  1. Update: Blood shows potassium and magnesium right on the dot for lowest possible level of "normal" but perhaps that is low and not normal to me bc of malabsorption? Stress echo normal. Kicked up 1000 pvcs while on halter. Still having symptoms....
  2. 32 year old healthy woman, possible Celiac. Have been off gluten for about 2 months and stomach pain resolved. However, went on a "gluten-binge" at an event about 2 weeks ago. Since then I've had (in the following order): Frequent urination, low-grade fever, abdominal and pelvic pain, fatigue, mental fog. Most of these have resolved. Had pretty severe constipation for about a week (only went twice) Last Wed I was in the ER for chest pain in the center of my chest (like a fist). Pain moderate and somewhat diffuse. Saturday I was back in ER for squeezing type pain in left chest, left upper arm, and left side of neck. Diagnosed with pre-ventricular contractions (PVCs) of unknown origin. Wearing halter monitor for 24 hours and have stress echo scheduled. Still no diagnosis. Could this all have started from the gluten binge? Can celiac impact heart like this?
