Nausea After A Massage
0

8 posts in this topic

I don't think this is Celiac related but I was wondering if anyone has had any experience with it or knows what might be going on. My fiance's sister took me with her to get a massage yesterday and I felt quite unwell afterwards. I told the Massage Therapist about the gluten issue and brought my own lotion so I don't think it was Celiac related.

I started feeling nauseated near the end of the massage and felt sick and dizzy all the way home (thankfully I wasn't driving). I threw up a few times right after I got home and had a headache and felt queasy and sleepy for the rest of the day. I spent most of the day lying on the couch and couldn't eat much.

Could the massage have caused this and does anyone know why it would have. The massage felt great but it wasn't worth feeling hung over for the rest of the day.

I have had massage therapists tell me to drink plenty of water before and after a massage (especially deep tissue) because the increased blood flow to the muscles and working them can release toxins from the muscles and make you nauseated. Don't know how true it is, but one of the medical types should chime in soon.

I don't know what could have caused it, but last time I got a massage I got pretty sick also. About 1/2 way through I had to have her stop because I was near fainting and thought I was going to throw up - and I felt pretty sick the rest of the day. I had gotten several massages before this one, so I don't know what happened during this one. She did tell me that if you are dehydrated, the massage can make you feel ill. Hopefully someone can chime in with more insight, but just wanted to let you know it has happened to me too!

Ditto both of the above. Must pre-hydrate and re-hydrate well afterwards.

If any kind of bug is brewing in you, it will surface during or after massage.

Do not get massage if you have a cold or feel questionable. Not saying that you did, it's just a general warning. Lots of toxins are released during massage.

It's true, a massage can loosen up toxins and make you feel bad. Drink lots of water. It might not be a bad idea to get one once in a while to help clear out some of the toxins that are apparently lingering in your system.

I get them periodically for this reason. I also drink Yogi detox tea.

Yes...toxins are mobilized during a massage. The fact that you were so affected by it indicates that your body needed some help in eliminating those toxins from your body.

Alot of water could have helped with that. Also, taking some chlorella helps bind the toxins (especially heavy metals) so that they are able to be excreted rather than reabsorbed and redistributed (which is what causes those symptoms).

Ack, toxins -- that sounds scary. Sometimes it's hard to tell if something is making me sick, or if it's a blood sugar issue or just my stomach being sensitive.

But from all of your responses, it sounds like it was a toxin issue. I will definitely have to hyper-hydrate if/when I have another massage. I wonder why my soon-to-be sister in law didn't feel sick like me. I've never thought I was a particularly toxic person. So if I have another massage and make sure I drink enough water, will I pee out some toxins.

I've never thought I was a particularly toxic person.

Actually, everyone is pretty toxic...its the price we pay living on this planet. My Dr. told me that there were studies done where they took random people of the street for testing. The only requirement was that they had to be in good health (no obvious symptoms).

They were tested for a long list of toxic substances...heavy metals, pesticides, PCB, Dioxin, environmental toxins, etc. The results showed that *everyone* had these substances in their body...and in large amounts.

The people in the study were still healthy....meaning that so far their immune systems were dealing with the toxic load pretty well. Its usually when people are having chronic symptoms that their toxic burden is getting to be too high. Some of us are better at detoxing than others....genetics are a big factor in that.

If someone is developing more and more allergies/sensitivities...its a good indication that they are not handling the toxic load very well.

    • Testing After Celiac Disease if IgA deficient
      The DGP IGG and TTG IGG versions of the celiac tests.  
    • Testing After Celiac Disease if IgA deficient
      I am also IgA deficient. My doc took more blood and looked at 2-3 other markers in the blood work , transglutinase, and 2 others. My biopsy showed blunted cilia in sm intestine, but my IgA was low. He suspected Celiac due to cilia so ordered other blood tests. I also presented atypically, burny stomach and reflux...and very little else.
    • Testing After Celiac Disease if IgA deficient
      If you have Celiac Disease, and you are IgA deficient, what do they check on your labs to make sure you are not being "glutened"?

      Hi again Richie, A lot of coeliacs have a problem with coffee, maybe you do too. It could explain the shakes you describe. I am sensitive to coffee, and haven't touched caffeine since last summer. (The detox lasted for 10 days and it wasn't pleasant, so if you ever give it up, do it gradually).  Sometimes when you're intolerant to something, when you have it, it makes you feel 'better' but it doesn't last and usually end up worse, it's like a drug - and in the case of caffeine it is. I also take a daily probiotic (gluten free and dairy free etc)., which is good for healing the gut.

      Cristiana and Flowerqueen, I haven't been officially diagnosed as Celiac but I had a DNA test in March 2015 which revealed I had the Celiac gene on both sides so it was advised that I have a test to see if I did have it. I didn't but I went off gluten immediately and haven't "knowingly" eaten it since. Before the DNA test I didn't have the nausea and trembling type feelings that I do now but I occasionally got the shortness of breath which I used to put down to being a smoker. (I quit almost 16 years ago) Anyway, this morning I woke with the nausea feeling, the trembling, loss of appetite, feeling of doom again but it happens so intermittently. I do have some unavoidable stress in my life all of a sudden so maybe it's all connected some how. But on the plus side my bowel movements have returned to normal and I go often especially after waking and having coffee. (Oh, and Cristiana don't worry about tmi with me. You would have to try pretty hard to offend me and nobody has done it yet. haha) I always think the worse to. The internet and Google are great but information overload becomes a real possibility creating some frightening scenarios. It's just interesting that the coffee with the MCT Oil (Brain Octane is the actual name) and butter makes me start feeling better and the nausea, trembling, anxiety seem to be extinguished by it but coffee with low fat milk doesn't although I do get more energy from it. I did read somewhere that MCT Oil was good for gut health though and if I had to describe it it would be like it just smooths over all the bad stuff with a nice soft lining.  It was recommended in my DNA test that I have more fats in my diet and low processed foods but I occasionally have gluten-free biscuits, gluten-free ice-cream (my true weakness) and gluten-free weet-bix. I've checked most of these items ingredients and they are pretty good. There is a lot of gluten free rubbish out there though which I completely avoid. Thanks GFinDC for your reply. I was going to speak to my Naturopath when I see her about Immune Health. My plan usually involves the Liver Tonic I mentioned above and heavy on the L-Glutamine which, apparently, is supposed to be excellent for gastrointestinal health but I'm not going to supplement with anything just yet until I get my blood work done and see if it reveals any deficiencies. I'm suspecting Iron though. Because I've had recent tests all coming back good I'm thinking a possible scenario would be a die-off effect I've heard of where all the bad bacteria have been killed off but your body can't rid itself of them quick enough so you actually feel or get worse before you get better. That's where the detox strategy comes in and I'm assuming replacing them with Good Bacteria via Probiotics. Again, this is what I have read in the past but it does seem to make sense in some cases. I do feel better in having found these forums though.

      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!

      Week 4 of the gluten challenge- wheat cereal every morning, regular bread every day, and wheat tortillas for my lunch wraps. Right now, body aches that seem exercise related (weight lifting and running), even though I am doing the same intensity of weight lifting and running I've always done.  Just a few more weeks until my blood test. Counting down the days.
