Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I used to have the heart palpitaions off and on..now it is every day all day long? Anyone else have this issue? What can it be caused from? I have also been breaking out in cold sore in my nose and on my mouth alot lately? It is frustrating! The dr's say it is anxiety, but honestly it is the feeling that is causing me to be anxious! Any thoughts would be appreciated! I have had my thyroid checked and is within normal rangeTSH 1.340 Triiodothyronine Free Serum 2.8 and T4 Direct 1.04...I guess this is normal? Even checked for Hashimotos since my sister has it but the antibody test was negative. Jodie

Heart palpitations. I have them and so do others in my family. Here is what works for me. I drink one Gatorade or Propel daily. Seems to work. My dad has atrial fibrillation so when the cardiac arrhythmia specialist at Mayo told him to try this I started it too. If I stop for a week, the flutters start again so now I just always drink one a day.

A friend went to the hospital one day with a heart beat sky high. She also has a family history of this problem. Little town with a young ER doctor. They actually gave her a shot that stopped her heart from beating. The drugs effect only lasted a few seconds and her heart started again on it's own and back to a normal rhythm. He told her he could give her a drug to regulate her heart rate or she could try an over the counter potassium pill. He said potassium sometimes can help regulate the beats. This works for her.

YES! It was horrible. The heart Dr. said my heart was enlarged. He sent me to an endocronologist...... it's a long story.

It took awhile for me to figure it out, but my adrenal glands were in over drive pumping out adrenaline to control my blood sugar levels. Also I struggled with low blood pressure. I think I was low on every single vitamin there is! I went gluten free and then took it a step farther and went on the Specific Carbohydrate Diet. In time all the symptoms went away. It's been a year since I started the SCD.

I didn't find a Dr. who could help me. Went to 4 specialists. It was through this website that I found answers. We are all so different - so keep working. One thing I read and found out for myself was - there is no magic pill or food that will make me feel better, it was eliminating foods that caused the symptoms.

Since you said the Dr. told you it was anxiety I'm assuming you are not anemia (iron or B-12). B-12 deficiency causes cancer sores - terribly (been there done that too!) However you could be low on other B vitamins - which can lead to a racing heart too.

Find a new Dr. - or become your own Dr. You know your body better than anyone. I pray you get relief - the heart racing cause me major anxiety!!!! I'm glad it's gone.

Your gluten free aren't you? Celiac's often have cancer sores and racing hearts.

Yes, I have been gluten free for almost 3 years now! I am very careful! But this is something that has been a struggle off and on! Other things have changed this last year. I had a hysterectomy in March, ovaries were left, but I have not been the same since! The heart thing really freaks me out! So, I know I need to keep fighting just like I had to when I was sick before finding out about having Celiac. They said I was dpressed or anxious and needed a psychologist or whatever! I could have been on any meds I wanted at that time! I am not a big vitamin person as i am so sensitive, but I have started a Cal/Mag and a B complex. Thanks for your response! I will keep on trying to figure it out!
