Seizure Like Attacks
Posted 02 March 2005 - 06:12 PM
I know that I am gluten and dairy intolerant due to Enterolab and I have one of the genes. I also have had indigestion, gas,pain bloating etc for as long as I can remember. I have been gluten and dairy free since October.
My problem is that I get these attacks once a month. They feel like a seizure .The last time happened after being at a Mexican restaurant with a friend on Saturday. I had shrimp fajitas with corn tortillas. A short time later my legs started shaking. Then my upper body started. I had diarrhea and then I started vomiting uncontrollably. Then I got palpitations and shortness of breath with anxiety. I was told that I have panic attacks but even when I take anti anxiety meds during an attack they last for at least 3 hours. I also have anti vomiting meds and that doesn't stop it either. I had to stay over my friends house since I live 45 minutes away and I was in no shape to drive home. I have had these attacks for ten years now. (I'm 48) They occur about once every month or so.
My Mom has had this since she was 20. She's now 80. She has osteoporosis and has had pancreatitis, bowel absceses, gall bladder surgery and diverticulitis.
Has anyone experienced this and had relief after a while on the diet? I'm guessing there was something wrong with the meal on Saturday. I really don't want to have a biopsy and I'm afraid to eat anywhere but at home at this point. It has been frustrating dealing with MDs. By the way I'm an RN. I can't figure out what else it could be but severe food intolerances.
Thanks for listening.

I would stick to foods you know for certain are gluten-free for a month and see if it happens again.
Hang in there
