    I started an EC stack to compliment my cutting diet yesterday, and at about 5pm before my workout i took 200mg C/25mg E. I got absolutely no sleep, and my heart is still pounding now almost a day later. Anyone experience anything like this

    It's not the EC making your heart pound that much later.
    I do have to say though that whenever I start taking ephedrine again after a layoff, it affects my sleep and I do notice a slightly higher heart rate the rest of the day. You're stressing your body out a little bit. Back off the dose for now, go down to 12.5 mg and then see how you feel.

    Thanks for the advice, this feeling fucking sucks though. Should I be worried or will I feel normal in a few hours most likely?

    My money is it's just the lack of sleep and you're probably paying more attention to your heart rate than normal because you're aware of having taken something that messes with it. Drink plenty of fluids, get some sleep, and lower the dose next time; if you start feeling dizzy or worse in any way, don't take it again and call the doctor.

    you're probably worrying which in turn is creating anxiety

    If you don't like the effects of EC, stop taking it. Simple as that.
