{"errors":"Exceeded API rate limit, please try again in a minute. Upgrade to a paid account to remove this limit."}

This is Rate Limit Header:
http_x_shopify_shop_api_call_limit: 1/40
x-shopify-shop-api-call-limit: 1/40

Still it shows:
{"errors":"Exceeded API rate limit, please try again in a minute. Upgrade to a paid account to remove this limit."}

Please someone help me in this issue.

I'm getting the exact same error and the support at shopify are clueless...It's a bug i guess as I only do 4 api calls in 10s which should be very far from the rate limit....
I really have no clue how to get through this, if someone knows ?
