This May Sound Like Tmi But Whatever

So I was glutened recently, (had chili I made and froze, forgetting the chilis I put in it were not gluten free, so I rediscovered this), but I was wondering. Is it common to always have to go to the bathroom and/or feel like you are constantly wetting your pants when glutened?

I get the symptoms of cystitis or urinary tract infection when glutened. When I get a UA done it never shows bacteria but I have the sudden and constant urge to pee. I never connected it to gluten until I went gluten free and was on antibiotics for interstitial cystis for years. No longer need those but I do get that when glutened. I have read of three or four others here who do too.

But to be on the safe side, make sure you don't have a UTI that just happens to be coincidental with your glutening. Better safe than sorry.

So this has me wondering...I am just discovering that I might be gluten intolerant and am not gluten free yet. For over a year now I have had a sort of discomfort in my bladder-it feels somewhat like I am getting an infection, but not as intense and an infection has not happened in about a year now. It comes and goes. I also urinate kind of frequently and can't seem to hold a lot. Now I'm just wondering if it might be a symptom...

This was one of the many symptoms I accumulated over time... this was one of the first I had. And 6 yrs later... I am gluten sensitive. So, could be... but not necessarily.

Thank you for starting this thread! This symptom is how my hell began. Three years ago, I thought I was getting a UTI (got them all the time in college) so of course I made an appointment with my GP. He said "well I don't see any evidence of infection, but here's an antibiotic". I had no reason not to trust him. Of course, antibiotic didn't work so he gave me a "stronger" one. All the ladies know what happened after that. Because (I now know) my immune system was already compromised by the inflamation response, the two courses of antibiotics caused persistant yeast infections (have only been infection free for about a week or so at a time over the course of three years). I was diagnosed with interstial cystitis, but I KNEW that wasn't what was going on. Never would have put the two together though. Glad to know that I wasn't crazy. Been feeling much better since going gluten free - have only had a couple uncomfortable days in the two months since I went gluten free. :)

    • Hi thanks for this. The kidney function test I a few weeks ago came back normal but there was a question mark over ketones, they said it was all okay, then last week the doctor rang me as there was ketones in a urine sample and I have to repeat the test next week. I'm a bit confused if they weren't worried about the blood test.   I feel for your brother, that sounds awful what he's been through. I have started to get some pain in the leg that is permanently numb, I really hope I find some answers soon. Thanks again.
    • I haven't seen my gastroenterologist for a few years.  I was diagnosed celiac and have been gluten free for more than 5 years.  I've been having trouble again for the past 6 months or so.  I've done a full elimination diet and have come up with the culprit - eggs!   I did a search of the forum here and have found it's not uncommon for people with celiac to develop a sensitivity to eggs.     I can forego eating eating eggs but It's getting to be flu season.  I was planning on getting my flu shot today, as usual, at work.  The pre-shot questionnaire asks if I have an allergy to eggs.  As, I have never been tested, I don't know if this is really an "allergy".   I asked the nurse about it.  She said that if I do have an allergy to eggs,  it could be dangerous to get the vaccine.   So, I didn't ended up not getting the vaccine.  Anyone else in this boat.   Has anyone actually been tested for egg allergy?   Any advice as it pertains to the flu vaccine?  
    • Thanks for replying. You've been very helpful and given me some ideas of trying a few foods in small amounts. I wish I had rotated food months ago then it might not have got so bad. Thanks again and I wish you well.
    • Until my recent blood test results I've been having cinnamon and mint tea in the mornings, which seemed to have a positive effect calming the digestive system (and tastes good too!)  After the first step of diagnosis with high Iga TTg I took at look at the cinnamon sticks I make the tea with and it says "packed in a factory that may contain wheat, corn etc. etc." so that I guess would sound alarm bells for many I reckon. That said I'd imagine the way most of these herbs and spices are harvested isn't exactly gluten-free friendly yet I've seen quite a few recipes using it. How are people getting around this as I can't see any specific gluten-free certified cinnamon products out there? Really could do with my tea back P.S. I also have chamomile tea using the raw flowers which may have a similar background but seem to be less of a risk somehow?
    • If I do have to go back on gluten for a bit it'll at least be a temporary relief from the withdrawal symptoms (or at least what I hope are just withdrawal symptoms). Today's returning malady is acid reflux, something I'd thought I'd seen the back of recently. Really need that to calm down as PPIs the doctor gave before were evil medication and caused 10x more problems, possibly the worst I've ever felt whilst on those so won't be going back there! Although the scales seem to have stabilised in terms of weight loss in myself I feel like I'm wasting away at present, what with the random pulling sensations in muscles and tender head area I'm just scared for what other illnesses may be laying in wait related to the celiac genes  Think I'll head back for the ESR and CRP blood tests next week as the shoulder and temple pains are really worrying me right now, could just be the gluten intolerance but the other options are terrifying if not caught early. So much uncertainty, apart from the fact that none of this ever gets fully better (if at all)...
