A Lot Of Nausea

Recommended Posts

Even though I have been feeling so much better on the gluten-free diet in regards to my gut, I am nauseated almost all of the time! What's the deal here? (and I am definitely not pregnant). I never used to be that way.

Yesterday evening I got so sick for no reason at all and was shaking and nauseated. There is no reason I should be sick like this! I've been gluten-free for 3 months now and although there are days when I feel great I am always feeling like throwing up.

Today I just feel tired and worn out and of course I have to be out until 9pm tonight. I am so sick of being sick.

I just wanted to write to vent b/c I am feeling sorry for myself. I force myself to keep up with my responsibilites because I have to, but it isn't easy. Especially when you don't feel well and have a substantial commute to work every day...blah....oh well...I guess I just have to look at the good days and be happy with those, right?

Thanks for listening,

Jenn

Are you sure that there are no possible ways that you could have been contaminated? Do you use gluten-free shampoos, lotions, cosmetics, etc? If you are still having a problem you may want to make sure your products are gluten-free as well.

Also maybe you have another food problem besides gluten. Have you considered getting a York test done?

Also have you been checked for candida? I was gluten-free for a few months and got aot better but I still had nausea on and off sometimes...I got on Nystatin and within a week the rest of my symptoms disappeared. So that's something to check on as well.

Do you have your nerves kicking up at all? When someone has anxiety their gut can not feel good because there are more nerve receptors in your stomach then there are anywhere else.

There are some things you can do to help your stomach.. peppermint, ginger,chamomile, yoga, and some teas...all these things should help to calm your stomach.

This was one of my main symptoms before diagnosis so I know how you feel.

Feel better soon and if you need any suggestions or help just let me know :D

You might also want to check on any meds you are taking to see if the nausea is a side effect. I got into something last August by accident and am still trying to get back up to full dosage on some of my meds. Every time I bump up a level on one of them I go through several days of vomiting. Ah, praise the Lord for phenergan!

Jenn, I feel for you - I think everyone here can. Wish I had an answer for ya, but dealing with the same problems myself. I'll keep watch on this thread for some good ideas. Been very careful to eliminate gluten from my diet, guess I need to check shampoos and such. I did check my makeup and it was fine. But not the soaps. Very frustrating. I can go a month or so and feel wonderful and then wake up in the middle of the night doubled over in pain and feel nausea for the next 3 months and not have a clue what started it. When I hurt and nauseated I take L-glutamen (no gluten dispite it's name) and it helps somewhat, at least with the pain part. I can't take a break either and must plug away at life, no matter how I feel. No one to take care of me, so I must take care of everything on my own. No fun. But it's nice to have a group to vent to, at least you don't feel quite so alone.

Jenn,

The things you are doing are good as far as I understand.

I gather many of us still have "turns" a couple of years in, which is a comfort to me.

My nutritionist told me never to take a carbohydrate item without adding some protein - whether nuts, pulses, meat, fish or dairy.

Some grains are in themselves higher in protein than others. Lots of white rice means less fibre, less protein and relatively high glycaemic index (quicker dissolving into simple sugars).

Keeping up protein steadies the blood sugar a bit better apparently.

Best wishes

Jenn,

Just thought - are you getting enough green leaf veg - slice up those spring cabbages & simmer a couple of mins - additionally the water makes a wonderful drink (magical green colour)

Is chicken agreeing with you? I find I have to be wary of chicken, maybe I don't chew it enough, I find it tasteless mostly. I like a well done leg best. Catering establishments are obsessed with the breast meat.

Lentils have a wonderful feel as one crunches through them.

Best wishes
