Many people report withdrawal symptoms after going gluten free. Most likely, just drink plenty of water, hang in there, and you will be feeling much better soon!

However, I have read that because of all the chemicals in our water supply, menopause is happening early for some women. So while your doctor is probably right that it isn't menopause (most likely gluten withdrawal), his reasoning isn't exactly bullet proof. Apparently women as young as 15 can experience menopause.


Gluten-Free since February 2006

The sweats is one of my most prominent traits... Sometimes I used to have to change my clothes twice in the middle of the night. Also I usually get the start of a small migraine before the sweats start. I am literally soaked form head to toe in 5 minutes... One dr. also mentioned to me I was going through early menopause that was three years ago. I am 30. Those signs for me are being glutened and on the verge of being very sick. I have been sick since 7 and have been gluten free for three years.

ohmygosh i get the sweats too and the headaches but not as bad

i hate having the sweating issue though! im a teenage girl and i wish i didnt have to worry about it its so annoying!

i ended up having to get botox shots under my arms to stop the sweating there (ask your dermintologist they can also do hands, feet and other places sometimes)

but i still sweat more than usual in other places

i wonder if theres some way to fix it!!!??

Hi, I don't have the sweats but,I was diagnosed back in March by biopsy. Before I was diagnosed I almost never had headaches,if I did I could almost think them away. The last couple of weeks I have been getting headaches,so I was wondering the same thing as you. Were they being caused by gluten withdrawl. The headaches aren't really bad but I get them almost everyday.

Makes me wonder if it's possible though.

Drenching night sweats can also be caused by babesia or malaria. I have babesia ... it's spread by tickbites and is typically a co-infection of Lyme Disease.

I don't know if this is an issue at all for you, but since it's generally overlooked (it took me 35 years to get diagnosed!!!), I thought I'd mention it.

If you were going through early menopause, your cycle would reflect the hormonal changes.
