hello, I found this site looking for gluten problems. the doctor said I need to follow a gluten free diet.

I am new to all this gluten free diet stuff

for the past couple of years I have had severe gagging attacks, burning sensation on the left side of my upper stomach, and a rash on my feet the doctor said my vitamin D levels low. and that my liver is slightly swollen. after many many test he put me on a gluten free diet and the foot rash is clearing up and the gagging attacks have stoped, it's like I'm a whole new person. the doctor said he has never seen celiac and gluten symptoms of gagging.

has anyone else suffered these symptoms with the gluten, the gluten free diet is a whole new life style.

Thanks.

I am so happy that you are finding some relief. I don't share your symptoms,but have my own share of weird things happen because of gluten. I get a rash on my neck. It doesn't hurt or itch it just kinda looks like someone tried to hang me and it didn't work.
Best of luck!

Along with Celiac, many of us were diagnosed with Gastritis, Reflux caused by or because of a Hiatus Hernia. It's common. Both, as well as other ailments can attribute to some gagging.

I expect that too will fade away. :)

And oh! I forgot my manners..........WELCOME!

Hi minidobie. Yes, for a while there I went through a spell of retching, gagging, esophogeal spasm, couldn't swallow tablets - thought it would never end, but it did :)

Gagging was one of my biggies. The reflux and anxiety that came with gluten just made the gagging worse and worse ... it was like a vicious cycle for me. Ugh. Bad memories.
