Alcohol and rapid heart rate

Since going paleo, alcohol gives me an elevated heart rate which can last for up to 12 hours after drinking. This disrupts my sleep significantly so I cut back a lot, couple glasses of red wine once a week. I have tried different supplements, less carbs, more carbs, limes, no limes, I can't figure out why it happens or how to stop it.

Have a family member with this issue... for her, red wine appears to be the culprit. If you choose to drink; limit to max 1 drink per day average for women & max 2 drinks per day average for men.

Simple drinks clear sprits, non-sugar / non-diet mixe (yeah... vodka soda's about it), red wine (might be the problem), white. No exoctic, fruity, sugary.... from a paleo POV.

Unfortunately @samc probably has the best solution.

Simple solution is the one I adopted. Don't drink it. Many benefits for me, less weight, better sleep, etc. For me it was a slow poision.

Google "Holiday Heart Syndrome" and see if that resonates. It happens to me and unfortunatly it doesn't go away.
