Whenever I eat any food with even small quantities of salt , I experience chest tightness, increased heart beat, pressure in the head, and anxiety. I have been having these symptoms for many years but only recently I found that it was happening because of salt.
If I eat a boiled potato nothing would happen. But if I add some salt to the potato and eat it then within minutes (5 or 10 minutes), I experience the above symptoms.
I tried regular table salt and also Redmond Real Salt but the results were same. I am going to try Himalayan salt crystals.
I get the same symptoms whenever I eat any food containing soy. I am able to avoid soy from my diet. But salt is a required mineral. I do not know what to do.
I still didn't check with a doctor because my current insurance plan does not cover much.
