I hope you are safe and keeping as well as you can.
For the past few months I’ve had some stomach issues, which are hopefully calming down after starting a gluten and lactose free diet.
One of the issues I’ve had felt like a spasm or flutter in the stomach followed by a wave of light headedness and a rush of all over weakness. It only lasts for a few seconds but can happen over and over again through the day.
Today I was cutting the grass and when I finished I experienced it again but this time followed by a really hard single heart beat. Checking my pulse in my neck I could link the two together.
Flutter/spasm in the stomach followed by a pause and missed beat, followed by a really strong beat and back to normal.
This happened 5 or 6 times across maybe 2-3 minutes before it settled.
I’ve been having this feeling in my stomach for around 4 months now so glad I’ve narrowed it down to what it might be, I hope.
Reading online, dangerous I know as you can diagnose yourself as having every illness under the sun!, I read that many heart palpitations are completely benign and nothing to worry about but I am going to call my GP tomorrow I think to discuss getting it checked out.
I know heart disease can come along with PsA as a co-morbidity and I’m sure I’ve read that Enbrel can also worsen heart conditions.
Has anybody else experienced similar?
