My daughter, who is 19, has inappropriate sinus tachycardia, which means her heart will start racing for no reason. Caffeine only exacerbates the condition. Cardiologist said most of the time this will pass once girls get into their early 20s and their hormones settle down a bit.
So last night we were talking and she was saying something about work, adding, “Well, I might just have to drink some coke that day.” I asked if she can now drink caffeine w/o it affecting her heart rate. She responded, “Mom, I’ve learned to drink responsibly.”
