    Hi Mags,

    I have not heard of this and I would think you would be best to get it checked out by your doctor as it will help to put your mind at ease.

    Mags, I know if I drink strong coffee it will send my heart beating fast.

    I have not a clue about headache pills.

    Where you also drinking a lot of tea and coffee?


    The first few days of the diet your body is going through major adjustment and withdrawal from carbs.

    You do need to take it easy.

    Sorry I can not be of more help on this, but would still recommend professional medical opinion on it.

    This would be my position on it.

    Love Mini xxx

    Yeah, I have that, my heart goes about 110bmp in my sleep. I would recommend getting it checked though. My docs blamed the diet for it, but it still continued when I wasn't on it....so jury is out on that one.

    Caffine, excercise, stress, anxiety are just a few of the things that can make your heart go fast.

    Or......you might just be like that, like I am. They'll probably want to do a few ECG's, maybe a 24 hour tape and an echocardiogram on you. Nothing to worry about. They tried to give me beta blockers cause they said it was anxiety.......er........anxious in my sleep? me thinks not.

    Best of luck!!
