Getting Tired

6 posts in this topic

I have been messing with my diet here and there testing out different things, some I have been lucky and happy :) I tried but most things I have regretted dearly :( ! I am going to take a break on trying different things for a while and try again in a couple months to expand my diet more than it is. I ate tonight at Golden Corral. I know stupid me but my husband likes it from time to time so I ate a salad and a piece of fish from the skillet fish, and some icecream with carmel from a pump. Now I am having issues with my stomach. I thought I was playing it safe. Not getting any of the hot foods and keeping to a salad, and a piece of fish. I was wrong!!! :(

I know I have only been on the diet for a few weeks, and I feel like I am giving up to early, and shouldn't be dealing with this many issues right off the bat but I am. Could I be over reacting? I guess but I don't like running to the bathroom within 30 minutes of leaving the table and then there is the bubbly belly for the rest of the night. :angry:

If everything you ate was indeed gluten-free, I would think the possibility of cross-contamination would be huge at Golden Corral.

It's only been a few weeks. There is a lot to learn. You need to be patient with yourself. It will be worth it in the end. I felt like I was aging in reverse for a long time as I got better and better. I kept finding new symptoms which I hadn't even known were caused by gluten. It was worth every bit of frustration and difficulty. Good luck.

Thnaks, for your encouragement. I dont want to go back to gluten.. ever! :D

I'm just feeling frustrated by all the things that are making me sick. I knew doing this there would be a learning curve. My parents are gluten free and have been for 10 years now. I know that thy cheat a little bit here and there they tell me that they do, it took them 5 years to be able to eat small amounts of gluten without having issues. (small amounts would mean eating something like the filling out of a pie and leaving the crust, sushi the black wrap has wheat starch in it, most fast food restaurants due to CC) I know its going to take some time, I have the hardest time around my husband, its not his fault but he loves to eat and that used to be one of our things going out to eat, but now it seems that's out the door for the most part. (hubby works out of town through the week)

I chuckled at your comment of( "over re-acting).. I think as humans we think of the worse & hope for the best...

The more serious you are at the beginnning the better you will be at the end ...

CC is big anywhere you eat out but salad bars have tons of CC. Maybe you should have spoken to the mgr &asked if you could have a salad with whatever veggies from the storage bucket, still not safe but better than salad from the bar area....not even sure they would do this...never hurts to ask..

You are still so new to this lifestyle change... We all wish it could easy & fast but for most NOT... Also keep it simple to give your body a chance to do its healing..Tyr not to focus on what you can't do or eat but what you can have... Your mental attitude is just as important as healing your intestinal issues..body, mind & spirit all three must be in order for a complete healing to take place...

Take a deep breath, try to relax a little & enjoy knowing you are on your way to better health..positive thinking please.....

hugs

I am doing my best to stay positive but when I get hit with unexpected CC (ok slightly expected) I get kinds discouraged. I'm thinking its time to put my adventurous side, aside and just stick to the basics and eat at home for a while.

    • I'm glad I found these forums!  I will spend some more time this evening reading through them.  But I wanted to get my question out there just to see if anyone else might have answers quicker than I can sift through the forum for them.      I've been feeling terrible for about a year, and after an elimination diet last month, figured out that if nothing else, gluten/wheat is a problem.  After lots of research, I abandoned the elimination diet and added gluten back in, so that I could get tested for Celiac.   I was off gluten for 3 weeks, from mid-June until early July.  I've had it back in my diet for almost 3 weeks now.    My question is this: Since I was off gluten for 3 weeks, and now back on for almost 3, is that enough time on to yield a positive Celiac blood test, if that indeed is what I have?  All the research I've done says 4-6 weeks for a gluten challenge, but is that really necessary if I was only not eating it for 3 weeks?  I am desperate to get this testing done and over with.  I feel terrible all the time and getting through the day is a struggle.  My doctor ran allergy panels already and everything came back clear except for a mild wheat allergy.  So if nothing else, I'll have to give up wheat for sure at the end of all this.  I get the feeling she doesn't know a ton about Celiac though, so I'm doing a lot of the research on my own. Any advice or information would be so appreciated! 
    • Hi Michael, That's quite a spike in blood pressure!  I haven't tested that myself and don't want to if it means I have to eat gluten.  Blood pressure testing to identify food reactions is something that has come up before.  It sounds like it might be possible but I don't know how much study has been done on it.  Probably not much since it is such a simple, straight forward idea. Welcome to the forum!
    • Hi Megan, Did the doctor test you for celiac disease?  You really shouldn't go gluten-free until all the testing for celiac disease is completed.  It is a little odd for a doctor to tell you to go gluten-free for no reason IMHO.  Did he/she explain the reason for it? Personally, I have learned over the years what I can eat safely and what I can't.  Occasionally I get hit but it is rare.  Simplifying your diet is a good first step.  Avoiding processed foods for a while and dairy also is good.  I suggest any change you make last for a month at least. Then try the food again. If you are eating 100 random ingredients/foods each day it is hard to figure these things out.  If you reduce it to a much smaller number of foods then things become simpler. Welcome to the forum!

    • hey! Wondering if I can get some good info/help from you guys! I just signed up for this website couple weeks ago. Whenever I would Google things this was always the first to pop up and I always found info on things I googled. I am pretty new to the gluten free thing. I had a hernia surgery back in Jan and after that I kept throwing up after eating, the DR. told me it was probably acid reflex caused from surgery but all the meds I tried nothing helped. I went back and was told to cut gluten out. I have been doing so since. When I first started I felt like I had it under control and didn't throw up for 3 weeks, now I find it happening more often. I do buy gluten-free things and read labels to the best I can. My frustration comes from not knowing what its from. How do you know if its from the day before or what you just ate? I hate not knowing. Especially when I haven't had gluten (or so I think) I have been keeping a journal but I just find it so hard. I get this feeling in my stomach and can feel it in my throat. Sometimes I puke once sometimes 5 times! Yesterday for lunch I made an omlet with chicken mushrooms and feta cheese. I threw up almost 20 min after. I have also tried the no dairy thing and it doesn't seem to make a difference so I don't think dairy is an issue as well.
