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.

Yup, Sounds like an allergy to me too.  Here's a link providing information for a gluten challenge.

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.
