7 posts in this topic

Thanks again everyone! I'm now trying to figure out my red flushed face. It comes and goes and now has happened after the "lasagna" incident. But here it is 5 days later and eating (not every meal ) will bring out a red flushed burning face and lips........of course like an allergic reaction? Can't link it to dairy cause I skipped that today, too......help!!!

I used to get that when I would have sugary drinks and it was before I was diagnosed. For me it was when I also had bad bacteria in my stomach and I think the sugar would make it react. Maybe try to keep track of when it happens also wouldnt hurt to do a cycle of some anti-bacterials like raw garlic, oil of oregano type of thing. once i got rid of the bad bacteria red face stopped.

Rosacea can do that also--- another autoimmune disorder! Nightshade vegetables have caused some irritations of the skin .

For me at times I can eat a food my itself but when I add another food with it something weird happens & I have a terrible reaction..... go figure exept I'm very sensitive to planet earth......

I get a different kind of flushed face (just a feeling of heat) which I can't figure out either, but I've been reading up, and here are the results of that research. Don't be alarmed; I'm not suggesting that any or all of these apply to you. They're just possibilities.

Niacin overdose (last paragraph; seems unlikely): http://www.merck.com/mmpe/sec01/ch004/ch004d.html

Hypoglycemia (more likely me than you): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reactive_hypoglycemia

Burning mouth (hope this isn't it): http://mayoclinic.com/health/burning-mouth...ECTION=symptoms

Suspect that one of the suggestions already posted probably is right, but just wanted you to see these. I like to think that none of them are likely culprits, but you never know. Good luck.

Oh, I know this one!

This is a food allergy reaction to MSG, sulfites/ sulfates and nitrates/nitrites-- in my case at least. There may be other things that do this to you guys in particular, but for me these are the culprits. It can actually feel like a sunburn and it shows up roughly 20-40 minutes after eating whatever it was. It might last a couple of hours.

This can actually be the beginnnings of a serious allergic reaction and it will get worse. I would put in a serous effort to figure out what it is you are reacting to so you can eliminate it. These things are in processed foods.

Go to about.com and check out these three allergies-- they have a list of common foods these things are in.

Well, you have to figure out which chemical is the culprit.

Start with msg. You can buy it (the actually sell it as a flavor enhancer) or you can get a soup or a fish sauce that has it in it and eat a little bit. If you get the reaction, then you know.

The same for nitrates and sulfites. If you go to the about.com site for food allergies and search these, it gives you a list of the foods that have them in it.

Nitrates are in most lunch meats, for example. Sulfites and in vineagar, wine, dried fruit, etc.

You might have more than one-- I have the holy trinity. Of the three, sulfites are probably the most dangerous, but msg is pretty bad too.

Good luck figuring it out!

    • I have never had bone issues or anemic.  Honestly nothing.  If anything my energy levels have dropped since going gluten free, not the other way around.  I attribute it to the anxiety and mild depression caused by the diagnosis.  Before that I was extremely happy, healthy, with absolutely nothing to indicate anything at all is wrong.  The doctor told me that I don't need the additional test... I don't know why.  I guess the blood work was enough for them.  I requested that they send me the blood test results after the second doctor didn't give further insight.  But it will be a week or so before they arrive.  It's just so incredibly frustrating.
    • I went into menopause at age 42. I didn't know I had celiac until I was 56.  Now I know why my menopause was so early. 
    • Have been dealing with splinter hemorrhages on three of my toe nails since February. I did go to my doctor who rightly so did a very complete blood work-up ruling out other diseases such as lupus and RA and referred me to several other doctors to make sure that it was not cancer, endocarditis, or something serious. I went to the doctors.   I have done some research on vitamin deficiency and it seems that some link splinter hemorrhages to vitamin C deficiency. For the past 2 1/2 weeks I have been eating 3 clementines a day (in addition to the usual multivitamin that I take) and it seems to be helping the splinter hemorrhages. One has grown out and not returned. Visited my GI doctor today and talked about malabsorption of nutrients as a potential issue. We are doing more blood work and checking nutrient levels.  I have to believe it has something to do with the celiac. Sorry I don't have a better answer, but like you am trying to figure this out. Please let me know if you find any answers, and yes, be sure to check with your doctor to rule out anything serious.
    • You only need one positive on the celiac panel.  I tested positive only to the DGP IgA and had a Marsh Stage IIIB intestinal damage.   Good luck!  
    • Welcome to the forum.  First, you need to get copies of your celiac test to confirm you actually had it done and what the results were.  Second, to confirm a diagnosis, you must obtain biopsies via an endoscopy.  Were the doctors gastroenterologists?  Third you need to research  celiac disease.  Yes, you can be asymptomatic, but could still have instestinal damage as the small intestine is vast. here is a good place to start:  http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ You might think you are a silent celiac, but ever been anemic?  Had your bones checked?
