Non Coeliac Gone Gf-strange Symptoms
0

5 posts in this topic

I don't know if this is in the right place-bare with me.

My husband was dx with celiac disease 9 months ago.

My youngest child has recently been dx with dyslexia with severe behavioral/emotional dfficulties.He's been expelled from school.

There are quite a few links out there with dyslexia and other problems improving on the gluten-free diet.Thought I'd try him on it as we've nothing to loose.

To encourage my son into this I told him'If you do it,I'll do it'(gluten-free diet)

We are 3 weeks in,no noticable signs of improvement for my son as yet.

However I noticed weird things start happening to my body(this is so weird!)

First of all,within a week of going gluten-free the ezcema I have had on my face ,and scalp has completely cleared.My skin hasn't been this clear for years.

Also I have always suffered from constipation ,now (gluten-free)I'm a once a day girl(from a once a week if you're lucky.)

I seem to be eating a larger quantity of food but I've lost 8 pounds without trying.

All sounds great,but when I go to my friends house once a week,we always eat chicken and salad in a pitta bread.Not a problem you'd think as I'm not a coeliac.

Here's where it gets weird.The first week after the pitta bread I ended up in bed for 2 days with a migraine & vomiting.Just a coincidence?

The second week after the pitta bread,I woke up the next day with a banging headache and can only describe the feeling as akin to a monster hangover,but I didn't drink any alcohol.

Week 3 after the pitta bread,I woke this morning with these symptoms:

Headache,nausea

'Hungover' but had no alcohol

Racing heart

Massively sore tongue,eyes stinging.

The most scariest thing was 2 hours after the bread I came over red hot,sweating profusely,with nausea ,and the strangest 'tingling in my tongue and hands'

Now what's this all about?I don't know if it's the wheat or the gluten,allergy or intolerance.Never expected this to happen.My hands are still trembly and I want to sleep for a week.

Help!

Humans in general don't take well to wheat. So, it isn't too crazy that you saw health improvements. You could have an allergy or problems with gluten.

Going back on gluten will be harsh for your system, like you described. Just because you went without it and it is hard on humans systems.

Really? would you mind posting them, I am very interested in this since celiac runs in my moms side of the family and her niece (my cousin) has dyslexia. Has the diet helped your sons dyslexia?

Anyway... back on topic.

I think you could have a sensitivity to wheat/gluten, an allergy wheat/gluten, or possibly celiac based on your symtoms and reactions. Have you been tested for celiac or wheat allergy?

I'll try and post a linkhttp://www.fabresearch.org/view_item.aspx

As I say,no visible signs of improvement yet,but we'll try anything,cos boy is that boy hard to handle!

Docs won't test him for celiac disease as he has no bowel symptoms,so I'd be refused if I were to ask for one.(nhs system in uk doesn't allow you to choose your doctor)He'd think I was paranoid 'wanna be Coeliac!'(LOL)

Maybe I'll start with skin prick allergy testing,see how much it costs ....

That's too bad :( he should understand that you just want to help your son. Of course you don't want him to have celiac disease. You just want to help him get better.

I don't understand how some of these people become doctors. They are smart but some of them have no people skills and they don't think outside the box. "Well if my outdated textbook doesn't have it then it's not true".

Don't get me wrong here... I know there are many wonderful doctors :) My doctors are in the wonderful category compared to some of the stories I have heard.

      Update: I am about at my wit's end. I won't be able to see my new doctor until July 17 to get a referral to a GI doctor, so I continue to eat gluten and the effects continue to worsen. Today my boss, whom I have been working with for 12 years, and I had a meeting where he said he's noticed a change in many things, such as speech, not articulating well, forgetfulness, and other things that are affecting my work product. I finally told him I know there is something wrong with me medically and I've been trying to get to the doctor to no avail. I recall those four weeks early in the year when I tried out gluten free and was beginning to feel much better- more present, more sharp, and then went back on gluten in preparation for the blood test.  I just don't think I can do this gluten thing any longer and am thinking of going cold-turkey gluten free.  I'm 54 years old, am beginning not to care about a diagnosis because I just want to feel better and be able to do what I need to do. Because of how I felt going off of gluten earlier in the year, and eating gluten free when I was on the McDougall plan years ago, and how I feel while doing this gluten challenge, I am pretty convinced that my issue is gluten.  Any words of encouragement would be welcome.  If you've done gluten free and never looked back, tell me about it.

      "I got this vaccination in 2009 when I was 20 and it completely altered my life. Made my celiac disease so much worse, sleep 15-18 hours a day, SIBO, it has completely altered my life since getting this vaccination. My doctor has two twin girls about my age and they both have digestion problems after receiving gardasil Thank you I have a young daughter and have wondered this exact question posed by the poster and your response has given me great pause about this issue which may come up in years to come. I am sorry to hear this wreak havoc on your life, but simultaneously thank you for sharing this detail to help those of us that have likely been decades misdiagnosed celiacs now raising children. Thank you.
    • Gluten does WHAT to the brain?
      "Wondering what kind of life my brother could have had - if  he had celiac - constantly haunts me" My sympathies that is just tragic, as this story is.  I hope you are at peace knowing you are aware of your celiac and help so many lost, scared, and confused celiacs here. It can never bring back your brother but I hope it can give soften some of what you feel that was/is beyond your control. His suffering and your loss has made you a better advocate to yourself and in your work helping us. I don't like my body or my  brain on gluten either. I do fear that people overlook the toll inflammation takes on the brain. It likely may explain decades of mental illness that was brain based inflammation unknown until changes in technology advancement catch up. However consuming gluten to study how one enters psychosis may not be the best method. Do no harm.

    • Gardasil And Celiac
      I have this same issue! I got gardasil in 2009 and have never been the same since. Celiac disease, thyroid problems. I used to be healthy and active and since I got that shot I have never been the same.

      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.
      https://youtu.be/IU6jVEwpjnE Thank You,
