Worse Attack After Starting Diet And Being Exposed?
Posted 06 November 2012 - 04:58 PM
I never really had any diarreah or really any other symptoms that i knew of until this right rib cage pressure/pain came along.
So i decideed to go gluten free and i did this for about two weeks. Whether it was mind games or not i found that even after one day i didn't really feel that pressure in my right rib so that makes me think he was on to something.
(let me add i am lactose intolerant if that ever factors into any of this)
But what i find weird is this. I went all this time and never really had any symptoms until this right rib cage pressure and started the gluten free diet. One day coming home from work i was so hungry i stopped at McDonalds and had two hamburgers and fries.Well i started feeling bad and but the symtpoms im getting NOW are not what i had ever had before.
I guess my question is this. Had i not gone gluten i am thinking the two hamburgers wouldnt have had as big a deal on my body. Dopes going gluten free even for a short time and THEN getting glutoned make symptoms worse? I have weakness in my hands when i type, i get some twithcing in mt lower calves, had some bad headaches that i think are like sinus headaches(i do have season allergies so maybe that's it),. Can it be worse trying to go free from gluten and then getting attacked? That doesn't make a lot of sense or maybe it makes a lot of sense i don't know.
I just find it real weird all the sudden i have weak muscles,twitching, maybe even a burning blood sensation, my right pinkie all the way down can go numbish and tingle as well. No diarreah, no real stomach pain, didn't even get that right rib cage pressure back i got something that felt like my body was being poisoned or attacked(of course it was).
So here i sit not knowing whether or not for sure i am anything yet this stuff is happening fast. I go from nothing at all(maybe some slight fatigue and that rib cage pain) to all the sudden i think i have serious nerve problems. My hope is that i am allergic to gluten and i can stay away from it and let my body heal properly. I just found it real weird to go from nothing to muscle fatige that fast and thinking had i NEVER started the gluten diet that may have not happened. maybe it would have but i kind of have afeeling it wuldnt of.
Hard to explain all this sorry for being all over the place.

first time they have gluten, the symptoms are far worse than ever before. It's
certainly not universal, but is quite common. It's really very good proof that gluten
is no good for you, if it makes you sick this way.

Does that make sense? LOL
Perhaps when I've been gluten-free longer I'll notice more severity in my reaction to gluten, but for now I would have to say my reactions are not worse than when I was undiagnosed.... But that's just me.

I had 4 days of pretty rough intestinal pain and cramping after 5 weeks gluten-free and then getting glutened. The following 4-7 days were lighter symptoms followed by the last day of a 2 week recovery where I actually felt good again, as if it hadn't happened. And I didn't have a cheeseburger or anything. Mine was just cross contamination.

So it is unique to the celiac and gluten intolerant. If you had not started the gluten free diet, you would have still developed those neurological symptom reactions, but the onset may have been gradual enough that you didn't feel it all at once - we should call it the boiled frog syndrome, where the frog gets put in a pot of tap water on the stove.... and doesn't notice that the water got really hot, until it is too late.

Who knows why our bodies just realize they don't want this stuff after we go gluten-free... and if any gluten sneaks back in, the body knows how to tell us loud and clear, "Oh hail no!"
OK that's my very scientific explanation of it lol...

When our lives are squeezed by pressure and pain, what comes out is what is inside.

It did me! I think it is too sick on full time gluten to let you know. But when it has a chance to recover even a bit, it will let you know! It is actually a very good thing. It is super motivating!

I have learned so much from you people on this site. I don't know how I would have ever gone from my original "I will never be able to eat anything" to "It's just routine" without y'all. Thanks a million times.
