Mouth Ulcers and additional symptoms...

10 messages in this subject.

After I took antibiotics for a tooth extraction I suffered from really bad stomach issues which I didnít address properly and quick enough. I also had a change in my lifestyle after moving in with my husband such as the bad foods I started to eat and I had no exercise so I gained 30 pounds. I then started to have this weird reaction to almost everything I ate. I would instantly get this feeling as if there was something stuck in my through and wasnít letting me breath and at the same time I had so much air trying to escape from my stomach. I really couldnít understand what happened it seemed as if I developed acid reflux or GERD overnight. After a little while I noticed it happened mainly when I ate tomatoes and then sooner after that I started doing research and realized I was having a sudden reaction to nightshades which I ate all my life. Itís almost a year later and I took an allergy test which showed I was allergic to milk and wheat and fir some reason they didnít test me for nightshades like I asked. But I did eliminate all the dairy, wheat and nightshade products and my stomach issues are clearing and I am able to lose weight and my extended stomach is now gone. Tonight I ate some soup with potatoes thinking maybe it would be ok because the reaction was never as bad as it was with peppers , tomatoes and eggplants but I was wrong. I now have puffy cheeks and large red sores in my mouths which will probably go away in a couple of days. I really do think that the antibiotics along with everything else ruined my gut bacteria and I wish someone had given me some more guidance. I am not sure if the allergies are permanent but what I can say is that my skin has slowly clearing up, Iím loosing weight, I am less irritable, my mind is more clear and I finally wake up in the morning feeling refreshed and ready to start the day. Any one else have anything similar?

Hi, yes. I've had mouth ulcers for most of my life too! I have a couple autoimmune diseases and leaky gut-- probably caused by a childhood stress and multiple food allergies that were ignored until I became an adult: gluten, casein (dairy), olives & olive oil, bivalve crustaceans, egg whites, and bell peppers. I am also intolerant of all nightshades as well as soy, grains including rice, and caffeine. For years I used to eat pizza nearly everyday: onion, olives, and extra peppers. And coffee ice cream was my favorites dessert! Now, thankfully, I only get them when I eat one of the things I am allergic to or can't tolerate. :-)

Thanks again all for your advise. I think I may have stumbled across something that you might want to consider. I was told some time ago that I could have an intolerance to Bell Peppers (a member of the nightshade family), I have since then totally cut them out of my diet, and the frequency of bouts have calmed down. I (unknowingly) ate food about 3 weeks ago containing green peppers, a week later I had one of the worst bouts of ulceration, as I mentioned - a rash like problem on my skin. I have been surfing the web, looking for articles on the nightshade family, and it seems they are accountable for a range of health issues. Funnilly, I picked up on a site for feeding your pet - and it says nightshade vegetables (potatoes, tomatoes, PEPPERS, egg plant) can cause skin conditions and sore patches in and out of the mouth. I am now going to cut tomatoes and potatoes out of my diet and see what happens....anything, as you know is worth a try....I thought it might help some of you.....
Take care

Hi I also have real trouble with mouth ulcers I have ever since I was little and didnít know what caused them and had numerous trips to the doctors, Im now 25 and was recently diagnosed with chrones disease. I asked the doctor could this have somthing to do with the mouth ulcers and the doctor and consultant both said yes I was put on a anti inflamitary drug called ASACOL. I was told this helps with all types of ulcers, I havnít been on it for long but seems to help.

i just tend to take soluable multi vitimans ,berocca or such like and use a medicated mouth wash such as oraldene , im not sure what triggers it i tend to get it once every six months or there abouts the itchy sores are not always prevalent it depends on the severity of the attack , i think myself its herpes related but cant be sure ive never even visited the doctor on it , i tend to stay away from docs i dont like bad news LOL

i think its linked to stress and being run down /over indulgence i have worked over seas for many years and during times of not eating well and drinking too much etc always seemed to trigger attacks.

good luck F

like a cold sore in the nose that stays for the duration of the attack and have had it in conjuntion with really itchy sores on the skin like You describe ,, oddly i used to suffer from cold sores relatively frequently , but for the last two years i have had coldsores on my lips and for me that is most unusual , but i do tend to have outbreaks of mouth ulcers around twice a year

Iím no physician, but maybe you can look at a description of Ēdermatitis herpetiformisĒ like the one at http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/ency/article/001480.htm
and see if it looks familiar.

Hi, Iím at my wits end, I have read your stories, and I can relate to each and everyone of you. I have been suffering with chronic bouts of mouth ulcers since my early teens - Iím now 28, I have been through the mill with doctors who donít understand, countless blood tests, tropical disease clinics, homeopathic dentists, chinese herbalist, every off-the-shelf/behind-the-counter remedy and online products, with no joy. (Reading the BECLOMETHASONE article has excited me - my asthmatic friend is on the case). I am writing though to ask if any of you have had additional symptoms - if I get an extraordinarilly aggressive bout (in excess of 15 ulcers on my tongue, roof of mouth, and inner and outter lip area, I canít talk or eat and feel utterly miserable) I get very sore raised patches on my hands and feet - they look a little like a target - round, pearly outter with a red inner spot, they feel like pins sticking in the skin. Aside to that I have found some sore patches in my nostrels, which turn into small scabs - a lot like the sore patches you can get when you have a severe cold. It seems whatever it is, it is attacking the mucos membranes, but I cannot explain the hands and feet. Can ANYONE relate?????? Wish you all luck in finding your cures. Thank you for your time, Stac.
