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.

    • Sorry to hear about the loss, bread is a pain for some, Canyon house makes one many swear by...I have 2 issues with it so I can not even try it. I been using Julian Bakery Bread for awhile, the seed one was wonderful even toast like gluten bread, while the coconut one made the most amazing french toast, and the almond one was great toasted with mashed avocado. I recent perfected a sandwich bread for my bakery, so will be making my own grain free, starch free, 1 net carb bread loafs for myself.
      NOW a bit more on this topic, I am currently converting it to a sugar free German chocolate cake loaf for testing this weekend (these are going to be bakery item only for my store)
    • Hi everyone! I am a 23 yo female and was diagnosed Celiac in January 2016 and have been gluten free since then. My IgA levels are down to 4 and my Celiac is very under control. However, I recently have been dealing with a lot of unexplainable pain and discomfort that no one can seem to explain to me and wanted to see if anyone has experienced anything similar. For about a year, I have been occasionally getting severe abdominal pain that seems to be concentrated in my rectum. It starts by feeling overall icky, crampy and sort of like I have "twinges" in my rectum. It feels like maybe I need to have a bowel movement but I dont, and if I do it doesn't help the pain. So I feel bad, and then all of a sudden I feel like I am being stabbed in my rectum. The stabbing comes and goes but causes me to like roll around on the floor it is so painful. This sometimes only happens once and is over in 20 seconds, but generally it is an all day thing and lasts like 8-10 hours. These generally have been coming 2-3 times per month one day apart. They seem to come about every four weeks (not during my period or ovulation though) and naproxen and heat helps some, so I thought it was maybe OB/GYN related (they also started shortly after I switched for BC pill to an IUD) but I have seen two OB/GYNs and both have no idea and think it is gastrointestinal, maybe gas pain of some sort that is possibly triggered by hormones related to my cycle. However my gastroenterologist is also stumped and thinks its related to my uterus cause it seems to be somewhat cyclical. Anyway they're horrible and I can't figure out what they are, they don't seem to be related to what I eat (though I should probably start tracking) or a particular time of day. Sometimes they seem to come while I am exercising, but sometimes they wake me up in the middle of the night. I should also add that I have no GI symptoms involved with these painful episodes, my bowel movements seem completely normal, no gas or anything either. Also, the last two days, I have woken up in the middle of the night with the feeling of being bloated and crampy. Not painful per say but extremely unpleasant. Again, I'm not on my period so idk what is causing this, especially cause both times it woke me up and I am a deep sleeper. Now, for the last 30 minutes I have been having non-painful muscle spasms in my left lower abdomen. It feels like a flutter, if I put my fingers against the spasm I can feel it distinctly. Again it doesn't hurt, but feels weird and I've never had a muscle spasm there before. If anyone has ever had any of these symptoms before or has any idea what me going on I'd be very grateful! Is it possible its related to glutening? Since I caught my Celiac really early I don't really know what my symptoms of being glutened are, the few times I know I have been I don't get diarrhea but instead extreme bloating, acid reflux, and overall feeling really crappy and anxious. I have a whole host of health issues these days that have been causing me a lot of stress (I'm in medical school and don't have time for these debilitating pains!) and it would be awesome to have some answers.   Thank you all, K
    • Thank you!   I see a Dietician early next month and figured I will need to be more strict early on.    There is so much to learn.  I am grateful for the apps available that allow me to scan UPC's to find out what is and is not gluten-free, but will be confirming by reading labels  too.   I cleared out quite a bit of space in my cupboard today.  It is only me in the house since I lost my husband earlier this year so it will be easier to control what is in the house.    He loved bread as much as me so it would have been much harder with the 2 of us here
    • Welcome to the board. Many of us keep safe gluten free snacks on hand for times when we are away from home.  In addition to what Karen mentioned fruits, nuts, hard boiled eggs etc. If it is a long trip a cooler can keep stuff fresh for you and they make ones that you can plug into your car. How were you diagnosed? Many folks carry the genes but don't develop celiac. You should have had a celiac panel blood test and an endoscopy. If you are new to the lifestyle then do check out the Newbie 101 threead at the top of the Coping section. it has a lot of info to keep you safe.
    • If you are super sensitive (or have become super sensitive) there is an oats purity protocol used by just a few companies. The fields do not grow gluten containing grains for 4-5 years before the oats are planted, the fields are walked several times a season for any plants not belonging to be pulled by hand, and all the equipment and facilities used to harvest are dedicated equipment. It's a bit pricey, but it produces the only oats that I don't react to (although I have not tried all certified gluten free oats).  There are a couple variations of magnesium. Some cause loose stools so check the source of magnesium (and make sure it's gluten-free). Calm I've used with no problem. If you are stressed, you will burn through magnesium faster.  Roommates create some complications. I had a shared kitchen for a vacation this past year, and I was constantly cleaning. I'm so used to my gluten-free kitchen I became very aware of sinks being used to pour pasta water in, bread crumbs left from a cut sandwich, and how much gluten a simple sponge can be exposed to. I kept my sponge to clean my area in a ziplock bag next to the sink. And if I was cleaning fruit or veggies, I filled a large bowl with water to use so I wouldn't have to always be cleaning the sink. If you have wooden utensils, make sure they aren't be accidentally used. A friend was getting cross-contaminated from shared condiments.  My celiac reactions for cross contamination are not gastro but neurological so I can't offer much with that. A proper glutening is the only thing that gives me gastro symptoms, and it is the most painful experience! In either case, I drink lots of water. I will drink a gallon on those days. Throw some Calm in there, but force fluids. I also use Ultima Replinisher (which I typically use after exercise) if I'm forcing fluids, and I drink mugs of warm broth if my gut is really not doing well.  Hang in there, C. Hope you feel better soon.
