I'm Too Hot Or Too Cold, Chills, Never In Between Today!

Ok, I've not been yet diagnosed with anything relating to celiac but I have my doc appt on Friday and will request the specific blood tests to be done. Today I can't seem to get to a normal feeling temperature. I have my legs covered up and my feet are sweating (too hot!!) but if I put my fan on I'm way too cold! I get chills and goose bumps all over if I have my fan on. I can't get comfortable and I don't know why. I did check my temperature and it's perfectly normal today (which is odd since for over a year I've had eleveated temperature in the evenings/nighttime). I'm bloated feeling and always a little gassy. I just ate ice cream about a half hour or so ago and as I type this I'm starting to get nauseated and it feels now like I'm getting more bloated which is causing the nausea. I had a sandwich about an hour or so ago (wheat bread). This is happening more and more day by day I've noticed. I tend to always eat wheat with any meal, and have for many years.

 

I have what I truly believe is DH instead of palmoplantar pustular psoriasis. (mostly same symptoms but poss caused by celiac). I've already posted a lot of my health problems in other threads I've recently started but I need to know if this temperature things is normal?! I cannot sleep without a fan directly on my head and body, otherwise I wake up soaked in sweat, even a nap during the day. Been like that for about 2 years. But today the temperature thing is out of control. My arms are cold with goose bumps but my main upper body and head feels too warm like I want the fan on. My legs are chilly and frozen yet they are too warm and my feet are sweating. Yuck! I don't know if this is somehow a new manifestation of gluten intolerance.. I tried searching this forum for "hot and cold" but the search was fruitless. I feel like I'm going to go insane! If I cover up my arms, i immediately get too hot yet my arms still feel cold. Is this considered a "neurological" symptom?

HI,

 

try searching for "night sweats". there are some threads about them.  Maybe something in one of them will help.

For years pre-diagnosis -- the only way I could describe the crazy temperature fluctuations I felt was that I had a broken thermostat -- I'm tired now -- but will re-read your post and try to give a more detailed answer in the morning.

the only way i know ive eaten "the wrong thing" is because i go absolutely freezing cold, get the chills, thankfully since ive gone gluten free i dont get the bloating any more. i hate getting wrapped up though because then im too hot!! it happened last night when i had some popcorn - think it was the soya!!!

 

it could be a gluten symptom or could be a thyroid problem -although they do tend to go hand in hand, id mention this to your doctor when you go and get them to check it out.

I don't know why this is, but I definitely experienced similar things to what you are, just not to such an extreme. Being gluten free I've experienced far fewer of these episodes. Notably, dairy seems a likely culprit for these reactions in me too.

 

What you have sounds worse than how I was though. I would described it as feeling like I was getting the flu, mildly icky all over, and getting randomly hot and cold, but of course the thermometer always showed my body temp was fine even though I felt like it wasn't.

 

Since I felt like it was flu-like in nature, and since finding out I have celiac disease, I've assumed it was a more or less regular bodily reaction to the bombardment of antibodies being produced. It's how your immune system reacts to illnesses that usually makes you feel sick, not the illness itself, (at least until an illness starts to cause serious damage.)

 

In any case, you say you eat wheat with every meal, but that's normal. And you're getting it from more sources than you probably think. For instance, your ice cream probably has wheat in it or enough traces of wheat to make you sick too, ignoring the dairy.

I ended up falling asleep and when I woke up about 2 hours later all that crazy temperature fluctuations were gone. So, I'm not sure what happened. I was so relieved when I woke up and realized it was gone. i wonder if it was from lack of sleep from the previous 2 days. I really didn't get much quality sleep during those days, had insomnia pretty bad. If I did fall asleep, I woke up very often during the time i was sleeping. But I had never experienced that kind of reaction to lack of sleep before. Thank you all for your replies. :)

    • I don't know what you drank or where.... so here are a few thoughts. - sure, a dive bar might have dirty glasses and serve a cocktail in a beer glass?  But a nice reminder place, with a dishwasher, should be fine.  If it's a sketchy place, Stick to wine, then it's served in wine glasses that aren't used for beer or bottled ciders in the bottle.   - ciders on tap might, just a slight chance, have an issue.  Because of beer on tap, mixed up lines, etc. - you may have a problem with alcohol - you may have issues with The  high sugar content of the drink.  I know I have similar issues if I drink serveral ciders of extra sugary brands - are you positive it was a gluten-free drink?  Not this " redds Apple" pretending to be a cider - it's beer with apple flavor.  Or one of those " gluten removed " beers?  
    • Hi Stephanie, I'm also from the UK, I've found this site more helpful than anything we have!  As already mentioned above, in my experience it could depend on what and where you were drinking. Gluten free food and drink isn't always (not usually) 100% gluten free as you may know, maybe you have become more sensitive to even a trace of gluten that is probably in gluten free food/drink. Is it possible you have a problem with corn, particularly high fructose corn syrup that is in a lot of alcoholic drinks? This was a big problem for me and the only alcoholic drinks I can tolerate are William Chase vodka and gin. I contacted the company last year and all their drinks are 100% gluten and corn free, made the old fashioned way with no additives, so maybe try their products if you like the occasional drink and see how you get on. If you drink out, not many pubs sell their products but I know Wetherspoons do and smaller wine bars may too. l was never a spirit drinker but I must say their products are absolutely lovely! Very easy on a compromised gut too considering it's alcohol. I second the suggestion on seeing a natural health practitioner. I've recently started seeing a medical herbalist, as I've got nowhere with my now many food intolerances since going gluten free last year and I've noticed a difference in my health already. 
    • Sorry for the very late reply and thanks for the replies, I didn't get a notification of any. In case anyone else comes across this and has been wondering the same as I was, I did try a vegetable broth and I did react to it in the same way as if I'd eaten the vegetables.  As for the candida, I've been using coconut oil and am seeing a medical herbalist for this and leaky gut. It's only been a few weeks but I've noticed an improvement all round.
    • What did you drink and where did you drink it?   NOTE if you drink something at a bar using their glasses your asking for trouble BEER IS EVERYWHERE in most bars and a CC hell.   If it was at home and a non grain based liqour then I would be really concerned that it might just be alcohol. I personally can not really drink much of anything any more. I love rum, and I cook with it sometimes in sautes. I also have rum extract/butter rum extract/and rum emulsion I use in shakes, homemade keto pudding/ mixed into dishes. and even add some to drink to give it a rum flavor lol.
    • I can only think of two things, 1 something you put on your potato was contaminated like the butter container could have crumbs in it or something like that as mentioned before, and you could be having a reaction to dairy or what ever was put in it.......IF it was just plain potato and you reacted with bloating and cramping you might have a carb issues, tad rare and most associated with additional auto immune diseases but could be in which case a diet of fats and protein would be your answer much like it is for me now days. What all have you eaten in the privous 8 hours including beverages, condiments, spices and foods?
