Strange Sensation In Mouth

Rate this topic

<_<

I have NO idea what this is, as I've never experienced it before - but it's VERY annoying !! Last night's dinner was prepared by the other family member that is gluten sensitive. He's not *real* knowledgeable (ex: he thought spelt was a safe grain), but he does pretty darn well. I think I inadvertently got glutened though, despite both of us being careful. I had gas (so therefore, my 3 month old that I'm breastfeeding had painful gas too, and was pretty inconsolable). I also noticed pretty shortly after dinner the sensation in my mouth. The only way I can explain it is on my cheeks and around the front of my mouth near my lip (again, this is all inside my mouth), feels like there's a "coating" on it. It's not painful, but it does have a slightly grainy feeling. When I look in the mirror I don't see anything. I keep trying to rinse my mouth with water and running my tongue along where I feel it in an effort to get rid of the coating feeling, to no avail.

:huh:

Anybody ever hear of this ? What the heck IS this ??

I had a feeling like that all the while I breastfed my daughter except it also extended to the back of my throat. Eventually saw an ear, nose throat guy 'cause I was going nuts, but no one ever found anything. I still have odd 'mouth" reactions to food on occassion-(now I'm going through menopause) I think it might be hormonal. It's very weird, though. Hope it goes away for you soon!

You said "grainy". Does you mouth also feel dry? I get a very dry feeling in my mouth with certain foods that I'm intolerant to. Tapioca does this to me as well as some nuts.

No, that's the weird thing - it felt plenty moist.

The sensation has since gone away - I still have no clue what that was all about. Before it went away though, the underside of my tongue got sore - it kind of felt like the frenulum (the little string that attaches your tongue) felt swollen. I also got kind of a pimple between my right cheek and gum. I've gotten those before (have no clue what those are, either), but I just break it and it goes away.

:blink:

It's just to keep life interesting, I guess ! :lol:

The "pimple" was probably a canker sore...I get them occassionally. You may have had canker sores under your tongue too (canker sores can be like pimples, or can be open sores, or just sore spots)...considering the whole area has mucous membranes, it's not surprising it would react to foods you are sensitive to.

I've had canker sores before...I thought those always hurt ?? This wasn't painful at all.

Maybe they aren't canker sores then? I was told they were (I get those as well as the larger ulcers...and both come on quite suddenly.) I've found they don't hurt as much on the cheek as on the gums or tongue. When they pop they can be a bit more sore.

    • I'm a scientist, and I did a little research into the study. Looks valid and it was published in a respected journal.  http://www.gastrojournal.org/article/S0016-5085(17)36352-7/pdf The science looks solid. As someone who didn't have a super clean cut diagnosis before going gluten free, I'd love to see something like this become available. Then again, there's no doubt in my mind that I can't have gluten, so any additional testing would be purely academic. But like I said, I'm a scientist. I can't help myself. 
    • Update: I have tried calling the company several times and have emailed twice. I have yet to talk to a person on the phone and no one has emailed me back.    I did a little research and they were are already involved with a class action lawsuit about being labeled as salt free and one of the first ingredients is sodium chloride.  I am done with this shampoo because this whole company seems a little shady now! 
    • I've actually been glutened by shampoo with hydrolyzed wheat protein, and I wasn't even the one using it. It was my husbands! I swear I don't go around eating my husbands hair.  I am pretty sensitive though, so it's entirely believable that the trace amounts in his hair were getting onto his and my hands and then making its way to my mouth, etc. etc.  It was a slow and steady low grade glutening that eventually built up to something that I was able to recognize as more definitively "a glutening". Once we ditched the shampoo and I recovered, I realized that I'd been feeling it for weeks.  It's going to depend on your level of sensitivity, but even if you don't feel it, it could still be doing damage. Also... I second that. Starch is a carbohydrate, protein is a protein (obviously), there is no simple process that would convert one into the other. Also, as gluten is a protein, converting starch to protein wouldn't be expected to do anything to gluten ANYWAY.  Speaking as a biologist here. I call poppycock. 
    • I just want you to remind you that I just had a repeat endoscopy last week after my diagnosis some five years ago.   Even though my antibodies are still elevated, my intestinal tract has healed.  But why have I been feeling sick?  I have chronic gastritis.  Who would have guessed?   I do not drink (rarely), take any meds other than my thyroid replacement, and do not have H. Pylori.  That leave autoimmune as the most likely culprit.  I also have some other minor issues that I think is related to Hashimoto’s.  So, I am in an autoimmune flare-up, but celiac disease is not the cause of current my woes. My endoscopy results have validated that I have been doing a good job about avoiding gluten.  I can relax a bit now!   I think because the treatment for celiac disease is a burden placed on us, it can become overwhelming.  Sure, we all eventually master the diet and most of us go on to lead plain old normal lives, but if something is off, celiac disease is the first thing that many of us blame.  Actually, we blame ourselves, to be honest.  We have to remember that we are often dealing with other health issues too.   As far as hair, I buy gluten free shampoo.  It is from Costco and it says it right on the label.  Nice and inexpensive.   Do I really need it to be gluten free?  No.  I think the last time I swallowed shampoo, my mother was most likely bathing me and I did not heed her warning to keep my mouth shut (baby shampoo may not sting your eyes but it tastes awful!).   Like you, sometimes I think it helps to have one less thing to think about and that can be priceless.           
    • https://www.twinings.co.uk/hot-chocolate-coffee-other-drinks/hot-chocolate-and-malt-drinks/twinings-swiss-chocolate-drink Have discovered this drink - it's great, labelled gluten free and is also fortified.   I can't drink too much milk as I get bloated, but find it tastes really nice even made mostly with hot water and just a small amount of milk.  Thank you Twinings.
