I had been doing so well but unfortunately, something got me.  I am going through the GI stuff, joint pain, etc.  What lingers is the DH and low grade fevers.  I will run one for several weeks after a glutening.  Does anyone else get this and is it because of inflammation or just from having an autoimmune disease?  I have a friend with lupus and one with MS and they both run these fevers.  I asked my gastro and he didn't know.  He just told me to take Tylenol.  Go eat gluten free and take Tylenol.....Boy, do I wish it were that easy!!

How long have you been gluten-free?? In the early days I'd get a slight fever if I got glutened, but it seems to have stopped. I've been gluten free for a little over 2 years now. I found taking an Advil and a hot shower seemed to knock it back for me. I still get the joint pain part, but the low grade fever thing seems to have stopped a while ago.

Thanks Josh,  I've only been at this since January.  I was previously gluten free for about a year and a half and then a doc convinced me that it was all IBS.  I ate gluten for a few months all along thinking it was only IBS.  Went to another doc and had high liver enzymes which led me to the gastro and the official diagnosis.  - I guess I just have a lot of healing to do. The fevers just really wipe me out.

It hits us all different. Just keep at it and don't get discouraged; you're gonna get glutened here and there. You just have to find what gets your through it. For me it's what I told you, with some rest and relaxation thrown in and caffeine to give me the energy to get through it. If you need support, we're all here for you!

Oh MO!  What did you get into, Young Lady!  :wacko:

 

I have no wisdom, just want to say "I hope you feel better soon!"

Awww, so sorry you have to go through this.....

 

I got glutened recently again too, it's no freaking fun!!! I had the fevers last fall but they seem to have gone after nine months gluten-free. I hope. So hopefully yours will subside soon. Gotta love the 'just take a Tylenol' advice. My GI's is 'just take an Immodium'!

   Wow, I thought I was the only one who got the low grade fever. I've been gluten-free for 4 years, but for me it depends on how much gluten I ingest. I once went to a "gluten-free" restaurant--clearly that was a lie. I got the most excruciating pain. The migraine was so bad I wanted to go to the emergency room, pain was unbearable, of course bloating and nausea and the fever. I'm so scared to eat anything now because I know I'll be in so much pain. Sorry to hear that you're going through that. But I'm so amazed that being glutened can cause a fever. I wonder why. How is that connected with Lupus or MS? Hmmm...I have an appointment at the Celiac Center at Columbia University in June. I will be sure to ask these questions and will post when I know.

  Stay safe. Double check ingredients and cross-contamination. :-D

So I've been avoiding grain oils for fear of cc, and I've not been eating chips.  (Actually, not doign great after eating chips is part of the reason I'm doing this.) I found chips that are cooked in avocado oil. Of course I bought them! Afterall, even if they're not labelled gluten-free, they only have salt, potatoes, and avocado, all foods I eat quite a lot of.

Bah, of course I got sleepy and cold. I practically burned myself having a hot shower so long I made myself get out before the water started to get cold...it clicked for me that I had screwed up somehow, could easily be gluten cc on the chips as they also make flavoured ones, or maybe I just don't do well with deep fried things, some by-product of it or something.

 

Anyways, the long, near-scalding showers I go hand-in-hand with the flu-like feeling. Makes sense to me though. When you have a flu or bad cold, your immune system is also acting up. And I know there's been research showing that, for colds at least, the people who seem to have the most symptoms also show a more active immune system for the duration. So the idea is that it's not actually the virus that's making you feel so awful, but your immune system trying to get rid of it.

I have had a fever now and then when "something" was going on.

I've even noticed I get a fever from allergy attacks (before I figure out its allergies, not a flu, during allergy season).

I take a Tylenol, it helps. I eat and drink whatever sounds good (gluten-free, of course).

I also get DH outbreaks when I have a true virus. Ironically, that's how I figure out if it was a virus or allergies. Sad, but true.

Although I have not monitored it, I also get really cold when I am glutened. I also have an autoimmune condition (or two...). I have fibromyalgia and have been suffering from autoimmune hives since early December. Interesting... Next time I am unfortunate enough to be glutened I will take my temp.

I hope you feel better soon. So tired of "just take a Tylenol" type reactions. With my doc it's "take as much pepto and gas x as you need". Too bad I can't pour it over the DH I get on my face!! Ugh!

    • I think she wants you to be strictly gluten free and heal.  Not give you things to patch up the damage you are causing by not getting your antibodies down and healing.   I am sure  she expected that you would take your diagnosis seriously and eat gluten-free.  4 months after your diagnosis, your antibodies would have gone down better.  But you weren't eating gluten free.  Eat gluten free. Take your supplements.  Read about the correct way to get your iron up - B12, vitamin C, don't take with calcium foods, etc  
    • Hello! I'm hoping to get some advice from y'all about iron IV infusions. First, some background: I was diagnosed with celiac disease at the beginning of June this year (2017).  I had labs done in March and my serum ferritin was 5 ng/mL. Hgb was 11.1, which isn't all that low, but is still flagged as below the normal range. I took 325 mg ferrous gluconate supplements daily for two months, and when my ferritin was rechecked, it was down to 4. The doctor ordered a celiac antibody panel and all of the levels were high. Confirmed with endoscopy at the end of May. A month later, I left for a 2-month study abroad program in France (aka the land of bread and pastries). After returning to the US at the beginning of August, I finally went gluten-free.  At the beginning of September, I returned to my University. Almost immediately, I realized I was really tired and was having a hard time making it through the day without a nap. I finally had a follow-up GI appointment around September 20th with the PA of the doctor who performed my endoscopy (not the same doctor from March). During the appointment, I asked her what we would do if my labs showed an iron-defiency. She told me that we would either do oral supplements or IV infusions, depending on whether or not she thought I'd absorb the supplements. When the lab results came in on the online patient portal, she made no comment on any of the iron-related results, just sent me a message that my antibody levels were still quite high, that I needed to keep up a strict gluten-free diet, and that we would recheck everything in six months. My ferritin was down to 3, Hgb was 10.3, iron saturation 6%, etc.  I was concerned about those results, so I called the PA's nurse and left a voicemail asking what the plan was for getting those levels up and got a portal message back from the PA saying that my hemoglobin was slightly low and will get better over time as I cut out all the gluten in my diet, but that I can start taking supplements if I want to speed up the process. I know that the Hgb still isn't that low, but it seems like the ferritin level is more serious. I went back for an appointment with the doctor who first found the iron-deficiency back in the spring and she seemed a lot more concerned. When I brought up IV iron therapy, she seemed to think it was a good idea. However, she's a primary care physician through my school's clinic, so she can't give me infusions. She called the PA with the intention of finding out whether or not she would change her mind about infusions, and had no luck. Interestingly, the PA's nurse informed her that they don't expect me to be able to absorb the supplements right away, and would consider IV infusions after I've been gluten-free for another six months.  I've done a bit of research on the IV infusions and it seems like I fit the criteria. Based on my antibody levels, I'm clearly not able to absorb iron any better than back in the spring, when the oral supplements did nothing for me. I understand that once my intestines heal more, I'll start being able to absorb iron better and should be able to boost my levels with oral supplements. However, I feel like I need a solution that will help me much sooner. I have a very demanding course load this semester and I'm constantly exhausted. I fall asleep doing homework at least twice a week. My grades are suffering, my mental health is suffering, and my relationships are being tested. I still don't have an explanation for why the PA doesn't think IV infusions are appropriate and I don't understand it. I really don't know what to do next because I'm afraid if I try to talk to the PA again, she'll get annoyed. I know that was super long, so for anyone still reading, thank you for bearing with me!! Now for the questions: 1. Do you think iron IV infusions in the near future would be a reasonable treatment for me? 2. Do you have any advice on how to make them happen? And if you have any other advice that's relevant to my situation, I'd love to hear it!   Thanks so much, Sofie
    • I can tell you that last week, I picked up and delivered 30 boxes of Costco pizza to a hungry marching band.  I lived!  Seriously, just wash your hands after handling.  Ennis is right.  Do not take a big sniff of the boxes in case there is any residual flour.  It took days for my van to air out and I did lay some old beach towels to protect my interior as normally, gluten is not allowed!  
    • I just found a nicer compilation of her work, much easier to understand. She also makes the connection between Sleep apnea, vit. D and the gut. Maybe you will enjoy it too:  https://www.vitamindwiki.com/Handout+on+Vitamin+D+(Hormone+D)+and+sleep+-+Gominak+2012 She mentions autoimmune diseases in general but not Celiacs. But I think it all connects and makes sense.  You are right, no matter how a post is, someone might read it. I did. 
    • i looooove nuts.com.  i've already ordered all my nuts, etc, for holiday baking from them.  if you order (i think it's 65 bucks) enough, you get free shipping.  the nuts are so pretty, not all busted up and stuff.  they send you a little sample with your order (this time it was goji berries) also, i got pepitas and sweet rice flour.  they have added alot of new products.  i highly recommend them
