Question On Symptoms

Recommended Posts

So, I have been diagnosed but have been experiencing some strange side effects. And I wanted to see if anyone could relate and maybe offer suggestions on how to alleviate such symptoms.

 

I have been gluten free for 3 weeks now. (At least trying to be. I'm a little more keen on CC now.) I had a pretty bad reaction to what I think was corn pasta the other night but otherwise the symptoms have just been fatigue and nausea.

 

But I have been getting pressure/pulsating feeling on the left side of my head. It's more notable when I lift something heavy or lay on it. It doesn't happen all the time.  Of course it worried me, but urgent care didn't seem to be up in arms about it. I can't get into my doctor and my specialist date is on the 23rd. It's quite worrisome to be so uncertain.  Anyway, so this feeling is funny. Almost like that feeling you get when you turn your head and your neck pops. Occasionally this will lead to intense fatigue and nausea. My arms feel week. My stomach hurts. I am just really wiped out. I feel like I could eat for days but I'm not really hungry (unsure how to really articulate this feeling). 

 

Is this normal for recovery? Or is it more likely that I am being CC or something completely different? If this is normal how do you alleviate such symptoms? Just ride the storm out? 

 

Thanks for your advice.

Maybe your sugar is dropping on you.  Check to see if eating some fruit when this happens, even if not hungry, resolves the issue. My hunch is that this is what is happening.  When you adjust your diet, your body needs to adjust to the change.  

 

Good luck with this.

Thanks, I will check that out. I've been trying to be vigilant about sugar intake. Most of the gluten free products I have been finding have a lot of sugar. Maybe I'll go get a blood sugar tester this evening. I have been meaning to do that anyway.

 

Thanks for taking the time out to respond to me. It's vastly appreciated.

Gluten free products usually have a lot more sugar than there gluten equivalents.   You may have inadvertently been eating more sugar then you think, then dropping.  You should try and eat more whole foods rather than just substituting.   This will also help you heal quicker.  

 

Hope this works out for you, we are always here for help.
