Gluten contamination

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Three times this year I had gotten gluten contaminated. Each time I had a fever of 100.5 Why don't I see this happening to others.  I've been diagnosed with celiac 8 years ago. Now when I get contaminated I have vomiting, diarrhea and fever for 2 to 3 hours along with extreme fatigue. Just curious if this happens with others.

I usual get a rash eruption, muscle aches, and nerve pain. I can get other issues as well. I think we vary in our symptoms. My first to trigger symptom tends to be my skin now. My skin manifestation actually starts out with itching beneath my skin before my skin begins to burn, turn red, then throws up a DH blister. My muscle,gi issues, and nerves start shortly after. I am sorry you are currently experiencing a reaction to cc. 

best wishes to heal quickly.

I've not heard of a fever being a side-effect of a celiac eating gluten, but I don't doubt that you experienced it. It's possible it was coincidental and you had some other thing going on, but it's also possible that your immune system was sent into attack mode and was doing this as part of its response to protect you. 

It would be interesting to see if others have had the same experience.

When I get glutened, my blood sugar spikes and I get a fever due to the hyperglycemia.  The fever stays around until my blood glucose levels start coming down which may be several hours.  I drink water to stay hydrated.  I also take 100 mg each of thiamine and niacin which the body needs to process those extra carbohydrates.

When I get glutened, I have heart palpitations and burping. My symptoms last for at least three days.  Does anyone else have a few days of symptoms before feeling better? I am thinking that gluten must be  in the body for a few days? 

I think you need to research celiac disease.  It is an autoimmune disorder like Lupus or Rheumatoid Arthritis except the trigger is known — gluten.  it is not an allergy.  Once ingested, an autoimmune response starts.  How long it lasts and what the symptoms are can differ from person to person.  For me, a gluten exposure usually lasts about 1 to 2 months.  Pretty long.  For others it is less.  And for some there are no symptoms and they can not gauge how much small intestinal damage is being done.  

I am sorry.  I was so abrupt.  I think you do not have a diagnosis yet.  Perhaps you may have non-Celiac Gluten Sensitivity.   Let’s see what other members with NCGS report.  I can only speak for celiac disease. 😊

Thank you for the information. I will check it out. It could be non-Celiac Gluten Sensitivity.

In any case, it sounds like gluten is not for you.  Glad you feel better on the diet.  Keep researching because it is your best defense, whether you are looking for a diagnosis or to avoid gluten in your diet.  You are your own best advocate!
