Pins And Needles?
0

6 posts in this topic

I've gotten a celiac panel and I'm awaiting the results but I was curious about something.

Occasionally entire sections of my back will get all tingly, like pins and needles, and then go numb for a few minutes.

Could that be related to a celiac induced vitamin deficiency? It's been happening on and off for about two years or so.

Also, I cannot stand up from a sitting or laying down position without getting dizzy and feeling like I'm going to fall over.

I'd love to pick up some supplements for a vitamin deficiency if that would help.

Thanks for the thoughts.

The pins and needles feeling is one of the many possible symptoms of Celiac. I had it in my lower legs, arm, and face. It subsided gradually with the gluten-free diet--a helpful supplement to use would be vitamin B12 (sublingual). I used it for several months--it took about 18 months for the neuropathy to go away completely.

Wow!I never associated that with celiac.I sometimes get that same feeling but its on my scalp.It feels like thiers a bunch of bugs crawling around and when I scratch..nothing happens..it just keeps feeling that way.I had a negative blood test for celiac..but I know Im atleast gluten intolerant..will this kind of thing happen to people with only a gluten intolerance?

I was having pins and needles in my hands and feet and was getting dizzy when standing from a sitting/lying position (low blood pressure). In my case, it was electrolytes (sodium) due to a medication I'm on (indirectly due to Celiac). If vitamins don't solve it I would be tempted to get a basic blood panel done for electrolytes etc (including B12, iron etc.). Not sure about the Celiac connection but everything's inter-related so it's probably possible!

YES. Half my hand or feet would go numb for hours-- totally numb it was sooooo weird-- then I was diagnosed and I've never had it since. I didnt think it was related until I read about it and made the connection. We forget how everything is connected :-)

I know I have really low blood pressure. The nurses would always do it twice and than ask me with raised brows, "Is your blood pressure always that low?" They made it seem like a good thing, but when I was diagnosed with adrenal fatigue they said that was one of the symptoms.

Thanks for the responses. I always thought it was weird that the back thing happened. As soon as I get the blood test results back I'm going to go gluten free regardless of the results and see if it helps alleviate all my symptoms. We'll see what happens. With the thyroid disease, adrenal fatigue and possible gluten problems I don't know what symptom is for what disease! :blink:

    • 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.
    • Yeah the histamine thing hit home a bit for me, as it mentioned everyone has their upper limits on it...explains why green canned fresh tomatoes fine...overly ripe sweet ones....instant puking, and why I have to really limit anything the citric acid, lemon, lime, garlic, onion, etc to very small amounts. Sorta funny how that works. like everything has a invisible number and if they add up to above my limit I am puking Makes eating annoying sometimes lol.  OH bit of a thought, I RARELY make almond milk cause it leaves a almond paste behind that I only have one use for and if sales at the bakery are bad I am better off just buying the stuff at the store and drinking in moderation. ANYWAY I use the almond paste mixed with coconut flour, left over almond butter batches, xylitol, apple sauce, and a tsp of a extract of choice to make the almond butter mini muffins for my bakery. They are a bit of a product of recycled foods lol. Taste great, super moist, grain free, mostly sugar free, and I can eat them no problems...they also freeze for months.   Love making them with our pirate butter (butter rum), Cheese cake butter (dairy free cheese cake extract in the almond butter) or any of the others for that matter.  
    • Did you get any of your vitamin and mineral levels checked for deficiencies?  You don't have to be Celiac to develop deficiencies.   Peripheral neuropathy may be caused by deficiencies of B12, copper, vitamin E, B6, B1 https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4208100/ Not dreaming can be caused by B6 deficiency. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/11883552 Tachycardia may be caused by deficiencies of B1, B12, vitamin C http://www.livestrong.com/article/503879-vitamin-deficiencies-racing-heart/ Ehlers Danlos can be helped by calcium, magnesium, vitamin C, and others https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/15607555 And that funky color of your colon, melanomas coli, vitamin E deficiency https://www.researchgate.net/publication/22087649_Ceroid_enteropathy_and_vitamin_E_deficiency IMHO, doctors would rather treat the symptoms than cure the real problems. Hope this helps.

    • Absolutely nothing to apologise for Awol. I'm sorry for getting on my sugar hobby horse. In any case I'm a dreadful hypocrite, cutting out fruit juice but still indulging cravings for gluten-free cheesecakes and the like I wish I had some advice for you. Bone broth helped me, I think it can help leaky gut, maybe worth a try?  Dr Fasano's diet could be another option?
