Occasional Racing Heart During Somewhat Vigorous Exercising - Normal?

6 posts in this topic

I get some palpitations during the day, for awhile it had been almost completely resolved with iron supplements (I now take Metagenics Hemagenics 2/day) so not sure if I need to increase my iron even though my numbers are more normal. Also taking Synthroid, I'm within normal range (about 1.5 on my doc's lab reference range).

But, recently I have been wearing a Polar FT60 heart rate monitor for smart exercise and at the end of my workout it displays my high and low HR - yesterday I walked up a big hill and when I reached the trail I noticed my HR decreasing from the high 140's which sort of surprised me... at the end of my exercise I reviewed my data and saw that I'd had a high of 198 (my max is 182)! Since I've been wearing the monitor for the last two weeks of workouts, I see that occasionally my heart rate goes up to 171 for about 30 secs, etc. I wouldn't know it if I wasn't wearing a monitor. I'd mentioned it to my endocrinologist/internist the other day and he said maybe it is SVT, he was not too alarmed by it. My workouts are not overly strenuous, most time is spent within 126-144 bpm, and the racing doesn't happen at every workout.

My resting HR is about 64 bpm and my blood pressure is usually about 110/70. My cholesterol numbers are all great, 177 total, high HDL, moderate LDL. I am Celiac Sprue, I'm gluten-free/dairy-free and eat a low-carb diet with no caffeine. I had been taking Rhodiola and 5-HTP both of which I've stopped about 2 weeks ago. I take vitamin and mineral supplements. I am very overweight.

Does anyone else have this experience? Is it normal? I'm very very worried about this being a doomsday scenario so I'm hoping your feedback will help calm my nerves.

If you are alarmed by this you may want to ask for a consult with a heart specialist. I suspect it is nothing to worry about but if troubling should be checked out.

thanks, yes, I will follow-up with my internist. I was just hoping that someone else has had the experience and maybe it was a normal occurrence.

all of my random episodes of tachycardia, palpitation, & orthostatic hypotension have all disappeared since going gluten free.

while i can speculate about cortisol levels since u stopped rhodiola... or what types of exercise is best for u-> the most important thing is that u get this all checked with your PCP, and a cardiologist.... just run all the proper tests to be safe & rule out anything serious.

i have svt after years of tests done. my heart rate will do the same thing ... i've had it in the 200's before on several occassions. i have noticed a MAJOR improvement since being gluten free. i will notice around my cycle that it will act up and that is quite possibly the hormonal fluctuations that naturally occur. i was and sometimes still stop-in-my-tracks scared to death because of the palps along with racing for no apparent reason. but like i said i've had many tests to rule things out and its best for you to see a cardiologist that is just as serious as you are about discovering the root cause. if he/she tells you to drop a few pounds or its all in your head or anxiety find another doctor if you are not satisfied. i was told all of the above but it ended up being a real problem with my electrical system in my heart.

if it is svt ... relaxation techniques, staying away from gluten, msg, alcohol and other triggers will help aleviate the frequency. and it is benign for the most part ... but again make sure the specialist who ruled everything else out confirms that. best wishes. :)

    • People with fibromyalgia often experience symptoms similar to those seen in patients with gluten-related disorders. Could these patients have some kind of hidden gluten sensitivity? Could a gluten-free diet offer improvement in their condition? Is a gluten-free diet better than hypocaloric diet for these patients? A team of researchers recently set out to evaluate the effects of a gluten-free diet (GFD) compared with a hypocaloric diet (HCD) in a group of fibromyalgia patients. View the full article
    • I have been dealing with pain for thirty some years.  I have been diagnosed with RA (sed rate high) due to joint inflammation and nodules, OA due to xray, mri results, fibromyalgia at one point because they didn't want to tell me it was all in my head and, I have nodules on my thyroid.  Other than my sed rate being high, my blood work comes back "normal" so, other than the Methotrexate for RA, I am on no meds for pain.  I take Ibuprofen when needed.  I do not take "pain meds" because I have a low tolerance to medication and I just cant function even if I take 800mg of Ibuprofen.  Example . .. I get a cold and take children's cold medicine.  I take 1/2 the dose of a six year old and it knocks me out.  Some days the pain is so bad, I can barely walk.  My husband bought me a hot tub a few years back for my birthday and it is my go to on bad days.   I was tested for Celiac's and came back okay.  The only other blood work that comes back out of whack are MCHC, low . . . MCH, low . . . RDW, high, . . . ESR, anywhere from 20 to 85 but normally around 40ish . . . TSH, 2.0 or below.  But, the doctors say the first three are not so far out of range that we should worry about it, the ESR just means there is inflammation and the TSH is within normal range.  I have recently gone gluten, dairy, and sugar free in an effort to combat symptoms, pain and weight.  I have noticed a difference in the inflammation and in my general overall wellbeing.  I seem to be more attentive, have more energy, and not is no much pain.  My questions are:  Does anyone else have similar issues while all blood work is coming back normal?  And, any suggestions on how to introduce items back into my diet to test for reactions?  Should I start with gluten or dairy?  The sugar I can live without.  Any info would be helpful.  I look things up on the internet but end up with a bunch of pop up ads for things that are going to cure me.  Thanks in advance.  
    • There is nothing you can really do about the high antibodies.  If it is any consolation, mine have been as high.    Your TSH is too high.  The acceptable range now is around 1 to 3.  You might benefit by increasing your thyroid replacement (or starting) if you are not taking it now.  I feel best when my TSH is closer to a 1.  
    • Do you have a dental school anywhere close?  Even a couple of hour drive might be worth looking into.  See if you can talk to one of the clinical supervisors/dentists.  This would be a case they would like. Or just show up to an Emergency room at a big hospital - if its serious, they can't turn you away.  Because that is what will happen eventually.   Edit - Call up Texas A & M school of dentistry and get your butt up to Dallas!
