Permanent Heart Pounding
0

6 posts in this topic

Hi everyone,

I'm originally from the UK and currently living in Finland! - I've just found this forum today!

I suffer from a permanent heart pounding - strong enough that you can see my chest bump up and down, and the pulse in my neck is also strong enough to see visibly. It makes me feel dreadful for 99% of the time. I was wondering if anyone else has suffered from this symptom.

I haven't gone gluten free, despite having a private test done which showed intolerances to gluten, wheat, buckwheat, milk and eggs. I cut out milk and eggs with not much effect, and with all the doctors telling me I was just an anxious person, I kind of gave up hope of it being anything medical.

But I've been feeling increasingly worse over the last few months for no specific reason - I don't feel mentally worried about anything, just frustrated that I feel so dreadful.

I also have regular diarrhoea, heartbearn and indigestion and have disturbed/unrefreshing sleep. I often feel strange after eating, dry mouth/tongue, and tonight for example I had to rush to the loo minutes after drinking a cup-a-soup!

In my humble opinion all this could well point to my diet, so I think now I have to bite the bullet and go gluten-free.

Can anyone else relate to these symptoms?

Mark.

:o Hi there i really think you need to see a gastroiterologist ( dont think that is how you spell it but you know what i mean) tell him you symptoms and he will be able to help if you have a wheat problem then cut that out and see if it is just that but i really would get to your doctor as you need seeing let us know how you go

Hi Mark,

I have the heart pounding that will last for days, but it doesn't stay all the time. I haven't really figured out exactly what causes it, but am sure it is food related. I'm working on the gluten free diet right now so I'm in the process. I've found I'm extremely sensitive to caffeine through all this. Good luck,

Lily

If you've tested gluten intolerant, then I'd try the diet for a while. It's not really as hard as it sounds, after you get the hang of it. And it could make you feel a lot better!

I get what feels like my heart misses a beat then it speeds up and sounds like it is pounding outside my chest. I am not sure if this is the same thing but my doctor said the number 1 contributing factor to it is caffeine. He told me to cut it down to see if it made a difference. It worked for me. I drink one soda a day now and water the rest. I was getting it once a day before and now it is once every 6 months or so.

I don't have heart pounding, but I feel the pulse in my neck increase for no good reason that lasts a few minutes during this time I feel light headed and shaky! I don't wanna go to the doctor's for it, I'm only 22 and I feel like I'm falling apart!!

:(

    • Do you mean something like a protein powder you could mix up?  A lot of them in the US seem to be gluten free.  Maybe just go to your local store and read all the labels?
    • Yeah I ended up allergic to corn, olives, sesame, whey, and peanuts and intolerant to dairy, soy, yeast, enzyme issues with breaking down meats, and egg yolks, along with extreme bloat with any kind of carbs/sugars in moderate amounts. And very adverse reactions to certain artificial sweeteners. So your not alone in all the other issues cropping up, it happens as our bodies adjust.  I eat a bunch of stir frys with veggies, egg whites, plenty of  avocados, and toasted and raw forms of almonds, coconut, cashews, walnuts, hemp seeds, pumpkin seeds, flax seeds, sancha inchi seeds, chia seeds, and sunflower seeds in all forms including making them into butters, spreads, and incorporating them into sauces.   Most meals are forms of soups, omelettes, and stir frys. I do the seeds and nuts on rotation same with my veggies and snack on fruits in small amounts along with some homemade baked goods I make for markets. I do suggest a rotation of foods, my dietician said I need to rotate my foods to prevent more issues, making sure I am off one one for at least 7-14 days at a time completely. I find changing up the spices and rotating my cuisine base works well. I also make puddings, and protein shakes along with nut/seed milks, and different bases and extract flavorings to get my random cravings Taken care of. Guess take what you can from this and and see how it can help you,    As to the tinging, I ended up with both B vitamin and magnesium deficiency issues, the magnesium one caused a fire like tingling in my arms, legs and back, along with muscle pain. Ended up on a doctors best powder form of it so I can dose it out right, and found epsom salt bathes helped.  
    • Hi, I've gained so much knowledge on this forum over the past few months, which I am so thankful for. I can see how much hell people are going through with this disease and it's so lovely to see how much support and advice people give to others on here. I'd like a little bit of reassurance and advice myself from anyone that can help. I've been gluten free for six months. Two weeks after going gluten free I realised I also had a problem with corn so cut out processed food. Over the following weeks and months I continually had problems with food; fruit, dairy, a lot of vegetables, nuts, soya....it's basically dwindled down to just eating potatoes (not white potatoes), cucumber, lettuce, small amounts of red onion, spring onion, sprouts and beetroot. There may be more things I could be okay with but to be honest I'm too scared to try.  Is this all normal? Am I an extreme case? I've been taking some digestive enzymes and probiotics for about six weeks, my acid reflux has dramatically decreased but I always have a lot of loud noises going on in my guts, I'm guessing this is the probiotics working.  I've lost nearly 3st in weight since this started - which I'm not complaining about as I was overweight due to thyroid problems. I've had loads of blood tests done recently, all organs are working 'great' according to my doctor, the only thing they've picked up on is ketones, I seem to be having a glucose problem, which might explain my exhaustion and weight loss. I also have permanent numbness and sometimes tingling in one of my legs and sometimes hands and one shoulder, I thought it could have vitamin B12 deficiency but that's okay according to blood tests. I would be greatful for any replies. Thanks for reading.
    • Hi everyone, I am doing job in restaurant at evening 5 to 12 during working hours no time to do a dinner. I'm thinking to make a shake but don't know the gluten free vitamin or supplement brand which one is good for me and easily available in Berlin Germany to make me fit cause last one week i feel weak. I'm 28 year old. Sincerely
    • Hey there just wanted to warn anyone that has other allergies- these crackers may not be a good choice! I'm mildly sensitive to MSG- I only react if there's a giant amount like in Chinese food or Ramen noodles, etc.  I literally have a to eat TONS of a the offending food before reacting.  Anyway, I was excited to try these Trader Joes pumpkin crackers, kept hearing about them on the radio .... and they're gluten free!  (I have Hashi's).  I ate about 3/4 of the box last night. Woke up this morning with a red itchy face and nasal congestion, headache, anxiety. Hallmark symptoms for me of high MSG intake. (It does say yeast extract on the side but it's pretty far down the list). So if you're sensitive.... stay away! Apparently these particular crackers are loaded with it.
