Itchy Mouth
0

6 posts in this topic

Hi there

Wasn't sure where to put this but just lately, about last week, I have found myself itching roof of mouth with tongue - very itchy. I have had this in the past but had forgotten all about it. Now it's back.

Have been having some chocolate lately (which I can't eat) so although no gluten ingredients, guess I'm getting cc'd.

Battled candida for ten years in the past (thought my celiac was candida :wacko: ) but now I'm wondering.

Not wishing to muddy the waters with another theory but anyone else get this itchy mouth?

(PS. Get itchy inner ears sometimes too but believe this to be associated with thyroid).

Yes, definitely allergy symptom. I get that with many of my food allergies. It is often the first symptom when I develop a new one. I have a chocolate allergy but there are other ingredients in chocolate that can be allergens as well, soy and dairy. You should consider reporting it to an allergist. Look for one who is used to running large panels for foods and belives in elimination even if you don't have anaphylaxis. Many mainstream allergist don't really bother with foods and won't recommend elimination/avoidance unless someone has a severe reaction. I find that I get big payoff by avoiding my "milder" food allergies.

Think you could be right.

Have noticed today itchy lumps back of roof of mouth and these are where the itch is coming from. Also some itchy face around mouth.

Well, I shouldn't be eating choc anyway as have big issues with soy - don't know what I'm thinking this week :blink: . (Just rubbed my face then)!

I have an unfriendly soy allergy. There are chocolates with no soy out there. I could have no soy, no dairy and had to watch the sugar carefully for a while and I still found a couple options...until I ended up allergic to the chocolate itself. I have been abe to gain back a few foods after long avoidance but my allergist has a protocol I follow for re-introduction and a different protocol for foods that are riskier for me. I am currently enjoying a little chocolate again-soy and dairy-free ;) on an occasional basis, after maybe a year avoidance.

Wanna know something funny? My allergy to tomatos mainly shows up as burning on my head neck and sholders, like a really bad sunburn without the redness. Though i once had it turn part of my tounge numb. Took it to my allergist and he said yep (along with the positive skin test, one of the biggest hives he's seen on it)

    • Oh, Trish at the GlutenFreeWatchDog tested Planter's honey roasted peanuts three years ago.  The can did not state gluten-free, but showed no gluten ingrediants (per Kraft policy).  Test result: less than 5 part per million which is pretty much gluten-free.  
    • What if it were something else that glutened you?  Maybe you ate too much of a good thing?  I once (three months post dx) ate too much gluten-free fried chicken, vomited, passed out and fractured my back (osteoporosis) in the process.  Paramedics, ER doc and Cardio all thought I was having a heart attack.   No.  It was sheer gluttony and bad bones.  Not good to overload with a damaged gut.    Maybe you did get some contaminated nuts.  Afterall, anything processed is suspect.  What might be well tolerated by some, might be too much for others.  We all have our various levels of gluten intolerance.   The old 20 parts per million is just a guideline, but science does not really know (lack of funding......doe anyone really care enough to find out?)  My hubby has been gluten-free for 15 years.  When I was first diagnosed, I tried to eat the gluten-free foods that I normally gave him.   Problem was he was healed and I was not.  Things like Xanthan Gum in commercial processed gluten-free breads make me feel like I have been glutened, but it is just (and still is) an intolerance.  So no bread for me unless I make it myself using a different gum.   Too lazy, so I do without.   so, ask your doctor if you really want to know or lay off the cashews and test them again in a month using a certified gluten-free nut.  I wish this was easier!    
    • I have intolerances to a few foods now, so I was wondering about that.. I love cashews though, and a month or two ago I was eating them all the time with no problems at all. I mean, could I really have developed an intolerance to them since then? I don't know if they're made on shared lines (it didn't say on the package so I assumed they weren't), but I'll give them a call. I'm really, really sensitive to cross contamination. Even if something is just made in the same facility (but not on shared lines) it will make me sick. If that's not it, then I'm not really sure
    • Research with KP and find a celiac-savvy GI in your area ( read the biographies). and ask your PCP/GP for a referral to that specific GI (not his buddy).  Ask the GI for the rest  of the celiac panel or proceed with an endoscopy/biopsies -- 4 to six.  Keep eating gluten daily until all testing is complete.  Document and request in writing.  Do not worry about symptoms.  There are over 300 of them and some celiacs have none!   Research all that you can about celiac disease.  The University of Chicago has a great celiac website that has testing Information etc.   Poet me know how it works out.  Hope you feel better soon!  
    • I react to both wheat and barley.  I've opted to just go completely gluten free, for the sake of simplicity and my sanity.  I don't have a diagnosis of celiac disease, but I strongly suspect it.  Unfortunately, I'm not willing to endure the misery of staying on gluten long enough to pursue further testing.  I just know I need to avoid the gluten grains, so I do.
