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.

    • Do you mean something like a protein powder you could mix up?  A lot of them in the US seem to be gluten free.  Maybe just go to your local store and read all the labels?
    • Yeah I ended up allergic to corn, olives, sesame, whey, and peanuts and intolerant to dairy, soy, yeast, enzyme issues with breaking down meats, and egg yolks, along with extreme bloat with any kind of carbs/sugars in moderate amounts. And very adverse reactions to certain artificial sweeteners. So your not alone in all the other issues cropping up, it happens as our bodies adjust.  I eat a bunch of stir frys with veggies, egg whites, plenty of  avocados, and toasted and raw forms of almonds, coconut, cashews, walnuts, hemp seeds, pumpkin seeds, flax seeds, sancha inchi seeds, chia seeds, and sunflower seeds in all forms including making them into butters, spreads, and incorporating them into sauces.   Most meals are forms of soups, omelettes, and stir frys. I do the seeds and nuts on rotation same with my veggies and snack on fruits in small amounts along with some homemade baked goods I make for markets. I do suggest a rotation of foods, my dietician said I need to rotate my foods to prevent more issues, making sure I am off one one for at least 7-14 days at a time completely. I find changing up the spices and rotating my cuisine base works well. I also make puddings, and protein shakes along with nut/seed milks, and different bases and extract flavorings to get my random cravings Taken care of. Guess take what you can from this and and see how it can help you,    As to the tinging, I ended up with both B vitamin and magnesium deficiency issues, the magnesium one caused a fire like tingling in my arms, legs and back, along with muscle pain. Ended up on a doctors best powder form of it so I can dose it out right, and found epsom salt bathes helped.  
    • Hi, I've gained so much knowledge on this forum over the past few months, which I am so thankful for. I can see how much hell people are going through with this disease and it's so lovely to see how much support and advice people give to others on here. I'd like a little bit of reassurance and advice myself from anyone that can help. I've been gluten free for six months. Two weeks after going gluten free I realised I also had a problem with corn so cut out processed food. Over the following weeks and months I continually had problems with food; fruit, dairy, a lot of vegetables, nuts, soya....it's basically dwindled down to just eating potatoes (not white potatoes), cucumber, lettuce, small amounts of red onion, spring onion, sprouts and beetroot. There may be more things I could be okay with but to be honest I'm too scared to try.  Is this all normal? Am I an extreme case? I've been taking some digestive enzymes and probiotics for about six weeks, my acid reflux has dramatically decreased but I always have a lot of loud noises going on in my guts, I'm guessing this is the probiotics working.  I've lost nearly 3st in weight since this started - which I'm not complaining about as I was overweight due to thyroid problems. I've had loads of blood tests done recently, all organs are working 'great' according to my doctor, the only thing they've picked up on is ketones, I seem to be having a glucose problem, which might explain my exhaustion and weight loss. I also have permanent numbness and sometimes tingling in one of my legs and sometimes hands and one shoulder, I thought it could have vitamin B12 deficiency but that's okay according to blood tests. I would be greatful for any replies. Thanks for reading.
    • Hi everyone, I am doing job in restaurant at evening 5 to 12 during working hours no time to do a dinner. I'm thinking to make a shake but don't know the gluten free vitamin or supplement brand which one is good for me and easily available in Berlin Germany to make me fit cause last one week i feel weak. I'm 28 year old. Sincerely
    • Hey there just wanted to warn anyone that has other allergies- these crackers may not be a good choice! I'm mildly sensitive to MSG- I only react if there's a giant amount like in Chinese food or Ramen noodles, etc.  I literally have a to eat TONS of a the offending food before reacting.  Anyway, I was excited to try these Trader Joes pumpkin crackers, kept hearing about them on the radio .... and they're gluten free!  (I have Hashi's).  I ate about 3/4 of the box last night. Woke up this morning with a red itchy face and nasal congestion, headache, anxiety. Hallmark symptoms for me of high MSG intake. (It does say yeast extract on the side but it's pretty far down the list). So if you're sensitive.... stay away! Apparently these particular crackers are loaded with it.
