Itching And Sweating After Reglutening Myself
0

8 posts in this topic

i have nit yet been diagnised with celiacs but suspected i may have it due to having many of the symptoms, i had been glutem free for about 2 weeks but the withdrawal symptoms were becoming unbearable. 30 minutes after eating gluten my withdrawl symptoms had improved but ive been very itchy, sweaty, hot, sneezing along with a runny nose.

obviously im going to go and get tested propperly in a few weeks but does this reaction suggest i have celiacs??

Sounds more like an allergy to me. If you want to be tested for Celiac, you need to continue eating gluten until all testing is finished.

Thanks for the replys guys. The itching etc only lasted for an hour or 2 just after i ate the gluten last night. today though my sinus and throat mucus problem seems to be worse than it was before i glutened myself yesterday and also the kind of hazey fatigue feeling seems to be getting worse, along with random yawning and sneezing. 

 

im going to eat gluten for a few weeks then get tested but how easy is it to get tested for allergies in the uk as my gp said they dont test for allergies on the nhs much anymore?

Hi Dan.

 

Itching, sinus, throat, yawning, sneezing...these can be caused by Histamine overload.  There is a few threads here about Histamines.  Search for MCAD / MCAS.  It's just a thought but it could fit.  Some of us have to watch our histamines.

hmmm could be, the itching was kind of a one off thing though that only came about when i reintroduced gluten that night.

 

i have been tested for most things by my doctor such as diabetes, thyroid problems plus all the other routine things but all have come back as normal. The only common thing i haven't been tested for is allergies

btw im a 18 year old male and have had all these symptoms since i was about 15/16, also i haven't really changed much in terms of puberty (no facial hair, still quite skinny etc) since ive had all this, but im not sure if that's normal for me or not.

 

i will list my symptoms incase anyone has any ideas

my symptoms are;

 

slow healing wounds

fatigue

low libido

excessive thirst

excessive phlegm/ sinus problem

excessive urination 

white spots on nails

red nose

random yawning and sneezing every now and then

cold and tingling hands and feet

forgetfulness 

poor concentration

mood swings

irritability

muscle aches

bad lower back

no morning erections 

slight gyno

diarrhea / strange stools plus i seem to go about 3 times a day.

also my testosterone levels was on the low side of normal

seem to gain fat on face and stomach easily.

Problem with a lot of your symptoms, as you know, is they could be a LOT of things.  I'm not sure where you live but going to a clinic like Mayo where they check every nook and cranny all in one place might be a good idea.  Do you have bad stretch marks on your stomach/thighs?

Im from south west england, and its proving a bit of a struggle just getting tested for allergies through the nhs. I will look into clinics etc though in my area.

 

Nope no stretch marks, im not overweight its just if i do put on weight it will go to my face or stomach which could be normal but im not sure.

    • I have the same problem. Was told it was psoriasis but no treatments worked even injections. I was daignosed celiac in may, and noticed a year ago the palm of my hand would itch intensely then get small blisters. I believe they are both dh. Have been gluten-free since diagnosis but still have issues with both areas. Thankful digestive issues cleared but would love to know how long before they clear up? I hope we both get feed back and best wishes to you!
    • Yes it most certainly could be a false negative, and I would bet you a dozen donuts that it is (gluten free, of course.   )  At the very least you can be sure it is related to gluten.  These gluten rashes take forever to clear up.  I don't know about you, but whenever I start to doubt my gluten intolerance, I just look at my skin, and the old blood stains on my sheets, and I am reassured that it's not all in my head, and I need to avoid gluten as if it were a bucket of battery acid.
    • Hello, My fiance and I are going to Singapore for our honeymoon next year and I was wondering if anyone knew any cafes/restaurants etc that have gluten-free dishes? We previously went two years ago and enjoyed ourselves so much that we definitely wanted to go back our our honeymoon. Catch is I got diagnosed as being gluten intolerant a few months ago, negative for Coeliac though. If I eat gluten I have bad nausea, bloating, diarrhea etc. Not pretty for a honeymoon :-) I am more than happy to eat fruit at breakfast and make do with steamed rice at dinner etc but if anyone has any ideas on anywhere I can safely eat that would be much appreciated. I don't care how much it costs! Also is it possible for me to bring packaged gluten-free food into Singapore from Australia? I am not sure on the rules. Thank you!!
    • Went in and talked to the manager of our pm and asked about the gluten free pizza, and he told me he can't guarantee its 100% gluten free because of the flour in the air from the other crusts being made.  I value the honesty.   The other employee also mentioned changing gloves.   I was thinking wow great, until I walked out and got to thinking about cross contamination from everyone grabbing the toppings out of the same bins and spreading the sauce with the same utensils.    My son was just diagnosed this week so we are new to the whole lifestyle.   So any help or info is greatly appreciated.    Thanks  
    • Before i was diagnosed 2 years ago i had a severe chronic itchy scalp.  It would develop minor pimple like blisters then turn in to sores from the intense scratching.  At the time the dr i saw did a punch biopsy on the original sore, it came back with a florescent pattern and micro abcessing.  i saw a dermatologist who said it was a staph infection (wasn't checking for dh) sent me home with cream and a steroid lotion, didnt work. Shortly after i was diagnosed with celiac and went back to the dermatologist.  He did a punch biopsy BUT he took it from the top of my butt cheek saying that was the most common spot for dh to manifest.  My results were negative.   my question is...   Can this be a false negative due to the punch biopsy not being taken from skin adjacent to the lesions? since being gluten free the intensity has subsided but is still there.
