A 39-year-old female asked:

Would dysautonomia cause tachycardia at night (that wakes you up multiple times a night)? also, cause tach (up to 180) after eating large meals?

Need Morre thorough: THis Tachy up to 180bps need more complete eval. SVT, HYPERthyroid , OSA and Even Anxiety are potential causes of Tachy. 1st we look for Common beasts and when none found, THEN we look for the more rare ZEBRAS in the forrest. Never start out looking for the ZEBRA, (unusually Unlikely).
