Could me drinking energy drinks excessively be making my heart beat feel more prominent? I drink upto 5 cans of monster a day. Have previously been hos

Yes. From Caffeine.: These "energy drinks" actually give you NO energy but a lot of caffeine (read the label) -- often a days' worth in 1 can! Caffeine is a (mild) stImulant, but in enough quantities it can cause irregular heart beats which may be the 'prominence' you describe. You can do a simple test: cut back gradually on caffeinated drinks over 1-2 months & then see if your symptoms are better. Takes willpower, th ...Read more

Why does my heart beat faster when I pee also I pee a lot am I drinking too much water? I drink probly 12 glasses a day cuz its sumer

Urination: The amount you pee will exactly equal the amount the you drink minus the amount you sweat. If it were otherwise, you would gradually either desiccate into sand or bloat up like a sponge. Your heart beats faster because you're metabolic demand has increased and your healthy young heart has responded appropriately to the need. If it were otherwise, you'd pass out each time you peed. ...Read more

Sometimes if I eat a normal to large meal I hear my heart beat against my stomach (the sound you hear when you drink a lot of liquids, but heart beat)?

Sometimes if I eat a normal to large meal I hear my heart beat against my stomach (the sound you hear when you drink a lot of liquids, but heart beat)?

Pulsation after meal: What you are likely experiencing is a normal phenomenon called a "parasympathetic shunt." When you are digesting food, blood is directed to the intestines and you may actually be able to detect an abdominal pulsation. Another possibility is that, if your abdomen becomes distended after a large meal, the pulsation of a large blood vessel, the aorta, may be transmitted throughout the abdomen. ...Read more

Can I mix claritin, (loratadine) Pepcid complete and drink alcohol? I have the Asian flush as they call it and get rapid heart beat, headache, red flush+warmth.

Can I mix claritin, (loratadine) Pepcid complete and drink alcohol? I have the Asian flush as they call it and get rapid heart beat, headache, red flush+warmth.

You can, but…: The Asian flush, as you term it, is caused by an enzyme which makes you metabolize alcohol into acetaldehyde. Since this is a genetic issue, Pepcid and Claritin (loratadine) will not help, although you can take them with alcohol in reasonable doses. Also, there is an increased risk of esophageal cancer with alcohol intake in patients with the Asian flush, so you should avoid regular drinking. Good luck. ...Read more

Needs exam: Your son needs to have a complete history and exam by his physician. Might be viral, but hard to tell without examining him.

My heart beat too fast even if in just get up?

My heart beat too fast even if in just get up?

Likely normal: It is normal for the heart to beat faster at certain times, including when you stand up. It is harder for it to get blood to the brain right when you stand (blood pools in legs) and so it beats faster. Afterward, should rapidly recover and beat 60-100x/minute. If concerned, let your physician know so s/he can perform an exam, ask more questions and order appropriate work up. Hope this helps! ...Read more
