Hi, I was wondering if any one else wakes up with a swollen/puffy face after being glutened. I have noticed this happening everytime I have contact with gluten :( along with all the usual happenings after being glutened.-Jenny

This happens to my eyes only - sure way to tell when I've ingested something I shoudn't have. For me this also includes nuts, dairy, soy, and unorganic peanuts - go figure!!!

My head usually looks AND feels like one of those balloons in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade. LOL! Literally, I feel like I have a head cold.

When this happens, glass after glass of water is your best cure. I typically don't add ice as it's easier for me to guzzle when it's not too cold.

Knock on wood... I haven't had that experience in months.

Hi Jenny!

Yes, absolutely you can get a puffy face from being glutened (and other puffy stuff!) I went to a wedding a few weeks ago and spent the better part of it accidentally glutening myself despite my best efforts. Now their are all these family pictures of me looking like a whale floating around on facebook! My tummy is all big...I totally wore the wrong dress for how big my tummy was....I think I thought it had gone down quite a bit, and it had, but it was still big... ugh! Anyway, when you get puffy, ride it out. Hydrate, eat clean etc... And STAY AWAY from CAMERAS! LOL. The last thing you want it your glutened puffy face and body immortalized on film! :ph34r:

I am SO happy I came across your post. I am 26 y/o and have been waking up with a very puffy face/swollen eyelids since I was about 16. It has always bothered me SO much. In April, I found out that I have Celiac Disease. I have started a gluten-free diet, and my puffy eyes/face in the morning (puffy is an understatement, they are so swollen) has drastically improved. Some days they are almost gone. But, it feels like every time I go out to dinner, I wake up with a swollen face/eyes again and start the process all over again. How long does it take for your morning swelling to go away after being glutened? I feel like it takes me about 2 weeks, not sure if thats normal, but I am new at all of this. Thank you for your post. It helps to know other people have the same issues. Do you think the swelling will ever stop completely? Has it for anyone else? Thank again!

I get puffy eyes, not so much face.

It's really weird too because sometimes it's so severe that it feel like my eyelid gets "stuck" to my eye brow area. LOL

But yes, I get puffy eyes, and some tingling in my face.

I get puffy eyes from traces of gluten and from soy.

It is the way I know for sure something wrong got into me.

I hate that symptom.

vitaminc deficiencies can also cause it.

-But I would say yes to glutened body equals puffy face...and sometimes feet. Lasts way too long for me...several days to weeks.
