Scared myself silly today (Rapid heart Beat)
Monday, May 17, 2010
Ok I have come back with a vengeance, well, that may have been too much.
I started my eating clean, and exercise on May 11th. I had been sedentary for over a year, since I lost my job. I used to walk miles every day as a retail manager. Then it stopped.
Today I experienced a rapid heart beat, that lasted for over 5 to 10 minutes. I was so terrified
as to whether, I needed to go to the ER. It subsided, but left me traumatized. I tried to figure
out why. A friend said, with the changes I have made, including becoming a vegetarian, my system is working out all the impurities, and adjusting. That makes sense, but this scared me bad. And I actually woke up from a nap with this, odd enough.
I already have High Blood Pressure, and I am on medications for that. I am working on losing weight, I am changing my* lifestyle. I do not drink, or smoke (never did smoke) I drank when I was younger, but not all that often or that much, never did care for the taste of alcohol. So this makes absolutely no sense to me. And my weight isn't all that bad, I need to lose 30 or so more lbs.
Is my system actually adjusting? Let me know if any of you have had stuff like this happen to you as your trying to become healthy. And did it eventually adjust itself?
* By changing my lifestyle, mainly cutting out sugars, most fats, refined processed foods, no meat.
