Not sure if these even were palpitations or what they were..

But around my late 20's...  maybe 26 or 28....   I started getting this weird spasm type sensation in my chest.. They felt like a very quick short "pumping" type sensation.. like something was constricting then releasing very quickly..  would last only a second or two then gone..   and would come randomly..  if I was just laying on the couch doing nothing... or exercising..

I had an EKG done for something else unrelated.. that turned out to be just a sore chest muscle from weights and I figured if the other thing was something serious it would see that as well.. but the EKG came back normal..  so I just forgot about it.... But kept having them everyday up until about a month ago.....    Then it just stopped...   haven't had it anymore.. after having it daily for the past probably 15 years...  

The only obvious change in my lifestyle has been not eating Gluten for the past 2 months and taking a multi vitamin...

Was it das Gluten????????????????

It definitely could be related to eating gluten if you are sensitive to it. I had similar issues, went to the emergency room a couple of times because it felt like heart issues, but they found nothing. I also had panic attacks that were sometimes associated with this, and the feeling of vertigo. This was at the height of my symptoms before I finally got diagnosed.

Of course it could also be a heart issue too, so get it checked out by a doctor just in case.
