Sick And Miserable

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Woke up this morning and felt a bit off - stuffy, achey, just off...

Shook it off, then around noon a crashing headache and earache....just wanted a nap.

A few hours later looked like my temp was rising-took Tylenol.

I've been in bed since tring to sleep...no more fever bit I just can't sleep, muscles ache a bit, brain doesn't work.

I swear I can't sleep because I can't stop wondering if it's a bug or if it's gluten!!!! Argh!!! Why can't I just be "sick", without wondering why??? I just want to switch my brain off!!!!

Ok, I'll stop whining now.

I had a bad day yesterday (and today and probably going to be few days to get it out of my system).

Drink lots of water.

It will pass (water or cc etc).

And remember how it feels to be good.

Keep posting....

Sorry you're under the weather. I hope it is not gluten....seems like everything else passes faster. Take care of yourself!

Does sound like a bug. Hope you feel better soon.

With those symptoms it's hard to tell isn't it? You never know if you got a little dose of gluten from an ATM, door handle, handling money, mail, etc. I guess we'll always wonder when something gets us and we know we've been careful?

Drink lots of water to flush out whatever it is..and wishing you a speedy recovery!

it's terrifyting to get get sick after getting better. I had what turned out to be a virus mid-October and I absolutely freaked out...thinking that I was headed back to where I'd been before eliminating gluten. It really messes with the mind.

Hopefully rest and time will put you back on track.

Thanks forcyge responses. Still no more fever that I can tell...

Still feel miserable. Stomach works. I can eat. My muscles ache and I'm just not quite right.

Unfortunately I worked out yesterday with crunches, weights and it's really hard to tell if I hurt from that or a bug. Sad but true. Ok, muscles I didn't work hurt too, and my sinuses and ears were truly miserable....i guess that wasn't from weights!

Yeah, it's frustrating not knowing for sure if it's gluten or not. I got really sick a couple of months ago and ended up in the ER. The doc said it was food poisoning, but I'm not so sure. I just kept wondering if it was gluten related. I guess it's all part of my gluten paranoia :rolleyes:

For me the best indicator is what I ate. The other day I used a pan that i thought could have been contimated and sure enough I was horrible for part of the day. Once the D passed i was ok.

Also, I never throw up if its gluten. I want to, but vomitting is also a sure sign for me thats its something more serious.

Try keeping track of your symptoms when you suspect gluten.

Put a log together and compare. It will take time but eventually you will learn to put 2 and 2 together.

A fever sounds like a bug to me. Plus the way you are feeling so achy. I know gluten can make some people achy, but couples with fever, it's probably a virus. There's some going around now. We are getting over a virus that started out with nausea and a little bit of V, then moved into a stuffy nose and chest congestion like 5 days later. My kids got it too. The ped said it's a weird virus going around that acts a little different than you regular stomach bug or cold.

I feel better tonight.

I do think it was/is a bug or possibly a weird reaction to the drastic weather change (barometric). It was like a migraine crossed with sinus pain crossed with bad earaches. With some muscle aches, tiredness and a touch of elevated temp. Weird.

I'm still a little off but the more I move around the better I feel.

No red blotches (DH) or racing heart, swelling hands, or rock in stomach....so I'll assume it wasn't gluten. Then again, who knows..,

I've been under the weather for a week now. Started out as a head cold and now is going down into my chest. My chest and back hurt from coughing. My stomach feels great, with only a little upset from the post nasal drip. Weird thing is both of my kids have been complaing this week from stomach pains. The oldest one has been the worse with bad cramping and gas. I don't think they got into anything at home because I would be the first to know. I'm beginning to suspect the childrens allegra. Oldest boy had more than the youngest. I called the company and they said all tablets are gluten free. So I took that to avoid the liquid, but the childrens are chewable so technically not a "pill." I don't know if that could be it or they are getting sick. It really is hard to tell sometimes. BTW, anyone know about the allegra? I did quit giving it to them.
