Hello all, I can see from reading some of the posts that some of you are struggling - so sorry to read - I am in the same boat :(
I feel like I'm paralysed with fear - I've had skipped heart beats for quite some time- (10 year on and off) had investigations done and all came back benign. Recently I had an episode where my heart rate accelerated more than 160 bpm - this freaked me out. This episode lasted for well over an hour -- Prior to this I had been up all night worrying about
my daughter as I had to take her to the casualty department of our local hospital, she is okay now but I'm not! Since this day I've been struggling with tachycardia and I'm nnow under the care of my cardiologist - I have a heart event monitor which I switch on and hold against my wrist when I'm having an episode. I've become so afraid of these 'events' that I find it hard to get on with my life and the slightest increase in my heart rate worries me although I do stay calm - I've been keeping a food diary during the last week and I can see a pattern occuring -- My heart goes crazy approximately 45 mins to an hour after I've eaten something so now I'm afraid to eat. I've eliminated carbs from my diet, like bread, pasta and potatoes -- I'm eating more protein and so far I haven't had an episode. Has anyone else experienced a fast heart rate after eating? I would love to hear your stories. I'm sorry about
grammar or spelling - haven't checked my post but to be honest it's not important to me, but this heart thing is!!
