Heavy Breathing, Eyes Water, Clamy

5 posts in this topic

Sometimes if its been a while since I accidentally ate gluten, I breathe heavy for maybe 5 minutes and my eyes water. Its not an allergic reaction, almost like a minor panic attack. It isnt really a mental thing, I dont think about it, it just happens. After this happens I can have a lot of gluten the next day and it won't get this reaction again, until its been a long time. I don't know if I have full blown celiac or sensitivity. I am not allergic to wheat or anything else though. I also sometimes get a stye if Ive been glutened.

 

Do these things happen to anyone else?

Oh, I get styes.  I had never placed them in a gluten reaction category.  I would have to think about it.

Hi Buckwheat

Gluten alters my breathing - kind of heavy as if slightly laboured, not getting enough oxygen, sort of thing.

Also makes my heart beat heavily.

I know what you mean about it feeling like a panic attack, but it is in fact a gluten reaction - I think it is my body becoming stressed by gluten arriving in the system! I get it now with a hint of cc, so very sensitive. Pre - glutenfree it was all the time and was just how I was, if you see what I mean :( .

Have never had a stye, fortunately.

You mention in your title clammy (?) - is this as in hot?

Anyway, gluten (especially) but also other food intolerances give me a hot flush within a few minutes.

I guess that this too is a stress reaction to the food and I imagine it is caused by a rise in cortisol (stress) giving a hot flush.

I'm not diagnosed, but I experience the same thing - heavy breathing, yawning, my body acting like I just cannot get enough oxygen. Because I yawn so much in this attacks, my eyes water like mad. 

 

Never associated it with gluten, I was considering it might be related to salt intake.

    • Did you know that Milton's Craft Bakers makes an outstanding line of gluten-free chips and crackers? I didn't, but was recently lucky enough to get to try out their Gluten-Free Himalayan Salt Baked Chips and their Gluten-Free Crispy Sea Salt Crackers. View the full article
    • Dang!  If I lived that close to Chicago, I would definitely go to the University of Chicago's celiac center even just to hang out with some celiacs or celiac-savvy folk!  (Maybe visit Aunt Mary too....)  Consider a second opinion.  Some people spend more on their Friday night bar tab instead of paying for a second opinion (cash) if they went out-of-network (insurance).  Your current GI must suspect something (e.g. parasite).  Maybe he is hoping it will resolve on its own (frankly sometime this approach works), but that side pain for over a year is not normal.   Keep advocating.  😊
    • Cycling Lady, LMAO at IBeStumped!  So true. Yes, he is trying the band aid approach it seems.  That's probably the most frustrating thing of all.  So yesterday I get a call back from his office and they say to stop taking the Viberzi and switch back to Imodium!  I reminded them that Imodium didn't work, I had already used it 8 days with no changes.  His assistant informed me that that is all he can recommend at this time until he sees me at my next appointment which is 5/24!  I live near Chicago and I am about to make an appointment to go to the University of Chicago hospital which is the top celiac research hospital in the country.  Hopefully they can give me better answers.
    • 7Hi jen and welcome No-one can diagnose remotely via nterwe  posts but if there was such a game as celiac / gluten sensitive bingo, I would be calling 'House!' having read your account above... Lots of things fit the pattern as I'm sure your lurking has revealed.  It's a tricky condition to diagnose however so you may have a little wait before you join the coolest club in town and get your funky celiac membership card For now it's really important  that you stay on gluten. Keep eating it as accurate testing requires it. Ask your doctor to check the boxes for celiac testing alongside your liver blood tests. There should be enough in your history to get this without hassle but if they're reluctant INSIST and don't be afraid to assert your reasonable suspicion and wish to clarify and exclude. A good liver specialis will be aware of the possible links so you should be ok. If not gt second opinion. Ask for a full celiac panel as there are variety of tests. Find further info here There's a lot to take in,  but be positive, I think you are on the right track and if so, you could soon be feeling better than you ever thought possible!
    • Hello,  I am in a job that I travel every 3rd week...It gets challenging becuase many times I am doing audits of warehouses and they dont even have a cafeteria.  I usually bring gluten-free protein bars as a back up if I have to miss a meal and then eat when I get back to the hotel.  Just a suggestion because they certainly fill me up....Have a safe trip...Kelly
