Hi,

I am working the night shift and it's horrible after having worked office hours for more than 20 years. To avoid sleeping I have been drinking more than 4 cups of coffee during my working hours..

Last night after a cup of coffee I felt like as if my heart beat was increasing I thought that I was having a heart attack..

What can be the cause ?

Thank you
Hello, you should consider seeing a doctor, these symptoms are not normal. Maybe you should try to sleep more when you can, If you need coffee, it's probably because you are exhausted.

Take care.

Thank you
First of all coffee helps to boost alertness, perk up performance, and possibly even improve concentration.

About the heart beats increasing, it may depend on what type of coffee you are having and also how many hours you are sleeping after work.

There are numerous sites where you can get the information about the benefits of coffee and what types of coffee may injure health. And at least 6 to 7 hours of sleep in mandatory during the day to be fit for night shift work.

This may help you...

Take care..
