Hi I found out through enterolabs that I need to cut out gluten and casien so for a week I have, except my magnesium I was taking still was not gluten-free, so I got gluten-free mag. and this is my third day being totaly gluten-free and no casien. Today I feel terrible heartburn no "D" but going to the bathroom today 5 times! Still am very bloated and my muscles feel achy and knotted just feel crappy. Is this normal to feel this bad?

hi, yup its normal it took me about 3 months to feel good again. as well your body is going through a sort of withdrawl, from the gluten and casien, but no worries stick with it and you will feel better.

GOOD LUCK!

If you only quit the vitamins with the gluten 3 days ago you are still experiencing the effects. Be sure to check everything else that use on or in your body. It does take some time to heal but it took us a lot of time to get as sick as we needed to be to be diagnosed. Hang in there it will get better.

Yes this is pretty normal.

When I was diagnosed I had to ingest lots of gluten for about 4 weeks before the endoscopy and I was a total zombie for the 4 weeks plus about another 4 weeks after that.

You are feeling sick because your body is trying to heal itself.

If you want to speed up your recovery you need to really take care of yourself. This includes not ingesting anything unless you are positive that it is gluten free (I cut out anything processed unless it was labeled as gluten free). Also try getting a good gluten free multivitamin and a gluten free echinacea tablet (echinacea boosts the immune system, I find that it helps me recover from just about anything)

Remember that everyone heals at a different rate, some people start to feel better in a matter of days, for others it can take much longer.

I hope you start to feel better soon!

Gluten Free Since mid March 2008

As well as gluten I can't eat: cantaloupe, honeydew, dairy and most nuts and seeds. I also seem to have a problem with a lot of fruits and vegetables but only when they are raw.
