Anyone Get A Fever When Glutened?

18 March 2014 - 05:45 AM

My son got glutened this weekend at a camp.  It's the first time since he was diagnosed with celiac and went gluten-free that I know he had gluten.  Within about 12 hours he was nauseous, unhappy, and running a fever.  So we came home early.  By that evening he was able to eat again and the fever broke overnight so I sent him to school yesterday.  And now this morning the fever, nausea, and lack of appetite are back.


It seems way too coincidental to just be a stomach bug, but the fever seems weird.  And since we know he accidentally ate some gluten, it seems like the cause-and-effect is clearly there.  But I'm curious if others have had fevers when glutened.  I posted on the parent's board, too,  but thought I might catch more people over here.



We Know He Was Glutened - But A Fever?

17 March 2014 - 09:14 AM

My son was at a camp this weekend (with me).  The camp actually had pretty good procedures for keeping kids with dietary restrictions safe, but one night procedures weren't followed and my son was given some gluteny gravy.  He got about 3 or 4 bites down before we figured out what was up.  Oops.  


It's the only time in the last 2 years that I know for sure he has eaten gluten.  The next morning he was nauseous, unhappy, exhausted, and felt rotten.  I took him home early.  He slept for 5 hours straight and woke up with a fever of 101.  He didn't eat most of the day, but by dinner seemed to be doing better.  His fever was gone this morning, so I sent him back to school today. 


Before going gluten-free, he didn't have any outward symptoms.  He was just anemic.  I know that celiacs often get more sensitive to gluten once going gluten-free, but the fever thing seems weird.  It also seems too coincidental that this wouldn't be from glutening, given the timing and the fact that he was also nauseous and didn't want to eat all day.  


Anyone else get a fever from being glutened?
