Anybody Here Feel Worse On This Diet?
Posted 17 March 2004 - 12:01 PM
I am just hoping this goes away after awhile--for me it has been a year and three months and yet I know other Celiacs who have been on this diet for over four years and they do not seem to have this problem. I have never been a big eater so this is very trying to have to have food with me all of the time.
Also, I might add that on endoscopy it did not show that I had reflux or an ulcer but the doctor put me on the medication anyway to see if it would help.

We don't have anything like this message board in England (that I know of), it's an excellent idea!
I not only get the nausea but everytime I eat even a small meal I get a really strong thumping heartbeat that lasts for about an hour. Anyone else get this?

I have had 2 follow-up endoscopies which confirm I'm a Coeliac, although the consultant thought my gut should have recovered more than it has.
So I have no choice but to stay gluten-free, although I suspect if I came off the diet I wouldn't feel any the worse for it! I tried going dairy free but that didn't make any difference either.
We'll just have to live with it I suppose!

I've asked myself that same question a hundred times: Is there something else wrong with me? I've been gluten-free for 7 months with few mistakes, and even did a 4 month stint being dairy free, and still no change. I've noticed the small improvements I've already mentioed, like the weight gain and more energy. But the symptoms I've gotten in return for being gluten-free are almost as bad as the ones I had before my diagnosis. It hardly seems worth it to follow this diet, but I'm hanging in there only because I wouldn't want to risk my life and develop lymphoma or something and then have only myself to blame. I'm having a colonoscopy soon which will tell me more. If you still feel bad after a couple months on the diet, you probably need to have more testing done, or at least see what your doctor suggests. I wouldn't worry about still not feeling great only a week or two into the diet, though. It's possible that you aren't totally gluten-free yet, this is new and you might have made a few mistakes, or your body's still adjusting.

I also have a pounding heart after eating, I thought I was going nuts! There are times during the day I get dizzy on the right side of my head and at that time I also experience headaches. I do feel somewhat better after eating when this happens. I know I sound like I'm complaining, but does anyone else get a nagging pulling pain under the right shoulder which goes up into the neck and head? There are times when I don't have the symtoms, then out of the air, my shoulder, neck, and head pain comes back. I know its from Celiacs, but I can't figure out why its happening. Any suggestions?? Thanks, Tye-Kon
