Shaky, Nausea, Feel Weird After Eating.....help?
0

5 posts in this topic

Well it has now been 4 1/2 months of gluten free-ness, and still little improvement. I am concerned with these peculair symptoms that I continue to have. Started with new GI doc, and I like him, seems to listen, but still have so many odd ball symptoms. Hoping you guys can help.

I notice about 2-3 minutes after eating, and it can be as simple as a banana, eggs, apple, anything for that matter, that I have episodes that begin with feeling nauseous, out of my head-foggy, and shakiness, and seem to have a tremoring feeling. This lasts sometimes for about 45 minutes to an hour, and I just feel aweful, then I return to my usual chronic achiness in the upper belly with nausea and back pain. I have checked my blood sugar and it is normal during this time frame as well as my blood pressure, also normal. Seems like after one of these episodes, I then get very drowsy, lasting for 2-3 hours or so, and feel like I need a nap???

any thoughts, or anyone else have similar things going on??

I think I may have told you this already, but I had the same thing going on for many months after going gluten-free. It took a while for my system to calm down.

I found that I NEEDED PROTEIN with any carb I ate--fruit or starchy---to stop that nausea, jittery feeling, spaciness and afternoon fatigue.

I also needed B-12, Folate, D supplementation.

Eventually, all that stopped --unless I get CCed by accident.

I may have asked you this on another post you made, and I know you are still struggling post- cholecystectomy, but are all your vitamin/minerals levels up to par??

A deficiency in any one of those can wreak havoc on the body, even causing the symptoms you describe. Post surgery and a new celiac DX?--you may be deficient in a few of them.

Maybe you should ask your doctor to check them for you?

What did the GI doctor say--did he check you for other possible GI tract issues yet? You are having quite a struggle, I know. Sorry.

IrishHeart - as ususal - is right on target. I had these symptoms for years even pre-diagnosis. I could never eat just an apple it has to be an apple plus peanut butter or cheese or an egg.

In addition to what she said, a sublingual multi B is my choice because I know it will get absorbed. Plus I have to have a Magnesium supplement daily or I feel "off".

So, yes more protein. D, B and Magnesium supplements. Best of luck to you.

Everyone seems to be different with what they can tolerate and not tolerate. I had my gallbladder removed about 5ish years ago. I cannot tolerate fat at all until several weeks after gluten-free. If I slip, then it is back to the drawing board. Even a single egg would lead me to run to the restroom, plus lots of bloating, sometimes nausea.

We all seem to be broken down in slightly different ways and each seems to have their own weird issues. It would be interesting if it was not so devastating.

    • Ok, I can't seem to find my first lot of blood tests that were done for Celiac screening, they did include TTG I remember that much, and I am getting another copy of it but another test did come in today.  I don't know how different tests are done around the world and I don't get all the medical jargon but this is what it states, ******************************************************************************* HLA DR/DQ Genotyping for Coeliac Disease, Specimen type : EDTA blood Method : Detection of sequence-specific oligonucleotides (Gen-Probe). HLA-DR - 1, 13          DRB1 - 01, 13 HLA-DQ - 5,6        HLA-DQA1 - 5,6      HLA-DB1 - 05, 06 Interpretation : No genotype susceptibility for coeliac disease.  The DQ2 and DQ8 antigens associated with increased risk of coeliac disease were not identified in this patient.  In the absence of these antigens, coeliac disease is extremely unlikely.   *******************************************************************************   I have read the horror stories of blood tests and scope biopsies not be done right or flawed but here is what I do know as of now, At the moment the most non invasive test I can have done say negative.  I have double scopes (endoscopy and colonoscopy) booked for the 12th of October with results from biopsies expected a week or two after. Chances are they will show, a) signs of coeliac disease (even if the odds are low it can still happen), b) show signs of something else entirely and we will be busy dealing with the ramifications of that or c) it will show no signs of coeliac but I will still be suffering from gluten sensitivity (which is harder/impossible to measure clinically). My GP has told me that stress and anxiety can be a cause of all the symptoms I have been experiencing and suggests if the scopes show nothing that I may benefit from something to treat anxiety, i.e. antidepressants.  Not in a, "Oh we don't know what it is so have these," kind of way, he agrees with the thought that the scopes could indeed show coeliac, something else or even be negative. I did tell him that I could have a sensitivity and that even without benefit of clinical results, some people have gone on a gluten elimination diet for a period of time to see if they get any relief.  My question is this, if the scopes come up negative and I try eliminating gluten, how long would it be before I saw any results or improvements?  I have read enough here and elsewhere to know that everybody is different, some see results within days, some see results longer but are there any guidelines for how long a test like this should be undertaken for?  I have heard everything thing from two weeks to two months.  All of this is entirely moot at this point but I know that even if the results said clear, there would always be a little part of me that wonders if it could be a sensitivity that is the problem.  Any thoughts or advice greatly appreciated, and a thank you to all those who have taken the time to respond and offer advice and encouragement so far.

    • Thanks I never heard of that dye before, I guess I have to find more natural meat thanks for the suggestion. 
    • Yes, I only eat one meal a day. Sometimes salad or fries or whatever I can find. And thanks for the replies again.
    • A colonoscopy is not used to diagnose celiac disease.  An endoscopy is used to obtain biopsies in the small intestine.
