Hey guys,

As the subject heading says ive been feeling tachycardia after eating for the last week, aprox 10 months ago i had afib from a infection i had. The cardiologist put me on beta blocker that stopped it and i ceased it... But now everytime i eat tachycardia comes on up to 115bpm. My cardiologist has done ecg/ekg and eco and holiter monitor said its not afib. I am anxiously awaiting my results this week.

Has anyone had this happen to them if so what can cause it?

hi. could be something like gord. gastro osophogeal reflux disorder. indegestion, things of this nature; that cause a little anxiety and increases your heart rate. await the dr's results. i get tachy and more so with stress and anxiety. i range at 110 on a good day!! keep calm and strong. let us know how it goes. gastro symptoms can mimic heart symptoms. take care.

Hi,

Is it every time you eat anything, even drinking plain water?

I get tachycardia if I eat any of my trigger foods. I had a real bad bout a few days ago when I ate a half a cream filled doughnut. HR was 160 for a couple of hours even after taking Inderal and Atenolol and doing Valsalva maneuver.

You might try Valsalva - it's just pushing hard like going to bathroom. Look it up online. It works pretty well for stopping minor tachy vents for me.

My tach is supraventricular, not afib. It did however, send me to the hospital a few times.

115 isn't awful, unless it goes on for a long time. I get treated only when mine gets to at least 145 for a really long time or goes to 160 and I can't get it stopped.

You might try keeping a food journal (put that in the search box at the top of the page). My allergist had me do that, and we found my group of trigger foods.

Please see my 'Hello' post for background.

I was admitted to the ER with a VT of 227 that lasted 40+ minutes after a lunch that included a burger, French fries and a beer. about 3-weeks later after a EP study I had a ICD implanted. 9-days after my ICD was implanted I was shocked because my heart rate went from 60 to 250 after a pizza ( yes I are the whole thing) and a beer.

I'm convinced there's a connection between food, especially over eating and the heart. They're called 'Heart Attack' burgers for a reason, right?
VT- 7/14/15
EP- 8/4/15
Heart MRI 8/5/15
ICD 8/5/15 Medtronic Evera XT DR
Shock. 8/14/15
ATP. 8/14/15

Wow! That was really high. I've had cardioversion for 140 - 165 lasting 6 hours and not stopping. But that is about as high as I usually get from food triggers.

I presume you've changed your eating habits.

Is the ICD doing it's job?
