Does anyone have a problem with bloating after working out?

I found that working out made unnoticeable symptoms evident. I got bloating as well as GERD. I had to clean up my diet a bit more. It did make me feel better, though.

What does your diet look like (give examples) for:

- 12 hours prior to your work out

- 12 hours after

That may help us pinpoint something. Been there (unfortunately) but it is now ancient history.

Nope. And I'm wondering if perhaps something you are eating to give you energy before hand might be causing it? I only bloat (this is just me, of course) when I eat gluten. Give your foods another check, the pans you use, the utensils, etc.

I don't know how much these symptoms are related to celiac or not--but after an intense workout (i.e. more than just a walk around the block or 30 minutes on the elliptical) I have noticed the following things:

my whole body feels like it's swelling -- including my legs and feet (which puff up), and my abdomen feels uncomfortably swollen

lack of flexibility / stiffness

extreme fatigue

surprise diarrhea & stomach cramps(as if I drank plumbing fluid that "cleared my pipes")

brain fog

depression / weird dark thoughts/feelings

severe soreness the next day (and even more so the day after that... i.e. 2 days later)

I think there were other things--but I can't remember everything because it has been a while since I've done anything intense (obviously it's not something that results in much joy). Plus I think I retained more water and even GAINED weight from exercising (even though that doesn't make any sense). I was diagnosed celiac in late January and have been gluten-free since then. I don't think my body has healed enough yet for me to see any major differences, but I'm hoping to see changes once I do attempt to start exercising and doing sports again.

I also used to have what I thought were "panic attacks" during sports practices... an allergist tested me for everything and found I was allergic to nothing, so he diagnosed me as having "cholinergic urticaria", which is more or less a condition where the patient responds to heat/exercise/over-exertion with an allergic reaction (most noticeably, hives). Now I'm wondering if this reaction to overexertion could be related to celiac. Hopefully, time will tell.
