I was glutened 2 weeks ago. Symptoms were severe.  Right after recovering I have started having hot flashes and sweats every time I eat or drink. I went through menopause over 10 years ago and haven't had hot flashes in at least 6 years.  I only get them when eating or drinking. Anybody gone through this?

27 years of misdiognoses
seziures summer of 1979 lasted 10 years had maybe a dozen in that time Dr.s never could find what was causing them blamed it on lack of sleep and maybe nutrasweet
rheumatoid arthritis May 1980
wrist joint replacement Jan 1984
fibromyalgia May 1980
insomnia since the 80's
diarrhea 1995-2000 blamed on arthritis meds
Crohn's 1998 after two operations to fix fissures caused by the diarrhea
Other symptons over the last 27 years that have been treated for symptoms not causes:
depression, anemia, constipation, tooth discoloration, tremors in hands, tingling and numbness in feet and hands, fatigue, high blood pressure due to arthritus meds, flushing in face, severe muscle pain and thinking I was going crazy thanks to Dr.'s attitudes.

After diognoses my mother tells me I have an aunt and a cousin with Celiac. Mother tested negative but thinks she is intolerant to wheat and is changing her diet.
Suspect all three of my children have it as well but still trying to convince them to go get tested.

In answer to my prayer, "Lord Please Heal My Broken Body". May 2007 Celiac antibody test positive
Matthew 7: 8 Ask and ye shall receive, Seek and ye shall find, Knock and it shall be opened unto you.

I am also post menopausal by 10 years and started having hot flashes at age 38.  I am 55 in a couple of months.  I have always had hot flashes when I eat.  I call it the food burn.

17 years of hot flashes is long enough!  :angry:


I never have done anything for them as this was the same experience my mother had.  I am still waiting for them to stop......

Yeah, I am on HRT (to build bone) and I am still getting hot flashes though not as severe. Ladies at the gym are still getting them and some are in their 80's!

I've heard that too!

I get night sweats whenever I'm glutened. I didn't have them until after I gave up gluten. A friend told me to have my hormones checked and I'm in the beginning of perimenopause (or squarely in it, the doctor started fading out...).

My friends who are in "the menopause" tell me to hang onto my hat.
