Hi DH, thanks so much for your reply, you know, I have been experimenting with my liquid intake since I googled ‘heart palpitations’ the other day because loads of sites mention dehydration. Unfortunately I am one of those people who take things a bit literally and I fall into the trap of being too dogmatic sometimes and I def. was not drinking enough and eating way too much for my body to handle. I have cut back on the amount of food I am eating, but still eating more than normal for me and upped my intake of liquids and have seen quite a marked improvement with the palpitations,
Hi Tina, thanks for your advice! you know last night I ate some ice-cream before I went to bed and I was actually a lot better, so I think that this maybe doing the trick, I also ate more intuitively yesterday too, before I had been eating anything and everything I could get my hands on, which was maybe a backlash from restricting myself so much in the past, but I was able to listen to my body more yesterday and I think that has helped. I did not eat so much, but ate more calorific food.
I am wondering if anyone knows whether the palpitations are connected to levels of salt or adrenal activity, I have read about this in the past but I am not sure?
