Off Gluten For 6 Days And Now Back On Incase Of Retest For Dh...going Insane!
0

5 posts in this topic

Is it really possible that even after being off gluten for 6 days that I am reacting through my skin even worse than I was before I went off? I have been on Dapsone for 9 days. After 3, I went off of gluten because I was getting frustrated with the rash and the stomach symptoms I get when I eat gluten.(BTW I was to the point where I was still itchy periodically but I wasnt scratching my legs to bleeding point anymore) I finally have all of my test results back and go to the dr next week to find out what they are so I figured I had better go back on gluten incase of needing to do a retest for DH (she most certainly did the DH swab wrong). 

Yesterday was my first indulgance in bread and within an hour my skin was crawling and my stomach was bloated and upset all night. Tonight, we had perogies and I feel so bloated, I could hardly drink water without feeling sick, my skin was crawling and burning again (and still is), and after about an hour, I suddenly felt so irritable and grouchy that i felt sorry for my kids. 

 

I just really hope I have some answers next week...

My philosophy has always been that if they are not going to diagnose I am just not going to eat it anymore because I know it makes me quite sick.  

Been off of it (gluten)  for 10 years, (not officially diagnosed)  and last December ate thru a few bags of corn chips and a box of new pecans.... and blew up in a nasty rash.  Holy Moley, what the &^%$#@* !!! :angry:    Was almost tempted to go to a dermatologist until I remembered Takala's Rule: "If they can Screw It Up, They Will.   I came to my senses and reluctantly gave the rest of the corn chips to the spouse, and stopped eating the pecans, and self treated the rash, it cleared up.  I'm still not sure which it was, but those were the 2 newer food items I'd been eating.  The medical profession would want several thousand dollars to get to the point where MAYBE they could tell me to stop eating gluten, and why waste the money at this point.

Are you allergic to corn?  I love corn chips and ? why they wouldn't be gluten-free.  Maybe processed by CC from the factory?  I have seen corn chips that listed wheat but also found them w/o wheat.  Is there something I should be looking for on ingredients label?

 

I haven't had a blood test one that showed Celiac nor have my biopsies come back with DH.  My PCP told me today (ck up) that it is DH due to being gluten-free and Dapsone with excellent results.  My GI, Dermatologist and she agree it's DH.  She said why have the EGD for a biopsy as they already have dx and not to waste my money on co-pays.

I have an appointment to go over my results on Tuesday but becuase of what I learned AFTER she did the swab wrong, I am assuming that it will come back negative. I wanted her to be able to retest right then and there if it was negative and so I went back on gluten but boy am I paying for it. 

How much gluten do I have to be ingesting to be considered enough? 

 

ALso, the benifits of the Canadian medical system is that I am not paying for each and every visit :)

Instead of starting a new thread, I will add to this one...Today (and yesterday for that matter), I feel like I am in a state of permanant fog. I have zero energy and just want to sleep. Unfortunately I have 4 kids and a husband who works away and is currently gone. I have been on dapsone for 10 days now and I don't think I noticed any side effects. I felt good in many ways after going off of gluten for 6 days and since yesterday I really just feel horrible. I am now wondering if it could be a side effect of dapsone??? I am only taking 50 mg and was considering getting it increased when I went back to doc on Tuesday. THis weird feeling is new even though I have to say I felt a bit like this on day 3 of going off of gluten as well. 

 

ANyone have the absentminded feeling or foggy feeling due to dapsone?

    • I've been diagnosed with celiac a few months ago I thought that I had it for a while now it runs in the family.  I found out I had it a few months back when I ate chick fi a sandwich and had to go to the ER because I couldn't stop throwing up. They didn't know what it was and it took a few more months for anyone to take me seriously and find out what's wrong   Anyways I've gone gluten free now and I still have pains whenever I eat ANYTHING. It's cramping and burning and feels like my stomach is on fire.  I also have pains...below which I'm not sure what it is.  I ate a salad today, and now i'm in pain the salad had cheese, onion on it no dressing or any breading... Maybe I should stay away from cheese, I think it may be lactose and can't eat soy.   I ate some gluten free chex the other day with rice milk and ended up in pain.. I don't know maybe it's more than just celiac. I don't know if this is normal for people just going gluten free...maybe there was some hidden gluten in those foods. I don't know.   All i know is that this pain is hurting me and I'm tired. Thanks for reading...this is my first post.
    • I found my gas issues were caused by carbs, and sugars, something about how the bacteria in my gut changed and started making me gassy and extremely bloated when they got a hold of any thing more then a tbsp of grains, beans, fruit, or starch carbs. And no amount of medicine helped. Changed to 1/4 servings of those and mostly protein, fat diet. As for vitamin supplements I found I have to take B vitamin supplements 3 times a day to not go zombie mode. I personally found Liquid Vitamins Energy & Stress and the Nero-logic from them helps along with the occasional 1/2 bottle of 5 hour. As to carbonated water I avoided it when bloated cause it made me feel worse.
    • Butterbean, do go have a read of the dermatitis herpetiformis section.  See if anyone's story sound familiar to what you're experiencing.
    • Hi all. Well, it's been around twenty days since I've been taking Gas-X like meds (with simethicone), but no relief. Maybe I should drink bigger dose... Currently, I'm taking 80 mg four times per day.
      I'm so exhausted, both mentally and physically... Anyway, I have two questions:
      First, is it good or bad to drink mineral/carbonated water if you have severe trapped gas like me?
      Second: Is it possible to regain some physical strength/relieve fatigue with vitamin supplements? Thanks in advance.
    • I have had so many issues with my teeth--I keep getting decay and I have had filling after filling.  This past week, my dentist told me I may need a crown, which is pricey. I also have two missing teeth, which was a genetic thing that runs in my family. I am sick of hygienists telling me I am not doing enough brushing, flossing rinsing.  I do all three religiously (can't even imagine how bad my mouth would be if I didn't...)  Thankfully, last time I had my teeth cleaned, the hygienist said that my mouth was the cleanest one she had seen in years. And, she said, "something happened to your teeth developmentally." I explained how I had undiagnosed celiac disease many years. I am only 31... It is really disheartening.   What do you guys do to afford all this dental care?  My insurance doesn't cover a whole lot.  Thankfully, my dentist has felt bad and gives me discounts here and there.
