Well.... This Is Weird...

5 posts in this topic

As you guys know, i've been sick with a virus/flu whatever you wanna call it.

Well today, i decided to eat an apple (bought at the food place on campus, i then washed it like mad) with peanutbutter and honey. I'm all good and fine with that. Then i decided to drink one of the little milk cartons i picked up with it. yeah... not such a good idea.

I should mention right now i ate some sweet potato last night and well, lets say, it didn't turn out well (bad belly ache). I was fine with the rice and a little butter that i had with it (ate that again this morning, no issue, without the butter).

I just got hit with a major "D" type bathroom trip. Yet, for the past two days i've had major "C" (normal after i have a day or two of "D"). It had undigested sweet potato in it as well.

So, whats going on? Is it the sweet potato? The virus/flu? Something else?

Too hard to tell. New dairy problem, glutening instead of the flu, the flu is worse, the milk carton had gluten on it, etc.

I would say that if you had a stomach virus, your guts are messed up. Those things can get you off whack for awhile. I make the boys eat yogurt ( probiotic) for a few days until it evens out.

You're probably not over the flu/stomach bug yet.

Dairy Milk ? Uh, maybe.... not yet. Milk with lactose and honey with fructose and your gut just said, not happy with that. Can you do yogurt, to replenish your gut bacteria, after giving it a rest ?

I was couchbound with some sort of virus over Christmas, fortunately never got sick to my stomach/gut because my instincts are to not eat anything weird when that happens, but it totally zapped me out of all energy for 4 days. I just told my over hyped immune system to "sic it" and it progressed really quickly. I could tell it was a virus because of how I felt the day before it started.... unusually flexible, to the point where I noticed it when exercising easily, which means my immune system is prepping up to go after a foreign invader, instead of my joints. Then, the next day, I started to ache a little, got dizzy, and started to sniffle and then it went to my inner ears :ph34r: and I thought, oh well, glad I didn't have anything really planned for the holidays. For the New Year's thing I just took a bottle of my own low sugar agave sweetened soda and a baggie of nuts to munch on. Everybody thinks I have self control - yeah, but combine my known sensitivities with the fear of a latent flu reaction, and you have MOTIVATION. :lol:

    • Hi, I've never been on a forum before but thought I might find some answers here.  I have never been tested for celiac but a nurse practitioner I saw a few years ago told me she thought I would benefit from a gluten free diet.  At first, I thought I could never do this but after some encouragement I did try.  I did feel much better after going gluten free.  She never tested me for celiac. I turned 50 years old last year and I had a colonoscopy for the first time and had three polyps removed.  The surgeon said that my colon looked like I was a chronic laxative user.  I haven't used a laxative for a very long time.  I was at the time drinking a natural tea to help me to have bowel movements.  Before starting the tea I had always had difficulty with bowel movements and never had them once a day but with the tea I was able to go once a day. At the end of last month I developed severe pain after I would eat (I had my gallbladder removed at the age of 19).  One night the pain got so bad my husband had to drive me to the ER.  My liver functions were high as well as a few other things.  They did a CT scan of my abdomen and pelvis that showed wall thickening of my transverse colon and minimal irregularity involving the transverse colon.  My descending and sigmoid colon were collapsed.  There were a few tiny mesenteric lymph nodes present on the right.  They diagnosed me officially with colitis but said that most likely I had a gallstone (even though I don't have a gallbladder) that had come from the liver and had gotten stuck in the common bile duct (it did not show up on the CT scan).  I usually have a high ferritin level too.  I've been home from the hospital stay for about a month now and still have tenderness in the epigastric area. Some of this may not have anything to do with celiac but was wondering if anyone has been diagnosed with celiac by CT scan or colonoscopy or if anyone has had the same problems that I have had and found out what has caused it.  I cannot see the gastroenterologist who saw me in the hospital for a couple of months.  Can you have celiac and not have diarrhea as I am just the opposite? Any help would be appreciated!  Thanks!  
    • I had an acne flair up after going gluten free but it ended up improving and some long-term back acne I had been dealing with actually went away.  I think going gluten free was a shock to my system and at first I actually felt worse but after about a month things got better. 
    • Ok guys!   The original post was 3 years ago!  Ingredients, manufacturing methods,  labeling, etc.  may have changed during that time.  A lot of companies have really come a long way on gluten-free in the last 3-4 years.
    • They didn't suggest any probiotic support. Ultimately the side-effects of this drug stabilized approaching the end of the course of treatment, though after it was finished, I was perhaps a bit improved, but no profound symptom resolution for me. Darn! The search goes on.
    • Thankyou I have found that I became intolerant of dairy and having cut it out feeling better but if I come into accidental consumption the symptoms are similar to that of gluten but not as severe .. Patience ay ?
