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!!!!

    • They didn't suggest any probiotic support. Ultimately the side-effects of this drug stabilized approaching the end of the course of treatment, though after it was finished, I was perhaps a bit improved, but no profound symptom resolution for me. Darn! The search goes on.
    • Thankyou I have found that I became intolerant of dairy and having cut it out feeling better but if I come into accidental consumption the symptoms are similar to that of gluten but not as severe .. Patience ay ?
    • I checked the Gluten Free Watchdog (I subscribe) and did not find this  particular product, but found the company's oat bran flakes which did not list any gluten ingrediants, but barley was found in testing well over 20 parts per million.  I would stick with certified gluten-free cereals, personally.  I think it is "hit or miss" on grain products.    
    • It is normal for other intolerances to become apparent once you remove gluten. I don't know why, perhaps as the immune system is free'd from chasing gluten it finds new targets? A lot of coeliacs find they have to cut out dairy as well for example. It's certainly my number one culprit for skin issues.  It also can take time for removing gluten to have its full effect, as antibodies will remain in the body for up to 6 months. So the reaction could still be to gluten in a way. 
    • I did not re-test my antibodies for a full year after diagnosis but I think your daughter should be checked again in 6 months.  If she does have celiac, and I really am sure she does regardless of what this doc seems to think, they should decrease in 6 months.  If she is fast healer, they could potentially be in the normal range but it varies from person to person. She did show damage in her small intestine but at 4 years of age, damage would not have progressed to the point where this doctor could be convinced it is Celiac.  They set the bar way too high. Kind of silly to require you to damage her insides further to prove it to the AMA. I think she should go gluten-free, as you have stated, and re-scope her in 6 months to see how the original damage looks then. If it is gone, then maybe that would convince them. The 4 out 5 criteria is not done in kids because, I am convinced, of liability issues. They just do not want to get sued if by some small chance, they diagnosed someone who did not have Celiac.  I think the odds of that are pretty slim, when you think about it. Even with a misdiagnosis, eating gluten free will never harm anyone. But as children are minors and cannot legally make medical decisions on their own like adults can, that rule is out for them.
