Anybody Else Have Heat Intolerance?(Can't Stand A Shower)
0

7 posts in this topic

Even with a very very mild shower, I get this uneasy feeling in my chest and I notice all of the blue veins in my hands and arms become more prominent. I have had a complete heart work up and everything is good there. I also have adrenal fatigue that I suspect that I got from gluten intolerance.

Anybody else have this?

I don't know if it has anything to do with food intolerances, but I can't stand too much heat. I THINK it all started with the hot flashes I used to get though. :lol:

I have kept my thermostat set at 60 for years now because any warmer than that made me sweat. But it's funny, now that I'm off gluten (and corn, etc.) I seem to get chilly at 60. I find myself nudging it up to 65 sometimes.

As far as the shower, I can't tell. Because of my psoriasis, I try to keep the water lukewarm because psoriasis hurts when it gets into hot water.

I had a hard time with heat (and I live in AZ) while still on gluten... but that is better now.

I did have a HORRIBLE time taking a shower after they gave me steroids... I couldn't handle the feeling of the water on my skin and the sound of the water at the same time. My adrenals were over stimulated. I was so whigged out by that I didn't notice if heat bothered me.... Also walked around feeling drunk and couldn't do two things at once - loud noises and a conversation made me nuts. Anything and a loud noise made me nuts...

Yes! I have heat intolerance too, I have a hard time taking a shower too. I have adrenal issues (low cortisol) and this is a symptom from that I am pretty sure...which is hopefully all coming from gluten. I am new to this whole gluten intolerance thing, still trying to figure things out. I have blood sugar issues and I know when I am getting hot (too much clothing, hot shower, etc) the low blood sugar shaky feelings and anxiety get worse, I also see stars sometimes from heat. I'm thinking (hoping!) this all gets better off gluten. I have only been gluten-free for 3 weeks.

The vein thing, I get that as well. Kinda freaks me out. Funny thing is, my new doctor suggested I may have Raynaud's Disease/Phenomenon, which, as far as I can tell, is an intolerance to cold. I did try cold showers, but they just cause me to shiver incessantly, basically rendering me unable to move. So, I'm doing lukewarm showers these days. Like you, the issue still occurs even in a mild shower, but not as badly as it did when I was still taking hot showers. Any shower-related unease has been minimized since eliminating hot showers. There were times when I would get nauseous to the point of nearly passing out, but I was probably taking showers that were way too hot. Just couldn't help myself.

I had just the opposite (low core body temperature) for years. I froze all the time. Eventually a naturopath gave me a complete panel of thyroid hormone tests and found I had Hashimoto's hypothyrodism. Hashimoto's is highlly correlated with gluten intolerance (I've been diagnosed with celiac disease). Hyperthyroidism can cause the opposite symptoms (feeling overheated all the time). So I wonder whether your doc has given you a complete thyroid panel of tests (TSH, free t3, free t4, TPOab (thyroid antibodies))?

i second Burdee above... have u had a complete thyroid checkup???

and actually- u can also have heat intolerance with Hashimoto's hypothyroid alone. not everyone gets cold... or feels cold. maybe that's because hypothyroid can exhaust the adrenals... or maybe its because some of us with hashimotos dont sweat like normal people so then we just feel hot and suffocated...

make sure you get all those tests above- and cross all your ts- get checked for both Hashi and graves, as you can have both (which i do). im very intolerant to heat...

**i DO also have to add- that when i went gluten free (even before my thyroid dx & meds)- i became less hot, and didnt have to put my ac down so much... gluten DEFINITELY can make u feel more intolerant to heat...

but i never felt intolerant in the shower... i like really hot showers and baths, but then get real lightheaded... it's the hot humid air that i cannot take at all.... and even tho i like hot water- when im just out and about during the day- i do NOTTTTTTTT like to wash my hands in hot water EVER!!!!! everytime i go to wash my hands and the previous customer used hot water- it sends a jolt of adrenaline thru me, i hate it... ALWAYS like to wash my hands with cold water.

    • I do think sunscreen could be an issue for people. I realize that it is only an issue if ingested. I have very pale children. We use thick zinc oxide and waterproof sunscreen. I apply it every hour or we will burn. I have it coating my hands at the end of every pool trip. We swim daily in the summer in a Texas. There is nothing else to do when it's this hot!  It takes me multiple hand washings to get it off my hands. Often times, while at the pool or beach, we eat - chips, watermelon, nuts etc. I assume it touches the food i ingest. Ours is gluten-free. 
    • I'm sorry I don't  In fact I just looked and only found this on the uk datasheet; So maybe I was wrong!
    • I am Catholic and I totally understand. At my home parish, there is a layman who has celiac.  He has arranged to have these hosts ordered from the Benedictine sisters of Perpetual adoration. http://www.benedictinesisters.org/ At the beginning  mass, anyone who needs a gluten-free hose can take it from the main receptacle and place it in a special pix.  The priest has them and they are consecrated and with the priest.    He is handling the gluten and the gluten-free host back and forth.  But, I talked to this fellow and he said that he has not had any symptoms of cross-contamination and he is fairly sensitive.   I am celiac but really don't get any obvious symptoms so I can't tell you if cross-contamination is an issue or not   I also partake in the wine,  but I try to sit in the first or second row( to be the first to drink the wine)  to limit cross-contamination.  I make sure to be aware if the priest Saying mass puts a small piece of bread in each chalice (then I do not partake.) psawyer is right though.  Consuming either form of  eucharist is adequate and acceptable.   Often times I just take the wine.   I have considered becoming a Eucharistic minister.  This would completely eliminate the possibility of cross-contamination. If you were the first person to drink from the chalice, there would be no chance of cross-contamination at all.  Traveling is tough.   I often times abstain when I am traveling  but many parishes now offer gluten-free hosts  so I'm sure you could research it  and contact the parish ahead of time. One of my best friends has Ncgs  and he can take the gluten-free host with no trouble.   I know a priest whose nephew is celiac in central Texas. . I haven't talk to him personally about the situation (just his SIL) but I'm sure  he would be happy to talk about it if needed.  I don't know what part of Texas you're in  but let me know.
    • Do you know the specific name of the wheat protein in Nizoral? Thank you!
    • Welcome to the community here. I am not Catholic, but have been a member here for many years, and a moderator for ten. This topic comes up from time to time. I am Episcopalian, similar in most beliefs. Talk to your priest. In my church, receiving one form of communion is sufficient to meet the obligation, so I usually just take the cup. I arrange with the priest to be first in line, lest the cup be contaminated from another communicant. For the wafer to qualify in the Roman Catholic Church, it must be made from wheat. There are some sources of low-gluten wafers, but I have no personal experience with the. The Episcopalian (Anglican) church allows a wafer that does not contain wheat.
