My husband has atrial fibrillation and today while walking had a 5-minute episode of burning left-sided chest discomfort. Should we be concerned?

In brief: Yes
If it occurs again tonight, you should call the answering service for the cardiologist or go to the er. Chest pain with physical activity is always a concern, especially in someone who already has heart disease like a fib.
Regardless one of your husbands doctors should be made aware of this in the morning if no symptoms recur sooner.

I would be concerned.
We must rule out a coronary artery disease like angina or a heart attack . I hope that you already consulted with his cardiologist or taken him to the er by the time you read my answer.
