Thumping heart for 3/4 hours last night

I know this is crazy but I had wine & chinese food last night & spent all night with my heart racing in my chest. I woke me up & I could not go back asleep for the thumping

I get that quite often if I've eaten the "wrong" foods or if I'm having fluid retention problems. If it's the wrong foods, I drink water to flush them through. If it's fluid/bloating, I wait it out until I go to the bathroom several times. It's always a waiting game till the body balances itself out. The key is: don't do that very often. For me, the wine would have caused it. I don't have trouble with Chinese food. Then again, the place we go uses no MSG in their food. Perhaps you're sensitive to that. Hope you're feeling better today.
