I can't find a definition of subjective palpitations. I have idiopathic tachycardia and was just doing some reading. I?
Meaning: Subjective palpitations means you feel your heart skipping or racing, but they haven't been documented. Objective palpitations means they have been documented.
Vasodilators: Vasodilators do what the name implies: these compounds dilate blood vessels, resulting in a decrease in blood pressure. As the baroreceptors detect this, they command the autonomic nervous system to increase adrenaline output. This, in turn, increases heart rate and increases cardiac irritability.See 1 more doctor answer

Does glutamate affect the cardiological system? Could it play a role in tachycardia and palpitations?
A bit too gee-whiz: Glutamate receptors exist in peripheral tissues, i.e., outside the CNS. Animal research in this field goes back 15-20 years. Cardiac effects in animal studies are indirect, i.e. neurally mediated. Not myocardium-mediated. Effects in humans at this point are mostly conjectural. There's a lot of totally unscientific sensationalist drivel on the Web about how bad MSG is. So no jumping to conclusions.
