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.

    • How effective is HD skin biopsy after being gluten free for a year
      DH is celiac disease that appears on the skin (gluten triggered).  It does not appear when you are consuming dairy, which sounds like a separate issue for you.   A DH biopsy requires active lesions (new/fresh) from consuming gluten.  So, if you want to be tested via a skin biopsy you must go back on gluten.  Finding a dermatologist who knows exactly how to biopsy for DH is often difficult.  Be sure your Derm is knowledable and has biopsied for DH before. Why no endoscopy for now?  I bet your GI  knows that your insurance will deny the endoscopy.  After all, you tested negative to the blood panel.  Your GI should not even ordered the blood panel knowing that you had been gluten free for months.  You have to be consuming gluten daily for 8 to 12 weeks for the blood test to be accurate.   Did you ever test positive?  Why did your primary diagnose you?  Having the gene just means you can develop celiac disease.  Some 30% of the population carries the genes.  The gene test should only be used to help rule out celiac disease.  
    • How effective is HD skin biopsy after being gluten free for a year
      No one can say exactly how long you might be able to get a positive dh biopsy after having been gluten free as long as you have been. The Chicago Celiac Disease Center says this: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/im-scheduled-to-have-a-skin-biopsy-to-screen-for-celiac-disease-should-i-maintain-a-gluten-containing-diet-similar-to-those-who-are-being-screened-via-blood-or-intestinal-biopsy/ http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/what-is-a-gluten-challenge/ You said you had a flare of the plaque psoriasis -- that is NOT dh so why do you think the dh biopsy will show positive? Testing positive for the celiac genes does not mean you have celiac disease. 30+% of the population have the celiac genes but only very, very small fraction of those people do or will present with celiac disease. The gene tests are only used to rule OUT celiac NOT to diagnose it. Frankly, I can understand why your GI does not put any stock in your Primary doc's thinking you have celiac disease. A positive celiac gene and the boils in your armpits which the GI never saw and were never biopsied for dh but they resolved on a gluten free diet and so did your plaque psoriasis. That's all the GI has to go on. I don't know why you are pushing an endoscopy. If you've been eating strictly gluten free then an endoscopic biopsy for celiac will be negative.  Your PCP should have done a celiac blood panel on you back when you were still eating gluten rather than dx you based on the celiac gene you tested positive for.
    • How effective is HD skin biopsy after being gluten free for a year
      I've been gluten free for a year now and my gastro wants to wait for the endocopy until I'm eligible for the colonoscopy when I turn 50 later this year. I don't think she believes I have celiac, even though I tested positive for one of the genes associated with celiac and my primary has diagnosed me as having celiac. The gluten sensitivity blood tests came back negative, of course, since I was gluten free for 9 months at that time. Why is she waiting? At any rate, My digestive system has improved greatly, but when I reintroduced non fat Greek yogurt in my diet, the plaques psoriasis returned on my elbows. My primary believes it is dermatitis herpetiformis (as well as I, since before going gluten free, I used to get boils in my armpits) and I'm scheduled for a skin biopsy in 3 weeks. However, I eliminated dairy from my diet 4 weeks ago and the plaques psoriasis is healing like it did when I eliminated gluten from my diet a year ago. If the scar is reduced to eczema, does that mean there still are IGA deposits in my skin? I don't want to resume dairy since I experienced a cross reaction to the casein in cheese and found lactose was on that same list. So my question is, how long do the granular IGA deposits remain in the skin in order to have a valid skin biopsy test performed for dermatitis herpetiformis? Since it takes 1-2 years for dermatitis herpetiformis to heal on a gluten free diet and I just had a recent flare up, can I continue on my dairy free diet or should I resume eating non fat Greek yogurt for the next 3 weeks just for this skin biopsy?
    • Celiac Night Vision
      Thanks Cristiana. It was Mistyx7 and night driving. Migraine type is very personal but does not appear to be closely connected to celiac or my peculiar scotomas. If you think going gluten-free has improved it that deserves a separate topic!

      The last post was from 2011.   if you can eat a regular pizza crust with no issue, then gluten isn't your problem.  You might want to look for something else.  The amount of gluten in a beer or fryer cc is very very small compared to eating a pizza crust.   I am assuming you do not have Celiac disease.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
