James,

I've been having fast heartbeat for some time now and yes, I usually get it during my sleep. I'll wake up with my heart racing so fast that I sometimes cannot even count it. It always gets worse when I'm on antibiotics. I never knew if it was my thyroid, because I have Hashimotos or if it was sleep apnea or just Lyme. It's very scary when it happens and I usually have to take something to calm it down.

Did this just start for you when you took the antibiotics?

James,

You've got all the signs and symptoms of magnesium deficiency. Dr. B claims that racing heart, brain fog, and twitching can sometimes be alleviated with magnesium supplements. Give it a shot. It may work for you too. It did for me.

Hoping for a cure (but will settle for remission at this point)

I agree that magnesium may help you. I also have the twitching that you describe but all over. I have a magnesium deficiency. Mag helps me.

good luck.
