Ok, ok, so you're probably all sick of seeing my new posts, but so many questions!!

I know that many of you have suffered from fatigue or other various things not necessarily listed on the items of symptoms for Celiac Disease. However, aside from Fatigue, I occassionaly notice that I run out of breath pretty quickly..running up two flights of stairs.

Now take note this may all be due to my lack of exercise in the past few months. (As running, stir the bowels which causes abomdinal pain..AHH!!) so I think my lungs just may be out of shape.

Anyone else suffer from this? Its great I've lost weight, but I'd rather be back to exercising and do it that way..
Thanks!
:huh:

I have fatigue too but not sure if it's related to Celiac or something else. I am sure Celiac could cause fatigue as your body could be malnorished and fighting against itself.

I hope you begin to feel better soon!

I'm not certain how long you've been on a gluten-free diet, but I noticed in the beginning that by cutting out the breads, pastas, cereals, etc. (easy carbs) that I was more tired than usual too. Exercising became very difficult. What I could do easily before, become a struggle, etc. Once I began to eat more normally, this seemed to go away. Try snacking on something like nuts (I love cashews! Lol!) in between meals to keep your metabolism up but not cause energy spikes (like chips and candy do.)

Just a suggestion. B)

Thanks for the replies. I'm not gluten-free right now. but I know the lack of carbs will zap it energy from you intially.

I was still excercising before i finally went gluten-free and I also noticed that before the diagnosis, in the span of two months I went from dancing everyday practically allday, I could barely run on the treadmill for 5 minutes without heaving. Then it all started to go downhill really fast. Fatigue so that i could not even lift my arms and sometimes i thought i did not have enough energy to stand up.

According to Dr. Cynthia Rudert, fatigue is the MOST COMMON symptom. Not diarrhea -- fatigue. It was my first one.

My shortness of breath continued to persist until I dropped dairy. I think dairy effects my lungs.

I have the same tightness in my chest. It started in march with shortness of breath, numb feeling in face, chest tightness,muscle weakness and the feeling of a fluttering heart. My husband called 911. The ER said it was anxiety. This as been going on since 3-20-04, gave me a relaxer and sent me home. At a follow up visit with my own MD, I was walking down the hall to leave his office and my body went limp. I was admitted for observation. All the MRI,CT, EEG came out normal. Pseudo seizures is what they suspected along w/depression.With this I did not agree. The one thing that was found was that I was aneimic. I was active at work, H.S. special ed, gym 4x's week, and having a normal active life with my husband and 3 kids. I postponed my monthly dues to the gym because I was on the treadmill and stepped off the side and went down.
I diagnoised w/celiac disease in july.
I was taken by ambulance again when I tryed to return to work after summer break. I lasted 3 days. This SUX!! I want my active life back. Sweeping the floor is enough at times to do my in. The doctor told me after the spell that I can not drive anymore. I am 39 yrs old. My kids are 3, 7, 14 yrs. I hurts me to tell them we can't plan something later on the day or the next, because one minute i'm fine up and talking, the next minute starting to pass out. OH MY!! I did not mean to carry on and feel sorry for myself this longggggg. Thank you anyways for listening.
I feel like my thoughts are all over the place. I hope this all makes since.

I just posted on "What were your first symptoms? I suffered with utter fatigue, abnormal heart rhythms, breathlessness, etc. Didn't get any relief until I went to a hemotologist doctor and was diagnosed with extreme anemia. I had to get an iron fusion which was the beginning of my recovery. All my problems were related to Celiac Sprue. I never had any bowel problems.
