In Topic: Celiac With Itchy Legs - No Rash

I think it is a deficiency, I had the same problem now it's very rare and very minimal. It was worse for me through my pregnancies, it was nerves in my legs that's why when I tried lotions and things nothing helped. When I started taking supplements and eating mostly fruits and veggies it got better. I can't tell you what kind of deficiency because I never tried to single it out was just glad it was gone.

I did just start taking a womans one a day multi vitamin.... i'm hoping that will help.

I've had this exact same thing. I'm fine in the day, then I try to go to sleep and BAM! Itchy legs! No spots, no dryness, no nothing. Drives me mental. Had no idea it might be a gluten-smashing thing! I assumed it was bugs or something or something in awful university flats.

I actually thought the same thing about bugs.... but it happens even when i'm sitting on the couch when I get home from work.  Up until bed and then all night long.  I went out of town last weekend and even had it at night in the hotel... I have even gone to some friends house and it still is only at night.

There is no rhyme or reason to it at all and it drives me crazy!!!

I have itchiness in my legs, too!  It's an itch that just seems to take over and nothing will help!! I don't get it all the time...I do notice it more after a glutening.  For instance, yesterday I made a HORRIBLE mistake and ate something that had gluten (I wasn't aware)...Last night, the itching was out of control.  Heat seems to help!  I think it's somehow linked to the Celiac...like all the toxins trying to get out of my body someway, somehow!!  Is your itchiness constant?? 





Mine is not constant... it's only at night.  I have spoken with my dr and they don't think it's allergies when I haven't changed anything and if it was that... it would be constant.  I don't believe it's a gluten reaction either because I haven't had any gluten that i'm aware of, and I would certainly be feeling it other places if I was getting it.  The only thing that soothes mine is ice packs on them.  I have even gone to bed with ice packs just so I can sleep.

That's true... So how do I find what it is and what to do about it??

Thanks all for your replies...
What would the allergic reaction be from if I haven't changed anything in years? I've used the same products forever and if it was that, why only at night.

And yes I know about prednisone being bad, I didn't even finish the while dose because of reactions. That stuff is nasty. I just found it odd that when I was taking it, the itching got much better.
