Help I'm Feeling Terrible

4 posts in this topic

Sorry if this is in the wrong forum. I just need to tell someone. I feel terrible and I am holding my stomach and thats not helping. This is the first time since going gluten free that I have felt this bad. I have been keeping a food diary for the last couple of weeks. I haven't been having milk except in my coffee (very little) then last night I made corn bread needed 1 cup of milk and other things. I made a pot of pinto beans with 1 onion salt pork and some season salt and thats it usuaslly it never bothers me, but I felt a little bloated and I ate it on top of my cornbread. The last time I made the beans I did not make cornbread. Then this am I made a omelete with organic cheese and sour cream and a little milk in my eggs. The cheese and sour cream never bother me as I eat these alot in taco's. I think maybe I had to much milk in the last day. I had to run to the bathroom and I hadn't had to do that lately either. Now I'm sad that I made my self sick. Maybe there was gluten I didn't clean up good enough. I think I will go clean out the silverware drawer I saw a bunch of crumbs in there. Heck I going to scrub down my whole kitchen. Thanks for letting me vent. I guess I will start all over.

I forget that I had taquitoes at my moms when I was there yesterday, I read the label maybe I missed something, I know it said carmel coloring and I have avoid that ingredient since Aug because i read that that shouldn't be a problem. Maybe thats the problem who knows?

Question? Can a person be intolerant to milk and not cheeses and sour cream or did I gluten myself somewhere along the line? :(

Ok I really blew it. I now know why I am sick this am It started last night with a little bloating. Than today with cramping and the big D. Well I took my mother shopping yesterday and I remember that she needed FLOUR so without even thinking about it I picked it up and put in the basket, went to her house and ate a little food not even realizing that I had picked up the FLOUR. Well I can tell you that will never happen again. Usually her in house support person does all of this. Mom ny had 2 strokes 2 yrs ago this Feb, but she is ok not great but ok. Anyway thanks for letting me vent.

I am cleaning out my kitchen drawers now.

Wow - I'm amazed that just picking up a bag of flour made you so sick! I am so sorry you got sick, but at least you know what it was caused by.

I will have to remember to be very careful about things like that. My son is gluten free, but I am wondering if he is getting CCed because he is not feeling as good as he was when we first went gluten free. He has been having stomach aches and nausea.... I did throw out my 2 scratched teflon pans, and wooden spoons. I am cooking in a cast iron pan now so maybe that will help...

Anyway, sorry to ramble, I hope you feel better really soon!

Question? Can a person be intolerant to milk and not cheeses and sour cream ...?

someone who is lactose intolerant (milk sugar) but not intolerant to the protein in milk would show that symptom. Cheeses and sour cream have had much of the lactose digested away by the bacteria culture that turns ordinary milk into those products.

I suppose if you are brave you could test that by drinking a glass of "lactaid" milk, if you are ok with that then the next day try a glass of ordinary milk :blink:

I've tried that and decided that I am not lactose intolerant

cheers

    • Hi ch88, You could try going nightshade free to see if it helps your arthritis.  It might help.  The common food nightshades are potatoes, tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, turmeric and paprika.  If you try nightshade free for one month that should be enough time to know if it helps IMHO. Sweet potatoes/yams are ok, as they are not nightshades.
    • Thankyou both of you for your advice, i will have the endoscopy will just have to wait, my blood tests were not hitting the roof with reading but a low to medium result, dont want to be one of them people who have gone gluten free with no need, however i do show typical symptons of celiac but no overwhelming symptons apart from feeling nauseous and crampy at times, and extreme tiredness. There is soooo much to learn
    • You are normal!  All the things you are going through are normal for someone with celiac disease....probably with any life changing illness.  What you need is patience.  Most here take a year to heal or longer due to setbacks on the diet or healing from systemic damage.  The nervous system seems to take the longest.  Ask your doctor to check you for any deficiencies.  No sense guessing what you might need.  It is a common and recommended practice to check for vitamin and mineral deficiencies.   http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/what-common-nutrient-deficiencies-might-an-adult-experience-prior-to-diagnosis/ Once healed, you might not need any supplements, if you eat a wide and varied healthy diet.  
    • Yes!  Ask for the IgA deficiency test!  Why?  Well, your doctor did not even follow protocol.  In order to validate the IgA celiac tests, he should have determined if you are IgA deficient or not. http://www.mayomedicallaboratories.com/it-mmfiles/Celiac_Disease_Diagnostic_Testing_Algorithm.pdf  I have never tested positive on the IgG tests and only had one positive on the IgA DGP test, but I was not IgA deficient, so my GI knew that my test was valid and I needed an endoscopy to confirm my diagnosis.  You do not know if any of your tests are valid.  You need the IgA test.  It is a control test only in the case of diagnosing celiac disease.  But....some celiacs are low in IgA and that seems to happen more often in celiacs than the general population.   https://www.theatlantic.com/entertainment/archive/2017/07/dunkirk-is-a-stunningly-spare-survival-film/534252/
    • Almost EVERY single celiac expert in the world and/or groups like the U.K./U.S. Gastroenterologist Associations recommend obtaining biopsies for diagnosing celiac disease.  There are some exceptions.  If you are too ill to even risk an endoscopy, your celiac panel is extremely high on several of the celiac tests (this is still debatable), you have long wait times in getting the endoscopy (government health wait times) or you can not afford to get one are all acceptable.   You know your situation and will have to determine what is best based on your doctor's input.   The blood tests are not 100% accurate.  Heck, I tested positive only to a really odd one (the DGP IGA).  I had no noticeable symptoms.  I chose the endoscopy.  I never wanted to doubt my diagnosis as my hubby went Gluten Free some 16 years ago based on the poor advice of two medical doctors.  He got well, but does he really have celiac disease?  He would be the first to say that I have had way more support from family, friends and medical, yes, medical.   I hope this helps.  Best to research like you are doing so that you feel comfortable and committed.
