    Yes I did, in fact overuse of ibuprofen has left me with atrial fibrillation which I was diagnosed with 4 weeks ago. I had no idea ibuprofen could damage or effect the heart in such a way but after searching the web find it is more common than people think. I can only hope now that stopping the use of NSAIDS altogether that one day my heart will recover and have regular beat and speed again.
