SVT- Eating certain foods

I have SVT and mitro valve prolapse.  When I eat peanut butter or drink milk my heart beats so fast I cannot function. I have burning in my ears and have passed out many times.  Has anyone ever heard of this? I am 38. I took medication for over 15 years the last 6 years I have been able to control the episodes myself without medication. The peanut butter and milk thing puzzles me.

I have an 11 year old son with severe life threatening food allergies...including peanut & milk.  He also seems to react to food additives & caffeine.  Did a dr ever confirm that allergies caused your SVT?  They want my son to have ablation...at 11.  I think it's due to food allergies.  Any comments?
