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

    • Marip, Have you been diagnosed with celiac disease or Non-celiac Gluten Intolerance?  I notice you joined in 2014.  Did you ever go guten free?  How can we help?   Sorry, I'm not a stool expert!  You could Google it...  Malabsorption?  Standard lab tests that check for anemia and vitamin deficiencies, etc.  should help make that diagnosis.  
    • You can eat just a slice or two (or equivalent) of bread a day for accurate testing.   I understand about the high deductibles.  We're self-employed and we pay for our health insurance. 
    • Sure, if it's gluten free, then fine.  I am very allergic (like anaphylactic) to ibuprofen and aspirin.  So, in my case, I would just tough it out.  Go to bed.  Sleep it off.....eventually. My money is on the garlic and onions.  I can't consume those either (damn that zonulin/leaky gut -- google it along with Dr. Fasano).  I just season with salt, pepper.  Boring.  But no gut issues.  I'm hoping like my lactose intolerance (resolved), that I will get garlic and onions back.   Finally, sometimes just eating anything can hurt when you still have intestinal damage.  Hopefully, you'll feel better in two or three hours if it's celiac related.  Longer if it's an intolerance (leaky gut thing....) Hugs!      
    • I read on their website that all Advil is gluten free, I had such bad pinching cramping today(which I don't why since I prepared all my food at home today.) I made a pot roast, salt garlic, onions...No gluten but still pain, That's the only thing I ate today..I don't eat breakfast or anything.   Anyways.   Is it a good idea to take Advil for the cramping? That's how I would describe it like someone is reaching inside me and pinching me and twisting my insides.    This is what I took  
    • I'll give my PCP a call tomorrow and see what they can offer. My only worry is the expense as anymore tests will put me behind in being able to afford to see the GI. I have high deductible insurance but get money put into my HSA. I'm still trying to pay off the CT scan though. Which is why I'm trying to pick and choose which poses the greatest risk for me right now and what can wait. (Though I would prefer not to wait on any of it.)

      I really do hope its only IBS. Though I always worry IBS is more or less a doctors way of saying "I have no clue" at that point. :C

      Again, I'll be sure to give my PCP a call tomorrow then and see what the options are. I can feel a lot better trying the blood work first. however, once that is done, do I still need to be on a gluten diet before the endoscopy? Also, is it ok if I still mildly reduce the gluten. As in, can I avoid a whole wheat pasta dinner, but still be eating the peanut butter crackers? That sort of thing. Again I guess that is more of a doctor related question. I just wasn't sure if in order to raise your chance, you have to mass consume gluten or not. (Its already in just about everything to begin with.)   --Edit--
      I just now reread the part that you still need to be on the gluten foods even for biopsy so I'll be sure to do that too.
