Re: Rapid heart rate after eating?
Eating does increase the heart rate. I dont know why, i presume that as your body digests the food i suppose your heart is required to do more work. Lots of people experience this. Perhaps someone else can expand?
Panic disorders, worrying and heart problems are all triggers for each other. If you panic your heart beats faster, then you worry and panic more and so your heart beats even faster. Its a viscous cycle which is hard to break.
I do it myself, i get worked up and everything just gets worse and worse until i end up thinking im about to die!
Its really hard but try not to let it worry you and dont focus on it. Once you get your heart out of your head you wont notice it.
Just keep your doctors appointments and get it checked/sorted out. Its the only way you will be satisfied that there is probable nothing at all wrong!
Take it easy dude!!
