Can multivitamins cause palpitations? I take it after dinner and my palpitations come before bedtime 10-11pm.

Can multivitamins cause palpitations? I take it after dinner and my palpitations come before bedtime 10-11pm.

No: Bedtime is a really common time for one to experience palpitations as you are typically relaxed and not distracted. Palpitations may be more noticeable when you are in the recumbent position as well. Taking your MVI (multivitamin) in the evening is a timing coincidence; MVI (multivitamin)s are not associated with palpitations You could experiment by taking the MVI (multivitamin) in the morning. Good wishes:) ...Read more

Let stomach empty...: Our stomachs empty at different rates, depending upon our physiology and the nature of the meal eaten. Fatty meals tend to slow down stomach emptying. Diabetics may also have slower emptying. The main issue with sleeping after a meal is suffering backing up of stomach contents if the stomach has not emptied. Rule of thumb -- give 2-3 hours for emptying, or elevate upper body upon retiring. ...Read more

Is it ok to have a snack 1.5 hours - 2 hours after breakfast? I wanted a snack only 1 1/2 hrs after breakfast, then ate it! Am I eating TOO much?

Is it ok to have a snack  1.5 hours - 2 hours after breakfast? I wanted a snack only 1 1/2 hrs after breakfast, then ate it! Am I eating TOO much?

Maybe: The way to tell if you are eating too much is by tracking your weight and watching to see if it is going up or down. If you are at a healthy weight already and you stay there, then the amount of food you're eating is appropriate. If you are gaining weight and need help reeling in your appetite, contact your doctor or a dietitian. Good luck. ...Read more

Sick and dizzy after exercise. Only after salsa class?

2 main possibilities: If someone feels ill after exercise in general it makes me suspicious they have adrenal fatigue- see http://www.Adrenalfatigue.Org/ but if you can exercise in other locations without problem & only feel sick after salsa class i would be highly suspicious there is something in that class that makes you ill- perhaps the room is moldy, or maybe your classmates wear perfumes you react to.
