For anyone who wants to add the Cal Mag citrate to their daily routine….This is the Cal Mag citrate that I use and love. The company is Thorne. I use one scoop in one glass of water per day. It dissolves nicely, doesn’t really have a taste…Its soothing and more absorbable than pill form.
Cal Mag Citrate

Hi, I’m 18 years old, female and at university. Over the past 4 months I’ve been having episodes where it feels like my heart is beating very fast (although less than 130 I think, maybe when I haven’t been measuring my pulse it’s been more) and I feel a fluttering feeling and, although it’s not a very good description, a sort of ‘ill’ feeling in my chest. Like small aches and catches of breath like I can’t get enough air. I’ve had trouble sleeping a lot, being jerked awake feeling like my heart has just missed a beat and I’ve stopped breathng for a second. As well as a bit of nausea, fullness in my chest and almost like there’s air bubbles in there . I’ve had an ECG but my heartbeat was just a bit fast.. I was wondering if these might be symptoms of SVT? One doctor did reccomend beta blockers. I don’t drink alcohol, coffee or much sugar (although I have eaten and drunk a lot of these in the past and although have sometimes felt ill, not in the same way) (but generally my mum was always careful with my diet as a child and I’ve been vegetarian my whole life). I don’t eat an awful lot of dairy (we mainly drink soya milk), although yogurt more than anything. And I eat dark chocolate sometimes and lots of fruits/vegetables etc. Bread and pasta etc a fair amount, but I’ve gone through periods not eating bread and havne’t felt that great and lost a bit too much weight due to lack of enough calories in a day. I’ve considered anxiety but I’ve suddenly started feeling off when I’m perfectly happy, and it’s a fight to try and ignore the symptoms and carry on with what I’m doing. I’m a bit of a loss at what to do.Thank you.
