wikipedia added a topic in Celiac Disease - Coping WithGoing Without Eating Gluten And Then Eating It Again?Ok so I just went 2 days without eating gluten (I know it's not a lot) but then I was forced to eat a hamburger. Afterward (not right away though) my hands and feet felt kind of asleep or they were really tingly at least. Then the sides of my mouth and my lower lip began feeling almost numb and they still do.
Then later, I was laying down and began to cry and almost right away I started getting this extremely stingy pain in the back of my head, my eyes and nose. My mouth tasted like something really spicy. The pain was awful, I've never felt that kind before, it was like someone was rubbing red onions all over my eyes and everywhere, and I'm allergic to them. I sat up and it got less extreme but was still there. Just like blinking my eyes after tears came was painful. I thought I was bleeding or something....
I felt a bit nauseous but I didn't often feel like this after eating wheat before :ph34r: ..is this normal? Or related to something else?

wikipedia added a topic in Celiac Disease - Pre-Diagnosis, Testing & SymptomsDo You Think That It Sounds As If I Might Have Celiac DiseaseI'm not quite sure what to write here and I don't know a lot about Celiac Disease but someone suggested to me that I could have it. I'm a 16-year-old girl and I'm not sure if they all or even any of them are related to Celiac Disease but I'll just try to make it quick..
1. I have extremely irregular bowel movements, always have. It was a surprise to me that you're supposed to go once a day or every other day, ever since I can remember it's around once a week. It's not difficult to go though, just don't have to often.
2. Vomiting too often as a child. It was an exception if I didn't vomit for a month and I'm serious that at least a year passed when I didn't go for 30 days without vomiting at a time.
3. I feel sick after eating certain foods. I don't think I'm too bothered by homemade spaghetti and pasta but whenever I buy a sandwich or a box with pasta in it at the grocery store I feel nauseous. It's just this overall uncomfortable feeling of feeling like I'm about to vomit but not having to if that makes sense. My throat and everything downwards feels a bit sick after eating them. There's also this pizza we make at home that makes my stomach feel like this, most homemade pizzas do. Cheerios does as well. Crackers with certain cheeses made my stomach feel weird. I don't know, I don't really feel all that awful it's just this weird uncomfortable annoying feeling.
4. Weak immune system. At the same time every year I get awfully sick to the point where I can't do anything. I'm prone to infections, coughs and getting very sick.
5. Inability to gain weight, no matter how much I eat. I have a BMI of 18-19 at any given time.
6. Up until very recently, my skin and lips have always been very dry and cracked.
7. Bad breath, no matter how long I brush my tongue. I have to be chewing gum constantly.
8. I have hair pretty much everywhere. It looks like peach fuzz and some people have told me that since I don't eat very healthy foods and don't get enough nutrients that it might be lanugo and that it might disappear as I eat more.
9. Depression to the point of considering suicide.
10. Hair loss, perhaps related to the diet.
11. No concentration. Forget things as they are said to me.
12. No energy.
14. Get extremely exhausted right away when exercising.
15. Irregular menstruation. I got it at 13 which my mother said was odd and extremely late (I don't think it is) but the first time it lasted over thirty days. Then I didn't get it for over six months. They're not that irregular anymore but still not regular. I haven't told anyone this.
16. I had REALLY bad eczema as a child and still get rashes occasionally.
17. Always hungry, almost never full.
Thank you, if someone reads this and replies. I don't really know anything about Celiac Disease or if this is misplaced but if you have ideas at what else this could be, please tell me.
