Heavy Breathing, Eyes Water, Clamy
0

5 posts in this topic

Sometimes if its been a while since I accidentally ate gluten, I breathe heavy for maybe 5 minutes and my eyes water. Its not an allergic reaction, almost like a minor panic attack. It isnt really a mental thing, I dont think about it, it just happens. After this happens I can have a lot of gluten the next day and it won't get this reaction again, until its been a long time. I don't know if I have full blown celiac or sensitivity. I am not allergic to wheat or anything else though. I also sometimes get a stye if Ive been glutened.

 

Do these things happen to anyone else?

Oh, I get styes.  I had never placed them in a gluten reaction category.  I would have to think about it.

Hi Buckwheat

Gluten alters my breathing - kind of heavy as if slightly laboured, not getting enough oxygen, sort of thing.

Also makes my heart beat heavily.

I know what you mean about it feeling like a panic attack, but it is in fact a gluten reaction - I think it is my body becoming stressed by gluten arriving in the system! I get it now with a hint of cc, so very sensitive. Pre - glutenfree it was all the time and was just how I was, if you see what I mean :( .

Have never had a stye, fortunately.

You mention in your title clammy (?) - is this as in hot?

Anyway, gluten (especially) but also other food intolerances give me a hot flush within a few minutes.

I guess that this too is a stress reaction to the food and I imagine it is caused by a rise in cortisol (stress) giving a hot flush.

I'm not diagnosed, but I experience the same thing - heavy breathing, yawning, my body acting like I just cannot get enough oxygen. Because I yawn so much in this attacks, my eyes water like mad. 

 

Never associated it with gluten, I was considering it might be related to salt intake.

    • To answer some of your questions.... Non celiac gluten sensitivity does not cause any damage to the small intestine so that is not the source of the "little holes or bumps".  You need to get her records including the report of the endoscopy to see exactly what it says as well as the pathology report of the biopsies. You should always get medical records anyway & keep a copy for yourself. How many biopsies did he take? There should be a minimum of 4, ideally 6. The small intestine is very vast even in a small child. An adults is the size of a tennis court! That's a whole lot of territory so biopsies can miss damage especially when enough of them are not taken! She has 2 positives on the serum panel. This crap about "weak" positives should be thrown out of the nomenclature! A positive is a positive, weak or not! Her DgP IGG is way over the range and extremely telling. As far as my knowledge goes, there is nothing else that causes a positive DgP IGG other than celiac disease. False positives are really rare and to have 2 false positives would be astronomically rare! You are right & smart that she really does need an official diagnosis! IMHO, keep her on gluten for right now. Get a second opinion pronto & I believe you'll be able to get her a dx based on the 4 out of 5 rule if nothing else. I wouldn't think it's going to take more than a month to get to see another doc for a second opinion. Then you can take her off gluten. Kids heal up really fast, way faster than us old geezers! I'm sure as others  wake up & get on their computers they will be along to voice their knowledge. I am in the eastern time zone & rise before the birds so I was on here early. Hang in there mom! You're doing the right thing!
    • Is coffee glutem free or not ?  Always wondered about this ............. got to have my coffee... I am new to this  , very new .........
    • Now that my initial rage has calmed a tad.... your daughter has to fulfill 4 out of 5 of the diagnostic criteria. Second opinion can do a gene test. If positive, then she will have4 out of 5 of the dx criteria to dx without a positive biopsy. See: http://www.gastro.org/news_items/a-biopsy-should-not-be-required-to-make-the-diagnosis which says in part: The presence of signs and symptoms compatible with celiac disease. Positive serology screening (high serum levels of anti-TTG and/or EMA). Presence of the predisposing genes HLA-DQ2 and/or –DQ8. Histological evidence of auto-insult of jejunal mucosa typical of celiac disease. Resolution of the symptoms and normalization of serology test following the implementation of a gluten-free diet.   Also see: http://www.tenderfoodie.com/blog/2014/5/1/dr-fasano-on-new-gut-autoimmune-research-autism-clearing-up.html She can get a dx after her symptoms resolve on a gluten-free diet!
    • OMG!!!! The doc wants her to get sicker & sicker & do further damage so he can diagnose her? Don't do me any favors doc!!! I'm so spitting med right now I can't even speak! Find a new doc, take the records & get a second opinion. Maybe the next doc will have a freaking brain & dx your daughter. She should be dx'd! This is absurd in the extreme. The very least that should happen is the doc give her a dx now & then in a year or 2 have her do a gluten challenge & do a biopsy all over again but seriously, that would be just as cruel as what he's doing now. He's an ASS!
