Coping With Mistakes
Posted 22 August 2004 - 06:12 PM
I know there is no treatment other than a gluten-free diet but surely someone somewhere found someway to help cope with the mistakes. While nothing is proven, does anyone know anything that can ease the pain and help it move through the system faster? He has found a few cups of yerbal mate tea helps to ease some of the symptons. Anyone have any other suggestions?

Everyone experiences different reactions. Mine are vomiting and horrible diarrhea for hours on end. I get severly dehydrated, bad enough that I've ended up in the hospital. What my doctors give me now is anti-nasuea meds, which help on a, almost, daily basis. When I have my reaction, it like the worst case of the flu that you can ever think of, so I try to relax myself with the heating pad on my stomach and then my husband makes me peppermint tea. After all the "activity" I then drink vitamin water to regain my strength. For all of my episodes, I have out of work for a solid week.
So what do I do? I am so careful thank goodness I haven't had one of those experiences in a while. I just say to myself, if I am in doubt do WITHOUT!
I hope this helps you a little. Have a great day!

When I have cramping pains, bloating and gas, drinking lots of strong peppermint tea, doing yoga or pilates positions to 'push the gas through', walking or just drinking lots of warm water helps resolve my painful symptoms. To cope psychologically, doing gluten/casein/soy 'sleuthing' to determine the food culprit for my symptoms really helps me feel more in control of an out of control situation (those awfully painful symptoms). Besides just riding out the symptoms as best I can, I want to do whatever I can to prevent a recurrence. So I try to track the ingrediant in whatever I ate which was responsible for my symptoms.

Maybe I will try to stock up some peppermint tea and give him a heating pad. Being a “normal” person I don’t have to worry about as much as he does, but, I want to try to help him as much as possible.
