    Do you have questions about celiac disease or the gluten-free diet?


Bloating, Pain Still 7 Days Afterwards

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Normally when I get the massive bloating, I do a fast and the bloating goes away, and then dairy or sugar is not a problem. Now I cannot eat anything!

This time I am doing the fast and even the carrot juice is causing me to bloat.

Now I'm wondering if my bacteria are out of balance because of the ice cream I was eating, (bad girl :( ) and maybe I should cut out all sugars and starches like the SCD diet. I got real sick at first from eating some yogurt with strawberry preserves. I mean really, really sick.

Or does anybody have any ideas as to why I'm still bloated and in pain, or anything that I could be doing?

I solved my own riddle.

I took 2 motrin because of my joint pain, and within 30 mins my stomach pain was gone.

So I obviously had some inflammation going on.

I have stopped drinking coffee, given up everything dairy except yogurt, and all sugar except honey for awhile. I also ordered the SCD diet in the hope that I can actually heal my intestines.

I've also lost 3 lbs! :)

It might help. A lot of celiacs get SIBO (small intestinal bacterial overgrowth). normally bowel flora stays in the large intestines. So depriving those buggers of sugars and starches might reduce the population. That is probably why fasting helps you. But remember that dairy products like yogurt and honey (obviously) contain sugar, there's lactose in dairy. The SCD diet might help, they ferment all the lactose out of the yogurt.

Also... you might have a casein sensitivity. You should probably stop dairy for awhile and see if that helps you out.

I haven't had any antibiotics in a long time so I knew the overpopulation wasn't from that exactly. But my dog has a yeast problem and she has no sugar or dairy or grains of any kind and I can't seem to get rid of her problem either. I wonder if a yeast problem is the same as SIBO? I'm a little confused about that.

I ordered a yogurt maker with the book and bought some goat milk so that I could make the SCD yogurt, although I ate some regular, plain yogurt and it didn't seem to bother me. Instead of the sugary preserves, I just added some crushed strawberries and I was thinking that's why I didn't get sick. But that might not be the case if I have any more. :huh:

I did wonder about the honey. I'm anxiously awaiting the book hoping it will clear up the confusion about the honey. I also wondered about the natural sugars in the carrot/apple/ginger juice.

    Oh yes, it could, although to be honest I never got myself so wet with sweat that it would have been a serious situation.  However, I can remember one time when I got caught in a cloudburst while going to my car in a large parking lot, though, and got soaked to the skin, and of course had to wear those soaking-wet clothes while I drove the 45 minutes it took me to get home --- I will NEVER forgot the misery and agony of that drive!  I could just barely keep the car under control, in fact.
    Thanks for your response, Squirmingitch, but I have to almost laugh, as at this point I am not really stressing over these questions at all --- just curious.  I have always been an insatiable question-asker, so please don't take my frequent questions as a sign of my obsessing over celiac disease or DH.  Yeah, admittedly I was rather stressed out for a couple of days two weeks  ago or so, but I am significantly settled down now, even while negotiating the nutritional maze of trying to manage two
Water?! That's… unreasonably inconvenient. Did it happen with sweat?
