So for the last week or so I’ve been having some weird heart palpitations. These have happened before, but lately they’ve been happening fairly regularly throughout the course of the day. The disconcerting thing about all this is that I haven’t made any serious changes to my diet or lifestyle that would seem to present an issue. The palpitations sometimes become a pulsing in my neck, primarily on the left side.
I get 8 hours of sleep a night, I eat 4 meals a day, usually pretty balanced, I workout pretty hard 4-5 days/week, and I take a few supplements. I take green tea extract 315mg, resveratrol 125mg, a multivitamin, Loratadine 10mg (for seasonal allergies) and vitamin D-3 2000IU. I found D3 a week or so ago after reading Shugart’s article.
I figured I’d give it a try. I read up on it a bit beforehand, and I can’t seem to think that Vitamin D would have these affects on my heart. But seeing that’s the only thing I’ve added to my diet recently, it’s a suspect for sure. The palpitations sometimes become a pulsing in my neck, primarily on the left side.
So since the weird stuff has been happening, I’ve cut out all supplements - including even my allergy medication. I’ve also stopped taking protein after my workout, just as a precaution. I’d like to figure out what this is. But I have few options insurance-wise, as my Primary Care Physician is a 15 hour drive from Ohio, where I spend 8 months out of the year. Any help or advice would be appreciated. Thanks
