I've noticed this as well, but I hadn't thought about associating it with AFib.

Me too. Never have associated the two. Hmmm🤔

Those of us who are allergic to both smoke and molds know that molds can smell like smoke. I am especially sensitive to molds, so I smell that smell during the mold bloom from September to November each year.
Allergies can cause inflammation in the body, and inflammation can lead to afib. There is probably a connection there somewhere.
