Hi,

I haven't posted on here in a couple of months. I am still not feeling all that great at 12 and a half months of the gluten free diet. I guess compared to where I was, I am better. For nearly four months I could not even get off the couch I was so exhausted and I wasn't even doing anything to make me tired.

My question is this: Has anyone with Celiac noticed a sensitivity to the sun? I never had one before but now it seems if I am out in the sun for five minutes my skin becomes red like it is irritated and it will feel warm for hrs after. I thought it may be due to a medication I was taking. I am only taking synthroid and xanax for bad anxiety but neither of those say anything about taking them and staying out of the sun.

It just seems like my whole body has changed or is changing, Really bizzare. Thanks for any replies.

Yes. I have always been sensitive to the sun, to both the light and heat, I think. But I also know that yeast overgrowth can do it too.

That being said, it doesn't mean your symptoms are "normal", and are to be ignored. I am not aware of any specific conditions which might cause it though. Does it occur only in certain areas of the body?

It mostly happens on my forearms and knees. They feel really warm and get red. I always thought I might have Candida because I have so many symptoms still. Swollen glands under my jaw, joint pain all kinds of weird things.

There are other autoimmune diseases that can cause these symptoms. I think Lupus has that among its symptoms. Although I am not one of those people who dont believe in Candida, I do think that its important to rule out all other possible problems first especially because candida symptoms are so vague and common symptoms of other diseases. I would see your Dr.

Interesting. My forearms would get tingly, very warm, and red. Usually just a minute or two in the sun was enough to start it. But, my face was also very sensitive to the sun.

Candida symptoms do vary wildly from person to person. I had shoulder pain for years, and believed it was from an injury which hadn't healed right. Turns out, it was candida making the joint sore, and it had infected the joint at the time of injury.

Many of the symptoms I had, were not obvious signs at all. Frequent nosebleeds, dry, rough skin on knees and elbows, constant fatigue, sensitivity to light/sound, migraines...the list is practically endless. Gluten was also causing some of these same symptoms, which further blurred the lines.
