Help! Cant Eat Anything!
0

6 posts in this topic

hello, everybody.

i have big, i mean B.I.G. problem! i can not eat, anything i eat, messes up my stomach. i get cramps, loud noises, bloating, urgent need to use the restroom and that from anything that i eat. i can not even drink a protein shake...

i am not an american, i got here a year ago on my visit of my, that time boyfriend, we got married spontaniously and i stayed. since my immigration aint ready yet, i simply have no insurance to go to the doc. i must say i got sick long time ago ( the problems started two months into my stay. ) i must note that i NEVER had any troubles with my stomach in life, ever..but since i am here i didnt only gain at least 50 pounds i also feel like crap after i eat.

first i noticed i got bloated after eating anything baked or breaded. then i couldnt eat onion or garlic, then pickles and egg and now, i ate two spoons of pumpkinsoup seven hrs ago, after not eating anything for 26hrs, and i am in pain, stomach making noises like something is dying inside. i dont know what to do or what even try to eat. i feel like that fo three days now, i lost four pounds, which is good, but i rather eat a healthy diet and work ou.

i am not allergic to anything, never wa am under the impression that american food is not too good for me.. i grew up with almost all organic and NOT processed food, always home cooked. i cook a lot, but my husband eats it all byhimself, because i cant.

i recently found out that america has genetically modified wheat, since 1985 it is standart, and since then the celliac cases exploded. europe had tested this wheat and corn on mice, and they were dying twice as fast as the controll group.

we buy o

ur food at trader joes, the store swears they do not use genetically modified food, but i still cant eat their bread.well at the moment i cant eat anything anyway..i also cant find sleep, and if i do, then i wake up every two hrs. i am groggy all day.i am sorry if the post sounds like its written by someone who hasnt slept two nights in a row.. but thats how it is.. and on top of that, the forum is slowing my tablet down. if somebody has experienced anything simmilar to that, please help me to find a way out of this. its horrible, canteven go anywhere, because my stomach is loud, it is embarrasing

There are many illnesses that can have the same symptoms. (parasites, H. Ployri, infection) You really need to get tested, and that would be a full work up. Celiac can be triggered by stressfull situations (getting married suddenly away from home)

A protein shake is not the way to go in this situation because most of these intolerance/reactions are from PROTEIN. Gluten is the protein chain of wheat, rye, and barley.

Try keeping a food journal and staying hydrated until you get medical attention.

thats the point, i cant have possibly anything like parasites or infection, me and my husband do always eat the same food, often from the same meal and plate. unless he eats something with wheat that i try to avoid.

how comes i am sick and he is ok?

Sorry you're in this situation. I can't eat much either. Can you find a small amount of safe foods to eat repeatedly just for now? White rice, potatoes, that sort of thing? I can only eat white rice if I soak it for a day (at room temperature) first. Then find one kind of protein you can eat. For me, only tuna is OK. So I make a lot of tuna-rice casseroles! Then I take a multivitamin.

Some people find the GAPS diet or SCD diet works for them. Try googling those or searching this forum.

Then, once you can eat without pain (or at least manageable pain), wait two or three weeks (or longer) and try adding foods back in. You can do it immediately if you really want, of course -- see how you feel. Keep a food diary, yes, absolutely.

Look at the Newbies 101 thread for ideas for probiotics, vitamins, and digestive enzymes. These are all over the counter, so they should be safe if you test them out in small doses. They may help or not as you figure this all out. If they cause pain, stop for a while.

Then -- or sooner, if you can -- you should see a doctor. I don't know how you can do it, but talk to your husband about options. Can he get it through his job and get you covered? You may be able to get a job on your own with insurance, if you need to...I've known people to get a job just for the insurance. But, obviously, big step, and not appropriate for everyone. Plus it takes a while to kick in.

Where are you from? Maybe you could get some food from home and see if that makes a difference?

My suggestion would be to eat only unprocessed foods, because it may be some additives that are causing you some of the problems. And keeping a food diary is probably a good idea too. If you have veggies, make sure they're well-cooked. Also, it may be something like soy or dairy is the culprit, so go a day or 2 or a week without either of those ingredients, then test only 1 of them at a time.

Hope you figure it out soon, having a reaction to everything isn't much fun.

@AmeliaF

thank you for all the information, i def. will google the suggested diets.

i am from germany, rigt now my immigration is in process and its taking forever, thats the reason i cant go to a doc, cant have an insurance or job or even drive a car.. horrible situation, especially now, that i cant eat anything.

i just ate some tuna and energy porridge, dont really know what that is, but hubby said i should try it. i ate two spoons omy hubbys breakfast ( fried sweet potatoes with rurkey bacon) and then two spoons fof pumpkin soup, just pumpkin, salt and pepper.. and my stomach went crazy, after like four hrs it was loud and its simply embarrassing

@ciamarie, i do to 90% eat unprocessed food, since couple of months i didnt eat any at all, well except of bacon this morning. we try to stick with trader joes ( which is using less less pesticides and no hormones in diary and meat) or organic vegies. i have no idea what could cause my misery..

    • Are M&Ms Gluten Free?
      Hi. Thanks for the reply. I read "wheat" on the packaging of the regular / plain M&Ms package. Not on the mini's package. I've never seen a package of mini-M&Ms. I've only seen them as ice cream toppings. I'll buy a pack and photograph what I read. Maybe this would be helpful? Thanks again, Olivia 
    • how long does it take to show signs of being glutened?
      My two year old son has been diagnosed with celiac for almost three months. So far, I think we have done well keeping him completely gluten free. Our biggest worry is cross contamination because he is so young and constantly putting his hands in his mouth. My question is, how long does it take to show signs that he was glutened? He complained of a stomachache yesterday before bed (I wasn't sure at the time if it was just a bedtime stalling technique) and also had two very messy diapers today. I've been racking my brain trying to figure out if he could have gotten glutened somehow, or maybe it's just a normal stomach issue for any kid. It would help if I knew the average time it took for symptoms to show up after someone has been glutened. Thanks!
    • Did Jennifer Esposito Leave Town Amid $43 Million Gluten-Free Bakery Lawsuit?
      Wasn't this some gossip rag nonsense from a few weeks back?  I think it's been proven false.  But, even so, why is celebrity gossip from unreliable sources here?  And I can't leave a comment on the actual article, because he approves and often edits the comment.
    • Recovery?
      Hi PLB, If he hasn't been gluten-free very long, he might still be able to get blood testing done for the gliaden (gluten) antibodies.  More than a couple weeks may be too long tho. As far as recovery, it varies from person to person.  The condition associated with celiac that you are thinking of is probably gluten ataxia.  Gluten ataxia is an antibody attack on the brain cells that can cause problems walking and controlling muscles.  Generally it seems people consider nervous system healing / recovery to be a fairly slow process.  Although it sounds like your husband is experiencing some recovery already, which is great! I've read about coconut having benefits for people with alzhiemers disease, but don't know if it would help him.  I doubt it would hurt though.  The B-vitamins including B-12 are supposed to be very important for nervous system health.  Vitamin d is also important but make sure you take a supplement that is tested and reliable.  Check out https://labdoor.com/  for their review/test results.  Dr. Hadjivassiliou has done some research on gluten ataxia and you might find reading his information helpful. Nuerological symptoms without gastro symptoms
      http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20170845 Dietary treatment of gluten ataxia
      http://jnnp.bmj.com/content/74/9/1221.full Ubo's, Epilepsy And Celiac Testing for celiac disease usually starts with a blood antibody test and then a endoscopy to check for gut damage.  If a person has been off gluten for a while though, the tests are not much use.  The antibodies in the bloodstream start to drop off and may not be detectable anymore.  They usually say to eat gluten for around 12 weeks in that case before trying testing again.  I can understand why he wouldn't want to do that though considering his symptoms.  I am not sure it would be a good idea. Welcome to the forum and congrats on finding  away to improve his condition! If you turn on the notify me of replies slide button near the bottom left of the reply screen you can get an email when you receive responses to your thread. There is some helpful info in this thread about celiac disease.             
    • Genetic Results
      I have been looking for an explanation to what exactly I have, as my doctor just said that I have the genes that cause Celiac. They never went any further than that.... The wikipedia link makes some sense, but at the same time it does not. It almost seems like I have 1 full DQ2, and half of a DQ2?   Test: DQ Alpha 1 - 02:01,03 Test : DQ Beta 1 - 02:02,03:02 DQ Serologic Equivalent: 2,8 Method: Molecular typing of HLA antigens performed using reverse SSOP and/or SSP methods, reported as serological equivalents and low to medium resolution molecular values

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
