Thank you so much for your response. I looked at Charlie's posting and I had planned to do exactly as you suggested --research it. My doctor wanted to put me on a beta blocker but like you, I was concerned because my resting heartrate is low. I'm not going to even consider meds until all test results are in. I cannot express how much I appreciate hearing from you and Peppermint88.
Last week I started having rapid heart beats while swallowing food. I went to Urgent Care tonight and they gave me an EKG while I ate a protein bar. Sure enough, my heart beat went from that of a fit, athletic person into hyper drive when I swallowed, beating between 180-190. He's going to consult with a cardiologist in the morning, and mentioned I may need meds. Like you, I have a feeling this is tied to a gastrointestinal issue. Years ago I was diagnosed as having the H. Pylori bacteria, and there are certain foods I just have to stay away from or everything flares up. Does this sound like what you have? What did you find most successful in treating it? I really appreciated reading your post.
