What causes heart palpitations and burning sensation all over the body?
Most likely chinese restaurant syndrome (due to high MSG foods)
Thank you for asking HCM.
I have gone through your query. Your problem can be most likely chinese restaurant syndrome. This is due to consumption of food containing MSG (monosodium glutamate). Avoid MSG containing foods in future. Japanese foods contain Soy sauce which has high MSG.
This usually get resolved after sometime. But if symptoms are more troublesome then approach ER. In such case ECG should be taken and vitals should be checked.
Your cholesterol level is very high. Thyroid profile test should be done to rule out hypothyroidism. Hypothyroidism also causes high cholesterol levels. If it is that then thyroxine substitution will help to normalize this. If that is normal then diet , exercise and lipid lowering drugs like statins should be taken.
Hope this may help you. Let me know if anything not clear.
Thank you for your follow up query.
If you have food on saturday from restaurant then most likely not related to that. High cholesterol can give cardiac problems dysrhythmias or block. So better to have an ECG to rule out that. Blood pressure should be measured also.
If you can't tolerate with statins (crestor) then cholesterol lowering drugs like ezetimibe can be can be considered. This doesn't have such side effects. Diet and exercise usually won't be effective for a cholesterol level like yours. Taking oily fishes like sardines and mackeral is good also.
Let me know if anything not clear.
I am happy to help you.
