Celiac Patient Symptoms When Gluten Is Consumed

Recommended Posts

Hi, I hope this doesn't seem like a silly question, but I'm waiting to see my GI specialist and I still have no idea what's wrong with me. I'm curious though if one has celiac disease and gluten is consumed do all patients require emergency care or can the symptoms vary?

Based on my previous posts and my symptoms I feel pretty confident I am either celiac on NCGS, but if I consume bread or gluten I don't always have an immediate severe reaction. Sometimes it's brain fog, a headache the following day that last a day or 2, or puffy eyelids the following day. Other times it's severe diarrhea, cramping etc.

Does this make sense?

Makes complete sense.  :) Reactions between celiacs can vary hugely. Some of us have a slow reaction, others feel it quickly, and yet others will not have an obvious reaction until multiple exposures have happened. Some react severely and need days off work whereas others feel nothing or just a bit run down, and some swing between the two extremes.

 

I was an undiagnosed celiac for decades and I never required emergency care except when it kicked off a new life-threatening autoimmune problem. I was able to work and function fine - just without comfort.  LOL

It really is a weird disease! When something as harmless as a donut can cause migraines, arthritis, cognitive problems and stomach issues - it really does make it hard to get a full understanding of what is going on!

 

Best wishes.  :)
