Itching And Sweating After Reglutening Myself

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

i have nit yet been diagnised with celiacs but suspected i may have it due to having many of the symptoms, i had been glutem free for about 2 weeks but the withdrawal symptoms were becoming unbearable. 30 minutes after eating gluten my withdrawl symptoms had improved but ive been very itchy, sweaty, hot, sneezing along with a runny nose.

obviously im going to go and get tested propperly in a few weeks but does this reaction suggest i have celiacs??

Sounds more like an allergy to me. If you want to be tested for Celiac, you need to continue eating gluten until all testing is finished.

Yup, Sounds like an allergy to me too.  Here's a link providing information for a gluten challenge.

Thanks for the replys guys. The itching etc only lasted for an hour or 2 just after i ate the gluten last night. today though my sinus and throat mucus problem seems to be worse than it was before i glutened myself yesterday and also the kind of hazey fatigue feeling seems to be getting worse, along with random yawning and sneezing. 

 

im going to eat gluten for a few weeks then get tested but how easy is it to get tested for allergies in the uk as my gp said they dont test for allergies on the nhs much anymore?

Hi Dan.

 

Itching, sinus, throat, yawning, sneezing...these can be caused by Histamine overload.  There is a few threads here about Histamines.  Search for MCAD / MCAS.  It's just a thought but it could fit.  Some of us have to watch our histamines.

hmmm could be, the itching was kind of a one off thing though that only came about when i reintroduced gluten that night.

 

i have been tested for most things by my doctor such as diabetes, thyroid problems plus all the other routine things but all have come back as normal. The only common thing i haven't been tested for is allergies

btw im a 18 year old male and have had all these symptoms since i was about 15/16, also i haven't really changed much in terms of puberty (no facial hair, still quite skinny etc) since ive had all this, but im not sure if that's normal for me or not.

 

i will list my symptoms incase anyone has any ideas

my symptoms are;

 

slow healing wounds

fatigue

low libido

excessive thirst

excessive phlegm/ sinus problem

excessive urination 

white spots on nails

red nose

random yawning and sneezing every now and then

cold and tingling hands and feet

forgetfulness 

poor concentration

mood swings

irritability

muscle aches

bad lower back

no morning erections 

slight gyno

diarrhea / strange stools plus i seem to go about 3 times a day.

also my testosterone levels was on the low side of normal

seem to gain fat on face and stomach easily.

Problem with a lot of your symptoms, as you know, is they could be a LOT of things.  I'm not sure where you live but going to a clinic like Mayo where they check every nook and cranny all in one place might be a good idea.  Do you have bad stretch marks on your stomach/thighs?

Im from south west england, and its proving a bit of a struggle just getting tested for allergies through the nhs. I will look into clinics etc though in my area.

 

Nope no stretch marks, im not overweight its just if i do put on weight it will go to my face or stomach which could be normal but im not sure.

    • Hi All,  Recently (Nov 2017) I was diagnosed with NCGI by my consultant at hospital, this diagnosis has been after years of testing, colonoscopies, endoscopies and a 2 stone weight loss - it took the weight loss for me to finally be taken seriously by dr's. (I was tested for celiac around a year ago, all clear). I'm looking for advice to help me cope with this diagnosis, albeit I am thrilled that I potentially do not have anything life threatening (still undergoing tests, hosp visits etc.) but on the whole, I'm feeling hopeful that gluten may be the root cause to all my ailments and symptoms.  From diagnosis, I have cut out gluten completely, and apart from the odd slip up or cross contamination incident I have noticed a drastic improvement in my life quality and my time spent inside my bathroom walls has dramatically reduced. (TMI?)  The problem I am currently having is that I feel completely isolated from everyone in my life, I feel that me having to follow this strict diet is putting a burden on loved ones, especially when it comes to travel & eating out. (Was over in Berlin over the weekend, spent a good 5 hours over the weekend crying at being a burden to my BF restricting where we can eat, and also the fact that the majority of places we tried to dine, bar one or two, did not cater to the diet).  I thought I was coping with the diagnosis well, however the crying spell and fed up feeling with it proved I'm not. Does anyone have any good tips they followed and can recommend when they were newly diagnosed?    Xxx
    • Sorghum flour gives me massive cramps and diarrhea within 5 hours. I avoid it like the plague now.  FYI: Krusteaz gluten-free cornbread also has it as an ingredient, just found out the hard way.
    • Welcome!   Did you get skin biopsies?  Some celiacs are seronegative.  They might not even have intestinal damage.  Instead most of  the antibodies (and damage)  are in the skin.  I do not have DH, but suggest you scroll though the DK section and get tips.  Specifically on how to coach a derm properly on how to biopsy for DH (or find a celiac-savvy derm).   It is NOT the same for other rashes from what I have read.  I do not think a person with a gluten sensitivity can have DH because DH is celiac disease.  It just presents differently.   https://www.allergicliving.com/2017/07/11/celiac-thats-skin-deep-the-mysterious-rash-sparked-by-gluten/ https://celiac.org/celiac-disease/understanding-celiac-disease-2/dermatitis-herpetiformis/ I hope you find relief!

    • Thanks - this was my question, also very confused by conflicting advice. Think I may reschedule blood test, at present in 10 days, as although not gluten free, have eaten very little; two casserole mixes in 4 weeks, Trying to lose weight. Will have an endoscopy for Barretts oesophagus in April so makes sense to get the timing right. Think its unlikely to be positive but in a way hope it is! Ill for about a year now and the only bad blood result is folic acid, very deficient in spite of a very healthy diet, duodenum was inflamed at last endoscopy 3 years ago. I see two doctors as both are part time. First blood test was in Feb , second in Nov by which folate level had improved but still low. Both doctors have now mentioned celiac disease. Take Levothyroxine 150 mcg and TSH normal. Symptoms are more like anemia but no megoblastic anemia or iron deficient showed up. ECG normal Doc is also doing a thyroid panel, hopefully with T3 but haven't been thyroid tired; definitely more like anemia Was fine on Levothyroxine for 4 years. Apologies for rambling!
