Red Dots Under And Above The Eyes

8 posts in this topic

Stupid I got into gluten yesterday, and now I've got red dots around my eyes. They're blood red...it looks like someone took a marker to me. I've got to go to a funeral and be a pall bearer (yes, a girl can be a pall bearer) and I look terrible in my face. I don't feel to hot, but, I'll be fine. I’m hoping it’ll clear up before the funeral…anyway, just wondering if I’m the only one that’s dealt with this.

I'm sorry you have to be a pall bearer... :(

I'm sorry for your loss...

That said, I get those dots, too. I normally get them when I throw up, and usually only when I have that glass-digesting pain and I'm throwing up. The first time I had them was with mono.

The dr. said they are caused by little capillaries bursting under pressure, not just with vomiting, but with coughing hard. The only thing you can do is cover them with makeup and they'll go away in a few days.

Thanks, ChelsE...I'll be okay, just take a little time. Ouch, sorry you had to go through mono, one of my friends got that once :(

Wow...that's kind of strange, I haven't throw up yet and I've gotten them twice. Happy I haven't thrown up yet though.

Do they itch and sometimes burn?

I have had considerable trouble with them. I got them the day I got glutened this week. I went to my doctors partner because my doctor is on holidays. He gave me a cream I awoke this morning my eye had swollen shut and my head ached. I just got back a half hour ago from the hospital (from having my brother drive me over at 4am). They said that whatever the problem was compounded by the cream which I am obviously allergic to, so they gave me benedryl, and ice packs and it is starting to go down. Another lost day of work.

Gee Rusla--get some rest and I hope you feel better soon--you must be exhausted! :)

Rusla- Ouch! :wacko: Take it easy there and get plently of sleep and rest. No, I haven't had any problems like that. No irration or burning whatsoever. I feel rough from being gluten and whatnot though. Anyway, take care and I hope you feel better =)

Well the time of getting up is the time I am usually going to work at, just the whole incident is not nice.

Mine itch and burn, in some ways they look like my DH but on the eye. I wonder if that is what it is as it only affects one eye.

    • Do this, scientists! (experiment to confirm/deny the existence of "leaky gut")
      Good idea! Add also the lactulose - mannitol test, to confirm they are/are not experiencing leakyness in the gut, then correlate the results with the symptoms (obviously digestive symptoms would have to be excluded, because diarrhea and bloating will probably be present anyway, due to having damaged intestines). You see, ironically it would be "gluten-free challenge", because possibly systemic symptoms ("leaky gut syndrome")  and GI symptoms start after going IV fluids -> gluten-free (instead of "gluten challenge", which would be gluten-free -> gluten).
             
    • "Pre-Celiac" & scared
      PPIs should not affect your digestion of gluten one way or another. Many folks with celiac disease may have villous damage without obvious symptoms. Others eventually get symptoms after the disease is "activated," but exactly how or why this happens is not yet clearly understood. Biopsies are generally done after someone has symptoms, and likely already has villous damage, so I would imagine your doctor must be necessarily a bit vague about whether you might have "inactive" or "active" celiac disease. The gold standard is to get a biopsy while still eating gluten, and then another after being on a gluten-free diet for some time, to assess whether you heal without gluten in your system. Positive genes and blood work, AND villous atrophy would seem like fairly strong evidence, but that's up to your doctor to determine. If you feel comfortable sharing your test results on the forum, some folks here can give you their two cents. But listen to your doctor! Glutenease might help your digestion, but if you have an autoimmune reaction to gluten, it won't prevent the possible damage that comes with gluten mistakes. Research on l-glutamine is somewhat supportive for healing, but it's not a panacea.  You will read about various levels of sensitivity and prudence here and elsewhere. Eventually you'll come up with a plan that you consider is "safe," but hopefully will still let you get out in the world. Read up on gluten-free groceries and how to deal with restaurants safely, and you ought to be able to find a happy "middle-path" between prudence and paranoia. I'm one of the fairly sensitive/paranoid types at this point in my life. I personally don't worry too much about possibly breathing in gluten, but on the other hand I wouldn't eat anything that's been out where flour is in the air. Nor would I use a shared toaster or fryer. Again, it's important that you form a lifestyle approach that is informed about the risks but still a good life! Most importantly, work with your medical team to determine if you in fact have celiac disease.
    • Second Panel has come back...advice?
      We are utilizing the "our kitchen is completely gluten free" and DEFINITELY checking every label every time methods. SO glad to hear my DGP should drop!!!! 
    • Celiac in 10 month old?
      Without reference ranges for the IgA there's no telling wether the IgA or tTG are anything worth while.  I think your best bet is to wait on a call from them for interpretation. I know that's hard but really, they are the ones with all the necessary information.  
    • Celiac in 10 month old?
      Hello all, new to this site!  My 10 month old son was referred to an endocrinologist as he has consistently failed to chart in both weight and height.  After discussing his symptoms with the endocrinologist (fussiness after eating, diarrhea) she suggested it could be Celiac disease.  She ordered several blood tests to which I have received results that I am not quite sure how to interpret (and of course I haven't heard back and she hasn't returned my messages).  The following abnormal test results I received: Immunoglobulin A:  Less than 8 mg/dl IgA TTG Antibody:  Negative (I've read this can be a false negative if he is IgA deficient?) SGOT/AST:  93 U/L (standard 25-55) SGPT/AST:  49 U/L (standard 13-45) IgF-1/Somatomedin-C:  Less than 25 ng/ml (standard for age range 16 days to 1 year is 55-327) Any insight into what these results mean would be extremely helpful and appreciated!  Also, my son has been exclusively breastfed; if he does, in fact, have Celiac disease is gluten transferred through breast milk?
