Topic: Heart palpitations? racing/pounding heart? dizziness?
For some time now, I have been using Splenda in my morning coffee. A while ago, I noticed that my heart would pound from time to time. I would especially notice when trying to get to sleep. Also, in the morning while driving to work, and after my morning 16oz cup of coffee, I would often feel dizzy and disoriented. Two nights ago, Friday, I decided to make myself a tall cup of lemonade. I used 6 packets of Splenda to sweeten it. Saturday morning I woke up and had my coffee. I was cleaning the garage, moving some bags of cement when my heart started pounding much harder than usual. I also noticed that my heart was skipping beats and changing tempo. I then decided to look up Splenda side effects. I have since discontinued Splenda and Aspertame (diet sodas, maybe 1-2/day). Two days later and my heart is still skipping beats from time to time.
I'm afraid of going to a doctor that doesn't know about Splenda. I had Candidiasis a few years back and my doc was no help at all. He thought I was crazy. How long does this stuff take to detox?
Some things you should know:
I'm a 1 pack-a-day smoker (I know.... bad)
I'm type II diabetic (though mild and controlled with diet)
