Question... Allergy Or Celiac's

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone, sorry if this has been asked before...

About 2 years ago I was diagnosed w/Celiac's from a biopsy and bloodwork.  I briefly followed a gluten-free diet, but found it difficult to follow because my symptoms weren't immediate (I don't get an upset stomach).  My symptoms were more neurological/puffy face, foggy feeling, muscle tightness.  I also have hypothyroidism and when my T3/T4 levels were normal, I felt great.

 

Recently, I've been getting VERY flushed after eating dinner and I'm wondering if it could be from eating gluten?  Do any of you get flushed after consuming a meal with gluten?  It doesn't last very long, maybe like 15-20 minutes and it's not raised or anything like a rash.  Just very hot and very red on my chest/neck/face.  Occasionally, I'll just get flushed for no reason, and I get flushed after exerting myself.  I do have fair skin but I've never gotten flushed like THIS.  

 

I figure before I go to the Dr. about this, I would ask about others experiences.  If others had a similar reaction to gluten, I'll eliminate it for a few wks and see if the symptoms improve, if not I guess I'll have to get allergy tested...?

 

Thanks in advance for your help/suggestions!  This forum is a great resource. :)

You've been diagnosed with celiac. You should not be eating gluten in any way, shape or form.

 

Symptoms change. Not all celiacs have stomach problems. It has a wide variety of symptoms.

 

It would not surprise me in the slightest if that was what is causing your symptoms.

It wouldn't surprise me in the least if these symptoms are because you don't do anything about the very serious medical condition you have.

 

This is a very short and not comprehensive list of symptoms. https://www.celiac.com/articles/1106/1/Celiac-Disease-Symptoms/Page1.html

 

You'll note that after the symptoms there is a list of conditions and disorders associated with celiac. Again, this is far from comprehensive. Many of these are also autoimmune diseases, and you remain at risk of developing these only as long as you continue to poison your body. Did a doctor, or anyone, ever bother explaining to you what actually happens in a celiac's body when they eat gluten. Enlighten yourself, you may find that you want to stop what you are doing now, rather than waiting until you are on death's doorstep or marching to his house as many of us were.
