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!

    • Hello, I see you posted this a long while ago, and perhaps--I hope-- it's no longer a matter of concern, but I thought I'd mention that shortly before I was diagnosed for celiac's, I had distinct yellow blotches on the corners of my eyelids toward my nose. Some months after I had stopped eating gluten, the yellow gradually went away, and--as it just reappeared now several years later, I googled the issue again.  I am only speculating here, but I do believe it is related to liver problems, which, in turn, are related to celiac's. I don't think liver function tests cover all aspects of liver health. I say this because when I was pregnant I developed a temporary liver condition called interhepatic colestasis of pregnancy (ICP), but my liver function tests had been fine. (The condition is diagnosed based on bile levels in the blood, not on liver function). I discovered upon some research that (of course!) ICP  can be associated with celiac's disease.  My hunch is this-- that celiac's presents two problems to the liver: 1) the malabsorption of nutrients--esp. Vit. K2-- that are vital liver health; 2) since gluten registers as a toxin to the immune system (I think?), perhaps the liver gets overloaded processing so much toxic material. Or perhaps there's some other reason. At any rate, poor liver health and celiac's do seem to be linked, according to a few articles I've found. Anyway, hope your problems are resolved now.  
    • my daughter did stool test from enterolab but this gluten sensitive blood test is from http://requestatest.com/tests/search    
    • OK, was your daughter tested by a doctor or did you do one of these order online stool tests? And the same question goes for your tests. Can you give a link to the company?
    • NO. Approx. 1/3 of the population carries the genes for celiac but that does NOT mean they will ever present with celiac. Only a small percentage of them will. A gene test is really used more to rule out celiac rather than to diagnose it. What I meant was that since your daughter is diagnosed and IF you carry one or both of the celiac genes then there is a greater chance you are celiac or "early stages" especially in light of your symptoms. All 3 of those factors weighed together was what I was referring to.
    • by the way, I do find the lab who does the gluten sensitive test Gluten Allergy IgE Test This test is used to determine if a person has an allergic reaction to gluten, a protein found in wheat, barley, and rye.  Roughly 1 in 30 adults and 1 in 40 children suffer from a Gluten Allergy.  An IgE test looks for antibodies which develop in a person who has a particular allergy.  Gluten Allergy can display symptoms similar to other conditions such as Celiac Disease.  Unlike an allergy, Celiac Disease can do permanent harm to the body if left untreated.  Allergy testing when a person is experiencing symptoms can help identify or rule out an allergy as the cause.

      Gluten Allergy is typically less severe than other Gluten related conditions like Celiac Disease.  People with Gluten Allergy will often experience abdominal discomfort, bloating, gas, constipation, or diarrhea when they eat products containing gluten.  These symptoms usually stop when a person cuts gluten out of their diet.

      A Gluten Allergy IgE test can be ordered to help determine if someone allergic to gluten.  This test can also be ordered when a person is testing for Celiac Disease and has had negative results on Celiac specific antibody tests.  An allergy test can also be ordered prior to Celiac testing to rule out Gluten Allergy as a likely cause for a person’s symptoms.
