Who knew such a tiny valve could cause such commotion? I’ve been experiencing frequent palpitations lately along with some dizziness and headaches. I found a list of things that can worsen the symptoms, and the following from that list apply:
*Being anxious or nervous
*Lack of sleep
I can lay off most caffeine if I get more sleep. But if I get more sleep, I won’t get everything done. If I don’t get everything done, I stress more. If I stress more, I’ll turn to sweets and end up rushing around more in an attempt to get things done.
So here’s the plan…
1. I will let my doctor know this is acting up again.
2. I will drink more water.
3. I will cut back to one cup of coffee in the morning (might be a tall one).
4. I will go to bed one hour earlier Sunday thru Thursday nights.
