Tummy Pain

6 posts in this topic

:( My tummy has hurt all night. I ate a couple bowls of salad made from home. all it had in it was tomatoes, lettus, cheese and salad dressng olive oil and vineger from newmans own. and I have been pooping all night.

god I will have to stop eating salads now. :(

I got onto newmans own website and they have an allergy and gluten page that breaks every thing down for each product. the olive oil and vinegar dressing is gluten free. so it had to be the lettus or tomaoes. I eat cheese all the time without probs.

I had problems with salad also. I didn't give them up I just dropped the lettuce. I would make a salad with peeled cukes, zuccinni, carrots and tomatoes instead. Also if you are new to the diet the cheese may be an issue or the raw veggies could be a problem to if you haven't healed enough as raw veggies can be a bit hard to digest. You could also try having a salad with no dressing in case there was something in that your body doesn't like.

Another possibility is that you got gluten somewhere and you had a delayed reaction to it. Sometimes we have to look at what we ate for the last two or three days to find the culprit.

Thank you ravenwoodglass, I think you are right about the raw veggies. I usually respond to lettus this way, sometimes I can see the lettus in the bathroom later, about 2 hours later. I am just stupid in thinking I could eat it now. I am going to lay off the lettus and just eat my cooked veggies from now on.

When I was eating just chicken and pork and my cooked veggies my tummy had acutally started to feel better. I just still have the bloated belly, I still look like I am preggie but there is now way I am. I just need to let myself heal.

I bought some quinoa. I hope I can tolerate that.

I am sooo hungry. :P

Make sure you rinse the quinoa before you cook it. It has a bitter coating on it you need to rinse off. Also take it slow at first. A little quinoa goes a long way and has ALOT of fiber! If I eat to much it *clears throat* looks the same on the way out as it went in. :blink:

i was having issues 60% of the time with romaine or boston head.. so i switched to baby greens and mixed herb salad- which i only have issues with 10% of the time.

im not sure what it is. i have Fructose Malabsorption- but that diet can be different for everyone- i know a girl with FM who can NEVER handle Romaine or Boston Head... EVER. ??

i also worked with a woman who had Lupus- and she was going to eat salad at work one day- and she smelled it first. she said some of the chemicals they use to "wash" the salad with mess her up. ??? so i always wash my "washed" salad.

it may be different malabsorption issues you're having- because ive noticed that some raw veggies are more tolerable where as other vegtables HAVE TO BE cooked.

Zucchini seems to be one that's GREAT raw :)

That's true, because I can eat carrots raw but lettuce always hurts me. But it seams that all lettuce hurts me, not just ice burg. I used to really love red leaf lettuce and green leaf lettuce but not any more. not until I heal anyway. and I hope I can one day eat it again.

    • It only takes a minute to make a difference. Celiac disease has been overshadowed by the gluten-free diet fad. Getting diagnosed and staying healthy is no piece of cake – those of us who have celiac disease struggle to stay healthy. We need better. We need to be understood. We need a cure.

    • If you are one of the approximately 2-3 million Americans with celiac disease, ZyGluten™ may be taken before you eat out at a restaurant or a friend\'s house, as it may help break down any gluten cross-contamination that you might encounter. View the full article
    • 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.
