Dizziness. I'll be sitting here at my desk and all of a sudden feel like I'm going to fall out of my chair.

The second most annoying is the diarrhea.

Definitely the major fatigue. When I get glutened I have to take a nap every day for usually about a week. I can't get out of bed in the morning. My two year old runs circles around me. The fatigue is definitely the worst for me.

My left temple twitches for about a week. It is very obnoxious!

My second thing is my stomach gurguling. I just don't like that feeling. That lasts for a few days too.

Moongirl,

Me too. While I am not as petite as you, I look pregnant. Does your bloating come and go or (before you went gluten-free) were you always bloated?

The most annoying to me are--

Fatigue--it is still hanging on despite enough and better sleep

Low abdominal cramping--especially after "going" in the morning (or whenever ;) )

Bloating--I start out ok in the AM, but my midsection gets bigger as the day goes on

I was gonan aswer this.. but I just cant think straight right now.....

EXACTLY!

My face going numb and having the rest of my head on the ceiling is really annoying, especially at work. DH doesn't appreciate it either, my attention span goes from zero to negative...

The D is pretty annoying also, nothing like abandoning your cart a half hour into your wal-mart trip to ruin your day. And stinking up the place. Luckily Target has mini Oust air freshener so that I can do that public service of decontaminating the bathroom :ph34r: ...


Alright, don't worry even if things end up a bit too heavy

We'll all float on, alright

Well we'll float on good news is on the way...

Bloating/cramps - It goes on for days and I look pregnant! (when I'm not) I've actually had strangers ask when I'm due! :blink: That's an akward moment! Now that I am actually pregnant if I get bloated there is even less room in there and it's really painful. :(

I don't have constant cramps, but they can strike at any moment for no reason - in the grocery store, at work, in the car......it's never when I'm at home and close to my own bathroom! :angry:

It wouldn't be so bad if it was just for a day...but it lasts upwards of a week!

My GI symptoms aren't all that bad really (or I don't mind them so much) but the BRAIN FOG :blink: and fatigue are really annoying!

The most annoying symptom though is that I get very depressed when I get glutened, and that makes dealing with all the other symptoms so much harder. I mean, then I end up being depressed about being tired, and bloated, and so on...and I hate knowing that life doesn't feel like any fun due to a stupid gluten molecule, and not because my life actually sucks, because it doesn't.

Congratulations to anyone who understood the above sentence! You have been now officially diagnosed as having NO brainfog at this moment! :lol:

Definitely the pain. I'm a tiny person but if I accidentally eat gluten *curses all the restaurants promising the meal I odered is gluten-free*, my belly balloons to a size of a house and is pretty #%!**@# painful. Not nice. As a result-crankiness and fatigue. :(

EXTREMELY FOUL GAS and unpredictable, immediate DIARRHEA.

It meant that I couldn't GO anywhere. I couldn't go to the store, to the bank, to people's houses. There were even a couple funerals I missed and that family still doesn't know why I missed.

The worst though was when my dad was sick and after he died, I couldn't even go to church because the gas was so bad, and almost constant. There was NO WAY I could go to church like that. That was the worst because I had lost so much, and I couldn't even have that.

Other than that, my back was in so much pain, I could barely walk. Which even further dimished my ability to do anything other than sit on my booty.

Since going gluten-free though, even when I get glutened I really don't have a problem with gas, diarrhea or back pain.

So now, if I get glutened I get REALLY cranky and get a headache. But that's just from cross contamination or forgetting to read a label. I haven't cheated since going gluten-free, so I don't know what would happen if I actually ATE something gluten.

My husband and best friend would both agree that CRANKY is my most irritating symptom. :lol:

My worst symptom (and sometimes ONLY symptom) would be the gas! It comes usually in the evening/night and ruins any romantic time with my hubby. I think he'd say that was my worst symptom too - I'm never "in the mood" because I'm afraid of the noises my tummy's going to make. :D


Diagnosed by biopsy with Celiac at age 1 in 1984.

No other health problems.

Hubby - no health problems.

Mallory (2 year old daughter) - no known health problems at this time.

Hannah (born 04/02/07) - no problems yet!

Family - no one diagnosed with Celiac - ever - to our knowledge. (Lucky me!)

I'd have to say the D and bloating are the worst, however brain fog drives me nuts, being tired all the time isn't fun, the itchy rash I get is miserable, and the low cramping is crummy. Come to think of it, the whole thing pretty much stinks!

Feeling up and down, but better!

this is a great question! For me I would say the mood swings and the NAUSEA. I get so nauseous I can't do anything. And it's not "normal' nausea- it's some foul mutation. UGH!

For me the pain is close to unbearable (I'm a lucky micro sensitive person!), however the most annoying is the nausea and belching. Not the actual act of belching, but the most retched, foul, rotten smell and taste that comes with the belching, and lasts around 7 hours (which has actually triggered vomiting).

I'll take every other symptom of mine over that!

My most annoying symptom is when my husband askes me in the morning if I want a biscuit from McDonalds, then says...."oh I forgot". <_<
