We have the symptoms you write about. Neither one of us has any CAD- we've both had thallium stress tests- mine was chemically induced, or course.
Magnesium does help. As does L-acetyl carnitine and coenzyme Q-10. I have to take both the Q-10 and carnitine. If I miss one or the other the rapid and irregular heartbeat gets really annoying. My husband is most bothered by it when he lays down to sleep- not so much when he is jogging or doing something active. He also pees all night long- no prostate trouble, either. He takes magnesium- 600 mg., calcium 1200 mg and a multi with 15 mg. or zinc and the Q-10.
You should get to a cardiologist to help figure this out.
Mommasan, thank you! Very helpful.
