One For The Ladies (Intolerance Symptom)
0

6 posts in this topic

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 am sorry that you are sick!   Unfortunately, all celiac testing requires you to be on gluten.  😔.   Testing is usually not over until you get an actual diagnosis, but it appears that you may very well have celiac disease.    Here is more information: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ http://theceliacmd.com/2015/06/six-reasons-to-test-for-celiac-disease-before-starting-a-gluten-free-diet-3/ in the meantime, you can eliminate dairy products temporarily.  It may provide some relief.  
    • Karen, the iodine test was a test for DH used in the 'olden' days. Iodine would be swabbed onto a spot and then it would be covered with a bandage. If someone had DH the iodined area would break out in lesions. I don't know how but we do know iodine can activate the antibodies. That is why some of us with DH have to avoid iodine in foods until the antibodies have cleared the dermis. OP, if you haven't been tested for celiac you should be and if you have active lesions a biopsy done next to a lesion by a DH knowledgable dermatologist may help in diagnosis.

    • What's an " iodine test"?  Haven't heard doctors doing that to diagnose DH.
    • Hello! I've just been given my blood results and told they are highly suggestive of coeliacs but will have to wait till next month to see the gastroenterologist and who knows how much longer for a biopsy. My igA, igG and tissuetrans igA were all over 250 and tissuetrans igG was the only one that was normal. These results don't mean much to me yet but I'm told they are very high. I'm now quite fearful of how much damage I've gone to myself. I've had stomach problems for 25 years (just turned 40) and have often steered clear of too much bread and pasta for how bloated it made me feel but the symptoms were always vague and inconsistent so I kept eating. I had a couple of boats of gastro in the past few months (thanks kids) which I took a lot longer than normal to recover from which looking back may have been related. Then last Friday I had a blowout with wine, cheese, crackers, pizza and chocolate cake. I'm sure I've probably had blowouts like that before but I have never felt so sick before and am still slowly recovering. This is what finally prompted me to go back to my GP after being fobbed off so many times over the years. So I guess my question and my concern is whether there is still  chance of a false positive with levels like this? I worry what else it might be if not coeliac. I'm also worried that I may have done so much damage to myself that I will have several disorders going on! I'm also still recovering from last Friday and wondering when I'm going to feel better. I've stayed off gluten and dairy since my blood result a couple of days ago but feel like I'm allergic to food in general.  Thankyou!!
