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.
