Problems After Eating?
0

4 posts in this topic

after eating I get intense headaches in the front of my head like in my eyes, a lot like a sinus headache. I have noticed that now whenever I eat enjoy life products (this never used to happen but as of the past few weeks now does) I get the intense headache and indigestion. I know it is not a gluten thing and know the company is safe, but I get it EVERY single time I eat any of their cookies, and now tonight for lunch I had udi's pizza crust with valley fresh chicken breast in water and plain lettuce with that, and I have the headache again. What's going on? :( I am also dizzy, it's very strange and I can't ignore it anymore. Any insight? :(

Does this happen every time you eat, or only when you eat those two products? If it is just those products it may be another ingredient (non gluten) that is bothering you. You should look and see if there is anything that is in both of them. Good luck figuring this out.

I lived with that pain, until I went gluten free. I didn't know how good it felt to be without it! Right there in your forehead! I know the spot!

With me, my first sign of UT OH is a gurgling tummy. Then the pain in the forehead, and then a mass of symptoms in the next few hours.

I found they were not just signs of gluten, but now I have had to eliminate all corn, and those who have done it know, its harder to get it out of your diet than gluten is!

I had a reaction yesterday to a protein drink I have used for over a month with no problem. Hadn't had it for a week, and now a reaction! ugh!

So now I have to wonder if it was soy or the artificial sweeteners that got me.

The best you can do is keep a diary of everything you eat and monitor and log how you feel several times a day. That way you can backtrack and review ingredients and find your common denominator.

Just because you ate it last month or even last week without a problem, doesn't mean you can today. From what I have learned here.... as the body adjusts to not having gluten, it realizes there are other things it really didn't like you eating, and it isn't bashful to tell you OK, YOU STOPPED GLUTEN, NOW STOP THIS TOO!

It can be a drag, I know! But when our body talks, or in my case screams.... we really should listen. Its guiding us to our health better than any doctor could!

Good luck to you!!!!

    • This is EXACTLY what happens to me. It has twice now and both times was after both glutening episodes but once it was the day after and the other time it was a week and a half. So I'm still not sure if it's related or strange bug bites...

      Did they stop happening when she stopped being glutened? Did you decide they were definitely related? I'm really confused by this and would love to know whether to insecticide my house or....
    • Thankyou both! I was wondering if my high levels left much doubt on the diagnosis. I don't see the GI until the 15th Sep and I don't think I can stand to eat gluten in that time. If he tells me to I will do so after then. After 25 years of symptoms I don't think there is much chance of healing my bowel In a couple of weeks. I'm actually terrified of the damage they might find. But I think I will need the endo since there may be other things going on with me. So great they didn't put your son through the biopsy! Once I have a formal diagnosis I have my kids to worry about also. I can't even stand the thought of my daughter having a blood test. I think she would need to be sedated as she is so fearful and pain sensitive. My son is not yet 2 so I don't think they will test him. I'm feeling so off at the moment. I think I have some anxiety and reflux going on complicating things quite a bit.
    • My son's antibodies were 300. Based on his extremely high levels, his pediatric GI suggested genetic testing instead of the biopsy. Genetic testing can't diagnose celiac on its own but combined with such high levels, the gi dr was confident a positive genetic test would confidently diagnose celiac. He warned that biopsies are small snapshots of the intestine and can miss damage. He said this is an approach used very often in Europe but not as much in the US. What sold me on that approach was the ability to put my son directly on a gluten free diet instead of waiting three weeks for the biopsy, during which time he would continue to eat gluten and feel terrible. I'm not sure if this is more common with younger patients though (our son is two), based on the idea that he's had less time to inflict damage that would show in a biopsy? We are very happy that we immediately started the gluten free diet and chose the genetic testing. Our son got the proper diagnosis and his recent number shows a drop to 71 after only 4.5 months gluten free! Not sure if this helps. Good luck and I hope you feel better soon!
    • We have been off gluten for a while now, and symptoms return when I've allowed gluten full meals… so something still isn't sitting right with me.  Checking with her doc about seeing a pediactric GI although I'm not sure how long that will take since we live in small town America. I know she didn't get at least one of the recommended full panel tests but maybe two, can someone help clarify, or is she missing two? DGP for sure and possibly EMA? And if I understand what I'm reading in other posts that the DGP can be more accurate? Thanks Her blood panel results: Ttg ab iga <.5u/ml ttg igg <.8u/ml aga ab iga <.2 u/ml aga an igg <.7u/ml iga 61mg/dL  
    • I was tested for the full panel, I believe. I had normal values for t-transglutaminase (ttg) igg,t-transglutaminase (ttg) iga, deamidated gliadin abs igg, deamidated gliadin abs iga, and immunoglobulin a qn serum.
