Hello,I am Dr. Aren and I will help with your query.If you have been having the racing feeling/palpitations of the heart rarely,there is nothing to worry about.Use of antacid drugs like Tums or Mylanta would help with the upset stomach.If acidity is a regular problem,use of Prilosec for about 3 weeks would help.Increase in vegetable fibre ,regular exercise and adequate hydration would resolve the constipation.If the racing heart occurs frequently,it would be prudent to consult your PCP.

yes,the symptoms resemble a panic attack.Plenty of greens,fruits with fibre like apple,pineapple,oranges,plenty of salads will also help.
