Anyone Else Get Cold Often After Eating? Help!

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I wanted to know if anyone else gets like I do and if they have been diagnosed with anything for this complaint?

I often get cold atleast a few times a month it happens.....usually after I eat.I havent been able to pin point what food or foods it happens with.....it just seems to happen when it wants NOT SURE of any particulars.When it does happen though Its usually occasional, usually about 2 weeks after my period,and usually within 15 to 20 minutes after eating and I get real tired.

I was On the Body Ecology Diet in the Past and dont really know all of my issues.Im trying to do much homework on my own before my appt with a new MD/ND in March.

When I tried that diet, (and it was a lot of healthy eating) I kinda felt more tired,actually exhausted.I didnt get it......I felt worse eating real healthy. :( If anyone can help me it would be greatly appreciated

I am going to see an Endocrinologist tomorrow,I dont know what it will be worth.

I had TSH for the thyroid tested and they say Its normal

Dont know what else to do

I was told (by my DH and doc) that the reason you get cold after eating is because (especially if you eat a lot) all the blood is going to your middle, to help with the digestion process, and that means less blood flow/energy in the rest of the body. I get cold after eating ALL the time!

I get cold after I eat a big meal sometimes when I'm a little tired or run down and I've eaten a really big meal. At least once a week. My problem is that when my body gets too cold, it triggers some wierd response where all the fluid in my system starts draining out, so I have to pee every 1/2 hour for the rest of the day. So I try not to let myself get too cold after a big meal! Very wierd.

TSH testing is almost useless if you get tested by a normal doc. The range of "normal" TSH levels is absolutely ridiculous. You can research that. I've known a few different people who have very talented specialists that very finely tune the TSH medication. They said that unless their thyroid medication was extremely fine tuned they say they would be "completely off" and it would not help them.

I feel your pain about getting cold after a meal. Sometimes I do and sometimes I don't. I'm not completely satisfied that it is only just the extra blood flow going to the digestive system. I think there may be more to it. I"m no expert but I think it might be a possibility that a small allergic reaction (and I have many food sensitivities that range in severity) could cause the body to exhibit the same symptoms as that of being sick. When the body is sick it is using all resources to fight the infection, and I'm thinking an autoimmune response can be the same.

I think it is very interesting the connections involved here. The Thyroid and Adrenals regulate metabolism, body temperature, and stress. The Thymus is a sight for a large percentage of the body's immune response. I'm not expert on anatomy or physiology but I've heard some say the Thyroid is just the sac that sits on top of the Thymus. I would like to find out if there is interaction with the thyroid by the thymus or vice versa in the process of metabolism or food digestion.

I know this post is older, but I have not been on the forum in some time and I just starting to reacquaint myself.

I get super cold after I eat something to which I am intolerant: gluten and dairy (and apparently oats). It is a major, systemic "allergic" response for me: bone-chilling cold accompanied by joint pain and a low grade fever. It has taken years to figure that is the first signal. It feels like I have the flu, and all I can do is get under a few blankets and try to sleep it off. It may last a few hours or all day depending on the type of exposure I have had.

My celiac tests and biopsy were negative, but I have been gluten and dairy free now for just over a year. It is now very clear that the cold symptom is directly tied to my food intolerances.

I am new to this, but I was typing similar symptoms in the search engine and it came up with these posts. It has taken some time to get to the root of my intolerance, but cows products and now gluten have been pin pointed. The symptom I experience on occasions is the feeling that my blood is cold, almost feeling it run through my body making me cold all over. It normally hit in the evening, because it take a while for what ever I have eaten to take effect. I just can't warm up at all, even when wrapped up in bed.

This is a pretty old thread, so I am going to respond.  My mother has that cold feeling that lasts for about an hour daily.  She has been diagnosed with fibromyalgia.  If you seriously think gluten could be an issue, please get tested for celiac disease.

Good Luck!

My guess, and it is just a guess, is that your body may be 'diverting' it's energy to the digestive process.  If you are wondering about Celiac it wouldn't hurt to get tested. I had 'the most extensive diverticuli' my GI had ever seen prediagnosis. Interestingly enough when I had a scope done 5 years after diagnosis I had none.

My husband had a perfectly fine colonoscopy.... Then a few years later had perforated diverticulitis and was a few hours from death when they did the surgery. Those diverticuli can pop up fast!

    • I have had rolling food intolerance issues and stuff crop up for years....but this time it was seemly triggered by a cold.  I got a cold this weekend standard fever, stuffy nose, coughing gunk up, head pressure, random dizzy spells etc. Anyway I was eating on my chia seed rotation before getting it just fine...but about halfway into my cold I started having vomiting issues after eating. I assumed this was the cold perhaps it was instead a flu. But I got over it now with just a bit of congestion and sore throat left BUT I noticed a pattern in my food diary and confirmed it yesterday...within 30-60mins of eating anything with chia seeds I am puking ....... it seems I got a new intolerance to them? I found this odd that it was seemly triggered by the cold. I guess it could have happened with the compromised system and fever. Has anyone else had a new food intolerance crop up after a cold?
    • Thinking I saw this earlier on another post....anyway I do have a thought on this. I get little blood blisters and sores in my mouth, and on my tongue from things I ended with allergies to. With celiac being a autoimmune disease it can sometimes effect your immune system, like make you more prone to random food allergies, histamine issues, food intolerance issues, and sensitivities. You might want to keep a food diary and mix up what you eating avoiding foods you have been eating for up to a week changing out sauces, oils, spices completely and see if you notice anything. If I eat anything with corn I get blood blisters in my mouth by example, a high PH food like if I use a undiluted vinegar on something had in the past giving me little sores...not had this happen in awhile. In the food diary keep track of the sores, body temperature, stool habits, how you feel, etc. Every little detail and see if you find some connection with foods you eat. Try a lower histamine diet perhaps if it is related to that.
    • Hi been diagnosed as celiac over 2 years ago have a bad episode at present with tongue and swollen sore nose looks like little blisters has anyone else had these symptoms and if so what made it stop please any advise would be fab 
    • As mentioned above is true, I used to love fruit I got other AI diseases and some other issues that prevent me from eating fruit but I am a freak lol. ANYWAY since your new I will link you the newbie 101 threads. I would be more concerned with hidden gluten in your old condiment filled with crumbs, your pasta strainer, cutting boards and and scratched pots in your house then say the banana you got at the store....peeled off the outside that might have been touched or handled by anything else and eaten the safe clean insides lol....banana come with their own wrapper perhaps the safest bet, funny they used to give celiac babies a mostly banana diet before they understood this disease well.

    • Some people can be asymptomatic, I know a few celiacs like this. Needless to say, this doesn't mean that gluten isn't still wreaking havoc in your intestines.
