I have anxiety and OCD about my heart rate and blood pressure. Can your heart beat go so fast you die? Often when I see it higher this the worst fear.
Yes. If sufficient tachycardia continues over time, it is possible to cause heart failure and eventually die. It would have to be significantly above sinus tachycardia >120 for hours or days. People with paroxysmal atrial tachycardia can have heart rates around 150-250bpm. Atrial flutter around 300bpm. Of course ventricular tachycardia and fibrillation leads to death quickly within minutes.
Could taking cod liver oil cause your heart rate to spike and blood pressure or would that just be anxiety and OCD worrying about the vitamins A&D?
Cod liver oil. In the U.S., it is unlikely to have significant deficiencies of either vitamin A or D. There is usually no need to take cod liver oil or any other supplement of these vitamins. Having said that, cod liver oil does not usually cause the symptoms you're describing. They certainly could be due to anxiety. I would stop the cod liver oil, and if the symptoms persist, see your doctor. Good luck. Read more...
