Sorry if this is to much info. About 2 years after the birth of my daughter I was still having a nipple discharge (I never breastfed). I just kept figuring it would stop sooner of later. Eventually I was sent to an endocrinologist, my prolactin levels were not high yet I still had a discharge. Looking back there were other sypmtoms as well, headaches, sinus / allergy type issues, fatigue, joint pain). Anyway I recently finished all my testing. It was about a month between my endoscopy and my follow up appt for my results. I went gluten free for that time (for the most part, maybe a slice of pizza on the week end or so). At my follow up I was told results were negative. I spen the last week eating gluten products and I am realizing that I am paying the price with how I feel! I know a lot of people have neurological issues. Is this something that could be connected to a gluten problem? Anyone else have a pituitary gland problem?
I am beging to suspect Iay have a fructose intolerance. Had my biopsy a couple weeks ago (no follow up appt yet). Since the biopsy I have for the most part cut out gluten. I tried to have a pretzel the other day and I got an instant headache. I have also mostly cut all meat and dairy. Had my gallbladder out a couple of months ago, so it hard to tell what's working and what's not. Anyway, I do eat a ton of fruit. My weight is down lower that it's been in a long time, but I look pregnant! This is leading to the fructose suspicion. Does anyone have any input here? IfI cut out friut, I don't have a whole lot left to eat!
Does anyone else get an immediate headache after consuming gluten? Almost a sinus type of headache as well as a tension type, up the back the and into shoulders? I struggled with these for years, I can now relate it to an almost immediate reaction to gluten. Is it normal to feel symptoms so fast? Would that be more of an allergy problem vs. a celiac problem?
Does anyone know where I can find info on prescription medication? After my endo I stopped taking all meds. Yesterday, I couldn't take it anymore and had to take my allergy med. I also had to start provera yesterday (period problem which I am also hoping will regulate once gluten free for a while) Anyway, I now seem to have a sore throat, (almost a swollen fleeing) that I can't shake. Not sure if it's due to all the pollen or something in one of the medications I took. Is there anywhere online that I can find ingredients info?
This is my 4th day officially gluten free. (Biopsy was Monday, no word yet) I already know I have some form of intolerance because I had surgery to have my gallbladder removed in April. After surgery it was a few days of no appetite and as I started to eat again "symptoms" (mainly headaches) that I struggled with for years I was able to link with the food I was eating. I opted for the endo because the surgeon wanted me to see a gi to have a colonoscopy done anyway. I figured if the GI doc was going to do one he could do both, which was why I went back to full gluten. My question is, the first 2 days weren't so bad. Yesterday and today I seemed to feel ok until about late afternoon a terrible sinus like headache hit. How long does this "withdraw" stage I've been reading about last?
