Gluten Neuropathy

4 posts in this topic

Having been tested I am not celiac, but I have a severe intolerance to wheat and a moderate reaction to gluten/glaiden

So I am having so much trouble finding ANYONE who can relate.

When I have wheat/gluten I get the oddest symptoms 24-36 hours later.

Please tell me someone can relate!!!! Please!

  • dizzy!!!!
  • left leg just gets numbish - I present as normal but it's so aggravating
  • back ache/stiff joints
  • fatigue/no get up and go

Side vent: I went to this other natural dr. who thought it was all bogus and gave me these supplment with other sensitivites I tested positive, INCLUDING a B complex with wheat germ. Needless to say, I don't take those anymore, but it just bugs me how people just stare at me like I'm making these symptom up. Some restaraunts are so cold hearted. I was left with nothing to eat but iceberg lettuce, broccoli & onions the other day. I was nearly in tears because I didn't bring any food w/me.

One of my friends gave up gluten as she gets extremely achy and stiff from eating it, so you're not alone.

Side vent - always think with your own head about anything you ingest!

I'm with ya, my doctor tells me im not Celiac, and does not believe I have a gluten issue yet all of my problems whent away when I whent gluten-free, casin free. Anyhow if I hapen to get CC everything comes back for about three days, the joint pain, dizziness, confusion, weakness, depression , constipation, insomnia and yes the leg problems, it feels like worms are crawling thought my leg muscles. Migraines and neck stiffness also becomes a problem. I tell people it's like having the worst flu ever for about 3 days. The confusion and lack of ambition sucks its like losing 100pts of IQ for a few days, I get nothing done, I just stare off into space for long periods of time when I should be working. So Your not alone!

Celiac can be very hard to diagnose I had been sick for 5+ years. I didn't present with the usual symptoms so no one picked up on it. I have been scoped but the G.I. wasn't looking very hard and was looking for something SO out of the ordinary it didn't return any results. After being in and out of the hospital for much of last year I was desperate and went gluten free. It saved my life. My stomach symptoms are stomach pain and constipation. And those symptoms are the easiest ones to deal with. My doctor diagnosed me celiac because of my inability to maintain vitamin levels and off of symptoms. I get HORRIBLE brain fog, sadness, fast heart rate, and achey muscles when I have had any gluten or even have been cross contaminated. It doesn't matter what they call it, the diagnosis is the same. Have your vitamin levels been checked?

    • Acne are not itchy or only mildly itchy and they look like red bumps with or without white centers. The bumps are quite separated from each other. What did you start to eat after going gluten-free? More fruits and sugary foods? This can trigger acne.  http://www.ehealthstar.com/conditions/acne-vulgaris Dermatitis herpetiformis can be very itchy and the bumps are more close together and they tend to crust over.  
    • What about Xanthan gum?  It really bothers me, so I avoid most commercially processed gluten-free breads, etc.  Never bothers my hubby though.  
    • I use to get them before I went gluten-free.  I stopped eating oats because it also does give me canker sores and causes my toes to get cracked underneath.  
    • I had quite a few of the medical problems that you have before I figured out that gluten was the problem. I can’t do basic math or writing when I eat gluten also I get depressed, irritable, low energy, etc. The best route to go is to do an elimination diet and monitor how certain foods affect you. I eliminated MSG (Monosodium Glutamate), Nitrite, and oat based on the reactions that I get once I consume them. You must be disciplined on a gluten free diet, there is not such a thing as –It is just one cookie! If you can manage to go 100% gluten-free for three weeks and you see those problems going away, you will have a good idea if that is the cause of your problems. The blood test I did after being gluten-free for two years came back negative so the doctor just make me feel that I was crazy and making things up. I have a stool test done which came back with elevated igA also a gene test indicating I have two genes that code for gluten sensitivity. My lactose intolerance went away too, eating a lot of cheese now. Rash in arms? gone, Brown spots in teeth? Gone, Intestinal noises? Gone, Lack of bladder control? Gone, Constipation? Gone, and a lot others.   
    • Oh you're most welcome!  Another thing --- no steroids, oral or injected for 2 months prior to a dh biopsy. Lay off any topical steroid creams for 2 weeks prior. Really, stand your ground with them. It would also be great if you can get a friend or family member to go with you in case they take the biopsy from somewhere that you can't see such as the back of your neck. Your friend/family member can watch to make sure they don't take it directly ON a lesion. Do you have a primary care doc? You can also go to that doc & ask for a full celiac panel PLUS an eTG or TG3. 60% of people with dh test negative on the celiac blood panel but maybe you're one of the 40% who will test positive. It's worth a shot.
