Still Feeling Awful! :(
0

6 posts in this topic

I've been gluten free for two days, and I'm still feeling AWFUL! I don't know what to do. I'm sitting here right now (just ate) with a racing heartbeat, and nausea/stomach problems. Here's what I've eaten so far today:

For breakfast:

Tiny half of jimmy dean sausage

1 egg

Some hashbrowns

peanut butter Envirokids Bar (Gluten free)

Orange Juicebox

Mixed fruuit juice

(everything was gluten free as far as I know)

For Lunch:

steak and red peppers

grape juice and starburst

(also gluten-free as far as I know)

Is normal to still feel icky after the first few day? I was told you should feel at least a difference the first few days, but I almost feel worse!

I am sorry you are still feeling ill. I am new at this too. For me, I am very sugar sensitive and that much fruit juice would definitely make me very nauseated and jittery. Maybe try something without so much sugar. Is gatoraide gluten-free? I drink alot of sparkling waters flavored with lemon or lime.

I hope you feel better soon!

You'll feel ill for quite a while after going on the gluten-free diet....it doesn't just go away overnight, so yes, it is normal

Thanks for your replies! I'll skip the juice for a few days (I think I'll stick to sparkling water!). I can't see how you couldn't feel just a little weird when first going gluten-free. That's a pretty big change after eating gluten for so many years. I'll just keep at it! :)

I could tell a difference after going gluten-free within about 3 days, I wasn't 100% better but noticed the abdominal pain was gone. Hang in there, sounds like you are doing great!

HappyCat22,

In the beginning I had problems with any thing greasy or other wise

high in fat. Even now I couldn't handle hashbrowns, eggs, or juice.

My stomach is healing and I also have acid reflux. I try to follow

the IBS guidelines, ie start the day with soluble foods, applesauce,

bananas and rice cereal. I always start my meals with a soluble

fiber food, potatoes, rice etc. and gradually eat protein which

is lo in fat, tuna, salmon, white chicken, and drink water. I have

been doing this for 6 mos. and it works for me. The racing

heart usually meant that my acid reflux was not liking what I just

ate. I also take a fiber pill before I eat. Never start the day without

soluble fiber. :rolleyes:

    • Hi, No, I do not have celiac  disease. I have an ankylosing spondylitis which is an auto-immune disease provoking an inflammation of the joints. Under the advice and supervision of my doctor and the professor at the hospital I follow a gluten free & casein free diet, which is extremely successful in preventing inflammatory events. And I've been doing so, strictly, for more than 6 years. So I'm not Celiac, but I can tell you that I react strongly every time I take gluten even in small amounts. Even soya sauce, which according to this website has an almost zero dose of gluten, is a lot too much for me. Nevertheless I allow myself to eat food which has been processed in a factory which processes gluten. To conclude, I would say that when you are travelling, especially in a country where celiac disease is scarcely known, you should be twice as careful as when you're going out at home. In the end you can never guarantee that the cook has cleaned his pan after using soya sauce and so on... You can only bet

    • No!  Once you fill the tub, if you sit in it for 3 minutes or you stay for 10... It doesn't change the amount or cost of the water.  That's only relevant if you have 3 kids to cycle thru that same water.  Is your hub bathing in the same water after you? Lol  And even if you add some more hot and stay longer....well...it's much cheaper than perscription meds, vodka or a substance that is legal in a few states.     Of course this only pertains to those of use with running water.... If you make your hub haul water from the creek or well and heat it over a fire....
    • Whether it is bona fide dermatitis herpetiformis, or severe eczema or hives or what have you, we all want to know how to stop the incessant itching.  Through all my research, the solution comes down to one thing: a good long soak in the tub-- with baking soda or Epsom salts or some kind of herbal tea, followed by a rub down in thick expensive lotion.  I don't know about you, but I was brought up to "get in, get done get out."  A long soak in the bath was a frivolous luxury, and a waste of time and hot water.  So now I'm having this awful breakout from forgetting to read a label and got wheated.  And every night I've been soaking in a baking soda bath to relieve the itching and aid my recovery.  And it's been hard! (But it's been very helpful too)  It has been hard to reconcile this "frivolous luxury and waste of time" as medically necessary!  Fortunately I've had no judging, and only support from my husband, who has had a similar upbringing.  Does anyone else struggle with this?
