Also if I eat to fast or to big of bites my heart will beat very fast for about 10 minutes or more. Im 5 9, 31 years and 215 pounds. No health problems besides this. It makes it so I can t enjoy meals anymore.

Please get an Electrocardiogram done. If it is normal there is no need to worry.

You need to definitely reduce your weight and get rid of the anxiety.

You will be fine soon. Do not worry.
