I Feel Ugh

2 posts in this topic

Over the weekend I got contaminated and was just starting to feel better. Tonight we had a family birthday dinner out and I am sure I got it again. I am so bloated and out of breath. Tomorrow will be spent in bed. I can't see me climbing my stairs to get to the main part of the house, I will be so fatigued by then. I went up about a half hour ago and my legs were aching so bad already.

I feel like I can't breath, but I can but it is just such a struggle. I have an inhaler but I know it isn't asthma itself its the food.

It makes me want to drink so much water, I feel parched. So I drink a lot of water then feel even more bloated.

This is depressing, we are going away for a long weekend and will be eating out the whole time. I am scared. We love to go out, we always say we are doing the Rachael Ray thing. The show where she would visit an area and eat at diffrent places for a budget. We don't worry too much about the budget but we plan ahead and know what kind of money we are willing to spend in the first place (not much lol).

So far the waitresses have no idea what I am talking about except one at bar/pub. She came out from the kitchen to tell me something was gluten-free, that she knew to say that impressed me. We were in down town Seattle and more people are aware in the city, but the other places we ate at, hmm they don't know what it is. I just say wheat allergy then I usually say ya know gluten. Tonight she had no idea though.

Cripes this is really going to suck.

I slept on it, after I realized how bummed out I was. Actually I cried myself to sleep. I do know that the major depression I went through for years was not cool to deal with - I used to bake a lot for my family (mainly growing/hungry boys), a lot of whole grain breads and such. Of course I ate them. Anger, depression, brain fog, weakness. UGH I don't want this coming back if only for a day or two or three. I think when the symptoms come back they seem so much more pronounced because they were gone and I don't miss them.

I know its seems over whelming at first. I think that when you are first diagnosed you should try to eat in only....get yourself back to health, and regain your strength. If you are feeling as crummy as I think you are, (I remember that feeling well) you must take care of "you". Then you'll see, you can start baking, and you'll trust eating out better, right now you can't take the chance. The future is a bright one :) Janet

    • Hi Laurabella, Yes, you could have celiac disease!  It is important to keep eating gluten until all testing is completed, including an endoscopy with biopsy samples if the doctor recommends it.  The doctors usually do want the endoscopy.  The biopsy samples of the small intestine lining (4 to 6 samples) are checked for microscopic damage that indicates celiac disease.  Gall bladder problems can happen with celiac disease.  Your pain could also be from intestinal damage in any part of the small intestine. Some things you could try while you are waiting for your tests to be completed are stopping all dairy, and taking peppermint tea for gas in the stomach.  Celiac disease damage makes it hard to digest dairy sugar (lactose) and that can cause bloating and pain.  Constipation and diahrea are also possible fun symptoms. Welcome to the forum!
    • Hi Beachgrl, We have had members with microscopic colitis before, usually in addition to celiac disease.  Have you been tested for celiac disease?  The reason I ask is, it is much better to be tested for celiac before starting the gluten-free diet.  The primary tests for celiac are to detect antibodies to gliaden in the bloodstream.  Those antibodies start to decline when a person stops eating gluten, so the tests become useless. There is no reason a person can't have more than one digestive system disease.  So it is smart to be tested for celiac disease if you can get the testing arranged.  Any change in symptoms after stopping gluten is an indicator that gluten is causing a reaction of some kind.  It could be celiac, or it could be non-celiac gluten intolerance, (NCGI).  There aren't any reliable tests for NCGI yet. Welcome to the forum!
    • I have microscopic colitis. Having a bad flare of D.  On Budesonide for first time for this. It's helping some- only on it a week. Do you think gluten free would help even if tested negative a few years ago?  Was gluten free yesterday and no BM changes. Even had cramps this AM that wasn't really having before. Thank you!!
    • Do you want to tell us the name of it ans where it is located.  maybe someone else will be looking for a restaurant there. Also, it is very helpful if you go to Find me Gluten Free and review it.
    • Hi. Im currently under consultants at my hospital,  and have just been for a blood test to test for celiacs. My symptoms are.... Low weight (8stone and 5ft6tall) Joint pain,particularly my hips and lower back  Severe pain in my gall bladder area which happens spontaneously... Especially after eating foods containing gluten.  When i have foods with wheat in i pain in my  right side just under my bottom rib, i become a bit spaced out and cant focus on anything. Also get diahorrea aswell. I recently contracted C-Diff and was in hospital for 4 days very poorly. Im 29years old (female) and the doctors r trying to work out what is wrong with me. I have always struggled to gain weight,  even after having 2 children i am still only 8stone. I was just wondering if u think i could have celiacs?  The pain in my side has been on and off for 7years! And the last 3years its been severe. And it definitely comes on as soon as i have gluten/wheat.
