    Any doctors in the house?

    Can she trigger it?

    There is a charm about the forbidden that makes it unspeakably desirable. Mark Twain

    “Very few people are focusing on the potential damage this ill-conceived and hastily assembled homage to the ability of bureaucrats to conceive of all manner of problems where problems don't exist then apply solutions to those problems that only create new problems without solving the original problems at all will bring to many sectors.

    Not a doctor, so take with plenty of salt...

    Nicotine is a fairly potent stimulant. If stimulants can trigger AFIB, nicotine seems like it would be capable.

    Yes and yes. Nicotine is a very (very) well established cause of atrial fibrillation. So much more to discuss and many other variables are involved, but the short answer is yes. PM me if you have further questions.
