Coughing As Symptom
0

8 posts in this topic

I was diagnosed with Celiac almost 3 months ago by my Naturalist Dr and then got pneumonia right after. I have been to my regular Dr, a Pulmonary Dr, allergist and had CT Scans chest X-rays MRI's and taken everything imaginable for a chronic persistent cough. I went back to my Naturalist Dr and he said because of the antibiotics and steroids and other meds it has altered my immune system and therefore the inflammation in my lungs has not gone away. We are working on that now, but has anyone ever heard of the cough as being a symptom of Celiac ? What did you do ? Please help

YES!!

My son's gerd presented with chronic cough at age 8....took several years for them to determine he was aspirating into his lungs while he slept which caused a chronic cough. We tried treating gerd unsuccessfully for many years...until I was finally diagnosed with Celiac -- he decided to remove gluten after negative blood tests because of several symptoms -- gerd improved, but has not completely resolved. His other symptoms are completely resolved.

Thanks for the reply. I know the Celiac presents all kinds of symptoms. I'm just a little frustrated with the cough.

Understand completely - the son I mention has been coughing consistently in the morning for over 10 years - it is far better gluten-free, but sadly remains unresolved.

He has tried removing other foods and likely will give an elimination diet another shot - he's just not ready right now.

Ps He is currently drinking nettle tea each day to see if it helps with his sinus inflammation - it seems to be helping - he has regained some sense of smell and his cough seems to be slightly improved - no promises, but it might be worth a try.

Thought this might be of interest.

My hubs kindly gave up gluten the same time as me :rolleyes: to help. He has psoriatic arthritis quite badly (23 years) and psoriasis before that.

Guessing timeframe, but I would say has had a chronic cough for about last 8 years - on and off. A soft, irritating cough especially when talking. He takes long term anti-inflammatory pain killers which may have had an effect on his immune system (?) Even thought it might be psychological, like a nervous cough although he is not at all that type.

After going gluten free - cough has vanished :D !! Also snoring gone :D !!

When he sort of did a gluten challenge (back to enormous bowl - almost a bucket :ph34r:) of cereal for breakfast by the second day he could hardly speak or swallow by evening because of what must have been cattargh (sp?) at the back of his throat.

Needless to say he is gluten free now and best of all, much improved arthritis.

Isn't that amazing - my nonceliac hubby is mostly gluten-free as our house is - as his time mostly gluten-free has increased his minor pains and weight issues are vanishing - he seems to be getting younger rather than older :)

Thanks for the information. It does help. I'm looking for anything to share with the Drs. Not that they haven't thought of it already

      Update: I am about at my wit's end. I won't be able to see my new doctor until July 17 to get a referral to a GI doctor, so I continue to eat gluten and the effects continue to worsen. Today my boss, whom I have been working with for 12 years, and I had a meeting where he said he's noticed a change in many things, such as speech, not articulating well, forgetfulness, and other things that are affecting my work product. I finally told him I know there is something wrong with me medically and I've been trying to get to the doctor to no avail. I recall those four weeks early in the year when I tried out gluten free and was beginning to feel much better- more present, more sharp, and then went back on gluten in preparation for the blood test.  I just don't think I can do this gluten thing any longer and am thinking of going cold-turkey gluten free.  I'm 54 years old, am beginning not to care about a diagnosis because I just want to feel better and be able to do what I need to do. Because of how I felt going off of gluten earlier in the year, and eating gluten free when I was on the McDougall plan years ago, and how I feel while doing this gluten challenge, I am pretty convinced that my issue is gluten.  Any words of encouragement would be welcome.  If you've done gluten free and never looked back, tell me about it.

      "I got this vaccination in 2009 when I was 20 and it completely altered my life. Made my celiac disease so much worse, sleep 15-18 hours a day, SIBO, it has completely altered my life since getting this vaccination. My doctor has two twin girls about my age and they both have digestion problems after receiving gardasil Thank you I have a young daughter and have wondered this exact question posed by the poster and your response has given me great pause about this issue which may come up in years to come. I am sorry to hear this wreak havoc on your life, but simultaneously thank you for sharing this detail to help those of us that have likely been decades misdiagnosed celiacs now raising children. Thank you.
    • Gluten does WHAT to the brain?
      "Wondering what kind of life my brother could have had - if  he had celiac - constantly haunts me" My sympathies that is just tragic, as this story is.  I hope you are at peace knowing you are aware of your celiac and help so many lost, scared, and confused celiacs here. It can never bring back your brother but I hope it can give soften some of what you feel that was/is beyond your control. His suffering and your loss has made you a better advocate to yourself and in your work helping us. I don't like my body or my  brain on gluten either. I do fear that people overlook the toll inflammation takes on the brain. It likely may explain decades of mental illness that was brain based inflammation unknown until changes in technology advancement catch up. However consuming gluten to study how one enters psychosis may not be the best method. Do no harm.

    • Gardasil And Celiac
      I have this same issue! I got gardasil in 2009 and have never been the same since. Celiac disease, thyroid problems. I used to be healthy and active and since I got that shot I have never been the same.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
