I was recently admitted to the hopsital for test on my heart because it was beating VERY hard and I was out of breath in very little exertion (and I'm a triathlete). They couldn't find anything wrong. But last night I was mixing up some cookies (with wheat flour) and my heart started doing it again and I was breathless just trying to mix the dough and eat a corn chip. Has anyone had this happen to them. I've been gluten free for 6 months now and I have to admit I haven't been extremely carefull to find "hidden" gluten in items. Am I becoming more intolerant to it now that I'm not eating it? Or at least not eating very much of it.

Also, has anyone else had a rash that goes away with Acutane but keeps comming back when you stop taking Acutane? It was biopsied and they say it's Grover's disease. It didn't use to ich but is starting to.

Any help would be appreciated.

I used to carb cycle and on my high carb days I'd get a strong, fast heartbeat. Looking back I think it might have been a reaction to all the gluten I was eating.

When I get glutened my heart races and I feel very shaky. I have also read that this is a symptom of being allergic/intolerant to a food.

I wouldn't recommend baking with wheat flour. That just sounds scary to me. My mom can't even be in a house where something with gluten is baking or her throat feels like it is closing up.

I have definitely gotten more sensitive since going gluten-free, even a crumb will have me sick for days.

That sounds like you have an allergy to wheat on top of being gluten intolerant. You will need to stop using regular flour in your house. In fact, don't allow wheat flour in your house at all, give it away. It is not safe for you to have it around.
