Hi, I’ve been feeling unwell at the moment where I’m out of breath, tired all the time have a cough but not regular, my heart somethings beats a lot quicker and tight chest, I’ve had blood tests and a chest X-ray along side a COVID test and all have come back fine but looking at google it’s seems some of my symptoms are similar to celiac. I just ate some food and my stomach is hurting. Plus I seem to be going to the toilet a lot more and just wanted some advise on if everything seems to be related

If you have access to health care it would make sense for you to get screened for celiac disease. There are home tests available for under $100 if you don't have healthcare. To be screened you need to keep eating gluten daily until all tests are completed. Here is info on the blood tests:

Thats what made me click onto have a gluten and dairy problem! 

My symptoms were wheezing, tight chest and rapid heart beat. Do you have asthma by any chance? I do and gluten and dairy are bad for it in my case. Since I've cut them out and gone vegan it's Improved.

Also please make sure that no creams or anything you are putting on your skin have gluten. I made that mistake a few months ago and the wheezing was terrifying. 😰 

In my case it depends on how much gluten I have by accident a small amount it's a headache or migrane with tiredness, dizziness, constaption, body aches and that then progresses onto breathing difficulties and last week I made a mistake with a load of oat cakes! It makes me collapse with severe mood changes. 

 

Be safe please.

Hi, the nurse at my doctors thought it was asthma but the inhalers I had wasn’t working and I kept going back as the simplest things would make me out of breath tight chest and rapid heart rates but over the last few weeks eating has become harder. I only use the normal shower stuff but haven’t looked at the ingredients yet. Just getting frustrated as they can’t seem to see what’s wrong

David and Jo, 

Those symptoms you described are also symptoms of early thiamine deficiency.  The trouble breathing, cough, rapid heart rate, fatigue and digestive problems are all early thiamine deficiency symptoms.  

We can become low in thiamine within two weeks if we eat a high carbohydrate diet, are very physically active especially outdoors in hot weather,  and if we are under emotional stress or are ill.  (Doctors are giving thiamine to Covid patients with vitamin C and B6 to prevent sepsis.)

Thiamine deficiency is easily overlooked by doctors because the symptoms are so subtle. Ask your doctor for an erythrocyte transketolase test to check for thiamine deficiency.   

Hope this helps!

as knitty kitty said it may well be thiamine deficiency or gluten, dairy or all three. maybe you could bring this up with your doctor ?

with the inhaler situation that is the same as me they had me on max strength and nothing helped till I sorted it out myself with dietary changes. asthma is an umbrella term and anything can flair it off for me its foods and seasonal allergies.  

have a wee look online there are a few really good bits of info on this like with gluten, dairy and asthma. 

if you don't want to maybe try cutting out gluten for a while and see how you symptoms improve 

thiamine rich foods are 

black beans

lentils 

edamame beans 

macadamia nuts

and if youre not vegan then pork,beef

DavidCrook,

I think Knitty Kitty has given you a good resource.

Try finding some Benfotiamine a Fat Soluble B1 and take it with meals.

See this article about the Vitamins deficiency that can cause a racing heart....

https://www.livestrong.com/article/503879-vitamin-deficiencies-racing-heart/

Thiamine and Magnesium Glycinate can also help your fatigue issues.

This is a nice article too how back in the "Olden Days" before doctor's knew Vitamins were things in foods that kept us healthy before an enlarged heart ( a sign of "wet" beri beri) was caused by a Vitamin deficiency.

This article explains why it is so that people/sailors could/would develop "Sailors Asthma" from a Thiamine Deficiency aka Beri Beri back in the day or Kakke if you know a little Japanese and how they used Barley to defeat Beri Beri in the Japanese Navy.

I hope this is helpful but it is not medical advise.

I was going to make a new post describing what happens to me, but you said it perfectly.  I experience the exact symptoms.  I guess you answered that for me 😕
