Went to the docs the other day as I’d been having, what I describe as heart palpitations for about a week
Different times of the day but mostly early evening

The doc checks me out with the usual and books me in for blood tests and ECG as I’m due a health check as I’m now just over 50 but quizzes me in detail on my hot beverage consumption

I have a large espresso coffee first thing in the morning then never not have a cup of tea on my desk all day and sometimes have a tea in the evening as well. Probably it amounts to about 6-8 cups of tea a day

On occasion I have a coffee after lunch but I’ve learned to never have a coffee after around 3pm as no matter how late I go to bed it does disturb my sleep which I’ve found tea to never do

The doc tells me he is 99 percent sure it’s caffeine causing my heart palpitations. He says he finds this quite a lot in particularly men in their 50’s who drink a lot of tea and coffee all of a sudden develop this issue with caffeine

So he said I could have a small coffee in the morning then ONLY decaf Thereafter

I’m now on my third day of this regime and I’ve had a headache solidly for three days but rather pleased to have little signs of the palpitations

Has anyone else had this?

I haven't - but I certainly agree that coffee after 3pm means I won't sleep. That's a fairly recent thing.

I treated myself to a Jura coffee machine not long ago and have one large espresso every morning - that's about it for my daily coffee consumption... and I remain on the hunt for the perfect coffee bean! smile

Blimely Stewart - I am 58 and worked from home yesterday and probably had 7 cups of coffee (got one on the go as i type this now!).

I have experienced the symptoms you described and just did not think that tea/coffee could do this.....

I need another hot beverage alternative...

Find a local roaster and get them freshly roasted

There is one near us at Cedar Farm and I just ask him for whatever he’s just roasted

It makes a massive difference

I reluctantly bought a few packets of Tetley’s decaf tea bags ad they were on offer at ASDA near work

Cost £1.50 for 80 bags which I thought was quite a bargain but thinking they would be horrible

Pleasantly surprised they taste exactly like my usual Taylor’s black tea bags with caffeine so I’m not missing the taste of a good cuppa

On my one and only trip to the USA - a training course in Boston - everyone seemed to be drinking coffee so I did too, three of four large cups a day. On the afternoon of the third day I had such severe palpitations that I genuinely believed I was having a heart attack. It was a huge relief when I realised that the caffeine had caused it. Ever since then I've restricted my coffee intake to one cup in the morning.

(When I did eventually have a genuine heart attack some years later, I discovered that it is actually nothing like the palpitations you get from excess coffee so I needn't have worried at all!)

I'd probably get withdrawal symptoms! From hot coffee to cold turkey.

Although Neil just on a side note, when you grind freshly roasted beans you do get slightly more build up of oils in whatever you use to grind them so I just clean by grinding through some dry risotto rice from time to time

I have not had palpitations but I have felt slightly high on some occasions from strong coffees, I never had these when younger. I was given a bit of a telling off at the Doc's some time back and for 6 months cut coffee out.

I am now down to a good but not strong coffee in the morning then cutting out the coffee in the afternoon and evening. I missed it for quite a long time. Alternatives are a real issue. Rooyybbooooosssssss or however you pronounce it was nice for afternoon with just a touch of milk. Some decaf coffees are okay, at the moment it is the M&S decaf or Percol blue but I have not tried many.


Just time to burn a little more petrol before dinner.
