Hello. I know this discussion is over 3 years old, but I JUST found it and really need some help. I am a VERY active 30 year old. About 5 years ago I've started having these "episodes" of ridiculous fatigue, puffy face (under eyes), muscle cramps, distended stomach, gas and constipation. This coincided with me finding out I had HSV2 and I was blaming everything on that virus. I've now been on medication since forever and these fatigue episodes have continued. they come and go as they please, sometimes days, sometimes weeks and a few times as long as a month. If I try to push myself and workout while being derailed, I get acid reflex. I've been told it's depression, it's all in my head, i am overworked, over workedout.... but i know it to not be true. because after being ill for a week, i'll wake up one day and all will be normal and i'll be able to play soccer for 2 hours again - no problem. 

 

i've noticed that i get this when i stress or when i drink beer (even just A beer, i almost never drink) or eat some carbs or some sweet stuff. I've looked into cadida and been taking good probiotics to no avail.

 

I eat really healthy, no fast food, no carbs. but if i do eat something "off" or drink a beer.... ohhh here it comes, it's like i get hit by a truck and off i go, my brains fogs up and i lose any motivation for anything.

 

it appears that the posters here have similar problems, yet going gluten free hasn't really helped them. so what is the solution then ? it's been 7 years....

Go and get bloods done, and go from there. While it might not help everyone, it might just help you :) Worth a shot to stop feeling this way, yeah? I know for me it is, just waiting on an endoscopy to officially diagnose/confirm, CAN NOT WAIT to start gluten-free!

Have you ever been truly gluten free in 7 years?  It doesn't take much to keep the autoantibody factory in production, and one lapse (like a regular -- non gluten-free - beer) can start up a new, more active production line.  So before you say it is not gluten, you must be truly gluten free, OCD almost in being gluten free and avoiding cross-contamination (which comes from something as simple as taking croutons off the salad and then eating the salad!).  Give it a good strict trial, drink Redbridge or Bard's Ale or similar gluten free beer, and see how you feel when you are truly gluten free.

Hello. I know this discussion is over 3 years old, but I JUST found it and really need some help. ....

I split this into its own topic as I felt that would be more helpful.

One other "distinguishing" symptom is i get these tiny tiny bumps (sores ?!) on the inside of my bottom part of mouth not on lip, but from lip down. they come and go at times and only stay for a few hours, but i can't even see them in mirror they are so small, yet i feel them very much with my tongue. they are not 100% present for the time all the fatigue lasts, but they ONLY show up when i have this.

 

i'll do the gluten free, no doubt. However, what i was saying is that the member that had 100% of my symptoms also went gluten free and yet says his/her symptoms come out from time to time

You mention posters having similar problems and gluten free not helping, but I can't find which posters you are referring to.  This must have come from the splitting of the topic, I guess.  So perhaps you can remind us.  Most people notice some difference when eating gluten free; very few have no changes unless they do not wait long enough for changes to occur.

Hey Mushroom, yeah the topic was indeed split, sicne the original post was last update 3 years ago. but people there seem to share 100% of my symptoms. the damn CRAVING is my biggest downfall. I am not hungry and yet all i want is sugar and carbs. it's crazy. i fight and fight with myself and lose everytime to sweets. I'll go take out money from ATM just to go to vending machine and buy a King Size Snickers and this is coming from a guy that eats home made soup and buckwheat as 80% of the diet on normal days.

 

I doubt this gluten reaction because if something is BAD for you, why would the body keep craving it.

 

original post this way: yumummymy is the poster

You think heroin is good for heroin addicts or alcohol is good for alcoholics? :ph34r:   Stuff becomes bad for you because you crave it and consume too darned much of it.  Sure sign of addiction.  We always become addicted to the stuff that's bad for us.  Lay off it :ph34r:   Go back to buckwheat and soup and feel better :)

      "I got this vaccination in 2009 when I was 20 and it completely altered my life. Made my celiac disease so much worse, sleep 15-18 hours a day, SIBO, it has completely altered my life since getting this vaccination. My doctor has two twin girls about my age and they both have digestion problems after receiving gardasil Thank you I have a young daughter and have wondered this exact question posed by the poster and your response has given me great pause about this issue which may come up in years to come. I am sorry to hear this wreak havoc on your life, but simultaneously thank you for sharing this detail to help those of us that have likely been decades misdiagnosed celiacs now raising children. Thank you.

      "Wondering what kind of life my brother could have had - if  he had celiac - constantly haunts me" My sympathies that is just tragic, as this story is.  I hope you are at peace knowing you are aware of your celiac and help so many lost, scared, and confused celiacs here. It can never bring back your brother but I hope it can give soften some of what you feel that was/is beyond your control. His suffering and your loss has made you a better advocate to yourself and in your work helping us. I don't like my body or my  brain on gluten either. I do fear that people overlook the toll inflammation takes on the brain. It likely may explain decades of mental illness that was brain based inflammation unknown until changes in technology advancement catch up. However consuming gluten to study how one enters psychosis may not be the best method. Do no harm.

    • Gardasil And Celiac
      I have this same issue! I got gardasil in 2009 and have never been the same since. Celiac disease, thyroid problems. I used to be healthy and active and since I got that shot I have never been the same.
    • Gluten does WHAT to the brain?
      I saw this the other day too & like Karen, wondered at the last line of the article. The article had me once again thinking about my deceased brother who was dx'd paranoid schizophrenic in his late 20's. He also had alternating constipation/diarrhea  but "they" always blamed it on his meds for the schizophrenia. We, his family, knew he had those issues prior to him being prescribed the meds but there is no telling the medical community something when you're talking about a mental patient.  Okay, I know the guy is selling something but the research noted in the article is valid: http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2013/06/22/gluten-grains-cause-schizophrenia.aspx We knew about this back in the 50's & going forward. They even coined the term for it "bread madness". Why have we not recognized this in the psychology/mental health/institutions community for all these many years? Why does it seem to have been just shoved under the rug like some dirty little secret?  Wondering what kind of life my brother could have had - if  he had celiac - constantly haunts me.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
      https://youtu.be/IU6jVEwpjnE Thank You,
