Our expert says:
Did you have an ECG (or stress ECG) and was this normal?
Fast heart beat is called tachycardia and is usually caused by abnormalities in the electrical "wiring" of the heart or due to stimulants like coffee, alchohol, tobacco, diet drugs or some prescription drugs like Eltroxin.
It can also be a sign of anxiety.
If you have excluded all stimulants from your diet, you have no heart disease and you still have these symptoms - ask your GP if you could take a low dose of Beta blocker like Inderal?
