Newbie Here - Plenty Of Problems
0

3 posts in this topic

Hi everybody,

Im 22 year old male from Australia and have been having problems with my stomach for about 8 years! Over the past 18 months things have goten worse and I have developed new intolerances which I don't think fit into the Celiac folder,

I'm finally getting tested for Celiac disease after years of pain, so hopefully I will have a diagnosis I can deal with! The last few docs have said Irritable Bowel or "I don't know, you must have had a bug" Very frustrating, I'm sure you have all had similar experiences.

Very recently (promoting my trip to the doc today) I have been experiencing a severe lack of energy, I've been getting out of breath just getting out of bed or walking up the stairs. then my heart races for a few mins.

My intolerances include

Wheat

Flour

Dairy

Eggs

Red Meat (in large enough doses eg. a steak)

Rice - both white and brown

Anything deep fried or oily

When I eat enough of any of these foods I get bloated, stomach pains, occasionally diarrhea and sometimes a red patchy rash on my hands and arms.

I'd really appreciate any advice or help you could give me!

Thanks for your time.

Donovan.

Omg, you sound like me, except Im female and 24. Im just now getting to my new doctor(who listens) to see if he can run some blood work. In the past when I went(17yo), they treated me like I was a hypochondriac! I felt SO belittled that I never went back. One doctor did want to diagnose me with Fibromyalgia(20yo), but because I didn't want to take the antidepressants that she wanted to prescribe me, she said that I didn't want to receive treatment!!! It's very aggravating to be so young and to be treated like that. I feel like I've been suffering my whole life. I can't get to the doctors until the 22nd, so for now Im just hanging in there. Im also going to do some testing from enterolab to see if I have any other intolerances/allergies other than gluten as well, so I can eliminate those as well when I change my diet. Maybe you should check that out?(enterolab.com) I too get the most annoying itchy skin ever, with little bumps and blister like pimples(only a couple random ones on my body) and it's after I've had glutenous foods. Beer REALLY makes my skin flare up head to toe-but it burns for a few days and then gets itchy. I also get very winded...going up the stairs, getting up from a sitting/laying position, standing too long...my heart races and I have to catch my breath. Im not sure if it's related either. I hope you feel better and start finding answers soon too!! :)

I recall having problems making it up the stairs at seemingly random times. I also had total lack of energy. I was deficient in many nutrients. Carefully selected supplements, recommended by my chiropractor helped me with those problems. I think that celiac was a main root of my malabsorption and poor health.

I hope you will find some answers and fast. What you are going through isn't the funnest! Get well.

Diana

      Update: I am about at my wit's end. I won't be able to see my new doctor until July 17 to get a referral to a GI doctor, so I continue to eat gluten and the effects continue to worsen. Today my boss, whom I have been working with for 12 years, and I had a meeting where he said he's noticed a change in many things, such as speech, not articulating well, forgetfulness, and other things that are affecting my work product. I finally told him I know there is something wrong with me medically and I've been trying to get to the doctor to no avail. I recall those four weeks early in the year when I tried out gluten free and was beginning to feel much better- more present, more sharp, and then went back on gluten in preparation for the blood test.  I just don't think I can do this gluten thing any longer and am thinking of going cold-turkey gluten free.  I'm 54 years old, am beginning not to care about a diagnosis because I just want to feel better and be able to do what I need to do. Because of how I felt going off of gluten earlier in the year, and eating gluten free when I was on the McDougall plan years ago, and how I feel while doing this gluten challenge, I am pretty convinced that my issue is gluten.  Any words of encouragement would be welcome.  If you've done gluten free and never looked back, tell me about it.

      "I got this vaccination in 2009 when I was 20 and it completely altered my life. Made my celiac disease so much worse, sleep 15-18 hours a day, SIBO, it has completely altered my life since getting this vaccination. My doctor has two twin girls about my age and they both have digestion problems after receiving gardasil Thank you I have a young daughter and have wondered this exact question posed by the poster and your response has given me great pause about this issue which may come up in years to come. I am sorry to hear this wreak havoc on your life, but simultaneously thank you for sharing this detail to help those of us that have likely been decades misdiagnosed celiacs now raising children. Thank you.
    • Gluten does WHAT to the brain?
      "Wondering what kind of life my brother could have had - if  he had celiac - constantly haunts me" My sympathies that is just tragic, as this story is.  I hope you are at peace knowing you are aware of your celiac and help so many lost, scared, and confused celiacs here. It can never bring back your brother but I hope it can give soften some of what you feel that was/is beyond your control. His suffering and your loss has made you a better advocate to yourself and in your work helping us. I don't like my body or my  brain on gluten either. I do fear that people overlook the toll inflammation takes on the brain. It likely may explain decades of mental illness that was brain based inflammation unknown until changes in technology advancement catch up. However consuming gluten to study how one enters psychosis may not be the best method. Do no harm.

      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.
