Sore Throat As A First Sign Of Glutening

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

So a few times in the last couple of weeks I've been getting adventurous with my food - trying new brands etc. When something didn't agree with me, the first sign I've noticed is a sore throat, like a mild burning sensation. This happened with :

* Gino Ginelli ice cream both times I had it ( Unilever brand, no wheat listed, no gluten warnings, only "modified starches" which should be non-wheat, and "glucose syrup")

* Nestle ice cream (Again no gluten mentioned, no warnings)

* Orgran gluten-free biscuits

After the sore throat is a sore stomach, and then d a few hours later, anxiety etc etc. Note I don't get this for other types of ice-cream, like store-bought no-name-brand chocolate ice-cream, or my own home-made biscuits so it's not lactose upsetting my stomach.

What I really hate is that these are supposedly "gluten free" items, no warnings listed. I can only guess there's some cross contamination with the product or in the original ingredients.

I thought the sore throat is interesting though, makes an early warning system for me.

Hi Marz!!

I have had a sore, scratchy throat and "burny" mouth/tongue for almost 2 years. Like all my other symptoms, no one could explain it to me :angry:

I definitely tie it to the gluten.Even drinking club soda hurt going down. :blink: At times, I felt like it would close right up.

It had started to subside, along with the D and anxiety, etc... (I am gluten-free 5 weeks) and then, last week, I was glutened somehow and until I read your post this morning I could not, for the life of me, figure it out as I am very careful.

I ate ORGRAN animal crackers!!

I have wondered if anyone else had this burny throat symptom. Sorry you get it, because it is uncomfortable, but glad to know I am not alone and that someday, it will subside for good as I remain gluten-free.

Thanks a million for posting this! It was a mystery that had me sick for several days and completely discouraged and baffled.

And, the Orgran crackers are in the trash.... ;) they weren't that tasty anyway. :P

Yes, I get this too. I also get it with dairy items though. Have you considered a secondary intolerance or food allergy?

We're eating gluten free for our teen, and last night my husband ordered veal piccata. He hasn't eaten any wheat for two months and his throat became very sore and his nose completely congested. Anyway he won't be doing that again.

i never had the burning- but wheat & gluten & SUGAR always make me feel like im about to be getting a sore throat. wheat always gave me post nasal drip... (always congested me more than dairy)... and sugar always gave me that "im getting sick" feeling... many times i would be like: am i REALLY getting sick? or is it just too much sugar?

Yes i also get a dry feeling in my nose and throat,lower back pain and tirednesss.I myself am strict gluten free but venturing out trying other brands as long as it dosen't have any gluten ingridients its safe to eat.At first i was worried about eating this n that and if it didnt say gluten free right on the package i wouldnt eat it. But i now am just following the diet guidlines if gluten isnt in the ingriedients you can have it, i also follow sanitary guidlines to try to prevent cc.But i def dont worry about cc as much as i used to im trying to enjoy life as much as possible and almost all of my stomach troubles have went totally away which is a GREAT THING!

I know I'm sensitive to dairy - in that if I eat a lot I'm going to feel a bit ill :P But if I eat small amounts of no-name brand ice cream I feel fine. It might also be the combination of lots of sugar + dairy, the Gino Ginelli was *very* rich.

Yup, have had that feeling before :P

I'm glad I helped solve the mystery for you! :D The biscuits for me was definitely not pleasant. Times like these I wish I had gluten test strips, so I could check it, and send to them with a big angry letter of complaint. As it is, I'm just guessing, but my gut tells me I'm right ;)

And, the Orgran crackers are in the trash.... ;) they weren't that tasty anyway. :P

Hehe, they aren't that great and they cost a fortune! :P Strangely enough, the Orgran gluten-free flour (white flour) seems to be ok - I've made biscuits from them before and I was fine. What ingredients do those crackers have - does it include Sorghum or pea flour? I think their plain rice/corn/potato starch flour mix is OK, but the other flours might have small amounts of CC from when it's originally harvested/milled.

Both my dad and I suffer from post nasal drip. It's become a *lot* better gluten-free. I also used to get that "I'm getting sick" feeling from eating lots of chocolate, but it might have been gluten-containing chocolate, so maybe the dairy + gluten combination was killing me. I used to think the post nasal drip was worse after eating dairy, but now it seems to be fine after 6 months gluten-free :)

ohmygosh!

Nice!! I used to get frequent "throat infections", sinus infections, mild sore throats with no explanation. I also didn't realise they were gone until now when I noticed the sudden sore throat.

Thanks for all the responses! :)

Yes! I had the IgG food panel done last year. Showed SOY as "severe". That was the only food that registered as a problem. I do not eat any dairy either as my doctor suggested I remove it when I went gluten-free.

If something else is bothering me, I'll be darned if I can figure it out. Some have suggested I wait a while as I am only gluten-free 5 weeks and see what resolves in time. I don't know. I am tired of feeling sick and in a "histamine"- type response all the time. I had ELISA testing and environmental allergy testing...NEGATIVE for everything! so, I am very confused by this continued ill feeling.

Any thoughts appreciated! Thanks!

    • I know-pretty dumb. I'm usually very careful. I didn't check into it. Thanks for reply. DebLee
    • LexieA, This thread might help you. You say you never have "heartburn/GERD". You can have something called Silent Reflux. It  could also be NERD. some of these links are in this thread but I will post some releavent information in this reply as well. here is a good overview of the difference in this fox news article. http://www.foxnews.com/health/2012/11/13/gerd-or-nerd-new-type-acid-reflux-doesnt-respond-to-drugs.html but if your throwing up it is probably from Bile Relfux. . . . instead of acid reflux. I actually wrote a blog post on celiac.com about these conditions. the NYTimes article called Bile Reflux a "Shadowland" in Medicine and part of the reason for the title of the post. here is the NYtimes article about some of the issues you are describing. http://www.nytimes.com/2009/06/30/health/30brod.html throwing up is actually a protective reaction. and this normally protect us from poison's or food poisioning etc. but when our biofeedack loop is broken down like having bile in the stomach instead of the small intestine . . . it can be hard to break this cycle. The green portion is probably the bile portion. It is actually very caustic as Plumbago pointed out.  this would/coul scald our insides (lower GI/Small Intestines). Normally stomach acid is neutralized by bile after it leaves the stomach . .. not while in the stomach. I wouldn't never recommend anybody do this on purpose . .. but if you are already puking your food up then simply buy a pH test kit. testing your food/chyme/puke (food outside the body) you will quickly get an idea of how acidic/basic your food chyme (digested food) is. It will almost be a pH of 4.0 or more. the paleo nurse explains this well why strong stomach acid is important to your health. http://thepaleonurse.com/the-truth-about-stomach-acid-why-low-stomach-acid-is-jeopardizing-your-health/ quoting the paleonurse. "In the infinite wisdom of the human body, the stomach was designed to produce the acid that is necessary for proper digestion of food.  When functioning properly, the parietal cells of the stomach secrete hydrochloric acid that bring the stomach pH to a range of approximately 1.5 to 3.0" if it is a higher pH than this you can benefit from taking BetaineHCL to restore your stomach acid to more natural level. . . especially if you are not already taking PPI's since a proton pump inhibitor is lowering stomach acid. .. . by their very ability to cut off almost all stomach acid production. **** this is not medical advice I only know taking powdered stomach acid (BetaineHCL capsules)  helped me. I was not barfing my meals though. . . so your experience my be different. Maybe Ennis_tx will comment because he has some of the same symptom's/issues. But if I was puking I think I would be curios to know what my pH really is? And not Assume? anything at this point. If you test your stomach pH with easy to buy pH strips you will know whether it really is high pH (low stomach acid or a little stomach acid as your describe it) or low pH (really high stomach aid) that is causing the issue's. Once you know for sure you  will know who to go about correcting it. Supplementing with BetaineHCL is fairly harmless . . .unless you have an ulcer. And you will/would probably know it instantly if you take some BetaineHCL and it feels like someone is putting out a cigarette in the middle of your stomach.  It is acid burning your sore/ulcer. thankfully eating protein/food quickly neutralizes/raises stomach acid especially when taken with a glass of water. staying hydrated with a meal also helps improve digestion so be sure to take some water/drink like a tea or juice etc. for example if you want to the BetaineHCL to work properly. Milk has the opposite effect.  If you feel a burning milk can coat the lining of your stomach helping to erase/ease the effect of strong acid. And why people who eat hot **** five alarm peppers aka known as Hot heads keep milk close by if they need to dampen the fire in their stomachs from eating too many peppers. . . . and drinking water can aggravate this practice of eating the hottest peppers you can find. I hope this is helpful. I have rambled on long enough. be sure to read the sickboy user in the medhelp thread of how he helped his GERD/bile reflux. here is medhelp link for easy reference included in the "silent reflux" thread if you haven't read it yet. https://www.medhelp.org/posts/Gastroenterology/UNCONTROLLABLE-BILE-REFLUX-PLEASE-HELP/show/738242?page=1 he was suffering for 5 years and got better so don't lose hope. It can seem very daunting but people on this board do get better. we have used different methods but people do get better. again this is not medical advice just things that have helped me. good luck on your continued journey but it is not a long way back if you know the way. 2 Corinthians (KJV) 1:3,4 3) “Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; 4) who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them (sufferer still suffering)   which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.” posterboy by the grace of God,    
    • LOL sorry but really? You trust that, dominos, papa johns, and pizza hut ALL say they can not 100% guarantee their gluten-free pizza are celiac safe. THEY USE the same prep areas, same ingredient bins, same ovens and in many cases the same cutters and spoons used to spread the sauces and cut the pizza. I doubt the employees would even bother changing gloves between pizzas during rush.   Seriously if you want a gluten free pizza....gut a premade one in the freezer section from UDI, Dayia, RealGoodPizza or a crust from cappellos or califlower foods and make your own....Here please save yourself here is a list. BTW Pizza hut uses UDI crust and just tops them with their sauce etc....CCing in most cases and delivering them. Also the REAL good pizza will mail you cases of their pizzas fully made. Califlour foods and capello will mail you empty crust by the case. SO you can order them if  local stores do not carry them.

    • My MRI has been clear. They did a spinal tap back in May which was also good.  MS ruled out many times. All my symptoms match Gluten Ataxia, but I don't know for sure since I don't have a dx. However, I DO have Hashimotos so at least going Gluten Free is necessary for that. I go to my Rheumatologist on Jan. 30th, 2018. Can a Rheumatologist determine Gluten Ataxia? If so how long should I be back on Gluten for testing?  Thanks for the heads up on Free and Clear products. I will look into that.
