How do I stop palpitations and a pounding heart heart without medication?
20 years ago, I was diagnosed with anxiety and panic disorder. Just out of the blue, I started feeling like I was going to pass out and had a terrible fear of dying. Then the racing heart started which I have since then had an ablation to fix the racing heart. That was about 15 years ago. I then stopped all beta blockers and anxiety meds and started my family. About 2 months ago, the anxiety started again and I was put on Lexapro which was working great up until last week. I got up in the night to use the bathroom and when I went back to bed, I could feel my heart pounding sort of and then not race but beat fast for no reason. That happened 2 other nights and then last night, it started pounding, I guess just enough to where I was aware of the beating and then I would get scared. I went to bed and went to sleep but each time I woke up, I would get scared and it would start again so I went to the er and sure enought, everything checked out ok. EKG, heart monitor, blood pressure. They gave me xanax, and a beta blocker which worked and also a script for each. I don't want to have to take drugs to feel good. I'm so afraid once I go off the beta blockers that it will happen again, when I get scared then that just makes it worse. My thryoid was checked also and apparently was fine, haven't heard anything back. Up until the other night, I was drinking lots of caffeine. Started my day off with a couple cups of coffee and then diet coke throughtout the day, however I have stopped drinking all caffeine. Just decaf coffee in the morning.

find a cardiologist keep your appointments , take your medications , if you have a problem with the medications call your doctor he/she make adjustments . try to stay calm better for you and your health .

The caffeine was a big part of your problem with an irregular heart beat. Giving up caffeine in coffee is part of the battle, but the pop you mentioned, unless you drink the caffeine free Diet Coke, is worse than regular coffee! Another culprit is tea! Tea ( hot or iced ), has a lot of caffeine. Switch to caffeine free coffee, tea and soda pop and you'll be better off. I had an Echo-Cardiogram several years ago for an irregular heart beat I could feel at night. I gave up all caffeine in the drinks I mentioned and a couple of days ago the doctor said he would cut my heart medication for now just because you can't stop it "cold turkey", and then the next physical exam next year, I should be able to be medicine free for any heart problem. Caffeine is one heck of a stimulant! Good luck!

1. Stop and smell the roses 2. Don't worry, be happy. Sounds silly I know, but it will help.
