Tachycardia

9 posts in this topic

Most of you know that I have had fluctuating thyroid and stomach pain. Not to mention inability to sleep.

Last doctor appointment (3 or so weeks ago) I had a high heart rate. I am now doing a gym class where we have to take our heart rates. I took it after sitting at my desk for 30 minutes and mine was 114. For a 17 year old that is fairly high "best range" being 60-80. So I have taken it several more times over and over and I finally took it right when I woke up this morning and it was 114. As soon as I woke up ( no alarm). I have a feeling this is why I can't hardly sleep.

I took it after doing cardio in gym for 10 minutes as well. That result was 150. Only 10 minutes of cardio and I had waited 30 minutes to take it.

We are trying to get in to my very good family doctor (who we should have seen to begin with) but he is retiring this year and he is very booked. It is a possibility that I won't be able to get in until March. I was wondering if you guys know anything about Tachycardia and whether I should see a different doctor instead if he can't get me in until march.

Keep in mind that it has been high 3 weeks now. I took it right now and it is about 94.

Interesting. Do you currently have Celiac Disease? Or is that what you are trying to find out. I was just tested today, so not sure yet, but I was only 19 when I had a sudden onset of Tachycardia. Seen a cardiologist who did a 24hr halter monitor, and knew for certain that my heart rate was way above where it should be, but could not find anything wrong. He put me on meds to find slow it down, which worked and eventually I was able to get off the meds without my heart rate going through the roof. Besides that, I had a pulmonary stress test which showed I have problems taking in a deep breath. Nobody could ever find a cause and it was put off by most doctors as Anxiety. I however, always insisted it was something more, but nothing ever came back positive. I started researching Celiac because I believe my daughter might have it, and I realized I have some of the symptoms as well.

Not sure if a family dr. is the right one to see, but is a good start. If you can't see him, maybe he could recommend a cardiologist for you to see in the mean time?

That's a classic sign of hyperthyroidism as is the insomnia. If I were you, I'd book with the good doctor in March, but also get in to see whoever you can ASAP. There are antithyroid meds and beta blockers that you can be given that can help your symptoms and that tachycardia can't be good for your heart. They might also want to test you for Graves'. You don't have TPO antibodies, right?

Crappy Doctor said the TPO tests were normal. My TSH levels have never been under 2.5 so still pretty high for graves disease. But my T4 was off the chart in the high direction.

We managed to get an appointment with the good doctor on Wednesday. I've been recording my heart rate when I wake up for the doctor to see when we go in on Wednesday. Well see what he says, I don't know if I'm bad enough to see a cardiologist. Of course my good family doctor will tell us whether I should or not.

I had a really rough night last night. I tossed and turned and could not get back to sleep from 3 to 5:30 and woke up again at 6:30 when I got up. I'm also not feeling very good today ( head ache, sore legs, "sour" stomach). I'm really excited to see a doctor who I know is committed to finding out what is wrong and helping me out in the meantime. I'm thinking the reason I have a hard time sleeping is because I can't get my heart rate under 90.

Any who I'm glad we got in on Wednesday. Hopefully I don't die in the meantime lol, jk. :P

I had horrible tachycardia when my ferritin was in the toilet. Have you had a full iron panel and ferritin test? If your thyroid is hyper then you could have tachycardia from that also. You need to find a good endocrinologist. If that checks out fine then maybe a cardiologist.

My normal resting heart rate is higher than the average and I'm very sensitive to anything that stimulates the heart. It is not unusual for me to have a resting heartrate of 90 or so.

I hope you can sort things out soon. Have you considered trying the gluten free diet again? It might bring you some relief. You may not be celiac, but there are plenty of people with gluten intolerance that are affected just as much.

My resting heart rate has been over 115 for a LONG time!

When I mentioned it to my PCP she didn't think anything of it. I also have a lot of trouble sleeping.

I hope you'll post what you find out?

There is a stage in Hashimotos thyroiditis (normally considered underactive thyroid function) where the thyroid is actually OVER active.

As the immune system is attacking the thyroid the thyroid is trying to fight back. This can result in radical changes in your blood tests.

    • Has anyone here experienced chest pain and under left rib cage after being gluten?? I was out of town this past weekend and had a gluten free pizza from a pizza restaurant and may have been cross contaminated🤷🏾‍♂️
    • Hi all- im so sorry you are suffering from this gluten nightmare.....  here's my story in a nutshell. Any friendly advice is much appreciated. I am 41, female, healthy weight, ex smoker.. even quit alcohol 10 months ago because of AI disease. Been DX'd with 1) Sjogren's Syndrome and 2) Relapsing Polychondritis. For those that don't know, RP is an AI disease where the body destroys its cartilage. Its pretty aggressive and there is no cure. It is fatal for alot of ppl when the airways collapse. Ive had chronic inflammation for probably 10 years but it is getting progressively worse. It didn't dawn on me until a few weeks ago that gluten intolerance may be driving this. I am in between doctors. I have a new patient apt w/ a new internal med doc 06/28/17. Id planned to ask her then to please test me for celiacs. (going back onto gluten to test this makes me ill thinking about it) My brother and mother have it. I feel good and have plenty of energy. I am a healthy weight. I run, I bike, I walk, I take an hour long aerobics class 3 days a week. I have NO digestive issues. My 10 page labs are green across the board, except for high inflammation. Ive started researching this issue. Ive had more injections in the neck and back and wrists than I can remember. Ive had ablations, exploratory surgeries, botox, trigger point injections.. even a level 2 cervical fusion due to high inflammation in the spine and OA destroying the discs. I have reduced gluten as much as humanly possible. I quit drinking. I take a good quality probiotic and fish oil. My hormones are all good- I take sublinguals for those. My thyroid is perfect. My periods are perfect. My skin is clear. Ive stopped eating dairy, corn and soy. I pretty much currently live off big homemade green salads with olive oil, I make my own soap (which I use as shampoo) I make my own laundry detergent..I even started eating several fork fulls a day of fermented cabbage (ughh) because of the healthy benefits to the gut. Its only been a few weeks. Am I just impatient? What gives? My eyes, wrists and spine are absolutely on FIRE. XXOOO   Tracy
    • This is really tough.  There is still a lot of research needed in diagnosing (or dismissing) celiac disease.  It shouldn't be months/years of misery and uncertainty. A couple of years ago Dr. Marsh (THE Dr. Marsh of the Marsh biopsy rating system) criticized the US celiac community for not recognizing an increase in IELs as early celiac disease. He asked if these doctors would like to be responsible for the oseoperosis or lymphoma of the undiagnosed patients.  I have also seen that it can take months for antibodies to rise.  There was a paper (2015) that looked at gluten challenges in diagnosed celiac patients.  These are folks with confirmed celiac  and for some it took over 3 months for blood tests to show anything. I hope the strict gluten-free diet works for you. I hope to hear you report back in a couple of months.  I'm undergoing my gluten challenge right now. Week 2. It's just really tough. 
    • My 13 and 7 year old have Celiac Disease and my 4 year old has the genes.  I have a double dose of the genes so no matter what my children will get a gene that could develop into the disease.  I hope that my youngest son doesn't ever develop the disease, but his dr said it could activate later in life.  My kids are thriving, they have normal lives, they are smart and have gained knowledge about food that they can carry with them throughout their life.   They really don't let anything stop them from living a normal life.  I think you'll have the upper hand if you choose to have kids.  You'll have the knowledge of what to do to keep them safe if they do have Celiac Disease.  You'll be able to relate since you were young when you were diagnosed.  How was it for you growing up? 
    • My 7 year old son has this happen.  I too get highly angry, like could flip a vehicle kind of angry.  It's hard for the little ones to understand what is going on at the time, only knowing that they can't control themselves....  The glazed crazy look in his eye are always a tell.  Sleep helps, along with lots of water the following day.  The next day we talk about everything and try to figure out what could have glutened him.  We've had talks with our school and teachers letting them know that our son is to not eat anything unless we bring it.  I think the last time this happened to him was from using shared supplies after a treat party.  Now he's very cautious of putting his hands to his lips or mouth.    Now as far as chips, my kids stick with Kettle Brand Chips.  They are certified.  Potatoes aren't my friend so I can't really say if they taste great.
