Tachy

I was wondering if anyone noticed what triggers their tachycardia. I have been noticing that I wake up in the night with it. Obviously not related to getting up, etc. I also find that if I overdo it, activity wise, the next day I am very tachy. This morning I was running 120 at 7am while getting some morning tea. I feel like I am vibrating and then can't get enough air. Any tricks on bring the heart rate down?

Hi and welcome!

If you are not on meds for it, you can sit or squat. The doc that I saw at Vanderbilt suggested that I quickly drink 16 oz. of anything not carbonated. If I don't take my Inderal, my HR is usually 126 to stir my morning coffee...welcome to the club!

I have found that lifting things sets off tachy episodes. I cant' lift my nephew any longer, now that he weights more than 25 lbs. I talked to Dr. Grubb and he said that it was very likely that lifting could do it. I try not to lift anything heavier than my purse now, so that i don't set off an episode.

also, if your tea is caffeinated, that definitely won't help your tachy!!! i used to drink green tea everyday, until i realized it was the cause of my daily runs of psvt, which were the symptom i HATED the most. fortunately now i am on beta blockers, but even without it, cutting out the caffeine alone really calmed down the heart.
