What are you eating? Are you also cooking for gluten eaters? Does this happen everywhere or only at home? Do you eat out a lot? Do you eat a lot of mainstream supposedly gluten free food like for example doritos or corn chips? You are early in on the diet, have you cut out dairy products, all dairy not just lactose? Have you been checked for casein intolerance? What you are experienceing after eating sounds like a gluten reaction, have you deglutened your house, your hand lotions, your soaps, your pet foods, your can opener?

Thats your answer. You don't need to yell at me again. Many of us take a long time to realize how gluten free we really aren't. I was trying to help you. Don't worry it will not happen again.

this exact same thing has been happening to me! it is so frustrating. my doctor told me it was possibly reactive hypoglycemia, but she wasn't sure. my glucose tests are always very normal. the only way i have found to get rid of it is if i cut out all carbs and starches. i eat meat and veggies, that's about it. i am down to 105 lbs. though which sucks - i would love to gain some weight back. the doc said it could be temporary since our bodies are shocked by the sudden change in diet.

i really feel for you, i know how crappy this is.

Its tough to work after i eat lunch. I have lost 15 lbs in 4 months, and i wasnt fat before. Maybe as we heal it will get less severe. Let me know if you get better.

I believe that Ravenwoodglass was sincerely trying to help you by asking questions off the top of her head that we all needed to ask ourselves early on in the diet. :)

I know that I developed additional food intolerances after I went gluten-free. There is soy in some of the foods you eat every day. My suggestion would be to go back to just the natural, whole foods and when you (hopefully) feel better, try adding the other foods one at a time.

Did you notice any difference in the way you felt when you first went gluten-free? I ask because if you felt better at first, but then began to get these symptoms lately, it could very well be another intolerance.

yeah, i have the same problem with trying to work after eating lunch and feeling so lousy and dizzy. i did talk to another woman who had something very similar and she got better after one year. she ate pretty much meat and veggies for a year and then it finally turned around. she thought it was due to something related to the liver. a year sure seems like a long time, though, with everyday being so hard.

please let me know if you find anything that helps, too.

It seems like all of us have more than one issue going on at once. I have been meaning to post something but have been putting it off. I get really confused with a lot of my issues sometimes, but I just had to respond to this thread. I have been dealing with problems for over 10 years now and have never been diagnosed with celiac but I KNOW there is a problem with gluten. I also have a problem with my thyroid and a dairy allergy. I just recently went to the doctor again (I had given up for over 6 years) and am about to run more tests. My new doctor is going to do a test for stomach emptying because I have nausea and bloating and burping after meals. He is looking into gatroparesis which I guess is a slow stomach emptying. I've been doing research and for the last week I have been eating more frequent and smaller meals and have been careful not to each too much fat. I also have been being careful about not eating ANY dairy. And I have really started to feel much better. It just seems that it's never just celiac alone. There are other issues that need to be dealt with as well. So look into other intolerances/allergies. When I was feeling sorry for myself about having to deal with such a limited diet I would cheat and eat dairy and ended up feeling bad for it. Unfortunately, by the time we all realize that celiac is the problem, there are other issues that must be dealt with. Also, since I stopped eating all dairy, I can smell again, and I don't wake up with all this mucus. And I am much more depressed about giving up dairy than I am giving up gluten.

My reply to Ravenwood came off rude, but wasnt intended to be. Sometimes things sound different whe you read them than when you are writing (no body language or tone of voice) I sent her a message expaining the confusion. Ireally appreciate everyones help. I would be lost without you guys. Thanks. How do i get tested for other food allergies. Anything besides enterolab? I dont a lot of cash right now.

I understand how that can happen, and I'm glad you contacted her :)

True allergies need to be tested by an allergist. They use skin-prick or blood tests.

For intolerances, the best way to test is by elimination diet. Some of the more common foods to suspect are dairy, soy, and corn. I would start there, unless you have another food that you suspect.

Take your diet down to the foods you know are ok--things like meats, fruits, veggies, potatoes, olive oil, etc. These are not written in stone, it's what agrees with you. Don't include packaged foods or things with lots of ingredients.

Every 5 days, introduce a suspect food. See if over the next few days you have any sort of reaction. It's helpful to keep a food log to keep track of what you ate and how you felt.

It could be a migraine. I get a lot of pressure behind my eyes after I eat certain things...I suspect, for me, it could be msg and/or sulphite intolerance (or intolerance to other foods?)Kinnikinnick Wolfsbrand almond cookies give me an instant headache along with bloating...because they are made with pea protein and starch, that's likely one of my triggers. I also sometimes get a migraine from exposure to bright, flourescent lighting or a combination of hot temperature, bright light and motion (part of my motion sickness.)

Just a suggestion...

You can start by cutting out the soy milk and replacing it with rice milk. Might help, might not...just an idea.

You can also check the ingredients of the bolded items for things that might bother you, and maybe you'll see a pattern or an ingredient to question (it is also important to note that all Kraft products contain msg, even if it is not on the label). Preservatives and artificial addatives in those products make me feel bloated and fatigued, so I like to make that suggestion, but I realize some people are just lucky and don't react to those kinds of processed foods.

I hope you find the answer soon! :)

How about eating your salad with a home made dressing, at least for a few days? I usually sprinkle some olive oil, lemon juice, salt and herbs on my salad. I'm sure other people have more recipes for different types of dressing. That way you avoid all the additives and stuff that bought dressings always seem to have.

I don't know, sorry. I'm casein intolerant - hopefully someone else will chime in and let you know.

You could make it from scratch. A google search came up with many recipes. I've always had luck with Canadian Living for great tasting recipes: http://www.canadianliving.com

This has been happening to me for the past few weeks. I'm a self-diagnosed celiac. It's been 1 1/2 yrs. My life has drastically changed yet as of January I have felt my best. So, I think my villi are healed. But now I'm dealing with this nausea thing and my doctor also mentioned the hypoglycemia. But I never heard of reactive hypoglycemia like the other post said. Maybe that's it. But for me, I hate the nausea. I rarely get the dizziness unless I have eaten something made in a wheat facility so I try to avoid that. And I noticed that sometimes things claim to be gluten-free but maybe they are only gluten-free when you eat just the recommended serving. (LIke gummy bears that I buy at Walmart - if I eat too many, I'll crash - even though they claim gluten-free.) <_<

    • Do you mean something like a protein powder you could mix up?  A lot of them in the US seem to be gluten free.  Maybe just go to your local store and read all the labels?
    • Yeah I ended up allergic to corn, olives, sesame, whey, and peanuts and intolerant to dairy, soy, yeast, enzyme issues with breaking down meats, and egg yolks, along with extreme bloat with any kind of carbs/sugars in moderate amounts. And very adverse reactions to certain artificial sweeteners. So your not alone in all the other issues cropping up, it happens as our bodies adjust.  I eat a bunch of stir frys with veggies, egg whites, plenty of  avocados, and toasted and raw forms of almonds, coconut, cashews, walnuts, hemp seeds, pumpkin seeds, flax seeds, sancha inchi seeds, chia seeds, and sunflower seeds in all forms including making them into butters, spreads, and incorporating them into sauces.   Most meals are forms of soups, omelettes, and stir frys. I do the seeds and nuts on rotation same with my veggies and snack on fruits in small amounts along with some homemade baked goods I make for markets. I do suggest a rotation of foods, my dietician said I need to rotate my foods to prevent more issues, making sure I am off one one for at least 7-14 days at a time completely. I find changing up the spices and rotating my cuisine base works well. I also make puddings, and protein shakes along with nut/seed milks, and different bases and extract flavorings to get my random cravings Taken care of. Guess take what you can from this and and see how it can help you,    As to the tinging, I ended up with both B vitamin and magnesium deficiency issues, the magnesium one caused a fire like tingling in my arms, legs and back, along with muscle pain. Ended up on a doctors best powder form of it so I can dose it out right, and found epsom salt bathes helped.  
    • Hi, I've gained so much knowledge on this forum over the past few months, which I am so thankful for. I can see how much hell people are going through with this disease and it's so lovely to see how much support and advice people give to others on here. I'd like a little bit of reassurance and advice myself from anyone that can help. I've been gluten free for six months. Two weeks after going gluten free I realised I also had a problem with corn so cut out processed food. Over the following weeks and months I continually had problems with food; fruit, dairy, a lot of vegetables, nuts, soya....it's basically dwindled down to just eating potatoes (not white potatoes), cucumber, lettuce, small amounts of red onion, spring onion, sprouts and beetroot. There may be more things I could be okay with but to be honest I'm too scared to try.  Is this all normal? Am I an extreme case? I've been taking some digestive enzymes and probiotics for about six weeks, my acid reflux has dramatically decreased but I always have a lot of loud noises going on in my guts, I'm guessing this is the probiotics working.  I've lost nearly 3st in weight since this started - which I'm not complaining about as I was overweight due to thyroid problems. I've had loads of blood tests done recently, all organs are working 'great' according to my doctor, the only thing they've picked up on is ketones, I seem to be having a glucose problem, which might explain my exhaustion and weight loss. I also have permanent numbness and sometimes tingling in one of my legs and sometimes hands and one shoulder, I thought it could have vitamin B12 deficiency but that's okay according to blood tests. I would be greatful for any replies. Thanks for reading.
    • Hi everyone, I am doing job in restaurant at evening 5 to 12 during working hours no time to do a dinner. I'm thinking to make a shake but don't know the gluten free vitamin or supplement brand which one is good for me and easily available in Berlin Germany to make me fit cause last one week i feel weak. I'm 28 year old. Sincerely
    • Hey there just wanted to warn anyone that has other allergies- these crackers may not be a good choice! I'm mildly sensitive to MSG- I only react if there's a giant amount like in Chinese food or Ramen noodles, etc.  I literally have a to eat TONS of a the offending food before reacting.  Anyway, I was excited to try these Trader Joes pumpkin crackers, kept hearing about them on the radio .... and they're gluten free!  (I have Hashi's).  I ate about 3/4 of the box last night. Woke up this morning with a red itchy face and nasal congestion, headache, anxiety. Hallmark symptoms for me of high MSG intake. (It does say yeast extract on the side but it's pretty far down the list). So if you're sensitive.... stay away! Apparently these particular crackers are loaded with it.
