How Long Does It Take You To Wake Up In The Mornings?
0

9 posts in this topic

I always have to give myself several extra hours before I start work or have breakfast. If I eat right after I wake up, this ends up blocking up my system, causing a bloated stomach and extreme discomfort throughout the rest of the day.

Anybody else have this problem?

Also--although I love to have a snack late at night--I have to avoid this. Interestingly enough, just a small piece of rice cake can mess me up for the next day.

Unlike my family, my weight can swing wildly in one day, sometimes up to ten pounds' difference throughout the day. I always thought that was just a personal quirk but has anyone else with Celiac/sensitivities experienced this?

Hi again,

It really sounds like you are dealing with extra food sensitivities/allergies. I have had the same or should I say, a similar problem. Right now am again fluctuating, but no longer 10 pounds as I did in my twenties and thirties. Am trying out some homeopathics to see if they help. If they end up not working, I intend to get Phenol Assist or some similar supplement. Either that, or I will have to reduce my dietary spectrum even further...

For you Digestive enzymes might help too, especially to get things get your digestion going in the morning.

I find if I exercise a bit in the morning after getting up (like push ups and sit ups) it helps build digestive fire too, as well as helps to get my blood moving so I am not so sleepy/dizzy. Exercise in general helps the digestion as well as many other systems in the body.

I am finding I may be sensitive to phenols as well as gluten and salicylates. Which means there is a lot I am sensitive to.

I am also starting to investigate Donna Eden's ENERGY MEDICINE books and cds. She suggests energy muscle testing foods to see if they give you energy or reduce it. Might be something worthwhile for you to look into too?? Its sort of an East/West approach to the meridians that can help you become a lot healthier.

I need at least an hour before i'm... socible. My family knows not to push my buttons before that hour lol. I can't eat right off the bat either or else it tries to come back up on me.

It takes me at least several cups of coffee and 3 cigarettes before my brain comes anywhere close to landing back on earth in the morning! I also can't eat when I first wake up as my stomach is one of the last things to wake up. My bowel however seems to be an early riser so morning constipation is rarely an issue for me lol. Actually any kind of constipation is rare for me full stop!

I had no idea the human body could create so much...

I also have this problem - It takes me at least an hour to get myself going and before I can even think about eating breakfast.. even then, eating breakfast seems to be a bit of struggle.  But once I get going, I start feeling good enough to start my day.. it is more of a gradual thing.. but this is my daily routine anymore.

Slow to start the day can be from low cortisol levels.  I have that problem.  I get up early but am slow to start and need a couple of hours before I am ready to go for the day. But once that happens, I am good to go.  I was tested and my morning cortisol is low and that's the get up and go chemical.  However, I catch up well and my levels are great the rest of the day.  I have to wait a half hour before eating because I take thyroid hormone for Hashi's and you have to take it on an empty stomach.  I have never been a morning person and need a while to get my butt in gear.  I am also slow to wake up.....all because of the cortisol thing.

I am a total night owl.

I found I gained 9lbs and 9 inches overnight once after eating pizza.  I have a problem with cheese and wheat as I found out several times later.  Low cortisol can also make one retain fluid according to my functional medicine nurse.

 

My weight has tended to swing by 10 lbs or so over days and weeks.  I lost 30 lbs once in a week.  I took a supplement that helped rid me of my water weight.  I went from an extra large dress to a small in a week.

 

I am still waiting to see if such a thing happens when I am taking herbs for adrenal support.

 

I find I can wake up in 30-45 minutes.  A light one can turn on from the bed seems to help a great deal.  If I prop myself up against the wall in a sitting position, I tend to wake up faster.

It takes about an hour and a half and 4 cell phone alarms to get me up in the morning (my fiance isn't too happy with that either haha).  I need to wait about 20 minutes after waking up before I get in the shower so that I don't trigger a syncope episode (I'm assuming I have to wait until my blood pressure rises enough before getting in the shower or else I pass out).  That 20 minutes also allows my bowels to start working so that I'm not bloated all day...

    • You are right, the tests could be invalid.   All the celiac tests require you to be on a gluten-containing diet.  It is up to you to decide if you want to go gluten free.  You can do it.  Believe me, I know.  Hubby is not officially diagnosed.  He went gluten-free 15 years ago, based on the rather poor advice from my allergist and his GP.  It worked though.  But he would be the first to tell you that I have had way more support in terms of family and medical.    We think he has it.  Both of our families are riddled with autoimmine disorders.  I am the first to be diagnosed.   My Aunt went gluten free per the advice of her Chiropractor.  Her other doctors never suspected celiac disease.  The diet obviously worked for her.  Her daughter (my cousin) is a nurse.  She had an endoscopy but they did not check for celiac disease.  She chose to go gluten-free too since it worked for her mom.  Both will not do a gluten challenge.  However, my diagnosis has helped them get proper medical treatment.  My Aunt is very active in a celiac support group.    Now everyone in my family knows about celiac disease.  My own niece was just diagnosed with Crohn's, but her GI did test and will continue to test her for celiac disease.  You can develop additional autoimmune disorders at any time.   So far, a few other members have been tested.  No one else had had a celiac disease diagnosis yet.  Time will tell.  If I can save someone from the misery of struggling to get a diagnosis, then I can feel good.   Now, an official diagnosis will help you adhere to the diet .  You can get follow-up care.  Get checked for other things like SIBO, H. Pylori and cancer.  But ultimately, it is up to you.   Whatever you decided to do, please consider a family health history chart.  You might someday help a grandchild.   The stool tests?  In all my research, leading celiac experts do not recommend them.  http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/why-dont-you-recognize-tests-stool-tests-or-otherwise-for-gluten-sensitivity-that-are-currently-available-through-companies-like-enterolab-or-cyrex/  
    • The procedure is a breeze. You will go in, be sedated and go to sleep for a short nap and then it's over. Some people will have a bit of a sore throat but not everyone does. For me the hardest part of the endo was not being able to drink coffee when I got up. You seem to have been back on gluten for long enough to have the test but as CLady said there is a good chance your blood work may be negative. In your case you may want to continue eating gluten after the biopsy at least until you get your blood results. If they are negative consider going a bit longer and getting them redone.
    • I think the gene tests are accurate.  Not sure if thier interpretation of them is.   If you actually think have Celiac, you need to know that.  You  need to know how careful you must be.  You need a diagnosis to get gluten-free food in hospitals or nursing homes (if you can find one that does gluten-free food).  Because thsese "stool tests" are not medically accepted, it is unlikely that a real medical facility will consider you to have Celiac.   http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/why-dont-you-recognize-tests-stool-tests-or-otherwise-for-gluten-sensitivity-that-are-currently-available-through-companies-like-enterolab-or-cyrex/
    • Why would your doctor order an endoscopy and check for celiac disease, but not order a celiac panel?  Had you been gluten free already?  
    • Thanks cyclinglady ... just wondering, do most of the people on this forum believe the Enterolab stool / gene testing to be non-trustworthy? Or are you just recommending a diagnosis from my MD so that she is also treating me with full belief/knowledge of my condition? I've been gluten free now for 2 weeks - by the time I get in to my doctor, she orders the bloodwork and I get to a lab it could be another 2 weeks before the bloodwork is done. From what I understand, just a month of gluten free eating could skew the results of the blood test. Supposedly, the stool tests are much more accurate. I hate to go backwards and start eating gluten again just so I can have a blood test done that may or may not substantiate the results of the stool / gene testing. I'm so confused ...
