    I've been having a heart rate of 110-130 bpm today without doing anything. This happened a lot in the past, but now it starts to scare me... Are there other people who have the same symptom?

    I had that happen for the first time back in 2010. I went way higher than 130, and I panicked and rushed myself to the hospital. They treated it like a heart attack but it wasn't. This went on for a few months, and I couldn't even lie down without my heart starting to race. After much trial and error, I read about Magnesium Taurate and started taking therapeutic doses of that. It took six months before it got manageable, but it still persisted. Then I I saw a specialist and he said that I had mild dysautonomia. He recommended extra salt and fluids, and elevating the head of my bed 4 to 6 inches, and working on mild exercise for my lower extremities. Some days it still goes up but it is nowhere as severe as it was five years ago.

    I am not saying that this is what you should do, but am just sharing my experience. I hope you get to the bottom of what is making your heart race. It can be very scary!:)

    Don't worry, I'm not panicking. This happend a lot of times before. :) It's just annoying that I can't do anything while this is going on.
    I know I'm magnesium deficient. Maybe this is related? I also have candida overgrowth and I'm witnessing die off because of the holidays...

    Candida die off it the worst! But maybe you should check out some of the discussions on magnesium in these forums.

    I think it's always wise to consult a physician about odd cardio symptoms even tho many PWME have them. Once treatable and/or dangerous things have been ruled out, symptomatic relief can be sought. For me, that's been a beta blocker which has calmed both my heart and the anxiety-like symptoms that arise as the body works to keep us alive when our heart races.

    Best wishes to you - it's scary and unsettling when this happens!

    Nope.
    Also: I had fever yesterday. So I thought, maybe it's the flu. But today all symptoms are gone... I guess no one has the flu for half a day.
