Constant fast beating heart feeling shaky almost like I will loose it and pass out??

Anxiety ??

Hello everyone I am dealing with a sore throat these last few days the other night I took cold and flu meds which tend to give me heart palps but I was desperate wanting relief and also I've been drinking one cup of coffee in the morning lately and the last two days I feel odd as if I'm in a dream and my chest feels like its giddy shaky my heart has been beating faster then usual everyonce in a while I do experience hard palps and a feeling as if at whatever moment I'm going to just faint. Is it the caffiene and meds that made my body be on high anxiety mode??

Hi there,

It could be but I would say it is your anxiety that is fuelling this.

I have a cup of coffee in the mornings and stick to herbal teas during the day.

Check out the websites Headspace and

I can highly recommend these sites as they are very helpful in keeping everything calm:) x


Coffee, cold remedies, high energy drinks and decongestants make me feel lousy. I feel wound up shaky and defines truly more anxious so I never have them. I have one decaf coffee a day and drink decaf and fruit teas.


What is it with all this mania about coffee? All over London now people are running around town with a cup of coffee in their hand and two white strings coming out of their ears in a state of perpetual rush. In fact the other night I was watching a film and the lady detective every shot had a cup of coffee (it might have been tea ) in her hand or clutched close to her chest like a third tit. Shame 'cause apart from the mugshots it was a very good film. Fair cup and all that. I'm going down the pub. Assuming they are still some about. AFCnuts
