Mouth Sores
0

13 posts in this topic

hello,

this is my first post.

have been gluten free for almost 2 months. I tried this because of extreme fatigue, gas, anxiety and mouth sores. I have tested negative for celiac but was already gluten free for 5 weeks when tested.

I have had times felt almost normal ? I dont have to worry about the gas anymore- thank goodness, dont need to come home and immediately use the bathroom. I have been very careful about what I eat, checking everything. am starting to worry about cross contamination.., The mouth sores havent been as bad but just had an outbreak and it has me upset....

my dad was just tested for celiac and waiting for results, he has had ibs, takes 4 immodium daily and has neuropathy, he is now starting to go gluten free. I am taking my son in tomorrow to get tested as he has diarrhea regularly with fatigue and anxiety and he is willing to go gluten free?

I just was really hoping these mouth sores would go away?

Mouth sores can be a symptom of B vitamin deficiency (esp B2). Mine just showed up after four months gluten-free. From what I hear, this is a pretty common deficiency due to malabsorption that I guess (hope) gets better with time. Hopefully others with more experience will chime in here...

Mouth sores (and fatigue) are commonly found in other AI diseases too. A few months back I had some sort of AI flare up with deep fatigue, arthritic joints and hair loss... when it first started I thought I was getting sick because of the fatigue, aches and pains, and a sore throat but it wasn't a sore throat, it was a round of big mouth sores (mostly on top of mouth). I had been 2-3 months gluten-free at that point so I know it wasn't diet. It was either thyroid linked of some other AI disease.

If you determine that it isn't food linked, you could consider other causes.

Hop[e you feel better.

Mouth sores can also be a symptom of Crohn's. Not to scare you, as mouth sores could also appear for less serious reasons. Point is, you should see a physician if you have not already done so and see if they will run some tests across the board.

Before my celiac diagnosis I was getting mouth sores almost constantly.  If I ate anything contaminated with gluten I'd get blood filled blisters (immediately) while eating.  The worst were McDonald's hash browns (but only from certain McDonald's) and knarly artisan bread.  When the sharp edges of the bread poked my mouth a sore would develop.  The blisters would pop in a day or so, then the fun begins.  I'd suffer from the raw sore ulcer for several days to a week.  

 

I've been gluten-free for almost two years, but I still get these occasionally.  The most recent was after having work done on a tooth in prep for a crown.  

 

When they are bad, the outside of my face also hurts, like a burning nerve pain.  This latest has made the left side of my face hurt from my jaw to my eye.  

 

Besides taking tylenol or advil, what can I do to ease the pain or speed the recovery?  I've tried adding peroxide to mouthwash, but can't tell if this really helps or not.  

 

Anyone?  :(

Are you using a toothpaste without SLR?  I started using one when I suffered from canker sores before my diagnosis based on a recommendation from a dentist.  It helped some so I still use it (I believe Pronamel is what I use).  I only get them occasionally now and they are far less severe!

For me, mouth sores are the first symptom that appears whenever I have ingested gluten. If I continue eating it, the blisters get bigger and bigger and are soo sore!

There's a script you can get from your GP, it's friendly name is 'Swish and Swirl".  It will also temporarily numb the area.  It's good stuff.

    • Oh, and as I mentioned in my own post on pain, xanax. I swear. I tried it just to deal with the occasional panic I had at weird scary symptoms and clueless doctors. I am not a fan of long term use. But I recently found that .25 mg seems to aid with the neuropathic pain. It does not go away, but it helps. 
    • It does sound like a Glutening and you are just a few months into the diet.  It might help if you read our Newbie 101 thread under the "Coping" section.   Here is some information about rice milk: https://www.verywell.com/is-rice-dream-gluten-free-562354 Many, many celiacs are often lactose intolerant temorarily or permanently if you are naturally genetically inclined.  When I am glutened, I lose the ability to digest lactose for a while.   Salad?  Great but it can be rough on a sore gut!  Think soups, stews, easy-to-digest foods that you prepare yourself until you feel better.  Did your folks give you salad after a bout of flu?  Or did you stick with jello and broth?  I am intolerant still after three years to garlic and onions (the lactose resolved, thankfully).  You have a leaky gut (Google zonulin and Dr. Fasano who is a leading celiac researcher to verify that this is true) and that means you can become intolerant to anything (hopefully, just temporarily).   If you are 100% sure that you have had no access to gluten....did you eat out lately?.....then see your doctor.  Remember, celiac disease symptoms can change.  And here is the biggie.....it can take weeks, months or years to heal from celiac disease.  Two months in is nothing, really.  Why?  It takes time to figure out the diet and time for antibodies to come down.  celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder triggerEd by gluten.  once triggered it can go on and on damaging your gut especially with repeated glutenings (accidental or through cross contamination). I hope you feel better soon!  
    • I concur! I literally feel your pain as well. Like, at the moment, lol. Did you have an endo to see inflammation or damage? I am close to begging my GI for carafate or something to coat and protect. How about testing your antibodies to see if they are still rising? I read somewhere here rice milk may not be a good option.  Folks here have also suggested to me to stick with whole foods. Limit processed. Especially stuff that is not certified gluten-free, like chex. I think small amounts of gluten are in processed foids and can add up. I too reacted to lettuce the other day like I was ingesting glass. My sibling  had a food sensitivity panel done and it came back positive for a few things he had been eating a lot of. He can now eat them, but had to cut them out of his diet. Lettuce is probably on mine.  I have been drinking carrot and pomegranate juice,  dandelion root tea with hiney, aloe water, lots of squash, fish. Mild, no garlic, no onions or hot sauce. No coffee. It sucks.  Inflammation can tick off other organs, you mention a "Pain below". Not exactly sure which side, but certainly call your doc Monday. Sooner if the pain increases.
    • You should see a GI specialist before you go gluten free.  They should do a upper endoscopy to check for celiac damage.  Colonoscopy won't show anything related to celiac.  Also no you should not feel worse on gluten free, you should feel better.
    • So ok, I get the pain/bloating thing, but it still feels so crazy. But my god, I look 6 months preggers after dinner and 4 months the rest of the time. How long will this last?! I have not gained any weight but have to hide me belly now. I can hardly breath! Omg, that does take me back to pregnancy.  I had "acute marked focal duodenditis" a few weeks ago and an elevated DGP. the pain sometimes makes me seriously think I must be bleeding somewhere. It is actually worse then 3 weeks ago. Although many of the other glutening symptoms are finally vanishing. Even my mid and lower back is tender to touch. Sometimes it burns, aches or like someone is stabbing me in my side. My ribs hurt and everything is tender.  I am on protonix and fish oil. I have a prn for xanax which helps the pain (off market use for muscle relaxant).    I am fair skinned and notice a red under-the-skin discolored rash that comes and goes on my upper stomach. Sometimes it travels down one side. Not itchy. Almost like I can actually see the inflammation under my skin.  1) when will I stop looking knocked up?  2) Any other fair-skinned folks notice a purpleish-red rash on your bellies? It mostly goes away and comes back, which I tske to be a good sign.
