Hi, do any of you still get the grumbly rumbly noise after you eat? I still do almost every single time after I eat. I can't figure it out. Is one month enough time to be gluten-free and see results? I def. feel better but I still get occasional "C" and this annoying intestinal noise :-(

That is annoying!!! Mine rarely hurts, it has at times though but that was mostly pro to gluten-free Diet. Now it happens almost every time after I eat but doesn't last long but geesh why does it happen?

How long have you been gluten-free? I am trying not to get frustrated but I am :-( I have been doing this for a month and felt some relief for sure but I keep waiting for that burst of energy and non constipated/bloaty days. I never got officially tested because I went gluten-free before (had I seen this board first I would not have made that dingy move) BUT I did do my research and I know my history and it seems like a dead ringer. I still second guess myself all the time.

I just started the diet about a week and a half ago and second guess that it's actually working. What I've started to do is create a Google document table (like Excel) and keep track of what I eat every day. I highlight foods that give me moderate stomach issues in yellow and then scale up to orange and red (I was having "red" at least 2-3 times a week). The first 3 days I had a "yellow" or mild issue each day, but after that I've had nothing for about 5 days. I've eliminated all gluten and also milk (I switched to soy but I might some other alternative as I hate the taste and hear conflicting things about it).

I'm still gassy though, and when I lay on my back my stomach makes LOUD noises, like my hubby will glance over at me and give me a "what the heck" face. I can feel it when it happens, and it can be very uncomfortable, especially when I sleep (I can only sleep on my side due to this). Also coffee in the morning really makes me uncomfortable I'm realizing, so I've considered switching to herbal coffee (Teeccino).

My celiac test came back negative but I have a very close family history of it, so I thought gluten intolerance might be an issue (so I know what you're saying about second guessing not having a doctor reaffirm that this is actually what you have).

Imbalances and overgrowths of microorganisms in the intestine feed on the food eaten and produce the gas. This is referred to as Dysbiosis and can be caused by bacteria, yeasts and even parasites. Some celiacs seem to be able to normalize the bowel flora and this gets better over time. But many of us need to either work with Drs to correct this problem or use self treatment with supplements and cleanses. A normal person will have no bacteria or yeasts in the stomach or upper small intestine because their strong stomach acids kill them off as does the bile and some of the digestive enzymes in saliva or from the pancreatic secretions. Having volumes of gas soon after eating means that these organisms are living in the upper intestine. Choosing foods that do not encourage the growth of these organisms helps a lot. I use the legal food list from a gluten free diet, take stomach acids in the form of Betaine-HCl and use probiotic, capsules and sheeps milk yogurt. Kefir is good and for people with milk allergies can be made with water.

I get a hugely loud grumbly rumbly tummy, rarely aches, just occasionally. I've found it's when i eat vegetables in the evening and if i go to bed shortly after or if im sprawled out on the sofa relaxing my tummy is often as loud as the t.v. My partner thinks its hilarious. My mum has the same reaction to eating veggies in the evening. (shes coeliac too)

I am gluten-free Coeliac for 1 year. I still have lots of gas and pain. I am on a limited diet - gluten-free and FODMAP - it's really annoying! I just had my blood work done and it's all normal so at least I am avoiding gluten well.

It is so frustrating isn't it? Do you ever think it is something else and that you are barking up the wrong tree? I am trying to stay positive but sometimes I want to give in. I know I feel better on the diet but yet when I have bouts of constipation and rumbles still I go crazy. It isn't controlling my life like before but I guess I just was hopeful it would cease. Prob stupid on my part.

Frustrating? Yes. Stupid to be hopeful? No. I still have hopes my rumbles will stop grumbling. :D

Hi, I'm new to the group. I found out 1 1/2 years ago that I have Celiac with a biopsy. My blood test didn't show anything, but I had already stopped eating gluten a month before because I suspected that I may have it. I'm 53 years old, and feel very alone most of the time! My husband, and two adult kids have not been tested yet. I think my husband may have it too, and possibly our 33 year old son, but they are in denial! I have fibromyalgia, numbness & tingling in my arms, hands, legs and feet. I also have bad night sweats, depression, anxiety, and even though I have been gluten free for over a year I still feel crappy most days. I'm also lactose intolerant. It seems like after I eat my first meal of the day about an hour later I get a lower belly ache, feel kinda nauseous until after I have a few bowel movements! I feel like a prisoner in my body and my home! Most days I don't feel like going anywhere because I feel so yucky, and I don't want to have to run to the bathroom some where, and have an "attack" out in public some where! Does anyone else experience this, or am I alone? :( Sometimes I'll start sweating really bad before an "attack", and during my bathroom visit. Oh and I forgot to say, I'm also morbidly obese, and have been most of my life. I have tried several diets only to lose weight and gain it back. I wanted to try gastric bypass until I found out that I can't because I have Celiac! :( I feel so hopeless, and misunderstood, and like NO one knows what it feels like to be me. Oh, I also get fluid retention in my inside upper thighs, and feet if I stand for very long. Does anybody else get this? Thanks for listening.....

Aw i feel for you i really do. It will take a while and you do have to be super careful (cross contamination is hell!), i do get the sweats before needing a bathroom visit, also feeling faint! I'm underweight so i don't think its to do with your size. I also don't go anywhere at the moment because i feel so 'yucky'. You may find going for a short walk around the block helps, i know i do, and i know how much energy it takes! I think you need to focus on yourself mainly at the moment, if your husband and son are in denial leave them to it, im sure you've said all you can! I went right back to basics and thats how i ended up losing weight but it was the only way i could eat at the time. I ate plain boiled rice and veg, bananas and sipped plain black tea to stop any nausea. Maybe try it for a while i know its bland but it helps stop the emergency runs! (literally!) good luck
