Help! Not Sure What This Is, But Trying To Figure It Out...

10 posts in this topic

Ok, the really crappy part here is that it seems to happen only after eating at Five Guys. It's not a glutening, so I'm not sure what is going on.

If I eat at Five Guys (and I've been known to be a real ass there. The Five Guys in my neighborhood seems to be the worst of them. They have to be CONSTANTLY reminded about CC, to the point that I had them remake a burger and change their gloves. I know I'm not getting glutened for that reason, and this is just different symptoms than my glutening symptoms.

About 5 hours after I eat the burger, I get jittery. My joint begin to ache (when I'm glutened it's my entire body that aches) I'll get a bit of a headache, some heart palpitations and the most noticable of all, SWEATING. Last night for example. I had Five Guys for lunch, dealt with joint aches from about 7pm on, then I went to sleep. I was jolted awake for no reason around 2am, and the sheets had several sweat spots in them, where they were just soaked, but my body was dry. My heart wasn't racing, but it was pounding.

My first thought with all of this is MSG, but I'm not sure. I kept the burger pretty plain (ketchup, onions, green peppers and mayo, didn't have any fries). Anyone have any ideas?

Are you ok with peanuts/legumes? I know the ones I've been to fry the potatoes in peanut oil.

I am fine with peanuts/legumes, and it wouldn't matter anyways, I didn't have any fries.

Whoops, my mistake. Can't think of anything else, I'm sure you are normally ok with the things you had on the burger or you wouldn't have ordered it that way. Sometimes I get reactions that I just can't pin to any one thing. It's frustrating, I know. Hopefully someone else will chime in with other ideas. :)

I'm still thinking it's MSG. I've heard they lace the burgers with it too, but I've never been able to find a way to substantiate that claim.

Just a thought but, if everytime you eat there, you feel bad.....don't eat there? :)

I may just do that. I can't seem to narrow down the culprit. It's not every time I eat there though, that's the kicker. I guess it's going to have to be a once in a while thing.

My first thought was a possibility of MSG as well. I wonder if you could get them to put no seasoning on it if it would help? Or even call the corporate office and ask if they use MSG? Or like someone else said, don't eat there LOL. B)

I HATE the possibility of not eating there; there's not many places near me that are safe to go out and eat, so it's yet another limitation. But waking up in a sweat kinda sucks too...

Understandable. So maybe see if they put seasoning on it while it's cooking and ask them not too and see what happens? Hopefully that will solve it. B)

    • Yes!  With dairy, celiacs can often have a temorary lactose intolerance due to damaged intestinal villi (where the enzymes normally are released to digest lactose).  Of course you could be naturally lactose intolerant based on race or age.  It is best to stick to a whole foods diet while you are healing.  Really, is ice cream or potato chips going to provide you with nutritional value?  Stick with naturally gluten free foods like meat, fish, fats,  veggies (even those with carbs like sweet potatoes or winter squash) and fruit.  Avoid that processed junk as you may react to the additives right now.  Later, you can add back in dairy (test) and other foods you miss and crave.   Good luck!  
    • Take a deep breath and calm down!    The incidence of cancer with Celiac Disease is rare.......it can happen but the vast majority of people never have that experience.  You may have somewhat enlarged lymph nodes due to inflammation from undiagnosed Celiac but that will all calm down and go away once you get going on the diet.  Believe me, there are many of us that have things happen during the diagnosis and early recovery period and everything turned out just fine.  There is an elevated risk for some cancers with Celiac but that risk goes back to that of the general population after a couple of years on the gluten-free diet. I cannot remember the exact time frame but it is somewhere between 2-4 years, I think.  So many of us went years without a diagnosis and when it was all figured out, we have gone on to be healthy with little complications.  Really...do  not worry about this.  Concentrate on learning all the ins and outs of this disease and how to live gluten free happily.  We are here to help you and guess what? The diet is not as bad as some make it out to be. Many things can be made gluten free and are every bit as good as their gluten counterparts. The diet may not be convenient but it is not hard. I would not lie to you!   
    • Well....one common symptom that most celiacs have when they are diagnosed (or undiagnosed) is anxiety.  So, there is a risk of cancers, but science has demonstrated that that risk goes down on a gluten free diet (if you have celiac disease).  In goes down to the same risk as those without celiac disease.   I kind of was a basket case.  I drive my family a bit crazy because I was anxious.  I felt a bit stupid too.  I guess I had a little brain fog going on too.  All that resolved after I healed. Welcome to the fourum.  Read our Newbie 101 thread under "Coping" (pinned at the top of the page) and learn about hidden sources of gluten and cross contamination.  I think most of us do not worry about cancer. We mourn the freedom to eat anything anywhere!   I did not have swollen lymph nodes, but I am sure others have and they did not have cancer.  Hopefully, they will chime in and set your mind at ease.  If not, you can search for "lymph nodes" at the top of the page (little magnifying glass).  There are lots of members with the same issue!  
    • I was recently diagnosed as having celiac and to be honest the part I'm having the most trouble with isn't the change in food or lifestyle. I'm really upset about what I've read about the risk of cancer increasing with celiac disease. I think this is playing into my fears because I currently have lymph nodes all over my body-my Doctor says they are not considered swollen or concerning, but I don't usually feel nodes. The lymph nodes and horrible diarrhea for the last 3 weeks were what got me into the the doctor for lab work. My blood work came great so I'm wondering if anyone else experienced lymph nodes reacting when they found out they were celiac? Also how do you deal with anxiety surrounding the increased risk of cancer? Thanks!
    • Wow I'm gonna be a skinny Minnie in no time rather than a bloated and confused Thankyou I'll try look at these images 4 days gluten free
