MH?: If you indeed do have mh then you should have been treated in a hospital setting. Not only can it cause a deadly increase in muscle metabolism, but it also can increase heart rate. I would recommend against any stimulant like caffeine right now. Make sure with your doctor that you have mh. Mh is a medical emergency!
