How common is this? I am becoming increasingly certain that I have finally found the cause of my heart issues. I started working out in early March and as a result I started eating a lot more, mainly in the form of protein/carb shakes to meet the recommended daily calorie intake of about 3000 for building muscle, up from around 2000 before. 1.5 months later I started getting very regular PVCs and non-sustained VT episodes and ended up in hospital for a night as the docs were worried what they saw on my ecg, but was discharged the next day after a rhythm specialist analysed them. I immediately stopped my workout routine and my diet went back to normal and the palpitations improved significantly... but they are stilll here, nearly 4 months on. Which makes me wonder if some sort of damage has already been done, or something has been thrown out of balance in my digestive tract.
I do often notice bowel disturbances after i get palpitations too, and I definitely fart a lot more than I used to . Has anyone else experienced this or this its a plausible cause? I have ready about a connection with the digestive and the vagus nerve, but there's little else I can find.
