Please Help.....bloated

6 posts in this topic

Hi everyone, I am in need of some advise. I have been bloated for probably 3 weeks now. I am really watching what I eat and I even go without eating just to see if I can get this feeling to go away. I could use some ideas of maybe why but for sure how to get rid of this pregnant feeling. :huh::(

Can you tell us what you are eating?

Are you eating gluten free?

If so, how long have you been gluten free?

Any possibility of cross contamination?

Any other food intolerances? Perhaps one surfaced?

I have been gluten free for 5 years now. I am real careful about CC but it could always happen. The only other this I can think of is a lot of fresh fruits and vegetables.

Are you eating anything which contains soy? Soy can cause big bloat problems.

Hi Crissy, good to see you back (I think :rolleyes: )

Some veggies are known to cause gas. Cabbage for one comes to mind. Maybe going for a bland diet...banana's, apple sauce, rice to get your tummy settled.

Then try to bring one veggie in at a time

I couldn't help but check your age. It might be menopause. I'm no expert on menopause at all (I'm too young, although I swear I would get hot flashes, along with cold flashes, when I was eating gluten and dairy), but I do know that hormonal changes can cause all sorts of stuff to happen.

Now I suspect that I've been a celiac for around 12 years, but about 6 years ago, when I tried birth control pills for the first time, (ie: hormonal changes), I got seriously bloated. It got better probably 50% better when I quit the pills, although it didn't go away completely. Of course, birth control pills are designed to mimic pregnancy.

Not everything is diet related though. If you haven't eaten anything weird or different from your norm, and especially if not eating isn't making it go away, I'd be looking for other reasons for it. A trip to the doctor might be in order.

    • Thank you cyclinglady! We'll just keep pushing forward and we'll get things figured out one way or another. You have been most helpful and informative and given me some great resources and things to consider. I really appreciate it! I definitely feel better as I've felt like a crazy mom lately thinking through the test results and everything. Even if it turns out to not be celiac or gluten related, at least I can say we did our due diligence and looked under every rock to find the source of his troubles. Thanks again!  Take care! 
    • Anxiety is quite a common symptom with undiagnosed celiacs. It should improve if not disappear when you go gluten free. Be sure to CONTINUE eating gluten until the endoscopy!   Welcome to the club!
    • Although serological tests are useful for identifying celiac disease, it is well known that a small minority of celiacs are seronegative, and show no blood markers for celiac disease. A team of researchers wanted to define the prevalence and features of seronegative compared to seropositive celiac disease, and to establish whether celiac disease is a common cause of seronegative villous atrophy.

    • This was absolutely me before diagnosis.  The worst of all of my Celiac symptoms occurred in the morning.  The anxiety was terrible in the mornings, I had horrible nausea, no appetite, felt light headed, dizzy and shaky, diarrhea, stomach cramps... the works.  Honestly, I don't know if it was the symptoms causing the anxiety, the anxiety making my symptoms worse, or a combination.  I almost dropped out of school because I felt so terrible every morning I didn't want to leave the house to go to class.  The first few doctors I saw insisted all of my symptoms were psychological and tried to give me anti-depressants/anti-anxiety meds, but I knew there was something else wrong with me.  I had always been a bit "high-strung," but for the year I was really sick before diagnosis, the anxiety got out of control. I was diagnosed with celiac disease 6 months ago and have been gluten free ever since.  It took time, but everything is gradually improving.  The morning anxiety is much improved and some mornings, is completely gone.  I realized a month or two ago that I no longer spend the first hour after waking up gagging and dry-heaving, something I had done for so many years that I just thought it was normal for me.  I can brush my teeth and my tongue without feeling like I'm going to puke.  I eat breakfast now, which I have never done, because I was always too anxious and nauseous in the mornings to be hungry.  I am not "all better."  I still have bad days and even bad weeks.  If I get glutened the anxiety comes back full force.  If I'm super-stressed out or letting my health slide (not eating well, not sleeping enough) the AM anxiety seems to return.  But, it has been slowly improving over the last 6 months and has become so much more manageable.   Your anxiety could be a separate disorder from the celiac disease, but for me, it seems it was absolutely related and continues to get better.  Don't get discouraged if you don't see an immediate improvement or experience relapses after improving.  Often, I feel like it's a two-step-forward, one-step-back kind of thing, but it is getting better.
    • I have suffered with GERD for 20 years and accidently found out it was a gluten intolerance. I had gone on Atkins years ago and noticed that I had no GERD symptoms while on the diet. I didn't make the connection at that time. Then I went on the Mayo Diet back in the winter and once again, the constant was having no bread primarily. I had also noticed that I would have major attacks anytime I ate Italian food. I blamed it on the onions, the tomatoes, herbs...but I could tolerate all those foods separately. Then, like a lightning bolt...it hit me...the culprit was the "innocent" pasta. BINGO!!  I went gluten-free in March 2016 and I have had no GERD now in 5 months. I feel as if it is a gift to me.
