Intolerent Or Allergic To Something More Than Just Gluten

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello friends--

Recently, I came into contact with gluten through CC after having been doing quite well. This was a week ago. The past five days have been progressively worse in terms of feeling so nauseated and bloated that I cannot seem to catch my breath or breathe properly, as well as severe pressure in my head, extreme fatigue, aching back and general weakness. When I don't eat, things get better. However, after a normal, gluten-free and Dairy-free meal, the same symptoms start up again.

I'm afraid that my Celiac issues are triggering or branching out into other intolerances? How is the best way to figure this out? I'm so tired of feeling like I'm swimming around inside my own head because of pressure inside it, not being able to breathe, and the gassy, bloated feeling which comes with every meal so far. I would try a tea and broth diet, but am afraid of possibly making things worse instead of better? Not to mention, providing adequate nutrition while working at a job where I'm on my feet constantly?

You say you are eating a normal meal. What all is involved with that? If you are eating the same things in each meal, one of them could be the culprit.

Gluten is not an issue for me. I do have food allergies and gastroparesis. When my stomach is acting up, I pretty much limit myself to rice and chicken broth. Maybe a bit of cooked chicken breast. I know these things don't make me ill.

What you should probably do is pick something off of the BRAT diet and stick to that one thing for a day. Maybe not toast because the gluten-free bread can contain a variety of things. But applesauce (plain, unsweetened), plain white rice, or bananas. If you feel okay in eating that one food, then eat it for a couple of days and then add another food. You don't want to add too much at once. But on the other hand you don't want to keep this up for too long or you'll get nutritional deficiencies.

Given that IgG allergies or intolerances can have a delayed reaction, sussing out the culprit or culprits can be tough.

Keep a food diary. Also, trying to eat simpler helps.

I ended up mostly writing it w/ a phone keybd, but also used little notebooks.

There'd be times i'd read back thinking "wait wasn't I ok last time I ate this?" Only to find I wasn't fine but was leaning twds blaming something else - or vice versa somethingorother.

Things can be learned w/ a food diary that aren't learned otherwise.

Your system could just be out of wack from the gluten CC. It can take awhile for some to recover. For example when I get CC'd, depending on the amount, my glutening symptoms can last for up to two weeks. I have to be extra careful with what I eat since my stomach and intestines are so sensitive. Once it passes I can go back to eating normally(gluten free of course). :P Hope this passe soon for you!

I second the thought that it might be something in your normal gluten free meal. Have you changed anything about it recently? Changed brands of something?

I also second the idea of keeping a food diary. That is very effective for figuring out what is bothering you, whether it be gluten cc or other food intolerances.
