Heart pounds after eating?
I've recently weaned off a beta blocker. I was on it for 6 years, and I realize now why I was on it (besides just controlling BP). Whenever I eat, my heart pounds and goes about 100 beats per minute. This lasts a couple hours.
Last night I made the mistake of having some milk in the evening (which can make it worse), and my heart pounded most of the night and was at about 100 beats a minute.
Anyone else have this problem after they eat? It seems to be worse with carbs and higher salt stuff, but seems to always be there.
Yes, I am overweight......but I'm trying to use the exercise bike, and it really makes me feel bad, since I seem to have such an over-reactive sympathetic system, especially off the beta blocker.
