Dear Paul
You may be sensitive to wheat and products that contain wheat which then cause a build-up of wind which presses against the heart and causes the palpitations. It may be a good idea to have a medical checkup to see: a) if you heart function is 100% and b) if you are sensitive or intolerant to wheat products - the dr will send you for tests. If you do have a wheat intolerance then we can see what changes you need to make to your diet.
Best regards
