Re: Heart Palpitations after Eating

From: Nancy


OH YES!! It has totally disabled me. It happens about 20 minutes after I eat... EVERY TIME... and severe palpitation linger for many hours, only beginning to slow a bit before the next meal. I have acid reflux disease, and I BELIEVE the vagus nerve is affected somehow, but doctor's look at me like I am from another planet! Oh no, they say, that is not the reason for your palpitations! What a ridiculous comeback!!! I AM HAVING THEM WHEN I EAT ONLY!! That is enough proof for me. ANYONE ELSE CARE TO COMMENT? thanks. Take care. Nancy at
