Anyone Have Cold Sores And Unusual Symptoms After Being On Gluten-free Diet For 3 Weeks?

Recommended Posts

I was very happy after I started gluten-free diet and noticed marked improvement in many symptoms, however, as time (second week) went by I started getting things I've never gotten before and wonder if anyone else has had this experience. I now have a cold sore (haven't had one in many years), had skin/blister-type break-outs also, a few days with bad headache..anxiety showing it's ugly head, again (but not as bad). Does anyone know about this? Is this normal. Please reply.

am waiting for lab items to come and will have definitive description after findings

till then, self-diagnosed (my history and watching my dad) Celiac and worried in California

The skin break outs sound like DH. I will get cold sore type sores from lip products that have gluten, have you eliminated it from your toiletries, make up and such? You could have gotten CC somewhere along the line also, especially if you share your home with gluten eaters or have eaten at a restaurant.

YES! I got 2 cold sores right around the 3 - 4 week time frame of going gluten free too. I normally do not get them, but did also get them a couple weeks after I quit smoking (but that was many years ago). I think it's just our body's way of going through withdrawal. I also had the headaches.
