Rapid Heart beat after I nap

Hi, I am new here. I am reading other comments and many are having the same issue I am dealing with. When I wake up from a nap after dinner GENERALLY NOT after a full nights sleep and usually when I am having a difficult stressful day. I wake up WITH A RAPID heart beat I then take my Klonopin 0.5 mg. and usually, after about 1/2 hour my heart rate goes back to normal. I am reading it can be due to anxiety. Can a drop in blood sugar cause this also as well as my anxiety. Since I have a few glasses of wine at dinner Should I seek medical attention

If you go from a resting state to a non resting state your heart rate will increase naturally. Maybe you have anxiety that is making you think about it to much. You might be well to see a doctor just to put your mind at ease.

Jimatorm. Thank you for your response. I appreciate your comment and will check with my heart Dr. But my gut feeling is I know it happens when I have either just had a very stressful dinner especially after having a few glasses of wine. Nevertheless better safe then sorry.

The stress would raise your heart rate too. Why do you have stressful dinners?

I am a very emotional person and if other family members are having a bad day and bring it home it effects me. Especially if I have to walk on eggshells and worry that I cannot say anything.

Do they all have a lot of stress in their lives?

Yes they do, I am talking about my son and his girlfriend we all live together, WHICH BTW I love I enjoy them very much. I get very upset when they are upset with one another.

Do you drink the wine to cope with it?

There are nights that I do and other nights just to have wine with dinner.

So this is all causing your anxiety do you think?

I really think so, I of course have the normal stress issues, in life things always happen which cannot be avoided thats life, but I notice when it comes to them its much worse.

Hello, just a quick suggestion...tell them that their bickering is causing you to have anxiety. Arrange a "stress word" with them. When you say this word they need to stop and change the subject. My word is actually 2... peanut butter. When I say it at the dinner table the topic gets changed.

That's a great idea.. Thank you

For hear palpitations, tachycardia, I eliminated microwave cooking and caffein. Much much better. For anxiety I'm giving my wife this supplement:

It's cortisol (stress chemical) when you sleep the cortisol in your body rises, that is why lots of people have anxiety in the mornings but it happens with naps too. My phychiatrist told me this
