No More Grains Either

So I have now been off of gluten for 10 months and 8 months ago I had to get off of corn,soy, dairy.  That said my diet has been pretty much chicken, vegetables, and 2 fruits (apple and banana).  I also became salicylate sensitive which made eating anything else impossible.  As of last week I am not tolerating grains.  My belly started getting distended in October with certain foods but now it's distended with anything I eat.  I still have daily headaches/migraines.  I am on pain meds around the clock, anti inflammatory injections and muscle injections at night due to the horrific pain in my head.  I now notice if I eat grains my muscles and bones hurt to the point I don't want to get out of bed and the fatigue is atrocious.  Also grains have started making my mind feel crazy.  It sounds so weird but it's the truth.  It's hard to explain but  there is a direct relation with my intestine, grains, and my mind.  My pain management doctor does not believe this is the cause of any of my problems.  Although out of the 25 or so symptoms I had before going gluten free have resolved, I still have a few, all neurological.  WHen I go to the ER, Tordol shot is what takes away the pain, it's an anti inflammatory medicine.  My doctor started me on Cymbalta this week and I felt like I was on serious drugs and could not function.  I literally could not drive on the 4th day.  Will this end?  Why does it seem I am not going up hill?  I have only drank water and coffee for 10 months also. My biopsy showed nothing and blood test negative for Celiac disease although he only took 2 samples.  But it wasn't until I got off of gluten that I started to get better, bed ridden for 1 year and near death, really.  So why the grains all of a sudden? I just don't understand.  Thank you for any input!

Drop coffee if you haven't so far. It can irritate a healing gut.

Thanks did not know that.  With insomnia the last 6 months, I've been drinking about 3 pots to help me going through the day.

When you start reacting to more and more foods it is often a sign of leaky gut syndrome.  This means that the membrane that lets digested food into the blood stream is not working properly and is letting partially digested food through.  Your autoimmune system reacts to this partially digested food as being "non-self" and creates antibodies toward it, and there is another food you are reacting to.  This is usually not a permanent loss, but healing the gut is key.  I don't know what supplements you are taking, but if you are not already doing so I wold recommend a regime of probiotics, digestive enzymes and L-glutamine (to restore the good flora in your gut, supplement the enzymes your pancreas is producing to improve your digestion, and heal the gut).

Is tea OK?

Yes the Naturopath that I saw did say I had leaky gut back in June.  I just started being able to tolerate probiotics 4 weeks ago.  I have been on Verdezyme for a couple of months and I used to take L-glutamine per Naturopath but I quit a while back because he said it was healed by now.  I'll start it again. Thank You!

    • Sorry to hear about your no meat, Ennis. It sucks his celiac disease messes with people in different ways. Matt I was living on sweet potatoes but now they bloat me, which is odd. Avocado's would be to much fat, I think. I'm three weeks in today, and the past few days my C has improved. So that's some good news. I do know I need to stop worrying about the weight loss. So easy to Google and worry. If I could get back to lifting weights and reclaim my shoulders I'd be more calm and less stressed. For now I'll just have to get used to being lean. Anyone up for a symptom swap. My off on fatigue has shown up. I will swap for headaches brain fog. R Be well all
    • I hope you don't have to wait too long for the results. A false negative is always possible since we have a lot of intestine but it sounds like you have a good doctor who took lots of biopsies.  Since she had a high positive it would be a good idea for her to do the diet strictly for a few months no matter the results. I hope you get some clear answers and that she is feeling better soon.
    • I did not see anyone give ideas about milk-based gravies or sauces yet, but I found a great solution by trial and error because so many recipes I love call for "cream of mushroom" or "cream of chicken" soup. Just melt a little butter with diced onion and put in some rice flour with a bit of milk and heat until bubbly. Add more milk (or chicken/beef stock) a little at a time until you have the amount you need. Salt/pepper as desired. Green bean casserole is still possible! Yay! Crush up some potato chips or those gluten free french fried onions that Aldi sells and it's just like old times before gluten free days:) There's really nothing else to it but if you feel like you need to watch someone do it before you are confident enough to try it on your own, you can see our family's simple little recipe here. Nothing fancy, just some free encouragement...  
    • So my type 1 daughter had her biopsy today and the gi afterwards noticed some redness/inflammation (gastritis?) but also saw the villi.  I guess I was expecting that with her blood test result of her transglutinminase ttg iga of over 100 that she would definitely see some damage.  Her symptoms seem to be ramping up as well.  She took multiple biopsies in several locations and now we wait.  Do you think that there is a chance that with a very positive blood test result she could have a negative biopsy?  My daughter was saying that she would like the positive biopsy to know for sure and to make it easier to stick to being gluten free forever.    This is really hard waiting
    • Avocados are packed with good fats. Aldi and Lidl often have them on offer.  You may be able to tolerate sweet potatos if you're looking for a carb. They're better for you than potatoes, lower glycaemic index and more nutrients. Ask the pharmacy if they can order in the folic acid variant your after or order it online? All the best! Matt
