Thanks for the replies. Went to the dr twice, still no answer. Not kidney or gallbladder related, he was thinking appendix or gastro. In any event, the pain and nausea were gone when I woke up this morning. I'm stumped. Maybe a 4 day bug? Guess I'll never know.
Thanks again for replying, it was only after reading your theories that I made the doctor look into kidneys, gallbladder etc. I really hate paying $70 to be told "just leave it a few more days and see how you are then". I'm far too inpatient and hate being sick!
The only symptom I had was iron deficiency anaemia. I've never had any GI troubles, skin issues, nothing. I was diagnosed following a biopsy about 2 weeks ago. Since going gluten free, I feel much worse. Im more tired than I was before (which I never thought possible), I'm cranky, irritable and just generally feel unwell. I have trouble getting going of a morning, whereas before I went gluten free I was up at 3:45am everyday to run/gym. I'm lucky if I exercise 4 times a week now.
Things better improve. This is going to be very hard to stick to if I dont start feeling better, given I had no symptoms before.
Sorry for the whinge. Just having a particularly bad day with this today.
Thanks for the replies. Thats really good advice, both of you.
I guess the problem is, I dont get any symptoms, so have no way of knowing if I've been glutened. The only reason I was tested for coeliac disease was because I've been anaemic for a decade and the doctors could never figure out why.
I'll have a chat to the coeliac society in my state and see if they have any recommendations.
Breakfast - gluten-free muesli with soy milk OR 2 pieces gluten-free toast with peanut butter and honey
Lunch - Quinoa salad with chickpeas
Dinner - Chicken and veggies/salad (or sometimes fish - I dont eat red meat, just chicken and fish).
Snacks are fruit generally. I have seen a lot of gluten-free snacks, like chip-type things, etc. But have been told to keep it pretty simple to start (diagnosed less than a week ago). I also dont eat nuts, so I'm limited in what I can snack on.
Am I eating enough protein? I dont really know alot about that sort of thing..
