8 posts in this topic

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.

    • Marip, Have you been diagnosed with celiac disease or Non-celiac Gluten Intolerance?  I notice you joined in 2014.  Did you ever go guten free?  How can we help?   Sorry, I'm not a stool expert!  You could Google it...  Malabsorption?  Standard lab tests that check for anemia and vitamin deficiencies, etc.  should help make that diagnosis.  
    • You can eat just a slice or two (or equivalent) of bread a day for accurate testing.   I understand about the high deductibles.  We're self-employed and we pay for our health insurance. 
    • Sure, if it's gluten free, then fine.  I am very allergic (like anaphylactic) to ibuprofen and aspirin.  So, in my case, I would just tough it out.  Go to bed.  Sleep it off.....eventually. My money is on the garlic and onions.  I can't consume those either (damn that zonulin/leaky gut -- google it along with Dr. Fasano).  I just season with salt, pepper.  Boring.  But no gut issues.  I'm hoping like my lactose intolerance (resolved), that I will get garlic and onions back.   Finally, sometimes just eating anything can hurt when you still have intestinal damage.  Hopefully, you'll feel better in two or three hours if it's celiac related.  Longer if it's an intolerance (leaky gut thing....) Hugs!      
    • I read on their website that all Advil is gluten free, I had such bad pinching cramping today(which I don't why since I prepared all my food at home today.) I made a pot roast, salt garlic, onions...No gluten but still pain, That's the only thing I ate today..I don't eat breakfast or anything.   Anyways.   Is it a good idea to take Advil for the cramping? That's how I would describe it like someone is reaching inside me and pinching me and twisting my insides.    This is what I took  
    • I'll give my PCP a call tomorrow and see what they can offer. My only worry is the expense as anymore tests will put me behind in being able to afford to see the GI. I have high deductible insurance but get money put into my HSA. I'm still trying to pay off the CT scan though. Which is why I'm trying to pick and choose which poses the greatest risk for me right now and what can wait. (Though I would prefer not to wait on any of it.)

      I really do hope its only IBS. Though I always worry IBS is more or less a doctors way of saying "I have no clue" at that point. :C

      Again, I'll be sure to give my PCP a call tomorrow then and see what the options are. I can feel a lot better trying the blood work first. however, once that is done, do I still need to be on a gluten diet before the endoscopy? Also, is it ok if I still mildly reduce the gluten. As in, can I avoid a whole wheat pasta dinner, but still be eating the peanut butter crackers? That sort of thing. Again I guess that is more of a doctor related question. I just wasn't sure if in order to raise your chance, you have to mass consume gluten or not. (Its already in just about everything to begin with.)   --Edit--
      I just now reread the part that you still need to be on the gluten foods even for biopsy so I'll be sure to do that too.
