ok ive had this symptom for a while now,

 

even before the doc went with the celiac tests. id been keeping a food diary and one symptom was ,i kinda felt like my labia and around my clitoris was swelling up . sorry if thats too much information. its sooooo irritating and i just cant figure out whats happening. im sure its food related coz i dont feel it all the time and its mostly at night that i notice it. i cant really describe it , i dont know if its itchy or tingly, i just know its bloody annoying. i try my best not to touch it in any way coz if i do it intensifies and drives me crazy.sometimes its dry and irritated and others its perfectly normal - god ive never paid so much attention to my nether regions lol.

just looked up the diary and the symptoms were with quorn and a soya dessert. but just had cup of coffee and a handfull of cashews and got it again.

ive tried googling it but it just mostly suggests and infection - sure its not that coz its not all the time . no discharge or smell (soz again)

 

anybody had this or any suggestions

 

dont eat quorn now- i discovered how it was made(dont know if its good or bad). and try to avoid soya just because i didnt want to find out another food i couldnt eat- if that made sense.

Honestly, if I had those symptoms and you know it isn't a yeast infection, I'd see a gynocologist. Good luck though!

What age are you?  I had symptoms that I thought were a yeast infection.  Nope!  It was low estrogen.

its interesting you bringing that up...I gave up quorn when I went gluten free about 10 wks ago (because most of the quorn products i bought contained gluten plus I realised the process of quorn!).. but I used to get swollen lymph glands under the chin, in the armpits, and in the groin after eating it ! ...suppose it couldve been a gluten reation but im highly suspicious it was the quorn.

thats odd,

 

always hated quorn but thought i needed to up my protein to try to get my weight down, so made myself eat it until i didnt mind eating it. i kept getting pains under my arms like i was gonna get an abscess but then nothing would happen.. weird ...

    • I got WELL!!
      It sounds like things are looking up for you. Happy dance, happy dance! Happy Valentines Day!
    • Help understanding test results??
      I forgot to add this...I only had one positive on the complete celiac panel.  I had a positive on the DGP IgA test, my visual endoscopy "looked fine" but my biopsies revealed a Marsh Stage IIIB (moderate to severe villi damage).  My symptom at the time was anemia.   Keep eating gluten daily until all testing is complete.  This is really important!   Hang in there!    
    • SO HUNGRY. All. The. Time.
      Over my 6 gluten-free years, I have endured this "Starving Syndrome" several times.  Actually, I have lost count.  I am 5'4" and frequently eat more than my 6'4" husband.  My weight has gone from a low of 93 lbs. to my current high of 105 lbs.  I eat as much as I possibly can.   I agree about the fats helping me to feel full.  I'm beginning to test out the "grain hypothesis" as mentioned above. It seems (feels) to me that when I go through a major healing spurt, my body just wants more food!  No idea if this is actually what is happening.  Still, I have come to look at it as a "good thing" when my body wants lots of food.  I just relax and try to give my SMART body what it wants.
    • I got WELL!!
      Update on my progress: 1.  By thorough and consistent evaluation of my food diary (every item ingested for 6 years); I've finally figured out that both dairy and nightshades cause me PAIN!  I had tried eliminating these previously; but it was no help.  I tried again anyway...and IT WORKED!!  Maybe because I'm healthier now?  Never was lactose intolerant; but BOTH these items cause me PAIN!  All over, wish-I-were-dead PAIN! 2.  Just completed 2 courses of Xifaxin.  One in November and one in February.  The first course helped some with the Buddha Belly.  This second course helped a lot!  Fingers crossed that things will only continue to improve.  (I actually think it may be helping reduce the fatigue!  But I won't mention it as I don't want to jinx it!) 3.  Added back rice.  Had been grain-free for 3 years.  Seems fine and maybe even beneficial.  I'm pursuing adding more variety to my diet.  Looking at amaranth and buckwheat.  Plan to discuss diet with nutritionist after my next GI appt.  to get tips on this.  (Had to postpone this appt. due to bad headcold--first in many years!) 4.  Plan to discuss changing levothyroxine brand at next internist appt. in a couple weeks.  Currently taking Tirosint--and love it.  But...investigating other options like Levoxyl since I may have felt better on that.  Sadly, Pfizer was NOT helpful the last 2 times I called them to discuss gluten content/contamination.  Mylan generic was VERY helpful!  Choice to be determined.  Goal is to reduce fatigue. 5.  Continuing with exercise, meditation, drawing, etc.  Paying attention to mindset and emotional calm.  Optimism is my friend. 6.  On a humorous note, my hairline continues to advance!  I always had the highest of foreheads.  Ha!  Now my hairline is moving, from all directions, closer to my eyes!  i actually have developed a widow's peak!  This is too funny.  Sixty-six years old and my hairline keeps getting thicker and more extensive!  Mother Nature toys with me! HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY to everyone!!   Remember to love yourself!
    • I got WELL!!
      Posterboy, Many, many thanks for providing such complete information.  Your efforts won't go to waste.  I will look into each item you mentioned. Not sure the iodine is an issue as I no longer have a thyroid.  And too much iodine can aggravate my intermittent rashes.  (Never was tested for DH.  Didn't see the point as I was already diagnosed with Celiac.) Thanks again!
