hi, guys! ok, now that i've heard from you on the running into stuff ;) the next thing i'm a tad concerned about is nausea. i'm completely gluten-free, in fact, i'd practically stake my life on the fact that no gluten is getting in. i've checked all cosmetics and i've only been eating stuff i know is ok. i don't smoke, and the nausea happens both when i'm on my period and off it (sorry for the graphicness!). that's all the factors i can think of... oh, and i avoid lactose and i have no gastro stuff going on.

one of my chief symptoms that led me to go to the dr. back in May was extreme nausea. it's no longer extreme, and i'm not too worried -- but if i thought about it, most of the time, i could be nauseated. i try to distract myself from thinking about it, though. it was actually pretty bad for about 3 days before Christmas, so i took Phenergan once or however you spell it, but it knocks me out so it's really not an option unless i just can't handle it. and now the feeling is just kind of hanging around... for example, i gag if i brush my tongue when i'm brushing my teeth, even without really putting the brush back there. sometimes i get nauseated in the middle of eating and i lose my appetite, or sometimes i suddenly get ravenously hungry and it happens then. i can't figure out a pattern! anyone else have this problem? thanks a million!

Ahh...welcome to my world. I was diagnosed with celiac disease back in August and have been on the gluten-free diet ever since. I assumed my nausea would dissappear as I continued the diet. I tend to get more nauseated around the time of my period. I asked my GYN about it and she said that it could be hormonal.

Around that time I was having food allergy testing done and soy came up as a food intolerance for me. I have since taken it out of my diet and I haven't been as nauseous! When I think back about my symptoms and when I had soy, the two went hand in hand.

I'm pretty new to celiac disease, so I'm not really sure which direction to point you in. For me it seemed to be food related. Keeping a food/symptom journal really helped me. I was able to review what I had eaten and when I was nauseous. Maybe that could help you.

I have only been gluten-free since June, but I've been sick for about 20 years. Nausea and lightheadedness (anemia) were my main problems for most of that time. The D and other symptoms of Celiac kicked in around 2 years ago. There really was no pattern to the nausea, and back then, I was eating everything--no dietery restrictions. One thing that I have learned will cause severe nausea for me are eggs. About 4 hours after I eat them, I get horrible nausea that lasts for hours. I have it much less now but when glutened, I will still get it. I think nausea is the worst feeling of all--I hope you figure it out soon :)

I had mild nausea for I think eight months or so after going gluten free, then it started to get less, and now after 15 months it's completely gone, unless i get glutened.

Yes!!! I have a 15-year old son who was diagnosed last year with Celiac disease. He's very careful about what he eats, but he can't seem to shake the nausea. It has gotten better since he started his gluten-free diet, but it always seems to be there. He'll be starving, but before he's even 1/2 way through his meal will start to feel so nauseaus that he has to stop. It even makes it almost impossible for him to swallow pills. We've tried to figure out a pattern, but there doesn't seem to be any. He says he's just gotten used to feeling that way most of the time, but who wants to live life that way???!! I keep hoping that the longer he stays gluten-free, the better it will get. I don't know. I'll keep in touch and let you know if we make any progress or discover a reason for the nausea. Strange though it sounds, it actually helps to know that someone else is experiencing the same symptoms. Good luck to you!!

i thought the same thing! i hate to know that anyone else is nauseated, but it makes me feel less alone! :) i'm still struggling... sometimes it's worse than others but it is really complicating my eating schedule now that classes have started back... i can't eat much at the time, because i get nauseated and don't want to finish and then not long afterwards i start to feel like i'm starving and that is also nauseating! i can't figure it out. i'm doing the food journal and i can't pinpoint a trigger. the only thing i haven't tried is cutting out caffeine.. but at one coke or cup of coffee a day, it's hard to believe that would be the problem. :( please do keep in touch and let me know if you find anything that works!

Pauliina, i'm glad yours is gone!

Just a thought, But I am convinced that drinking or eating any aspartame makes me nauseated!. It may not happen for other people, but when I have any, I have nausea on and off. SO you may want to look into that. Aspartame is in a ton of foods, even gum. I am sure most people know it is in alot of stuff.
