I ate flaxseed months ago and had heart palpitations. Now today I ate chia seeds in a recipe and now having heart flutters again. Do these cause this?

I ate flaxseed months ago and had heart palpitations.  Now today I ate chia seeds in a recipe and now having heart flutters again. Do these cause this?

It is possible you are allergic to flax and chia seeds, as palpitations can be caused by food allergies. Try these again (separately).If every time you eat them you get palpitations then avoid. ...Read more
