High blood pressure is one of the major causes of afib. I don’t know of anyone who has atrial fibrillation who does not have or did have hypertension.

It’s most common condition associated with atrial fibrillation. If your blood pressure is through the roof and you’re not doing much about it, chances are, you’ll develop atrial fibrillation.

The stretching of the atria under increased pressure may be the root cause of many cases of afib. The nerve pathways in the atria and surrounding structures may be damaged by this stretching and cause the out of sequence beats we know as atrial fibrillation.

When it comes to high blood pressure it appears a little bit means a lot.
