Sheesh, Why Am I Still Having Problems?

21 August 2004 - 09:28 AM

I've been gluten-free for about 3 months now, and I'm still not feeling much better! I feel like my energy level is at 0 most the time! I'm still having stomach problems, menstrual problems, sleeping problems, etc. Could there possibly be something I'm missing that's still getting to me?

Is Lactaid Safe?

I've been still having tummy trouble, and I'm wondering if it's that Lactaid milk I'm drinking. Is that gluten free? Has anyone else had trouble with it?

Still Nauseous?

I've been somewhat gluten/dairy free for a few weeks now, and unfourtunately I had to eat out over the weekened because I had company. I chose things that were as gluten/dairy free as possible, but I'm sure there was still some of it in there. I'm still suffering! I seem to be having stomach problems after every meal wether it contained gluten/dairy or not. Is that normal?

Is This The Gluten/wheat?

12 July 2004 - 03:28 AM

On Saturday night we had company coming, so my family ate out. I foolishly ate croutons, and half of a piece of bread. I was perfectly fine that night (except a few stomach problems)! Yesterday, as we were taking company around we ate out again. I had grilled chicken with BBQ sauce. (it was a BBQ place so everything had BBQ sauce!) It was either eat and risk gluten or starve (and I was SO hungry!). My mom who has Celiac said she was fine! I, on the other had knew immediately after eating the meal, that there was gluten/wheat in it somewhere. I had the usual twinge in my stomach right after I ate it! I was fine until we drove to the beach later. Before we left, all I had was and iced coffe with lactaid milk in it and sugar. I started feeling sick in the car. I got REALLY dizzy! Then as we got the the beach I got nausea, and I started feeling weak/my arms and legs got heavy. As we were walking back from the beach I felt like I could not breath and was going to pass out in the sand! I made it back to the car though, but my hands were shaking like crazy! My face also got really flushed (I felt almost like I had a fever!). I've gotten this several times before now. Is this from the gluten/wheat, or is it from caffiene? I'mjust so confused! My mom just thinks I didn't eat enough, but I ate alot yesterday!

Still Feeling Awful! :(

26 June 2004 - 12:06 PM

I've been gluten free for two days, and I'm still feeling AWFUL! I don't know what to do. I'm sitting here right now (just ate) with a racing heartbeat, and nausea/stomach problems. Here's what I've eaten so far today:


For breakfast:

Tiny half of jimmy dean sausage
1 egg
Some hashbrowns
peanut butter Envirokids Bar (Gluten free)
Orange Juicebox
Mixed fruuit juice
(everything was gluten free as far as I know)

For Lunch:
steak and red peppers
grape juice and starburst
(also gluten-free as far as I know)


Is normal to still feel icky after the first few day? I was told you should feel at least a difference the first few days, but I almost feel worse!
