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 too have heart palps, flutters, skips whatever you want to call them. Ecg shows nothing. I was told by my doctor it is due to my low iron which is due to celiac. They pretty much went away after being gluten-free. But occasionally do come back. I've actually been having them for the past 3 days. But I was glutened with really severe reaction about a week ago so not sure if its due to that. Or if iron is low right now. I am on supplements but it still goes up and down. I hear you about doctors. It seems if you don't do research yourself or ask questions they don't say or do or test for anything. 
    • For a number of years pre diagnosis I had irregular heartbeats - anything from a fluttering type thing to seemingly skipping one or more beats to rapid beats to something like a short drum riff. I had multiple ECG's which didn't find anything odd. It never did it when I was at the doctors or getting the ECG's. Sometimes it seemed to pound very hard & rapid, at these times I discovered if I just laid down flat on my back, it would restore normal rhythm almost instantly. These things happened at random whether I was at rest, sitting, standing, running or working hard. It was always short lived -- lasting only 1 to several seconds, perhaps the longest was close to a minute. I too have little faith in docs as I've had my share of being blown off, to misdiagnoses. The whole heart thing quit after I had been gluten-free for a while but if I get glutened, it returns.
    • My daughter had the HPV Vaccine last year. It was administered in three doses in April 2015, May 2015, and August 2015. Immediately after the third dose, she started having weird symptoms such has headaches, irritability, and a general feeling of being unwell (which she never had before). About three months later she started having gastro symptoms, most notably constant nausea. For several months we tried to figure out what was wrong and none of the doctors knew. After seeing many doctors and having a battery of tests, she was finally diagnosed with Celiac in August 2016. Her intestinal damage was a 3b Marsh score. No one else in our immediate or extended family has Celiac (myself and my other daughter were tested and are negative). No one else has symptoms or any indication that they could have Celiac. I feel like my daughter could have gone her whole life without being triggered and I'm feeling very guilty for making her get this controversial vaccine. I have done a lot of research and there seems to be conflicting studies regarding vaccines and autoimmune diseases. Some say there is no link, while others say there is a possible link, but it cannot be proven at this time. No one seems to know for sure what triggers Celiac...could it be vaccines? I'm wondering if anyone else feels that their Celiac Disease was triggered by a vaccine?  
    • Here is an article, albeit short, about Myocarditis and Celiac disease.  I have read before about a connection between the two and A-Fib is another one that can happen with undiagnosed Celiac. From one over-thinker to another......its the inflammation thing, along with maybe some genetic components to it.  I can't remember how long you have been gluten-free but it can take awhile for things to settle down, especially if your thyroid is wonky also.  I have Celiac and Hashi's so feel your pain, even though I have not had any cardiac involvement.  Some doctors really suck. I have a lifetime of bad with them so do not go that often, only when I have to and am leery about seeing any new ones. I am so done with that attitude of theirs. I think you need to find someone who has knowledge of Celiac and it's related conditions and who actually listens to the patient. That might be harder than finding a needle in a haystack but I wish you luck!
