Hi, I woke up last Friday with a horrible headache, this eventually turned into stomach pains, loose stools, nausea, and just generally not feeling well. It seems to come and go. I feel very low energy, tired and weak. I followed up with my GI Dr. since it’s been almost a week and she advised I follow up with my pcp that accidental gluten ingestion wouldn’t cause tiredness, achiness, weakness etc and said perhaps I have an infection. I have only had my diagnosis for 9 months so fairly new. Can celiac cause the fatigue etc after being Glutened? 

Thank you!

-_- Yeah, that is one of the major signs, I mean your body is not absorbing food, B-vitamins, magnesium, iron, etc. are being hampered during a exposure, your dumping your guts out to the porclain gods and not getting what your need from what you eat. Top it off with your immune system is going bonkers in overdrive trying to kill the gluten proteins and attacking your intestines.....why would not NOT feel tired and acky?!

Go to simple foods for now, steamed mushed veggies, soups, stews, I used to love eating rice gruel (congee) either savory or sweet but now eat a nut based porridge when sick. Keep to simple whole foods right now and make it easy on your gut, bone broths and teas help. If you get accidentally glutened they also have a enzyme out now that reduces your symptoms called gliden X that you take right after. There are many other herbal remedies to help with different symptoms so if you want post what your dealing with and get suggestions. Might looking into a B-vitamin complex for awhile to help with energy.

Thank you so much for the reply. Its reassuring to know that it could all be attributed to being glutened. How long does the affects of gluten last? I will try more to stick to simple foods. I will also have to look into gliden X, and the b vitamins for energy. (I am having surgery in a week and a half so I was suppose to stop my multivitamin and a few others until after that) bad timing! I am feeling extremely frustrated that my Dr.s seem to act like they know what they are talking about, but are in fact clueless, or offer little help. Thanks again!

April, you might want to get your B12 levels checked before and after surgery.  Anesthesia can cause a B12 deficiency.  Your body needs lots of B12 to process out the nitrous oxide (laughing gas) given in anesthesia.  Deficiency symptoms may start several weeks afterwards because your body's store of B12 becomes rapidly depleted.  

Many Celiacs develop a B12 deficiency because of the absorption problems we have.

  Here's an article that explains more.

Hope this helps!

I use Liquid Health Stress & Energy and their Neurological Support formula 1tbsp each 3 times a day before a meal for B-vitamins.
My loose stools lasted about about a week this last exposure. Before that exposure it was over 3 weeks? Anyway I had to lower my magnesium levels and try eating stuff like coconut flour and eggs and coconut flour porridge to try to slow it down and regulate it. I think about a month of random neurological issues were present on my issue back in my holiday exposure but this last exposure I took the glidenX and noticed it took 2 days for them to show and they cleared up in a week, found the delay odd but I guess it means the stuff works to some degree.
