Strange Sensation In Mouth
0

8 posts in this topic

<_<

I have NO idea what this is, as I've never experienced it before - but it's VERY annoying !! Last night's dinner was prepared by the other family member that is gluten sensitive. He's not *real* knowledgeable (ex: he thought spelt was a safe grain), but he does pretty darn well. I think I inadvertently got glutened though, despite both of us being careful. I had gas (so therefore, my 3 month old that I'm breastfeeding had painful gas too, and was pretty inconsolable). I also noticed pretty shortly after dinner the sensation in my mouth. The only way I can explain it is on my cheeks and around the front of my mouth near my lip (again, this is all inside my mouth), feels like there's a "coating" on it. It's not painful, but it does have a slightly grainy feeling. When I look in the mirror I don't see anything. I keep trying to rinse my mouth with water and running my tongue along where I feel it in an effort to get rid of the coating feeling, to no avail.

:huh:

Anybody ever hear of this ? What the heck IS this ??

I had a feeling like that all the while I breastfed my daughter except it also extended to the back of my throat. Eventually saw an ear, nose throat guy 'cause I was going nuts, but no one ever found anything. I still have odd 'mouth" reactions to food on occassion-(now I'm going through menopause) I think it might be hormonal. It's very weird, though. Hope it goes away for you soon!

You said "grainy". Does you mouth also feel dry? I get a very dry feeling in my mouth with certain foods that I'm intolerant to. Tapioca does this to me as well as some nuts.

No, that's the weird thing - it felt plenty moist.

The sensation has since gone away - I still have no clue what that was all about. Before it went away though, the underside of my tongue got sore - it kind of felt like the frenulum (the little string that attaches your tongue) felt swollen. I also got kind of a pimple between my right cheek and gum. I've gotten those before (have no clue what those are, either), but I just break it and it goes away.

:blink:

It's just to keep life interesting, I guess ! :lol:

The "pimple" was probably a canker sore...I get them occassionally. You may have had canker sores under your tongue too (canker sores can be like pimples, or can be open sores, or just sore spots)...considering the whole area has mucous membranes, it's not surprising it would react to foods you are sensitive to.

I've had canker sores before...I thought those always hurt ?? This wasn't painful at all.

Maybe they aren't canker sores then? I was told they were (I get those as well as the larger ulcers...and both come on quite suddenly.) I've found they don't hurt as much on the cheek as on the gums or tongue. When they pop they can be a bit more sore.

    • Oh, Trish at the GlutenFreeWatchDog tested Planter's honey roasted peanuts three years ago.  The can did not state gluten-free, but showed no gluten ingrediants (per Kraft policy).  Test result: less than 5 part per million which is pretty much gluten-free.  
    • What if it were something else that glutened you?  Maybe you ate too much of a good thing?  I once (three months post dx) ate too much gluten-free fried chicken, vomited, passed out and fractured my back (osteoporosis) in the process.  Paramedics, ER doc and Cardio all thought I was having a heart attack.   No.  It was sheer gluttony and bad bones.  Not good to overload with a damaged gut.    Maybe you did get some contaminated nuts.  Afterall, anything processed is suspect.  What might be well tolerated by some, might be too much for others.  We all have our various levels of gluten intolerance.   The old 20 parts per million is just a guideline, but science does not really know (lack of funding......doe anyone really care enough to find out?)  My hubby has been gluten-free for 15 years.  When I was first diagnosed, I tried to eat the gluten-free foods that I normally gave him.   Problem was he was healed and I was not.  Things like Xanthan Gum in commercial processed gluten-free breads make me feel like I have been glutened, but it is just (and still is) an intolerance.  So no bread for me unless I make it myself using a different gum.   Too lazy, so I do without.   so, ask your doctor if you really want to know or lay off the cashews and test them again in a month using a certified gluten-free nut.  I wish this was easier!    
    • I have intolerances to a few foods now, so I was wondering about that.. I love cashews though, and a month or two ago I was eating them all the time with no problems at all. I mean, could I really have developed an intolerance to them since then? I don't know if they're made on shared lines (it didn't say on the package so I assumed they weren't), but I'll give them a call. I'm really, really sensitive to cross contamination. Even if something is just made in the same facility (but not on shared lines) it will make me sick. If that's not it, then I'm not really sure
    • Research with KP and find a celiac-savvy GI in your area ( read the biographies). and ask your PCP/GP for a referral to that specific GI (not his buddy).  Ask the GI for the rest  of the celiac panel or proceed with an endoscopy/biopsies -- 4 to six.  Keep eating gluten daily until all testing is complete.  Document and request in writing.  Do not worry about symptoms.  There are over 300 of them and some celiacs have none!   Research all that you can about celiac disease.  The University of Chicago has a great celiac website that has testing Information etc.   Poet me know how it works out.  Hope you feel better soon!  
    • I react to both wheat and barley.  I've opted to just go completely gluten free, for the sake of simplicity and my sanity.  I don't have a diagnosis of celiac disease, but I strongly suspect it.  Unfortunately, I'm not willing to endure the misery of staying on gluten long enough to pursue further testing.  I just know I need to avoid the gluten grains, so I do.
