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.

    • Don't freak out worrying about other maladies yet. You would be absolutely amazed at the things that can/will resolve on the gluten free diet. Some take longer than others -- neurological seem to take the longest for most people but really, I guarantee, there will be things you had no idea or expectation of resolving will. There were tons for me and then there were things I sort of "woke up one day" & said, "hey, that's gone and that & that & that". Other, larger things had taken my attention so I hadn't paid attention to the smaller things until...... On the other hand, not everything is related to celiac but I bet you wouldn't find a handful of celiacs who didn't say something very similar to what I said above. Yes, thyroid problems are common with celiac but I'll also tell you there are/have been people on here who were hypothyroid before dx but after being gluten-free for a while they actually went back to normal thyroid numbers. My husband is one (yes, we both are celiac - it happens). He was on synthroid for 20 years or more. Guess what? He's not on it anymore. We've had his thyroid panel done several times since about a year gluten-free & he is no longer hypothyroid. 
    • Yes please, that'd be awesome Having a fun time trying to reply on my phone due to broken screen but will be back on tomorrow after results of doctor appointment to get to the bottom of why they've given me seemingly wrong advice re: next steps. Yup I'll admit to pity, anger, frustration and outright fear, been through the mill of emotions in this first week that's for sure. One thing before I go for that; back when I was self-diagnosing I wanted a full thyroid panel (T3, T4 etc.) and also ESR & CRP checks for vasculitis and similar maladies. Now it seems from my reading they can often follow celiac so my worry level of those has gone up a notch, more blood tests ahoy it seems? Main reason for worrying about those is the nearly constant tight / tender head I have at the moment. Top and sides of scalp. Could be the stress tensing the shoulders and occipital muscles at back of head but after the celiac diagnosis being missed I'm fearful of anything else being missed. Did anyone else have this tight head feeling at the start? Feels like the skin is being pulled inwards, sometimes goes down for a few minutes here and there and gets worse when sitting I think. I see the term "brain fog" a lot but luckily don't seem to have too much of that at present, this is more a physical sensation.
    • I don't have a lot of faith in the allergy testing naturalpaths do. I had them done, but really it wasn't very helpful. Foods that were okay on the blood work- I was still having obvious reactions to. Skin testing through an allergist didn't show up food allergies either. I agree the food elimination diet is a better way to go and doesn't cost a bunch of money. I did a whole 30 diet a while back that could have been helpful if the foods I reacted to were corn, dairy,  soy, grains and sugar- but I react to more than that.  I do need to do a major elimination diet- just haven't gotten up the willpower yet.   
    • Quick search gave too many responses to TGI Fridays but none to TGI Fridays Buns (or similar) so... I was talking with my sister-in-law (Gluten Intolerant) and she spoke highly of a pre-packaged bun from Fridays. I was hesitant but she gave me one (apparently you can buy them from the restaurant?) and I tried it. Since I'm slow to react I won't know about gluten for a bit but I can definitely say it is the closest to "real" I've had in years! Spongy, doesn't crumble while eating a sandwich and tastes good. Color me impressed! I tried to determine the manufacturer or if Fridays actually makes them but I can't locate anything worth pursuing. Anyone have information on this? Thanks in advance.
