Too much adrenaline! watch

    • Thread Starter

    Why is it that some people can drink one cup of coffee, and they're fine, whilst other people drink the exact same one cup of coffee and they get heart palpitations/ arrhythmia?

    Similar thing with alcohol, smoking, or exercise causing arrhythmia in some but not in others..

    I'm pretty sure the palpitations are a reaction to the adrenaline produced from all these activities - but why does one person get these side effects and another doesnt when exposed to the same thing?? :confused:

    Also, I noticed that people who tend to get palpitations from such things are more prone to stage-fright and similar adrenaline-related problems. hmm.. It's like they just make way too much adrenaline in general in response to everything! Why is this? Is it genetic? Is it psychological? Is it something we can do something about? I'm wondering if there's something I can do to lower adrenaline production, or lower a person's sensitivity to it.

    Would really appreciate your guys take on it.

    Thanks guys!
