I'm 65 years old and have had palpitations since I was 16. I heard that the condition was caused by the Darvon or Darvoset pain med that I was given after surgery when I was 16. It has been taken off the market for that very reason. I have recently found that eating a Red Delicious apple gives me immediate palpitations, and would like to know why. I have them a lot when I get tired or exhausted. I have never had a doctor believe me when I complain about palpitations. They just treat me like I'm crazy or a hypochondriac. My doc now has me on Bisoprolol-HCTZ (a beta blocker) that sometimes relieves the palps but now when I miss a dose the palps go wild. I haven't found any natural remedy that has worked but am willing to try the recipes that you all have advised.
this site is what i've been looking for. My heart palpations/dizzyness are what I believe to be food related. MSG Monosodium Glutemate is a big culprit and i'm just finding out that there are so many many other foods that hide MSG in the ingredients like yeast extract, yeast food, yeast nutrient and so on. I have 3 pages of ingredients that contain MSG so those of you who have these terrifying episodes read the labels stay away from coffee, chocolate, cheese aspertane, sucrolose (splenda) and the list goes on. any other info is surely welcomed. Would love to hear from those that are experiencing heart palps and what their doing. thanks, barbara
