It varies for me - apple sauce often works. Almonds sometimes. Tea w/ honey.

Sorry to here you feel so bad-but I do understand! <_<

For me, I always have rice. I really like the jasmine rice, it has a nutty kind of flavor. Also, if you can do dairy, I like cottage cheese and yogurt. Those tend to get me through when I feel really icky!

Hope your better soon!

Hi--sorry you feel so yucky :( I would suggest eating something different--like rice bread toast, cream of rice cereal, gluten-free broth, tea, or any bland, cooked thing that sounds good to you. I would switch off the peanut butter and bananas for a day or 2 at least--if they have not helped by now, maybe they are not what your body is needing. Since I've been gluten-free, I can only tolerate PB once or twice a week. Hope you feel better soon! :)

Sorry you feel so crappy...

I'd go for non-high fiber cooked to death fruits and veggies, and plain meats if you can handle it.

Applesauce, canned pears and peaches (in their own juices), nothing very acidic.

I miss saltines, too. :(

You might want to try camomile tea. Anything with ginger can be helpful as well.

Thank you all so much I guess I have just had a little virus that has taken a while to get out of my system, I had some good homemade bread for lunch with peanutbutter, and I just had some apple sauce with peanut butter mixed in, if you cant tell that is my comfort food, and helps me add some protein and dense calories, I cant stand to loose any weight!

I've read that bananas are good for a damaged intestine.

When I feel yucky I tend to favor tea (regular or peppermint) and white rice. This may sound crazy but I still lean towards a bagel (gluten free ofcourse) when I feel sick. I'll toast a Glutino bagel and put some peanut butter on it.

Hope you feel better soon. :(

I had read somewhere that Kale is very healing for the intestine. Even early in my diagnosis I ate a lot of it. Unlike some green veggies that are hard to digest, kale really does make my gut feel better. I saute it in a little olive oil, and sometimes mix it with Lundgren Family Farms brown riceor Bob's Creamy Hot Rice Ceral.

Sounds a little crazy, but I was willing to try anything. The sauteed kale all by itself really works for me.

Potatoes always feel good on my stomach when it is hurting. Either baked or nuked and I add EVOO and salt for taste.

You might want to try a different nut butter or hemp seeds for protein. Also, I can ususally tolarate rice protein powder in water. Juice is always too strong when my stomach is upset.

Hope you feel better soon ... marcia

I've noticed that I feel that way from time to time. I think it is worse when i eat less or not at all. Although it hurts when I eat. It seems to get better when i can get back to a regular diet. Have you decreased your intake of food? Just a thought. Do you take anything like pepcid? Sometimes I just make way too much acid.

I hope you feel better!

And Im about to eat a pack of Almonds. So I am puttin forth some effort, hopefully soon I will feel back to eating like I love to, like I said my gentics are naturally thin so I have to pack on the food to maintain my weight, Im about 105 and 5'7

    • 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.
