I started Country Life coenzyme B complex vitamins 3 days ago and I am just wondering if you feel worse before better. My third day on them and I was nauseated most of the day and just felt off, my whole body, then a bad headache in the evening. I also felt off the first 2 days of taking the vitamin. I haven't changed anything else, still on chicken and veggie soup with some fruits. My anxiety level even went up so I had to get back on my meds. Just so weird to think vitamins can do this. Maybe I was so low in my B levels..?? Just don't know what is going on. I'm kind of scared to start the D vitamins.

I took 1 B Complex vitamin for about 5 days. I felt great. I ran out, I took another brand. I felt nauseated and headache for about a waeek. I think it might have wheat or corn in it, but I can't find it on the label.

I need to find out what the first Brand of B vitamins was and get back to edit this.

If you take B vitamins on an empty stomach they can make you feel sick. Be sure to take them after eating a meal.

I think my GI is too tender for vitamins still. I have tried so many brands including Celiact and all wonk my stomach. Some have soy derivatives (vit e, lecithin), some have dairy components (probiotic), some have blah blah. The B vitamins esp nail me. I think a lot of people are ODing on them without realizing it because their water soluble nature has led us to believe more is better. You may also find out that vitamin D will trash your GI system if you take it in the doses that you need to move it up to normal levels.

My new philosophy is to throw the vitamins out and not take them without having the levels checked and verified by a doctor.

Yes this one has soy lethicin and I'm not tolerating soy now but I was under the impression that that soy lethicin is not the soy that you have allergy to, that it's not the same soy. Is that true?

It depends on the person. Most who cannot tolerate soy find that they can tolerate soy lecithin. But there are others who cannot tolerate either. It's trial and error. Leader makes a vitamin D supplement that is non soy so that is what I take.

Ok thanks, it seems I'm not tolerating either. My head feels as though I would be allergic to pollen and I stuck my head in a bucket of it :)

    • I already did. Thats how i found the place. Its amazing to actually go to a restraunt again.
    • This is EXACTLY what happens to me. It has twice now and both times was after both glutening episodes but once it was the day after and the other time it was a week and a half. So I'm still not sure if it's related or strange bug bites...

      Did they stop happening when she stopped being glutened? Did you decide they were definitely related? I'm really confused by this and would love to know whether to insecticide my house or....
    • Thankyou both! I was wondering if my high levels left much doubt on the diagnosis. I don't see the GI until the 15th Sep and I don't think I can stand to eat gluten in that time. If he tells me to I will do so after then. After 25 years of symptoms I don't think there is much chance of healing my bowel In a couple of weeks. I'm actually terrified of the damage they might find. But I think I will need the endo since there may be other things going on with me. So great they didn't put your son through the biopsy! Once I have a formal diagnosis I have my kids to worry about also. I can't even stand the thought of my daughter having a blood test. I think she would need to be sedated as she is so fearful and pain sensitive. My son is not yet 2 so I don't think they will test him. I'm feeling so off at the moment. I think I have some anxiety and reflux going on complicating things quite a bit.
    • My son's antibodies were 300. Based on his extremely high levels, his pediatric GI suggested genetic testing instead of the biopsy. Genetic testing can't diagnose celiac on its own but combined with such high levels, the gi dr was confident a positive genetic test would confidently diagnose celiac. He warned that biopsies are small snapshots of the intestine and can miss damage. He said this is an approach used very often in Europe but not as much in the US. What sold me on that approach was the ability to put my son directly on a gluten free diet instead of waiting three weeks for the biopsy, during which time he would continue to eat gluten and feel terrible. I'm not sure if this is more common with younger patients though (our son is two), based on the idea that he's had less time to inflict damage that would show in a biopsy? We are very happy that we immediately started the gluten free diet and chose the genetic testing. Our son got the proper diagnosis and his recent number shows a drop to 71 after only 4.5 months gluten free! Not sure if this helps. Good luck and I hope you feel better soon!
    • We have been off gluten for a while now, and symptoms return when I've allowed gluten full meals… so something still isn't sitting right with me.  Checking with her doc about seeing a pediactric GI although I'm not sure how long that will take since we live in small town America. I know she didn't get at least one of the recommended full panel tests but maybe two, can someone help clarify, or is she missing two? DGP for sure and possibly EMA? And if I understand what I'm reading in other posts that the DGP can be more accurate? Thanks Her blood panel results: Ttg ab iga <.5u/ml ttg igg <.8u/ml aga ab iga <.2 u/ml aga an igg <.7u/ml iga 61mg/dL
