When i wake up in morning perspiration starts to come on my palms but this happens more in summer season During day time my pulse remains fast and as day passes it becomes normal. I start to feel my heart beatafter eating lunch and breakfast.

Hello,

Probable cause of yours symptoms is reflux esophagitis with panic attack (anxiety neurosis) for treatment. No fried, crispy food, less oil in making of food. Lesser salt and spices. Properly placed meal timing.

Just plain 15 mins before breakfast drug tab neksium 40 mg to be given it has to be taken fir 6 week. No gross side effects. If symptoms persist, we evaluate it further to rule our heart and lung as underlying problem.

Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.
