Sweating One Minute, And Freezing The Next....
0

5 posts in this topic

Hello Friends!

I don't know if this is Celiac related... but lately, every morning, like clockwork, I get out of the shower and begin getting dressed, and my body goes all whacky on me!?!? I start sweating for no good reason. So I'll turn on our large standing fan to cool off and within a few minutes, I'll still be sweating, but then I'm freezing cold. I always have to lie down and relax for a while, and it seems to pass after about a half hour or so...It's so weird! It's almost like when you have a fever...you know? Or when a fever "breaks" as my Mom used to say.... for all I know I'm in early menopause at 35...my period is 3 weeks late and I have had my tubes ties for 12 years...also weird. LOL!

I just thought I would throw it out there and see if anyone has heard of this before. I feel like my internal temp gauge is broken. I am so thankful this is happening over the summer, while I am not in school. (I'm a teacher.) But I'm really worried if this continues, because I don't want to be standing in front of my first period class of teenagers sweating like a pig and feeling like crap every morning! I am seeing my regular doctor tomorrow, and I'm planning on asking him, but sometimes I think he just blows me off because he doesn't know the answer and/or thinks I'm a hypochondriac! I'm going tomorrow to actually tell him how great I'm feeling, in general, since going gluten free, and to ask for a few of my medication to be lowered and or discontinued. But now I have this weird monkey wrench in my otherwise miraculous recovery... :(

Thanks for reading ladies and gents!

I went through that a lot about 6 months into the gluten-free diet and then it lessened a bit. It's still happens but now and then. I never figured it out. Maybe someone else will have more insight. I agree it's super uncomfortable and inconvenient.

edited to add: LauraBeth brings up a good point about hormones. I too figured my hormones were out of whack and had them tested twice. Totally normal.

I am exactly the same way, and I'm only 23 so I know it's not menopause! Could be hormonal though. I wonder if it's related to gluten at all.

It's summertime and warm to start with. I wonder if your shower is too warm and you are just overheating yourself a little. Have you tried a cooler shower?

You know what's funny....my bf said the same thing! He said, "try a cooler shower" and "try to time it so if you have to lay down for a half hour in the AM, you can." I used his advice this AM, and it worked. Sure enough, I had the weird sweating thing again, but I just plopped myself on the bed and chilled until it was time to go. I stopped sweating and left the house feeling confident!

Moral of the story, I have no idea what is happening, and neither does my doctor. He is thinking it might be one of the meds I'm on, so he is changing my dose, but other than that he had no ideas. I'll either wait it out or overcome it! Thanks for all the advice!

    • So I've been glutened....
      Hi JMG, Since it's easy, and always fun, I'd blame your sister. That's what I do.  But seriously, If it's an ongoing problem, rather than an isolated incident stick with your first guess.  Then test it.   So get rid of the oat bread or the sister (her food) or anything that is a consistent part of your diet and you suspect could be the problem.  Of course processed foods are the most likely issue always. It's easy enough to drop back to a very few foods for a few days and see if things improve.  Eating with celiac isn't about having the most exciting diet, it's about eating a medically safe diet.  So it can be boring sometimes.  That's ok, being in pain is exciting but not so fun.   Boring is fine. You might ask your sister what brands of flour she used, and other ingredients.  Then check on those products for possible gluten issues.  If they turn out to be possible problems, make a note of it so you can avoid them in the future. My own sister has been gluten-free for years but she has made me sick several times with her "creations".  It really is best to trust your own cooking and nobody else's for at least 6 months as you are getting used to the diet and healing.  Then slowly branch out and add things in maybe 1 new item in a week.  Slow and controlled diet changes are the way to go.  Boring but safe.  Happy but slow.

      Jmg I am sorry to hear you are unwell. You have been so kind and helpful to me on the boards here. You deserve the time to rant too.   Everyone's suggestion of probiotic is helpful. I have taken them since the 1990's in spurts as needed but was told by my DC after this March glutening I should take it daily "for life". My local store ran out, (I buy the type that must be refrigerated so the manufacturer does not ship direct to customer.) I was ok first day without it but by day 3 I knew I had to locate some for the probiotic/ enzyme blend was necessary for me. I have still not healed well enough yet to be without. As others said it could be cc from sis or the food  industry. Within the food industry even with parameters in place errors can be made- hopefully not too often.  Often rare though especially if not designated facility.  It is hard to know some days what it was. I do hope you get better soon. Yes I do think it can affect the brain/mood. Happens to me a large amount can be immediately,  but a smaller amount by day 2 after glutening. I want to ban gluten everywhere in my environments, unrealistic I know,  but have only been able to do that at home.  Be kind and patient with yourself at this time as you would tell me. ((((((Hug)))))

      Yeah I did all the bone broths and sauerkraut after my challenge. Although I wasn't very good at making sauerkraut... Its summer here now so I've eased up on the bone boiling, plus my local butcher is struggling to obtain them. As you say healing to the point where microscopic cross contamination doesn't get you would be a big win.  I was ok with coffee until last few days. I drank decaff black and would have several cups a day without issue. I'll be gutted if I can't handle it any more. I hadn't realised you could get gluten-free miso soup. Will have to look for that    
    • So I've been glutened....
      Coffee is a no-no for me!  I actually gave up coffee since my diagnosis back on 2/2016.  I was diagnosed by a biopsy in the stomach...no villi.   Coffee is a stimulant to the GI system and it really irritates your GI when you are having a flare up.  I was tested by stools and was informed I barely had good bacteria in my gut which is typically for people with celiac. I went on a high dose of probiotic (just started) twice a day, multivitamin, lots of fermented vegetables like sauerkraut, kimchi, miso soup and tons of bone broth.  I am going to a local farm today to pick up organic bones to make my broth.  I am so desperate to heal my gut, not to introduce gluten but to be able to tolerate an exposure without being knocked out by it....Eat very light, I stick to vegetable juice, resistance starch food such as banana, apples, potatoes boiled until my diarrhea subsides.  I am currently in a flare up stage; did something and I have been glutened I am on day 7 and my symptoms peak after a few days, around day 4-5 and it last a few days of Diarrhea, nausea, sensation of feeling full, back pain in the rib cage on left side and hip/lower back pain on left side.  Its horrible!  I feel weak right now due to the diarrhea and since I am not hungry it makes it worse.  Hope this gets better.
    • DNA Testing
      I got the print out and took it to my new dr because what my RA was saying didn't seem to add up.  When I pressed him for more info, he said I didn't have any of the markers. Turns out he read the test wrong!  Since then, my new doc also questioned all my previous bloodwork and asked why I hadn't been told that my counts were really low or tested for ferritin levels. My ferritin was at 10, so, yeah, 4 other Dr's missed anemia on my labs. It's been frustrating to say the least, but I am finally feeling a little bit hopeful with my new primary doc. She's just referred me to a specialist focusing on celiac. Considering my former gp told me "that whole celiac thing is just a fad", I'm feeling a bit more secure.

      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.
      https://youtu.be/IU6jVEwpjnE Thank You,
