Hot Flashes, Blood-shot Eyes As Symptoms

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

My Gluten Intolerance symptoms began about two years ago and slowly became worse and worse. Like many people, I had no idea what was wrong with me and have still not gotten a firm diagnosis from a Gastroenterologist as to what I have. By deduction he has said I have a Gluten Intolerance but not necessarily Celiac Disease (I'm not sure what the difference is). This diagnosis came after a Barium Swallow (that showed nothing) and an Upper GI series (that also showed nothing). All I know is that if I stay away from breads and anything with flour or any wheat product I'm fine. I want to list my symptoms and see if anyone has the same. The symptoms I experience don't quite fit with the traditional list of symptoms I read about (namely diarrea). Within ten to thirty minutes of consuming gluten this is what happens:

In the lower left quadrant of my abdomen I experience what can only be described as a mixture of a dull and sharp ache/pain that gradually worsens and seems to affect my whole body.

Fatigue.

Hot Flash (my whole body gets very hot).

Eyes get extremely bloodshot.

On rare occasions I vomit (usually I just induce it...as it makes me feel much better afterwards).

When I start to feel better I get very cold (I guess because I was so hot before) and even more exhausted.

There is rarely, if ever, any episode with bloating, gas, or diarrea. This is what is perplexing to me. My symptoms are more rare since I'm not eating any gluten (except for those times when I'm unaware I've eaten in as in sauces and the like). If anyone experiences the same type of symptoms I'd love to hear about it.

Hey I think you have my symptoms down to a tee. I still haven't gotten the results from the ENT either, which makes me worried that it could be something else like diabetes.

First, when I went off gluten, I felt much better after only two to three days. Then, 3 weeks later, out of nowhere, my eyes have gotten completely bloodshot again and I have the hot flashes again.

It would be interesting to know if this is really just gluten related or if it could be something else.
