I am 55, female. I have had the following for 4 years now thought heart attack. I've had x rays, ecg, blood tests, all normal, except that my blood potassium was higher than it should be. The collapses are related to food, but I think that's secondary. Also have hyper cold legs during attacks, and although normally no problem in that department, if I drink water it goes straight through me - only when I'm in this state.
I drink licorice tea and it stops my heart pounding at least. I don't have any other medicine/ treatment, but I sure need some !
Most grateful for any thoughts.
Good luck to you all, hang in there.
