hard heartbeat

2 hours after drinking something with caffeine my hearts pounds harder - not faster just harder. This goes on for an hour or two more. Why?

Hi.. Caffeine can stimulate the heart causing the symptoms.. You may have to reduced caffeine consumption.. If your age is above 40 years, you may have to consider getting a cardiac evaluation done..
