Always Hot

15 posts in this topic

I WAS WONDERING IF ANYONE ELSE FEELS HOT OR FLUSHED AFTER EATING GLUTEN. I USE TO STAY HOT ALL THE TIME. IT HAS BEEN BETTER LATELY, THAT IS UNTIL TONIGHT. I BROKE DOWN AND EAT SOME PASTA FOR DINNER AND RIGHT AWAY I FELT SO HOT AND FLUSHED AGAIN. ALSO DID NOT FINISH EATING THE PASTA, THOUGHT I WAS GOING TO THROW IT UP BEFORE I FINISHED. I USE TO EAT PASTA ABOUT EVERYDAY, WAS SICK ON STOMACH ALOT OF THE TIME AND HAD NOT CONNECTED IT TO THE PASTA. SO MUCH TO LEARN ABOUT THIS GLUTEN THING. ALSO WAS WONDERING I HAVE LOW BLOOD PRESSURE AND MY BODY TEMP. IS ALWAYS BELOW THE NORMAL MARK ( 96.2 ) NORMAL FOR ME. DO ANY OTHERS HERE HAVE THE SAME THING WITH THEIR PRESSURE AND TEMP.

One of my symptoms was feeling hot, fast, hard heart beat. It was kind of spooky.

I definately remember that while I was still eating gluten, I would get hot and nauseous after eating quite often. I used to get night sweats in my 30's. It got so that the heat was mostly in my face. My face felt hot to the touch. My blood pressure tends to run on the high side. The hot face still happens once in a while--much less now, though.

YOUR SAYING SOMETHING ABOUT THE NIGHT SWEATS JUST MADE ME THINK, I AM NOT HAVING THEM LIKE I USE TO. IT WAS SO AWFUL WAKING UP SO HOT ALL DURING THE NIGHT. IT WAS MY ENTIRE UPPER BODY THAT WOULD FEEL SO HOT AFTER EATING GLUTEN.

I tend to get flushed and very warm for hours. I also sweat a great deal, even if it's cold out, when I have gluten. Without it, I have cold hands, no sweating, and no redness to the face.

Broda Barnes MD did a lot of throid research and determined that basal body temps. are a more accurate indication of low thyroid than the current blood tests. Your temp. should be over 97.5 first thing in the morning (Dr. Barnes said 97.8, but after 7 years of teaching natural family planning, that seems high). You can pull up a lot of information on this if you do a search for Broda Barnes. I started taking thyroid from the health food store three years ago, my temps. are now normal and I have much more energy than I used to.

I also have horrible hot flashes and night sweats when I'm consuming gluten. In fact, it was a result of these that I bought a book called something like, "What Your Doctor Won't Tell You About Premenopause." In this book she brings up food allergies, and as a result I discovered my gluten problem. I would have continued on sick for years had I not read this book.

I didn't even realize that the "hot flashes" and rapid heartbeat were a symptom of Celiac until I eliminated gluten from my diet and noticed that they went away shortly thereafter.

I used to have sweating issues to beat the band. You know how Whitney Houston sweats whenever she performs? That's me. Only I couldn't even blame stage lights, crack cocaine or the demands of performing for a live audience. I'd sweat from the tiniest exertion -- walking the dogs, shopping for groceries, you name it. One of my doctors wanted to give me a prescription strength anti-perspirant but I argued that the "sweat" wasn't really the problem. I was sweating because I was always hot.

These days, it's really interesting because I actually have a normal body temperature and now that it's winter, I actually have to turn the radiators on in my apartment and wear sweaters and stuff. Plus I don't have to change my sheets everyday.

Hi, was this no matter what you ate? or only if food contained gluten?

Hi--since it was before I was on the gluten-free diet, I don't know exactly what triggered it since at that time I didn't connect it with what I ate. I suspect gluten was a cause at least, since going gluten-free helped immensely. 7 years later, I never get the hot face/skin anymore. I still run a bit on the warm side, and don't tolerate hot weather well, but it is much improved.

perhaps another way to phrase it is, did this hot feeling stop after you immediately eliminated gluten.. i.e. within a day or two... or did it take a number of weeks or longer ?

It's been a while (I made that post in 2006) but I would say it was a matter of weeks before I saw improvement and many months before it completely stopped.

It's not uncommon for the intestinal issues to clear before the neurological ones.

Hi

Gluten makes me horribly hot especially my face sweating. This can last ages especially if under stress or exercising.

Thought it was just hot flushes but happens like clockwork if I get cc'd then keeps on the rest of the day. In my own mind, it is caused by a rise in cortisol (stress to the body caused by gluten or other problem food) . Like a stressful situation can cause a hot flush. Just my impression - could be a load of rubbish :ph34r: .

Anyway, woohoo - I'm not the only one.

One of the ways I know I've eaten a problem is rapid heartbeat and big hot flush.

There have been several threads on night sweats, one is linked below. I sued to have night sweats and they didn't sopt right after going gluten-free. It took quite a while in fact. Many months for them to go away.

    • Welcome!   You were smart to think about cross contamination.  Although it is great that there are so many gluten-free options out there, in the beginning it is best to try a whole foods diet, until your son feels a bit better.  The learning curve for the gluten-free diet is steep.  It is better for you to get everything down before letting others feed him.   When I was diagnosed, my hubby had been gluten free for 12 years.  I thought I knew the drill and converted right over to those gluten-free goodies I baked him.  Turned out, like many of us, I had some food inolerances not related to gluten but as a result of gut damage.  So, additives like Xantham gum made me think I was getting glutened, but I was not.  So, again, try to stick to naturally gluten free foods that are less processed for a while.  When you do venture out, I use "find me gluten free" and read the reviews from celiacs (not a person who thinks gluten-free is a way to lose weight! )   Here are some great tips from out Newbie 101 thread:  
    • 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
