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)

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.

    • Newbie: mother to coeliac kids
      Until he starts getting better he really needs to stick with soft, bland foods. I put a mashed potato soup recipe in the recipes area. What is healthy for a normal person isn't necessarily good for an inflamed digestive system. Anything spicy, acidic should be avoided. Fruit is acidic. I've read that pickled cabbage is good, but you couldn't pay me to eat anything pickled when I was nauseous. Things that I think would be safe are: broth mashed potato soup (the am. cheese and butter make the broth taste great) Baked potato mushy meatballs, no spices other than salt low fat vanilla ice cream with whey in the ingredient list   If these things work out try adding summer squash cooked in olive oil, add salt Summer squash tastes good in mashed potato soup.   Twice as many small meals are easier on your digestive system.   I am not a doctor or nutritionist, just been there, done that, want to help.

      I've just had a call from out GP with biopsy results. She said it confirmed celiacs and has a March 4 level. Does this sound correct?  She said she expected it given his antibodies were the highest she had ever seen.  We have an appointment on Friday for follow up. At least we know for sure now.

      Yes I got and colonskpy and endoscopy back in Oct. They said these tests were negative. However I recently found out at my new DR that notes on my tests(colonskpy ) said cronic inflammation of my intestines. I had also been eating mostly gluten free at least six months before the test. I have the gene for it and a huge amount of  symtoms so the g I dr said she could go ahead and dianose me with Celiacs or I could eat gluten for two weeks and get the colonskpy and endoscopy done again. I chose the first one and I have been feeling better since going competly gluten free. The ct scan is for them to check for cancerous tumors and possibility of Crohns just in my small intestines. She did say that I might have more than one thing going on. I didn't realize that you can't see Celiacs on a cat scan. I know that the tumors can happen with long term undiagnosed Celiacs and I'm not sure if Crohns is related as well.

      Yes, the broth helps. He wolfed some down and felt okay.  He insists he didnt eat anything from his friends. He did however gobble several gherkins last night - I checked they were gluten free but I am wondering now.  Dammit. He loves gherkins.

      Nothing big to add, just want to reinforce what @cyclinglady said.  From what I have learned, your GP cannot diagnose celiac.  The best they can do is find indicators (such as the test you got results for) which are really neither definite positives or definite negatives - they're just warning signs, and refer you to a specialist. See your GI.   They'll be able to give you a real informed opinion so you won't be in limbo.  And as she said, don't cut out the gluten until the GI tells you to - even the GI's tests are indicators that appear as a result of relatively recent gluten intake.

      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.

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!
