Hey there!!!

I have a question re BM'S....

Or a lack of....

My stomach completly just doesn't work....

I can't even say i'm constipated....

I just don't need to go!!!

I usually just wait 3 or 4 days as long as I can and then just take something to get rid of it... cause I eat meals regularly and its not right that it just sit in there.... I feel terrible and exausted all the time and this lack of digestion is probably why... I also have this build up of air in my stomach and when ever I take a deep breath I can feel it shooting out.... its begining to bother me and my breathing.....

I read on the net that this sort of thing caused blood sugar problems which would explain the hypoglycemic attacks I have all the time.....

I have an appointment on the 11th with an allergist and hopefully he can help

however does anyone have any advice for me

thanks

if it's bothering your breathing, please call the doctor back and try to bump up the emergency. not going for three or four days isn't necessarily a problem, particularly if you're eating very low-residue foods (no fiber, mostly meat, etc.), but if it's causing additional problems, you're starting to get into the "should seek immediate attention" area. I wouldn't say emergency room yet - but if you start feeling very sick, experience almost any sudden, significant major change, or the like, it might then be time for that. please try to get that appointment moved up, or see your regular doctor before then.

Hey,

If I don't take somthing I never go....

I can only ususally wait 3 or 4 days before I feel really crappy and give in and take something...

the problem with my breathing is the build up of air pushing....

They wont move my appt up thats the date that the guy comes to town...

The doctors are convinced that its still anxiety....

They don't even listen to me anymore....

I'm really hoping that this guy is going to help I know him actually I use to work in the office that he comes to....

so I think he's my best bet.....

Wow girl...sounds like you are really getting 'backed up'...not to be gross! I think that is a big problem. I was similar before going gluten-free...and I am a firm believer that not going daily for most people is an issue--sign of poor health or a problem going on. I did not feel well when I was in that state--and I didn't really even notice it till I did begin going on a regular basis. For me there are several factors that cause constipation--not being gluten-free completely, consuming dairy and lack of fiber. So, being gluten-free/cf, consuming fiber like beans, brown rice etc, plenty of water and psyllium on occasion keep me moving along. Not going regularly, and having your intestines packed full all of the time is not good. Also, being on a cycle of laxatives, natural or synthetic, is very unhealthy too--eventually, it can lead to a dependence on them and only exacerbate the problem. What do you take for relief, as you mentioned? Ever tried psyllium?

Hi Jen

i've never heard of that I usually just take a correctal.....

It was the allergists wife that said an intolerance and allergy were the same thing....

When I see him I hope he says different becasue I didn't think they were the same thing....

for the last week i've cut out all gluten again.....

I hope this doesn't create a problem for any testing he wants to do....

my appt is in 2 weeks

Dani--

I strongly encourage you to stay away from the correctol. As I mentioned, taking laxatives that frequently will only mess you up more. Psyllium is natural fiber...not synthetic and it doesn't create dependency or side effects like a drug/laxative would. Psyllium bulks up stools and carries them out. I would start taking it immediately, and stick with 100% gluten-free. What exactly are you hoping to learn from the allergist? If it is food intolerances, I would probably do a great plains or york labs. Great Plains I know will do both IgG an IgE testing. I want you to get better girl!
