So I used to get heart palpitations when I was younger and over weight. Long story short, I fixed my diet lost weight and they disappeared. About 7 months ago I jumped on TRT because I got my test levels measured and it was low as I suspected. Feeling amazing, strength and size has gone up. I do 250mg a week micro dose daily injections.
Anyway about a month ago out of the blue my heart palpitations started coming back randomly after not having them for years. At first I thought it might be the test but after doing tons of research and talking to friends and even going to a cardiologist and getting a full work up and telling him I was on test. He said at the amount I am taking he really doubts its the test. He also did a full workup of my heart. Ultrasound and 24 hour ekg and said he cant find any issues and that palpatations are kinda common and not to worry as long as I am not having any other symptoms which I am not.
So I have been trying to rack my brain because I know something is causing them. It dawned on me the one thing I started right around the time they came back is I started taking creatine and upon some research I have found that it can cause arrhythmia’s and palpitations in some people. I should also note that I am on Stan Efferdings Vertical diet so I already get tons of red meat and creatine. My thought is perhaps maybe I am getting too much??
My diet is spot on. I am very well hydrated, take magnesium and all my minerals as well as get adequate salt (electrolytes) so my question is would it be far fetched to think it could be the creatine? Anyone else experience anything like this?
I would love any and all advice on this. Even though the doc said they are benine and not to worry about them I know something is causing them because they appeared out of nowhere and I hate them they startle me and cause me anxiety because it feels almost like your heart is going to stop. They affect my workouts and I get nervous to really push myself .
