Be still my heart
Could coffee and chocolate be the culprits in my recent fluttery chest syndrome? I have been told from several sources that coffee and chocolate can cause heart palpitations. Thinking back over Easter, I drank at least twice as much coffee as normal for me per day, and ate a lot of chocolate. I am going to the health food store today to buy more of that Barley Cup coffee substitute I tried a few months ago. If coffee is the culprit, I certainly don't want to drink it anymore no matter how wonderful it is. I HATE this fluttery feeling. It is scary.
I have an appointment to see the doctor today and will find out what her thoughts are. I will also ask about my long-awaited appointment to see a consultant about my hearing, as I have not yet received any communication from the hospital about it. Stupid NHS!
