Heart Beating Very Hard After Eating Or Inhaling Gluten

4 posts in this topic

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.

    • Ok, that was my understanding of it too after some reading, but the fact that the result was under "celiac reflex panel" is what confused me.    I do have some unspecified autoimmune activity going on in my body. My inflammation levels are very high, my complement testing has come back off, and nobody really knows why. A total high Iga isn't a surprise in this case if it doesn't actually hab anything to do with gluten. Going gluten free made my inflammation markers rise rather than go down, so I'm inclined to believe I'm mostly okay with gluten, aside from some digestive issues that I believe are simply from the wheat not being fermented. Sourdough causes me no issue,  but soft white bread destroys me for example. Anyways, It's all very confusing and I wish I knew what the heck was going on with my body. 
    • maybe check exactly which blood tests you had done as well if the dermatologist doesn't know much about celiac its possible they didn't run enough
    • i think chips would vary from place to place depending on the ingredients where you go
    • Hey Everyone! Been celiac for 6 years, and it's my first time on a forum.  I assume my story is the same as most of yours: I was really sick and skinny and bloated, got diagnosed with celiac, went gluten-free and felt amazing, then slowly, but surely, the symptoms and elevated antibodies returned, no matter how OCD I am about avoiding cc. Basically I have what they call Non-Responsive Celiac disease.  I'm wondering, is there something ELSE that I can do? Clearly the gluten-free diet isn't enough anymore. I know I'm not alone in this experience. And I know doctors don't have any advice besides the gluten-free diet (and the new celiac drug that is apparently in phase III)). But do you guys know of any other tricks?  I went on anti-anxiety SSRIs for a bit to help with my anxiety problems, and that really helped my celiac. But now that I've sort of developed a tolerance to my low dose, the symptoms have returned. Anyone else try this? Or low doses or steroids/anti-inflammatory drugs?  I'm really sick of feeling sick. I even tried the Fasano (Gluten Contamination Elimination Diet) for 3 months, but it didn't really work. Any suggestions or tips would be much appreciated! Or even the names of doctors who have helped you!  
    • 60% of celiacs with dh test negative on the celiac blood work. Fact. Many people with DH have no digestive symptoms and only about 40% of them have the positive blood tests (serology) for celiac disease.
