This is very helpful. I was curious as well. My top symptoms are:

1) Immediate bloating of the stomach. I look three months pregnant.
2) Burning sensation under my ribs and noisy stomach (about two hours later).
3) The worst smelling gas ever. I have people that will attest to this. (From two hours through about 24 from time of ingesting gluten)
4) Loose stools and frequent (bathroom three to four times the following day)
5) BRAIN FOG :( This is the worst of all symptoms. Before being diagnosed I began to think I was getting stupider with age. I couldn't figure out why my vocabulary was shrinking or words would come out wrong. This has made me self conscious and apprehensive to talk to almost anyone. I was always at the top of my class and now I feel like I can't even complete a sentence. (I work with higher education faculty and staff so grammar and vocabulary is very important.
6) Fatigue all week. I can have a 10 hour night’s sleep and wake up feeling like I've never slept at all.
7) Extreme sweating and twitching while sleeping.

1) C first few days then D for a few days
2) headache
3) brain fog/bumping into things
4) sometimes dizzyness and passing out
5)gas (especially at night), but not the smelly kind, just noisy :)
6) depression/mood swings for about a week

all of this takes about 2 weeks to go away for me.

I also have night sweats all the time (not just when glutened), so I don't think those are a symptom of celiac (something else that no dr. can figure out!).

After 2 years, I have fallen into a pretty predictable pattern. This is how I react to gluten via cross contamination--I've not eaten gluten on purpose.

After about 2-3 hours, stomach rumbling, gas and then D. This lasts on and off for a day or two, with some nausea.

When the stomach issues are winding down, the brain fog, clumsiness, difficulty getting the right words out, fatigue, reflux, and anxiety kick in for 2-3 weeks. I have trouble concentrating and just feel generally "out of it". I can function during this time, but it takes considerably more effort <_<

7-Cody, bloating is when you feel and look like you've gained several pounds in your stomach area. It's uncomfortable, your pants don't want to fit in the waist, and it can happen overnight. It's a common symptom of Celiac. It also happens to many people when they've been glutened. Welcome to the board! :)

Hi,

I thought it would be interesting to find out what your most common symptoms are for when you have ingested wheat. Here goes mine! I just would like to compare myself to other celiacs.

1. Excessive Bloating
2. Constipation
3. Gas

Anyone else predominently have these symptoms? I never get diarreah and it seems most celiacs do.


Those symptoms are pretty standard. Some people have constipation instead of diarrhea.

My main symptom for gluten is pain - agonizing pain - on the left side of my abdomen. The gas and bloating I get with some other foods, or for a few days after I've been glutened (no matter what I eat).

1. painful intestinal movement
2. dizzy and cold sweats right before I have to poo
3. constipation followed by the ever explosive soft stools.

Then I have that dermatitis herpitiformis (sp?) for a few days and my dermatologist says its in a non-common spot its right in my crack at the end of my tail bone. ANY one else have that?

I also have and have always had light sensitivity cloudy days are the worst.

thanks for the topic

thanks angel! I wasn't sure... usually when I eat my stomach will get pretty big. Now I'm a skinny guy (6' and 170 lbs), but how do you tell if it's bloating or just because you ate a lot? I did a google search but it's too hard to even focus right now. If I don't feel rumbling or feel anything there really, can it still be bloating?

edit: Also, are there any Celiacs here that would say there main symptoms are C and brain fog by far?

Cody,

Bloating is more than normal distention you might get after eating that is not uncomfortable and goes away. It's more of a tight, overly full feeling--like you want someone to stick a pin in you to let the air out :D

There can certainly be bloating without rumbling--although bloating and gas tend to occur together frequently.

Hi, I'm new to this entire forum, so If I do something wrong, someone please tell me. Anyways, I
was diagnosed 3 yrs. ago. I've noticed that every single time I accidentally ingest gluten I get a cold sore on my lip or several a day or two later, I also have general weakness and stomach pains sometimes with diarreah.[

I have been gluten free for 5 months, with the occasional, oops I think I was glutened...How long does it take for the muscle and joint pain to go away? Every morning I wake up, I feel like I was run over. Also, how long does it take for your intestines to stop dancing around? I don't know how else to describe it. I guess maybe they are spasming, healing, I'm not sure whats going on. But does anyone know what thats all about? Thanks, Janet
