Anyone Get Worse As The Day Goes On?

Recommended Posts

I find that I am pretty good in the morning, stomach, energy etc. but as the day goes it gets worse. It doesn't seem to matter what I eat for dinner even plain white rice I get gassy and gurgling and just plain uncomfortable.

Thanks

That is true if I don't watch my carb/fat/protein ratios, as I am somewhat hypoglycemic. Otherwise, I'm fine. Especially if I get regular exercise. But if I'm not careful about how what I eat will affect my blood sugar, it can be "bad". :P

Around the time when I was being diagnosed with celiac disease, I would get really sick (D) in the morning and not have many more stomach problems until dinner. Then I would get explosive gas and severe bloating. This got better with time on the gluten-free diet.

I pretty much feel the same all day, headaches and all... until later on at night is when I feel my best, tired and can't sleep, but able to focus. Hence the reason that I do all my homework late at night.

I always thought my symptoms were just crazy. I usually didn't/don't do too bad in the mornings, but I could tell just how sick I'd be by the end of the day just by going on what time it would all start. If there were rumblings and howlings sounding by 10:00 a.m., I knew I was in for one heck of a time. IF they didn't start until 2:30 or 3:00, I knew it was just a regular bad day, and by bedtime I would be a mess of a human being, but it was okay because I'd sleep it off and be better by morning. Eventually the good mornings got shorter and shorter for me, and the sick afternoons and evenings became what my life was all about. I never went to any doctors or got any official diagnosis of anything, but just put myself on a gluten-free diet starting in February, 'o6, to see what would happen (and out of desperation too!!!!) and now I never have any problems before noon, which means they are milder than ever. For about one whole month now, MOST days I have very few problems. I've had one day that I thought was perfectly normal, no howling, no gas, no excessive bathroom visits...most of my days seem to be leaning more and more in that direction now. My biggest problem at this point is gassiness by the end of the day. I rarely have the grumbling, growling, pain, or need for multiple restroom visits anymore. I'm 53, believe I've had subtle hints of something going on my entire life, but symtpoms worse and worse for the past 10 years or more. I feel I'm healing very rapidly, from what I've seen and read. I am extremely cautious about everything I eat, where it comes from, etc. I have eaten out only two times since February, both times in a big buffet in which the salad bar is off away from the rest of the stuff (Golden Corral Buffet). I ate only salad and fruit. I took my own bottle of gluten-free (and I'm also dairy-free) salad dressing along.

I was wondering when you all started to feel better after going gluten free? I have been gluten free for two weeks and see my doctor in two weeks. I am not noticing any improvement yet, maybe a few good days the first week and that's it. I also have a lot of upper gi discomfort, ie chest pain and tightness and feeling very full or very hungry even whenI know I am not. As well as the lower gi discomfort. Not so much with the D but just trying to get comfortable and pass gas. With the upper I burp like a madwomen, it's horrid.

That is exactly the way it is for me. Really bad in the morning and then slowly get better as the days goes by. Then after dinner I get bloated and icky feeling again. The evening thing is better now when I am off gluten.

I always find that my energy level is great in the morning, and then by the end of the day I am toast. This is why I try to plan my day accordingly and get to bed early. It makes it hard when you are a student and can't do late night things, but not being a zombie in class is better. I also find that my pain gets worse as the day goes on. Mornings are great for having less pain and stiffness. I usually find that a cup of ginger tea in the afternoon keeps my stomach happy and helps me feel happy too. Maybe you should try ginger tea? Find one that is just ginger shavings, with no flavor additives. It is a natural stomach soother and helps your digestion. Whatever you do, DO NOT drink peppermint tea, it actually irritates your stomach. Other than that, Pain, stiffness, and lack of energy just comes with the territory. It will get better with time. I promise, but your stomach is always going to be finicky until you heal more. Of course, everytime you get glutened it sets you back on the healing process, but that is inevitable, unless you live in a bubble and never go outside it. ^_^

It takes awhile! Give yourself time. If you think about it your intestine has been really badly damaged and it takes time to heal. It has been about 1 and 3/4 months for me and I am still not "perfect" or back to normal. Just take care of yourself. Take gluten-free vitamins. Drink lots of water. SLEEP! I know it is hard but this is what has helped me improve so much! :)
