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.

lysine  is  good for  mouth  sores....I hope  you  find  once  on the  gluten free for  many months  the mouth  sores  will become  less & less... But  do  take  probiotics  & digestive  enzymes..

    • The anxiety thing is there I take teas, and supplements along with CBD oil to help with it, and long walks and exercise when I get antsy. As for the human interaction it is a mix of other mental issues, and the way I feel about people who can eat gluten. If they are not eating I have no issue talking with people. I mentioned I have issues accepting them as the same species when I see them eating. My reaction to gluten is so ingrained in me that it is not a food but a poison, that watching others eat it causes a subconscious reaction where I find myself avoiding them and looking down on them like something from another planet. I end up disgusted with them and walking away, I will go out of my way to avoid people and places where foods like this are present. This is my TRAUMA part of the gluten exposure, and one of the big things I am trying to address in my life right now. I know it is irrational to do so but I end up doing it, I have never cared about others race, religion, or looks, but if I see them eating a gluten/poison, it somehow changes how I perceive them and interact with them and I hate this part about me. It is taking a lot of mental effort to try to smile and treat them as a human, and not something to be looked down upon in disgust. I just recall that mental state that gluten puts me in with my mind and body turning against me and not doing what I will it and the fear comes back. This diet is pretty much like mine, I take Doctors best Magnesium powder in a tea that is actually brewed with st johns wort (never thought much of it) , I use Liquid Health Stress & Energy along with the Neurologic Support they have, twice-three times a day for B vitamins(along with a bunch of other supplements) . I can not digest meats or carbs well, meats it is a issue with breaking them down same with egg yolks, I literally just burp up the undigested meats hours later. I have found the only way to eat them is to boil/slow cook them til they melt then blend them into a broth and have it with digestive enzymes so only do it with turkey bacon, longhorn, and salmon in small amounts in soups or for flavoring stock for stir frys.  As for Carbs like rice and potatoes I end up getting really gassy and bloated, same with sugars in any amount greater then like the size of my thumb give or take. Oats I only have gluten-free Harvest in about a tbsp amount when tasting recipes of stuff I sell at farmers markets. So I eat mostly fats and protein from egg whites, nuts, seeds, veggies, and vegan protein powders blends balanced for complete proteins. I have at least 1-2 dried fig, dates, handful of banana chips, or a 1/4 of a small fruit with meals for fruits.  My meals are mostly egg white and veggie omelettes, stir frys, and soups, Always with lots of fats and proteins in each meal. I have found having nutritional yeast to help with my mood and energy levels also and find someway of having it in meals often. I keep my foods on rotation and keep getting updated feed back on ratios with my dietician. I also have a rather odd list of foods I can not eat due to allergies/intolerance.
    • It only takes a minute to make a difference. Celiac disease has been overshadowed by the gluten-free diet fad. Getting diagnosed and staying healthy is no piece of cake – those of us who have celiac disease struggle to stay healthy. We need better. We need to be understood. We need a cure.

    • If you are one of the approximately 2-3 million Americans with celiac disease, ZyGluten™ may be taken before you eat out at a restaurant or a friend\'s house, as it may help break down any gluten cross-contamination that you might encounter. View the full article
    • Advil (ibuprofen) is gluten-free, but can be a stomach irritant, especially if taken on an empty stomach. That said, I will also place my bet on the garlic and onions. As Raven said, eating more than once a day may also help. An empty stomach is likely to be an irritable stomach.
    • DaVinci's Pizza has several gluten-free items great gluten-free pizza (well done suggested) and they don't have anything with gluten that goes in the fryer, so wing and fries are great all salad dressing made in house and gluten-free.  Owners mom has Celiac so they're very empathetic. Cheers. And enjoy. I eat there all the time and have NEVER had an issue. And if someone just touches bread then prepares my food its all over for me 6-8 hrs of reaction for me. Also Jimmy Johns @ 17th and Peachtree Street also great just tellm'to change glove and ask for the paper to be placed on the sandwich board before they make it. Also never had an issue but I have only had the Italian style lettuce wrap.
