3 posts in this topic

Hi, my name is Eileen and I have really been sick since 3/17/12, all of a sudden I had this terrible sick feeling and I lost my appitite and I developed this bad taste in my mouth. I've been to a series of doctors, including my GI, and he has given me a scrip for a series of blood test to see if I do have celiac. It all started with the coffee, it started making me really sick. I thought maybe it was the 1% milk I was putting in my coffee, so I decided to switch to Soy milk, I was still feeling very sick, it was definently the coffee. This should be very interesting, I have gluetn free cereal in the morning, along with the Soy and I seem fine. Oh, if you only knew how sick I was, and all my bloodtest were coming up normal. I will post and let you know how it goes with the bloodtest, it takes 10 days for the results.

Let us know! Coffee is hard on your stomach. And I can sympathize with being so sick since I experienced the same thing. If the test comes back negative but you find a gluten free diet makes you feel better, I would stick with it!

I don't know what's making you ill, but keep a food diary. Document everything that gets past your mouth to include lotions and lipsticks/lip balms.

Gluten intolerance and dairy intolerance often go hand in hand until some healing can take place in the small intestines. Dairy can be successfully be reintroduced after a time out.

If your GI might recommend an endoscopy test to check out your small intestines, it's recommended that you continue to digest gluten. If that's not an option try to schedule your appointment asap.

Celiac can be triggered by many things like stress, mono, illness, pregnancy, surgery or any trama. Never heard about coffee ;) . Hopefully, you will know soon.

Hope you get your answers shortly. :)

    • I've been diagnosed with celiac a few months ago I thought that I had it for a while now it runs in the family.  I found out I had it a few months back when I ate chick fi a sandwich and had to go to the ER because I couldn't stop throwing up. They didn't know what it was and it took a few more months for anyone to take me seriously and find out what's wrong   Anyways I've gone gluten free now and I still have pains whenever I eat ANYTHING. It's cramping and burning and feels like my stomach is on fire.  I also have pains...below which I'm not sure what it is.  I ate a salad today, and now i'm in pain the salad had cheese, onion on it no dressing or any breading... Maybe I should stay away from cheese, I think it may be lactose and can't eat soy.   I ate some gluten free chex the other day with rice milk and ended up in pain.. I don't know maybe it's more than just celiac. I don't know if this is normal for people just going gluten free...maybe there was some hidden gluten in those foods. I don't know.   All i know is that this pain is hurting me and I'm tired. Thanks for reading...this is my first post.
    • I found my gas issues were caused by carbs, and sugars, something about how the bacteria in my gut changed and started making me gassy and extremely bloated when they got a hold of any thing more then a tbsp of grains, beans, fruit, or starch carbs. And no amount of medicine helped. Changed to 1/4 servings of those and mostly protein, fat diet. As for vitamin supplements I found I have to take B vitamin supplements 3 times a day to not go zombie mode. I personally found Liquid Vitamins Energy & Stress and the Nero-logic from them helps along with the occasional 1/2 bottle of 5 hour. As to carbonated water I avoided it when bloated cause it made me feel worse.
    • Butterbean, do go have a read of the dermatitis herpetiformis section.  See if anyone's story sound familiar to what you're experiencing.
    • Hi all. Well, it's been around twenty days since I've been taking Gas-X like meds (with simethicone), but no relief. Maybe I should drink bigger dose... Currently, I'm taking 80 mg four times per day.
      I'm so exhausted, both mentally and physically... Anyway, I have two questions:
      First, is it good or bad to drink mineral/carbonated water if you have severe trapped gas like me?
      Second: Is it possible to regain some physical strength/relieve fatigue with vitamin supplements? Thanks in advance.
    • I have had so many issues with my teeth--I keep getting decay and I have had filling after filling.  This past week, my dentist told me I may need a crown, which is pricey. I also have two missing teeth, which was a genetic thing that runs in my family. I am sick of hygienists telling me I am not doing enough brushing, flossing rinsing.  I do all three religiously (can't even imagine how bad my mouth would be if I didn't...)  Thankfully, last time I had my teeth cleaned, the hygienist said that my mouth was the cleanest one she had seen in years. And, she said, "something happened to your teeth developmentally." I explained how I had undiagnosed celiac disease many years. I am only 31... It is really disheartening.   What do you guys do to afford all this dental care?  My insurance doesn't cover a whole lot.  Thankfully, my dentist has felt bad and gives me discounts here and there.
