There may be many causes for an irregular heartbeat, (sometimes called palpitations) and since any condition affecting the heart can be serious, it is wise to seek medical advice without delay. If there is no serious underlying problem, then over-consumption of caffeine or hyperventilation should be considered. Some doctors have reported that sensitivity to foods or to chemicals (see Chapter Nine) may cause irregularities in the heartbeat, and these factors may be worth investigating if other possible causes have been ruled out.
Chest pain is reported as a symptom of food intolerance by some doctors, but this is certainly not common. There are a great many other possible causes, some of which may be serious and require immediate attention. If the doctor can find no underlying cause for the chest pain, then the possibility of hyperventilation is worth considering.
