My BP is fine, around 118/76. I'm 63; within 10 lbs of normal weight. No alcohol, 1/2 cup coffee a day. I eat a Vegan diet with sometimes Salmon, and several supplements, B Complex, a multi, C, E, D. Recently taking magnesium, potassium, CoQ10, garlic, vit K complex.

But my pulse is sometimes high, up to 150 and sometimes normal, 68.
Dr. says I have a 'glitch' in the electrical connection of my heart, thus the arrthymia.

Anyone have any ideas why it is often high? There has to be a better explanation and something I can do to get it normal. (that's why I'm trying the new supplements.)

    This might be my first post.

    Anyway...I had the same thing for years. Nothing wrong with my heart, low BP, just fairly frequent bouts of tachycardia. I always felt that it was something I was eating, but it took a long time to pin point it. Sometimes I wish I never had :) (not really). It was chocolate. I had my last bit of chocolate, and last episode, probably 2 years ago.

    Glad you found that Riley! Bummer - chocolate.
    Thanks for the attempt. I don't eat chocolate. Will keep looking.

    Hi Davy!

    My heart starts racing from histamine - which would include chocolate, but also caffein/tea, alcohol, fermented or matured foods. Perhaps thats something to look into? You can have histamine intolerance tested.
