My morning gluten reactions were always most noticeable for painin the mornings. I remember getting terrible stomach aches after eating waffles... I thought it was the syrup. Lol. It sounds like you probably need to stay gluten-free. Hope you feel better.

HI,

It sounds like you have Hashimoto's Thyrioditis or Graves disease? Either one could cause symptoms like the racing heart, eyes feeling swollen. and other things you described. Graves is a condition where the thyroid puts out too much thyroid hormone and ramps up the body metabolism too much. Hashimoto's causes damage to the thyroid and can cause hyper-thyroid symptoms like graves, but it is usually intermittent with hypo-thyroid symptoms at times. Eventually the thyroid is destroyed and the person becomes hypo -thyroid all the time. Hashimoto's is an autoimmune disease like celiac is, and they are sometimes found together.

Try a search on Hashimoto's and you will find lots of thjreads here about it. Several people on the forum have it. They test for TPO antibodies to determine if you have Hashimoto's. I am not surprised to hear it causes thyroid reactions when you eat gluten. There does seem to be a pretty strong link to thyroid issues and gluten.
