Heart Palpitations From Diet Soda

by Sherry

I am a 42 year old female and I used to be a Diet soda drinker for years. About 5 years ago I started having heart palpitations and a racing heart.

After having an EKG and a songram of my heart, the doctor started eliminating things from my diet.

We found diet soda to be the culprit and the doctor said I was very sensitive to the artificial sweetener in the soda.

After eliminating this from my diet the palapitations have stopped.

I also had rapid heart episodes with diet soda plus many muscle spasms in my back. I quit diet soda and all symptoms have stopped!

I've had the same problem

I noticed I was getting more frequent heart palpitations and thought it was from drinking caffeine. However, I haven't had them recently. After reading this, the one thing that's been eliminated from my diet is Propel, which has aspartame. I was drinking at least two bottles a day. Now that I'm not having it, the palpitations have stopped. I assume it must be the same thing!
