Waking Up Feeling Sick And Warm..
0

16 posts in this topic

Something is very wrong..i keep waking up ...heart rate up...feeling warm...and feeling sick...like really...for the past 3 or 4 nights. I have no idea if this is a gluten issue....that i'm getting cross contaminated somehow...or if something else is wrong. Took pulse last night...about 75 but usually just before and after sleep i'm around 60.=\ I know that's not high but....considering i haven't been feeling well either and heart attacks tend to happen around 4 am....yeah...freaking out..Anyone else have issues with falling asleep and waking up in the middle of the night nauseated?

I used to wake up sweaty every night. Went to bed ok but would get hot and start sweating during sleep. Doesn't happen anymore unless I am reacting to something in my diet.

There are some threads on night sweats. And also low grade fever.

I use to wake up a couple years ago and feel sweat on my chest but i'm not getting that. So I dunno if I would consider it night sweats. I'm very edgy because it ALWAYS happens primarily at night. I dunno why it would always happen then. The primary symptom is nausea. And discomfort but i have NO idea what could be causing this...i have nothing but gluten free foods...pretty sure i used nothing that had gluten in it...

How is your blood sugar? Those symptoms are common for me when my sugar is low.

Not sure...last time i had it checked was november and i was pretty normal. Could I be having gluten withdrawl? it's been less than a month that i've been completely free of it...and i accidentally used some facial moisturizer earlier the week that is apparently not gluten free so...who knows i guess?

Do you have any gastric distress or bloating when you awake like that?

Hypoglycemia wouldn't show on pretty much any test a doctor ran unless you were hypo at the time it was taken. The best way to tell would be to get a monitor, you can get one at Walmart for about $9 and check your sugar when you wake up feeling like that.

Achey and makes me feel nauseated. Bloating not so much...no farts or anything...but...I tend to go to the bathroom to see if that's what's causing the problem..usually very little of anything comes out.

If it was very low, something like orange juice will bring it up quickly and then you need something that will make it stay level (protein, fat and carbs). If that is the cause having a snack before bedtime like peanut butter on a rice cake will help keep your sugar level through the night.

Interesting thought....I want to try a snack before bed but...heh....terrified of having anything in my tummy before bed cause of the nausea. Oh gosh i hate this!

100% understand that, it's the same reason I just deal with the low sugar (somewhere between 40s-50s) in the mornings because I don't want that feeling in my belly at night.

Well I had dark chocolate last night about 2 hours before bed...and a small bit of rice noodles with celtic sea salt on them. Not specifically for the purpose of trying out the low blood sugar theory. I didn't wake up in the middle of the night. However one of my theories was also I was getting too warm.....yesterday my husband put the air conditioner in the window for the summer...so it could be i was a comfortable temp. I thought maybe the heat was making me wake up sick and because i'm scared of throwing up it became a cycle? I also didn't have anything overtly milk related or nightshade related. not sure if i should try adding something back today and see how i do tonight or wait another day just to be sure this wasn't a fluke. I did have pirate's booty though which has milk in it for the white cheddar flavor i believe and i did have rudi's bread which has potato starch...that safe to say it's not a nightshade or milk problem ? I just avoided milk and having potato yesterday but i still had some of their products. I'm leaning more toward either low blood sugar or the temperature changed a lot. Or maybe i had a virus and i'm just getting over it lol I dunno!

    • So far I've had no problems with gluten-free Cherrios and I've been eating them since they started producing the gluten-free line. Generally I will have some reaction to gluten if there is contamination in the product I'm eating. But I'm sure someone has gotten a bad batch or is simply very sensitive to trace amounts of gluten. It's up to each individual to decide whether you want to chance trying them. The article mentioned by squirmingitch sheds light on the problem with anything listed as gluten-free. Contamination can occur at any point in the harvest or processing, and testing may miss it. I also eat Chex, Nature's Path cereals and have tried other brands w/o any problems. I do miss gluten-free Rice Krispies, they made for a nice addition to meat loaf, shame they discontinued the item.
    • Here is another point.  My hubby went gluten-free per the poor advice of his GP and my allergist.  It worked.  A tough first year, but he got well.  Thirteen years later, I got diagnosed with celiac disease.  I was shocked!  😱.   Does he have celiac disease?  We will never know because we can not afford to have him do a challenge.  He refuses and I can not blame him.  He knows he will be very sick!   The point?  I am so lucky that we both can not have gluten.  I never worry about him making me sick or vice versa. We made the house completely gluten free for  1) our health and 2) the fact that our kid started helping in the kitchen. Kids make mistakes and I personally need a safe haven.  She wants gluten?  I buy prepackaged stuff and she takes it to school.  All parties and events at my house are gluten free.  Lots of work, but we stay healthy.  She does not have celiac disease.  When she is preparing for a celiac test,  I send her on the porch to eat cookies or bread or whatever floats her boat.  We travel in a gluten-free RV.  I have five sizes of ice chests.  We just have to be prepared for any event.   How can we live this way?   We love feeling good.
    • Freize is right, you need to think about your environment.   Based on that a study I posted for you, you will note that the patients who were diagnosed with refractory celiac disease and THOUGHT they were diet compliant found that they WERE NOT diet compliant.  How is this possible?   This is way out there, but unless you are growing all your own food, you don't really know if it is gluten free.  In the US, we do have laws to help protect our food supplies (no perfect, but a start).    I can not speak for India.  For example, what about your soy?  It can be contaminated by the farmer as it is often rotated with wheat.  Here is an article by Jane Anderson who has celiac disease.  She is very strict as she has DH (celiac rash), but she cites Trisha Thompson who tests foods for gluton contamination, The gluten-free WatchDog (like Consumer reports).  She found that soy which is naturally gluten free, but can be cross contaminated by wheat: https://www.verywell.com/is-soy-gluten-free-562371 so, start thinking about your food supply. As far as a negative TTG IGA or TTG IGG?  I test negative to both.  Only the DGP IGA has ever been elevated in my blood tests (even repeats), yet I had a Marsh Stage IIIIB on my biopsy.  Have you had a DGP IGG?  (I do not see this in your posting).   http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ These additonal celiac tests might help you feel confident that you have celiac disease and not something else that is damaging your villi.  But remember, some  folks have celiac disease even with negative blood.  I am not IGA deficient, so this is an area I have not researched.  Not to mention that some celiac researchers do not think that the celiac  antibodies tests are good for diet compliancy.   I wish I had better answers for you.  Try a grain free, whole foods diet of meats, fish, eggs, and vegetables for a while.  All food prepared by you. Who cooks your food now?  Is your home gluten free?  Cross contamination at home?  Kissing a loved one.  We had a doctor with celiac disease who was getting glutened by her little children who were consuming gluten!  
    • I won't say I will never eat out but I can't see me eating out for the foreseeable future. Even then, I will most likely only eat at a dedicated gluten free place. I am extremely sensitive to the tiniest amount of gluten and it's just not worth the risk to me. Eating out is playing Russian Roulette as far as I'm concerned and I'm not ready to play that game yet.
