Hello. I am a 36 year old female. Back in May 2011 I was told I was Vitamin D insufficient (which explained some symptoms I was having)
After about a week of beginning to take Vitamin D, I started to get heart palpitations. They lasted all day and night for weeks. I finally made a connection so I went off of the D. Within a few days to a week, the heart palps went away. I tested this "theory" 4 different times to be sure. BTW, I have NEVER experienced heart palps in my life.
Anyway, over the last 5 months I cannot find a balance to get rid of these chronic palps. I have since been getting daily sunshine and supplementing Vitamin D and have added Magnesium....it helps, but I still get the palps EVERY day...in waves sometimes, ALL DAY. I have also experimented with Calcium and Potassium....same thing......seems to help...but then not....I really cannot find a balance here. My bloodwork shows normal levels of everything else (other than D). However, she did not run my Magnesium. So, I am not sure. But, the Mag seems to help the best...should I take more?? My general doctor knows nothing about nutrition and it was actually an Endocrinologist that wanted to check my D and diagnosed me as D deficient. But, I no longer have insurance so I cannot see her anymore.
Anyway, very frustrated and a bit frightened by these constant skips, flutters and light headedness (during episodes only) Should I see a Cardiologist? Should I be worried?? My primary general doctor DID run an ECG (?) and was normal. My BP is normal and below. Resting HR is 62, cholesterol is normal......any insight would be appreciated
