Something is very wrong..i keep waking up ...heart rate up...feeling warm...and feeling sick...like really...for the past 3 or 4 nights. I have no idea if this is a gluten issue....that i'm getting cross contaminated somehow...or if something else is wrong. Took pulse last night...about 75 but usually just before and after sleep i'm around 60.=\ I know that's not high but....considering i haven't been feeling well either and heart attacks tend to happen around 4 am....yeah...freaking out..Anyone else have issues with falling asleep and waking up in the middle of the night nauseated?

I used to wake up sweaty every night. Went to bed ok but would get hot and start sweating during sleep. Doesn't happen anymore unless I am reacting to something in my diet.

There are some threads on night sweats. And also low grade fever.

I use to wake up a couple years ago and feel sweat on my chest but i'm not getting that. So I dunno if I would consider it night sweats. I'm very edgy because it ALWAYS happens primarily at night. I dunno why it would always happen then. The primary symptom is nausea. And discomfort but i have NO idea what could be causing this...i have nothing but gluten free foods...pretty sure i used nothing that had gluten in it...

Not sure...last time i had it checked was november and i was pretty normal. Could I be having gluten withdrawl? it's been less than a month that i've been completely free of it...and i accidentally used some facial moisturizer earlier the week that is apparently not gluten free so...who knows i guess?

Do you have any gastric distress or bloating when you awake like that?

Hypoglycemia wouldn't show on pretty much any test a doctor ran unless you were hypo at the time it was taken. The best way to tell would be to get a monitor, you can get one at Walmart for about $9 and check your sugar when you wake up feeling like that.

Achey and makes me feel nauseated. Bloating not so much...no farts or anything...but...I tend to go to the bathroom to see if that's what's causing the problem..usually very little of anything comes out.

If it was very low, something like orange juice will bring it up quickly and then you need something that will make it stay level (protein, fat and carbs). If that is the cause having a snack before bedtime like peanut butter on a rice cake will help keep your sugar level through the night.

Interesting thought....I want to try a snack before bed but...heh....terrified of having anything in my tummy before bed cause of the nausea. Oh gosh i hate this!

100% understand that, it's the same reason I just deal with the low sugar (somewhere between 40s-50s) in the mornings because I don't want that feeling in my belly at night.

Well I had dark chocolate last night about 2 hours before bed...and a small bit of rice noodles with celtic sea salt on them. Not specifically for the purpose of trying out the low blood sugar theory. I didn't wake up in the middle of the night. However one of my theories was also I was getting too warm.....yesterday my husband put the air conditioner in the window for the summer...so it could be i was a comfortable temp. I thought maybe the heat was making me wake up sick and because i'm scared of throwing up it became a cycle? I also didn't have anything overtly milk related or nightshade related. not sure if i should try adding something back today and see how i do tonight or wait another day just to be sure this wasn't a fluke. I did have pirate's booty though which has milk in it for the white cheddar flavor i believe and i did have rudi's bread which has potato starch...that safe to say it's not a nightshade or milk problem ? I just avoided milk and having potato yesterday but i still had some of their products. I'm leaning more toward either low blood sugar or the temperature changed a lot. Or maybe i had a virus and i'm just getting over it lol I dunno!

    • I am so sorry that you are sick.  I think you have to decide if you want to get back on a gluten free diet and get tested or remain gluten free and seriously eat as if you had celiac disease or NCGI.  That means following celiac cross contamination protocol.  Like not sharing toasters (unless you use toaster bags), condiments  (unless squeeze bottles), etc.  NO dining out until you are seeing significant improvement.   Each time you dine out it is like playing Russian Roulette.  Go when you have mastered the diet and can afford to take a hit.   Here is the deal.  Celiacs all react differently.  If they get "glutened" it can generate symptoms swiftly or it can take a while for those antibodies to ramp up and you will not feel the effects for a day or so.  It can take weeks, months or years for antibodies to stop attacking your body.  A few gluten exposures, antibodies ramp up, you feel awful, start to recover and then you take another hit from gluten.  It can be a vicious cycle.  Many celiacs take a long time to recover, but the learning curve to the diet is steep.  I think you realize that now.  I won't get into developing other concurrent AI issues after repeated glutenings.   Your doctor does not sound celiac-savvy.  Not that all GIs need to be experts, but they should keep up on research and follow protocol as recommended by the GI Association.  Consider a new GI. Can you do this diet without a diagnosis?  Yes.  While I was formally diagnosed four years ago, my hubby went gluten free 16 years ago per the poor advice of two medical doctors.  He refuses to do a challenge now because we know that gluten makes him sick.  So, he is just as careful as I am.   Consider getting another family member tested who may have celiac symptoms.  This is a genetic related disease.   The pill camera can catch celiac disease, but not always because villi are microscopic.  I imagine it mostly catches severe damage that affects the actual structure of the small intestine.   At least you might have ruled out Crohn's.  The GI might have missed areas if damaged.  The small intestine is a very long tube and if stretched out larger than a tennis court!  Get all copies of your test results from your doctor.  You need to keep advocating and having those records in your possession is priceless.  Take care.  
    • I suffered with rashes on my elbows knees and has of spine for years. The itching was intense and made me totally miserable. Rash started as large blisters which eventually popped and scabbed over.. Doctor prescribed every cream known to man and none worked. In the end I saw a new doctor who knew immediately what it was. One visit to the hospital and biopsies on the rash area revealed DH. I am registered Coeliac and now never eat  gluten and I never have problems.   
    • No, my kitchen is NOT Celiac safe/friendly. Although I do maintain a gluten free diet and use only gluten free products in my cooking/backing, there is high risk for cross contamination with toaster use, other appliances, butters, sauces, etc. Same goes for the rarer occasion that I'll dine out - I eat gluten free & only from a gluten free menu, but I don't only eat at places with Celiac friendly kitchens/prep space.   From what I can remember, I'd like to say I have been woken up with issues just a few times though, and not anything significant. I won't dispute the probability I have IBS, however, I think there is more going on, too.     Thank you for your kind words & well wishes.
    • I run into many parents who are in quite a quandary about instituting a gluten-free diet for their child. A typical scenario is that one of the parents is gluten intolerant and is highly suspicious that their child is as well. Due to the child being 'relatively healthy' the non-gluten intolerant spouse suggests that the child be able to 'live a little' and enjoy the cake and pizza that is so prevalent during children's parties and sporting events.

    • I am so sorry you have been suffering so much for so long. Yes you do need to eating gluten for celiac related testing. There is a lot we have to do to be safe. While gluten free have you been using things like a seperate toaster, dedicated condiments, butters,jams etc? have you been baking with wheat flour for others? What is your diet typically like? I ask because your doctor is woefully ignorant of the diagnosis process for celiac so he may also not have told you what you need to do to be safe.  The Newbie 101 thread at the top of the Coping section has a lot of info. I hope you get some answers soon. One more thing. Are you being woken up at night with D? That is a good sign that you don't have IBS. IBS D hits when folks are awake.
