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!

    • Yes like a protein powder. I visit a local store there is so many brands and on every brand have write gluten free.that's way I confused which one is best any suggestions ! 
    • Do you mean something like a protein powder you could mix up?  A lot of them in the US seem to be gluten free.  Maybe just go to your local store and read all the labels?
    • Yeah I ended up allergic to corn, olives, sesame, whey, and peanuts and intolerant to dairy, soy, yeast, enzyme issues with breaking down meats, and egg yolks, along with extreme bloat with any kind of carbs/sugars in moderate amounts. And very adverse reactions to certain artificial sweeteners. So your not alone in all the other issues cropping up, it happens as our bodies adjust.  I eat a bunch of stir frys with veggies, egg whites, plenty of  avocados, and toasted and raw forms of almonds, coconut, cashews, walnuts, hemp seeds, pumpkin seeds, flax seeds, sancha inchi seeds, chia seeds, and sunflower seeds in all forms including making them into butters, spreads, and incorporating them into sauces.   Most meals are forms of soups, omelettes, and stir frys. I do the seeds and nuts on rotation same with my veggies and snack on fruits in small amounts along with some homemade baked goods I make for markets. I do suggest a rotation of foods, my dietician said I need to rotate my foods to prevent more issues, making sure I am off one one for at least 7-14 days at a time completely. I find changing up the spices and rotating my cuisine base works well. I also make puddings, and protein shakes along with nut/seed milks, and different bases and extract flavorings to get my random cravings Taken care of. Guess take what you can from this and and see how it can help you,    As to the tinging, I ended up with both B vitamin and magnesium deficiency issues, the magnesium one caused a fire like tingling in my arms, legs and back, along with muscle pain. Ended up on a doctors best powder form of it so I can dose it out right, and found epsom salt bathes helped.

    • Hi, I've gained so much knowledge on this forum over the past few months, which I am so thankful for. I can see how much hell people are going through with this disease and it's so lovely to see how much support and advice people give to others on here. I'd like a little bit of reassurance and advice myself from anyone that can help. I've been gluten free for six months. Two weeks after going gluten free I realised I also had a problem with corn so cut out processed food. Over the following weeks and months I continually had problems with food; fruit, dairy, a lot of vegetables, nuts, soya....it's basically dwindled down to just eating potatoes (not white potatoes), cucumber, lettuce, small amounts of red onion, spring onion, sprouts and beetroot. There may be more things I could be okay with but to be honest I'm too scared to try.  Is this all normal? Am I an extreme case? I've been taking some digestive enzymes and probiotics for about six weeks, my acid reflux has dramatically decreased but I always have a lot of loud noises going on in my guts, I'm guessing this is the probiotics working.  I've lost nearly 3st in weight since this started - which I'm not complaining about as I was overweight due to thyroid problems. I've had loads of blood tests done recently, all organs are working 'great' according to my doctor, the only thing they've picked up on is ketones, I seem to be having a glucose problem, which might explain my exhaustion and weight loss. I also have permanent numbness and sometimes tingling in one of my legs and sometimes hands and one shoulder, I thought it could have vitamin B12 deficiency but that's okay according to blood tests. I would be greatful for any replies. Thanks for reading.
