Fast heart beat, fear of palpitations


Quit smoking cigarettes last jan 19 2018. Quit rt after getting bad heart palpitations ands after numerous visits to er hospitals neg on chest xray also on blood work. Told me i was dehydrated and needed to drink at least 2 liters of water and to relax from anxiety causing panic attacks. So far been over 3wks smoke free and been taking Carvedilol beta blocker 2x daily 6.25mg each tablet. Prescribed from dr. And just 3 days ago started taking magnesium supp pill 2x daily and havent had bad episode. Any body have any suggestions or comments really appreciate

Congrats on quitting

Thank you very much for your comment 😁👍

I quit smoking a few times in the last 15 years. I’ve been smoke free now for over 6 years. Heart palpitations, pain, tightness in the chest, trouble breathing, have always been the early symptoms for me. Give yourself 3 months or so and I’m sure things will improve.

Good morning my friend, thank you for your great comment and for your encouragement and what u also experiencenced. Means a whole lot where i can not worry as much as im not alone. I will also share my update snd progress. Thanks again., u made my day brighter 😀👍

You quit smoking on my birthday lol Congrats to you! Dehydration can cause the frequent heart palps and such an easy thing to fix. The Carvedilol is a good drug and will help also with the palpitations. Sounds like you are going in the right direction, happy for you.

My only suggestion would be in giving yourself some "me" time every day with meditation, deep breathing or anything else that may work in relaxing your mind and body. Keep us updated on your progress and remember, we are always here to support you through this. Stay positive x
