Am I Going Nuts !

5 posts in this topic

Hi folks, new on the forum but have been diagnosed with celiac disease, biopsy & blood tests. I have been gluten-free for about a week now and feel a very slight improvement although my consultant told me I have quite severe damage to stomach lining and surrounding areas...since going gluten free I have been experiencing some quite weird symptoms, forgetfulness, shaking right hand, cramp, sore neck & with helping my 10 yr old to do his school homework an inability to even do simple arithmetic....this was the worst feeling as I am very good at Maths.

Has anyone came across this before.



Aye Yours.

I'm just guessing here but if you had severe damage to the villi in your small bowel, then your physical condition is possibly still deteriorating because one week is not enough time to heal significantly and start restoring all the nutrients your body is missing. I had the brain fog and muscle and joint aches and pains for week and weeks and weeks.

If these conditions continue to get worse, though, I'd see your doctor.

:D hi big scott and welcome-----i too now realize i had symtoms such as yours--at the time i didnt relate it to celiacs--i read things in here and i think--wow, that was me---after going gluten-free, for months i had terrbile hip pain at night--it would even become a part of my dreams--whatever i was dreaming about, i would be in tears from the hip pain and i would wake up in tears hurting so bad--from what i read in here, it sounds normal for recovering celiacs to go through these little quirks---now whenever i forget something i tell my man its the celiacs fault ;) there has to be some pluses to having this disease ;) i promise, in time you will start feeling better :rolleyes:

Thanks Deb,

I'm still trying to take all of this in...up until 2 years ago I was the fittest guy on the planet and a soccer coach, although I coach twice weekly it takes an awful lot out of me and at times trying to explain to others what it feels like also takes it out of me...It just got to the stage I kept it to myself for fear of sounding like a whinge who was always complaining.

I am glad now that I can focus and look forward to improve things and it has helped reading other peoples experiences.

Thanks a lot,

Aye Yours

BS ;)

      If you cant be sure then don't eat it!  
    • Gluten does WHAT to the brain?
      I'm ok, just a little tired right now.  Lots of stress getting elderly parents and in-laws taken care of. My thyroid took a dip low (no surprise there) so I had to increase dose by a quarter grain. Overall, I am not dragging all day but waking up and getting going in the morning is slowwwwwwwww.  I'm sure you understand that! Yeah........Barty.  I thought of her for DAYS on end and it just saddens me to no end that such good people are the ones being taken.  Sometimes life is just so unfair. We all know that but there are times when it really hits you in the gut. There are times I think they are the lucky ones with the way the world is going these days. This terrorism plague is unnerving and I am really getting mad about it. Dear God, please stop this shyte!  I also miss nvsmom and others who have not been heard from. I hope she is feeling better and is just busy with life.  I got glutened on vacation about 6 years ago on the first day in Liverpool.  Jeez, was I sick!  I know how you feel but take heart........that was the last time I was bagged on vacation.  The longer you are gluten free and heal, the faster you recover from hits. You also get very good at not being glutened. It has been almost 2 years since it happened to me last so after 11 years gluten-free, I think I am doing well with that. I still have a little work to do with the vitamin D levels but I work so seeing much sun isn't happening.  My levels have doubled but they are still under 50. This whole Celiac thing is a part time job!

      Hang in there is hard and frustrating.  Good job getting that appointment moved up.  I've done too...I've called daily looking for cancellations.  I can also remember counting down the days until my appointment.  ((((Hugs)))) and please let us know how it goes.
    • So I've been glutened....
      Miso soup has gluten in it, doesn't it? =/ I know that I've been avoiding it, which is a big shame because I adore miso!
    • Kissing and gluten
      Hi guys. I know this is a topic that has come up before, but I'd appreciate a little bit of advice. I've been 'courting' a guy for the past few months; nothing has happened yet but we have a proper date in a few weeks which is likely to lead to kissing. He didn't even know what a ceoliac was until a few days ago; I don't think he'd caught the hints that I'd been dropping beforehand. English isn't his first language - he's east Asian. Anyway, I've heard about being potentially glutened via a kiss. How do I broach this? I don't want to scare him off or make him think that I'm a lot of hard work; I know, I know, he's going to have to accept me as I am, etc. but for someone new to the entire thing, it is likely overwhelming. It would be for me if I'd never heard of it! Do I laughingly bring it up beforehand? We aren't going for food so if he isn't eating, just having a cup of tea, will I still need to be careful? If this seems safe, do I just let him kiss me and then bring up afterwards that any future kisses after food will have different precautions?  It all feels so clinical! He's a lovely guy so I do think he'll be understanding, but if anyone has any advice of first hand experience on how to approach the topic without it being a weird moment, that would be great.

      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. Thank You,
