Could This Be My "glutenated"

Recommended Posts

Ok, so I've been gluten free since a gluten challenge March/april. Bloidworked confirmed celiac. I Also have hashimotos.

Three weeks ago I got a pain in my thyroid, swollen thyroid, swollen lymph nodes,sore throat, major fatigue, almost like getting sick, but no coughing or runny nose. I went to the dr. He believed it was viral, but did run some bloodwork. No mono or strep. Wbc lower than last month but still normal. Thyroid numbers changing but still normal. I was completely out, on the couch for three days with fatigue. I was almost back to normal after three weeks, energy back. Two days ago pain in my thyroid, throat aching,thyroid swollen, very tired on and off.

Both of these incidents happened two-three days after restaurant meals.

Could this be my gluten reaction, or do you think it could be just a thyroid thing? The thyroid swelling made me think thyroid originally, but now im wondering...

Thanx everybody!

I have Hashi's and I believe that Celiac Disease contributed to my wild swings from hypo to hyper (and back and forth) the three years before my celiac disease diagnosis. My thyroid has calmed down. It is not even enlarged anymore and my nodules are gone.

Going gluten free has reduced all that inflammation and has calmed my thyroid.

So, yes, your symptoms after restaurant meals can be gluten-related! I am no doctor though. Just my opinion!
