Good to

Good to know, thanks Dave!

Being a cheapskate, I generally go for the canned mackeral myself. But once in a while I try some tuna. I just have to fight the cat off to eat it tho. :)

LOL! Starkist gold can is soy free. Costco Kirkland tuna is soy free and cheaper.

I had no idea I was eating so many things with soy in them. It's shocking to me.

Yep, they put soy, dairy, and gluten in a whole lot of processed foods. It is very common to find one of those 3 or all of them in processed food-like products. Along of course with food preservatives, (anti-bacterials) food colorings, emulsifiers, stabilizers, fillers, and spitballs. Ok, kidding on the last one. :)

Well, thanks to this thread and after feeling pretty darn lousy following my tofu dinner the other night, I've decided to try a week soy-free. Since my gut reactions are immediate and quite, um, obvious, I figure I should know right away if that is an issue. I have lactose intolerance and have tested corn, eggs and grains in general but never thought about soy being a problem.

Has anyone with soy intolerance experienced heart palpitations, and mood changes? I have been off soy for about three months, and after eating some chocolates my students gave me, thinking that a bit of soy lechitin would be a problem, I had racing heartbeat, tremors, and a kind of panic attack (my mother, who was talking to me, said that I sounded and seemed on drugs), followed by the onset of a headache that lasted for about half a day. I tried the experiment again a couple of times, with a smaller quantity, and the same happened heart palpitations, tremors, confusion, and then severe headache and sluggishness. But I never think of tachycardia as a symptom of intolerance, or am I wrong?

I get severe mood changes with all legumes - peanuts are the worst as far as anger, anxiety, sadness. Peas and beans are like sleeping pills and soy is major abdominal bloating along with melancholy.

Haven't noted tachycardia per se, put I do know that certain foods do cause palpitations and anxiety.

For me ,,ingesting soy causes palpitations and anxiety amoung other symptoms ( such as confusion, headache,dizziness ,brain fog,ringing in my ears,constipation, ect......)I feel like my heart is racing ( and my normal heart rate is low )

Many of my food intolerances have an effect on my heart. Racing heart, arrhythmia, dizzziness, fainting... eventually led to atrial fibrillation because I didn't know what was causing it and it occurred so frequently. Interestingly enough, I can now manage a little soy lecithin as in chocolate :D:D

Wow, thanks... I am afraid I will have to stay away from even that for a while, because my heart beats too weird. My grandmother also died of the complications of an atrial fibrillation (rhyme not intended!) which occurred when she was in her 80s, I think. I am not sure I want to try the experience, even if I am not that old! :P

I was "shipped" straight to a cardiologist with a heart scare and tremors this summer, which happened over a period in which I was living off tofu and soy-based bars (I know, 50 shades of wrong, never gonna do as badly as that ever again), so I wonder if that was a cause. My heartrate now seems back in place, provided that I steer clear of the above, and sugar.

Scary! I'll be curious to know how you feel off of soy.

My heart rate dropped dramatically. Was it the absence of soy? Was it the resumed cardio? I could barely walk at 4 mph without feeling pain when I was eating that much soy. I am also less "crazy" in general. Was it the absence of soy? Was it the breathing exercises? I am not sure. But when I feel that awful, to be honest, I'm not really that curious. I sort of just want to find the combination of diet/therapy/lifestyle that will make me feel able to live life again. As of now, all my tests came back negative (no endoscopy performed), so I don't have celiac disease. But there is no doubt that my gut is messed up, and since starting the gluten-free diet, I am able to leave the house without having to choose between either fasting or needing a ladies' room at hand. Sorry, TMI!

Eating two truffles made with soy lechitin means pounding palpitations (I can feel them in my stomach) and chest pain; then, if I have consumed more than that, comes GI distress: bloating, and running for the bathroom. Not even coffee does that to me.

Sorry to bump this up, but I am kind of worried at this point. I have accidentally soyed myself (WHO on earth thinks it's a great idea to put soy in herbal tea???) this morning. I have had palpitations all day, and people talking to me said I was irritable and confused, and at a certain point I felt that my heart was going very fast and then kind of "stopped" (I don't know how to describe it) with two very string thuds. It happened three or four times in the afternoon. And it was almost painful. And I was lying on a sofa, not going around. I could not do much more beside, because the whole room was spinning around me for an hour or so.

Do I need to call my doctor about the heart thing?

YES! When in doubt == Emergency Room - better to error on the side of caution.

We are not doctors on this board...simply other folks with Celiac Disease, NCGI or other food intolerances -- if you are experiencing new serious symptoms, please consult a physician.

Thank you for helping me in my freak out.

I called my doc - apparently it was a case of extrasystole somehow related to the exposure to foods/substances I am reacting to. I have been keeping a diary, and it looks like each accidental exposure makes me react worse and worse.

I am feeling slowly better.

Good to hear your heart has settled - scary stuff.

Tummy may have ups and downs for a while.

Hang in there :)

    • Will my doctor test me? So many symptoms...
      Welcome, @iwillmoveamountain! Of course you are not wrong to pursue getting testing for celiac. My advice is to drop that doctor and find a new one, preferably one who is celiac savvy, and who will listen to you and test you for the disease.  
    • Will my doctor test me? So many symptoms...
      Hi! I was hoping some of you might be able to tell me if my symptoms seem like good reason to be tested for celiac disease... I actually asked my doctor to test me (years ago) and she told me she would not test me because the test is expensive... However, I am now desperate to figure out how to manage my health issues and am willing to find a doctor that WILL test me if my symptoms seem to point to celiac...Here they are:
      I have been diagnosed with all of the following over the last 12 years (I am 22 years old, and have always been a healthy weight/slightly underweight, and quite active):
      Irritable Bowel Syndrome Fibromyalgia Anorexia (started when I was 10, I have been mostly recovered since I was 14) Depression Anxiety Panic Attacks Horrible mood swings (from suicidal to totally fine in a matter of minutes)
        Chronic constipation and bloating Acne   HOWEVER, no one in my family has been diagnosed with celiac....am I wrong to think I have it??
    • Weird Reaction
      Yes, I was surprised about the MSG in broccoli as well. I just had a quick look now as I couldn't remember where I had read it but some mushrooms have it to. A Google search will bring up a few things. I always just thought MSG was an artificial food enhancer!! Insecticides are still a big possibility though. Why do you not want to try organic? We buy organic when we can and fruits and veges that are in season are usually the best and cheapest.  Thank you for the link, Cristiana. Very helpful. I have an appointment with my Naturopath in a couple of weeks and going to have a blood test done before that. She is excellent. Very knowledgeable and loves her work. Until then I'm not taking any supplements. I generally eat pretty well anyway so we'll see what she says. In the past I have used B12 injections (aka Neo Cytamen) which I found much better and safer than taken orally and very cheap. The energy boost was very noticeable. I didn't know it helped with anxiety though. She has also had me on Magnesium, Probiotics and Vitamin D3 and I also make my own Liver Tonic (Milk Thistle, Dandelion Root Powder, L-Glutamine, Taurine and Choline Bitartrate) which I use from time to time for a quick detox. Too much of anything can be bad but I think iron can be not real good in large amounts. Deficiencies can be related to gut health and/or competing for absorbtion with something else you may be taking I found. I'm no expert though but just a few things I've picked up during research. My normal GP told me to just eat some more red meat but I want to speak to my Naturopath first before supplementing. Her knowledge on nutrition is a bit more up-to-date.  I was just sitting there at lunch today after feeling great all morning and had a "weird feeling" come over me. Just a not quite right feeling. Very hard to describe and nausea seems to have returned to. It's funny that as I get older any little thing I get I seem to think it's life threatening even though all the tests I get back say I'm in good health. I guess that's part of that dread and doom and gloom feeling I mentioned earlier. Wish that would go away.  
    • Gluten and panic attacks
      There are great gluten-free pizza crusts out there, as well as good dairy free cheese. I find the key is to add good toppings, e.g. meats, carmelized onions, other veggies, white anchovies. Life goes on. Congrats. Hope the good feelings keep up. 
    • Gluten and panic attacks
      Just want to update incase anyone can find this helpful. I have stopped eating grains and dairy and everyday I'm feeling more and more like myself. It's amazing and I don't really care that I won't eat a regular pizza again. I mean 4 months ago I would have said I would die without gluteny soft pizza, now I am happy to never eat it again if it means I will never have to suffer a panic attack.

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!

      Week 4 of the gluten challenge- wheat cereal every morning, regular bread every day, and wheat tortillas for my lunch wraps. Right now, body aches that seem exercise related (weight lifting and running), even though I am doing the same intensity of weight lifting and running I've always done.  Just a few more weeks until my blood test. Counting down the days.
