Yes, for me it is anyway. I was nauseated much of the time in the months before being diagnosed. Nausea is one of my symptoms when I accidentally eat gluten and I usually vomit a few times in the first few hours of the reaction.

If you're vomiting, make sure you're staying hydrated. I find drinking water is almost guaranteed to make me feel sicker when nauseated so I usually suck on ice cubes and sip on Pediatyle or even better, suck on frozen Pedialyte.

If you're nauseated even when you haven't accidentally consumed gluten I would look into the possibility of another food intolerance or condition in addition to Celiac.

I spent many years being nauseated (amongst other issues) and not realizing why - I thought it was stress. It's also one of my tell-tale signs now along with mouth ulcers when I've had a little cc issue.

Yes, nausea was my warning symptom to look for the nearest bathroom, quickly!

I was a little bit nauseous before I was diagnosed, but now that I've been gluten-free about 6 weeks, I've definitely noticed that I get really nauseous if there has been some cc. I start feeling really nauseous about 1.5 - 2 h after I eat something bad. it's also a warning sign to me too now that I should make sure a bathroom is nearby.

For many years, my main symptoms were persistant anemia and nausea. Once diagnosed and on the diet, the nausea lessened to the point that I only get nauseous now if glutened.

Extreme nausea. And my very first symptom. In fact, throwing up became daily habit. Sadly, when I was a college student I was accused of being bulimic by my roommates and worse by the campus doctor. I was a very broke college student and one who never went to the doctor, but I was so tired of getting sick all the time and finally made an appointment. I really had no other symptoms at that time to share with the doctor, so the doctor told me I must be bulimic. I was so discouraged by a doctor accusing me of being bulimic it took me years and years to go back to a doctor with all the other symptoms I began having. Nearly 20 years after that horrible experience with the Campus Doctor, I was diagnosed with Celiacs.

Really??? Quite a bad experience for you.....It is really disapointing how often doctors can be wrong and jump into conclusions. I understand they are humans too and they make mistakes but their damage can be really serious sometimes (of course we all say a big thanks for all these great doctors who offer their help and have saved lifes). Any way I hope now - that you are not ....bulimic......!!! -you feel more comfortable visiting a doctor....I never thought that there were people who were misdiagnosed for so many years....Amazing....

Since you had the same horrible feeling of nausea I would like to ask you something....Is there any chance that nausea exists after beeing gluten free??? Or it is strictly related to eating gluten...I know from experience that many other symptoms may keep on for weeks. Is that the case for nausea? Because if it appears only right after eating gluten, and when you stop eating gluten nausea stops too then I must be doing something wrong cause it's been over a week from my last accident with gluten and I am still sick 1-2 hours after eating. Maybe it's one of my other intolerances...

IM like 30 days gluten free but every couple weeks I seem to gte poisoned cause I satrt to get lazy about what I eat...but after my last experience I swore I would never eat gluten again.

So its been about a week since being poisoned and I feel healthy overall i can do my evening push up and exercises after a 14 hour shift. But in the morning its a given to feel nauseated! I also feel nasueasted a bit somtimes throughout the day. Peppermint helps a bit. I hope this feeling goes away the more i recover.

I have had issues with nausea, which seem to be related to gluten, but also blood sugar issues as well. Now, how it plays together I am not sure. However, I have had a horrible time in the past with nausea when I wait too long to eat and my blood sugar gets too low or if I eat too much carbs or sugar- this seems to be exacerbated by the gluten issue though.

I had nausea for more than twenty years and was always told it had to be stress... Then I found out that, besides the celiac disease, I had a dysfunction of the pancreas. I don't digest fat and carbohydrates because I don't seem to produce the enzymes. Now I'm taking pancreas enzymes before eating and the nausea has gone completely. You might check that as well because dysfunction of the pancreas seems to be related to celiac disease very often.

Hope you will recover soon! Nothing is worse than nausea.

Hi

When I posted (I think it was on march) I really had nausea all the time. Now, I don't have it any more!!!. My doctor said it was malabsorption (I also had bad body odour and I was losing weight despite my huge appetite and the huge amounts of food I was cosnuming).

Now all these are gone, I've put on some weight, I eat like a human and not like an elephant and nausea is gone!

But thank you for the info, I guess I have to keep it in mind. You never know what is next........

Meline,

I am glad that your Nausea has finally gone away. Before I was diagnosed I jokingly called my nausea morning sickness, because the first thing I would have to do when I woke up was to throw up. I could not eat anything for several hours after I got up or it would just come back up. This was a daily thing. It got much worse when I was put on prescription Motrin for my arthritis. Then I felt sick most the time. When they finally diagnosed me with Celiac Disease the symptoms took about six months to clear up. But I still can not eat anything for several hours after I wake up. I think it weekend my stomach or something and that has never fully healed. And it has been 14 years now since I was diagnosed. Nausea i the morning is still one of the first symptoms I get if I have an accidental exposure to gluten. I might go a whole day not even knowing that I was exposed. But the next morning my body tells me that I have been and then other symptoms start and this can last up to a week.

Thank you so much for your follow up post. It gives me hope. My daughter is about 5 weeks gluten-free and still nauseated much of the time. :(

    • Question on posting
      I made an informative video for Celiac Awareness Month that demonstrates how small 20ppm is. Am I allowed to post a vimeo link? Thanks!
    • Celiac Awareness on NBC Nightly News
      http://www.nbcnews.com/nightly-news/video/celiac-disease-affecting-millions-of-americans-often-goes-undiagnosed-692131907739   This was on last Tuesday. So happy that a popular national news program is spreading good information!
    • The US Preventative Services Task Force needs our help - tell them why Celiac screening is important!
      I am so angry. I am all about universal screening for Celiac Disease. It is a tricky disease to diagnose. Your only symptoms may be joint pain, depression, or weak nails, which people will try to cure with medication or a good manicure. With roughly 80% of the Celiac population remaining undiagnosed, universal screening could save thousands of lives. This article popped up in my twitter feed regarding US physicians who are unsure whether universal screening would provide “health benefits” for those who exhibit no symptoms (http://www.reuters.com/article/us-health-celiac-screening-idUSKCN0XU2G6?utm_content=buffer3ed50&utm_medium=social&utm_source=twitter.com&utm_campaign=buffer) First of all, no symptom is a symptom! There is something called “Silent Celiac Disease”, and I personally know several people who have it. They experience no outward symptoms caused by gluten consumption, but their insides are being torn apart. If they eat gluten, they may not feel it, but they are highly at risk for long term complications such as cancer, miscarriages, and osteoporosis, just to name a few. Also, let’s consider the non-GI related symptoms of Celiac. Doctors, how many times does someone walk into your office and say, “Gee, Doc, could you test me for Celiac Disease? I have (insert one of the following)”: asthma bladder infections dental problems dandruff high blood pressure headaches blurred vision leg cramps back pain pale skin brittle nails acne bad bread mood swings ADD Anxiety Depression a short temper night terrors panic attacks irrational anger sinus pressure Those are just a few of the symptoms that people don’t think to associate with Celiac Disease, and I’m sure that you, Mr. Doctor, will not test someone with Celiac Disease if they have dandruff. This is why so many people are undiagnosed! People do not recognize the symptoms and doctors won’t think to give them a blood test. This is why I always say – You cannot know that you do not have Celiac Disease until you get tested. “One concern with widespread screening is that biopsies aren’t risk-free and may confirm cases of celiac disease that weren’t causing problems for patients and didn’t necessarily require treatment, Krist noted.” WHAT?????? First of all, most Celiac screening starts with a gene test or a blood test. That aside, ALL confirmed cases of Celiac Disease require treatment!! Untreated Celiac Disease can cause many problems in the future. “Guidelines for gastroenterologists recommend celiac screening for people with a close relative with celiac and for diabetics who are at increased risk for the disease, Murray said by email.” I was the first person in my family to be diagnosed. 80% of Celiacs don’t know they have it. I would have never been diagnosed if my gastroenterologist said, “Well you don’t have diabetes and no one in your family has it….” No one in my family had heard about Celiac Disease, let alone had been tested for it. And we have all of the tradition GI symptoms. This is not a rare disease. About 1% of the population has Celiac Disease. Take a look at your facebook friends list – have 500 friends? Odds are that you know four or five friends with Celiac. MAYBE one of them will be diagnosed. Maybe. The others will be suffering in silence. “The USPSTF, a government-backed independent organization that reviews medical evidence, issues recommendations that are closely watched by doctors and insurers. This is the first time the USPSTF has weighed in on screening for celiac disease, and the task force will accept public comments until May 30 before releasing final guidelines.” This brought me to the USPSTF website. In their draft, here is what is listed as “Potential Harms” of screening in asymptomatic populations. I’ve included my response: False positive – there are rarely false positives Unnecessary serologic tests and biopsies – umm…only do a biopsy if you have a positive blood test. And what’s so bad about a blood test? Anxiety of complications from testing – I had much more anxiety in my pre-Celiac days, not knowing if I would poop my pants at work. “Some patients with positive serology who do not undergo histologic confirmation may embark on efforts to avoid dietary gluten, which can increase costs and burdens and may result in decreased quality of life” “– I’m glad that you think my life is so terrible. “Limited evidence from long-term followup studies have shown that some persons with biopsy-confirmed celiac disease may never develop symptoms or complications” – I’m not going to risk getting cancer, are you??? The USPSTF is taking public responses to their draft, all of which must be submitted by May 30th. I highly urge you to write in and explain why universal screening is important. My Celiac diagnosis saved my life. If universal screening can do the same for a huge portion of the population – I am all for it. This could be the most important thing you do for Celiac Awareness Month. Read the draft and write to the USPSTF here. http://www.uspreventiveservicestaskforce.org/Page/Document/draft-recommendation-statement150/celiac-disease-screening
    • New to this--first gluttened exp. How to feel better?
      Just adding to what others have said.  It does take some time but it's likely you will start to feel better.  It took me about a year but now I feel great.  A good probiotic might help.  I use one from Synergy that my naturopathic doctor sells at her office.  I have gotten in the habit of emailing restaurants before I try them and have had very good luck.  One owner of a very popular restaurant in my area took the time to reply and said she had Celiac disease (she sent great detailed info about their food).  Many of the people responding will even tell you who to ask for when you come in.  Good luck and hoping you feel better soon.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      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.
