Close To 2 Years Gluten Free And Still Bad Weeks?

03 July 2014 - 06:23 PM

Hi all my Celiac friends .......... I need you all!  Ive been close to 2 years strick gluten free diet, after being diagnosed finally after well most of my life, lets say 25 plus years..For my 1year colonoscopy my Gastro told me my Villi was completely healed....I was so happy!!!! ...anyways, I was also told I have IBS and my intestines spaz a lot, causing my D or urgency to go.  For close to a month now, Ive had good days and well bad days, lots of D, stomach pain, achy legs, feeling run down ...... and the cycle continues ......... this week has been hell, cramping with anything I eat, D, water D as well,  achy legs, and a dull fever ......... I have been driving myself crazy thinking if I have been glutened, stress causing my ibs to be real annoying and feeling that maybe a gluten free diet wont help, to be honest I am scared. I did figure out my cat's food has Brewers yeast (GLUTEN) could I be that sensitive?  and no I am not eating it!!  :P  Having Celiac disease for me at times feels very lonley ... so many questions and not a lot of answers ......... Please help!! :unsure:


Bloating, Cramps, Diarreha Still ..................... Attractive!

31 July 2013 - 01:27 PM

I have been gluten free for 9 months!  1 year scope coming September and cant wait to see if I am healing................ After close to 30 years of being ill and low weight. Finally told I have Celiac and I am not crazy!  I am 5'4" and hanging on to 112............ I know I am very careful, not gluten in my home, all makeup, soaps, shampoos I try my hardest to be gluten free.  But I need to know please, is it "nornal" to still have days of diarrhea? bloating like I am pregnant even after a glass of water at times?  My GI also told me I have IBS, along with most of the world.....when I stress or anxious the same day or a day or two later I will have diarrhea......could very well be my nerves.   I do have to say that I am most definitely a lot better then I was 9 months ago, and my husband reminds me of that when I start to feel low about the days I have diarrhea and bloating or cramps.....it always seems to come in waves ........ feel good......great.....then days when I need an imodium and no matter what I eat I have diarreha!!    Does anyone else understand or going through this?  I mean I can have quinoa for breakfast, green tea then cramp and gotta poop.......weird!   It makes me worry and scared that I am not getting better or I am slowly dying.....sounds dramatic but somethimes thats how I feel.    Please help ........ anyone? :(   thanks!


Unable To Gain Weight!

11 July 2013 - 01:22 PM

I have been on a strick gluten free for almost a year now.  After close to 30 years of being sick I was willing to do anything to get my life back..My 1 year scope is this September and I am looking forward to hearing I am healing and on the right track.....(fingers crossed) but I am having a difficult time gaining weight.  I am 5'4" and 112 - I can go down a few pounds or up but rarely up.  Does anyone else have this problem?  I would really like to put some weight on, and I have read that you should start after going gluten free but it seems that I cant!  It does worry me a little ............... can anyone help or share? :mellow:
