Quick Question On Chest Pain, Heart Beat
0

5 posts in this topic

Ok guys I have been on and off with this gluten thing for a while. I have hypothyroid that can't seem to ever be properly regulated. Been at it for two years (currently on 4 grains of armour). My bowels have been jacked up since my late teens/early twenties (now 28). Recently I started developing chest pains and shortness of breath. Had a halter and EKG which came back good, going for a stess test tommorow. Chest pain seems to be brought on when I eat certain things, I really can't pinpoint it right to gluten. Yesterday I felt good, then last night I ate some chinese food and that was it, I litterally thought I was going to have a heart attack. Laid in bed all night with a rapid heart beat, palps, chest pain, anxiety. I have had the celiac panel (no biopsy), colonoscopy, ANA titer all normal. I do have low vitamin d. Never had iron or anything checked. B12 was in mid range. Not sure what else to think. Any thoughts?

Sounds just like me! My mother had all the thyroid issues, but I had all the other symptoms...the heart stuff showed up around age 30. I went on a strict gluten free diet (you can't ever cheat!) and all my symptoms went away!

Have you been tested for Hashimoto's disease? It's an autoimmune disease and celiac disease is also...from what I've read online if you have one you have a good chance of having the other.

Hope this helps!

Check this out, I had stopped eating soy before Xmas ( in nov),because my tests showed I'm allergic.Thus meant almost all breads ,and similar products to gluten.Anyways Xmas comes around and I ate a few donuts,cinnamon roles,cake.Like the next day my body started shutting down.Muscle tension neck,shoulders,back and irregular heart beat,shortness of breath,cold hands and feet ,super tired,sinuses flared up.I cut out all gluten its been 6days and my shortness of breath has subsided,my heartbeat has leveled off, and all my muscle tension has let up but in exchange I have pain everywhere where I was tense.Kinda like good pain like the muscles have a good hurting feeling like their glad the tension is released snd seems their healing now.I still tired but a better tired like when I sleep it makes a difference instead of that waking up with s nervous feeling.And my hand and feet are warm today snd it was -22 in Montreal today go figure.Im going to doc Wednesday and I'm going to have my thyroid checked but regardless I'm sticking with this gluten free diet another month see where it takes me

    • I can not help you with a cheaper price (google it), but if you have celiac disease, I would make sure the alternative gluten free flours are not milled with gluten flours by calling the manufacturer.    I personally make sure that my gluten-free flours are certified gluten free.  I do not worry about a can of tomatoes.  Odds are the contents are just tomatoes and have not been exposed to gluten during the manufacturing process.   Be careful about buying from open bins in a store.  Chances for cross contamination are great!  We had a member here who smartly requested access to unopened bags each time she went into a store and bypassed the open bins.  The store was really nice about it.    
    • I think that your villi are intact.  So, normally that would mean no evidence of celiac disease.  But Victoria is right, that they should have run a celiac blood panel to help rule out celiac disease.  Why?  The small intestine is vast.  If spread out, it is larger than a tennis court!  The biopsies may not have captured the damaged areas. Consider asking your doctor for a celiac blood test and continue to eat gluten daily until the blood draw or better yet, until you get the test results.  A negative on the blood test will really help rule out celiac disease. A small price to pay for piece of mind.   i hope you feel better soon!  
    • Yes, it is the same test. When used in conjunction with  celiac testing, it verifies that the celiac IgA  test results are valid.  Used alone (not running the celiac tests), if  the Immunoglobulin A result is above or below range....then you are dealing with another set of problems.  For example, my result was above range.  This can be attributed to my having more than one autoimmune disorder and at the same time, it validated the IgA celiac test results.  
    • Grass fed is just the natural, traditional way of cattle eating -- eating grass on the range.  People now pay a higher price for this kind of meat.  It is a leaner meat because cattle do a lot of walking around to graze.    Cattle,  in feed lots or a combination, fatten up fast on a grain diet (e.g. Corn, sit, etc.), plus, we seem to be running out of land and cowboys!  
    • The waiting is very difficult. in the meantime, it's time to start reading the newbie thread and see what you can start doing, as there is nothing wrong with trying a gluten-free diet even if you are not diagnosed with celiac. You could have non celiac gluten intolerance. No way to know if eliminating gluten will help until you try. Don't expect immediate results. Healing takes time. But you might experience relief from the bloating within a few days, personally I had horrible abdominal pain which disappeared within a week. Everyone's bodies are different!
