Have delay heartbeat and severe congestion. Have stopped eating dairy products. Is it an allergy reaction?

I had a heart attack May 2011 95% blockage. I kept having what they called delay heartbeat and severe congestion My heart doctor said not to worry about it - I had stop eating dairy because I got sick and had to do antibiotics, now I noticed that when I eat dairy I get congested, so I stay away from it, But I also noticed when I eat chocolate the delayed heartbeat got worse Therefore I stopped eating chocolate for about three weeks and had no delay heartbeats in that time - I just had a cup of hot chocolate - I wanted to see if it was indeed the chocolate and low and behold I have a delayed heartbeat. Will it just pass? is it an allergy reaction? Should I be concerned? Should I take a benadryl or my inhaler?
Too bad I can't afford to pay for your services thanks anyways

Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

Irregular heart beats need to be DOCUMENTED by ElectroCardioGram (EKG). Standard ECG records the electrical activity of the heart, for a few seconds. It can detect the arrhythmia occurring during that time only. If the episode occurs randomly or precipitated by a specific activity like exercise, one needs Holter or event monitor. Holter records for days; Event monitor for weeks / Holter records continuously / Event monitor only at certain times .

Anaemia / Anxiety / Alcohol / Tobacco (smoking) / Caffeine (too much coffee, cola) / Medicines like Phenylephrine used for ‘cold’; Salbutamol used for asthma and so on are common causes...
Fever / Thyroid / Vitamin D, calcium and magnesium may all have a role... / Illicit ‘drugs’ like Amphetamine are notorious to cause abnormal beats / At times, abnormal nerve paths in the heart (bypass tracts) are responsible!

See your doctor...

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
