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.

    • Hello, I see you posted this a long while ago, and perhaps--I hope-- it's no longer a matter of concern, but I thought I'd mention that shortly before I was diagnosed for celiac's, I had distinct yellow blotches on the corners of my eyelids toward my nose. Some months after I had stopped eating gluten, the yellow gradually went away, and--as it just reappeared now several years later, I googled the issue again.  I am only speculating here, but I do believe it is related to liver problems, which, in turn, are related to celiac's. I don't think liver function tests cover all aspects of liver health. I say this because when I was pregnant I developed a temporary liver condition called interhepatic colestasis of pregnancy (ICP), but my liver function tests had been fine. (The condition is diagnosed based on bile levels in the blood, not on liver function). I discovered upon some research that (of course!) ICP  can be associated with celiac's disease.  My hunch is this-- that celiac's presents two problems to the liver: 1) the malabsorption of nutrients--esp. Vit. K2-- that are vital liver health; 2) since gluten registers as a toxin to the immune system (I think?), perhaps the liver gets overloaded processing so much toxic material. Or perhaps there's some other reason. At any rate, poor liver health and celiac's do seem to be linked, according to a few articles I've found. Anyway, hope your problems are resolved now.  
    • my daughter did stool test from enterolab but this gluten sensitive blood test is from http://requestatest.com/tests/search    
    • OK, was your daughter tested by a doctor or did you do one of these order online stool tests? And the same question goes for your tests. Can you give a link to the company?
    • NO. Approx. 1/3 of the population carries the genes for celiac but that does NOT mean they will ever present with celiac. Only a small percentage of them will. A gene test is really used more to rule out celiac rather than to diagnose it. What I meant was that since your daughter is diagnosed and IF you carry one or both of the celiac genes then there is a greater chance you are celiac or "early stages" especially in light of your symptoms. All 3 of those factors weighed together was what I was referring to.
    • by the way, I do find the lab who does the gluten sensitive test Gluten Allergy IgE Test This test is used to determine if a person has an allergic reaction to gluten, a protein found in wheat, barley, and rye.  Roughly 1 in 30 adults and 1 in 40 children suffer from a Gluten Allergy.  An IgE test looks for antibodies which develop in a person who has a particular allergy.  Gluten Allergy can display symptoms similar to other conditions such as Celiac Disease.  Unlike an allergy, Celiac Disease can do permanent harm to the body if left untreated.  Allergy testing when a person is experiencing symptoms can help identify or rule out an allergy as the cause.

      Gluten Allergy is typically less severe than other Gluten related conditions like Celiac Disease.  People with Gluten Allergy will often experience abdominal discomfort, bloating, gas, constipation, or diarrhea when they eat products containing gluten.  These symptoms usually stop when a person cuts gluten out of their diet.

      A Gluten Allergy IgE test can be ordered to help determine if someone allergic to gluten.  This test can also be ordered when a person is testing for Celiac Disease and has had negative results on Celiac specific antibody tests.  An allergy test can also be ordered prior to Celiac testing to rule out Gluten Allergy as a likely cause for a person’s symptoms.
