I'm listening too...I'm just a little slow to respond. :P

I get all those symptoms you described but they're not related to gluten.

I think my symptoms are from having a bacteria overgrowth and candida overgrowth which I didnt get diagnosed with until a few weeks ago. My symptoms are worse after eating. Some days it doesnt matter what I eat...I feel sick. Other days are better. I'm on a restricted diet.

Maybe you have other food intolerances??

Hi, I feel the same way when I have anything sweet or potatoes. I think it is a blood sugar rise. I also get really hot--lasts for about 15-20 minutes. Do you get that? Anyone out there get that or am I just plain weird?

Does this happen when you have dinner or does it happen after any meal

Because if it happens after a larger meal where you mix a flesh food with a carbohydrate it takes a long time for you body to break something like that down. (ie: steak and potatoes; rice and chicken) It is harder for the body to break this combination of food down becasue both of those foods require a different enzyme then the other in order to break down. Actually if you do end up eating this combination of foods, the food usually ends up spoiling in your stomach and that is what makes people sick

A combination of food like this takes about 6-8 hrs. to empty from the stomach. As apposed to eating chicken and vegtables which does not take as long to break down and it is alot easier for your body to break donw not making you as tired....takes about 2-4 hrs.

I hope that this has helped, if you would like me to expand a little bit more just let me know :D

    • In Austin, Wildwood Bakehouse and Wilder Wood Restaurant are totally gluten free.  I had the chicken fried steak and gravy and onion rings!!!  Awesome!!!  
    • Hi there I have this exact same thing.. however I don’t have celiac that I know of.. I found this when google searching for what the heck is wrong with my face.  I was wondering if you ever found out.. or if it just went away. Thanks
    • I have read the newbie 101 and have been careful about reading labels. I'm the only one that's gluten free in my household, so they could be contaminating me. I was eating gluten for 6 weeks after my blood test because it took that long to get an official diagnosis and my GP told me to still be eating it for the tests to be accurate. It was probably too soon to retest, but the test was accidentally ordered by the lab. I have been having an increase in joint pain over the last couple months and my rheumatologist ordered lab work. The lab saw the celiac panel had been ordered, but didn't see results so they added it on because they thought it still needed done.  My gut issues are starting to get better, but I'm thinking the joint pain might have been from the celiacs because all of the rheumatoid tests came back normal for the first time in twenty years.
    • Hi and Welcome to the Forum.  I am glad that you are here! As with a lot of things in life, try not to compare yourself to other people. You are trying to be the best version of yourself - not Jill, Annie, or Maya.  People make a lot of foolish decisions in the world and it does not mean that you should do it too.  Also, many people are gluten free for a lot of reasons that aren't celiac. One of my best friends has gluten sensitivity but not celiac.  He eats a lot of food that I won't touch due to possible cross contamination which he doesn't worry about too much.  Be true to yourself and keep your self healthy.  It is so hard, but it's better than getting sick! I hate not being able to partake in yummy food at parties, but I have learned what junk food I can eat.  I will make sure to buy some tortilla chips or Fritos for picnics.  I freeze gluten-free cupcakes to eat when we celebrate birthday parties (I can just take one out of the freezer and go).  I make sure to take a dish to share to potlucks.  I ask permission at restaurants and parties to bring my own food - no one has ever said no, and when there is a time to celebrate, I splurge on something I really like.  Fortunately, there are a lot of gluten-free foods that I really like. Do i miss pizza and really good burger? YES! And sometimes, I still feel awkward, but life is so much more than food.
    • If Small was going to get rid of anything in a takeaway meal, it would be the bread with all its dreaded gluten. However, many scientists and nutritionists argue gluten is not a problem for people who do not have celiac disease or who are not "gluten-sensitive". Massey University senior lecturer in food ...
