I had heart palpations and jitteryness, nervousness and anxiety. Can it be for caffeine?

Last Monday about 2 weeks ago, i stayed up all night drinking pepsi. After that, I was jittery, nervousness, heart palpations. After that, the heart palpations went away and my heart was beating normal. But my mind was cloudy and it was fatique all day long. The symptoms lasted but got a little bit better each day. Yesterday, i drink 2 glasses of pepsi. And then i waited a hour and went to bed. I couldnt sleep that much last night. I was up and down. So when i get up this morning around 7 i notice i had heart palpations and jitteryness, nervousness and anxiety . The anxiety and that was prob from me thinking about it and being worried lol. But when im focused on something i barely notice them. I was wondering could it be from the caffeine? causing this? I ve also had like cramps and gas.

It could be, but I would not play around with my health. Go see a doc to be sure. (And QUIT drinking so much Pepsi.) :)

Hello,1 week ago I jumped out of bed and I thought I was having a heart attack, I drove myself to the ER and they told me it was a panic attack. Now I have anxiety, nervousness, starting to have phobias, mental confusion, faintness. It seems as though when I go outside I am having a fear of the sky, I have been an outdoorsmen for all my life, I look at the mountains and I get light headed and panic. I am 37. I have gone on extensive trips by myself and am somewhat a survivalist. It seems as though now, in one week, I had a hard time driving because I was getting bewildered at the sights around me. What do you think, I am shocked. I am going through some things that are stressfull, and life changing. I eat very healthy but may be lacking in something.

Hello Doc, Okay so, I smoked weed 3 months ago for a period of 3 weeks (never before that, and never after that).. During my last time, I smoked too much of it, and within 5 minutes after smoking it, I went into a intense panic attack/anxiety attack. I started feeling weird, I felt like I was gonna die, I could barely speak, and my heart felt like it was beating extremely fast and it was gonna explode. I tried my best to stay calm, but the feeling was horrible. I sat in one place for almost 2 hours, and then I finally attempted to walk to the bathroom and wash my face, so I could come back to reality. Finally after like 3 hours, I could walk and function. But speaking was difficult, because whenever I tried to speak I used to run out of breath. My left hand and feet used to feel numb and tingly and my chest tight. I could finally speak properly(without running out of breath) after like 2 days, but my left hand and left feet still kept feeling tingly and my chest tight for a period of 5-6 days until it slowly vanished. Now its been almost 3 months since that happened, and I am functioning perfectly normal. But still, from time to time, I keep getting anxious/nervous for no reason and my left hand and feet start getting tingly and cold, and my chest area feels tight. Okay so my question now is, could it be that I had a heart attack at that time? . I am worrying that now every time my chest feels tight and my hands and feet tingly, I am having small heart attacks. I am really scared. I am 21 now, and I had my heart checked almost 8 years ago because I used to have irregular rhythms in my heart beats/ heart palpitations and I was worrying about it. But after all the tests, they said my heart was perfectly normal and said it was just a anxiety problem. So whats happening with me now? Please help. Thank you

Hello, I have a question if this is some sort of anxiety? Whenever I m in a fight or think of something bad in the past, I get very nervous and and feel crampy and sick from it. My heart beats really fast and I ll have to breath in and out sometimes to calm myself down. Also I sometimes may have diarrhea from it... It happens so easily about 4-5 times a week now, help?

I keep feeling my heart beat multiple times, too fast. It only happens for a minute or so, then it comes back again. And it usually leaves my out of breath. I went to the doctor last month for anxiety attacks because i also have sharp pains in my wrist, fingers, toes, back, and just about everywhere else. Do you think my heart is beating to fast over anxiety? Or is it something else?

I'm 33 years old with low blood pressure every time I get it checked. The low blood pressure has been going on for years. I just thought I normally have low blood pressure. It was 92/50 las time it was checked. I am 5'2" 165lbs. I gained 15lbs with my pregnancy. My delivery lasted 33 hours and was very stressful. I have loridosis, back pain, heat sensations in my left leg, chest pain and shortness of breath. I just recently went to get checked out by the doctor about dizzy spells and my heart stopping and rapidly starting back. I was diagnosed with RBBB. I'm really scared, because I can feel that my heart is not working like it should. I have a lot of stress with family matters and I would say since I was 13 I've had ongoing high anxiety. I know that is not healthy. What would you say are the reasons that I have RBBB.

Every once in a while I can feel what I believe is a skipped, or extra heartbeat. I have no pain or dizziness or shortness of breath along with this. I do suffer from panic/anxiety and I am currently on Xanax for it. I am also on Levothyroxine for Hypothyroidism. My question is this: I have a trip to Cedar Point coming up in August and I want to know if I should be concerned about going on thrill rides and rollercoasters with my family.
