The high caffeine levels in Red Bull can be toxic and if you are getting symptoms you really need to cut back. There have been a few deaths ASSOCIATED with but not clearly causally linked to high chronic consumption.

Can anybody advice me the reason for heart palpitation, especially in the night just before going to bed or in sleep. I checked with my Dr who checked ECG Cholestrol etc and said no problem and gave some vitamin tablets, then it decreased, after one week again started. Anybody have similar experiences?

Hi! I have had heart palpitations for years. However, they have gotten very pronounced in the last year. I have been doing better lately, but today I lifted and carried a semi-heavy laundry basket and have been having bad heart palpitations ever since. Resting helps some but I am afraid to move too much. Should I be concerned if lifting objects does this to me? It has happened before and my heart feels like it can t beat!
