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?

Well thanks everyone seriously. I'm sure this will get better and I'm thankful this reaction is normal. So guilty when I think of others worse off than me. I will read and read and read until I've taught myself to feel better. And then help others ((((hugs all around)))

I'm curious to hear updates on your EC condition. Thanks

@Larkie how are you lips doing now? Have you found something that worked for you yet? I'm curious and eager for updates from anyone who overcame this condition. Thanks

The fullness of the Eucharist is found in the wine alone. However, glutenfreewatchdog did an article on the low gluten hosts recently. She tested a single host from the Benedictine sisters and found it to contain 0.0017 mg of gluten. Compare that to the 0.57mg found in a piece of gluten free brea...

You make me want to go to Montreal just to get croissants. I love a warm croissant with ham and swiss, melted, then lettuce, tomato and honey dijon mustard. Yum! I hear Schar sells croissants now. Will have to try once I get better.
