Aweful Symptoms

04 May 2006 - 08:49 AM

I started having problems about 2 years ago. After i drank alcohol i noticed my heart would race at night. I would also sweat and my temp would actually go up. I finally went in to my doc and i went through a heart monitor for a week which did show my heart racing at around 120-130 . They also did a glucose monitoring thing they put in my stomach for a week. It showed my blood sugar would rise at night sometimes in the 200's and stay up till the morning then it would sometimes crash to about 50. I have had hypoglcemic symptoms most of my life. All of the times my blood sugar was high at night i had had alcohol that evening or alot of carbs.I had glucose tollerance test which was fine. My doctor also did blood tests which shoowed i had a very low ferritin level and my gliadin was high( almost tripled i think). She told me i probably have celiacs. I didnt want to belive it because i didnt want to have to go gluten free. She has put me on metformin to see if it my blood sugar but it has not helped my heart racing. I wish i could find someone els with my symptoms because it would be so much easier for me to accept. When i eat an offending food it is not an instant reaction. Sometimes i can feel my heart pounding right away and sometimes its not tilll the middle of the night. Some of the worst foods for me are popcorn, subway sandwiches, pretzels, ice cream,
. The wierd thing is if it is celiacs could a reaction be to raise my blood sugar? Also, i have had this type of reactions to foods without gluten...i am so confused. Recently i also had some bad ankle pain to where i couldnt walk and they did a bone scan and could see bone loss pretty bad! I had more blood work and had low vitamin D. I am also hypothyroid. Sorry so long! I hope someone can help me.
