Heart Palpations
0

8 posts in this topic

For the past yr, I have had tachycardia and heart palpations, ringing of the ears and panic attacks when this occurs, I have had my thyriod checked, saw a heart specialist and they have ruled this all out, I have always had gastric issues good majority of my adult life, nausea, bloating,diarrhea, constipation and chronic gastritist.My primary Dr. tested me for celiac and had a endoscopy and came back positve for it. It does explain all the gastric issues but still concerned about my other issues, they just cant figure it out and im wondering is anyone else experincing this? I am slowly tring to change my diet but its not easy. I have found when I do eat gluten filled products, Im up all night, having palpataions and feel like I have poison and toxins in my body I also constanly have my arm, legs or all over my body jerking right before i try to fall asleep. This is driving me crazy and In fear of my life. Its so discouraging that they cant figure out whats wrong and I fear its something pretty serious, I did have a head cat scan and it also came back normal! Thank god! But if anyone can give me some info or are experincing the same feedback would be so appriciated. I feel like Im going nuts!!!!!1 Help

OK

If you are going gluten free... It's all or nothing. "gluten lite' is a complete waste of time. imo

I did have some symptoms like that after taking an allergy medication just before a serious gall bladder attack. i have had my gall bladder removed for about 3 years and haven't had problems since.

Go back to a doctor and have your blood pressure checked, thyroid, and gall bladder.

Your doctor should be checking your Vitamin B levels--especially B12 and folic acid. Heart palpitations are very common with low Vitamin B12, and you can take Methyl B12 sublingually. It's an over-the-counter supplement, very inexpensive, and immediately effective. BTW, all of your vitamin and mineral levels should be checked.

Araceli...

Stop eating gluten... You've been diagnosed so that's not even a question mark for you.

With that said...

I have heart palpitations as well. I've been gluten-free since July 11 and already I see a huge improvement. I take atenolol for the palpitations (twice a day)... However, I've not really felt I need the dose at night. I will be checking with my doc at next visit to see if I can transition to just 1 dose in the morning. With the way I've been feeling, I'm quite hopeful that the palpitations will go away completely.

I see other symptoms improving, too. Feels so good to have real hope for the first time in years!

So...best advice... Do what your body needs...stop the gluten...

You need to be all the way gluten free. Even though it is hard, you must get rid of the gluten, because even traces can cause your symptoms to continue. Cross contamination is enough to keep people from healing. Once you are gluten free you should be feeling better. My heart palpitations stopped completely as well as migraine headaches. I think you are feeling like you have poison and toxins in your body after you eat gluten because that is exactly what gluten is to a Celiac...poison. Read labels on everything and eliminate gluten so you can feel better.

I should have added that magnesium levels are tied closely to heart health, too, and the American diet is low in magnesium. Celiacs tend to have very low levels at times....so you should DEFINITELY consider getting a magnesium supplement. If you're worried about how it might affect your stomach, two brands are easy on the digestive system: Bluebonnett's liquid magnesium and Nature's Way Magnesium Complex.

I have had Pre Atrial Contractions or PAC, and Panic Attacks for years. Please insist that they check all the Vitamin B levels; B1,B6 and B12. My husband had to insist they did this. My B levels were so low I had to have IV's and daily injections for a while. If they are low you should start feeling a big difference with treatments. You must be very diligent in your gluten free diet as even traces or small amounts can damage your small intestines. The sooner you control it with no exceptions, the better you will feel. My analogy for celiac disease is to do the diet. Would you stick your finger into an electric socket knowing you would be shocked. My panic attacks have abated or are almost gone; my atrial fibrillation had improved markedly. Remember there is no cheating

I had chest pains, dizziness, vertigo, migraines in addition to the gastro symptoms and they ask went away when I stopped eating gluten. it is hard to be gluten free at times, but it is so much easier than the stress I went through constantly thinking I was dying.

    • I have posted on here before. DQ2, brother with celiac, DGP iGA was the only mildly elevated test. Was gluten-free so did 6 week challenge last winter. Negative biopsy. I am gluten-free now but do go out to eat. Prior to the challenge my health was good. Since then I have: Chest pain, pain between shoulder blades, periods of shortness of breath, heart palpitations, one instance of a heart arrythmia episode, neck is tender to touch on one side (they kept saying sinuses or TMJ which my dentist vetoed) ear ache, bowels never sink. Numbness and tingling. Blood pressure variations. Could be doing chores and feel dizzy and it might be 84/52.  not super low, but not typical for me if I'm running around the house.While other days I am mildly hypertensive. Recently lost 5 lbs in 8 days without trying. Recently electrolytes were low, alkaline phosphatese was low. Ferritin started dropping so started liquid iron 2-3 times per day 4 months ago. Primary watching that, I am not anemic but we are nowhere near iron overload either.  GI doc was a dick. Did not even know DGP replaced older tests and he was very condescending When I begged him for help recently and told me to get a second opinion which is exactly what I plan on doing.  I now have pain in my upper GI area. It is tender to touch. I had my gallbladder out in 97 along with a stone and infection in my bile duct. It hurts in this area. Pancreatic enzymes look fine, liver enzymes fine. Pancreatic ultrasound fine. I will now be doing a EUS Soon to look at bile duct, pancreas and liver.   so a typical day for me is that I might feel fine for a while and then suddenly feel like I'm going to pass out. really dizzy, numbness in odd places, like my body has been hijacked. I will typically eat a bunch of food something high protein and in about an hour or so I start to feel better. However, then my upper stomach starts to hurt in place of the passing out feeling. blood sugars are also normal. After getting the " it must be panic attacks" and condescending looks a million times my primary finally ordered an ultrasound of my sore neck and there is an abnormality in my thyroid which she says looks like possibly Hashti's. Except for one time, all my serum TSH tests were normal. We have more blood work on Monday. As I have not put on any weight and there are other symptoms that are closer to Graves.  Has anyone else had any thyroid issues that followed doing a gluten challenge?  where is your stomach pain? Do you have it above or below your belly button? Mine feels like it's in the pancreas area, like 2-3 inches above the belly button and when I push on it it's tender, but not all the time. sometimes i feel it in my back. 
    • Thanks for sharing with me.  I really appreciate it.  Honestly, after a glutening last summer (still do not know what glutened me), I did not eat out for a year!  The risk was too great as my healing time took 3 months (for symptoms to subside) and six months to regain lost weight.  Our recent vacation to Europe was worth the risk  as we traveled with our entire extended family, but we were extra cautious and ate only at celiac-approved places.  Otherwise, we "dined" at markets or ate the food we brought from home.  Thankfully, we did not get glutened (at least we don't think so!)  
    • I do not struggle with this and I was brought up the same way as you. I don't struggle because for many years off & on we didn't have a bathtub, only showers as well as this being therapy or medicinal for the skin - heck even for the muscles as I age. I figure I've earned my right to luxuriate or medicate with baths any time I've a mind to. My husband saw just how bad my dh got & NEVER begrudges me a nice long soak in the big soaking tub we now have.
    • Hi, No, I do not have celiac  disease. I have an ankylosing spondylitis which is an auto-immune disease provoking an inflammation of the joints. Under the advice and supervision of my doctor and the professor at the hospital I follow a gluten free & casein free diet, which is extremely successful in preventing inflammatory events. And I've been doing so, strictly, for more than 6 years. So I'm not Celiac, but I can tell you that I react strongly every time I take gluten even in small amounts. Even soya sauce, which according to this website has an almost zero dose of gluten, is a lot too much for me. Nevertheless I allow myself to eat food which has been processed in a factory which processes gluten. To conclude, I would say that when you are travelling, especially in a country where celiac disease is scarcely known, you should be twice as careful as when you're going out at home. In the end you can never guarantee that the cook has cleaned his pan after using soya sauce and so on... You can only bet
