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:
