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.

    • Hi everyone! I'm feeling very frustrated. I have been dealing with GI upset, bloating, very painful gas(that is hard to release), alternating from constipation to diarrhea for a long time now:(... my symptoms seem to be getting worse. Sometimes I get painful spasms located on my upper right quadrant of my stomach and low grade fever. I recently went to a GI doctor and he put me on a lactose free diet. He said I might be lactose intolerant and may have IBS. He did not think I would have celiac. I did relatively well on the lactose free diet for 2weeks.This diet alleviated some of my gas discomfort. Also, he had me get blood work for celiac, ulcerative colitis and H pylori. My bloodwork was positive for celiac disease. The antibody TTG was high 36.6, which is specific for celiac. My C-reactive protein was high as well 13.4--Norm is 2-7(C-reactive protein checks for inflammation anywhere in the body). They called me and told me I had to get an upper endoscopy, which biopsy showed up normal. So should I just leave it like that, or go to a different doctor and get a different opinion? I'm just wondering why TTG antibody-A  was elevated. I'm so frustrated and I really don't want my symptoms to get worse... is there a lot of false negative biopsy? What should I do:(??? Should I just give up...
    • It's all very frustrating.  I had the skin prick tests done last year and they told me I had no allergies, but I have reactions all the time, such as itching, watery, runny, itchy eyes, digestive issues, stomach cramps, IBS-type symptoms,  mental fogginess, etc.   I had blood tests done by a naturopath a few years ago and my worst food intolerance was wheat/gluten by far.  The naturopath found several other reactive foods but said most of them were mild compared to my reaction to gluten.  I looked online at the ingredients for both products, but it's confusing, the main ingredients shared by these two products were brown rice flour and potato starch.  I've used brown rice in baking with no problems, it could be the potato starch, which I don't often use, but I don't have any reaction to eating real potatoes.  
    • It starts as a piercing itch and the skin turns reddish with a few tiny red bumps. Then tiny watery vesicles appear and itch like crazy. The whole process from start to finish is about 3 weeks and the lesions leave a purplish skin tone and scab. I get them on the back side of both knees near the bend.  Sometimes it's just a few scattered vesicles in the same area. I've had Drs say eczema or herpes. My next step is to find a dermatologist familiar with dh. Thanks for the input.
    • DH can look like that but other things can as well. It would help if you described the way it acts/presents. You can get a dh biopsy. Read threads in this section to find out how the biopsy is done correctly. 
    • my celiac was triggered by pregnancy.  had no clue.  symptoms creeped up (started with indigestion, deemed as 'colitis' or 'ibs') but eventually all the ones you mentioned above all joined the party.  sounds like you are headed in the right direction.  one of the points of diagnosis is the reaction to the gluten-free diet.  keep digging.  half the people on here don't have a firm diagnosis (science really needs to catch up with this disease)  and a false negative blood test is fairly common, for whatever reason - if you've not been eating gluten every day for like 8 weeks, it may not detect antibodies, which is what these tests are measuring.  sorry you're having this dilemma!  hope you find some answers.
