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.

      I'll keep this as short as possible, sigh. I remember having constipation all the time till i was 10 or 11 then i started getting diarrhea all the time. Ive never been able to pin my diarrhea to a certain type of food it always has been at random. Or it seemed that way. Sometimes ill have normal BMs for a couple weeks then diarrhea for a week or normal for a day or two diarrhea for a day or 2. I started getting tingly numb hands this year, i get sick all the time, i had one rash on my stomach i couldnt get rid of for years the doc said was dermatitis. So many more symptoms that line up with celiac. Heres the beef though- 7 months ago i had my first panic attack ever. I thought it was triggered by giving up chewing tobacco and the withdrawals coupled with stress at work and being a new dad but after reading about the connection between gluten im not so sure. The past 7 or 8 months have been hell. Constant anxiety, i dont get as kany panic attacks as i did in the beginning but now im suffering from depression. So, i started gluten free 2 days ago. The second day i started having horrible anxiety and a panic attack like my first one. Extremely intense.  Is that a sign that maybe i do have celiac or intolerance that coming off would make symptoms worse? I want to get tested but ive been to the ER 3 times and seen so many docs, psychiatrists and therapists trying to figure out a cause, i cant afford anymore. I dont think i can just one day bam! Have all this anxiety without a cause. Can i just do my best to stay gluten free and see what happens or is it very important to be tested? Also, will any gastro be able to test me? If i go to a gastro should i even bring up the anxiety and depression? Everytime i do i get a response similar to " its all in your head " and they just want to throw pills at me. I'm so lost to how my life got so messed up in 7 months. I need this to be the answer.

      Until he starts getting better he really needs to stick with soft, bland foods. I put a mashed potato soup recipe in the recipes area. What is healthy for a normal person isn't necessarily good for an inflamed digestive system. Anything spicy, acidic should be avoided. Fruit is acidic. I've read that pickled cabbage is good, but you couldn't pay me to eat anything pickled when I was nauseous. Things that I think would be safe are: broth mashed potato soup (the am. cheese and butter make the broth taste great) Baked potato mushy meatballs, no spices other than salt low fat vanilla ice cream with whey in the ingredient list   If these things work out try adding summer squash cooked in olive oil, add salt Summer squash tastes good in mashed potato soup.   Twice as many small meals are easier on your digestive system.   I am not a doctor or nutritionist, just been there, done that, want to help.

      I've just had a call from out GP with biopsy results. She said it confirmed celiacs and has a March 4 level. Does this sound correct?  She said she expected it given his antibodies were the highest she had ever seen.  We have an appointment on Friday for follow up. At least we know for sure now.

      Yes I got and colonskpy and endoscopy back in Oct. They said these tests were negative. However I recently found out at my new DR that notes on my tests(colonskpy ) said cronic inflammation of my intestines. I had also been eating mostly gluten free at least six months before the test. I have the gene for it and a huge amount of  symtoms so the g I dr said she could go ahead and dianose me with Celiacs or I could eat gluten for two weeks and get the colonskpy and endoscopy done again. I chose the first one and I have been feeling better since going competly gluten free. The ct scan is for them to check for cancerous tumors and possibility of Crohns just in my small intestines. She did say that I might have more than one thing going on. I didn't realize that you can't see Celiacs on a cat scan. I know that the tumors can happen with long term undiagnosed Celiacs and I'm not sure if Crohns is related as well.

      Yes, the broth helps. He wolfed some down and felt okay.  He insists he didnt eat anything from his friends. He did however gobble several gherkins last night - I checked they were gluten free but I am wondering now.  Dammit. He loves gherkins.

      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.

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!
