Nothing was ever found wrong with my heart but I was nervous.
A visiting locum who called one evening after I had a long bout of heart irregularity asked me about tea and coffee and tiredness.
) but decaff for the rest of the time, I feel alot better for it.
The tightness in my chest is gone and the palpatations have eased.
I attend a cardioligist every 6 months,and take tambacour and lanoxin.
I've just turned 31 and have started getting what I would describe as a; flutter or an extra heart beat, for about 4 months now on and off.He told me I was drinking too much tea and coffee and often when I was tired.I started dringing a lot of herbal tea and water never drink coffee watch fatugue and drink tea less. I have tachacardia for 3 years.cannot touch full cream milk.Since then after 25 years of palpiations etc and fear I have never had an irregular beat or palpitation again. Ice cream near bedtime is also a diagnosed 1st my heartbeat was 238.passed out afew times.When i get gas on my tummy i find the irregular beats.I started to suffer from palpitations about six months after the op and it was thought I would have to get a pace maker but my cardioligist then put me on a low dose of beta blocker as I am on other medication for high blood pressure, and can only be on a small dose because it would interfer with my medication.This was working fine no problems and then I notice over the past 6 - 8 weeks they have started to come back and seem to be getting stronger and and I am aware of them most of the time with a feeling in my chest and then up my neck. On the evening inquestion, for my dinner I had a plate of pasta with a pesto sauce and a glass of red wine, followed by a cup of coffee.Finally after many failures with medications i have started on Rhymodan and it works for me.I am not happy to be on medication and wonder if i had left it alone would it have gone away when menopause ended. Two years ago I had a heart attack and last year a quadruple by pass.Very soon afterwards I developed a sick feeling in my tummy and my heart began to race - but at a regular pace.I went to bed and the extremely fast heartbeat continued for some hours. (anonymous)I experienced palpitations in my 30ties and 40ties and found them frightening My GP reassured me and I had a normal ECG.
