Brain Fog
0

10 posts in this topic

Any help would be great!

Ive eliminated gluten,soy, eggs, citric acid, all grains, white potatoes , chicken , pork and beef, and all fish!

I have horrible habbit of not chewing my food and eating extremly fast which i have been working on and learning slowly to take my time when i eat.

I eat all veg and rare meats and try to not eat things with sugar in them!

However, my brain fog is still with me 24/7 in the past 6 months ive had one day of clarity!

the only supplement i take is L -Glutamine to help my leaky gut repair!

could anyone advise me on the next step i should take to remove this brain fog!

Thank you

Vitamins ..the B vitamins especially, but also calcium,D,C,E,K, iron, magnesium and zinc.

Brain fog can be nutritional deficiency related.

Just curious...What meat do you eat if you avoid all beef, pork, chicken and fish?

Is it wild game?

Dairy (casein) affects me just as badly as gluten and soy. My symptoms were mostly neuro, and the brain fog that I had for years lifted entirely after a few weeks free of those things.

Have you looked into fructose malabsorption? It can cause brain fog and does for me if I eat too much of it.

Is the brain fog a lifelong problem? I have ADD and going gluten-free did alleviate a bit of brain fog, getting me back to my usual level of mental disorganization. There's no cure for ADD although it is highly treatable.

Have you had your thyroid tested? Before I found out I had Hashimoto's, my brain fog was debilitating.

I really sympathize. Have you tried a full complement of amino acids? I'm trying to figure out the celiac connection - I think it has something to do with protein absorption. regardless I've seen a big improvement in energy and mental clarity. Otherwise, if it is celiac caused, it may be that not enough time has passed. I've been off gluten for a year and am still seeing big steps in health improvements.

I don't post much up on here because I've dealt with Celiac's for 7 years now.

I see people post about every single thing that I went through and now have for the most part solved.

I would seriously look at Candida in the sinuses for brain fog. I used to suffer from it and no matter what I did to my diet it still stuck around. Killing anything in the sinuses is a real pain.

You can do the Candida diet, take all the meds(I was on Nystatin for 4 months) but none of it will kill it in the sinuses.

This is what I have done and have had amazing luck with it. I've had the massive anxiety, panic attacks, memory fogginess, lack of concentration, etc...if I eat wrong or overdue it, usually on sugar I can bring on the worlds worst attack.

They used to last weeks, starting with panic attacks, anxiety, then that constant headache, lack of concentration, and finally relieving itself after a month or so.

I use a Neti pot now with Grapefruit Seed Extract. GSE kills just about anything on contact. In the course of 2 days I wipe out what growth is there and return myself to normal.

I put in 3-4 drops of GSE in a Neti Pot, actually I use a Sinease from Waterpik, basically an electric neti pot, plus the saline solution in 8oz of water. Mix VERY well and make sure the water is luke warm. I invert my head and make sure I get some to flow as much as possible into the frontal sinuses then wash through the rest.

It will burn the first few times and if I have a Candida infection I can tell instantly because it smells like burning wood, after the 3-4 treatment the burning wood smell is gone.

I do it twice a day morning and night.

YMMV but it has worked great for me. I'd love to get others feedback because after dealing with Candida for so long as going gluten-free this was my last piece of the puzzle. I think a lot of people here post about issues relating to Celiac's but in reality its a Candida overgrowth because the symptoms are so similar.

Good luck and if you decide to try it I'd love to hear the results.

I second what other people have been saying - it's probably due to a nutritional deficiency.

I have been more diligent about taking my vitamins, along with glutamine. Make sure you're taking:

A good multi-vitamin

B-complex

Sublingual B12

Iron

Additional D3

My Iron was actually a little low and I think that's actually been making a pretty difference.

    • Thankyou both! I was wondering if my high levels left much doubt on the diagnosis. I don't see the GI until the 15th Sep and I don't think I can stand to eat gluten in that time. If he tells me to I will do so after then. After 25 years of symptoms I don't think there is much chance of healing my bowel In a couple of weeks. I'm actually terrified of the damage they might find. But I think I will need the endo since there may be other things going on with me. So great they didn't put your son through the biopsy! Once I have a formal diagnosis I have my kids to worry about also. I can't even stand the thought of my daughter having a blood test. I think she would need to be sedated as she is so fearful and pain sensitive. My son is not yet 2 so I don't think they will test him. I'm feeling so off at the moment. I think I have some anxiety and reflux going on complicating things quite a bit.
    • My son's antibodies were 300. Based on his extremely high levels, his pediatric GI suggested genetic testing instead of the biopsy. Genetic testing can't diagnose celiac on its own but combined with such high levels, the gi dr was confident a positive genetic test would confidently diagnose celiac. He warned that biopsies are small snapshots of the intestine and can miss damage. He said this is an approach used very often in Europe but not as much in the US. What sold me on that approach was the ability to put my son directly on a gluten free diet instead of waiting three weeks for the biopsy, during which time he would continue to eat gluten and feel terrible. I'm not sure if this is more common with younger patients though (our son is two), based on the idea that he's had less time to inflict damage that would show in a biopsy? We are very happy that we immediately started the gluten free diet and chose the genetic testing. Our son got the proper diagnosis and his recent number shows a drop to 71 after only 4.5 months gluten free! Not sure if this helps. Good luck and I hope you feel better soon!
    • We have been off gluten for a while now, and symptoms return when I've allowed gluten full meals… so something still isn't sitting right with me.  Checking with her doc about seeing a pediactric GI although I'm not sure how long that will take since we live in small town America. I know she didn't get at least one of the recommended full panel tests but maybe two, can someone help clarify, or is she missing two? DGP for sure and possibly EMA? And if I understand what I'm reading in other posts that the DGP can be more accurate? Thanks Her blood panel results: Ttg ab iga <.5u/ml ttg igg <.8u/ml aga ab iga <.2 u/ml aga an igg <.7u/ml iga 61mg/dL  
    • I was tested for the full panel, I believe. I had normal values for t-transglutaminase (ttg) igg,t-transglutaminase (ttg) iga, deamidated gliadin abs igg, deamidated gliadin abs iga, and immunoglobulin a qn serum.  
    • Would you review this on Find Me Gluten free?  You can  use the app or just go to it on line. If the restaurant isn't listed, there is a way to suggest it.  I have done that and it works.  Many of us look at that site/ app
