has anyone out there heard of or experienced nausea while exercising... even while you are trying NOT to overdo it?

i understand it can be associated with leaky gut/celiac? i experience this problem a lot and wondered if i was alone on that or if anyone had any pointers.

I don't think your alone in this one. One thing you may want to do that can help is to make sure you have had some protein and carbs, both, before you begin your routine. That may help. Don't eat right before you start but a light meal with a hard boiled egg, some cheese, peanut butter, crackers and/or a bit of fruit or nuts might do the trick.

Any signs of giddiness when this happens ? How is your blood pressure .... low ? Do you get giddy when standing up suddenly or hate bright light , and shopping mall noise ? I get nausea - usually when my cortisol is low after extra activity. I have adrenal insufficiency. Might pay to google and check that out if you answered yes to any of the above.

I get nausea, shortness of breath, dizziness, and sweating when I exercise. I have ischemia. I failed my stress test last summer. Funny, my cholesterol is 151. My cardiologist feels I have small artery disease. He wanted to take me to the cath lab, but I said NO!, so I am supposed to test again in 6 mos.

I also have a leaky aortic valve.

Hi Lizard!

"Over-doing it" is all relative, based upon your fitness level. I know some hard-core weightlifters who say that if you DON'T get nauseous (or, preferably, throw up!) when exercising, you're not training hard enough. :D

Do you get nausea at other times, or only when exercising? If it only happens when you exercise, it's probably not related directly to the celiac disease. Make sure you don't eat for a couple hours before your workout. (I prefer exercising first thing in the morning on an empty stomach) And I'd suggest cutting back until you don't get sick when you work out. I don't know your age or fitness level or what kind of workout you're doing, but I strongly believe that for long-term health there's nothing better than long walks and brief, intense weight-training.

If you're like a lot of us (incl me!) and weren't diagnosed for a long time, there are probably lots of organs and systems inside you that are messed up. I'm 2 years gluten-free, and still hypoadrenal and a bit hypothyroid. But I'm a lot better than a year ago and A LOT better than 2 years ago. Let yourself heal.

Hi, Celery is one of the top allergens, so it could be a reaction to celery. https://www.livestrong.com/article/207641-celery-allergy-symptoms/ By the way, I merged your two similar threads.  The forum rules don't allow duplicate threads,  They make things confusing.  But no problem, carry on!
