Hello All!

This is my first post, so please excuse any posting errors :)

I've only recently (within the last month) discovered my two month-long diarrhea (and a myriad of other problems) are caused by gluten. I've cut it out of my diet completely (with the exception of being given beef stew that had beer in it and being told it was gluten-free) for two weeks now. My movements have been regular which is wonderful. However, when I workout, and specifically when I play indoor soccer (short, bursts of speed) I feel extremely nauseous. So much so that I have to take myself out of the game.

I did not feel nauseous when I was eating gluten. I would get stomach cramps and diarrhea, but now that I've cut it out I notice this urge to throw-up when running hard.

Has anyone else had this experience? Do you think this is just due to my stomach "getting used" to being gluten-free? It's really affecting my hard workouts as well.

Any comments are welcome.

Thanks!

I had nausea when I first went gluten free, too, and i didn't before that, so i think it was some kind of a reaction to changing my diet. I'm sorry to say it took me about six months gluten free before it went away. But eventually it did!

Thanks, Pauliina!

I'm glad to hear that it eventually went away. I keep testing myself physically to see how hard I can go before I want to throw-up. I have a road race on the 18th, so that might be a good test :(

Does the nausea happen to you when you're working out really hard, or do you have nausea in general?

I had nausea in general. Mind you, I don't any more (after two+ years gluten free). Working out in my case means aikido, which involves a lot of rolling... not a good combo with feeling nauseous. :P:blink::lol:

I haven't been gluten free long either and was wondering the same thing tonight. I play volleyball once a week - I get headaches and just feel blah. My nausea has gotten better week by week - so I'm hoping that eventually it'll be gone :) I used to run before all of my D started - I'm looking forward to starting that up again as the weather gets nicer. Hopefully all this blah will be gone by then :)

GOod luck - hope it goes away!

I played field hockey throughout college and did not have these problems, however, I did have a severe problem with becoming dehydrated which then causes the symptoms you are describing, maybe you're not getting the proper hydration that you need to in order for these symptoms to lessen. When I played I had to be very strict about what I ate and making sure that I ate, since skipping meals has always been a problem for me. I also had to have a supply of water and any juice that you like to help keep you going, mine was apple juice (with the occasional orange soda as a substitute, strange I know)...this disease shouldn't keep you from playing a sport that you love, it just makes you be a lot more cautious about things!! i hope you figure it out!!
