ugh! I have had several over the past month and I've been trying to figure out why all of a sudden I'm getting canker sores!

Not that it makes them any less annoying but I'm so glad to hear that it's common among celiacs. Now I can be more aware of what I've been eating when I get them and see if I've been glutened.

Thanks for the heads' up on this!

Celiacs are prone to canker sores!! Another thing to look forward too (lol). I use an antiseptic rinse when I get one (or more). They then tend to disappear within a day, thank God. I just had one actually, a huge one right under the very back of my tongue. I gargled a couple times that day, and it was gone.

Pye

My very first experience of these was with a horrible viral infection at the age of 27...I had them all the way down my throat so that I couldn't even swallow water...high fever, swollen glands...misery for weeks! As the dentist says, they are associated with immune function. Contrary to what he says, I do have them on my gums and the hard palate roof of my mouth as well as anywhere else inside the mouth they jolly well decide to camp!

I grew up having canker sores all the time too. I was recently glutened for the first time, and I did not get a canker from it.

I did get a canker recently and I associated it with too much acid, say from lemons or something. Maybe it was not enough nutrients in my diet (again?!) I've been led to believe that it has to do with lack of nutrients.

Here's an interesting link from a dentist in NB:

I have had these mouth ulcers for years as a marker of stressed immune response...I get them when I get "glutened" and also when any other stressors overtax my immune response. (I have a number of other autoimmune diseases in addition to CD) These little critters are my body's way of giving me notice that it is fed up(pun intended)with the demands I am making of it, and that if I don't pay attention, it is going to make me seriously sorry. I may or may not have other active gluten response symptoms at the time these pop up.

Thank you so much for the replies.

Martha, fortunately vomiting isn't one of my symptoms. So I'm sure the sores aren't from that. It would make sense though because of all the acid from the stomach.

Montana, I have noticed that I don't get them anywhere near as often as I use to. Maybe they are gluten related after all. Looking back I've gotten them all my life. I can remember as a kid my mouth would hurt so bad. I'm also allergic to corn, so that could be part of the problem, too.

Thanks again!

I get sores in my mouth if I accidently get some GF. I may not even have any other symptoms, but when they pop up, i know I've had something bad. I also try to throw up immediately if I get a dose of the "bad stuff". Before my diagnosis I would get up to 10 at a time and they were constant. I have a girlfriend who is lactose Intol. as well as Celiac. Her entire tounge swells up into one big blister if she eats gluten and isn't able to really eat anything for a day or two until the blister goes away. She's one that doesn't need to lose weight! :) She is now on track and a college Freshman at MSU-Bozeman. They have allowed her to live off campus instead of requireing her to live in campus houseing so that she can stick to her diet and not worry about dorm food. We've very excited about this! Good luck with those sores, I found that milk helped me either soy or real, it was soothing.

If I mistakenly eat gluten of some sort, I throw up a LOT and then I might get sores in my mouth and throat. So I have to remember to rinse my mouth thoroughly and drink water after such an experience. Could that be related to your problem?

Do you get sores in your mouth or tongue when you eat gluten? Do you have a geographic tongue?

I'm just trying to figure some things out. I was starting to feel better, but I think I got contaminated at my MIL's on mother's day. Now my mouth is full of sores along with my usual symptoms. I also have a geographic tongue and my tongue is a little tender.

Thanks for any input you may be able to offer!
