I'm sure that I can not be the ONLY person that gets these things. It is like an out of control taste bud. It swells up and turns white/clear and HURTS like crazy! Anyone know what causes these? Mineral defiency/food allergy/dehydration/crazyness :lol: ? Any ideas.....thoughts....anybody share the pain?

I get these from time to time too, but I have never figured out why. At one point I thought it was from walnuts, but I eat those all the time now and so far so good. And I thought they were from eating too much citrus, but I haven't retested that one.

But, they do hurt. I used orajel in the past and tried to leave it alone until it healed. Usually only takes a couple of days. But, I'm not sure if orajel is gluten free. I'm not that savy yet. :)

It is probably an infected taste bud. I have gotten them from time to time too. I usually make sure to rinse with Listerine a few extra times a day to help speed healing.

Yep lol and when you have one of those little buggers it sure seems to be the ONLY thing you can concentrate on. It rubs on your teeth, rubs on your lips....rubs everywhere to make it sting! Geesh lol

I did find a little info on them...they are sometimes called "lie bumps" supposedly mom's used to tell their kids that if they lied...then that is what the result would be...... :lol:

Here are a couple of links of info....the people there didn't really come to any conclusion, but presented some interesting info.

I get them sometimes as well.. don't know if I really used to get them before going gluten free (too many things/symptoms to try and recall), but I want to say that I occasionally did.. I certainly have been getting them in the past month or 2 though... more frequently than I ever remember getting them

I didn't think of connecting them to food until I saw something in a post here (I think it was the long corn post by Rachel)... I looked them up on the net a couple weeks ago, and it seems that any one of a number of things could cause them (food related or not)... don't know if mine is a food trigger (I'm thinking maybe something acidic like tomato sauce but I don't know)..

I have had those for 7 or 8 years, better now. first was diagnosed/ lichen planus by dental surgeon, then to dermatologist / diagnosis of citricidal pemphigoid, he sent the swab to Mayo clinic. Dapsone has kept me more comfortable for several years, after going gluten free for almost 6 months & cutting out several foods I have been able to cut down the dosage considerably but still have to get liver panel evry few months. will see him wed. and will probably need to get tested then. Maybe he will order my thyroid test too, time for that again. No, I will get that order from my reg. Dr & get it all done @ same time!! so from my reading this could have been a warning for gluten intolernce (mouth sores is one of the symptoms) but I did not know it

and no one told me (none of my many Dr's, too many). Did none of you/ mouth sores (tongue, gum & cheeks not have these before gluten problems? :(<_< evie

Have you called your toothpaste and mouthwash companies to find out if their products contain gluten, corn soy or anything you know you are intolerant of?

I was shocked the other day to find out that Arm & Hammer Baking Soda toothpaste has gluten in it.

I used to get these all the time, but I haven't had any in years, since long before going gluten-free. The only thing I can think is that maybe brushing with peroxide and baking soda has had something to do with it.

When I first started doing it, my method was to dip the brush in a 50:50 peroxide:water mix, flick off the excess, then touch it to dry baking soda. Some time ago I switched to making a paste of coconut oil mashed with as much baking soda as it will hold instead of using dry baking soda.

This is highly economical, but the taste takes a little getting used to if you are used to the taste of toothpaste.

I've gotten those from time to time to. ...In my case, usually when I was eating a lot of candy or sweets. Mouth washes have helped speed healing, reduce pain.

I get these all the time. For me, too many sweets or spicy foods can cause it. I heard dipping a q-tip in witch hazel and dotting it on the swollen taste bud can help. Also, I've heard b-12 deficiency can make u more susceptible..not sure if its true or not.

BTW, I also get weird bumps at the back of my tongue, on the sides..especially if im coming down with a virus or if ive eaten something irritating...

I have been getting that for the past few weeks on and off and never with the same foods. Sometimes it happens when I haven't eaten. Mine itch! They are on the middle to back of my tongue.

Are you sure these are not caused by hidden gluten? The word sprue (as in celiac sprue) comes from a Dutch word for mouth sore. I had an episode of swollen tastebuds for weeks before I cut out the gluten. They were so painful I ended up cutting some of them off with a razor blade. Yeah, that hurt a lot too, but once the bumps were gone my tongue felt so much better.

I have had them but came to the conclusion that it had something to do with a vitamin deficiency. I would take my vitamins and then it would clear up.

I used to get them loads before going gluten-free. I get a lot less now, and no mouth ulcers either. For me, cutting out tomatoes was a big key, and I use a toothpaste which doesn't contain sodium laurel sulfate, which is supposed to irritate the lining of the mouth. I also get them if I eat loads of sweet stuff.

Does it feel like the whole front part of your tongue was burnt a little? I never attributed it to anything in particular, but it happens often. I can feel the bumps raised and it's kindof a stingy, burning feeling. I also have gottent he ones on the sides of my tongue way in the back that usually seems to precede a sore throat, but not always.

    • First degree relatives of celiacs should be tested every 2 years in the absence of symptoms & immediately if symptoms present since celiac can present at any age. Celiac affects every cell in the body & inflammation is common. My inflammation began in my lower back and the bend of my leg (on the back side of the knees). It progressed to literally everywhere. You name it, back, neck, arms, legs, ankles, hips, wrists, fingers. Excruciating pain as well as swelling. So excruciating that opiates didn't even phase it. I just had to bear it. I would take ice packs & use them until the area was pure D numb. You're never supposed to leave ice on that long but if I hadn't then I would have shot myself. I can not begin to describe the intensity of the pain. The last year before diagnosis, I was sure that within a year, I would be confined to a wheelchair for the remainder of my life. Now, 5.5 years gluten free, I can't tell you the last time I took a Tylenol or any other anti inflammatory. In fact, I'm not on any meds at all. Nothing.
    • Thanks for all that info and the links.  It would be such a relief if I could know what is causing the fever, and that maybe it will go away as I stay gluten-free.  Both my gastro dr and rheum dr said to still stay gluten-free even though I apparently don't have celiac.  They are saying to give it 2-3 months to see how I feel then.  My fever has been down to around 99.9 the past two days, instead of over 100 and 101 like it's been since February.  That is the most exciting thing so far.  My stomach is not as severe or bad, but certainly not great, and I don't feel out of the woods at all concerning that yet.  I still hope to feel a lot better as more time goes by without gluten....I hope.  I seem to get bloat and also discomfort in my ribs more in the evening, even if I ate the same thing at lunch.   I started a food journal.  I guess I need to keep being patient. My rheum dr wants to see the journal in October when I see her again. She said she loves detective work.  It sounds like we all need to become food and symptom detectives when dealing with this.  Now if we could only get an NCIS episode where they investigate how gluten can "murder" our stomachs, and figure out a cure for gluten issues, besides going gluten-free.  It actually hasn't been too bad so far, other than foods that you are iffy or unsure about with all sorts of weird ingredients listed in it.  The internet and this site here helps a lot with some of that.  Luckily there is a whole lot we can still eat, but corn and corn products are an iffy for me too at the moment, and my dr suggested trying to avoid soy, and that xanthan gum, and a few things like that. Only thing that has shown in my bloodwork so far is chronic inflammation that may mean an underlying autoimmune disease.  Ya, I've been hearing "it seems like something autoimmune" for the past few decades.  It'd kind of be helpful to figure out exactly what.  I'm so tired of being tired.  I am sure you all can relate to that.  You just want to wake up and feel good.  
    • HEB organics does not bother me at all. Their plain one has to be boiled before I can drink it so I tend to use it in moderation in cooking...it also has xantham gum which explained that issue. MALK gives me no issues (Local Only Brand I think). Used to drink something called Mooala but could not find it unsweetened after my UC dia.  Almond Breeze is next up but I can only drink about a cup of it before I start getting burping issues, silk bothers me the least but still causes some issues. Silk cashew is alright and I use it all the time with NO issues at all...but I use it in cooking and do not think I have ever used it without boiling it first either in a icecream base or mixing it in a soup, cheese sauce, or adding a bit to eggs for fluff.   Hmm there is one other brand of macadamia milk that dose not bother me and Good Karma Flax milk I have NO issues with....been a good 6 months since I had any though. http://malkorganics.com/products/   https://www.heb.com/product-detail/h-e-b-organics-unsweet-vanilla-almond-milk/1741526 ^ Two that give me the least issues  
    • Oh goodness me so do you guys bother to get histamine level diagnosed or do you just treat it as you did the food diary ? taking note of high histamine time of year/ season and diet into your seasonal food diet? I'm pretty good at rotating foods I've done that longer than I've known about my issues from a nutritional standpoint I rotated which is why until the gluten challenge derailed my immune system entirely. it was challenging enough to do that gluten challenge I am not really up for more testing. I have symptoms of IC, POTS, fibromyalgia, and now you reveal that yes histamine threshold are part of the celiac autoimmune party bag too. how do all branches of medicine not find this group the most intriguing group of people ever? Really?Or Do you just all avoid them and go on your merry way? Ennis - what almond milk can you drink ? the almond milk 3 we tried/ bought prior to making my own (had unlabeled ingredient  fortified and thickeners corn derived added. ) I was shocked to call and discover it had it in (not labeled as it was corn not top 8) it finally explained why the right elbow joint hurt but it was a small enough derived amount of derived  corn not to trigger the Full blast corn intolerance symptoms. For this reason and now the orange juice incident I'm really leery of unidentified corn or corn derivatives or highly processed any additive for they are prevalent in processed land.  
    • Yeah I have 2 stationary pedal bikes. I use one on the desk sometimes while watching a show and work out my arms. I keep one under the desk and pedal on it for hours a day, really helps with my restless leg issues and stress (just gotta keep moving or I start feeling like a panic attack is coming on trapped by life like a rat in a cage. If you need to know were to find the ground cocoa nibs look up crio bru, they sell it as a coffee replacement for $23 for 1.5lbs they have different origin and different roast levels so you can get different flavored cocoa nibs I get several and mix them up.
