Within the last couple of months, after I eat the my hearts to race. It started out of no where and has been happening more and more frequently. It happens at least a couple times a weeks. I am not sure if it is type of food I am eating, or if it has to do with my medication.
I don't really have much of an appetite anymore but when I am hungry I find myself eating very little. When I eat fast it is the worst. but even when I try to slow down my eating it occasionally happens. Once my heart starts racing I start to feel nauseated. I am trying to get an appointment with my doctor but I am wondering if anyone experiences any symptoms like this.

The medication is Concerta. I take 36mg every morning with breakfast. I have been taking it for awhile now and I have been reading different long term use symptoms of it and wanted to know if maybe that has something related to my issue.
Hopefully someone can help!
