Help! A Few Questions
Posted 06 September 2006 - 08:47 AM
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.

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
