8 posts in this topic

For the past yr, I have had tachycardia and heart palpations, ringing of the ears and panic attacks when this occurs, I have had my thyriod checked, saw a heart specialist and they have ruled this all out, I have always had gastric issues good majority of my adult life, nausea, bloating,diarrhea, constipation and chronic gastritist.My primary Dr. tested me for celiac and had a endoscopy and came back positve for it. It does explain all the gastric issues but still concerned about my other issues, they just cant figure it out and im wondering is anyone else experincing this? I am slowly tring to change my diet but its not easy. I have found when I do eat gluten filled products, Im up all night, having palpataions and feel like I have poison and toxins in my body I also constanly have my arm, legs or all over my body jerking right before i try to fall asleep. This is driving me crazy and In fear of my life. Its so discouraging that they cant figure out whats wrong and I fear its something pretty serious, I did have a head cat scan and it also came back normal! Thank god! But if anyone can give me some info or are experincing the same feedback would be so appriciated. I feel like Im going nuts!!!!!1 Help

OK

If you are going gluten free... It's all or nothing. "gluten lite' is a complete waste of time. imo

I did have some symptoms like that after taking an allergy medication just before a serious gall bladder attack. i have had my gall bladder removed for about 3 years and haven't had problems since.

Go back to a doctor and have your blood pressure checked, thyroid, and gall bladder.

Your doctor should be checking your Vitamin B levels--especially B12 and folic acid. Heart palpitations are very common with low Vitamin B12, and you can take Methyl B12 sublingually. It's an over-the-counter supplement, very inexpensive, and immediately effective. BTW, all of your vitamin and mineral levels should be checked.

Araceli...

Stop eating gluten... You've been diagnosed so that's not even a question mark for you.

With that said...

I have heart palpitations as well. I've been gluten-free since July 11 and already I see a huge improvement. I take atenolol for the palpitations (twice a day)... However, I've not really felt I need the dose at night. I will be checking with my doc at next visit to see if I can transition to just 1 dose in the morning. With the way I've been feeling, I'm quite hopeful that the palpitations will go away completely.

I see other symptoms improving, too. Feels so good to have real hope for the first time in years!

So...best advice... Do what your body needs...stop the gluten...

You need to be all the way gluten free. Even though it is hard, you must get rid of the gluten, because even traces can cause your symptoms to continue. Cross contamination is enough to keep people from healing. Once you are gluten free you should be feeling better. My heart palpitations stopped completely as well as migraine headaches. I think you are feeling like you have poison and toxins in your body after you eat gluten because that is exactly what gluten is to a Celiac...poison. Read labels on everything and eliminate gluten so you can feel better.

I should have added that magnesium levels are tied closely to heart health, too, and the American diet is low in magnesium. Celiacs tend to have very low levels at times....so you should DEFINITELY consider getting a magnesium supplement. If you're worried about how it might affect your stomach, two brands are easy on the digestive system: Bluebonnett's liquid magnesium and Nature's Way Magnesium Complex.

I have had Pre Atrial Contractions or PAC, and Panic Attacks for years. Please insist that they check all the Vitamin B levels; B1,B6 and B12. My husband had to insist they did this. My B levels were so low I had to have IV's and daily injections for a while. If they are low you should start feeling a big difference with treatments. You must be very diligent in your gluten free diet as even traces or small amounts can damage your small intestines. The sooner you control it with no exceptions, the better you will feel. My analogy for celiac disease is to do the diet. Would you stick your finger into an electric socket knowing you would be shocked. My panic attacks have abated or are almost gone; my atrial fibrillation had improved markedly. Remember there is no cheating

I had chest pains, dizziness, vertigo, migraines in addition to the gastro symptoms and they ask went away when I stopped eating gluten. it is hard to be gluten free at times, but it is so much easier than the stress I went through constantly thinking I was dying.

    • After their seven-month-old baby died weighing less than 10 pounds, a mother and father in Beveren, Belgium, are standing trial on charges that they starved the child by negligently providing an alternative gluten-free diet, with no medical supervision. The couple, who ran a natural food store, put their son Lucas on an alternative gluten-free, lactose-free diet, which included quinoa milk, despite doctors describing it as unsuitable for developing infants.

    • Thank you so much for the reply, the book recommendations and the link. Really useful and I appreciate it.  Will definitely look into them.  Thanks again. 
    • an allergy test for tap water sounds quite suspicious, i've never seen any type of water listed as part of a food allergy test panel. i can't imagine how that is possible to test for, sounds like it would be a extremely rare allergy also doesn't tap water vary depending where you are. do you have a reaction to drinking water? what are your symptoms when you eat those foods?
      if it was an IgE allergy test, i believe the blood test more commonly has false positives than the skin scratch test but false positives are very common for both thats why there is usually a disclaimer saying that it may not be nesscessary to cut out all positive results especially if you have no allergic reaction after eating it. you allergist may be able to offer you some kind of allergen immunotherapy or a dietician referral.
      if you had the IgA/IgG food intolerance/ sensitivity testing, the same type of testing that is promoted a lot on instagram, it is not scientifically accurate. the positive results just indicate food you have been exposed too which are then wrongly interpreted as meaning they are allergies. so i definitely wouldn't make any significant diet chances based those results. other than an elimination diet there is no accurate testing for food intolerances although it would be great if there was. its possible that you could coincidently be intolerant or allergic to some those positive foods or you may have no problem with them.

    • Are you sure TTG IGA was 1? Anyway, a high on any one test should lead to a gastroenterologist doing an endoscopy to confirm celiac. Your not supposed to go gluten free until after all testing is done. Your results show high for dgp iga and dgp igg. Not a doc, my opinion only.
