I am newly diagnosed with Atrial Flutter. The only thing I have experienced was a heartbeat of 170 - ER - Cardioconversion - Release. No other symptoms.
The cardiologist told me to cut down on coffee. (I was drinking 4-5 cups a day.) He said to keep it at 1-2 cups a day.
Over the last few weeks I have kept my coffee at 1-2 cups. Now twice, suddenly out of nowhere, I have had major coffee overdoes symptoms. No heart involvement at all. But it seemed like I had drunk 50 cups of coffee! (The last time I felt anything like this was when my liver was injured with Levaquin. I had extreme coffee intolerance out of the blue in that experience too.)
It feels like typical "too much caffeine" feeling - jitteriness, jumpiness, fidgeting, anxiety, excitement, flushing of the face, muscle twitching, etc. and NOT any heart racing, beating, etc.?
Mainly jitteriness and face flushing.
So, when you all say coffee affects you how does it feel? Like the "too much caffeine" jitteriness feeling or heart symptoms?
What does having caffeine feel like??
Sorry, I am new to this and trying to figure out what the heck is going on!!
