Need Help With Symptoms!

05 March 2010 - 05:39 PM

Hi all! My name is Rebecca and I found out I had celiac disease about 2 months ago. I was having a good amount of the symptoms: constipation, migraines, dizziness, confusion, hypoglycemia, nausea, fainting spells, seizure like symptoms, etc. The doctors had told me that by six weeks everything will be back to normal. Well six weeks have come and gone and I am feeling worse than ever. I'm not sure if the symptoms I am having are common or not and I'm not sure what to do about them. I get extremely exhausted to the point where I can't get out of bed and after doing minimal tasks throughout the day become even more exhausted. I keep having these chills that hurt almost, I am freezing but my skin is warm or hot. It's a freezing cold that feels like it's coming from my bones and nothing can warm me up. I keep getting these awful pressure headaches that make my vision blurred. I become extremely week throughout the day. I also seem to get lost easily, meaning I can't remember things that I have been talking about at the time or half way through a sentence my thought just seems to stop. I've read that that can be a symptom but I'm not sure about it. The constipation keeps getting worse as well. I also feel like I have gained about 20 lbs. in 5 days. I feel extremely bloated all the time. I have also been having sharp stomach pains and extreme nausea. Sometimes after eating something gluten-free I have a reaction to it as it if was packed with gluten, I get nauseous and feel like I need to throw-up (but I never do because I really do not like throwing up to the point where I will do ANYTHING to not). I also can have these random stabbing pains in my chest. Sort of like the pinched nerve feeling but it's a little different, it's in the right side or left side of my chest and then that whole side including my arm will go numb for a few minutes. I think I have been pretty good at keeping a gluten free diet but I am sure there are more slip-ups than I know of because I still don't know everything 100%. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thank you so much!
