Sudden Urges To Throw Up?
0

12 posts in this topic

This is really bothering me. The past few weeks on and off I will be doing anything or be somewhere and just feel like I am going to throw up. I get panicky and it is an aweful feeling. My heart starts racing and I feel a bit nauseated. I have never thrown up when this happens, but I am extremely good at not throwing up. Knock on wood, I haven't thrown up in about 20 years. When this happens, I will try and breathe deep and I have to get away from wherever I am and sort of calm down. It goes away, but usually I do seem to have some indigestion with it. I am wondering specifically if it is from reflux. I seem to get reflux when gluttened. This was happening to me sometime a year ago or so when I tried introducing "gluten free oatmeal". When I stopped it went away that time.

I have been pretty unsuccessful with Prilosec for heartburn. It seems to make me sick after four days or so on it.

This happened to me last week while I was getting my hair done and I had to tell her I couldn't finish it, because I wasn't feeling well. I felt like a freak! I am really sick of this and want to know what is going on.

Sometimes I don't seem to be able to figure out how I have been gluttened. I don't eat out anymore at all. I do still make my son sandwiches for his lunch out of regular bread. I also still use shampoo and conditioner with wheat (I know horror of horrors!!!), but I can't find a shampoo that I like that is gluten free.

I am doing so much better, but I feel like I am still getting gluttened more often then I would like.

Thanks for any advice,

Monica

Hi Monica- This is my primary symptom when I've been glutened. I just feel like I'm gonna lose my cookies (and I usually do). i have reflux too so I think that plays into it as well.

Honestly, you've got to STOP using shampoo with wheat in it. There are tons of brands without gluten. In my shower right now I have Neutrogena shampoo and conditioner with no gluten, a Sebastian shampoo with no gluten, Burt's bee's conditioner with no gluten. most companies will clearly list gluten but I've had the best luck with Neutrogena, Burt's Bee's and sebastian.

i bet if you stop using a shampoo with wheat in it, you'll get glutened much less!

Hope you feel better.

Monica:

Bev said some really good things. If you don't want to be sick, you have to make some changes.

I would also like to add, that you can make your son lunch that is not gluten free, but wash your hands well and all the utensils that you use. That would make a big advancement in a gluten free environment for you.

You should also check your hair products, getting color, or shampoo and conditioner, at the hairdresser.

I have learned here on the forum that some people who have been gluten free for some time, often find their reaction to gluten more intense. If you remove gluten from your diet, your body recognizes the invasion of gluten more distinctly and responds as such.

I do hope that you feel better soon.

Dear Monica,

That is exactly how I felt when being glutened as well. The nausea could just come out of nowhere. It got to the point I could not even leave the house for a long time. The reflux even with a double dose of Prilosec daily was so bad, I actually had to sleep practically sitting straight up! Since going gluten-free, it has improved. Getting glutened can happen in a variety of ways. Your shampoo is a possibility. Check your make-up, too. Toothpaste is something else you need to watch out for, along with mouthwash. It is overwhelming the possibilities. Dishes are a possible source of gluten. You need to be careful and make sure they are properly cleaned, especially if food containing gluten has been cooked in them. According to the threads I have read, you need to be using your own cooking utensils and pots. Also, one woman got glutened from her food storage containers not too long ago. Make sure to have your own. Do not let anyone else use them! I am the only gluten-free person in our family, so you can imagine how paranoid I feel. Be sure to clean off the can opener, too. People who are not gluten-free in your home may use it to open something with gluten in it, and that could make you ill, too. :( I hope this information is helpful.

Sincerely,

NoGluGirl

I never get glutened in my home, unless I do buy something without reading the ingredients. I use Pantene shampoo, Garnier Nutresse for hair color, I have used Gleem toothpaste since I was a child.

I had a friend spend her vacation here with me this fall. She knows all about my celiacs and yet I was so nervous with her in the house. She had cookies everywhere, crackers, etc--I was afraid so much of the things being here as I was of her wiping up crumbs and me getting them from the dish cloth or something. I did all the dishes, just to be sure. I was totally exhausted after she left.

My daughter gets the nausea and vomiting, yet she doesnt want to be tested, doesnt want to know.

Thanks for your help guys. I think it is probably related to reflux. I haven't had it happen since I started Prilosec four days ago. I think I will go to a GI doctor here and have a scope done. I haven't ever had one done yet. The prilosec hasn't completely improved my symptoms, but seems to have helped a little bit. I am going to go dairy free and sugar free for awhile and see if that helps. I already don't eat meat, so it is hard to give everything up.

I hate to throw up, so I will do anything not to. Which is what I do, so I don't actually throw up, but just feel like I might and then it passes, but I almost always have indigestion when it happens.

Thanks,

Monica

i get really sick when i eat an kind of breads, wheats, and milk....i throw up at least 3 times a day. i don't know if i have ciliac disease , i haven't been tested yet, but i really do belive that there is a chance that i do. iam usually very drowsy and sluggish after i eat. the other big problem that i have is that my body is completely swollen, especially my face. after i eat i feel like i have just been Poisoned. i use to be very very thin, and now iam at about 200 lbs...but it doesn't feel like fat, it feels like water bags. last year i went on a diet to were all i ate was meats and sourcruat and pickles..i lost 20lbs with in three weeks...and i stopped throwing up, the swelling went down completely, and i felt very energetic. however i gave in and began to eat breads again..and again the weight and sluggish feelings all came back..i know that iam not supposed to be this big and swollen, i wish someone could just look at the stretch marks that are all over my body...i would be very greatful if anyone could give me some advise.....

I think if you are sick that many times a day, you could have celiac disease. AT least see a GI doctor to run blood tests and do a biopsy of your small intestine. Celiac disease can cause weight gain in some people.

Sorry you have been sick. I hope you find the answers soon.

I have this probalem with my reflux. I know exactly how you feel and everyone thinks I am crazy when i describe it to them. It happens a lot when i eat too much food...even though it really isn't a lot of food.

I am on Aciphex for my adic reflux and i am slowly starting to notice a change.

Norah,

Have you tried Nexium or Prilosec?? I am taking prilosec now for four or five days. It is helping somewhat I suppose. I am vegetarian, gluten free and today just went dairy free and sugar free! IT SUCKS! I don't know what to eat and currently my stomach is growling, because I am SO hungry!

I have had baked potatoe (plain with salt), cooked carrots, banana and applesauce. I don't know what to eat! I just can't stand eating and then feeling sick. Sometimes I would feel fine after eating and then another time feel sick. It is crazy! I am not sure how this will work.

What does Aciphex do?

I am so glad I posted about this. I was thinking that I was losing my mind or something. I hate being 32 years old with all this stuff I shouldn't have until I am like 90 years old!

I used to feel like that a lot, which is NOT cool since I have this paralyzing fear of throwing up. I found that taking 40 mg of Nexium twice a day helps.

Dear AmandaL,

I have that fear too. I avoid vomiting whenever possible. It is horrible. I live in fear of stomach flus. I take Prilosec twice daily, 20mg. I do better now that I am not eating gluten. Even with all of that medication, it seemed to wear off after a short time when I ate anything with gluten. I got dry heaves so bad after I ate waffles, and could not figure out why. Since giving up gluten, that fixed that situation. I also had a gallbladder removed a few years ago, but nothing really improved. Finally, the gluten thing came to light after I switched doctors in May. The nausea was so bad and constant, it never went away. Reflux also can be caused by an overgrowth of Candida yeast in the system. I may have that as well. There is still testing needing done for that.

Sincerely,

NoGluGirl

      I am glad you are feeling so much better!  Your posting will encourage others.  Thank you!
    • Last posted 2013 - Improving health
      When I first started this journey, roughly 11 yrs ago with symptoms, I had no clue. Eventually, having no luck with doctors (hypochondriac or psychosomatic), I googled my symptoms over and over looking for something... ANYTHING... that would give me a clue. Among other issues, my insides would not move, I was turning gray, felt like death, and had a persistent cough. I can't remember who but someone had posted on the forum and I found some of my symptoms. Eureka, I immediately began a gluten-free diet to see if it made any difference. Of course that was a journey, not realizing what products contained gluten. Long story shorter – first I went gluten-free, symptoms began to reappear, then it was soy (first organic was okay, then not), symptoms reappeared, took out corn, symptoms reappeared, then it was all grains. So the last couple of years I have been grain-free plus no sulphates. Actually, truth be told, my Celiac pharmacist gave me the recipe for health. I asked her if she liked a certain product. She answered, “I don't know, I have never tried it.” I asked her what she did use. She replied, “Nothing out of a box, a bag, or a bottle.” And that has pretty much been my life for the last couple of years. There is the odd product I try but it always has an after effect and I have to way the consequences against the enjoyment of it. I am one of those who react to 1 crumb in the butter, flour dust in the air, sulphates in anything, sometimes things that don't even seem like they would be a problem, like avocados and blueberries when I am contaminated. January 2016 I began this recitation. It is now May 5th, 2016 - Here I am 4 months later and I feel like screaming to anyone who will listen, “Things are improving!! My gut is healing!!” So what happened?? Someone suggested digestive enzymes. My insides were so compromised that I couldn't eat much besides fruit, veggies, and meat; all plain, all without being touched by people other than me. I could barely stand salt at times when I was compromised. Haven't been to a restaurant in years since I am not in a city that would have one to cater or understand this much of a problem. I started digestive enzymes but I read the label wrong and started with 5 first thing in the morning. Whatever... I began to notice improvements in what I could eat. Not anything different but just that I could eat without feeling ill or having my gut shut down. I stayed on those for a month and a half.. then I picked up a parasite from someone living in a very unclean apartment and visiting there and helping to clean. Well, that was a huge battle. I had to eat to discourage parasites. But in the process my insides began to heal dramatically. I was eating blackberries, drinking garlic keefir (which I couldn't have done 5 mths ago and gave me the first clue my insides had improved substantially), drinking oil of oregano or peppermint oil drops in a glasses of water, eating cabbage and green roughage. Drinking water with apple cider vinegar in it and Aloe Vera juice. After a couple of weeks my insides were a whole different story. I had a feeling of wellness that I hadn't had for years! I FELT like trying to eat something different. So I decided to try Gluten-free Rice Chex. Haven't had them in years.... and I am so happy! I can eat them!! (Not to say they are healthy, cause they are processed crap) but I didn't get sick and that was the amazing part. So now I am beginning to try a few things that would have set me back previously, I have made my own crème brulee because I have always been able to eat eggs. But the sugar was causing problems, but now it's okay. The issue I have now is that I want to try things too fast so I am having to exercise restraint. So here is it – parasites are very common, everyone has them however whether they cause problems depends on your immune system. Does it not makes sense that they would cause leaky gut? An over abundance in the gut would destroy gut tissue and take nutrients from a person and possibly put holes in the gut leading to food reactions? Digestive enzymes help to destroy the protective coating around parasites. Foods that discourage them or kill them are blackberries, garlic, cabbage, oil of oregano, peppermint oil, aloe vera juice, Braggs apple cider vinegar and more (google to find). I found medication didn't do anything so I turned to all the other. So this is how it is today. I don't suggest it is the answer to anyone else's problems but when I found this site, hidden in the posts was the beginning of the answers for me.  I may still be gluten, soy, corn intolerant but I am feeling so good now and I just thought I would tell someone.  I just wanted to share. Thanks for reading.
    • Endoscopy in 9 days after being low-gluten for a year. What to eat?
      Not to mention my hips and knees are killing me and I have really bad calf pains and horrible bloating after just 3 days of glutening. I don't think I could live like this for a whole week.
    • Endoscopy in 9 days after being low-gluten for a year. What to eat?
      I saw my gi today and he said to not worry about eating gluten. I have abdominal pain in the small intestine area and referred pain in my back, indicating pretty bad damage. So I'll just go without the gluten and do the genetic testing if needed.
    • Vagus Nerve Attack
      Hello All: I came across this series of posts from as Google search on "Wheat Vagus Nerve". I find all of your replies very interesting and would like to add mine for those searching for information but with differing symptoms. I have struggled with the vagus nerve impact to breathing as Maria mentioned in the original post, but only an impact to breathing and nothing else.  But my symptoms were brought on not only by wheat, but also by other ingredients such as dark chocolate, probiotics, caprylic acid, mustard, fluoride in toothpaste/mouthwash just to name a few.  I found when I sat down my breathing would return to normal, but as soon I got up, the impact would return. The impact to breathing would come 4-6 hours after ingestion and last for about the same amount of time.  At times I could not even take ten steps without having to stop, not being able to breath even moderately.  The symptoms now are decreasing in severity but not in duration. My doctor checked my blood for celiac and results were negative. A number of chest x-rays to rule out COPD.  I am waiting on an appoint with an allergy specialist in a few weeks to see what they have to say.  Needless to say, it is difficult to maintain a healthy weight. Thanks for your posts, and I hope my contribution is of benefit to others also.

      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.
