Not Feeling Well...

Recommended Posts

Since Saturday, I have not felt well. I had decided to try an idea for a pizza sauce recipe and despite it not turning out like i wanted, my body did not like it one bit (milk, butter and cheese, with a little corn starch and salt and pepper). I normally have no issues with dairy, with the exception of butter (too fatty?). I can drink 3 big glasses of 2% milk with no issues and eat quite a bit of cheese and not have a problem.

 

So from Saturday night to Sunday, I was ill. Nothing too terrible, but I had no energy and my stomach wasn't agreeing.

 

Monday I felt much better and thought I'd cook up some veggie stir-fry (cabbage, carrots, and mushrooms with a sauce made of water, olive oil, corn starch, a little brown sugar, and salt and pepper) along with some rice balls (plain rice).

 

Lets just say last night was not fun (bloating and slightly upset stomach).

 

I'm suspecting the cabbage was behind it.

 

I also need to mention that my room, despite my efforts, gets to 85 degrees almost daily when its hot outside. I have no AC. I also have a feeling that this isn't helping either.

 

Any ideas as to what might be going on?

honestly, i prefer the heat and i very rarely sweat - but, if it gets too hot, i 'wilt' - i have to remind myself to keep hydrated, my stomach feels 'off' - before i went gluten free, i was most likely to get a migraine when i was TOO hot....

 

you don't have a problem with corn, do you?  cornstarch was the only thing in both of your meals that didn't agree with you.  whenever i am trying to find out what i'm having a problem with, i do the food journal thing.  everything that passes my lips goes in the journal.  (once it turned out to be the husband LOLZ mr glutentongue - and i thought all that kissing stuff was just plain nonsense..... )

 

i hope you feel better soon, shadow

Maybe your body is reacting to the dairy now even though you haven't had issues in the past? I'm sorry you feel terrible! I hope you feel better soon.

Well, i have an idea as to what happened. I had my gallbladder removed two years ago. Since then i've been on a pretty low-fat diet (excluding occasional treats and mac and cheese). I have heard (whether or not this is true or not) that once your gallbladder is removed, your body has a harder time digesting fats.

 

I also normally do not use butter in anything I cook or eat.

I can relate.  

 

It could very well be your gallbladder (or lack of).  Many people have problems years after surgery digesting fatty foods (e.g. cousins and aunts/uncles).  I'm pretty fortunate, except that I'm still getting my annual "gallbladder attacks" (nausea, vomiting, fainting, abdominal pain, etc.) which stem from very fatty foods.  I think it has to do with the bile duct going into spasms.  It's just an theory.   My aunt had problems after surgery and went in for a bile stent.  Somehow it moved and she went in for a replacement.  She died  48 hours later (septic) from complications.  I also read that you can develop gallstones and they can get stuck in the bile duct post surgery.

 

I worry that I have the same issues, so I try to avoid fatty foods as much as possible.  I will no longer make fried chicken even if it is gluten free!
