5 posts in this topic

Just wondering if anyone here has had burning lips? is it a symptom of gluten intolerance? wheat allergy?

I do have an appointment coming up and am getting allergy testing done along with B12.

Yes, I had burning lips, mouth, throat and GI tract for 3 years. It was horrible.

No one could explain it to me.

It was an inflammatory response apparently, because some time after going gluten-free after DX, it stopped.

Are they just burning, or actually infected? Could be perioral dematitis. If it is, an antibiotic will clear it up.

sorry, I should have been more clear...no signs of infections,no sores, no cold sores...I wonder if it's a B12 deficiency or an allergic reaction? will find out my B12 results next week and now I have a referral to an allergist..I was told the office would call me to set up the appointment...whenever/whatever I find out is the cause, I will post back and hopefully will help someone else who might have this symptom!

it feels like I ate something hot/spicy and it got on my lips.

I thought it was a B-12 deficiency too, but I was treated for that and it still burned. I had all kinds of allergy testing--nothing there.

It was crazy. I heard all kinds of theories: yeast infection, menopause, vits defs, etc etc. Nope.

Eventually, it stopped, but it sizzled pretty good for a long time....and yes, just like I had eaten and swallowed something hot and spicy.

I could not tolerate acidic foods for a long, long time.

Now, it's all gone. YAAY!

Hang in there--I hope you get answers --and some relief soon.

    • Thankyou both! I was wondering if my high levels left much doubt on the diagnosis. I don't see the GI until the 15th Sep and I don't think I can stand to eat gluten in that time. If he tells me to I will do so after then. After 25 years of symptoms I don't think there is much chance of healing my bowel In a couple of weeks. I'm actually terrified of the damage they might find. But I think I will need the endo since there may be other things going on with me. So great they didn't put your son through the biopsy! Once I have a formal diagnosis I have my kids to worry about also. I can't even stand the thought of my daughter having a blood test. I think she would need to be sedated as she is so fearful and pain sensitive. My son is not yet 2 so I don't think they will test him. I'm feeling so off at the moment. I think I have some anxiety and reflux going on complicating things quite a bit.
    • My son's antibodies were 300. Based on his extremely high levels, his pediatric GI suggested genetic testing instead of the biopsy. Genetic testing can't diagnose celiac on its own but combined with such high levels, the gi dr was confident a positive genetic test would confidently diagnose celiac. He warned that biopsies are small snapshots of the intestine and can miss damage. He said this is an approach used very often in Europe but not as much in the US. What sold me on that approach was the ability to put my son directly on a gluten free diet instead of waiting three weeks for the biopsy, during which time he would continue to eat gluten and feel terrible. I'm not sure if this is more common with younger patients though (our son is two), based on the idea that he's had less time to inflict damage that would show in a biopsy? We are very happy that we immediately started the gluten free diet and chose the genetic testing. Our son got the proper diagnosis and his recent number shows a drop to 71 after only 4.5 months gluten free! Not sure if this helps. Good luck and I hope you feel better soon!
    • We have been off gluten for a while now, and symptoms return when I've allowed gluten full meals… so something still isn't sitting right with me.  Checking with her doc about seeing a pediactric GI although I'm not sure how long that will take since we live in small town America. I know she didn't get at least one of the recommended full panel tests but maybe two, can someone help clarify, or is she missing two? DGP for sure and possibly EMA? And if I understand what I'm reading in other posts that the DGP can be more accurate? Thanks Her blood panel results: Ttg ab iga <.5u/ml ttg igg <.8u/ml aga ab iga <.2 u/ml aga an igg <.7u/ml iga 61mg/dL  
    • I was tested for the full panel, I believe. I had normal values for t-transglutaminase (ttg) igg,t-transglutaminase (ttg) iga, deamidated gliadin abs igg, deamidated gliadin abs iga, and immunoglobulin a qn serum.  
    • Would you review this on Find Me Gluten free?  You can  use the app or just go to it on line. If the restaurant isn't listed, there is a way to suggest it.  I have done that and it works.  Many of us look at that site/ app
