Gluten Or Sick

Recommended Posts

My son came home last night from wrestling practice and had major stomach pains that led him to throwing up. He has been doubled over in pain since last night. Every time he stands up he gets really dizzy and almost passes out. He has really bad dark circles around his eyes this morning and more mouth sores. I am taking him to the dr this afternoon.

I am undecided on if its a virus or him being glutened. He has been very emotional the last few days to.

When he wakes up I am going to ask him what all he ate. He has been sneaking food for some time, so im hoping he tells me everything he has been eating.

If it wasnt for the mouth sores i would think maybe just sick, but he dont have an fever to cause them. And he has never been this dizzy from a cold.

We just dealt with this issue with my oldest. She was sick, but her symptoms were all over the board. She started with stomach ache, nausea and flushed cheeks. The next morning she had a fever and sore throat. The 3rd day the fever was gone. The 4th day it was back, but the stomach ache was gone. We called the doc on Monday (day 5).

They said there was a virus going around that would cause the sore throat and fever, but the stomach ache was an anomaly so the nurse wondered aloud if there wasn't a combination of things. I finally had to tell DD, "You will not get in trouble this time, but I have to know-did you eat something you shouldn't have?" She ate half a box of Girl Scout cookies on Thursday-the symptoms started that night. So, she had a virus and a gluten attack! I

t is so hard to know when they are really sick when some of the gluten symptoms mask other illnesses. Of course, the fever made my mom say that gluten didn't have anything to do with it, she really is sick! I just can't seem to convince her-there is always something to excuse their symptoms or behavior.

He is at the dr now with my husband, I did ask him what he ate, and he said he just ate some fruit, but he ate it from the lunch room, so it could of been contimanted. I had my mom come down today and she looked at him and said he looks so bad, and she can see he has lost more weight since they were here last week.

I told hubby to ask them if we can at least do an lactose intolerant test on him, since we are still waiitng to see the ped Gi dr next month.

I hope your dtr is doing better now.
