Flu Or Something Else?

10 posts in this topic

So i woke up this morning and went about my morning routine. I did a few things before i had breakfast, just to get them out of the way. Then i made my way into the kitchen when it started.

I got a full frontal (from my arm pits down to the lower part of my gut) cramps. Now, i need to mention that my cycle started yesterday, but this is far beyond what that normally does. It felt so bad i had to go curl up in a ball on the couch. It kinda hurt to breathe as well. It eventually let up enough for me to go get a plate out of the cabnit before it hit again. Back to the couch i go. Once it let up i was able to eat something very starchy (left over coffee cake, something that is easy enough to grab) and it tried to go for a third time while i was eating (not as bad as the first two but still bad).

I layed there for quite some time before i decided to make an appointment to get seen at the health center.

This pain reminded me of when i had my gallbladder still, the intensity and everything. My stool has been quite loose since and has some undigested material in it (apples?), which is very weird for me. No fever yet, but i feel like i've been hit by a truck.

I thought it was my GERD throwing a fit because i hadn't eaten, but i don't think so now. What do you guys think?

Not that i'm aware of. My kitchen is my gluten-free zone and i don't eat outside of it.

I should also mention i'm generally around a lot of people during the week due to classes :unsure:

I just read an article in my local paper about the flu. People have been getting really sick this year from it. Since you don't think you have been glutened, I bet you picked up a bug! UGH...Hang in there and feel better. Make sure that you drink enough so that you dont get dehydrated.

Hey shadow, hope you feel better soon.

The thing I had struck the start of my period too, and had me in bed 36 hours. Now I don't know if it was bad case of monthly, cc or a bug. I helped in my son's school the day before so my money is on bug.

Can't help much, but sending sympathy and virtual starchy foods :).

I just saw you aren't feeling well. Yuck. I hope it passes soon.

I wanted to mention that I've had something like this lately too. For a few weeks I felt a bit "carsick"/motion sick thay gave a odd pressure behind my face. That went away and I started getting bad stomach cramps. It was the old raw gut feeling, along with cold chills, that I used to get when glutened but I haven't changed my diet. After a couple of weeks it's starting to go but when a bm is approaching it happens all over again... Definitely a strange virus because I don't feel particularly sick.

Anyway, I hope you start to feel well this weekend.

    • First, do you have celiac disease?  Have you recently had a celiac antibodies follow-up blood test panel to see if gluten has been actually getting into your diet by accident or through cross contamination?  If you haven't had the test, you should ask your doctor for one.  You could also also ask for a follow-up endoscopy to see if you intestines have truly healed.  This will rule out if gluten is really the problem.    If you don't have celiac, I assume you have Non-celiac gluten Intolerance because no one would stick to the gluten-free diet for six years unless you have had reductions in symptoms.  There is no test for NCGI unfortunately.  So, it is hard to say if gluten has been sneaking into your diet.  You really are going to have to try to figure out if you are getting gluten into your diet.  If gluten is not the problem, then your doctor needs to check you for other issues, like SIBO. There is a test to check for SIBO.  Has this been done?   Once a celiac, always a celiac.  There is no cure for celiac disease except to remain on a gluten free diet for life.  I am not sure about NCGI.  Not much research has been done.  Maybe others can chime in?    
    • I am so confused right now.... 6 years ago I went on gluten free diet... after being on it for the first yr I was 100%better up until 5 months ago in got the "flu" the doctors told me to cut out dairy sonic did and my diarrhea  became better but not completely gone would not have it every day tho. I went to the gi doctor and they said to cut out fructose and dairy and keep gluten out... yesterday I went to the dietitian to see what I can eat and she gave me the list for fructose... she said it should have been on a antibiotic for sibo.... eventually I will be able to add dairy back and maybe gluten.... I said how can I add gluten back when this was my first problem... she goes well through fructose goes hand in hand with it... I said with gluten I vomit and am sick for weeks.... fructose isn't that bad I vomit sometimes but I'm not sick for weeks.... I'm just confused on really what is going on and was wondering if you or someone you know had sibo from gluten and or fructose and how Is this all related?
    • I see no one has responded to your query.  Unfortunately I have yet to try making a pie crust.  It was something I never mastered before going gluten free.  Have you looked on Pinterest?  You might find something there.
    • I honestly feel like both doctors think it's all in my head even though there is proof.  Yeah there was a point when I felt crazy.  That was when I was being shuffled from dr to dr being given individual diagnoses of my problems.  None of those diagnoses ever made me get better.  Seriously I was diagnosed with heart palpitations, neurocardiogenic syncope, I was given a butt load of steroids because a dr felt like I was producing too much adrenaline, freaking had a few tell me I was depressed, and the good ol IBS.  It seemed most wanted to push pills.  It's all just ridiculous!
    • I can't believe your doctors!!! You have a daughter who is dx'd already! Yet the ped doesn't want to test your other kids unless you have a dx????!!! Are you kidding me???!!! That's absurd!!! They have a first degree relative who has been dx'd with celiac already. There is no need to wait to see what you turn out to be!! And then, and then, and then....don't even get me started on your doctor!!! Does he have brain damage? Oh this is insane & ridiculous!  I have never heard of a disease that doctors are so unwilling to consider or test for OR to diagnose as this one! Usually they are hot to trot to make a dx but say the word celiac & they shake in their boots. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
