) but decaff for the rest of the time, I feel alot better for it.
The tightness in my chest is gone and the palpatations have eased.
Eventually I got to sleep and woke up the next morning feeling very tired. I got severe tachycardia after drinking brandy several evenings because I was tired in my earlier years and was given a sedative in Casualty to stop it ECG I think was normal then.
This tired feeling lasted for most of the following day. I got episodes of irregular heart beats different to palpitations quieter after I cut a large area of grass and after exertion in my fifties.
I have suffered from heart palpitations for years (I am only 34) I was diganosed with SVT and told my condition was a nuisance by a cardiologist. Nobody can give me an explanation.thank you for your reassuring explanation. Recently when I undertook a walk I got palpitatitions just below mt chest bone.
One thing I have noticed though is when I drink coffee it always seems to give me a tight feeling in my chest even though I may only have 1/2 cups a day!
I started to suffer from palpitations about six months after the op and it was thought I would have to get a pace maker but my cardioligist then put me on a low dose of beta blocker as I am on other medication for high blood pressure, and can only be on a small dose because it would interfer with my medication.
This was working fine no problems and then I notice over the past 6 - 8 weeks they have started to come back and seem to be getting stronger and and I am aware of them most of the time with a feeling in my chest and then up my neck. On the evening inquestion, for my dinner I had a plate of pasta with a pesto sauce and a glass of red wine, followed by a cup of coffee.
I think some people just cannot drink coffee at all, I find tea isnt as bad.
I am now switching to decaff but tell myself its real coffee!!
