Can Anyone Relate To These Symptoms After Eating Gluten On The gluten-free Diet

14 October 2013 - 05:36 AM

Just wondering if anyone recognises these symptoms after being gluttened when on a gluten-free diet.


I do get more symptoms but just want to focus on a few to see if they are typical of gluten etc. Thanks for any help in understanding this in advance.


OK i had three weeks off and then ate a mcdonalds burger which is very bad I know but I am still kinda not 100% convinced that it is gluten hence the experimentation.


OK these are the symptoms after Gluten that not had for a few weeks.


A very sharp stabbing pain in the lower right of the stomach a few inches below the belly button, only lasts a matter of seconds and comes in waves, as soon as i take ibroprufen it dissapears as fast as it came, there is usually a second and sometimes a third wave and then it seems to go completely. It is a very nasty pain that makes me yelp like someone is turning jagged glass inside your stomach or a shabbing sensation, like a say it last literally seconds at a time.


The next thing is a really foggy head, feels like in a dream state and been drinking and have a hangover and feel dehydrated.


And finally I get really bad wind, and my farts smell like rotten eggs, really disgusting smell that can clear a room like the fart bombs they used to sell at joke shops.


Does this sound familiar and has anyone else had this or do people think it could be something else.


I also have other symptoms but wanted to focus on these as they are the main things, also dandruff constant and headaches, tiredness etc.


Thanks Mark



Could This Be Celiac - Long List Of Symptoms - Please Help

16 April 2013 - 02:36 AM

I have have a lifetime of problems, I very rarerly get ill with colds etc but have had problems since being a kid that have very badly effected every aspect of my life, and because of my symptoms I cannot hold down a job or enjoy life.  I was wondering if anyone can relate to any of this?


As a child I had slow thought processes and not able to think quickly, it was as if in a dream state most of the time, I had a very sweet tooth and eat a large amount of sugar. I was always very sad and depressed and anxious as a child with low energy levels etc.


As a teenager I started to drink beer quite alot and my symptoms as a teenager were like as a child but worse, I started to get a permanent block nose, sinus issue and smelly solid lumps of Catarrh that used to come into my mouth. I used to binge drink to get away from the sadness i felt but when i look back now i think this was making me worse.


My symptoms as an adult are as follows, I will put the most common in list one and others that are not as regular in list two.


List one

Slow speed of thought

feeling confused and unable to make decisions

feeling of impending doom, like something bad will happen

Always tired

Slow movement and actions

Foggy or muggy headed unable to think clearly

Always had Bloated stomach (thin frame as a kid but stomach distension)

Always burping or wind after eating

wake up every morning like i have a hangover (but no longer drink alcohol for past few years)

Fullness in ears which effects hearing

acidic eye fluid

large floaters in eyes that move around

unmotivated and depressed

very anxious and tension in body

loose stools but not diaorhea

roscea on skin top arms and top legs

very dry skin and brittle hair

the inside of nose is often very dry and i have urges to pick nose as uncomfortable

constant craving for sugar

Dehydrated all the time which is very hard to stop not matter how much fluids i drink



list two

Strange brain zaps - like an electric shock inside head that lasts seconds but is scary

feeling like someone is glasping the top of head pressure

pins and needles in feet and hands

sharp pain lower right hand side of stomach - stabbing pain

tension in shoulders etc


I have had all sorts of test done and nothing has been found. I did a home finger prick test for celiac and it came back negative.


The reasons why I think possible celiac.


I have had periods in my life where i have eaten no food due to illness and I have felt much better in myself. My grandfather had an intolerance to wheat and another relative has similar symptoms to me.


Thank you for any help in advance, it would help me greatly if someone could relate to all this and give me some advice.
