Why does my heart race when I drink coke

(the pop) lol anyway I use to drink it all the time I was addicted to it. Beofre having my 3 year old I was addicted to coca-cola and that was all I drank nothing else during the day (I know that is bad) I drank it even through my pregnancy. Anyway. I am trying not to drink it this time around I am 22 weeks and 1 day pregnant. But once in a while I will drink it, but ever since I stopped drinking it so much I noticed my heart races/ At first it was doing this and I couldn't figure out what it was first my heart feels like it skips a beat then it heats one time really hard then it just starts beating fast, but I am noticing that it is everytime I drink pop (only coke though) and when I don't drink it or I drink another pop this doesn't happen. Can anyone tell me why this might be?

  • Caffeine..too much intake at one time. It happens to me if I drink coffee or any caffeinated drink too fast.

  • Yes you can be sensitive to caffiene. That happened to me when I was pregnant and I had to stop drinking it. Especially since your heart beats faster during pregnancy anyway, caffiene can make it worse.
