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!

    • It starts as a piercing itch and the skin turns reddish with a few tiny red bumps. Then tiny watery vesicles appear and itch like crazy. The whole process from start to finish is about 3 weeks and the lesions leave a purplish skin tone and scab. I get them on the back side of both knees near the bend.  Sometimes it's just a few scattered vesicles in the same area. I've had Drs say eczema or herpes. My next step is to find a dermatologist familiar with dh. Thanks for the input.
    • DH can look like that but other things can as well. It would help if you described the way it acts/presents. You can get a dh biopsy. Read threads in this section to find out how the biopsy is done correctly. 
    • my celiac was triggered by pregnancy.  had no clue.  symptoms creeped up (started with indigestion, deemed as 'colitis' or 'ibs') but eventually all the ones you mentioned above all joined the party.  sounds like you are headed in the right direction.  one of the points of diagnosis is the reaction to the gluten-free diet.  keep digging.  half the people on here don't have a firm diagnosis (science really needs to catch up with this disease)  and a false negative blood test is fairly common, for whatever reason - if you've not been eating gluten every day for like 8 weeks, it may not detect antibodies, which is what these tests are measuring.  sorry you're having this dilemma!  hope you find some answers.
    • tom & chee!  good to know   they grill the sandwich on a separate pan?  or do you just order soup and salad.  so cool to find more places to eat out!!
    • Hi everybody,  I have had symptoms of Celiac since mid pregnancy and they have gotten worse over the last 5 months post partum. I have constipation, periods stopped, extreme fatigue,  joint pain, weak muscles, dizzyness, migraines, light sensitivity,  pins and needles in hands and feet, elevated TSH, depreason and anxiety. Was put on thyroid meds but it didn't help any of my symptoms. My doctor told me to try gluten free and reintroduce it. I tried it for 2 weeks and started feeling quite a bit better, then reintroduced it and felt worse than ever! It's definitely a gluten problem. She suggested I get the Celiac panel run so I got tested for Ttg iga, DGP igg and EMA all came back NEGATIVE! by this point I had only reintroduced gluten for a few days. She said my antibodies shouldn't go down by much in this time frame. Should I push for a referral to a GI doctor? I don't know why I feel the need for diagnosis? Probably my mother in law laughing when I said I can't eat gluten anymore and she tried to offer me things like donuts, saying it's just a little.  She just doesn't get it. So now, do I suffer for 6 weeks to get the biopsy or just stop eating gluten and be done with it.  I have also noticed while introducing new foods to my baby that he throws up whenever I give him anything wheat based. I doubt they can diagnose a baby and I refuse to damage his intestines for a diagnosis.  Maybe I should get my daughter tested as well? She is 3 and has been complaining of upset tummy and is frequently constipated. She is growing well though but is also quite thin. She is not a big eater. She may be constipated because she holds it. She is afraid to poop on the potty. Since I have had symptoms for only about 10 months, could there not be much damage yet? Sorry for the long post!
