Help I'm Feeling Terrible

4 posts in this topic

Sorry if this is in the wrong forum. I just need to tell someone. I feel terrible and I am holding my stomach and thats not helping. This is the first time since going gluten free that I have felt this bad. I have been keeping a food diary for the last couple of weeks. I haven't been having milk except in my coffee (very little) then last night I made corn bread needed 1 cup of milk and other things. I made a pot of pinto beans with 1 onion salt pork and some season salt and thats it usuaslly it never bothers me, but I felt a little bloated and I ate it on top of my cornbread. The last time I made the beans I did not make cornbread. Then this am I made a omelete with organic cheese and sour cream and a little milk in my eggs. The cheese and sour cream never bother me as I eat these alot in taco's. I think maybe I had to much milk in the last day. I had to run to the bathroom and I hadn't had to do that lately either. Now I'm sad that I made my self sick. Maybe there was gluten I didn't clean up good enough. I think I will go clean out the silverware drawer I saw a bunch of crumbs in there. Heck I going to scrub down my whole kitchen. Thanks for letting me vent. I guess I will start all over.

I forget that I had taquitoes at my moms when I was there yesterday, I read the label maybe I missed something, I know it said carmel coloring and I have avoid that ingredient since Aug because i read that that shouldn't be a problem. Maybe thats the problem who knows?

Question? Can a person be intolerant to milk and not cheeses and sour cream or did I gluten myself somewhere along the line? :(

Ok I really blew it. I now know why I am sick this am It started last night with a little bloating. Than today with cramping and the big D. Well I took my mother shopping yesterday and I remember that she needed FLOUR so without even thinking about it I picked it up and put in the basket, went to her house and ate a little food not even realizing that I had picked up the FLOUR. Well I can tell you that will never happen again. Usually her in house support person does all of this. Mom ny had 2 strokes 2 yrs ago this Feb, but she is ok not great but ok. Anyway thanks for letting me vent.

I am cleaning out my kitchen drawers now.

Wow - I'm amazed that just picking up a bag of flour made you so sick! I am so sorry you got sick, but at least you know what it was caused by.

I will have to remember to be very careful about things like that. My son is gluten free, but I am wondering if he is getting CCed because he is not feeling as good as he was when we first went gluten free. He has been having stomach aches and nausea.... I did throw out my 2 scratched teflon pans, and wooden spoons. I am cooking in a cast iron pan now so maybe that will help...

Anyway, sorry to ramble, I hope you feel better really soon!

Question? Can a person be intolerant to milk and not cheeses and sour cream ...?

someone who is lactose intolerant (milk sugar) but not intolerant to the protein in milk would show that symptom. Cheeses and sour cream have had much of the lactose digested away by the bacteria culture that turns ordinary milk into those products.

I suppose if you are brave you could test that by drinking a glass of "lactaid" milk, if you are ok with that then the next day try a glass of ordinary milk :blink:

I've tried that and decided that I am not lactose intolerant

cheers

    • Gluten challenge. Random reactions of gluten sensitivity (brain fog)
      hi all, I have brain fog and I suspect that is due to gluten sensitivity.  When I became aware of those symptoms in the past, I did an elimination diet, and gluten introduction  seemed to correlate with the perceived brain fog Then, I was off gluten for a year, but because it is self-diagnosed it is not always easy to explain it and remain 100% gluten free when, for example, travelling or invited to someone's house for dinner. So, I thought I wanted to get to the bottom of this and check for celiac decease first. I have been doing a gluten challenge for the last 4 weeks, and my symptoms are very strange. Sometimes, I eat a slice of cake or a croissant and I can be tired and foggy for the whole day.  Strangely,  there are other times where i can eat bread or a full pizza and have no symptoms at all. Beer is strange, sometimes it affects me, sometimes it does not at all... I am not sensitive to Pasta so far... I am very confused. I thought that maybe it was because the consumed gluten quantity but there does not seem to be any correlation at all. Sometimes, I think that it has to be something else (not the gluten) that is causing those reactions. I cannot understand the random reaction to gluten.  Does anybody have a similar experience or an insight or what could be going on? Thanks!!!    
    • I got WELL!!
      It sounds like things are looking up for you. Happy dance, happy dance! Happy Valentines Day!
    • Help understanding test results??
      I forgot to add this...I only had one positive on the complete celiac panel.  I had a positive on the DGP IgA test, my visual endoscopy "looked fine" but my biopsies revealed a Marsh Stage IIIB (moderate to severe villi damage).  My symptom at the time was anemia.   Keep eating gluten daily until all testing is complete.  This is really important!   Hang in there!    
    • SO HUNGRY. All. The. Time.
      Over my 6 gluten-free years, I have endured this "Starving Syndrome" several times.  Actually, I have lost count.  I am 5'4" and frequently eat more than my 6'4" husband.  My weight has gone from a low of 93 lbs. to my current high of 105 lbs.  I eat as much as I possibly can.   I agree about the fats helping me to feel full.  I'm beginning to test out the "grain hypothesis" as mentioned above. It seems (feels) to me that when I go through a major healing spurt, my body just wants more food!  No idea if this is actually what is happening.  Still, I have come to look at it as a "good thing" when my body wants lots of food.  I just relax and try to give my SMART body what it wants.
    • I got WELL!!
      Update on my progress: 1.  By thorough and consistent evaluation of my food diary (every item ingested for 6 years); I've finally figured out that both dairy and nightshades cause me PAIN!  I had tried eliminating these previously; but it was no help.  I tried again anyway...and IT WORKED!!  Maybe because I'm healthier now?  Never was lactose intolerant; but BOTH these items cause me PAIN!  All over, wish-I-were-dead PAIN! 2.  Just completed 2 courses of Xifaxin.  One in November and one in February.  The first course helped some with the Buddha Belly.  This second course helped a lot!  Fingers crossed that things will only continue to improve.  (I actually think it may be helping reduce the fatigue!  But I won't mention it as I don't want to jinx it!) 3.  Added back rice.  Had been grain-free for 3 years.  Seems fine and maybe even beneficial.  I'm pursuing adding more variety to my diet.  Looking at amaranth and buckwheat.  Plan to discuss diet with nutritionist after my next GI appt.  to get tips on this.  (Had to postpone this appt. due to bad headcold--first in many years!) 4.  Plan to discuss changing levothyroxine brand at next internist appt. in a couple weeks.  Currently taking Tirosint--and love it.  But...investigating other options like Levoxyl since I may have felt better on that.  Sadly, Pfizer was NOT helpful the last 2 times I called them to discuss gluten content/contamination.  Mylan generic was VERY helpful!  Choice to be determined.  Goal is to reduce fatigue. 5.  Continuing with exercise, meditation, drawing, etc.  Paying attention to mindset and emotional calm.  Optimism is my friend. 6.  On a humorous note, my hairline continues to advance!  I always had the highest of foreheads.  Ha!  Now my hairline is moving, from all directions, closer to my eyes!  i actually have developed a widow's peak!  This is too funny.  Sixty-six years old and my hairline keeps getting thicker and more extensive!  Mother Nature toys with me! HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY to everyone!!   Remember to love yourself!
