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!!!!

    • Kidney disease question
      GFR ranges are very strange.  We went through this with my husband.  Did you notice in Icelandgirl's link that there is no range that is considered good and normal?  I just had mine tested and the report said that normal was > 60.  As your report says, your value is only a problem if there is other evidence of kidney damage.
    • Kidney disease question
      Hi Matt I'd love answers to this one too. My own levels have varied since I have been monitored, over the last three or so years.   I asked my GP about this and I seem to recall she said to me that levels of hydration affect this number.  i.e. when my figures were in the 90s it was because I was super-hydrated. When my numbers were in the 70s she wasn't worried, either! I'm hoping someone with a better knowledge of these matters will chime in but the last time I was tested my gastroenterologist was very pleased with my kidney and liver function numbers - so it seems to me that when my own numbers were in the 70s on a couple of occasions I must have been  less well hydrated when I had the test those times? And that these numbers are therefore subject to variation.

      Kareng is correct.  There are also a number of good reference books on celiacs and gluten free issues.  Also several magazines.  The main thing is to find out the hidden and unusual sources of gluten, and also to be very careful when eating at restaurants.  I got glutened quite a few times at restaurants before I learned to triple check and began to find safe places.  Good luck. 
    • Kidney disease question
      Hi Matt, Since celiac impacts the whole body...I think kidneys are affected.  I have kidney stones and they are super fun(not) and my urologist says that it's fairly common with celiac and malabsorption.  I don't know specifically about kidney disease, but when I was in the hospital passing my stones...prior to passing, my GFR was around 60.  A few weeks later when my doctor did bloodwork it was 87.  Here is some info that may help.   https://www.kidney.org/atoz/content/gfr

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
