Does Anyone Else Get This?

5 posts in this topic

This does not happen all the time, rather on occasion.

 

I will wake up in the morning and when i get out of bed my stomach starts doing this weird cramping thing (no other way to explain it). My stomach rolls and I feel like i'm going to get sick. If i ignore it and don't eat anything (which seems to help a litle bit), it can and will escalate into full abdomen cramps.

 

This is something that has been going on for several years. It only happens when i have to get up early as well.

 

Any ideas? I've tried tracking food among other things, none of which hasn't helped.

I get something kind of like that but usually only if I eat immediately after getting up. I generally have to wait about 2 hours before eating a meal after waking up or it makes me sick. Doesn't matter what I eat, either. There is a rare occasion when I wake up starving that I can eat something small and be ok but those times really are very rare.

Wish I could help! Hugs to you!

A few possibilities come to mind...

 

If you're eating too close to when you go to bed, or eat gas-producing food at dinner time, this can cause pain in the morning.

If you are not getting enough sleep, this can actually throw off your metabolism and even affect your blood sugar levels, which can cause morning nausea, cramping, light headedness, etc.

 

Not to be an alarmist, but if it happens often - or several days in a row - you should mention it to your doctor because it could be a serious intestinal thing, or a form of IBS.  Certain types of cancer can present themselves this way too.

The sleep idea is a good one. There are times when i get very little sleep.

 

Before my celiac dx I would have it nearly every morning in one form or another (in this case it was almost always an upset stomach).

 

Now it only occurs maybe once or twice a month, if that.

On occasion I'll wake up with stomach pains, and sometimes feeling a bit nauseous... not because I ate (or drank) too much the night before, but because I didn't eat enough! I wake up starving! Sometimes it will wake me up in the night insisting that I must be fed and have to do some bleary-eyed middle of the night munching just to settle things down and get to sleep.

 

But it definitely could be a blood-sugar thing, or a not enough sleep thing (I also feel nauseous when I don't have enough sleep).

Maybe record what/when you ate the night before when this happens, and see if any patterns show up?

 

No idea if its a Celiac/gluten related problem or not.

    • I have 2 insurance policies, one with my husband's company and one through mine. I also stretch out the more major work into the next year, so I can make the most use of my benefits. So, a dental implant for me takes about a year for me to complete.  I have the post put in at the end of one year and the tooth made about 6 months later. Honestly, the insurance company probably hates me because I max out my benefits every year. You do what ya gotta do!  I still have to pay for some of the work out of pocket but about 75% gets covered. If you pay cash for procedures then they usually charge a lower price. Haggle with the dentist over price. They like getting cash.
    • Did your doctor check for SIBO, H. pylori, ulcers, etc. when he was obtaining biopsies to check for celiac disease?  
    • Oh, and as I mentioned in my own post on pain, xanax. I swear. I tried it just to deal with the occasional panic I had at weird scary symptoms and clueless doctors. I am not a fan of long term use. But I recently found that .25 mg seems to aid with the neuropathic pain. It does not go away, but it helps. 
    • It does sound like a Glutening and you are just a few months into the diet.  It might help if you read our Newbie 101 thread under the "Coping" section.   Here is some information about rice milk: https://www.verywell.com/is-rice-dream-gluten-free-562354 Many, many celiacs are often lactose intolerant temorarily or permanently if you are naturally genetically inclined.  When I am glutened, I lose the ability to digest lactose for a while.   Salad?  Great but it can be rough on a sore gut!  Think soups, stews, easy-to-digest foods that you prepare yourself until you feel better.  Did your folks give you salad after a bout of flu?  Or did you stick with jello and broth?  I am intolerant still after three years to garlic and onions (the lactose resolved, thankfully).  You have a leaky gut (Google zonulin and Dr. Fasano who is a leading celiac researcher to verify that this is true) and that means you can become intolerant to anything (hopefully, just temporarily).   If you are 100% sure that you have had no access to gluten....did you eat out lately?.....then see your doctor.  Remember, celiac disease symptoms can change.  And here is the biggie.....it can take weeks, months or years to heal from celiac disease.  Two months in is nothing, really.  Why?  It takes time to figure out the diet and time for antibodies to come down.  celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder triggerEd by gluten.  once triggered it can go on and on damaging your gut especially with repeated glutenings (accidental or through cross contamination). I hope you feel better soon!  
    • I concur! I literally feel your pain as well. Like, at the moment, lol. Did you have an endo to see inflammation or damage? I am close to begging my GI for carafate or something to coat and protect. How about testing your antibodies to see if they are still rising? I read somewhere here rice milk may not be a good option.  Folks here have also suggested to me to stick with whole foods. Limit processed. Especially stuff that is not certified gluten-free, like chex. I think small amounts of gluten are in processed foids and can add up. I too reacted to lettuce the other day like I was ingesting glass. My sibling  had a food sensitivity panel done and it came back positive for a few things he had been eating a lot of. He can now eat them, but had to cut them out of his diet. Lettuce is probably on mine.  I have been drinking carrot and pomegranate juice,  dandelion root tea with hiney, aloe water, lots of squash, fish. Mild, no garlic, no onions or hot sauce. No coffee. It sucks.  Inflammation can tick off other organs, you mention a "Pain below". Not exactly sure which side, but certainly call your doc Monday. Sooner if the pain increases.
