four A Fib episodes that seem to be linked with root canals or tooth abscesses . This past episode the most frightening and I was kept in Emerg all day unable to lower heart rate. Two days prior I had two root canals pulled and four shots with epinephrine for freezing.

Last summer a sudden tooth access in very hot weather was followed two weeks later with episode lasting two or three days. The other two were winter tooth abscesses followed by antibiotics, root canal or extraction and A Fib.

Also my Mc Burney point seems tender often. This is an indicators of appendix inflammation.

Teeth are connected to organs through meridians; top jaw Large Intestine Channel and bottom , the Stomach channel in

Traditional Chinese Medicine.

I am trying to figure how how this may all hang together... Thoughts most welcome!

    My episodes seem to be related either to stress or shortly before a holiday having a few drinks.

      Yes that was the one . However my AFib began several days into the course if not near the end , if I recall rightly.

      I am feeling so out of balance!

      What about Candida as a result of antibiotics playing at part in AFib?

      Also according to my Naturopath, my hormones are all flatlined basically.When did your Cipro trigger you? Immediately or gradually?

      Thanks for your input.

      One week after taking one pill the last time I took it. The time before I just had a fast heartbeat that subsided after a few hours . I had a reaction when on the drip in hospital after 48 hours. They stopped it but I then had another bout of tachycardia 4 days later. This whole class of fluoroqzinolone abx can have delayed reactions. Look up fluoroquinolone toxicity. There is a thread on this site about it. If you look online you will find lots of people who have had similar experiences. In the patient info the FDA puts out heart rhythm irregularities are listed as a possible adverse reaction
