Hi, I have had severe reactions to food, chemicals and medications that contain sulfur, sulfites, or sulfites. A build up of sulfites cause fast heart rate and some chest and back pain, minor but worry some. My allergist is great but trying to figure it out. I have lost a lot of weight and things that mildly bothered me before are now causing severe reactions. I need a safe bottled water to drink, I found one that seemed ok but is now causing heart rate to race and dizziness after 2 days of sipping it. Can anyone tell me a brand that is safe to drink and where I can find it? I'm pretty worried at this point and no one really believes me, especially at ER. Most of my friends think I am crazy at this point and making it up.
Any help is appreciated.

Welcome, Ana, to the forum.

For those not getting Razzles messages, there are threads in the forum if you put the keywords in the search box at the top of the page.

Ana, having tachycardia is not crazy. That's my main reaction to sulfites too. I've been in the ER several times, once needing a heart rhythm conversion (painful), once with a heart attack. Read some of my posts and google cardioesophageal reflex and linked angina.

To avoid the heart attack, keep your cholesterol under control. Coronary vasospasm can cause a cholesterol plaque in the artery to rupture - causing a heart attack. That's what happened to me.
