Sep 2, 2018 · Fast Heartbeat Triggered by Food in Heart Rhythm Conditions

Greetings,
I just am seeing if i can get any help on this issue of a racing heart after eating and would really appreciate it. I am a 45 year old male that previously had WPW and AFIB and has had 4 ablations done over the last 20 years (2 withing the last 4 months). My wife has noticed that every time i eat about 20-40 minutes later my heart get triggered into a fast heartbeat around 135-145 for hours and the only thing that will make it come back down is taking a fast acting 30mg diltizam. The problem is that my doc prescribed me 240mg extended diltizam a day which is the max amount am supposed to take and by the end of the day it wears off and seeing if anyone else might have a solution to this? I also take 5mg of eliquis twice a day along with stomach 20mg omeprazole twice a day as well including one 400mg amiodarone a day. It has been approximately a week since my last ablation and don't look forward to eating anymore because it makes my heart race and sometimes the only food i can eat is bland oatmeal which tends to cause my heart not race so much after eating.
Thanks for your time and any feedback would help me out,
Rich
