You might want to know what your options are before doing anything.

My heart races quite often, can go to 130 while I’m resting at which point I feel confused and weak and so cold, I generally crash out for a few hours then wake up fine. I have had tests done which came back normal, i have identified some food triggers... Parmesan cheese and msg are on my no go list. I know it’s difficult not to get stressed with heart issues. I felt reassured when tests showed my heart is working properly and also hearing from my rheumatologist that it’s a common problem with his other fibromyalgia patients.
