    Default Freaking out...My heart is racing like crazy...

    Last night I noticed that I was a little short of breath. I thought maybe I was getting a cold or something because I actually sound a little wheezy when I breathe out hard. Well, its the same this morning. I feel OK, so I went to the YMCA and did an hours hills prgram on the treadmill. No problems. But I've been sitting here in my office and my heart is flying! And I'm a little short of breath just like last night. I only took half of a 37.5 Phen this morning. It's got me so freaked out that I walked next door to the pharmacy and did the blood pressure machine. My BP is good. 118 / 68, but my pulse is 109 beats per minute. Can low blood sugar do this to you, because I think I've had too little to eat today. I'm freaking out just a little.....

    Sometimes I have that problem too. I mostly get it when I am sitting down which is so unclear to me. I guess how I sit may be restricting my dyaphram or something but I don't know what it is either. Even when I was 300 pounds I still could breath but since I have been on this med I notice it every once in a while. It's not a daily constant though. My heart beating has been ok otherwise.

    I ate a meal replacement bar that I picked up in the pharmacy and a cup of apple sauce. I just checked my pulse again. It's down some now to 94 beats per minute and I'm not quite so freaked out. I Googled the symptoms of low blood sugar and rapid heart rate is one of them. Maybe I just didnt eat enough today and then did a whole hour of cardio on top of that. And probably the thread about aortic anyerisms didnt help much either. I don't like heart troubles...

    That's happen to me too. It lasted a couple of hours. I figured it was bp too. But mine was fine. I thought I was going to pass out. I sat down and rested and eventually I was fine.

    I get that quite often but haven't had it since I started phen. My normal resting heart rate used to be over 100 bpm, and now is down to the low 90's consistently... so when it would race, it would get up to 150 or more... scared the poo out of me. Now, I do get it when my blood sugar is low or I haven't eaten enough... so make sure you are getting something in your body every few hours. Good luck!!

    YES I HAVE THAT PROBLEM TO. I'M WONDERING IF PHEN IS WORTH MY HEART WORKING OVER TIME.
    MY DR. SAID I HAVE A IRREGULAR HEART BEAT BEFORE I STARTED PHEN,NOW IT IS WORSE!
    MY FREIND WAS IN THE HOSPITAL FOR OTHER REASONS, AND THE CARDIOLOGIST HAD TO COME IN WHEN HER HEART BEAT WAS OVER 110, SO ALL YOU GUYS BE CAREFUL. YOUR HEART RATE SHOULD NOT BE OVER 105 WHEN YOUR DOING NOTHING, THAT MEANS YOUR HEART IS WORKING OVERTIME!!!

    Just a quick update on my momentary freak out this afternoon. All is better now. I ran by the house on the way to get kids from school and grabbed a yogurt and a bunch of grapes. By the time I had the kids all rounded up I was back to normal. I just ate dinner. We had a crock pot meal that we call "beef over rice". Anyway, I'm al better now. I think I just had low blood sugar from not eating....

    Thanks guys.

    Here's the thing about working out on an empty stomach, it's great at increasing your metabolism, but so is phen, so if you combine the two, your heart rate will be up a bit for a while. Especially if you don't eat enough calories!

    Whenever my bike rides go over an hour and/or 750 calories I have difficulty keeping my heart rate down and end up getting nautious. All of this goes away if I eat about 200 calories. You might want to try eating some berries or a piece of fruit before a morning workout! Good luck!
