I have had an irregular heart beat for years. I have had it checked numerous times. I have learned that fatigue and stress causes most of my symptoms. Most of the time I notice this at night, when I am laying on my left side. If I am rested, I have very few problems.


Positive biopsy, positive blood test in 2/2006

Muscle biopsy in thigh in 2004 to confirm metabolic myopathy (found denervated nerves)

Interstitial cystitis diagnosis 2004

Hysterectomy 2003

3 for c-sections, 2 laparoscopies to remove abdominal adhesions

Abnormal heart beat when tired or glutened

Can you have stress in your subconcious and not know this? My whole family thinks this is my nerves. And it could very well be. I just dont feel stressed. Fatigued I am and I havent a clue why.

Mirabella,

I had the same exact problem that you're having. Mine was triggered by dehydration and electrolyte issues. I doubt it's anything serious, but if it's really worrying you and affecting your life, you should get it checked out. I hope you feel better soon. Good luck.

Mirabella,

You can absolutely have stress in your subconcious. Any unfinished projects, little irritations, chronic aggrivations, all sorts of things can add a little layer of stress to your body and mind. These stresses can cause depression (fatigue is a common side effect of depression), anger, mood swings, and many other issues. I always think about a quote I saw on a card, "Dr. Phil says, 'To alleviate stress the first thing you need to do is finish all your unfinished business.' So I decided to finish the bottle of wine, the box of chocolates and the bag of chips." :D

Trying to cope with celiac disease and all the new stuff can add a lot of stress too, especially if your family isn't supportive. See your doctor, then get out of the house and do something for yourself like take a walk, get a massage or a mani/pedi, or go out with the girls for gluten-free drinks at a comedy night.
