Anyone Else Get Cold Often After Eating? Help!
0

7 posts in this topic

I wanted to know if anyone else gets like I do and if they have been diagnosed with anything for this complaint?

I often get cold atleast a few times a month it happens.....usually after I eat.I havent been able to pin point what food or foods it happens with.....it just seems to happen when it wants NOT SURE of any particulars.When it does happen though Its usually occasional, usually about 2 weeks after my period,and usually within 15 to 20 minutes after eating and I get real tired.

I was On the Body Ecology Diet in the Past and dont really know all of my issues.Im trying to do much homework on my own before my appt with a new MD/ND in March.

When I tried that diet, (and it was a lot of healthy eating) I kinda felt more tired,actually exhausted.I didnt get it......I felt worse eating real healthy. :( If anyone can help me it would be greatly appreciated

I am going to see an Endocrinologist tomorrow,I dont know what it will be worth.

I had TSH for the thyroid tested and they say Its normal

Dont know what else to do

I was told (by my DH and doc) that the reason you get cold after eating is because (especially if you eat a lot) all the blood is going to your middle, to help with the digestion process, and that means less blood flow/energy in the rest of the body. I get cold after eating ALL the time!

I get cold after I eat a big meal sometimes when I'm a little tired or run down and I've eaten a really big meal. At least once a week. My problem is that when my body gets too cold, it triggers some wierd response where all the fluid in my system starts draining out, so I have to pee every 1/2 hour for the rest of the day. So I try not to let myself get too cold after a big meal! Very wierd.

TSH testing is almost useless if you get tested by a normal doc. The range of "normal" TSH levels is absolutely ridiculous. You can research that. I've known a few different people who have very talented specialists that very finely tune the TSH medication. They said that unless their thyroid medication was extremely fine tuned they say they would be "completely off" and it would not help them.

I feel your pain about getting cold after a meal. Sometimes I do and sometimes I don't. I'm not completely satisfied that it is only just the extra blood flow going to the digestive system. I think there may be more to it. I"m no expert but I think it might be a possibility that a small allergic reaction (and I have many food sensitivities that range in severity) could cause the body to exhibit the same symptoms as that of being sick. When the body is sick it is using all resources to fight the infection, and I'm thinking an autoimmune response can be the same.

I think it is very interesting the connections involved here. The Thyroid and Adrenals regulate metabolism, body temperature, and stress. The Thymus is a sight for a large percentage of the body's immune response. I'm not expert on anatomy or physiology but I've heard some say the Thyroid is just the sac that sits on top of the Thymus. I would like to find out if there is interaction with the thyroid by the thymus or vice versa in the process of metabolism or food digestion.

I know this post is older, but I have not been on the forum in some time and I just starting to reacquaint myself.

I get super cold after I eat something to which I am intolerant: gluten and dairy (and apparently oats). It is a major, systemic "allergic" response for me: bone-chilling cold accompanied by joint pain and a low grade fever. It has taken years to figure that is the first signal. It feels like I have the flu, and all I can do is get under a few blankets and try to sleep it off. It may last a few hours or all day depending on the type of exposure I have had.

My celiac tests and biopsy were negative, but I have been gluten and dairy free now for just over a year. It is now very clear that the cold symptom is directly tied to my food intolerances.

I am new to this, but I was typing similar symptoms in the search engine and it came up with these posts. It has taken some time to get to the root of my intolerance, but cows products and now gluten have been pin pointed. The symptom I experience on occasions is the feeling that my blood is cold, almost feeling it run through my body making me cold all over. It normally hit in the evening, because it take a while for what ever I have eaten to take effect. I just can't warm up at all, even when wrapped up in bed.

This is a pretty old thread, so I am going to respond.  My mother has that cold feeling that lasts for about an hour daily.  She has been diagnosed with fibromyalgia.  If you seriously think gluten could be an issue, please get tested for celiac disease.

Good Luck!

    • Newly diagnosed and totally overwhelmed
      It is overwhelming at first but step by step you will begin to find food you like - new naturally gluten free 'clean' food you have never tried before, or gluten free substitutes that taste  almost as good or just as good as the food you miss.   Someone told me one just get used to gluten free bread in the end.  But there are some on the market that are so convincing now they have even fooled my gluten eating family.   (On the subject of bread, one useful tip someone gave me early on is if one toasts gluten free bread it tastes much better.  Others may disagree but I think it does - but you will need your own gluten free toaster.... )   I am also finding that as time goes on there seems to be more and more on offer for us in the shops.  The annoying thing here in the UK is one supermarket does superb ready meals for example, another does great gluten free bread, and another sells delicious gluten free Worcestershire Sauce, but it is hard to find one that sells everything you need under one roof at times.   I don't know if it is like that where you live but if it is like this you will get wise to it and end up getting used to stocking up when the opportunity presents itself. Eating out is often challenging but after not eating out for a while when I was healing I have now found a few restaurants, and a couple are chains, that I can trust.     Lastly, it is always good to have some gluten free snacks - fruits, nuts, bars etc, at the ready when the hunger pangs strike and there is nothing there for you.  I still forget and today went to a museum with my son and had to watch him in the cafe eat his cheese and ham toastie and all I had was a cup of tea!   
    • amalgam dental fillings - remove or not?
      Yes, I meant mercury not lead, thank you for the correction. That's what happens when I stay on the computer until late at night.  The symptoms I have now resemble my gluten reaction and I know it's almost impossible that I would be getting glutened. I remember someone here mentioning that he/she had amalgam fillings removed and it helped, but that was few years back. That's why I posted it here.

      akohlman--I am exactly 1 month from being diagnosed and still going through cleaning out of all the gluten foods from my life. I have really bad Dermatitis Herpetiformis but other wise I had no reason to think I had something like Celiac Disease. That being said, I TOTALLY understand. For me... its hard to be sick and not feel sick if that makes sense.....   I'm going to make the changes. I'm going to live a gluten-free life but like you... I STILL am devastated. I'm overweight... so obviously I don't have a healthy relationship with food, LOL, so I'm DYING at the idea of never eating Pizza Hut, Chili's Pasta, Red Lobster Pasta, McDonalds, etc. I don't care what anyone says.... that is a HUGE adjustment for me and I'm still reeling from the "loss".   That being sad.... I have 3 children and a husband depending on me and I'll do all I can to lengthen my lifespan so.... Here is to new journeys.   YOU ARE NOT ALONE in your sadness!

      The way to fix food intolerance symptoms is to stop eating the food causing the symptoms.  Dark Angel is right, there are very few tests for food intolerances.  Mostly we have to test ourselves through diet experiments.  Typically an elimination diet of some sort is used.  Eliminating food groups is one way, or cutting back to just a few foods and building from there is another.  Changing your diet is the way to go.

      Hi akohlman, It is quite an adjustment.  But it isn't a bad change.  While you have to give up some foods you may also end up finding other foods you really enjoy.  And most likely you will be eating a more nutritious, healthier diet than many of your friends do. Try to stick to whole foods you cook at home for a while.  If you want to eat out you can take food with you, or spend some time on the web searching out gluten-free restaurants on your area.  But to get started learning, it is best to cook you own food.  Meat, veggies, eggs, nuts and fruit should be the main foods you eat.  Maybe dairy will work for you, maybe not. It can take months for the immune reaction to stop and your body to heal enough to absorb nutrients properly.  It is good to get your vitamin and mineral levels checked so you know which might be low.  Even a tiny crumb of gluten can make us sick.  Cross contamination is a real problem.  And since the immune reaction doesn't stop when the food leaves your body, you have to be careful what you eat/drink.  But after you have been doing the gluten-free diet a while you get used to eating different and it becomes the new normal.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
