Hyperventilation & Celiac's

Recommended Posts

Guest Norah022

So I have been having a lot of problems since going gluten-free and no one has been able to figure out what is going on.I have had so many different diagnosises and nothing has been right. So today I am cruising webmd looking for an article for class and see this thing on hyperventilation and decide to take a look. I have almost every single symptom listed:

Feeling anxious, nervous, or tense.

Frequent sighing or yawning.

Feeling that you can't get enough air (air hunger) or that you need to sit up to breathe.

A pounding and racing heartbeat.

Problems with balance, lightheadedness, or vertigo.

Numbness or tingling in the hands, feet, or around the mouth.

Chest tightness, fullness, pressure, tenderness, or pain.

Headache.

Gas, bloating, or burping.

Twitching.

Sweating.

Vision changes, such as blurred vision or tunnel vision.

Problems with concentration or memory.

Loss of consciousness (fainting).

And severe hyperventilation cannot be treated simply with the typical home treatments.

So has anyone had any experience with this or have i gone mad looking for an explanation for my problems?

I used to hyperventilate. I have gluten intolerance and adrenal fatigue. Since you already know about gluten intolerance, look up adrenal fatigue and see if it's a fit. It's a shot in the dark, but ya' never know! Many of us are prone to adrenal fatigue because we've been sick for so long! It's not something docs tend to recognize either, so it's overlooked even though it's very real.

You also could be suffering from anxiety, but again, supporting the adrenals, where the stress hormones come from, would be a help.

My symptoms don't really fit with adrenal fatigue. I have looked into in the past and most of them don't apply to me, if any.

And we are not talking hyperventilating every few days for 20 minutes at a time....These symptoms are almost always happening..some of them come and go but are with me for most parts of the day and some of them continuously happen.

Hmmm, could it be anxiety? They even tested me for asthma my hyperventilation got so bad. I don't do it anymore at all.

I had a positive blood test. My dad got diagnosed 7 years ago and I have had symptoms all my life so I was getting blood tests continuiously to find out what it was.

My dad and I share the same doctor and given that I tested full positive and my dad has it, that was all the doctor needed to know that I had Celiac's.

The symptoms of hyperventilation have developed and gotten worse since going gluten free.

They have also been ten times worse since August when I came to school.
