Nausea Every Evening...

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Any ideas why I'm having this problem. I'm nauseous every night....like almost throwing up. It's just been since I went on the gluten-free diet. I feel especially bad tonight and have a killer headache too.

Many possibilities here. Here are something to think about:

Other foods or additives- dairy, soy, xanthan gum, etc.

Too little or too much vits. Too little iron can bring on nausea or taking too much D.

Did you just go off a med? That can also create stomach upset.

Having any trouble with acid reflux? Spice, acidic foods, alcohol for some, can cause nausea.

For awhile I was waking up with nausea every morning and couldn't figure out why. It would go away as the day went on but would be back each morning. I started keeping a detailed food diary and found it was soy content in probiotics I was taking every night before I went to bed.

That the nausea is happening around the same time each day suggests an intolerance to something you're ingesting everyday (that may not necessarily be gluten). That food diary is key: what you ate, the time you ate it and the time you experienced the symptom. Then use that history to play detective and EVERYTHING should be considered suspect. Hope you figure it out soon!!

If I find out that I have to cut more foods out of my diet, I will go crazy. I can barely eat anything now as it is....plus, for a person that is a recovering anorexic, having to continually cut foods out of your diet makes it even harder to stay on the path to recovery....

I admit I do not have personal experience with anorexia, but is it possible that if you could isolate what is making you so miserable in the evenings, there may be a replacement for it, e.g., a packaged food that contains soy could be exchanged for one that is soy free?

Are you eating foods that are packaged? If so, I'd start with one of those as a possible nausea culprit and then ponder further for a solution. One thing at a time. Please let everyone know how you are doing.

If your not pregnant..... I got morning sickness all day, especially when I was hungry.

But now that I'm not preggers, I will get a headache in the late afternoon if I don't eat enough protein during the day. I know its that because, if I eat something proteiny like cheese or meat, it mostly goes away. You say you are barley barely eating, so maybe its blood sugar or my unscientific protein deficiency. :)

Edited to fix an unfortunate typo.

I just looked back at some of your posts and notice that last week you may have still been eating a bit of gluten. If you are now entirely gluten free, you may be experiencing withdrawal. It is common and will pass but you must stay gluten free. If you are not gluten free, then you cannot evaluate any other food intolerances until you are 100% so.

Either way, this is for your health and good nourishment. Gluten is simply a protein, it's not an end all/be all, and neither is any other food you may find your system cannot tolerate. Being well and feeling happy is worth giving up things that make you feel badly.

I am also at the stage of things where I am still narrowing down the things that are affecting me and am also frustrated by the dwindling foods available to me! But - I am not also recovering from an eating disorder, that makes the situation all the more difficult. You have my sympathy! I hope you are getting the support you need during this difficult stage; just try to keep in mind that it's a stage that will pass and you will get to the point where things stabilize and you feel good again! Good luck to you.

You may have said before on another thread, but ...Why are you limited in what you can eat? Can you eat PB or Almond butter? Maybe try some on an apple in the afternoon and see if that helps?

I always seem to have more problems being on the gluten free diet than when I'm not on it. I think that makes this all so much harder for me....

That is very interesting. Are there foods you are eating more of when you go gluten-free? Have you tried a food diary to narrow down why it might be occurring?

I'm really not "changing" anything.....I mean....I'm eating gluten free now, but I'm not eating more of something that I wasn't eating before.

I do know that the gluten-free stuff is harder to digest....and I need an easily digestible diet. For some reason, white bread and white flour, etc are the easiest foods to digest....

Did you have dairy with it? Butter or sour cream? I'm a little sensitive to nightshade veggies, including potatoes. I sure hope that isn't your issue.

Was there anything on it? Was it the only thing you ate? What did you drink alongside it? Take any supplements after?

So there could be a few things going on. You need to test each of the items to see which one is causing it - have a plain potato (yawn, I know) on an empty stomach and just drink water, and see what happens. If you feel sick, you know you have an issue with potatoes. (You should still test each one of the other items to make sure you aren't reacting to any of them too). It's just a process of elimination, luckily you only have a few items there to go through!

But why would I be fine eating potatoes before and now because I went gluten-free I now have a problem?? That doesn't make sense to me....

Well, it seems that a lot of us who go gluten-free become very sensitive to other things in our diet. My doc says when you take the biggest offender out of the picture, other things bubble up to the surface. For me it was corn and anything derived from corn, even sweeteners. I'd been having those for life without any perceived problem, but now that I'm gluten-free they make me feel sick. So you just have to test to see what is making you feel bad. It sucks after going through getting gluten out of your diet, to be faced with still more foods that need to be removed. At times it can be overwhelming but when you find what's making you sick and you get rid of it, you will feel so good it will be worth the stress!

:(. I've been there. Where you are hungry and overwhelmed and sick of thinking about it, and know that anything you put in your mouth is going to make you feeling lousy. Just this week I figured out my corn-derived sweetener issue and removed it (I am eating muffins out the wazoo bc I was dropping weight like crazy. Now they are totally unsweetened muffins. Yum. Not.) and it was like everything felt different overnight. It feels like such a relief physically to have that gone. Hang in there, really, you are trying to figure out what works for you and it's really really hard. But at some point you will get there - and it could be sooner than you think! - and you will know what to eat and what not to, to keep yourself feeling good.

I hardly know anything about gastroparesis so I typed "gastroparesis carbonation" into Google. This came up at the American College of Gastroenterology website. http://patients.gi.org/topics/gastroparesis/

"Symptoms of gastroparesis include bloating, nausea, early fullness while eating meals, heartburn, and epigastric pain. Ingestion of solid foods, high fiber foods such as raw fruits and vegetables, fatty foods or drinks high in fat or carbonation may cause symptoms."

Could it be the Vernor's?

Maybe it was OK before but now that your diet is a little different it's triggering some nausea?

Please don't get frustrated to where you eat gluten. My thyroid is a mess from having celiac undiagnosed for so long and I hate to see anyone else mess themselves up.

Oh, another dumb question because I don't know about gastroparesis. Can you have a drink like Ensure to get some calories? Ensure is gluten-free.
