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

What should I do from here?

I started taking aspiren regimen 3 days ago without asking my doctor I have rapid heart beat and heart palpatations and anxiety disorder. I thought it would help, I felt better for last three days no rapid heartbeat as bad as it usually is but got severe headaches. Should I continue taking it today, also I thought it would be good for arthritis in my lower back, but the headaches terrible. My blood pressure has been low for the last month 110 over 78 and since taking the regimen it has gone up to 120 to 130 I think that s a better blood pressure

Hello ! I am a 38 year old female. I have been having really bad dizziness for almost 12 years now. It started with a vertigo attack out of the blue in 2000 . I had not been sick prior to this and was in good health. After the vertigo attack I was left with a rocking sensation and general off balanced feeling.This was all day every day to some degree. Smetimes it was bad and sometimes I could handle it. I would lay in bed at night and feel like I was on a ship out at sea. The doctors thought it was anxiety but I knew my body and knew this was not from anxiety. I had many blood tests for diabetes , thyroid, anemia and others to check for deficiencies and many others. I had ultra sounds of my heart, ekg s, blood test s to check heart enzymes , liver function and kidney function. I had an EEG also. All of these tests came back normal. I had a c-scan of my head and neck and also a MRI. They did find a small meningioma tumor in the right front lobe of my brain but said that it was benign and was not anything to worry about. I then saw a neurologist who said he didn t think it was brain related. I then went to an ENT and had the ENG and other test done. He determined I had menieres disease due to symptoms and an abnormal caloric test. I started vestibular rehab and felt better after a while. I still had dizziness everyday all day but it was much more bearable and I got on with life again. The last eight months symptoms have came crashing back really bad again. It started with me being really tired and way dizzier then normal. I was under a tremendous amount of pressure at work and just every day life. When it got really bad I was driving home from a restaurant with my kids. We had just went out to eat and it was Asian food, which I know is packed with sodium and causes issues with people with menieres disease. Anyway, I was driving back and started feeling really tired and kept yawning. I then felt really bloated and like my jeans were too tight. So I felt like I couldn t breathe well and kept yawning over and over. I then started feeling like I may pass out. I stopped at the red light and put my car in park just in case I did. Well it passed after a minute so I continued home which was only a few blocks away. When I got out of the car I felt really shaky and weak and just wanted to lay down. My mom checked my sugar levels and it was a little high, like 180. SO I layed down and thought it was the food, For the next few weeks I felt really tired and still dizzy but not the passing out feeling. Then one night at work a really overwhelming tired feeling came over me and I fet like I was going to pass out again. They called the emergency department and they transported me to the hospital. I hadn t ate much that day and they thought it was because of that because all of the blood tests, ekg, and chest x-rays came back normal. I kept being really tired and dizzy and I finally had to quit work and even give up driving because every time I drove I would feel dizzy and weak. I went back to the ENT and he redid the ENG and everything came back normal this time.He said he thinks I still have menieres but isn t sure if that is what it is since testing was normal this time. I had another MRI, which was no different then the last one. I am just not sure where to go from here and I don t really think my doctors know either and are chalking it up to anxiety. I know that I do have anxiety but it is caused by the way I feel. Any advice or suggestions would be appreciated. Medicines - Lotrel for HBP - controlled on medicine. Have been on for years. Atenolol foe heart palpitations- works wonderfully - have been on for years also Symptoms Dizziness -Whirling in head- sometimes quick vertigo lasting a few seconds- feeling as though on an elevator when it stops - Foggy headed - sometimes can t concentrate due to head symptoms Weakness Fatigued Eyes feel blurred sometimes or hard to focus Walking makes dizziness worse / laying down brings relief / when standing still in one place I feel like I may fall over Head pressure and ear pressure Ringing in ears at times Sorry this is so long but I wanted to give as much information as possible. Thank you in advance.
