I have yet to be diagnosed with Celiacs but I'm not really worried so much about that than learning to deal with the symptoms. I simply can't afford anymore to pay for a doctors best guess or indifference. I've been to many and I'm done trying to deal with it. I've taken a bunch of blood tests that tell them and me nothing new (I just wanted to get that part out of the way).

I had been gluten free for three weeks BUT I did a foolish thing last Wednesday. A friend had a birthday party and I had piece of cake. I don't even like cake but I had it anyway (I guess it was part of that "I'm depriving myself" feeling). OMG! The next day the pain, the gas, the diarrhea, the headache and nausea came on with a vengeance. I was sick for three days. I had to leave work twice because I just didn't feel good.

I now feel better since it seems the worst of the gluten attack is over. But I've noticed that I have a bloody-ish nose. I blow it and it is bloody though not bleeding. I've had this problem on and off in my adult life. When I was kid I used to get bloody noses all the time but when I was 17 it stopped. Now I just get the bloody snot. <_< So I got to wondering if this is also a part of my gluten problem, is it common? I also have congestion with the bloody snot (yuck). I hadn't had the bloody snot for a couple weeks which so it does seem it got better without gluten in my life.

Anyone else have this problem?

Yes! I definitely have the same problem when I've been glutened. Usually the first symptoms are a MAJOR migraine, slightly bloody nose, and vertigo. The "D" follows later.

Bloody noses are one of the things that my son had all the time before he got diagnosed. Now he only gets them when glutened.

Thank you for your replies.

Thank God for this site! I don't feel quite so much like hypochondriac. :D

The last year and a half has been a nightmare of symptoms that just kept piling up. I was running out of "specialists" to go to and my family doctor only wanted to treat the symptoms with pills (which didn't work).

Thanks for pointing this out. I just noticed that my daughter hasn't had many nose bleeds in the past year that she has been gluten free. She used to get them all the time.
