Hello all,
I am new to the forum and was hoping someone heard of my problem. Everytime I eat or drink my heart flutters (palpitates) as the food or liquid goes down it triggers it. This has been going on for 5 days. I had an EKG and go in for the 24 hour holter tomorrow. The Dr says he never heard of this before which scares me. I drink alcohol on the weekends and drink 1 soda per day. I recently stopped drinking caffiene and alcohol for 5 days and still no signs of it clearing up :(   Once in awhile I feel light headed after it happens but for the most part no pains. it shows up on the EKG because the nurse had me drink some water as they did the test.
Any info would be great.

My heart palpitates when I drink anything with the artificial sweetner aspartame.
