Re: Heart Palpitations after Eating



Hi, I've just started getting palpitations after eating. This started a couple of days ago. I have them at the moment. They have been going on now for 90 minutes.

A word of warning about the Beta Blockers. I was put on these 5 years ago because of a racing heart which it took 4 years to discover that it was due to a stomach infection. It took me 4 years to get off the Beta Blockers because your heart beat rate increases when you stop taking them. You become a junky. They also weaken the heart.
