In Topic: What Could It Be?

07 January 2012 - 09:28 AM

i wonder if it was the potato the balsamic v dairy or what spices was in the stuffing i wonder if it was some spice

i know when i have a reaction like that its usually a spice i have used dill does it for me and poultry seasoning does it and a few others

hope you are feeling better soon

The Butterball turkey may be the culprit. I looked on their website and the turkey has 'modified food starch' injected as well as other ingredients. Modified food starch may contain gluten.

In Topic: What Are Typical Soy 'intolerance' Symptoms?

07 January 2012 - 09:20 AM

My #1 main / usually only symptom is gas. A lot. It's been partially under control since going gluten free. I am still having issues though and I realized that more than half the new gluten free foods I am eating have soy in them.

For those of you that have cut the soy, would this be a likely cause of gas or is it usually only IgE allergy causing?

I am allergic to soy (skin-prick test at allergists). My first symptom was a burning and stinging sensation and slightly swollen lips and tip of my tongue when drinking soy milk. I am presently gluten, soy, dairy, and egg free.

In Topic: Heart Palpitations/ Tachycardia

06 January 2012 - 09:28 AM

I believe that the heart palpitations and tachycardia (and sometimes atrial fibrillation) are caused by pressure on / irritation of the vagus nerve. This has been a problem for me for more than 30 years and is definitely food related, and for me it is associated with bloating and gassiness as well. I have several trigger foods for it in addition to gluten (corn is even worse than gluten), and it does occur when lying down most often -- the contents of the abdomen move around when we change positions and can put pressure on the heart and on the lungs, sometimes causing shortness of breath and increase in the bloating feeling. I used to get vasovagal syncope (sudden drop in blood pressure and fainting) from this pressure, but now I just get the a-fib, with associated runs of tachycardia and elevated blood pressure. It can be most disconcerting. It is definitely connnected to food and digestion, but hard to find anyone to deal with it because the cardios don't want to talk about digestion and the gastros don't want to talk about heart problems and there is no one out there to put the whole picture together. It gets very frustrating.

Thank you for this information, Mushroom. It describes very well what I also experience. I have had SVT's (supraventricular tachycardia) since I was 13 years old (now 65). I have also experienced the exact frustration you speak of with doctors (the gastros and the heart specialists). Just last night I had the problem when I went to bed so I got up and sat in my easy chair and watched TV until 2 a.m. Everytime I would lie down I would get heart palpitations. I had a lot of upper gas (also have a hiatal hernia so I suppose this doesn't help either). A friend
who has heart palpitations also has the same problem.
