Confused And Frustrated

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, wondering if anyone could offer any advice or insight?

Basically I've been eating gluten free now for a couple weeks, I went to Italy and had a gluten binge 2 weeks ago but was gluten-free before that. I wanted to reintroduce to see if I was indeed intolerant(which I'm now sure I am) anyway before I went to Italy I felt fantastic but since I've returned I've just been getting worse and worse everyday! Now I'm getting stomach cramps and bloating every night with both D and C and I have this terrible patchy eczema like rash all over my legs, which just isn't getting better. Getting headaches and dizzy too. Is it normal to continue to react like this? Shouldn't I start to feel better, not worse? I feel like I'm getting glutened everyday, but I'm being so cautious and taking no risks at all... I have been making gluten free cakes, is it possible these are too much right now?

Thanks guys, my dr is none too helpful, he had to google celiacs disease when I asked to be tested! Ugh, at least I got him to test me. Any advice you can tell me would be grand:)

My guess is that you need to give your poor gut and autoimmune system a rest. You just kicked it into ovedrive. So I'd stick with safe stuff (real, unprocessed food) for awhile and knock alternate grains and additives like guar gum etc off for awhile. I'm not even sure I'd drink coffee. Sage tea is good when you're healing...

Thanks for that! Top tip, I just so happened to have a big bag of sage tea from turkey in my cupboard. I've had 2 cups today thus far and my tummy feels more soothed already!

Also when healing does exercise get really tough? I cycle to work and back everyday and recently it's become very hard. Annoying!!!

Thanks again!
