You are trying to digest food on a very raw gut. Yes, it is normal for your gut to have a hard time when it is not feeling well. You can help it heal by taking some probiotics, and by taking digestive enzymes with meals. Gluten can suppress the formation of digestive enzymes in the pancreas. Some people also take L-glutamine to help heal the gut.

Yes, digestive enzymes and L-glutamine can help your gut heal. Then, you'll just need to be patient. Eventually, you'll be able to add in some foods...and all will be well.

And don't forget the L-glutamine--it's cheap!

hey guys,

happy i found this forum.. I'm a 4th year college student and although i feel i've been having symptoms of gluten intolerance for a while.. it wasnt until just recently that i really started to research in (due to my following question).

Do any other celiac's out there suffer from severe/widespread tendonitis? I know that it can cause nutrient deficiency and I am/ was a very active person (rock climbing, biking, boarding) and seem to develop tendonitis after about every activity i embark on.

I was recently diagnosed as well (almost a month ago) but I had to withdraw from classes/quit job and move home because in August of course I had no idea what was wrong (nor did any doctor until I saw Dr. Rudert in Atlanta) but I thought I had been eating gluten-free since oct 8th but of course kept accidentally making some mistakes as I got this sorted out so technically I've probably been gluten-free for a week? my point is I am not having as severe stomach pain/spasms but started feeling flu-like with aching muscles and joints and figured withdrawals maybe? sometimes after meals my stomach will hurt a little but I think it's expected since I am really just starting this-especially since the pain is NOTHING like it was from June-September. Gradually getting there & I hope you do to glutenfree015 (I also initially had a false negative)

    • Over the past month or so, I have been have a fuzzy feeling in my left ear canal. The best I can describe is it feels like there is a bug in my ear, but when ear is checked, no bug but the fuzzy stays.  Any ideas?  Or is this one of those strange neurological symptoms from gluten?  Please don't tell me you need to get ti checked out, because all the doctors will say is "There's nothing wrong, everything's normal." BLAH!
    • Breakfast on the go is always trickiest for me - I go with a whole fruit - banana, apple - or a yogurt, or a small bag of nuts.  Occasionally, I have a couple of hardboiled eggs at my local pret a manger.  Much prefer breakfast at home, where I can make myself an egg and cheese sandwich with avocado on gluten free toast.  Or cereal ;-)
    • thanks for your input, the reason I do the blood test is because I found out my duagther has it recently and she carry dq2 gene,so must be from my husband or me...im in the process waiting for my genetic test back,,by the way,I do have lots of celiac symptom,so it could be gluten sensitiive you said,thanks again.  
    • No I'm in the UK, from what I've been told that's a good thing for gluten labeling and standards compliance. What you and everyone else on here says makes me sense than what the doctors are saying (a confused message at best is what they're giving me, each one with a slightly different version of it). My referral letter is in the post so on theory appointment may not be that far away. I have a load of my favourite Quorn stuff (non-gluten-free version) in the freezer so perhaps using that up may be a good way to proceed for now. I'm out at the moment and torn whether to try chips from a café, in the strict gluten-free future would probably be a no-no but in current situation probably not so bad...
    • I also only really eat one meal a day and always after I get home. I never really feel hungrey. I call it 'Pavlov's dog in reverse'.  I think it comes from so many years of food making me sick. I have gotten to the point where I now at least can eat a sandwhich and some fruit during the day but it wasn't a quick process. When folks get like that it is very important to make sure that one meal has a good amount of both calories and nutrtion.  If your diet is how you describe you are starving yourself.  You need to get yourself used to eating again.  What helped me was carrying a baggie with some nuts and dry fruit with maybe even a handful of gluten free pretzels and always some chocolate baking chips. I just ate couple pieces when I thought of it throughout the day. A little bit of cheese and a couple safe crackers, a piece of fruit or a small tin or individual serving snack pack are also good. You need to get some nutrition during the day so you can feel up to cooking a simple full meal  for dinner. I hope your feeling better soon.
