In Hindsigh, Maybe It Wasnt A Good Idea

9 posts in this topic

My dr appt with the GI isnt until Tuesday, but I have been playing around with eliminating foods and seeing what happens. I tend to react almost immediatley. I went 2 days without eating Gluten and felt really..fantastic. I wasnt dragging, I felt alert and awake and this is just after 2 days. I was still having some digestion issues but I have always had trouble with eggs. So today, I am thinking wow, I feel so good that I bet I had just been not feeling well..maybe I had a cold, maybe because my primary mentioned Celiac to me I was sort of being a hypochondriac and thought I had symptoms of it, maybe it was in my head and Im fine.

So at work ( I waitress) I had some toast...and felt fine. nothing happened. No headache, no body aches, no chill or low grade fever. So I was like ok..now I feel stupid, Im fine.

On the way home, I stop at the Donut shop to get my coffee..and a muffin. I said the heck with it..Im fine.

Im not fine :(

I just want to know what is causing this..is it really gluten? what can make me feel so horrible? Why cant I just be normal and eat what I want? Why is this happening out of NO WHERE????

The stomach thing has been going on for years..but the head stuff is relatively new.

It takes most people years to develop enough damage that it shows up in different body systems.

Eggs could be a sign of your gall bladder/liver is very upset with you, because they are full of fat. Off of gluten, eating fat (like gluten free versions of muffins, doughnuts, etc) can be easier because the gall bladder and liver are working better.

It's not happening out of nowhere. You said yourself :

"The stomach thing has been going on for years"

You have now progressed to the next stage where it has done so much damage to the intestines & is now doing damage to other parts of your body. And even that has been in progress --- it's just deteriorated to the point that you FEEL it now.

I actually dont have a gall bladder, it was removed 13 years ago.

I suppose you are right. I do want to thank everyone on the boards for dealing with my whining and ranting. This is very new to me. Though not the worst thing that can happen, and certainly not the end of the world, I always assumed food allergies and such were things that happened to OTHER people, and not me. lol.

So its all very surreal right now. I think its going to take a while to process.

Whine is always better when shared with friends. ;)

I will echo what Jestgar says. Whine away. Sometimes we rant pretty good too!

I know it's shocking at first. All I could think of was all the foods I could never have again. My favorite foods. The comfort foods. But it's weird --- I don't think about those things at all now. In fact, the thought of them turns me off. I've read quite a few who have said that.

Hang in there. We're here for you. smile.gif

Chocolaye chip muffins from Dunkin Donuts are my all time most favorite things to eat. I am remembering back to a few days ago when I felt AMAZING (relatively) and thats how I want to feel all the time. So I guess I will do what I need to do. I just cant wait to see the dr and find out for sure.

I do know that even if she comes back and says she doesnt think its Celiac, I KNOW how I feel, I KNOW how much better I felt by not eating wheat and since there is no harm in NOT eating it, thats what I will do, regardless.

I definitely have a problem with eggs and too much dairy. Eggs do me in within minutes of eating, just goes right through me. I dont mean if eggs are an ingredient, but just straight eggs...its hell. And too much creamy milk/cream or liquidy type cheese is just awful too. I am ok with hard cheese and skim milk, but creamy stuff kills me.

I dont know if its related to the Celiac or not..I have been reading and saw how many people have trouble with it first while healing. I hope thats all it is and not a seperate allergy :(

It could very well be b/c of celiac. You may find you can get those foods back after you heal. And you may try them at say 6 mos. & not be able to tolerate them but try again @ 1 year & you will or 2 yrs. We all heal at different rates so it will be a trial & error thing.

    • pablito, here is the full serum (blood) panel. Make sure your doc runs ALL of the tests on it, not just 1 or 2. Insist!!!!! YOU are in charge. Remember that. Some people test negative on the most common 1 or 2 tests they run so it's always better to have the full panel run. Anti-Gliadin (AGA) IgA
      Anti-Gliadin (AGA) IgG
      Anti-Endomysial (EMA) IgA
      Anti-Tissue Transglutaminase (tTG) IgA
      Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) IgA and IgG
      Total Serum IgA   
      Also can be termed this way: Endomysial Antibody IgA
      Tissue Transglutaminase IgA 
      GLIADIN IgG
      GLIADIN IgA
      Total Serum IgA 
      Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) IgA and IgG Remember that celiac disease is a genetically inherited disease so it's important for you to find out if you have it and if so, then your kids & all first degree relatives (siblings, parents) need to be tested every 2 years in the absence of symptoms but right away if symptoms present. Do not go gluten free after the blood work as if you get positive blood work, you will need an endoscopy which you'll need to continue eating gluten for. The pimple things may or may not be the celiac rash as there are many skin problems associated with celiacs.
    • Hi, I've been experiencing on and off left side abd pain and bloating for about 3-4 years (doctors in the past didn't help much, just said I have IBS). My new doctor did some blood work and found out  my vitamin D was low, CRP was high.  Antigiladin Igg was a weak positive. I had an endoscopy done and the doctor confirmed I don't have Celiac, but she found very small ulcers (took Pepcid for 2 weeks). She also told me I have a leaky gut and non celiac gluten sensitivity. I'm taking probiotics for the leaky gut.  So for the past 3 months I've been eating gluten free and the pain came back 2 times.  The pain is always on the left side of my abdomen. Makes me feel weak, starts with constipation and usually ends with diarrhea. Tylenol helps the pain.  I'm waiting on my food allergy tests results to see if it can be anything other than gluten. So my question is, what does a weak positive Antigiladin IGG mean if a gluten free diet is not helping?  Could the "leaky gut" cause my Antigiladin IGG to rise? Really confused here, just want to start feeling better and not have the pain come back ever again.     Thanks
    • Thank you very much for the reply and advice I assume doctors didn't know or check into this disease too much back in the early 80's or my family doctor would have easily seen these symptoms and discussed this with me then. If I do have this disease it would explain a lot about my health and overall physical discomfort all my life. Pretty sad if it is the case and it could have been prevented but thankful I know about it now. I have made an apt with my doctor so shouldn't be long before I know for sure. Thanks again for your help
    • I continue to do more research but only found 3 journal articles which discuss the reversal of the fold pattern, possibly why I can't find answers I was waiting on on my latest celiac panel to come back so here it is, expecting slight cross contamination from eating out and possible several recent dentist visits. All three tests are based on a normal scale of 0-20 being within range.  DPG IgA - 24.5 DPG IgG – 6.84 tTg IgA – 22
