Mouth Ulcers A Symptom

Recommended Posts

Do you get blood blisters in the mouth that come and go and vary in size and usually come in groups and sometimes the epiglottis is sore too? Is this a symptom of gluten intolerance?

Thanks,

Leslie

Yes. Yes. Yes.

I get the tingling, sense of swelling, and breaking out in the mouth before any of the other symptoms arrive. It is my first clue to get back home where I can deal with the gastro stuff. The sores in my mouth range from the white canker sores across the gamut through red painful places to actual splits or rivers in my tongue. I'm not sure which is the most painful. I have talked to others who get a similar thing as well.

I am sorry to hear that you go through that. Mine is different. I know I have a gluten sensitivity because the pain in my stomach and other gastro symptoms went away immedicately. But 10 days later and I have a crop (first time in 10 days-was almost constant and bigger ones)of small red blood blisters, small pinprick size and two more ant bite size, but unlike I've heard elsewhere, they are blood not canker. Help? It seemed a systemic outbreak as my stomach is a bit upset (first time in 10 days) and I am bleeded from the other end too. I see the asthma specialist March 2 ( began as a Larygopharneal reflux problem) and I'm afraid 1) The testing will be off gluten 6 weeks and 2) It's something else (maybe worse). Does it take more than 10 days for these symptoms to go away? What do you think?

Worried to death!

Yes, it can take much more than 10 days for the symptoms to go away. I had an accidental gluten ingestion in August and am just now down to the last two or three spots healing. Usually the mouth sores come and go for a while before finally completely healing. I get both the canker sore type and the red painful ones.

Is there any chance that your spots are similar to petichial (sp) hemorrhaging? I get those little pin prick size (and sometimes a little larger) on my body after having an incident. The doc has me on B vitamin injections to help since in my case it is apparently caused by a problem with the nerve endings.

I hope that your problems are all celiac related and will heal up over time. Many of us have asthma and other problems especially at the beginning. My throat closes up and my tongue feels as though it is too big. I get so frustrated when I strangle on my own saliva. After being gluten-free for almost two years, it only occurs rarely when I accidentally get into something.
