Anyone Else Have This?

8 posts in this topic

Hi all, I am just wondering if anyone else has headaches with muscle weakness, difficulty concentrating and coordination problems. For the past few days I have had these symptoms and its beginning to scare me. I have not yet gone gluten free because I have not had my biopsy yet. My blood work was positive though. I am just wondering if this is part of Celiacs or something else!

Thanks! :)

;) yup--me too, had those symptoms--i have had headaches all my life though so it is sometimes hard to determine if it's a regular headache, a gluten problem, stress--i do have the difficulty concentrating :( deb

Yes, I have had headaches, muscle weakness, and difficulty concentrating. It's not very fun.

Yup. My coordination and muscle pain and weakness was so bad they looked at MS, Carpal Tunnel, peripheral neuropathy, RA, lupus etc.

They found nothing. I feel it is hormonal because going on the bc pill helped but the only other thing that helped were several bouts with predinisone. I am almost to the point to look in further again.

;) i keep reading the post in here and i do have to say that when i look back i do believe the worst i felt started just after taking the birth control pills--my ex wanted a daughter so much and after our third baby i decided i would go through pregnancy one more time trying for a girl--i was always sick when pregnant, by the time i found i was pregnant i had decided i didnt want anymore babies, that 3 were enough, but :P i was already pregnant with our 4th son and i was so sick the whole pregnancy, i was anemic the whole time and borderline gestational diabetes B) so after him i decided to go on bc pills--i got so sick with them and became pregnant with our last child--i cant say now that i was disappointed about having her :D --i finally had my baby girl and she was so precious :D --i have always told her that she was a wonderful surprise, never an accident ;) ---now when i look back, the bc pills may have been my trigger too, if not, they sure pushed me along--deb :(

I had all those symptoms. For years we thought I had ms but the mri wasn't showing lesions - we were stumped. I could barely walk down the stairs or carry my son. The headaches were horrible. I couldn't bear the sun or any kind of heat either.

I went through that for years - sometimes it would subside, but then it would come back again. It all disappeared on the gluten-free diet - just a day into it I felt better immediately, and i've been fine ever since (aside from some gluten mishaps that send me to the toilet - a symptom i NEVER had BEFORE!)

Ive been gluten-free since Feb04 and had all of those complaints and more. They did improve when I started the diet but I still find myself very fatigued all the time. I have to work hard at comsuming enough calories daily with the limited things I can eat.

    • 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.
