Taz,

It sounds like you've been through a LOT in the last few months. Some of these things take time to get over, and you need to give yourself time to heal.

If you have allowed yourself time to grieve after your loss, then that is awesome.

As far as the running and training, you may need more time to heal from the emotional scars than the physical. If you want to go back to the gym, then go, exercise, get back into training. Do not expect to be able to run as far or as fast right off the bat.

You WILL recover. We all do. We are here to hear you vent and offer advice. But it will take some time. Do not let others advancements get in the way of your recovery from both the celiac and the accident.

And if all else fails, the old addage may apply here "That which doesn not kill you only makes you stronger"

I hope you feeel better soon, but you should also draw on the strength of those around you who you can counton for support.

It's okay to be mad, the fact that you are continuing

your training tells me that you're determined and that's

good for you physically and mentally. And while

perhaps I haven't gone through anything near what you did,

I was in a nasty car wreck 3 months before my national

soccer cup that I compete in (just last week in fact).

So yes, it does suck to watch everyone advance while

you're in pt and can't do much. Not only could I not

train - I hang out with those women they're all my friends!

It was already bad enough that I was the "bubble child"

with food allergies and celiac!

For me, balancing my totally limited diet was really hard -

for fast carbs all I can eat are rice noodles, potatos, quinoa.

For protein (the absolute most difficult thing) I eat

shelled hemp seed, drink hemp protein, and make my

own veggie protein burgers with sunflower and pumpkin

seeds, quinoa, flaxseed meal and add some hemp protein

to them (can't taste it if you season it right). I eat tons

of veggies which are also carbs.

When I was still crashing and burning - I got my iron checked

and guess what - anemic - so I take a liquid iron supplement which

has helped. I also use a sublingual b-complex since I don't eat

meat (you need b-12 from somewhere). Prior to my workouts

I usually drink an energy drink (along with tylenol and my inhaler B)

so I don't fall apart) I make sure that I am hydrated too.

It took me over a year to come back from the attack of celiac -

and I'm still not quite there yet from the auto mishap, so give

yourself some time and flexibility but don't give up!

You will get there just put your frustrations into finding

the foods, supplements and routine that works for you.

Hope this monologue helps some!

MmHmm, that little green monster is rearing his ugly head. It takes time to recover from physical injuries, more time to recover from emotional injuries. Celiac causes all kinds of problems, one of them being that your entire body is trying to heal. Keep on keeping on, one day you will suddenly realize how easy it is again. Look at this as a test of whether or not you really want to run again.

Sorry, I really do understand how frustrating it is. I've been an athlete all my life and for the past 10 years I've had health problems and just can't seem to keep up the same level. And it's not just because I'm getting older. For me, the key is to just keep on going and do the best that I can and try not to compare myself with other people. But I know that's easier said than done. Good for you to keep it up and not quit! Maybe not a lot of words of wisdom, but I just want to give you a little support and encouragement.

thankyou for not judgeing me harshly, the green monster has a big hold of me i think and i hate that. thanx also for the advice, i have to let you know tho that the accident wasnt serious i was back running 2 weeks after but it hit me mentally rather than phisically. i will try to get a hold of this and work through the emeoinal stuff and work on my diet to get enough of thr right carbs. thankyou all for letting me vent and be so understanding.

      Thank you everyone. I have scheduled a second opinion. He last biopsie came back and he is lactose intolerant.     
    • Gluten ataxia...?
      I was explaining that some people have other trouble that is immune related and caused by eating gluten, but doesn't effect the gut in a noticeable way. According to the paper that I quoted there are some people which have different types of brain problems but don't have inflammation when tested by a biopsy.  The author used the term "non-Celiac gluten sensitivity" to refer to anyone who has any brain trouble that can be traced to gluten but without obvious gut inflammation.  There are a lot of different possible ways gluten can effect the brain some may not be related to the gut.  It could still be an immune system problem.  Normally "non-Celiac gluten sensitivity" refers to just a food intolerance.  Withdrawal symptoms are not normal and could be indicative of an immune system response of some sort, but I don't know for sure.

      Hi Richie I've put the above in quotes as you have described in the first and second sentence how I felt six months prior to my DX.   In my own case, in the end I concluded it was anxiety after consulting Dr Google!  It was such an alien feeling to me, I couldn't even think what it was, particularly as life was pretty good at the time.  Anxiety is a problem for a lot of celiacs prior to diagnosis, and often after glutening after going gluten-free. You mention breathlessness, this of course can be for reasons such as anaemia (again a common celiac problem, I had this prior to DX) but of course also can arise if you are anxious.   Re 'gluten free' - Flowerqueen is right, from what I have read on this forum some people really do seem to react with less than 20ppm.    But perhaps some other things to consider...  could there be something wrong with the batch you have consumed?  Might it be worth contacting the manufacturers?   That said, you could , as Flowerqueen suggests, have a problem with another ingredient, in the product or something else you consumed. In the past I have had a terrible reaction - fever, trembling, diarrhea, stomach cramps that lasted up to three hours the last three times I ate..... broccoli, of all things.    Who would have thought that possible?  I have often thought I should try it again, just to be sure it was the broccoli, as it is a 'super food' that I ought to have in my diet, that I like very much, but the thought of having such a reaction again has put me off. I do hope you will find some answers soon.

      Hi Richie,  I've not heard of this drink before, as I live in the UK, but any drink made from barley is something you should avoid.  There's a brand in the UK that makes lemon and barley water and orange and barley water and Coeliac UK say it is not safe for people with Coeliac disease.  (Our labelling laws in the UK changed a couple of years ago).  You say the drink you had was under 20 ppm, which is acceptable (usually) for coeliacs, but a lot of people are super-sensitive to gluten even in very small amounts.  I recently had a similar problem with something which was supposed to be okay for coeliacs, but when I checked the website of the product, for all it said there were no gluten containing ingredients, it was produced in an area where gluten was present, which was enough to put me off and must admit, the symptoms you describe sound very much like I experienced at the time.  (Personally I'd be avoiding that particular drink like the plague from now on). One other thing though,  have you checked the ingredients to see if there could be anything else in it which you may be intolerant to?

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!

      Week 4 of the gluten challenge- wheat cereal every morning, regular bread every day, and wheat tortillas for my lunch wraps. Right now, body aches that seem exercise related (weight lifting and running), even though I am doing the same intensity of weight lifting and running I've always done.  Just a few more weeks until my blood test. Counting down the days.
