Mouth Burning From Food Allergies?
0

9 posts in this topic

I have a question for those of you with multiple allergies out there....

I work at a health food store and mostly help out new celiacs when i can with learning about the right food choices, reading labels, etc. This customer came in today and said his symptoms include mouth burning, hot/cold chills, skin rash (looks like DH to me) and gastric symptoms such as getting ill after eating, constipation and then loose stools. He said he has been tested for common food allergies and non have thrown any red flags. To me this sounds like a food allergy/sensitivity. My question for those with multiple allergies is have any of you ever had the mouth burning sensation. All the other symptoms match my symptoms and my sister's(who is also celiac) except for the burning sensation. and this just struck me as strange. any input is appreciated as i have no idea about this and even though i will probably not see this customer again, it definitely has me curious

How interesting that this comes up--- My daughter's 5th grade teacher had something called oral allergy syndrome and her mouth would burn when she ate raw fruits and vegetables. Cooked--fine. Raw--bad news.

A friend of mine has oral allergies to fresh fruits. She opted to go with allergy shots and has gotten much better.

wow do you think it could have something to do with the things they use when growing frush fruits and veggies? like pesticides or something? that is something i have never heard of. i never would have thought of that

I've definitely have had an oral irritation to gluten. The glands under my tongue get this "pins and needles" kind of pain that drives me nuts.

One of my Celiac symptoms was feelings of burning--in my mouth, on the soles of my feet, and at times I felt like my face was literally on fire. My skin would get hot to the touch--but not red. This was not a result of a fever--it would happen randomly.

After I went gluten-free, it subsided and hasn't happened in years now. It took probably a year-18 months to go completely away.

Yes, I have Celiac, and Burning Mouth Syndrome.. I'm starting to notice that maybe they walk hand in hand.. I only started the Gluten Free Diet 3 days ago, but my burning mouth is better already.. :)

    • 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  
    • I was tested for the full panel, I believe. I had normal values for t-transglutaminase (ttg) igg,t-transglutaminase (ttg) iga, deamidated gliadin abs igg, deamidated gliadin abs iga, and immunoglobulin a qn serum.
