I sometimes get a heart rate between 110 - 120 bpm without doing any exercise, I often feel light headed and my hands start to shake at the same time?

I sometimes get a heart rate between 110 - 120 bpm without doing any exercise, I often feel light headed and my hands start to shake at the same time?

Panic Attack: At that heart rate, your heart is probably reacting to a stimulus rather than being the cause. Your best diagnosis would be a reaction of your body to stress or a panic attack. If you are breathing fast at the time, that can cause lightheadedness and shaking of the hands. When this happens, try to hold your breath or at least slow it down and relax. If it persists, you should see a doctor. ...Read more

Im a vegetarian and everytime i drink protein shakes, eat peanut butter or fruit i get shaky and light headed. What causes that?

Im a vegetarian and everytime i drink protein shakes, eat peanut butter or fruit i get shaky and light headed. What causes that?

Blood sugar/allergy: This is unusual. If these symptoms occur a couple hours after eating fruit it could be due to hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) but that would be unlikely after protein/fats.You may be allergic/sensitive to these foods (or at least one of the ingredients in the shake).If you are allergic to these foods it may be related to imbalances of intestinal flora. I advise seeing a holistic doctor.See comment:. ...Read more
