Just curious what other peoples' symptoms are.

Thanks

Ive only been gluten free for about 4 weeks. On halloween, I had an accident with a kit-kat bar...one bite and the next day I had terriable cramping. It felt like my intestines were tied in a knot. My eye got puffy, eczma flared and my house allergies were bad too. I'm just now starting to feel better again.

I'm definately not a poster Celiac.

Mood swings

Tiredness

Trouble focusing

Stomach burning if I don't eat

That's basically it. o.O I'm not the usual Celiac.

All it shows is happiness,

All it shows is fake.

Extreme fatigue, followed by stomach cramps, followed by the big "d", followed later by an itchy butt rash. It's lovely. Really.


~Ill for 5 years with progressive symptoms: anxiety, brain fog, joint pain, "D", and the noisiest stomach you've ever heard, and a lovely itchy rash on my buttocks, scalp, and sometimes thighs. ~ Family history of Celiac disease (Uncle, cousins, grandmother) ~ Blood work showed some antibodies but not enough to be dx celiac ~ Dq7 & Dq4. ~ I can't call myself Celiac but I know gluten is bad for my body.

Bloating, gas, sometimes D (not usually a symptom for me), stomache aches. I was never one to get real sick so these are my symptoms. So I am assuming I am doing good on the diet as I dont get these anymore, well everyone has a bit if gas...but us, a little is an understatement!!!

Good post.

My symptoms are almost exactly as Emily Elizabeth without the foot cramps. I also have alternating D and C and horrible joint pain (particularly my left hip bone). Also, big abdominal pain to go along with the horrible bloat and distention of my abdomen. Wish I could cut out my intestines! My stomach itself doesn't hurt; it's once things hit my intestines that the trouble begins.

I almost wonder if it would help to print out this and the July 2007 thread and take them to a doctor, if anyone needs to get her/his doctor convinced to consider their celiac-type symptoms. The two threads DO prove what the medical literature says, that symptoms from celiac disease vary from person to person, within a range.

The list from before I quit eating gluten.

--Extreme fatigue, way, way beyond excessively tired

--Felt like I had the flu 24/7

--Slept but I didn't get rest

--BAD case of brain fog

--Muscle spasms, especially foot spasms at night

--A lot of muscle, not joint pain; the fibromyalgia-like localized muscle pains that move around

--RAVENOUS

--Bloating, but minor compared to what I read for others

--Stools matched the usual celiac description, but not much diarrhea

--Mouth sores

--Blisters on my elbows

Nowadays my "geiger counters" that I've been glutened are

--Those blisters on my elbows. They come out *immediately*, itch like crazy and take a long time to go away.

--Immediate stool changes

--I feel bad: aches are back, I'm just plain sick

Minor milk intolerance, so get rumbly tum and bloating from that.

Oh, boy. First week I have no brain, and can't remember words right or if green means go on the stoplight. Also Am very dizzy, and nauseous, and have super-celiac-poopy. Then I'm lactose intolerant for a week, and I mean OW. Then I get the DH rash really bad, depending on how much gluten I ingested, which lasts for over two weeks. I'm sure I missed something, I'm still a little woozy from giving blood yesterday, but that's the gist of it.

Well I had thanksgiving lunch with my grandkids at there school well there was just green beans and turkey and sweet potatoes and I small piece of fried chicken nuggets in my potatoes . I did'nt want to make a seen so I took it out and ate the sweet potatoes. I have had a stomach since that night throwing up and big D my poor insides hurt so bad and I got sore all over. I had it now for 48 hr can't eat anything barely hold down water and sprite. I have check with everybody else I was with and around to see If they have gotten sick made food poisen but nobody got sick. So I guess I was glutened big time and a stupid mistake.

I hardly ever get glutened, but my first and last time I had bought some egg salad from the grocery store deli, reading all the ingrediants it appeared safe. 20 minutes after I ate it I had severe bloating, sharp pains in my stomach and horrible gas, it lasted about 3 hours.

Mine are different each time.

-sometimes nothing(not usual)

-acid reflux, burping and heartburn

-D, constipation or floating stools

-pain attacks below and betwen the ribs(almost as bad as labor) with fever and bloating. This was my most common symptom for years. I would be up all night crying and vomit from the pain. I thought it was an ulcer. Now only happens if I am glutened more than once in a short time so very rare. Dr.'s thought is was gallbladder.

-mouth ulcers

-depression

-palpitations

-swollen gums

-at first no appetite, later starving

First sign is "brain fog" -- feeling like I'm floating, not with it, extremely tired

Second sign is typically tingling/numbness in my arms and legs at night

Finally some trips to the bathroom

Gas and bloating

Same things if I eat soy or casein, but I don't typically get the tingling/numbness with those.

Edited to add: severe insomnia. I had even had a sleep study for this. Just could never fall asleep and felt tired ALL THE TIME. Sometimes I'd literally cry I felt so tired. Also fueled severe depression. This has gone away 95% of the time.

I Glutened myself at a football game today...crushed 4 hot dogs (no buns).

Within 1 hour I:

-Fell asleep at the game (NFL game, very loud, couldn't keep my eyes open)

-Crazy bloated...like my belly is gonna explode. extremely uncomfortable.

-Brain-fog, my head kinda throbs...not painful, just feels really weird.

-Total body discomfort...moaning and groaning.

It is the worst...the scary part was falling asleep at the game...came out of nowhere. Thanksgiving is gonna be tricky. But I'll get through it and be careful.

-Will
