Okay Curious Anyone Feel Sicker In The Summer

Recommended Posts

I work outside a lot in the Summer as a Garden Center cashier. I live in TN and it gets hot and humid. Before going gluten-free the Summer almost killed me.  Now I've noticed this Spring when I go on break or Lunch from garden, when I come back I'm very sick to my stomach. Right now I feel particularly ill and I'm not sure if it's PMDD, Cross Contamination, or Tension. My head has been feeling progressively worse since about 1. It is almost 3 here and I go to work in my steaming hot Garden Center at 4. Feeling sick to my stomach now and trying to drink some tea to flush my system. (Which will be very bad when I get to work as I'll be very far from the restroom) I think today at least I may have to beg my supervisor to keep me inside and send someone else out. :wacko: Do any of you feel worse when out in the humidity?

If I am already having some issues before going out in the heat it makes it worse. It's almost unbearable :-/ sorry you feel bad, hope you recover quickly.

Humidity used to make me feel weak and shaky and sick. I don't think it was celiac related because I never had bad digestive symptoms from celiac anyway. But sometimes on a really humid day I would be so sick to my stomach I had to go home from work and kneel before the "porceline god".

 

Now that I live here in the West, I never have that problem, although I think it's funny - when I lived on the East Coast, if I could get my A/C to bring the humidity down to 40%, I felt so good. Now here, if it gets UP to 40% I complain that it is muggy!

I definitely have trouble with humidity. It's a bit better since going off dairy and soy, but it can mean sinus headaches, balance problems, nausea, not fun. I'm not looking forward to the summer, when it gets so stuffy that I basically haul myself between home-subway-work and try not to pass out.

 

I'd recommend drinking lots and lots of water, keeping your vitamin levels up, etc. It could partially be dehydration. Ginger might help your stomach.

Hope you make it through the day!

Thank you everyone! I'm glad it's not just me but sorry it happens to you too.

 

My wonderful co-workers let me stay inside. I drank a lot of tea before I went to work and um.... I'm thinking I did something wrong there. I actually had a little bit of a panic attack. I had taken 2 Advil just before I drank the tea. The Tea was a mix of fresh Meadow Sweet, Black Haw Bark, Dandelion, Chamomile and Bigelow Mint tea. Wondering if that was what caused the mild panic attack.

 

I have felt oppressively like things are not right with my health just over the past week or so. Maybe I'm just over stressed. My mom's health is not good right now. I'm hoping tomorrow to talk her D.O. into running the Blood test for Celiac. I think my mother is the poster child for Celiac and in the past year she has been making up for me not eating Gluten by eating as much of my favorite gluten laden foods as she can.  She is getting weaker and weaker. The Oncologist (they found a very small cancer in early March) today told her he thinks she might have Myastenia Gravis (it's an autoimmune disorder and we all know Celiacs are prone to develop other autoimmune disorders).

So I'm getting worried something is really not right with my health. I had gone on a great vacation and felt fine the entire time. We left town on a 14 hour drive Thursday. The drive back Sunday I was tired but that seemed normal. Got back home 4am Monday (2 weeks ago this coming Monday). Since then I have felt like something is off. Had that nausea at work I wrote about at the start of this tread. I was exhausted at work Thursday a week ago and did something very awkward, I ran my foot over with a 16 foot rolling ladder. My pinky toe is broke and still hurts today, in fact it hurt worse yesterday than any day before. I had the panic attack I mentioned above last Sunday. I started my period Wed (I have PMDD), yesterday I had some very quick large quanity blood loss. Last night I had the "brilliant" idea to have a little drink to kill the pain. Today I feel really lousy. (I acknowledge that could be partially because of the Rum or maybe even gluten in the Rum though I thought this brand was accepted as safe). I had a case of diahria for the second morning in a row, this happens a lot during my period but the weird thing is it smelled sweet. I am most concerned that I have felt off for over a week now. Right now I feel sick to my stomach , depressed, and my head isn't exactly hurting but it isn't exactly not.   I'm wondering if I might have a serious vitamin deficiency, could be becoming diabetic (it runs in my family, in fact on my mothers side she and all of her siblings and several of my cousins are type 2 my brother is type 1) or something else. Should I get my rear to a Dr or should I assume this is just PMDD, or maybe gluten sneaking in somewhere? I am profoundly not happy right now. I don't really like the idea of going to the Dr especially as I have no insurance of any kind and no money to pay for anything other than just an office visit.

I wouldn't run to the dr just yet, there's a lot of things at play here all which would cause some effects by themselves.I think you should just be careful and take care of yourself if things don't improve in a week or two then make a dr appt. long trips are exgausting, any pain and definitely a broken bone add stress and discomfort, PMS can make you feel lousy and periods are worse, plus you glutened yourself that effects me for a at least a week.

It could be that you did get into something you shouldn't have during your vacation, and it didn't hit you until you got back. Could be the acumulation of possible CC, bad PMDD/period, the weather, stress, etc etc. Now, if you broke your toe I hope you got that checked out. But like Brandiwine said, don't run to the doctor just yet. Take care of yourself for a couple weeks, or even a month, and see how you're doing then.

 

I had a horrible time right after the xmas holiday this year, after at least one known glutening. I was so sick! It took me over a month of not eating anything that didn't come from my own kitchen to really feel back to "normal", and I also get bad anxiety with CC.

 

So, take a breath, get your toe looked at, make some ginger tea, and chill. You'll hopefully be ok.

 

hugs

I feel much better today I think the unseen factor was there was a storm coming in. I still get Migraines sometimes when I have multiple triggers hit at once. This time being PMDD and Barometric pressure drop from the storm system. Doesn't explain the events earlier in the week but it does explain why I was feeling so terrible on the 7th. Time to breathe and not panic.  Thank you Brandiwine and Pegleg84.
