The last few days I've had chest tightness. Partly because I have gone to gym with my friend and did some light weights... But I've also been falling asleep and waking up (nap or not) with heart feeling like it's pounding even though it's just beating a little harder. Then I have to wait a long time to sleep, probably pee some.

I feel better in the mornings. I've eaten 3 egg omelets and other egg things many days now, thanks to some generosity.

But tonight I was feeling especially awful in the chest. I decided on the off chance maybe a little extra selenium from this supplement I got 75% off on, like months ago, might help since selenium helps antioxidant situation directly with the heart.

Well I don't feel perfect, but I'm not scared of a heart attack while sleeping now. My chest isn't nearly so tight. Hormones are a bit better feeling (I judge this often on if I feel that I can be decisive and have enough testosterone to be willing to be upset and stupid stuff like my phone not loading this page, libido, stuff).

I can feel my skin better, all sorts of stuff.

I'm so sick of this expletive deleted. Just eating leaves me in a state of dieing, and it seems like some sorta f'd up puzzle so I can sleep or not feel like I am dieing. I can't express well how sick I am of being sick. It's expletive deleted. I hate it. I guess I have to take selenium.

Should I be expecting this for the rest of my life? Is this what it's like to be a warrior?

Deep blue?

80% would be on the low spectrum. Most days are 95-100%.

I like to eat spinach everyday that I can. I think beet juice is the reason my digestion has sped up. For protein I often just have a (unflavored) soy powder because it is cheap. I've had mushrooms, beans, kale, squash, cilantro, grapefruit juice, all sorts of great stuff this past week.

After stopping the consumption of the town water here, I've been getting more positive affects of anything. But the chest tightness has been a bit concerning. It's weird when my chest hurt while exercising, mostly on right side, but it got better after pushing myself a bit instead of taking it easy. But then the tightness, and getting woken up, then having selenium let me sleep. I was worried about magnesium so I ate lots of pumpkin seeds but it didn't do a lot.

When I took the selenium with grapefruit juice I could feel places all over my body kind of clear out. That's the only description I can come up with. It was like a little bit of beating feeling then relief.

Deep blue is a feature that is only available through practitioners.

Deep blue can radically change SWAMI diet recommendation.

It is important that if the deep blue options are invoked that patients are observed so that one can tell whether the diet changes are benefiting or harming the patient.



Deep Blue is also a feature that is currently under development. I believe that the setting for cardiovascular has not yet been done. So selecting "Endothial Dysfunction" in Deep Blue gets a picture of a little castle to appear on the patient's diet report. The diet report bears a comment "Your SWAMI Clinician has chosen to include the DEEP BLUE Cardiovascuar Management Artificial Intelligence formulas in your food calculations."  But food ratings are unchanged because for this section is not yet done.

I know nothing of DOS's condition, so I may be totally off base.

But chest pane can indicate things other than a person is going to have a heart attack.

For instance, some people when they are under stress will restrict the muscle in the chest.  This can certainly be to the point that they feel physical pain.  

Selenium can help reduce muscle tension.

So can can meditation. Therapy works for some. Shift in type of exercise or when you do it works for others ...

If you think that you were eminently likely to have had a heart attack recently, you should seek medical council and get this confirmed.  Then think about strategies to reduce your heart attack risk. Selenium may not be enough next time (or you might not have it handy when you need it).

DOS you should be easily able to tell if Deep Blue was used on your SWAMI by looking at the cover page of the diet report.

When Deep Blue was used the cover page of the diet report will include a picture of a chess piece like this one:

I am going to continue selenium, iodine, and vitamin A. (Lots of ketones on legs now I think)

Except tonight I couldn't fall asleep when I should have. I'm tired... Chest was pounding away, mostly on left side.

I ate some pumpkin seeds and drank some water (not local), hoping it's either magnesium or dehydration so I can sleep before I get up early. I felt good earlier but not now. I hate the ringing in my ears.

I took selenium to sleep. I'm just afraid of taking too much. Maybe 600mg is ok, 800 was the limit in one study, bu they set it at 400 anyway. But supposidly it takes thousands to be toxic. But I don't know what level makes hairloss occur.

I don't have any constipation with it and iodine.

Higher up on vitamin E today. It appears selenium isn't a magic ticket per say. My pulse felt like sludge. Took several small aspirin, hopefully that'll get me evened out and knocked out. I always sleep better with thinned out blood.

Been drinking water but feeling kinda dehydrated. Will try to keep up on protein. It's werid because early in the day I seem hydrated, then it trails off.

I feel light headed and/or tired. It's hard to tell so it's somewhat scary. My nervous system likes thinner blood, some vitamin C (almost out), I think.

Do you think it lasts longer than aspirin?

Chest pounding and ringing in ears could be magnesium deficiency.  Ever use topical magnesium?
Mag oil? If you're interested, read the book The Magnesium Miracle by Carolyn Dean, MD.  Google
magnesium oil/Mark Sircus.  Don't want to hijack your thread...but there is a super long magnesium thread on this forum.

Can you afford to see a dr. to rule out anything serious?
Also low blood sugar can cause racing heart (adrenal stress).

Remember if you go to the dr., s/he can't force you to take certain meds or whatever. But it is important to rule out a heart condition.

I can't really go to anyone.

I've been eating lots of pumpkin seeds, but yeah, I like to take magnesium in that CALM drink for sleep. Rather I've done so before and liked it.

In my drawer I found some folate, going to add it too.

But I'm still unsure why I'm so vitamin dependent.

If your gut was damaged, it is hard to predict what will and won't get absorbed from it...  I was really deficient in many things until I followed the diet for almost two years and gave the gut time to heal/rebuild the flora, etc.  I was constantly in the practitioners office to know what the body needed next to keep somewhat balanced - but needed to take handfuls of supplements daily to keep "normal" operation...

Years ago when I had this type problem, I didn't feel as if vitamins or food made the slightest bit of difference in the way I felt. It was awful. Only after I started taking probiotics for a while did I see any change. And those probiotics were not even the best ones for me, but they still helped tremendously. It always helps to note that acid reflux or hiatal hernia can cause the same pain as heart conditions. Same nerve involvement.

DOS, I noticed you mentioned lifting weights recently. That could do a number on me that would last for days. I could enjoy using weights, but I simply cannot do it. You could try sleeping elevated.... A veggie drink soothes me more than anything. It would help your hydration too. Aspirin can make the pain worse. One test that helps me know if the pain is my heart or acid reflux is to drink a veggie drink. If the drink soothes the pain, I know it is not my heart. I hope you soon get this figured out, but something as simple as lifting the weights could be the root of the problem. That pain can bring on panic attacks and other weird feelings.

if the folate helps you may need to look into methylation problems, which are fairly common. I'm dealing with them. I have to have special forms of B vit.

I assume that is an issue for me. But I'd also say other things are too.

Folate has been very good. I feel like it's fixing me, along with some stuff to support thyroid. My digestion while not 100% regular, appears to be working better. Nerves are better too, and circulation.

I wasn't heavy lifting at all. And I don't have gym access. It was only for a few days

Aspirin seems fine with me; but it takes a bunch. I've been having a few lemons while I could get them.

What a great answer, Spring.  Please tell me why aspirin could make a person feel worse --
do you mean that it can be irritating to the gut due to acidity? ...and why lifting weights could make a person feel worse too.  Is it because it's stressful or that it's not aerobic?  Curious why a veggie drink is soothing.  The minerals?  I just need to understand the whys, if you won't mind explaining.  Thanks

Thanks, Chloe! It is simply the acid of the aspirin that can cause so much pain for people who are sensitive to it. Lifting weights is one of the worst things people can do who have a tendency to have acid reflux. Especially if they have scar tissue. It can cause intense pain in the chest because of acid from the stomach being forced up into the esophagus. The pain can go up the chest into the neck and down the left arm. Also, through the chest to the back. All exactly mimicking a heart problem. I know a young man who was overweight who was scared to death that he had heart problems. He was diagnosed with acid reflux, lost fifty pounds and is one happy guy to know that his pain was not from his heart!

The veggie drink - mostly green stuff with carrots, no salt - is extremely soothing. I have never swallowed anything in my life that helped that pain as much as one of these drinks. Antacids don't even come close. I wish I knew exactly why it works so well (maybe because it is high alkaline?), but I am very glad to have discovered such a delicious, easy remedy for the pain of acid reflux. I had spent far too many years trying to deal with it. Also, I keep high alkaline veggie soup in my freezer all the time in case I have done some heavier lifting than I should.

Now it seems like my blood sugar is high every time I eat. Can't sleep, having heart beat issues. But it doesn't seem the say, like it doen't feel life threatening. But it is confusing because for a day or two I didn't have any issues, nerves and things felt great, I was hydrated etc.

It's like now that my digestion might be working I get too much carbs? I think I need some more magnesium, but I didn't get paid Saturday so all I can do is eat rice for now... Or maybe I can't take folate with food. I took some and eventually fell asleep, nerves a bit better. But I think insulin isn't normal because when I eat whey cheese then I sometimes need to nap after eating.

Quoted from DoS
Now it seems like my blood sugar is high every time I eat. Can't sleep, having heart beat issues. But it doesn't seem the say, like it doen't feel life threatening. But it is confusing because for a day or two I didn't have any issues, nerves and things felt great, I was hydrated etc.

It's like now that my digestion might be working I get too much carbs? I think I need some more magnesium, but I didn't get paid Saturday so all I can do is eat rice for now... Or maybe I can't take folate with food. I took some and eventually fell asleep, nerves a bit better. But I think insulin isn't normal because when I eat whey cheese then I sometimes need to nap after eating.

I feel sleepy after I eat cottage cheese so I try to eat it later in the day. Makes me have a good night's sleep. Too many carbs or too much salt will make my heart beat faster so I try to avoid too much at one time. I am not a big fan of salt, anyway, but sometimes food prepared by someone else has a lot more salt than I use.

DoS--I can so relate to all of your symptoms. All the way down to the ringing in the ears. 'Heart beating' discomfort sounds like adrenal fatigue to me. Believe me, adrenal fatigue can really mess with the body. I do not know your health history--your weight--your blood lipids--omega oil levels, or your family history.  That said I will stick my neck out and say that as a bystander I think it is unlikely that at your age you have a heart condition. Chest tightness is most likely to be muscle tightness. And you'd also be amazed how much tightness and pain can be caused by ribs being out of adjustment and that could so easily result from lifting weights. I am Rolfed regularly and every week my ribs need tweaking. You may know if you have loose ligaments.  If so--the ribs slip around a lot and can cause much chest discomfort.

Certainly the worry about having a heart attack/condition brings on stress that only exacerbates all the symptoms.

I have followed DrD's fatigue protocol with much success.

I hope my input helps a bit. As I read this thread my heart goes out to you as you struggle with the dis-ease your body is presenting you with right now. And to answer a question you asked earlier--no--it will not always be like this for you.  Our bodies have an inherent ability to heal themselves. You will work through this.

And never discount the benefits of meditation. It works and it's free.
