  1. Stomach And Intestinal Spasms

    Sounds a lot like my daughter, non-celiac gluten intolerant. She had major knife like chronic pain in her stomach which lessened considerably with gluten-free diet, an anti-spasmodic and low dose anti-depressant. What has never disappeared completely is the nausea. Sometimes it lessens during the day as she eats, but it is always present in the morning, and frequently awakens her at night. She takes generic zofran as needed, but it still doesn't stop it. We are trying to figure out if there are other food intolerances besides gluten and dairy. I'll be interested to hear how you make out.
  2. Jail/prison

    I work for the Department of Corrections in my state....no gluten free diet, no exceptions.
  3. Chronic Nausea

    Nearest we can tell, she is gluten free - shampoo, toothpaste, makeup, shower soap, medication...have no reason for the gastric dumping, no surgeries, gall bladder fine, all vitamin levels good, a lot of work for someone who was not diagnosed with celiac. Her doc is stumped by the unrelenting nausea. We are eliminating corn syrup and sugar. I am worried because her intense workouts begin this week. She frequently "bottoms out" in the middle of a workout. Trying to find something for her to eat mid-workout that won't make her throw up!. Thanks for any advice.
  4. Chronic Nausea

    My daughter has chronic nausea. She is gluten intolerant (does not have celiac), lactose intolerant, has gastric dumping syndrome and is hyperthyroid. She is a college athlete. We are extremely careful with her diet and don't know what else to look for as causes for the nausea. She takes zofran which takes the edge off the nausea, but the nausea is getting really difficult to handle. She has been gluten free for 16 months. Nausea is generally not one of her reactions to being glutened. At this point we are assuming another food allergy. Have considered the Paleo diet but don't know how on earth to do that while she travels with the team. Any suggestions as to what else to look for? Thank you.
