Does Coffee And Strong Tea Put Anyone Over The Edge And Give You Celiac Like Symptoms?

8 posts in this topic

I hate it when I don't know what does it and after I was doing so well. Have many people given up coffee, soda,

tea? I went to the gym and was fine and then came home and had a diet coke and the rest of my morning coffee and a few sips of yesterday's tea. Then felt girgly, but wanted to get take out for the kids. We went to pick it up and it hit like a train. I had to take 2 imodium while there. I hate that when I was doing so good. Sometimes I get lax after a span of doing so well. My dd said her stomach was bothering her so maybe it is a germ in our house. We had a fun night of drinking at my aunts a few night back. That could have made me more apt for an issue. Who knows. I also ate some semispoiled sunflower sprouts. I hate taking imodium because then it may plug for a few days and then have this same problem. I'll try to skip the coffee tomorrow. lol

On a better note, Happy new year everyone. I wish everyone a symptom free year. (In our dreams, I know. But I can wish it anyway.) :)

I have been caffeine-free since approximately 1972. I drink only herbal/fruit teas. An occasional decaf coffee. Try eliminating the caffeine and see if it helps. Those things you mention, while hard to give up, are not giving you any nutrition anyway :) But if your daughter feels bad too, you may have gotten some cross-contamination somewhere.

Its the caffine probably. I generally don't do it as it makes me wide awake. I dropped it completely after my GERD got bad. I've yet to try it again.

I had to give up coffee and tea and caffeine sodas 9 years ago. I now have a couple of small teas a week but get a bit of reflux. I don't know if it is related to the celiac, but I uncovered it when doing an elimination diet when I also lost wheat. Wish I had known then what gluten is...

Actually I had a similar reaction myself yesterday. I drank a coconut latte thinking that I usually do okay with little occasional cups of coffee...but boom, right afterwards and for hours after that, I had C, D and some pretty horrible abdominal pain. At first I blamed it on the caffeine, but since then, I am thinking it was either the milk or the syrup.

Both alcohol and coffee cause intestinal permeability to increase (leaky gut) and we are consequently more sensitive to gluten, lactose and fructose (sugar). I gues, given the recent New year celebrations, we will see more stories like this.

I sometimes get very bad stomach cramps and D after drinking coffee or black tea. It happens about one out of 10 times and mostly when I don't put milk, other than that I haven't the slightest clue why I get this reaction. It's not my gluten symptoms so no cc involved.

Coffee is acidic and hurts my stomach if I don't add a bit of milk.

    • Hi.  I have been reading your post and thinking about how my pain was around diagnosis.  It was above the belly button, I think where you are describing.  At the time I assumed I had a stomach ulcer.   I had been taking Neurofen for an ear problem and assumed it was the NSAID that had caused my stomach ulcer (which I actually didn't have, when I had an endoscopy a few weeks later my stomach was looking great! My small intestine was not!).   Going back to the pain, it was a burning feeling.   My doctor prescribed Omeprazole but it didn't touch it.   In fact I ended up with bad D. which eventually lead to me having all the tests for Celiac Disease.   I still get that pain if I eat oats (pure oats) that are supposed to be OK for most Celiacs.     I get various pains in different places in my digestive tract from time to time, but that burning pain is something I won't forget. The other thing I had that you mention was that pain between the shoulder blades.  I had that - I felt almost like someone was pushing my shoulders down.  So odd. I get palpitations when I am anemic.    I hope you get some answers soon.  It is pretty tough having to keep going from one doctor to another, but sometimes it is the only way.   
    • I sit in an ice bath after a long training (running or riding).  It speeds my recovery, I swear!  
    • Oh, one last thing..... ICE PACKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You'll feel better. Hey, you have a tub? Want to join the polar bear club in the privacy of your own home? Fill that thing with cold water & dump a 5 or 10 lb bag of ice in there. I'm serious.
    • I don't care what she specializes in, you MAKE her do a dh biopsy. I'm not being mean. Please understand that. It's just that I've heard this a thousand times before - no, a thousand one hundred!  Here's another thing ~~~ get her to order a eTG aka TG3 serum (blood test). That is specific for dh.  Oh gosh! Don't you just hate the ones in your ears???!!!!! Nah, we hate ALL of them! I swear though, when those suckers get going in & on your ears it just drives you stark raving mad!!!!! You've convinced me there is more than ample reason to strongly suspect it's dh.  Here's a tip..... the patterning the lab will be looking for is very easily destroyed by scratching so pick you out some prime places that are new & maybe, just maybe you haven't scratched them to smithereens thus far, and make some super thick gauze bandages & place them over those places so even if you reach to scratch (& we know you will! right?) the gauze will remind you & hopefully help to protect it. The biopsy needs to be taken from a clear area adjacent to a fresh lesion. No steroid creams okay? Not till after the biopsy. BTW, if she wants to put you on steroids after the biopsy be warned, 99% of the time there is such a backlash of the rash the moment you go off the steroid that you will wish you were never born. A dx of dh IS a dx of celiac disease & no further testing is needed. Please come back & update us after you see her tomorrow. In the meantime you have my heartfelt sympathy. Take those cold showers & grit your teeth. Hopefully you will soon be able to go gluten free & start getting some relief.   
    • Extremely itchy and keeps me up at night to the point I was taking cold showers at 3am.   Currently my ears, scalp, feet, and chin just will not stop itching, my elbows have the rash and look purple. Eventually the rash will heal and leaves scars that seem to be purplish in color. I have not tried gluten free diet yet.  Waiting for all the testing to stop.  The new allergist i am seeing tomorrow specializes in skin disorders.
