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.

    • What's an " iodine test"?  Haven't heard doctors doing that to diagnose DH.
    • Hello! I've just been given my blood results and told they are highly suggestive of coeliacs but will have to wait till next month to see the gastroenterologist and who knows how much longer for a biopsy. My igA, igG and tissuetrans igA were all over 250 and tissuetrans igG was the only one that was normal. These results don't mean much to me yet but I'm told they are very high. I'm now quite fearful of how much damage I've gone to myself. I've had stomach problems for 25 years (just turned 40) and have often steered clear of too much bread and pasta for how bloated it made me feel but the symptoms were always vague and inconsistent so I kept eating. I had a couple of boats of gastro in the past few months (thanks kids) which I took a lot longer than normal to recover from which looking back may have been related. Then last Friday I had a blowout with wine, cheese, crackers, pizza and chocolate cake. I'm sure I've probably had blowouts like that before but I have never felt so sick before and am still slowly recovering. This is what finally prompted me to go back to my GP after being fobbed off so many times over the years. So I guess my question and my concern is whether there is still  chance of a false positive with levels like this? I worry what else it might be if not coeliac. I'm also worried that I may have done so much damage to myself that I will have several disorders going on! I'm also still recovering from last Friday and wondering when I'm going to feel better. I've stayed off gluten and dairy since my blood result a couple of days ago but feel like I'm allergic to food in general.  Thankyou!!    
    • Here's what the Klondike Bar makers say on the FAQ page of their website (August 2016): Are your products gluten free? Nope. They are not. We have not validated for gluten free. We do not operate allergen-free manufacturing sites, however we do have allergen management programs in all our facilities. The intent of these programs is to avoid unintentional cross-contamination of allergens between products. Our product labels adhere to the FDA’s strict regulations regarding declaration of ingredients and allergens. We do not use the terms “Natural” or “Artificial Flavorings” to hide the existence of any allergens. RECIPES CAN CHANGE. We strongly recommend that allergic consumers refer to ingredient declarations EVERY TIME they purchase processed foods.
    • I tried the iodine test but couldn't leave it on very long because it itched too much. I left it on maybe 30 minutes lol. Did anyone try it and have the same response??
    • Had my scope today. Dr said my esophagus is damaged and stomach inflamed. Waiting on biopsy results. Taking protonic and flagyl and he said to go ahead and try cutting gluten out to see if that helps. Thanks for the feedback everyone!
