Snoring As A 1st Symptom Of Gluten Exposure?

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone.

I'm curious as to how unique my symptoms are. I find that every time I suffer an accidental gluten exposure, usually as a result of eating in a restaurant, that my first symptom is that I will snore and wake up repeatedly that night and the next. My suspicions are always confirmed on days 3-5 after the exposure when I will experience a range of gastrointestinal symptoms. I generally do not snore otherwise, so when I do, I know that I'm going to be miserable a few days later. Do any of you experience anything similar?

Thanks


Life is to LIVE, not to suffer. Make the most of it, and have some FUN, regardless of your situation.

I have had this happen when I stop and think about it. My nose gets clogged up and then of course I snore and sometimes wake myself up! Otherwise I don't snore as far as I know. At least that is what I have been told.

My misery starts sooner when glutened however. Usually that very night my elbows get sore and I get restless leg syndrome from old scar tissue acting up in my low back. I have to do yoga and piriformis stretches to sleep and at its worst take ibuprofin which always worries me since I have had real kidney issues. Taking bromelain/papain regularly as well as nattokinase really takes down the inflamation (and scar tissue) in a pretty effective and safer way however. I also use valerian before I retire which helps me relax. And then there are of course all those detox herbs I have mentioned elsewhere in a variety of posts--whihc really do help quite a lot. Just have to make sure I get to them which sometimes is difficult unless I am determined.

Diagnosed celiac sprue as infant: failure to thrive & pneumonia-back on grains age 4. Began herbs 1971 combating chronic kidney disease/general ill health 1973. Avoid wheat family and "allergens" by 1980. Late 80's doc. diagnosed candida: cave-man diet. Diagnosed degraded myelin sheath 2006; need co-enzyme B vitamins. Discovered celiac fall 2007; finally told diagnosis as infant. Recently found I am salicylic acid intolerant. Ironically can't tolerate most herbs now. Can now eat brown rice & other gluten-free grains (except corn) & even maple syrup & now homeopathic medicine works! Am still exploring the shape of this elephant but I've made progress!

This is wierd as it happens to me too, but I've never put two and two together until now. I've always had reactions to gluten foods, and now it sounds like snoring is one of them! I suffered from hayfever as a kid, and drinking certain beers used to bring on a hayfever like reaction and I'd snore that night. Wine never seems to bother me.

Now I'm gluten free(ish) my wife might get a good nights sleep!
