Foods high in caffiene may cause a problem, spicy foods and MSG. If you have food intolerances this can cause a raised heart rate. Keep a diary and make a note of all foods eaten and symptoms experienced this may help indentify the offending food/drink. Go and get and ECG, 24hr monitoring would be best.
Hello: Thank you for your response regarding my query - what foods contribute to tachycardia. I was aware that caffiene was a factor however was not aware that MSG can causse this situation as well. I have had a Hoylter monitoring (24 hr. evaluation) and several ECG's. I will be seeing the cardiologist for a follow up this week so hopefully he can add to this list.
I have learned to listen to intuition and it is for this reason I seek food-related causation. Once again thank you for taking the time and energy to address this question.
