B:

Once gluten free for a while, my night sweats went away. But remember, that I posted that I began peri-med. at about 35 and it lasted about 10 years. Well over that.

I perspire, while I am eating and not from spice. It is soo odd. Frey's Syndrome.

Maybe we dig too much on the internet. If we believed everything we read, we'd all be dead by now. And doctors hate us. <_<

^^^ That makes us even; I hate doctors! :P

I've got a variation on the night sweats. I've been gluten-free almost a year. I was sick about 9 years before going gluten-free. During that time, I was always hot. Even in the dead of winter in Minnesota, I was trying to find ways to keep cool. The problem was that I couldn't sweat. Even a little bit of physical activity overheated me. I remember reading these threads about night sweats last year and being so envious of all these people who could at least sweat!

Towards the end of last summer, I started noticing that I was able to sweat a little again. Now I can sweat pretty well (though there's not much need to sweat in January).

Starting about 2-3 weeks ago, I've been having some nights where I wake up soaked in sweat. The thing is, these are usually nights that I sleep well (I've had trouble sleeping ever since I got sick 10 years ago). So in my case, these night sweats almost seem like a good thing.

Has anyone else had sypmtoms like these?

HORRIBLE night sweats, only when glutened, and takes about 2-3 nights to go away. It's like my body is trying to get the gluten out of it ... one way or another!

I used to get really bad night sweats. At one point I was convinced I had lukemia because I did a frantic internet search and that's what came up. :blink: Now, I just get hot esp. in the mornings when I am getting ready for work (to the point that I'll stand outside while letting the dog out when it's 5 degrees and STILL be hot) but I don't have the night sweats anymore.

I get hot to the point of prickling on my scalp around 8 every night, even if I am working, I sweat profusely till around midnight and then I am just plain hot for the rest of the night.

I sleep with the Air con and a ceiling fan, no bedclothes, and sometimes I am still uncomfortable.

I am post menopausal, so its not that.

I am on thyroid meds, looking for an alternative at the moment.

Ok, I just wanted to update.

I have found that gluten did a re-visit of peri or menopausal symptoms. Since gluten free, those night sweats are gone. They will come back if I am glutened.

After being gluten free for almost two years, I found that I will have facial perspiration almost immediately after consuming dairy products. Which indicates to me that there is perhaps an allergy reaction to dairy. I am currently, dairy light.

I don't have the night sweating part particularly, but I have had odd bouts of sweating during the day before. Last time I got glutened, I was at a clinical rotation. I'm usually a cold person by nature so it was surprising to me that I was sweating. I was warm, but not hot. More like how one feels when sweating in all the creases of your body when there's high humidity in the air. But the air conditioning in the place was on full blast, and no one else felt warm. It was just me. A little while later, I broke out and had stomach problems, letting me know that soemthing somewhere had contained gluten.

I always used to have sweaty hands and feet but cold and clamy feeling. In my mid 20's I had bad night sweats and yeast infection problems. They kind of went away but I was never able to tolerate the heat. Just blow drying my hair made me sweat even in winter. Then pregnancy became a big trigger for other problems. After I was treated for low thyroid, I could tolerate the heat. My sweaty palms and feet went away after I went gluten free. I sweat when I eat dairy and it lasts for about a day. I was also very hot and sweaty again just recently when I went back on gluten for testing.

Sweating and not being able to tolerate the heat seem to be related to eating gluten, dairy and thyroid issues together for me.

I understand exactly what you're saying! I have been having hot sweats regularly for the past few years, and knowing Menopause is over, couldn't figure out why I'm the only hot one and my family is wearing sweaters to make me more comfortable. I can get about 3-4 hours of sleep a night and then I can't get back to sleep at all. It's a terrible feeling! Now that they found Celiac from a biopsy it makes so much more sense, I'm still learning what has and does not have Gluten in it, but I did lose 60lbs so far.

Thank You for Listening

I also wanted to add that my stomach is going thru hell right now because I'm trying to eat properly, with a Gluten allergy and a dairy allergy I don't know what is safe for me. Can anyone help me with this?

Thank You So Much

I too have had sweats and chills, dr put me on neurontin 300mg twice a day for about 3 months. It really worked well and stopped the sweating and freezing. I had a hysterectomy 4 years ago so thought it was surgical menopause. They did the hysterectomy to help with what they thought was shingles.

Now I have been gluten free for about 2 months and do not need the medication anymore. coincidence I think not!!!

I too had my uterus removed at 28 then my ovaries 3 years ago and when I sweat then I would get sick to my stomach first, so I knew it was coming but now that's all gone and if I get glutened I sweat from head to toe just not under my armpits lol wierd huh. ;)

But it will happen within an hour after being glutened and continue til the next day even throughout the night>so watch that u don't get glutned and this should discontinue .....mine did

Good luck in finding wht causes ur sweats !

I have hot flashes/night sweats AND periods when I am freezing for no apparent reason. I've yet to figure out why. I've had the latter for years and my doctor couldn't figure it out. I'm in menopause now so I guess that could explain the hot flashes. But then the food intolerances have happened to me about the same time.

I used to get them too after severe glutening binges. I was terrified for a long time that I somehow contracted AIDS or something because one of my idiot friends told me that was a symptom of it or that I had diabetes because my Mum gets them but blood tests ruled both out. I assume it was from glutening because it only happens then and it seems a lot of people have said the same thing.

One of the ways that the body helps detoxify itself is by sweating the toxin out, so it didn't surprise me to find that when I am glutened that I also sweat profusely. I have always sweated whenever I was sick and whenever I had an allergic reaction to anything, it is just another way that the body gets rid of all the bad stuff. Although yes it can also be related to other problems as well, so if you don't have other glutening symptoms when you experience the sweating you may have to look somewhere else. My doc. tried to tell me (pre knowing I was celiac) that I was having the sweats due to an early meno, but now that I am gluten-free my horomones are normal and I am back to having a normal (for me) monthly and no sign of meno, I still have the sweats whenever I am glutened. In fact its usually the first symptom. The other thing I noticed is that my mom is so scared of glutening herself that she sweats while she eats. Afraid that she will cc herself somehow. Just a thought that may be what some of you are experiencing as well. I hope that as she gains confidence in herself and the diet that she will do better.

    • I was browsing on QVC this morning and found they have a bread machine on sale.  It has a gluten free setting. Remember someone asking about them not too long ago so thought I would post a link to the item. Be sure to read the questions and answers at the bottom of the ad.  It is on sale for about $100 http://www.qvc.com/Breadman-2lb-Multi-Function-Stainless-Steel-Breadmaker.product.K44909.html  
    • Well, as a celiac the gluten causes your own body to flare with antibodies and mistakenly attack your body most people the intestines. (I also have it attack my entire nervous system and brain) Your antibodies can stay flared for weeks to a month or so with just a crumb, so cheating is not a option. The damage to your intestines will cause malabsorption for one, second the damage leads to food intolerance issues random allergies, the more damage and longer you go the narrower your list of foods you body can put up with will normally get, These can go away as you heal by the way in most cases, they will also come and go. I had the lettuce intolerance crop up for a month or two. I still have a whole list of NO foods you can check my profile to keep it simple. This disease if untreated can lead to other autoimmune disease, cancer, lymphoma, and we had a case were one member ignored the diet and had to get a emergency colostomy and a section of their intestines removed. Side thoughts, my body works best with fresh cooked veggies to the point of being mushy, I also find taking digestive enzymes makes it so I do not vomit. I take 2-3x times the dose on the enzymes and it works great. (Jarrow Vegetarian Enzymes Plus, and Papaya Super Enzymes, I take extra bromine when using vegan protein powder shakes.) As you heal there will be some wonderful options open up in the gluten free processed foods department, you will probably lose some of those veggie food intolerance issues after a year or so normally. I have lost a few myself and enjoy some I used to not be able to eat. I will give you the newbie 101 list and a list of potential food alternatives that might give you some hope to browse through.

        I also post some great recipes in the recipe section.
    • Solid advice. Wish that more people would consider that this might be necessary for some and not entirely paranoid. Could very well be airborne, but most likely culprit is something you're eating. That said, baking, construction/open drywall, farms/animal food and bulk/flour aisles in grocery stores are legitimate worries. I was recently having frustrating problems with random but minor flare-ups, and have eliminated almost all packaged food (even gluten-free) for a bit. It has helped tremendously. I hope that perhaps my sensitivity levels will calm down in a few years, but not being itchy and scabby is worth almost any cumbersome restriction. I think for me the problem has largely been to do with the use of oats in many dedicated factories (even gluten-free oats make me very, very sick). I came to this when lodging a complaint/notifying a company that I'd had an issue with one of their GFCO certified products. I figured that mistakes could happen, and could not imagine anything else I'd eaten that day could be a culprit (had only eaten veggies/rice/meat) so I contacted them to report it. Their response made me quite sure that the lot my food came from was fine from a legal/GFCO gluten-free perspective, but revealed that they make all their gluten-free products on the same line - which include granolas, oat flour etc. When I investigated it a bit more, I realized that many of the gluten-free products that I suspected were causing me problems (but had no real basis for why) were all made by companies that also make lots of gluten-free oat products. Previously, I had only avoided gluten-free products that contained oats as an explicit ingredient, and had never considered that the residues from gluten-free oats could be problematic. Unfortunately, now that gluten-free oats have been legalized in Canada, it is very difficult to find companies that do not use them in some capacity, which is why I axed most of the processed gluten-free stuff. Presumably, because the oats are considered gluten-free, there is no reason to clean the line or employ any allergen food safety practices from the company's perspective. While this may not be a concern outside of those who are super sensitive, it might worth considering if you are still having problems or have a known issue with oats. At the very least, avoiding most processed gluten-free foods (breads/flours/pastas/baked goods) seems to have helped me a lot, even if minor contamination with oats is not the true culprit. I would vouch for mostly sticking with rice, dry beans, root veggies and fresh corn (from the cob) as complex carbohydrate sources for a bit, even though it's a bit inconvenient.   
    • So I previously went to Buffalo Wild Wings and they gave me the gluten-free menu. I asked the waitress if anything is mixed into the fryers somehow with the ultimate nachos, since I read up that they don't switch out fryers for celiac customers, which is fine. She claimed there's no cross contamination happening there, as nothing goes in the fryers. I went back today to find out by the manager that they apparently deep-fry their corn tortilla chips from scratch, so I cancelled my order. But after rethinking, I asked if I could order everything except for the tortilla chips. She came back and told me there's yeast in one of the sauces for the nachos. Yeast is a toss-up, but it seemed to me like they were trying to get me to not order. Either BWW's is lying about their gluten-free menu, or the management was doing everything in their power to prevent me from eating there in order to not have a potential lawsuit. Has anyone felt this way when going to restaurants?
    • Hi everyone! I'm obviously new to the forums, but I'm also new to the idea of celiac/gluten free/etc.  Lemme give you the Cliff Notes version of my journey: 1992: I'm diagnosed with CFS/ME. It sucks and I'm tired and sick all the time. 2014: I'm still tired and sick all the time, so I decide to become a vegetarian. Maybe that'll help, right? I began getting deathly ill when I ate. Vomiting and diarrhea, everything I eat seems to be a problem.  I go to a doctor who runs a million tests. Nothing turns up. In among those tests is a celiac panel which has this result: no antibody detected and no serological evidence of celiac disease. No cause is ever found. I continue to suffer. Later in 2014: I notice that my stomach issues are triggered every time I eat a raw vegetable. I can eat bread or pasta no problem. Fake chicken? Great. Have a salad? I'm dying. This is a problem, as I'm a vegetarian. I nix the fresh veggies and continue to live my life. 2015: I'm diagnosed with Fibromyalgia. I realize that the problem with vegetables is worse than I thought. I can no longer eat cooked spinach, can't have lettuce on my sandwich, and stealing a single slice of cucumber set my stomach on edge for days. I'm becoming hypersensitive to veggies in food and protecting myself from their evil influence; my stomach thanks me. 2017: After a relative peaceful period, the stomach issues are back, worse. So I go to a new doctor (I've moved) and he recommends a colonoscopy and EGD (no labs). This was done yesterday. The full results will of course have to wait for the biopsies to be examined, but apparently there is scalloping "through the entire duodenum".  Doc told my partner that he believes I have celiac and discharged me with orders to go gluten free. Now I'm sitting here alternately considering drinking alone in the dark and throwing things--I guess I'm wavering between the stages of depression and anger on my trip through grief for my lost favorite foods. But here's where the confusion comes in...everything I'm seeing says that I should give up bread and eat more veggies, but veggies make me sick. Does anyone else have this reaction to vegetables? Meanwhile I'm thinking back to the labs done in 2014 and wondering if its possible to have a negative test and still be positive for celiac? Also, what actually happens if you DON'T go gluten free?
