I used to be crazy energy girl went to the gym 5 days a week and swimming class before I started getting really sick. I didn't lose weight when I got sick, kinda the opposite I got this weird puffy water-like weight gain that wouldn't go away.

I've lost the poofed out belly and the puffyness and went back to the gym for the first time on Monday. Did 25 minutes of stairmaster ( about died), then did Muscle sculpting class on Wednesday ( took it easy had a bit of trouble keeping up), then did yoga class today ( sat out a couple moves), but I feel amazing and the best part is, I don't really hurt that much. I used to get such bad muscle pain that I would down Alleve like candy and just lie there, exhausted. I took it easy cause its been awhile, but not having that crazy muscle aches is so incredible.

I do get insanely starving though. I came back from yoga today and inhaled my food and was looking for more. I told my instructors what I had been going through ( the yoga guy's bf has celiac disease!)

and they were awesome in response to it, especially since I dissapeared from their classes about 6 months ago unexplicably.

I find that my energy is coming back, its slow but I think mine might be faster than some but I wasn't Really badly sick for all that long ( 8 mos). ( sorry for the bad grammar).

It's been a month and I'm back at the gym, taking it easy but excited about the new rock wall they are building.

Not sure about the swimming anymore because I had duodenal ulcers from H. Pylori, pretty sure that was from the pool.

Glad to hear you are doing so well after being gluten-free. You are much younger than me so your body will respond more quickly than mine has lately :angry: I'm 46 and try to get to the gym, but work and such... Excersize is so good at reducing stress, which I am realizing is harder to handle with the celiac disease. And then when I accidentally get glutenized, I'm out for a week or more from that dang fatigue. So then when i finally get back to the gym I have to start all over again it seems. Keep up the good work!

    • First, do you have celiac disease?  I assume you do.  Have you recently had a celiac antibodies follow-up blood test panel to see if gluten has been actually getting into your diet by accident or through cross contamination?  If you haven't had the test, you should ask your doctor for one.  You could also also ask for a follow-up endoscopy to see if you intestines have truly healed.  This will rule out if gluten is really the problem.    If gluten is not the problem, then your doctor needs to check you for other issues, like SIBO. There is a test to check for SIBO.  Has this been done?   Once a celiac, always a celiac.  There is no cure for celiac disease except to remain on a gluten free diet for life.    
    • I am so confused right now.... 6 years ago I went on gluten free diet... after being on it for the first yr I was 100%better up until 5 months ago in got the "flu" the doctors told me to cut out dairy sonic did and my diarrhea  became better but not completely gone would not have it every day tho. I went to the gi doctor and they said to cut out fructose and dairy and keep gluten out... yesterday I went to the dietitian to see what I can eat and she gave me the list for fructose... she said it should have been on a antibiotic for sibo.... eventually I will be able to add dairy back and maybe gluten.... I said how can I add gluten back when this was my first problem... she goes well through fructose goes hand in hand with it... I said with gluten I vomit and am sick for weeks.... fructose isn't that bad I vomit sometimes but I'm not sick for weeks.... I'm just confused on really what is going on and was wondering if you or someone you know had sibo from gluten and or fructose and how Is this all related?
    • I see no one has responded to your query.  Unfortunately I have yet to try making a pie crust.  It was something I never mastered before going gluten free.  Have you looked on Pinterest?  You might find something there.
    • I honestly feel like both doctors think it's all in my head even though there is proof.  Yeah there was a point when I felt crazy.  That was when I was being shuffled from dr to dr being given individual diagnoses of my problems.  None of those diagnoses ever made me get better.  Seriously I was diagnosed with heart palpitations, neurocardiogenic syncope, I was given a butt load of steroids because a dr felt like I was producing too much adrenaline, freaking had a few tell me I was depressed, and the good ol IBS.  It seemed most wanted to push pills.  It's all just ridiculous!
    • I can't believe your doctors!!! You have a daughter who is dx'd already! Yet the ped doesn't want to test your other kids unless you have a dx????!!! Are you kidding me???!!! That's absurd!!! They have a first degree relative who has been dx'd with celiac already. There is no need to wait to see what you turn out to be!! And then, and then, and then....don't even get me started on your doctor!!! Does he have brain damage? Oh this is insane & ridiculous!  I have never heard of a disease that doctors are so unwilling to consider or test for OR to diagnose as this one! Usually they are hot to trot to make a dx but say the word celiac & they shake in their boots. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
