I'm Too Hot Or Too Cold, Chills, Never In Between Today!

6 posts in this topic

Ok, I've not been yet diagnosed with anything relating to celiac but I have my doc appt on Friday and will request the specific blood tests to be done. Today I can't seem to get to a normal feeling temperature. I have my legs covered up and my feet are sweating (too hot!!) but if I put my fan on I'm way too cold! I get chills and goose bumps all over if I have my fan on. I can't get comfortable and I don't know why. I did check my temperature and it's perfectly normal today (which is odd since for over a year I've had eleveated temperature in the evenings/nighttime). I'm bloated feeling and always a little gassy. I just ate ice cream about a half hour or so ago and as I type this I'm starting to get nauseated and it feels now like I'm getting more bloated which is causing the nausea. I had a sandwich about an hour or so ago (wheat bread). This is happening more and more day by day I've noticed. I tend to always eat wheat with any meal, and have for many years.

 

I have what I truly believe is DH instead of palmoplantar pustular psoriasis. (mostly same symptoms but poss caused by celiac). I've already posted a lot of my health problems in other threads I've recently started but I need to know if this temperature things is normal?! I cannot sleep without a fan directly on my head and body, otherwise I wake up soaked in sweat, even a nap during the day. Been like that for about 2 years. But today the temperature thing is out of control. My arms are cold with goose bumps but my main upper body and head feels too warm like I want the fan on. My legs are chilly and frozen yet they are too warm and my feet are sweating. Yuck! I don't know if this is somehow a new manifestation of gluten intolerance.. I tried searching this forum for "hot and cold" but the search was fruitless. I feel like I'm going to go insane! If I cover up my arms, i immediately get too hot yet my arms still feel cold. Is this considered a "neurological" symptom?

HI,

 

try searching for "night sweats". there are some threads about them.  Maybe something in one of them will help.

For years pre-diagnosis -- the only way I could describe the crazy temperature fluctuations I felt was that I had a broken thermostat -- I'm tired now -- but will re-read your post and try to give a more detailed answer in the morning.

the only way i know ive eaten "the wrong thing" is because i go absolutely freezing cold, get the chills, thankfully since ive gone gluten free i dont get the bloating any more. i hate getting wrapped up though because then im too hot!! it happened last night when i had some popcorn - think it was the soya!!!

 

it could be a gluten symptom or could be a thyroid problem -although they do tend to go hand in hand, id mention this to your doctor when you go and get them to check it out.

I don't know why this is, but I definitely experienced similar things to what you are, just not to such an extreme. Being gluten free I've experienced far fewer of these episodes. Notably, dairy seems a likely culprit for these reactions in me too.

 

What you have sounds worse than how I was though. I would described it as feeling like I was getting the flu, mildly icky all over, and getting randomly hot and cold, but of course the thermometer always showed my body temp was fine even though I felt like it wasn't.

 

Since I felt like it was flu-like in nature, and since finding out I have celiac disease, I've assumed it was a more or less regular bodily reaction to the bombardment of antibodies being produced. It's how your immune system reacts to illnesses that usually makes you feel sick, not the illness itself, (at least until an illness starts to cause serious damage.)

 

In any case, you say you eat wheat with every meal, but that's normal. And you're getting it from more sources than you probably think. For instance, your ice cream probably has wheat in it or enough traces of wheat to make you sick too, ignoring the dairy.

I ended up falling asleep and when I woke up about 2 hours later all that crazy temperature fluctuations were gone. So, I'm not sure what happened. I was so relieved when I woke up and realized it was gone. i wonder if it was from lack of sleep from the previous 2 days. I really didn't get much quality sleep during those days, had insomnia pretty bad. If I did fall asleep, I woke up very often during the time i was sleeping. But I had never experienced that kind of reaction to lack of sleep before. Thank you all for your replies. :)

    • What if it were something else that glutened you?  Maybe you ate too much of a good thing?  I once (three months post dx) ate too much gluten-free fried chicken, vomited, passed out and fractured my back (osteoporosis) in the process.  Paramedics, ER doc and Cardio all thought I was having a heart attack.   No.  It was sheer gluttony and bad bones.  Not good to overload with a damaged gut.    Maybe you did get some contaminated nuts.  Afterall, anything processed is suspect.  What might be well tolerated by some, might be too much for others.  We all have our various levels of gluten intolerance.   The old 20 parts per million is just a guideline, but science does not really know (lack of funding......doe anyone really care enough to find out?)  My hubby has been gluten-free for 15 years.  When I was first diagnosed, I tried to eat the gluten-free foods that I normally gave him.   Problem was he was healed and I was not.  Things like Xanthan Gum in commercial processed gluten-free breads make me feel like I have been glutened, but it is just (and still is) an intolerance.  So no bread for me unless I make it myself using a different gum.   Too lazy, so I do without.   so, ask your doctor if you really want to know or lay off the cashews and test them again in a month using a certified gluten-free nut.  I wish this was easier!    
    • I have intolerances to a few foods now, so I was wondering about that.. I love cashews though, and a month or two ago I was eating them all the time with no problems at all. I mean, could I really have developed an intolerance to them since then? I don't know if they're made on shared lines (it didn't say on the package so I assumed they weren't), but I'll give them a call. I'm really, really sensitive to cross contamination. Even if something is just made in the same facility (but not on shared lines) it will make me sick. If that's not it, then I'm not really sure
    • Research with KP and find a celiac-savvy GI in your area ( read the biographies). and ask your PCP/GP for a referral to that specific GI (not his buddy).  Ask the GI for the rest  of the celiac panel or proceed with an endoscopy/biopsies -- 4 to six.  Keep eating gluten daily until all testing is complete.  Document and request in writing.  Do not worry about symptoms.  There are over 300 of them and some celiacs have none!   Research all that you can about celiac disease.  The University of Chicago has a great celiac website that has testing Information etc.   Poet me know how it works out.  Hope you feel better soon!  
    • I react to both wheat and barley.  I've opted to just go completely gluten free, for the sake of simplicity and my sanity.  I don't have a diagnosis of celiac disease, but I strongly suspect it.  Unfortunately, I'm not willing to endure the misery of staying on gluten long enough to pursue further testing.  I just know I need to avoid the gluten grains, so I do.  
    • I think that we have to remember that celiacs often develop intolerances due to our  damaged guts.  Our guts do not ncessarily heal either (usually adults) for  a variety of reasons even if their symptoms improve (see links below).   Nuts are just plain hard to digest.   I can not tolerate almonds, but can handle walnuts and cashews in small amounts.  I can eat peanuts too, but resort to Peanutbutter after a Glutening as it is easier to digest (maybe I have to learn to chew better!  😀)  My nut symptoms have  nothing to do with gluten as I have purchased certified gluten-free nuts and suffered with the same symptoms.  .   https://www.verywell.com/celiac-disease-when-will-your-small-intestine-recover-562341 http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/treatment/ http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23936873 i call the manufacturer when I suspect the manufacturer is sharing the line or if I just want to know.  I bought some Black English walnuts and called the company.  Those are the only nuts they process and they do not have any flavored nuts.   if you really want to test your theory out, buy some nuts from Nuts.com (certified gluten-free).   See if you get a reaction or ask your GI to retest your antibodies (which should be done annually anyway).   I just hate to have Planters get a bum rap when you do not really know for sure.......😥
