Arrhythmia
0

6 posts in this topic

Hi, I didn't know whether to start a new thread or add to my last one on migraines.....I have also recently been suffering from arrhythmia and wondered whether this could be associated with celiac? I noticed some references to it in other threads but nothing concrete.

Also just a short note about myself......I am currently going through battery of tests (in the UK) for celiac (or coeliac) - but the first ones came back positive. I did start gluten free but was told to stop until all tests finished. Started down the celiac route after suffering with quite a range of gradually worsening problems over the years, mostly head/migraine, bowel, stomach, fatigue, and dizziness related. My son is already following a diet free of gluten/casein and lots if other foods due to ASD diagnosis (he has been on this diet now for about 12 years).

Many thanks all for all the info so far-

That can be connected to thyroid. I'm hypothyroid. If I take too low of a dose of meds, I have so many PVCs that I can't relax into sleep at night. My doctor (after an EKG) expressed some amazement at the number since I think she thought I was exaggerating. Less than a week on the higher dose, and everything stabilized (I also had a normal echo to confirm it was nothing else). It all started after a month on a lower dose (which I had asked for because of jumpiness from the other dose). Anyway, so I recommend you look into thyroid as being a cause. Palpitations, etc. can be a symptom of under-treated autoimmune thyroiditis.

 

Good luck!

Thankyou for the responses! I think it may be palpitations - heart seems to flutter as if extra few quick beats. Seem to be collecting new problems all the time!! It started about 3 weeks ago but now have a fair few each day and had many overnight. Anyway just wondered if it may be related to celiac - but I am back to doctors tomorrow.

Interesting about thyroid as that is one of the blood test results I am still waiting for......

Thanks again for the responses.

Yes, thyroid and adrenals. If you do have thyroid issues and the palps and don't resolve with treatment it could be adrenals, could be iron levels in conjunction with thyroid/adrenals.

    • Thank you cyclinglady! We'll just keep pushing forward and we'll get things figured out one way or another. You have been most helpful and informative and given me some great resources and things to consider. I really appreciate it! I definitely feel better as I've felt like a crazy mom lately thinking through the test results and everything. Even if it turns out to not be celiac or gluten related, at least I can say we did our due diligence and looked under every rock to find the source of his troubles. Thanks again!  Take care! 
    • Anxiety is quite a common symptom with undiagnosed celiacs. It should improve if not disappear when you go gluten free. Be sure to CONTINUE eating gluten until the endoscopy!   Welcome to the club!
    • Although serological tests are useful for identifying celiac disease, it is well known that a small minority of celiacs are seronegative, and show no blood markers for celiac disease. A team of researchers wanted to define the prevalence and features of seronegative compared to seropositive celiac disease, and to establish whether celiac disease is a common cause of seronegative villous atrophy.

    • This was absolutely me before diagnosis.  The worst of all of my Celiac symptoms occurred in the morning.  The anxiety was terrible in the mornings, I had horrible nausea, no appetite, felt light headed, dizzy and shaky, diarrhea, stomach cramps... the works.  Honestly, I don't know if it was the symptoms causing the anxiety, the anxiety making my symptoms worse, or a combination.  I almost dropped out of school because I felt so terrible every morning I didn't want to leave the house to go to class.  The first few doctors I saw insisted all of my symptoms were psychological and tried to give me anti-depressants/anti-anxiety meds, but I knew there was something else wrong with me.  I had always been a bit "high-strung," but for the year I was really sick before diagnosis, the anxiety got out of control. I was diagnosed with celiac disease 6 months ago and have been gluten free ever since.  It took time, but everything is gradually improving.  The morning anxiety is much improved and some mornings, is completely gone.  I realized a month or two ago that I no longer spend the first hour after waking up gagging and dry-heaving, something I had done for so many years that I just thought it was normal for me.  I can brush my teeth and my tongue without feeling like I'm going to puke.  I eat breakfast now, which I have never done, because I was always too anxious and nauseous in the mornings to be hungry.  I am not "all better."  I still have bad days and even bad weeks.  If I get glutened the anxiety comes back full force.  If I'm super-stressed out or letting my health slide (not eating well, not sleeping enough) the AM anxiety seems to return.  But, it has been slowly improving over the last 6 months and has become so much more manageable.   Your anxiety could be a separate disorder from the celiac disease, but for me, it seems it was absolutely related and continues to get better.  Don't get discouraged if you don't see an immediate improvement or experience relapses after improving.  Often, I feel like it's a two-step-forward, one-step-back kind of thing, but it is getting better.
    • I have suffered with GERD for 20 years and accidently found out it was a gluten intolerance. I had gone on Atkins years ago and noticed that I had no GERD symptoms while on the diet. I didn't make the connection at that time. Then I went on the Mayo Diet back in the winter and once again, the constant was having no bread primarily. I had also noticed that I would have major attacks anytime I ate Italian food. I blamed it on the onions, the tomatoes, herbs...but I could tolerate all those foods separately. Then, like a lightning bolt...it hit me...the culprit was the "innocent" pasta. BINGO!!  I went gluten-free in March 2016 and I have had no GERD now in 5 months. I feel as if it is a gift to me.
