I am so sorry to hear that you are having these symptoms. First thing I tell anybody when they tell me about their heart doing anything out of the ordinary is to seek medical advice to make sure that there is nothing wrong.
Have you had this fluttering before? It can have many causes. Do you have panic attacks? I don't know of any connection between heart and cramps unless it would be circulation. With the intense perspiration that you are describing, you may be sweating out your electrolytes, thus causing the cramping. Do you have diabetes or any other condition? And then the important question, are you on any prescription meds?
Our lives are precious and must be taken care of. Go to a doctor and rule out any type of heart disease. Get a clean bill of health. And then we will go from there.
Quinine helps cramping. This can be bought at health food stores.
I wish you the best sweetie and I hope you feel better. Find out what is going on. It may just be anxiety, but we need to be safe and know for sure.
You are taking blood pressure pills to lose weight? This does not sound right. How high is your blood pressure when you are not taking the pills? I would clarify this with my doctor, as blood pressure pills should not be taken if one does not have high blood pressure.
It sounds like the heart fluttering could be caused by stress. I experience that at times too.
I would recommend relaxation and meditation for the stress. Also apple cider vinegar. I have become aware, just today, as a matter of fact, of certain other ingredients that will enhance the effects of apple cider vinegar. I am going to send you over to this link and there is a question and answer section, "Ask Ted." I think he will be able to give you better answers as to what dosage to take for perfect alkalinity and may be able to answer questions with regard to your specific situation.
However, check your blood pressure medicine and your heart with your doctor. Possibly get a second opinion, this just doesn't sound right.
Great minds think alike. LOL
Yes, I did misunderstand what you said. We have a lot in common. Weight can cause many problems. Once you lose those unwanted pounds, a lot of your health issues will go away and you will notice that you have more energy.
I, like you, have a thyroid problem. Hypothyroidism,and it is a constant battle to keep my weight down because of my slow metabolism. I mostly live on salads and have one good meal a day. I am on Synthroid, but looking for natural alternatives to treat this problem. This is my last hurdle.
I am very glad that you are losing weight slowly, as that is the best way. Develop healthy habits of a proper diet and exercise. Don't forget the exercise. I hate exercising I love to walk.
What are you doing to rev your thyroid? Maybe you can point me in the right direction?
Still, stress needs to be controlled, although sometimes things happen that make it really hard to cope. I include meditation and relaxation in my daily routine.
It is also so very nice to meet you! I, too, am looking forward to getting to know you better.
What you say is very interesting and rings a bell. I have been on synthroid, for let's see, gosh almost 20 years now. Still the same dose. Before synthroid I was almost lethargic. At least that is under control. However, my temperature also ranges from 95 to 97. I do take apple cider vinegar daily and have left a question for Ted on the proper usage of apple cider vinegar. I think I will ask him about how it woul relate to my thyroid. I have seen the Moreless Forum and actually read very little. Got sidetracked. But the fact that you said that you haven't noticed much difference is a bit disappointing. Maybe it takes a certain amount of time to catch on? I saw a post from EarthClinic and was actually impressed with their reference to baking soda. This is brand new to me, so I thought I would question Ted more on it.
I think we will share and learn a lot from each other.
Bless your hearty San, thank you. And thank you for sharing what you know with me. You cannot believe the hope you have given me. I will read his article. I have been taking synthroid for 20 years now. I have been learning to live naturally now for just two years and in that time have rid myself from all prescription drugs. My biggest problem was asthma. Now I only have synthroid and it bothers me knowing that I am still taking that. Every morning as I swallow the pill I think blecch. However, now I know that there is a way to have a healthy thyroid without a synthetic drug.
Thank you San. It would be wonderful to be free from all synthetic drugs. Oh, let me rephrase that. It will be wonderful. The information with regard to the cause of thryroid disease was very interesting to say the least. I had no idea.
As for your digestive problem. Try Bromelain with every meal. I had the same problem there too. In fact, I have heard that disease begins in the stomach.
For seasonal allergies, I take apple cider vinegar mixed with honey. Raw of course. I used to suffer greatly from asthma, hayfever, and major sinus problems. No more. It is a thing of the past.
I hope I have helped you and thank you so much for your pointers.
Really? Yes, I could see how it would help depression. That is a good suggestion. I am about to tell you that my problem is finding the time, but I am fast learning that there are certain things that we must make the time for.
did they check you for mitral valve prolapse? that can feel like fluttering. an ekg won't find it, has to be an echocardiogram.
for the energy, do you get lots of B-12?
Protects Brain Cells and Nerve Tissue. Methylcobalamin (Methyl B12) is better absorbed and retained than other forms of B12 (such as cyanocobalamin). Methyl B12 protects nerve tissue and brain cells, and promotes better sleep. Methyl B12 is a cofactor of methionine synthase, which reduces toxic homocysteine to the essential amino acid methionine. Methylcobalamin also protects eye function against toxicity caused by excess glutamate.
