Hi there, I'm not sure if that is a gluten problem or not, I'm pretty sure I have IBS and am currently waiting blood results for celiac disease but, anxiety can most definatly cause a racing heart, I used to have panic attacks in my late teens and early 20s (I'm now 37) which makes your heart race badly. One thing I did find, was eating any processed meat ie: lunch meat, McDonald's, etc, my heart races, and still does to this day but I don't eat that stuff very often cause there's always a 50/50 chance it'll cause an IBS attack! Sorry for the long reply, hope I helped a little
