New Vitamins

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 :)

    • egs1707. Are you in Canada?  It's NOT a good idea to go gluten free between now & the GI appt. and here's why.... MOST of us have MUCH stronger reactions to gluten when we go back on it for the endoscopy. A lot of people have had such strong reactions that they have been entirely unable to complete the challenge and have to call it quits. This means they never get an official dx. It's your call, you make the choice. However, I will say that you don't have to eat a lot of gluten, a couple saltines or a slice of bread per day. 
    • You mentioned the tight head. Yes, both my celiac sibling and I had head pressure. Mine was horrible last glutening with eye pain as well. Like someone put a vice around my temples. I swore it felt like a parasite infected my gut, thyroid and brain. It is going away mostly, still have it on and off a bit.  My brother said his naturopath informed him some celiacs get a bit of inflammation in the brain.   
    • Hi All this is my blood test result 1.immunogloblulin serum 203 ( 87-350) 2.Deamidated Gliadin IGA  4 ( 0-19 negative) 3.Deamidated Gliadin IGG 3(0-19 negative) 4.Transglutainase IGA <2 ( 0-3 negative) 5.Transglutainase IGG <2 ( 0-3 negative) does it mean most likely no celiac ? thanks.  
    • At the moment it's microwave rice packets as it needs to be something easy for lunch at work. What do you choose for breakfast? At the moment I have gluten-free porridge oats with fruits but also seeing oats are a bit of a gamble in the early days. Trying to figure out how long a reaction takes to show up i.e. if I feel ropey later in the day is it really lunch as I'm blaming at present or actually is it something from the morning or even night before? The food is the toughest bit for me right now; wasn't that great with it before so will need plenty ideas from you good people... seems I'm in the right place though   
    • I know what you're going through - it's that grieving process and it's tough.  I was diagnosed in 2013, and aside from an occasional pity party, I don't look back. I have my restaurants where I feel safe, I have the food I know I can eat, and I get on with my life.  I'm lucky that I live in a big city with lots of options, but you can make this work, and you will feel better and once you do, you'll stop grieving.  The people on this site helped enormously. It is tough in the beginning to know if you've been 'glutened' vs. just going through withdrawal.  For that reason alone, it's best to avoid restaurants for a little while and be careful at home - just to be sure what's happening.  Eventually you'll be able to get back to your version of 'normal'.  Oh, I also have hypothyroid/hashimoto's.  No big deal, I take synthroid. Quinoa, eggs, nuts and beans for protein.  You don't have to go crazy on the cooking.  Just eat a lot of whole foods.  There are a lot of complicated recipes out there, but now may not be the time.  Rice noodles in veggie bouillon - easy and cheap.  gluten-free pasta with olive oil, parmesan and garlic - easy.  I eat a lot of rice and have never had a problem - you're not getting it out of one of those bulk bins, are you?  That could be contaminated.  Go with packaged.  Do you have access to the Macro Vegetarian brand of prepared rice dishes (in the refrigerated section).  They have several that are gluten free, they're delicious heated and with a little gluten-free soy sauce.  They're my go to on days I don't want to cook. Good luck!
