Gluten Free For 3 Days...feeling Sick
0

3 posts in this topic

Hi everyone,

I do not have celiac (according to tests and have been free of GI issues), but decided to go gluten free to see if it helps to alleviate my chronic migraines as well as weird autoimmune skin issues. Anyways, I have been gluten free for three days now and I am wondering if what I am feeling right now if normal when the beginning process of going gluten free or if I am just plain ol' under the weather. I started feeling some mild to moderate stomach pains after eating lunch and breakfast. After lunch I felt like I might need to run to the bathroom but I never did. I started feeling nauseated after work. TMI ALERT: I went to the restroom and part of my BM was floating. I have never had any GI issues like this and am wondering if this is the bodies normal response. ?? Thoughts ??

Welcome to the board.

 

It could be a gluten withdrawal or it could be a stomach bug. After only three days, it could also still be the results of your last "glutenous" meal.  My guess is it's probably withdrawal. There are many who go through a period of feeling worse for a few weeks before we feel better.  I think you'll just have to be patient and wait it out unless symptoms get very bad or unsusal, in which case you might want to check with a doctor.

 

Best wishes.  I hope you feel better soon.

Thanks! I just find it odd since I didn't have gi issues while eating gluten.

    • Yes it most certainly could be a false negative, and I would bet you a dozen donuts that it is (gluten free, of course.   )  At the very least you can be sure it is related to gluten.  These gluten rashes take forever to clear up.  I don't know about you, but whenever I start to doubt my gluten intolerance, I just look at my skin, and the old blood stains on my sheets, and I am reassured that it's not all in my head, and I need to avoid gluten as if it were a bucket of battery acid.
    • Hello, My fiance and I are going to Singapore for our honeymoon next year and I was wondering if anyone knew any cafes/restaurants etc that have gluten-free dishes? We previously went two years ago and enjoyed ourselves so much that we definitely wanted to go back our our honeymoon. Catch is I got diagnosed as being gluten intolerant a few months ago, negative for Coeliac though. If I eat gluten I have bad nausea, bloating, diarrhea etc. Not pretty for a honeymoon :-) I am more than happy to eat fruit at breakfast and make do with steamed rice at dinner etc but if anyone has any ideas on anywhere I can safely eat that would be much appreciated. I don't care how much it costs! Also is it possible for me to bring packaged gluten-free food into Singapore from Australia? I am not sure on the rules. Thank you!!
    • Went in and talked to the manager of our pm and asked about the gluten free pizza, and he told me he can't guarantee its 100% gluten free because of the flour in the air from the other crusts being made.  I value the honesty.   The other employee also mentioned changing gloves.   I was thinking wow great, until I walked out and got to thinking about cross contamination from everyone grabbing the toppings out of the same bins and spreading the sauce with the same utensils.    My son was just diagnosed this week so we are new to the whole lifestyle.   So any help or info is greatly appreciated.    Thanks  
    • Before i was diagnosed 2 years ago i had a severe chronic itchy scalp.  It would develop minor pimple like blisters then turn in to sores from the intense scratching.  At the time the dr i saw did a punch biopsy on the original sore, it came back with a florescent pattern and micro abcessing.  i saw a dermatologist who said it was a staph infection (wasn't checking for dh) sent me home with cream and a steroid lotion, didnt work. Shortly after i was diagnosed with celiac and went back to the dermatologist.  He did a punch biopsy BUT he took it from the top of my butt cheek saying that was the most common spot for dh to manifest.  My results were negative.   my question is...   Can this be a false negative due to the punch biopsy not being taken from skin adjacent to the lesions? since being gluten free the intensity has subsided but is still there.
    • Hi Morna.  I will have to add Tom and Chee's to my list.  I have found so many new restaurants on this forum.  My family's birthday season is coming up (I swear, everyone was born between September-December), so I am going to have to check out the bakery on Campbell Station.  Sneak in some gluten-free cake and goodies and see if anyone notices.  I miss cake.
