Body Lotion Hell

7 posts in this topic

I think i got glutened by my body lotion, no i didnt check anything like that until i had a random gluten type reaction to something even though I am so careful. I realised it was my body lotion. This was three days ago and after being super careful i am still irritable, feeling faint before i need to go to the bathroom, the day after using my body lotion i had the big D and felt awful. I am still having weird BM's, its almost like constipation but coming out fast with more mucus... is this normal for after being glutened? I'm just wondering how other people are after being poisoned! Sorry about all the info...! You are the only people i can turn too!

I'm so sorry you're feeling so horrible. I think all of your symptoms are possible after being glutened, especially if you are in early diagnosis. There is never anything to be sorry about. We are here for you!!! Please feel free to PM me if you need to vent one-on-one.

There's a great online company called Body Sense that has gluten free products. I use their shampoo, conditioner and hairspray. The body wash doesn't get soapy enough so I just use ivory soap bars in the shower. I need to get lotion because I am definitely flakier than usual (pun intended). Just make sure you go to the gluten free page.

Sending positive energy and healing thoughts,

Loey

Here's a link to the gluten-free page:

You know what works really great and is pretty inexpensive? I use baby oil right after I get out of the shower and while I am still wet. You don't need to use a lot, and it lasts all day. My skin is super soft. The only lotion I need to use is hand lotion because I wash my hands a lot during the day and they get super dry.

Thnaks guys. I live in England and there is a shop called Body Shop and most of their stuff is gluten free which is reassuring, but buying everything again in one bulk is a little daunting on the money side of things of course! I used Botanics Body Lotion, with the name you'd presume it would be okay but good old wheat protein makes an appearance... And my hand cream and most my make up and my shampoo... Sigh! I am in the early diagnosis, only been gluten free for 4-5 months now... thank you for all your loving support, its nice to 'speak' to people who actually understand!

It is quite daunting to have to replenish everything. Just try to buy a little something every week and always read labels. I'm unemployed and was just rejected for disability (seeing a lawyer tomorrow - fingers crossed) so it's really hard or me to buy large amounts of products. Especially when the gluten-free food is so expensive.

Good luck!

Yeah I have to reapply for disability too... They aren't very understanding of our disease i must say. Especially in the early stages of diagnosis. I'm lucky to have such a supportive mother, she brought me a bulk of things that cost about

    • Anxiety is quite a common symptom with undiagnosed celiacs. It should improve if not disappear when you go gluten free. Be sure to CONTINUE eating gluten until the endoscopy!   Welcome to the club!
    • Although serological tests are useful for identifying celiac disease, it is well known that a small minority of celiacs are seronegative, and show no blood markers for celiac disease. A team of researchers wanted to define the prevalence and features of seronegative compared to seropositive celiac disease, and to establish whether celiac disease is a common cause of seronegative villous atrophy.

    • This was absolutely me before diagnosis.  The worst of all of my Celiac symptoms occurred in the morning.  The anxiety was terrible in the mornings, I had horrible nausea, no appetite, felt light headed, dizzy and shaky, diarrhea, stomach cramps... the works.  Honestly, I don't know if it was the symptoms causing the anxiety, the anxiety making my symptoms worse, or a combination.  I almost dropped out of school because I felt so terrible every morning I didn't want to leave the house to go to class.  The first few doctors I saw insisted all of my symptoms were psychological and tried to give me anti-depressants/anti-anxiety meds, but I knew there was something else wrong with me.  I had always been a bit "high-strung," but for the year I was really sick before diagnosis, the anxiety got out of control. I was diagnosed with celiac disease 6 months ago and have been gluten free ever since.  It took time, but everything is gradually improving.  The morning anxiety is much improved and some mornings, is completely gone.  I realized a month or two ago that I no longer spend the first hour after waking up gagging and dry-heaving, something I had done for so many years that I just thought it was normal for me.  I can brush my teeth and my tongue without feeling like I'm going to puke.  I eat breakfast now, which I have never done, because I was always too anxious and nauseous in the mornings to be hungry.  I am not "all better."  I still have bad days and even bad weeks.  If I get glutened the anxiety comes back full force.  If I'm super-stressed out or letting my health slide (not eating well, not sleeping enough) the AM anxiety seems to return.  But, it has been slowly improving over the last 6 months and has become so much more manageable.   Your anxiety could be a separate disorder from the celiac disease, but for me, it seems it was absolutely related and continues to get better.  Don't get discouraged if you don't see an immediate improvement or experience relapses after improving.  Often, I feel like it's a two-step-forward, one-step-back kind of thing, but it is getting better.
    • I have suffered with GERD for 20 years and accidently found out it was a gluten intolerance. I had gone on Atkins years ago and noticed that I had no GERD symptoms while on the diet. I didn't make the connection at that time. Then I went on the Mayo Diet back in the winter and once again, the constant was having no bread primarily. I had also noticed that I would have major attacks anytime I ate Italian food. I blamed it on the onions, the tomatoes, herbs...but I could tolerate all those foods separately. Then, like a lightning bolt...it hit me...the culprit was the "innocent" pasta. BINGO!!  I went gluten-free in March 2016 and I have had no GERD now in 5 months. I feel as if it is a gift to me.   
    • Hey everyone!! Dealt with morning anxiety, complete lack of appetite in the AM/diarrhea if I tried to eat, fatigue, etc. for about two months. Saw doctor and they first prescribed me antidepressants while they ran bloodwork. Got bloodwork yesterday, positive result for celiac, going to get the endoscopy/biopsy soon. Anyone else have morning anxiety like CRAZY before cutting out gluten? Afraid to leave the house because of feeling faint, dizzy, etc., like I'm going to pass out. I haven't actually passed out, but the feelings are all there. It's hard to overcome the anxiety some time!   Hoping someone else has had similar symptoms and that I can look forward to this being over soon!! Thanks everyone xoxo
