Recently Diagnosed In College
Posted 05 October 2012 - 11:35 AM
Iíve recently been diagnosed as gluten intolerant/ Celiac (I got the blood test and it was negative-- however my total IGA was low, so the doctor thinks it was false) and Iíve been having a rough time recently. Iíve been gluten free for 6 weeks, and initially I felt great! I had some withdrawals at first, but after about a week my energy was up, I no longer felt sick after eating, and no more brain fog or gastrointestinal distress. However, in the last 2 weeks, Iíve been feeling a lot worse with nausea and stomach cramps after meals and my nutritionist has advised me to cut out diary, soy, eggs, sugar, and raw vegetables. After almost a week I donít feel as sick anymore, but Iím still having problems with cramping, nausea, and gas after some (but not all) meals and I KNOW I am not eating gluten, any of my other allergens, or having any CC. Iím basically on the Paleo diet.
My question is-- is this normal to be having stomach issues 6 weeks in? No one seems to be able to provide any answers, and Iím having a hard time dealing with this at school and trying to maintain some semblance of normalcy. Iím tired of feeling sick! Any help anyone can provide would be so welcomed.

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.
