The Start

One day, I was doing some roofing and I got a fairly sharp pain in my chest, left side. It was not a jolt like you hear a heart attack would be like. However it did hurt, it hung around for about 30 minutes then it went, I thought I may of pulled a muscle. After all I was doing physical labour, which I was not used to.

A few days later it came back again, this time it lasted about 20 minutes. I had been taking it easy as I figured it was a pulled muscle.

After about a week of this on and off, I decided to go and get it check out at the hospital. I am not the sort of person to visit the doctors very often, I think it was about 5 years since I had seen one, after all I was a healthy male aged 30.

The visit to the hospital was rather quick, I went in, said I was having chest pains, they rushed me out back and hooked me up for a heart scan, there was nothing. My heart was very well by all accounts. The doctors agreed it was a pulled muscle and told me to go home, take it easy and it should ease within a few weeks...

Yes, it can be very confusing and scary- cause those Pectoral muscles can mimic pain involved with the heart.

I had some of those same symptoms, and probably my doctors went to the same schools as yours! So frustrating! Hope you continue to feel better.

I had heart pains...I know they say you can't feel your heart, but let me tell you I did. My heart pains were sometimes severe, and I was told I had Mitro Valve Prolapse. The last couple of years before I went gluten free, I felt "water bubbles" in my heart for just a few seconds at a time. Very scary at first. I have no heart pains at all anymore. When I did the gluten challenge, they came back.

This is exactly what happened to me before I knew that I was gluten intolerant. I still do not understand how the muscle spasms are related to a gluten reaction. Do you know?

Ummm what does this have to do with our gluten free community? Good point about giving stuff you would need to the community and all....but has nothing to do with celiac disease really, just mentions you should not give gluten free bread to a homeless persons that does not need it stating that it...

In Austin, Wildwood Bakehouse and Wilder Wood Restaurant are totally gluten free. I had the chicken fried steak and gravy and onion rings!!! Awesome!!!

If you yourself have Celiac's disease, you probably shouldn't give gluten-free sandwiches to the homeless, because they're disgusting. Your male neighbor doesn't need tampons. That sort of reasoning should be applied. But you must always remember that the Gospel requires you to treat other people...

Hi there I have this exact same thing.. however I don?t have celiac that I know of.. I found this when google searching for what the heck is wrong with my face. I was wondering if you ever found out.. or if it just went away. Thanks

I have read the newbie 101 and have been careful about reading labels. I'm the only one that's gluten free in my household, so they could be contaminating me. I was eating gluten for 6 weeks after my blood test because it took that long to get an official diagnosis and my GP told me to still be e...
