My Stomach Will Not Stop Bubbling!

6 posts in this topic

I have been 100% gluten free since July 14, 2009. I think based upon what I have read I went through the withdrawls and feeling like a dead zombie but now, this week, my stomach will not stop bubbling. Does that mean I am unknowingly getting glutened?

Being new to the forum, joined last night, I am still trying to understand how and where to post comments. I posed this in the food arena and got great ideas for recipes, but still need help understanding my diagnosis as well as a DD and a DH and so forth.

I was diagnosed as celiac by my nutritionist after receiving my lab results by Kimball in July 2009. She said that since I carry the celiac gene and was having celiac related symptoms I should consider myself a celiac. I am not sure but would love to know which strand of my DNA, alpha or beta, tested positive. I also do not understand what the difference is between DQ2 and DQ8. How can you be gluten intolerant and not celiac? Here are my test results.

DQ2 (DQA1*05/DQB1*02 Positive

DQA1*0501 or *0505 Detected

DQB1*0201 or *0202 Detected

DQ8 (DQB1*0302): Negative

DQ1*0302 Not Detected

My daughters were put on a gluten-free diet in 9/05 due to celiac-like symptoms. I have been mostly gluten-free since then but earlier this year began struggling with fatigue and daily bowel issues. Finally scraped up enough to pay for the Kimball test in 07/09 for myself, out of pocket since Kaiser will only do a blood test, will test the children when finances allow.

I am in the learning curve and still stuck in a bit of denial right now.

Throw out cut plastic bowls and plates? Do not allow gluten in my home? Check ingredients in my make-up? Have a biopsy done to determine how bad the villi look and what stage of damage I am in?

Any help would be appreciated! :huh:

For myself that burbling is a symtom that I have been glutened. The gluten free diet is not something that you can do 'sort of'. It needs to be strict otherwise the antibodies will remain active. You do need to check your all meds and supplements, both OTC and script, makeup, toiletries, be careful of cross contamination, replace any porous kitchen tools that have been used for gluten foods, have a dedicated gluten-free toaster etc. You have found a good place to learn about the gluten free life, welcome. Read as much as you can here and ask any questions you need to ask.

Yes, my stomach gurgles a lot lately. I'm trying to be gluten free but I believe I am getting cross contaminated. I think I have lots of other food allergies and would like to be tested.

Before I went gluten free by our own decision about a month ago, my stomach would be gurgling and popping and making freakish noises every night as i lay in bed. Sometimes we would put a microphone to my stomach to really amplify the weirdness. It was really funny.

But now im gluten free i havent noticed any of that, so my first guess is that you are getting gluten some how. In april i went glluten free, but my pediatrician told me i didnt need to. When I was gluten free then, i was using the same toaster, vitamins with oat fiber and barley grass, and eating lindor truffles which i didnt realize had malt in them.

So check everything and maybe stick to a bland diet where you know you wont be getting gluten.

Good luck-

And have you cut out dairy? I didnt cut it out the first time and i cut it out this time and i think it is making it easier.

You may also experience that gurgling sound if you're eating something else you're intolerant of. Additional intolerances are not uncommon among us here. The gurgling and gas happens to me too if I eat peppers or eggplants or too much tomato. For some reason potatos don't bother me. The best way to figure out what is bothering you is to keep a log of everything you eat. By doing that you should be able to spot patterns.

It seems that once you remove gluten from your diet other intolerances and allergies become more pronounced, or perhaps just more noticable.

I vote for making your kitchen gluten free. Then keep a food (and brand name) diary. After a few day you should find out what food/foods are causing your problem.

If you write out everything you put in your mouth, your will figure it out. Remember things like gum and candy and soda all might contain hidden traces of gluten.

    • Rectal bleeding and abdominal pain
      I had a lot of bad abdominal pain for at least 6 months.  A few of the ER nurses told me to watch soy.  I think they were on the right track because I ended up having a few other food intolerances besides gluten causing the pain.  Food intolerances are tough to figure out.  Could be anything, but there aren't tests to figure it out if it is a food intolerance aside from eliminating it for a while. That being said, it sounds like you are on the right track going to a GI doctor.
      I wonder if they checked your gallbladder? I'm assuming they would have done appendix with it being in that location.
    • Nothing left to eat
      Buckwheat cereal is what I go to a lot.  Oats may or may not be ok with you.  If you go to a gluten free store there are lots of gluten free cereal options.  Instead of cow's milk there is almond milk, coconut milk, rice milk, hemp milk, soy milk.
    • Endoscopy in 9 days after being low-gluten for a year. What to eat?
      I agree Katie, the gluten challenge isn't worthwhile for some people.  Regardless of your test results, I think you know the answer is not to eat gluten anymore.  I hope you recover quickly from the damage.

    • Last posted 2013 - Improving health
      When I first started this journey, roughly 11 yrs ago with symptoms, I had no clue. Eventually, having no luck with doctors (hypochondriac or psychosomatic), I googled my symptoms over and over looking for something... ANYTHING... that would give me a clue. Among other issues, my insides would not move, I was turning gray, felt like death, and had a persistent cough. I can't remember who but someone had posted on the forum and I found some of my symptoms. Eureka, I immediately began a gluten-free diet to see if it made any difference. Of course that was a journey, not realizing what products contained gluten. Long story shorter – first I went gluten-free, symptoms began to reappear, then it was soy (first organic was okay, then not), symptoms reappeared, took out corn, symptoms reappeared, then it was all grains. So the last couple of years I have been grain-free plus no sulphates. Actually, truth be told, my Celiac pharmacist gave me the recipe for health. I asked her if she liked a certain product. She answered, “I don't know, I have never tried it.” I asked her what she did use. She replied, “Nothing out of a box, a bag, or a bottle.” And that has pretty much been my life for the last couple of years. There is the odd product I try but it always has an after effect and I have to way the consequences against the enjoyment of it. I am one of those who react to 1 crumb in the butter, flour dust in the air, sulphates in anything, sometimes things that don't even seem like they would be a problem, like avocados and blueberries when I am contaminated. January 2016 I began this recitation. It is now May 5th, 2016 - Here I am 4 months later and I feel like screaming to anyone who will listen, “Things are improving!! My gut is healing!!” So what happened?? Someone suggested digestive enzymes. My insides were so compromised that I couldn't eat much besides fruit, veggies, and meat; all plain, all without being touched by people other than me. I could barely stand salt at times when I was compromised. Haven't been to a restaurant in years since I am not in a city that would have one to cater or understand this much of a problem. I started digestive enzymes but I read the label wrong and started with 5 first thing in the morning. Whatever... I began to notice improvements in what I could eat. Not anything different but just that I could eat without feeling ill or having my gut shut down. I stayed on those for a month and a half.. then I picked up a parasite from someone living in a very unclean apartment and visiting there and helping to clean. Well, that was a huge battle. I had to eat to discourage parasites. But in the process my insides began to heal dramatically. I was eating blackberries, drinking garlic keefir (which I couldn't have done 5 mths ago and gave me the first clue my insides had improved substantially), drinking oil of oregano or peppermint oil drops in a glasses of water, eating cabbage and green roughage. Drinking water with apple cider vinegar in it and Aloe Vera juice. After a couple of weeks my insides were a whole different story. I had a feeling of wellness that I hadn't had for years! I FELT like trying to eat something different. So I decided to try Gluten-free Rice Chex. Haven't had them in years.... and I am so happy! I can eat them!! (Not to say they are healthy, cause they are processed crap) but I didn't get sick and that was the amazing part. So now I am beginning to try a few things that would have set me back previously, I have made my own crème brulee because I have always been able to eat eggs. But the sugar was causing problems, but now it's okay. The issue I have now is that I want to try things too fast so I am having to exercise restraint. So here is it – parasites are very common, everyone has them however whether they cause problems depends on your immune system. Does it not makes sense that they would cause leaky gut? An over abundance in the gut would destroy gut tissue and take nutrients from a person and possibly put holes in the gut leading to food reactions? Digestive enzymes help to destroy the protective coating around parasites. Foods that discourage them or kill them are blackberries, garlic, cabbage, oil of oregano, peppermint oil, aloe vera juice, Braggs apple cider vinegar and more (google to find). I found medication didn't do anything so I turned to all the other. So this is how it is today. I don't suggest it is the answer to anyone else's problems but when I found this site, hidden in the posts was the beginning of the answers for me.  I may still be gluten, soy, corn intolerant but I am feeling so good now and I just thought I would tell someone.  I just wanted to share. Thanks for reading.

      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. Thank You,
