Accidental Glutening Affecting Sleep?

6 posts in this topic

Hello Celiacs

 

On Saturday I ate what was supposed to be a slice of gluten free birthday cake.  I now wonder if the baker thought to check the baking powder, cocoa, decorations - etc.   I certainly should have! Because Saturday night I had a nightmare.  Sunday ditto.  Both nights woke up in a cold sweat.  Monday Morning my stomach hurt, felt ill at lunch and by the evening terrible chills, no sweat, but took me two hours to get to sleep.  Slept OK but next morning D.  Then kind of OK day but last night woke up twice, hot and sweating. D again in the morning.  Chills again today. Now my legs ache.  Not sure if it is another virus or gluten. Not really looking forward to going to bed tonight.  

 

Does this sound like gluten to any of you - I mean, I'm surprised the symptoms didn't hit full force Saturday evening.  Would welcome your thoughts.

Sweats, chills, body aches?  That sounds like the flu.  Have you been running a fever?  I have had it all this past month:  flu, intestinal virus and finally a cold.  Six weeks of being ill!  I got all three, hubby and kid only two!  Lucky them!  

 

I'm finally well.  Whew!  I guess I had to make up for all the years that I avoided getting sick.

It does sound like a virus.  Either way rest and drink lots of water.

 

Hope you feel better soon :)

Thanks girls!  Almost as soon as I posted this my sister rang to say her little boy had it too - and he's not a celiac!  And we were there at the same party. Sorry to take up forum time, just goes to show how easy it is to attribute everything to gluten!

This bug is taking ages to resolve.  Still stomach cramps and night sweats, a week on.  I suddenly thought just now... I had just finished a course of  antibiotics the week before I got it, do you think the antibiotics might have taken out the "good bacteria" from my gut and that's why it's taking so long to budge?  Or do you think it's just now I'm a celiac, we get stuck with these things for far longer.  Any thoughts much appreciated.

It likely is just a bad flu bug....plenty of folks without Celiac are suffering this winter.

 

As for Celiac making it worse....if you were still ingesting gluten - maybe, but since you are now living gluten free you will be less likely to catch things as your health improves and your immune system becomes stronger.

    • Hi, No, I do not have celiac  disease. I have an ankylosing spondylitis which is an auto-immune disease provoking an inflammation of the joints. Under the advice and supervision of my doctor and the professor at the hospital I follow a gluten free & casein free diet, which is extremely successful in preventing inflammatory events. And I've been doing so, strictly, for more than 6 years. So I'm not Celiac, but I can tell you that I react strongly every time I take gluten even in small amounts. Even soya sauce, which according to this website has an almost zero dose of gluten, is a lot too much for me. Nevertheless I allow myself to eat food which has been processed in a factory which processes gluten. To conclude, I would say that when you are travelling, especially in a country where celiac disease is scarcely known, you should be twice as careful as when you're going out at home. In the end you can never guarantee that the cook has cleaned his pan after using soya sauce and so on... You can only bet

    • No!  Once you fill the tub, if you sit in it for 3 minutes or you stay for 10... It doesn't change the amount or cost of the water.  That's only relevant if you have 3 kids to cycle thru that same water.  Is your hub bathing in the same water after you? Lol  And even if you add some more hot and stay longer....well...it's much cheaper than perscription meds, vodka or a substance that is legal in a few states.     Of course this only pertains to those of use with running water.... If you make your hub haul water from the creek or well and heat it over a fire....
    • Whether it is bona fide dermatitis herpetiformis, or severe eczema or hives or what have you, we all want to know how to stop the incessant itching.  Through all my research, the solution comes down to one thing: a good long soak in the tub-- with baking soda or Epsom salts or some kind of herbal tea, followed by a rub down in thick expensive lotion.  I don't know about you, but I was brought up to "get in, get done get out."  A long soak in the bath was a frivolous luxury, and a waste of time and hot water.  So now I'm having this awful breakout from forgetting to read a label and got wheated.  And every night I've been soaking in a baking soda bath to relieve the itching and aid my recovery.  And it's been hard! (But it's been very helpful too)  It has been hard to reconcile this "frivolous luxury and waste of time" as medically necessary!  Fortunately I've had no judging, and only support from my husband, who has had a similar upbringing.  Does anyone else struggle with this?

      I have celiac disease and have been gluten-free for almost 10 years.  I am extremely sensitive to gluten, noting that I react within 15 minutes of contact and in fact the doctor suspects that there may also be an actual wheat allergy at play but have never bothered to be tested since I avoid it like the plague!  I am curious to know if anyone else reacts to flax or inulin?  My symptoms with those two are almost identical to gluten so I have to really watch for that in gluten-free breads and baking and recently discovered after the fact that flax was in the juice I was drinking. I know that people with gluten issues can have other problems as well and in fact I also avoid milk products.  Even after 10 years, and although it has become a way of life, it's still frustrating to have to read every ingredient on every label.😞
