This is my first post

 

Hi I have been struggling/frustrated with my health for the past two years now. I feel like I've seen every doctor out there and no one has been able to give me an answer. To start off I have had ever changing symptoms over the past 2 years, it all started and still seems to circulate around fatigue. Up until this last year the symptoms have taken on some neurological traits like hand tremors, hand circulation/tingiling, eye/face twitches, and feet tingling. The one thing I’ve usually been able to notice is these symptoms tend to be worse after I eat, (The other night I ate a burger had two beers and felt super bloated)  

 

I have had my blood tested for celiac and it came out negative but many things I have read say that you can still be gluten sensitive. My main point of this post is just wondering if anyone else has had symptoms like me and tested negative for celiac before I attempt to go gluten free.

 

My main symptoms are

  • Fatigue
  • Hand Tremors
  • Leg Tremors
  • Hand/Leg Tingling/circulation
  • Exercise resistance
  • Stomach Bloating at times
  • Eye Twitches/Facial Tremors
  • Sometimes in the afternoon at work the fatigue will hit so bad its hard to focus my eyes and keep them open
  • Teeth Chattering constantly

 

 

Any posts/opinions help

 

 

Thanks so much

Frustrated C. :wacko:

Hi Frustrated,

 

I hope you figure things out. Did you have your nutrient levels checked?

 

First I am celiac.  I have experienced shakes.  That was solved by a magnesium supplement. There may be other reasons for the shakes, but that was my reason.  I also had twitching eye at times.  I haven't had this recently and do not know why it is gone.

 

I have trouble with numbness which I am trying to solve with Vitamin B.  I have read this can also be perceived as pinprick sensations or tingling.

 

Fatigue or fogginess was my greatest symptom.  Bloating was another of my symptoms for 30+ years.

 

Have you started a gluten free diet?  Did you have all of the celiac panel tests done?  I would suggest you look into the gluten free angle further.

 

Let us know how it goes.

 

Diana

Welcome to the board.

 

I can't add any personal experiences except to say some of your symptoms are similar to mine (but I had the positive blood test).  If you give this some time, I am sure some serological negative celiacs or NCGI's will chime in on their experiences.

 

From what I have learned, Non-Celiac Gluten Intolerance has pretty much the same symptoms as celiac disease minus the small intestinal villi destruction. If you are going to give gluten-free eating a try, please give it at minimum 3 months (6 is better) as the symptoms that are not intestinal in nature tend to take longer to improve (I still have some issues at almost 1 year gluten-free).

 

Have you had your blood sugar tested for diabetes or hypoglycemia? I used to get the shakes when I was undiagnosed but I'm unsure if it was caused by celiac disease or from hypoglycemia (from a diet higher in starches). It could be something to consider.

 

Best wishes.

As of today I have started the Gluten Free diet to see where it goes. After a little bit on the diet I think I plan on seeing a dietician to figure out what type of vitamens I will need to take (I understand going Gluten-Free can limit ones intake of certain vitamens.

 

1Desperateladysaved - Yes I get the pinprick and numbness sensation. My hands also model. change colors, get spotty do yours do that?

 

Nvsmom - I have tested my blood sugar on and off for 3 months and never found it to be lower than what is considered average.

 

Thanks for the support!.

Going gluten free (gluten-free) won't make you vitamin deficient.  Most people who have intestinal damage may need additional vitamins and supplements until they heal.  As long as you eat whole natural foods and vary your diet, you won't have a problem.  Stay clear of processed gluten-free foods -- they're the ones with little fiber and nutrition (i.e. cookies, breads, etc.)

I tested negative too. But after doing two gluten challenges where I ended up vomiting for 12 hours each time, my doctor just said, "avoid gluten." I went 100% gluten free a year ago Feb. By April I had tons of energy and felt a million times better.  I had all sorts of odd symptoms that disappeared. I strongly believe that you have to eat good food. I never eat processed anything. I make all my meals. I also started following a primal diet which I found easier to follow. I never eat out either. It isn't easy but it is more of an inconvenience than anything. Once you start to feel better you realize you never want to feel bad again!

    • ennis how do you test for Candida overgrowth did I have to see a functional doctor or do medical doctors test. It would seem like a plausible  explanation to my symptoms. 
    • Hello everyone.    Ive been diagnosed with celiac for about 4 years now. It's been a rough road but I feel like I've gotten as good as I can get with eliminating gluten completely from my diet.    I am an undergraduate student with a driven passion to become a nurse (I'm a guy, I know). I love the field and can't wait to help people every day.   As some of you may know, the nursing curriculum is extremely intense. I have an very strict routine and schedule where I can handle the rigor of my classes, work, and fitness (I am really into health and fitness, it's the best release from the stresses induced from school. I get 6 hours of sleep on the dot and manage to work, volunteer, study, and eat decently well. I love my life when it's on this routine and am so happy and social with people around me. I'm making progress, I'm moving forward, making something of my life.    But lately I've been suffering. I've been getting sick a lot more often from what seems to be random uncontrollable cross contamination from various things. When I get sick, my routine gets all messed up, I fall off my schedule, and things start going downhill. I like to call it the "celiac rut" I get stuck in. When I'm sick I can't work out, without working out I get extremely stressed and can't sleep. Without sleep I can't focus on my school and you know, the slippery slope that pretty much leads to lots of depression and anxiety.    This. Absolutely. Sucks. I fall behind in school and have trouble focusing on my priorities because I need more sleep to heal, and I can't go to class or the gym when I'm throwing up or spending hours on the toilet. Plus the mental symptoms turn me into an angry antisocial gluten monster. So that's always fun.   I really don't know how to manage this. I feel like at this rate I won't be able to keep up with my daily life. I physically can not handle the lifestyle I have when I get sick, and it piles up because when I get better I'm like weeks behind in material in my classes.    I am am normally a super happy outgoing guy, I love being the person I truly am. But gluten is singlehandedly tearing my life apart and the depression is starting to take it's toll.    I honestly dont know what to get out of posting this. I just hope that someone has some sort of trick or secret to get through this awful "celiac rut."
    • Hello, I have the same issue with the hair loss a few months after going gluten free, I have been getting the b12 shot and was also told to take Vit D and Calcium, Also told it was because my guts are still not happy after all i put them thru, It's very upsetting losing the amount of hair I have, my right side of my head is about 65% thinner then the left...Was told it see a Diet person right away. 
    • There is sort of a detox/withdrawal thing for the first few weeks for most. Keep a food diary, often after a glutening a new intolerance will creep up for awhile. Sort of your body associating another food with gluten, and or it just being picky while damaged. Write down everything you eat, how you fix it, seasonings etc. Change up the diet, and look for patterns.  My own gut is being picky today and had D after 2 meals so I am rotating up and narrowing down the culprit tomorrow myself....only see 4 common things in my food dairy.
    • Thanks for your reply. I'm currently grain free, although I ended up making kitchary because I needed something of substance in my stomach. Seems to have helped. Some other symptoms coming on strong, so just hoping I have some answers soon, to make sure I'm at least on the right path!
