I had something similar happen a while back but I was drinking an energy drink. My heart would start pounding and I almost felt a little nauseous. So i then went to a doctor to see if he could tell me what was wrong. After some testes It was deduced that I have random anxiety attacks. I'm not saying thats what you have but these attacks are caused by stress, depression and an overwhelming amount of pressure from things and ppl around (health, work ie.) Look up the symptoms for anxiety and see if you fit. They can be triggered by lots of sugar and or caffeine.....

How long can caffeine affect anxiety? I had a panic attack the day after I had a chai latte. I have been off caffeine and alcohol for 10 months because I developed a panic disorder and this was the first caffeine in a long time. I had an iced passion iced tea a couple of months ago and had a lot of arrythmias the same day but no panic attack. Im wondering if there is a connection or just coincidence.

I recently took myself to A&E because my heart was racing and my blood pressure went up to 180/120. After staying in hospital for 4 hours all returned to normal and the ecg showed a normal but fast beat. Subsequently my gp gave me some info on panic attacks. All blood tests were normal. I have been getting a spate of them recently and pulse races to 120 and at present it is 100, my blood pressure is 170/92....normally it is 138/79. Are these just episodes of panic attacks and can this constant changing in pulse and blood pressure do any harm

I currently take diltiazem for irregular heart beat. I used to take celexa for anxiety for about 12 years. Was feeling ok with the anxiety and went off of it when I started diltiazem. Anxiety is flaring again. Would it be safe to take the celexa and diltiazem?

How long does it take for metoprolol to start working. I just started it last night. 25 mg. My bp reading at physicians was 159/98. I am having thyroid, hormonal and severe anxiety. Will the blood pressure med take a long time to take effect or should I start working soon? He also put me on visteril for anxiety. Are they safe to be taken at the same time?
