Throwing Up
0

10 posts in this topic

I ate some pizza with wheat today. Dumb, I know. Believe me, I've learned my lesson.

I thought I would be okay, because it was just part of a piece, but a few hours later I threw up. I had been eating wheat for 16 years before I was diagonosed and never threw it up. I'm 17, and was diagonsosed a couple months ago. Why would I suddenly throw up wheat if I'd been eating it for 16 years with nothing happening? I have been avoiding wheat, besides that pizza.

Perhaps it was somewhat psychological? Once you knew you ate something you should not have, you realized you made a big mistake. And that mentality aided in the regurgitation of food?

It also could have been the combination of dairy and wheat. I found that the older I got the more lactose intolerant I became. I found it harder to keep down all in general, especially milk.

Sarahann, I was eating gluten for 48 years before I went gluten free. Never once could I attribute throwing up with gluten. But now since being gluten-free, I have had the unpleasant feeling of wanting to throw up and throwing up. So it can happen.

I loved to eat bread and pasta and never, ever had a reaction from it. Now a crouton can produce a reaction, usually as diarrhea but I have had nausea too. It is strange but in a way it is also satisfying having the confirmation that my body needs to avoid this stuff.

I'm the same way. It's interesting how are bodies "almost" get used to the gluten.

Hi, my daughter is also 17 and just recently diagnosed. Everything hit her about a year ago this month and it took them a while to figure it out. One of her main symptoms was the vomitting due to the casein in dairy products. Everytime she ate or drank dairy products she would throw up not from the wheat. When I suspected her to have celiac I took her off gluten and she was still vomitting. Then I read on this site to eliminate dairy and when we did no more vomitting. I hope you figure it out. In the meantime you might want to eliminate dairy and see what happens.

Yes, but look what they do to us in the process of dealing with this gluten :o

I have been gluten free for 3 months now, after realizing I have been celiac for over a decade.. I am now the textbook definition of a super sensitive celiac. I had no stomach symptoms when I was eating gluten, however, I had several other symptoms. Itching and inability to drink whiskey were the 2 things that led me to my answer, as apparently dr.s dont ever seem to get it. Now I have a more sensitive stomach than ever. I believe it is healing..and actually digesting food. Anytime I have even the slightest cross contamination, I vomit now. Boooooo.Usually just once with food. If I drink out of a glass that previously had whisky in it or something I didnt realize had grain alcohol in it, was fermented with wheat, etc..I throw up for 4=6 hours like food poisoning. Clockwork. This is what led me to becoming gluten free and figuring out what the hell was Wrong with me. I am going to be 30 next month. Hopefully I wont sleep through my party! If you are in portland oregon, holler and lets have gluten-free meals! Grass fed animals, as that is all I can eat anymore :) I could use some new styles of food!

    • Advil (ibuprofen) is gluten-free, but can be a stomach irritant, especially if taken on an empty stomach. That said, I will also place my bet on the garlic and onions. As Raven said, eating more than once a day may also help. An empty stomach is likely to be an irritable stomach.

    • Thanks for posting.  I know it is difficult to talk about these sorts of things even on a webforum.  It is good thing for people to be aware though about celiac disease and that it can cause mental problems.  Gluten can cause brain damage and it can cause anxiety. If the brain does heal it may take a long time. I know that gluten can cause anxiety and obsessive thoughts.  My experience has been similar to your experience. When I first quit eating gluten I had a similar constant loop and strong negative feelings. There are lots of people on this forum who get anxiety when they eat gluten. Some people also experience gluten withdrawl where they experience anxiety after giving up gluten. It can take a long time for the body to heal and for obsessive thoughts to go away.
       It is normal for people to socialize with each other and to be comfortable about it. You said you have problems still socializing and being around people. It might be a depressing thought but it sounds to me like you still have problems with anxiety.  I would recommend considering what options you have available to treat the anxiety. When I quit eating Gluten I still had some symptoms, even though I felt much better. I have been slowly recovering over a period of about three years. I had obsessive thoughts even after I quit eating gluten.  Now I very rarely if at all think about those things. My experience is that my mind would latch on to certain things that caused me anxiety and focus on those things. Sometimes my focus would shift and I would latch onto other things. My ability to socialize has also improved greatly with time. I have made some dietary changes which I believe have helped greatly. It sounds to me like you have obsessive thoughts about things and maybe some brain damage. My experience has been that my obsessive thoughts about different things went away with time. I feel my obsessive thoughts were caused by gluten and not by what people did around me or any events. As my brain healed I became more self aware and things became less stressful.  I can't give medical advice on this forum but I can talk about my current diet and my experience with celiac disease. My experience with gluten is different from a lot of other people so it is a good idea to ask other people and to talk to a doctor.  I avoid oats and avoid almost all processed foods. I buy certified gluten free food. I eat healthy and I exercise every day. I take st John's Wort as I have read studies that say it may be as effective as some other anti-depressants for treating certain types of anxiety. It is available over the counter. I started with a small dosage and then stepped it up over time. I think it helps a lot.  This is also something that you should talk to a doctor about first. https://www.researchgate.net/profile/Martin_Mahoney2/publication/7426926_St._John's_wort/links/540d8acc0cf2f2b29a386673.pdf A lot of people with celiac disease have vitamin deficiencies.  Vitamin b deficiency can cause anxiety. Some people do not process the synthetic form of vitamin b (from normal pills)  very well, and do better on an activated form of vitamin b. I take:
      1 activated vitamin b12 daily
      1 activated vitamin b6 every once in a while. 1 regular vitamin b multivitamin
      1 magnesium pill every day.
      St Johns Wort daily.
      1 zinc vitamin daily
      I drink lots of Chamomile tea and decaf coffee. I avoid most caffeine. 
      I think each of these helps lower my anxiety level.  I eat fruit with every meal. Canned fruit from walmart is cheap and good for you. I eat salad and and vegetables and avoid dairy.  I eat frozen fish often as it has healthy proteins. Eating healthy is very important. I eat potatoes and rice. http://www.livestrong.com/article/454179-what-is-methyl-b12/ I avoid eating soy sauce, soy, cheese, aged meats and fermented foods (I do drink certain types of alcohol in moderate amounts.) These foods contain lots of Tyramine. I might (or might not) have "monoaine oxidase deficiency" and if so high Tyramine foods should be avoided.  I thought I might have problems with elevated ammonia in my blood, but I am not convinced of that anymore. I limited my consumption of meat for a while as well as dairy but I am not sure if i helped.  I have heard that Celiac disease can effect other organs besides the brain and those organs can have an effect on the brain.  My current diet is working so I am going to stick with it for now. I try not to worry about things that are outside of my control. Be patient as it took me a long time to recover.  Let me know if you have any questions. There is a lot of information on this site and people who are willing to help.
       
    • Thank you. This is really helpful. I will call around next week.  I just want to heal! 
    • My endoscopy showed i had decreased folds in my duodenum. The biopsy came back and showed that my villi were fine... i have been on a gluten free diet for 6 years because i was just told i was intolerant but never had any testing before. when i eat gluten i get sick for 2 weeks. i came down with issues of other foods in march so they were trying to figure out why and wanted to know if i had celiac are not because that would explain why dairy and fructose are a problem.. both intolerant test for both were negative but the fructose test made me extremely sick but it was negative...      Im trying to figure out why i have decreased  folds in the first place. my Gi doctor is stumped on that to why the endoscopy would show damage but the under the microscope are fine. She is going to call the dr who did my scope and then is supposed to get back to  me..    would being gluten free for 6 year make it so there was damage and then my vili are now fine but still cant be seen in the endoscope?
