Swollen Itchy Hands-and Swollen Wrists

4 posts in this topic

i think im goint to go insane, the only thing i ate out of sorts yesterday was a peice of ham and when i read the ingrediants (after i ate it of course) their is soy in it for flavor and the night before last (so friday night) i had a chicken breast after i ran that was also flavored with soy. now i had no reaction friday night, but yesterday after lunch my wrist started to swell up and by last night so was my hand, this morning both my hands and wrists are swollen and itchy! anyone have this type of reaction to just soy? i get hives something feirce sometimes when i accidently get "soyed" ugh this is soooo agrivating. at least with wheat/gluten i get a couple of days before all the reation kicks in, my hubby says maybe its only soy giving me the greif all these months but i doubt that.

the crazy thing is at one time in my life i was a vegetarian (i was pregnent and would get sick from it) now we get our meat from a local farmer who dosnt use antibiotics or growth hormones, so its rather funny that now it bothers me i ate tons of it when i was prego with the oldest, oh well,

anyone else get the swolled hands? and what do you do to bring it down, for the longest time my doc would give me prednisone but ug dont want any more of that ,

thanks :blink:

It may not be soy itself, but high protein. That is my experience. However, I've found a magnesium supplement very helpful for increasing nutrient absorption. This has helped with proteins, as well as carbs and fats too. The swelling doesn't usually occur unless I indulge on protein/salt rich foods.

I didn't think about swollen hands to be a symptom of food allergy. I've been gluten free since the beginning of the year. I almost always wake up with swollen hands. Sometimes worse than others, so it makes sense it had to be from what I ate. I so need to get religious about a food diary. Hope you get feeling better. Wendy

thankfully i dont get this everyday, only once in while, my health has been much better since i went gluten-free in feb, but once in a while i still get the puffy itchy hands once in a while and im sure it is related to something that i eat. i cant wait to get in to the GI and allergist may be they will have some answeres for me,

thanks

    • I already did. Thats how i found the place. Its amazing to actually go to a restraunt again.
    • This is EXACTLY what happens to me. It has twice now and both times was after both glutening episodes but once it was the day after and the other time it was a week and a half. So I'm still not sure if it's related or strange bug bites...

      Did they stop happening when she stopped being glutened? Did you decide they were definitely related? I'm really confused by this and would love to know whether to insecticide my house or....
    • Thankyou both! I was wondering if my high levels left much doubt on the diagnosis. I don't see the GI until the 15th Sep and I don't think I can stand to eat gluten in that time. If he tells me to I will do so after then. After 25 years of symptoms I don't think there is much chance of healing my bowel In a couple of weeks. I'm actually terrified of the damage they might find. But I think I will need the endo since there may be other things going on with me. So great they didn't put your son through the biopsy! Once I have a formal diagnosis I have my kids to worry about also. I can't even stand the thought of my daughter having a blood test. I think she would need to be sedated as she is so fearful and pain sensitive. My son is not yet 2 so I don't think they will test him. I'm feeling so off at the moment. I think I have some anxiety and reflux going on complicating things quite a bit.
    • My son's antibodies were 300. Based on his extremely high levels, his pediatric GI suggested genetic testing instead of the biopsy. Genetic testing can't diagnose celiac on its own but combined with such high levels, the gi dr was confident a positive genetic test would confidently diagnose celiac. He warned that biopsies are small snapshots of the intestine and can miss damage. He said this is an approach used very often in Europe but not as much in the US. What sold me on that approach was the ability to put my son directly on a gluten free diet instead of waiting three weeks for the biopsy, during which time he would continue to eat gluten and feel terrible. I'm not sure if this is more common with younger patients though (our son is two), based on the idea that he's had less time to inflict damage that would show in a biopsy? We are very happy that we immediately started the gluten free diet and chose the genetic testing. Our son got the proper diagnosis and his recent number shows a drop to 71 after only 4.5 months gluten free! Not sure if this helps. Good luck and I hope you feel better soon!
    • We have been off gluten for a while now, and symptoms return when I've allowed gluten full meals… so something still isn't sitting right with me.  Checking with her doc about seeing a pediactric GI although I'm not sure how long that will take since we live in small town America. I know she didn't get at least one of the recommended full panel tests but maybe two, can someone help clarify, or is she missing two? DGP for sure and possibly EMA? And if I understand what I'm reading in other posts that the DGP can be more accurate? Thanks Her blood panel results: Ttg ab iga <.5u/ml ttg igg <.8u/ml aga ab iga <.2 u/ml aga an igg <.7u/ml iga 61mg/dL
