Help! Not Sure What This Is, But Trying To Figure It Out...

Ok, the really crappy part here is that it seems to happen only after eating at Five Guys. It's not a glutening, so I'm not sure what is going on.

If I eat at Five Guys (and I've been known to be a real ass there. The Five Guys in my neighborhood seems to be the worst of them. They have to be CONSTANTLY reminded about CC, to the point that I had them remake a burger and change their gloves. I know I'm not getting glutened for that reason, and this is just different symptoms than my glutening symptoms.

About 5 hours after I eat the burger, I get jittery. My joint begin to ache (when I'm glutened it's my entire body that aches) I'll get a bit of a headache, some heart palpitations and the most noticable of all, SWEATING. Last night for example. I had Five Guys for lunch, dealt with joint aches from about 7pm on, then I went to sleep. I was jolted awake for no reason around 2am, and the sheets had several sweat spots in them, where they were just soaked, but my body was dry. My heart wasn't racing, but it was pounding.

My first thought with all of this is MSG, but I'm not sure. I kept the burger pretty plain (ketchup, onions, green peppers and mayo, didn't have any fries). Anyone have any ideas?

Are you ok with peanuts/legumes? I know the ones I've been to fry the potatoes in peanut oil.

I am fine with peanuts/legumes, and it wouldn't matter anyways, I didn't have any fries.

Whoops, my mistake. Can't think of anything else, I'm sure you are normally ok with the things you had on the burger or you wouldn't have ordered it that way. Sometimes I get reactions that I just can't pin to any one thing. It's frustrating, I know. Hopefully someone else will chime in with other ideas. :)

I'm still thinking it's MSG. I've heard they lace the burgers with it too, but I've never been able to find a way to substantiate that claim.

Just a thought but, if everytime you eat there, you feel bad.....don't eat there? :)

I may just do that. I can't seem to narrow down the culprit. It's not every time I eat there though, that's the kicker. I guess it's going to have to be a once in a while thing.

My first thought was a possibility of MSG as well. I wonder if you could get them to put no seasoning on it if it would help? Or even call the corporate office and ask if they use MSG? Or like someone else said, don't eat there LOL. B)

I HATE the possibility of not eating there; there's not many places near me that are safe to go out and eat, so it's yet another limitation. But waking up in a sweat kinda sucks too...

Understandable. So maybe see if they put seasoning on it while it's cooking and ask them not too and see what happens? Hopefully that will solve it. B)

    • https://www.twinings.co.uk/hot-chocolate-coffee-other-drinks/hot-chocolate-and-malt-drinks/twinings-swiss-chocolate-drink Have discovered this drink - it's great, labelled gluten free and is also fortified.   I can't drink too much milk as I get bloated, but find it tastes really nice even made mostly with hot water and just a small amount of milk.  Thank you Twinings.
    • Ennis_TX, thank you for your response! I will take heed of all your nutritional pieces of advice, one by one. And yes, I am aware that a gluten marathon is on the horizon soon.   Before doing the test, however, I shall try to fortify my diet with the nutrients you mentioned, and report back in a week or two.   I think adding some iron supplement is wise too.    
    • Yeah I thought that rant might make me look like a queer after reading it a bit later.....I am straight btw I just have very long and fine hair...that yeah it blows everywhere and gets in my mouth sometimes, and always pushing it with my hands or having to tie it up.  I blew up because it sometimes feels like I am talking to a bunch jocks with buzz cuts when it comes to hair....like people that do not understand no matter what you do....it is going to end up in your mouth and you have to keep messing it and working with it when the stuff runs like 4-6" past your shoulders.
      >.< thing is some times with the way your hair is.....you do not rinse it all out...some conditioners I have used in the past used to b ones you would not rinse all the way out....it sort of does become a issue that is very easily avoided. There are many more options for gluten free shampoos now days and many companies have taken the allergy/gluten concern to heart and removed them/used alternatives to boost sales to a larger demographic. Point is while yes I did blow up about it...and honestly in many cases the "hydrolyzed wheat protein" thing is a hit and miss on if it really contained gluten, but better safe then sorry is my bet and with tons of options....why chance it?


       
    • B-vitamins...most gluten and processed foods are enriched...your basically eating a multivitamin every time you have a slice of bread etc. Look for a full spectrum B-vitamin supplement, others can be magnesium, iron, vitamin d, folate, etc. You mention plenty of greens and fruit so ruling out vitamin A,C,K, and a few others. Hmm did you drop off your carbs too much? If your carb dependent you need more complex carbs from like sweet potatoes, rice etc. And what about fat and protein? I am a keto dieter, my body burns fat instead of carbs for energy so I can say it is quite important to have plenty of fats and protein in your diet. Try snacking on nuts/seeds between meals or making up a protein shake with almond butter in it between meals (again going but what you said you eat vs what you might be missing)

      I use Liquid Health for my spectrum B vitamins and vitamin D. Might look into them, being in liquid form you can just add it to a beverage. Might see about magnesium also, huge issue with many with this disease.

      On other after thought, your probably already very aware of...but you mention your not "diagnosed yet" you will have to do a gluten challenge of eating gluten for a extended amount of time daily prior to getting tested. http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/
    • Thanks guys! I have an endoscopy/colonoscopy  feb 5th, so we will see. I have had digestive issues for the past like 10 years. GERD, migraines, lactose intolerant, dizziness on and off starting last year. My test just always show chronic inflammation, I thought they tested for celiac last time but it was only H. pylori samples. As much as I don’t want to have celiac I’m hoping this could be the root of my problem! My doctor said I should probably go gluten free after the test regardless of the results. You guys have been so helpful!!
