Can chocolate have an effect on your heart/heart rate?

Doctor's Assistant: Do you know if your family has a history of heart disease? In general, how would you describe your health lately?

Yes, I was admitted to the hospital on November 20th with chest pains. CAT scan and stress test came out fine. Did you show my heart rate was elevated. Returned again with the same issues, was given muscle relaxer and Ibrupuben

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Mom died of in-stage CHF, 2 uncles had heart attacks with one receiving 4 bypasses. High Blood Pressures also runs in my family

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
