A year ago I started having sudden onset nausea. If i could sneeze it would immediately go away. Now one year later my symptoms have increased to the point of trips to the emergency room. I have lost 25 lbs, I suffer from constant belching, I have constant chest pressure and at times sharp pain in what feels like my heart. I oten have heart palpitations. I sometimes have a constricted feeling in my throat and a tingling sensation in my lower face and jaw. Occasionally I have blood in toliet after a bowel movement. I have trouble sleeping because of symptoms. My family are having a hard time believing me because my symptoms are all over the place. I am very depressed and unable to perform the simplest of task

I have a appointment with a gastroendinoligist this afternoon. I also have no health insurance. I m scarrd

I do not want to live like this anymore. Any advice on what to say or ask doctor. Please help i do not think i

can live one more day like this. Thanks for taking the time to read this, Laura

I am so sorry you are feeling so badly. It is very scary when you have these symptoms and you don't know what is going on. It is compounded by the worry about the cost of accessing care.

Be sure to make a written list of all your symptoms, maybe even print one for the doctor. It is easy to forget details that might be important for the doc to know.

So many things could be going on. I would worry especially about the feeling of pain near your heart, you definitely need a doctor to help you sort these things out...

Please do let us know how things go with the doctor, and let us know what tests he is doing. It is impossible for anyone to offer ideas at this point because there is no hard information to work with and most of us are not medical professionals. We can help interpret tests and share our experiences.

There are many, many people here who have been in that moment of having terrible symptoms, not knowing what is going on, and being very frightened. They are a wonderful support and I hope some of them will drop in here soon.

Hang in there, and stay in touch! Welcome, by the way!

I second what beachbirdie said, and while it may be too late for your dr's appointment, I'd also want to ask if you've noticed whether the symptoms are worse after eating any particular foods? It may be gluten, but it may also be something else like msg or soy or sulfites or artificial flavors (or some combination of those!).

Hopefully you get some answers from the Dr.

    • Do you mean something like a protein powder you could mix up?  A lot of them in the US seem to be gluten free.  Maybe just go to your local store and read all the labels?
    • Yeah I ended up allergic to corn, olives, sesame, whey, and peanuts and intolerant to dairy, soy, yeast, enzyme issues with breaking down meats, and egg yolks, along with extreme bloat with any kind of carbs/sugars in moderate amounts. And very adverse reactions to certain artificial sweeteners. So your not alone in all the other issues cropping up, it happens as our bodies adjust.  I eat a bunch of stir frys with veggies, egg whites, plenty of  avocados, and toasted and raw forms of almonds, coconut, cashews, walnuts, hemp seeds, pumpkin seeds, flax seeds, sancha inchi seeds, chia seeds, and sunflower seeds in all forms including making them into butters, spreads, and incorporating them into sauces.   Most meals are forms of soups, omelettes, and stir frys. I do the seeds and nuts on rotation same with my veggies and snack on fruits in small amounts along with some homemade baked goods I make for markets. I do suggest a rotation of foods, my dietician said I need to rotate my foods to prevent more issues, making sure I am off one one for at least 7-14 days at a time completely. I find changing up the spices and rotating my cuisine base works well. I also make puddings, and protein shakes along with nut/seed milks, and different bases and extract flavorings to get my random cravings Taken care of. Guess take what you can from this and and see how it can help you,    As to the tinging, I ended up with both B vitamin and magnesium deficiency issues, the magnesium one caused a fire like tingling in my arms, legs and back, along with muscle pain. Ended up on a doctors best powder form of it so I can dose it out right, and found epsom salt bathes helped.  
    • Hi, I've gained so much knowledge on this forum over the past few months, which I am so thankful for. I can see how much hell people are going through with this disease and it's so lovely to see how much support and advice people give to others on here. I'd like a little bit of reassurance and advice myself from anyone that can help. I've been gluten free for six months. Two weeks after going gluten free I realised I also had a problem with corn so cut out processed food. Over the following weeks and months I continually had problems with food; fruit, dairy, a lot of vegetables, nuts, soya....it's basically dwindled down to just eating potatoes (not white potatoes), cucumber, lettuce, small amounts of red onion, spring onion, sprouts and beetroot. There may be more things I could be okay with but to be honest I'm too scared to try.  Is this all normal? Am I an extreme case? I've been taking some digestive enzymes and probiotics for about six weeks, my acid reflux has dramatically decreased but I always have a lot of loud noises going on in my guts, I'm guessing this is the probiotics working.  I've lost nearly 3st in weight since this started - which I'm not complaining about as I was overweight due to thyroid problems. I've had loads of blood tests done recently, all organs are working 'great' according to my doctor, the only thing they've picked up on is ketones, I seem to be having a glucose problem, which might explain my exhaustion and weight loss. I also have permanent numbness and sometimes tingling in one of my legs and sometimes hands and one shoulder, I thought it could have vitamin B12 deficiency but that's okay according to blood tests. I would be greatful for any replies. Thanks for reading.
    • Hi everyone, I am doing job in restaurant at evening 5 to 12 during working hours no time to do a dinner. I'm thinking to make a shake but don't know the gluten free vitamin or supplement brand which one is good for me and easily available in Berlin Germany to make me fit cause last one week i feel weak. I'm 28 year old. Sincerely
    • Hey there just wanted to warn anyone that has other allergies- these crackers may not be a good choice! I'm mildly sensitive to MSG- I only react if there's a giant amount like in Chinese food or Ramen noodles, etc.  I literally have a to eat TONS of a the offending food before reacting.  Anyway, I was excited to try these Trader Joes pumpkin crackers, kept hearing about them on the radio .... and they're gluten free!  (I have Hashi's).  I ate about 3/4 of the box last night. Woke up this morning with a red itchy face and nasal congestion, headache, anxiety. Hallmark symptoms for me of high MSG intake. (It does say yeast extract on the side but it's pretty far down the list). So if you're sensitive.... stay away! Apparently these particular crackers are loaded with it.
