Help! A Few Questions

4 posts in this topic

I have a few questions and really hope someone can help me out here. First, what does a burning tongue mean? I've heard it's from Vitamin B deficiency and I've heard it's from specific food allergies. Does anyone know?

Also, yesterday I ate an orange (my tongue began to burn) and it made me sick (gas, strong abdominal pain under my ribs), then for supper I had a chopped tomato with my rice and chicken and that didn't hit me so well either. Today I have been to the bathroom a number of times and am passing all this undigested food including the orange and tomato (sorry for the details). I am beginning to think that I can't eat anything anymore. It seems that various fruits and veggies bother me. I am also lactose intolerant and sensitive towards eggs -- what's left????

Why do all these intolerances seem to be cropping up after going gluten free? Is it because I actually have good days now so the bad days stand out more? I am really confused. The last few days I have felt better than I have in ages (before the orange, that is), and now today I feel like I am at square one. I have been gluten free for about 10 weeks.

hiya. sorry to hear about the problems you are having. just so you know, not everyone's gut will heal in 10 weeks, especially if there are other things youre stomach is not agreeing with. try eating less acidic fruit if possible such as bananas. also im not sure about the burning tongue, but i do know that the best treatment (natural) for B vitamin deficiency is marmite as it is the richest natural source of B vitamins.

Ok, i just looked up burning tongue in the "You are what you eat" Giallian Mc Keith boook which is really helpful as it tells you foods to eat to sort things out. for burning tongue it says it is a sign that your stomach is lacking in gastric digestive juices. "You may also experience tummy trouble if you have this symptom". obviosuly. this book is not written specifically for coeliacs lol. solutions:

try taking a teaspoon of Swedish Bitters daily. It will help to increase your gastric secretions.

Drink a cup of dandelion tea twice a day

Take a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar before each meal

HCl (hydrochloric acid) tablets can help to adjust the gastric juices in the stomach.

As for the food in stools issue, tahts is also covered in here - basically it means that your digestive system is weak. says to try chewing food very thoroughly. also im guessing your stomahc will be stronger after being on the diet for a bit longer. hope this helps anyway. take care x x

A burning tongue can also be a sign of oral allergies. Just avoid that food for a day or two and test again. I was doing this when I ate cantaloupe about 2 weeks ago, but it went away within a couple of days. I eat a lot of cantaloupe. And still do.

Acidic foods are very hard on your stomach. Stick to apples, pears, bananas, etc.

Thanks a lot to both of you for your replies. I should have mentioned in my original post that I take digestive enzymes which contain HCL. Sometimes I wonder if I have too much HCL. I read one website on enzymes which said not to take one with HCL for a long time. As far as eating other fruit goes, apples make me really gassy and give me a sore stomach, pears make me feel sick, and sometimes bananas hit me wrong and I'm in the bathroom with D. Pretty messed up, eh? It gets really discouraging when you have to wonder every time you eat if you're going to get sick from whatever you are putting in your mouth. BTW, I also don't have a gall bladder (the specialist thought that was my problem so they took it out - AAAaargh) which really makes things worse with the whole digestive thing. I think I will try to take some Vitamin B and see if that helps my poor tongue. I am going back to see the gastro specialist on the 27th (not that he's been any help up to this point!) and I will mention it to him. He'll probably suggest some expensive meds, his solution for everything.

Take care,

Marlene
