Is This The Gluten/wheat?
0

4 posts in this topic

On Saturday night we had company coming, so my family ate out. I foolishly ate croutons, and half of a piece of bread. I was perfectly fine that night (except a few stomach problems)! Yesterday, as we were taking company around we ate out again. I had grilled chicken with BBQ sauce. (it was a BBQ place so everything had BBQ sauce!) It was either eat and risk gluten or starve (and I was SO hungry!). My mom who has Celiac said she was fine! I, on the other had knew immediately after eating the meal, that there was gluten/wheat in it somewhere. I had the usual twinge in my stomach right after I ate it! I was fine until we drove to the beach later. Before we left, all I had was and iced coffe with lactaid milk in it and sugar. I started feeling sick in the car. I got REALLY dizzy! Then as we got the the beach I got nausea, and I started feeling weak/my arms and legs got heavy. As we were walking back from the beach I felt like I could not breath and was going to pass out in the sand! I made it back to the car though, but my hands were shaking like crazy! My face also got really flushed (I felt almost like I had a fever!). I've gotten this several times before now. Is this from the gluten/wheat, or is it from caffiene? I'mjust so confused! My mom just thinks I didn't eat enough, but I ate alot yesterday!

It certainly could be a combination of things like caffeine, eating gluten and milk(in the coffee) together, low blood sugar, heat...

But, I have had this happen to me with just eating gluten(accidentally)!

I got REALLY dizzy!  ...I got nausea, and I started feeling weak/my arms and legs got heavy.  ...I felt like I could not breath and was going to pass out...  ...my hands were shaking like crazy! My face also got really flushed (I felt almost like I had a fever!).

I felt like I would fall off of the floor, and I was lying on it!

It's like being really drunk ...and the room starts spinning, too!

What a horrible symptom to have! I feel for you. :)

I think it's the gluten, 'cause it happens to me, too.

Everything you described is exactly what i feel after eating gluten. Really dizzy and really nauseated and my arms get heavy and i know that i wouldn't make it walking around the block. This is how i discovered that someone sold me the wrong iron supplement that wasn't gluten-free. Listen to what your body tells you, it will definitly let you know when you have been poisoned.

I've also experienced this several times. I would get really dizzy and feel like the room was moving and in my worst episodes I would still be conscious but my eyes would black out, like I was blind and my hearing would be almost completely gone. It was the most weird feeling ever and the whole time I was flushed and felt like I had a fever and that I could possibly die. Thankfully this hasn't happened for over a year now.

    • Eeek confused! Positive biopsy, negative blood test???
      I would hope they would check for the other reasons for the endoscopy results.  A GI might not check for all of those so you may need to check with your regular doctor to start that process.

      The second link I gave you was to a series of online video courses, you can try those for free to see if its something you think might help. There are also a lot of worksheets you can download, the first link had some I think but there are plenty of others out there if you search online.  Finally I had another look and found this: http://www.getselfhelp.co.uk/step1.htm  Which looks like a decent 7 step program Obviously its not as good as a dedicated session with a CBT counsellor, but the above may give you some tools you can use, especially when your thoughts are spiralling into a destructive circle. You could also search to see if there's any group sessions in Melbourne, that's how the NHS delivers it, they would be cheaper and there's really no need for one on one CBT, because it's more about delivering knowledge of the toolset. I approached it very sceptically but found it of some use, although at the time I was still under the gluten influence so it never tackled the root problem. The game changing aspect of discovering this is that you now know why the psychologist sessions didn't hit the mark, how could they when the root of your depression was your illness? My sessions now are far better and more enjoyable than when I was under a gluten fog.  Aside from all this the other advice holds, eat well, exercise, get sunlight every day and the longer you're on the diet the better you should get.  Oh and at least NI put up a hell of a fight in the Euros, hope you got to see that down under!
    • Depression / anxiety issues
      Funny enough that a naturopath at a mind & body convention that I attended last week said I was also deficient in selenium. You put your finger into a small holder (Similar to having your heart rate checked) she said I'm deficient in b vitiams, selenium vitiam d, she also said Somthing about having a lot of mercury in my body, to be honest it all went over my head as yet another thing to deal with so I haven't looked much further into it as it was all just to much, I have a print out of the results that she gave me tho, I'm going to look into it. Thank you for taking your time to reply to this thread 
    • Depression / anxiety issues
      Thanks for replying, I have not yet tried Cbt, I did meet with a psychologist for 2 months when I was really in the deepest depths of depression but it didn't really help, I couldn't concentrate at all during our sessions my anxiety and negative self talk was trough the roof at the time, and after loosing my job I could no longer afford the $150 sessions, I don't have medical insurance as I am currently waiting on my permanent residence visa to come tru ( originally from Northern Ireland) I might look into some Cbt sessions to see if they help, I'm willing to try anything

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
      https://youtu.be/IU6jVEwpjnE Thank You,
