Is It All In My Head?

6 posts in this topic

Ive been completly gluten-free for 10 days. I am feeling SO much better the last two days. No pain, no constipation, when I lay flat by belly doesn't "poke out". And mentally and emotionally it is on a whole different planet.

Has anyone else had this quick of a lessening of symptoms? Is this just in my head?

Thanks

Jen

It definitely may not be in your head. (Of course, no one can guarantee that! ;-) ) But I saw results nearly as quickly myself, and I know some people have seen very quick improvement as well. Keep it up, and I'm glad you're feeling better! :-)

Very cool! I think it's not in your head since you are not having the gluten. Just keep on staying glutenfree. I know at first I had a promblem with accidents so it's cool that you are feeling so well right away!

Nope, not in your head! That's about the same time it took me to be feeling great :)

Unfortunately, caterers that don't know what they're cooking with have got me feeling pretty awful at the moment :angry: They spend 20 mins explaining how careful they were to do two of the meals gluten-free, and half an hour later I was telling em otherwise...

Jen,

That's great you saw results of being gluten-free so quick, doesn't it motivate you to know that your diet changes are paying off?

I saw big changes within 4 days (no abdominal pain and a little more energy) then by my 7th day I woke up the with vertiually no joint pain and a LOT more energy.

I'm in my 10th week of gluten-free and I can't remember when I have felt this good.

Good luck to you!

Melissa

    • Hi  I live in the US. we use Corn flour and amaranth flour to make roti. There is any other flour to make roti. bcoz amaranth is a little expensive for us. and being punjabi we eat roti a lot and parantha too. so if anyone knows in US. from where we can get flour to make roti on cheap price. or any other website from where we could get all flour on good price.
    • Well, I would strongly recommend seeing a doctor (maybe an endo if your PCP is not thyroid savvy, but I have always used my PCP).   Are you sure you had the hypo-related thyroid antibodies tests (3 of them)?     It looks like you are hypothyroid.  You probably need thyroid replacement, but I am not a doctor!    Thyroid replacement will help you feel better.  My TSH is best at around a 1.  Anything over a 5 and I am wearing flannel PJ's and napping.  Ask for a physical examination for your thyroid to check for nodules and enlargement too.  You can be hypo, but not have Hashi's.  Get that endo appointment, if you can.    
    • On a gluten-free diet, my low iron resolved within months with supplementation.    I would ask your doctor to re-check your ferritin levels and antibodies at the three month mark since you can not judge by symptoms.  I would also ask for a bone scan.  I fractured two vertebrae doing NOTHING two months into my celiac disease diagnosis.  Found out I had osteoporosis.   I would think that if you were dairy intolerant, you would experience all the classic symptoms of gas, bloating, etc.  If you are not, I would not worry about dairy.  Not all celiacs are dairy intolerant.   Go eat some cheese!   Follow-up testing recommendations: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/how-often-should-follow-up-testing-occur/
    • Elk is gluten free like all unprocessed meat.  Okay, everyone said that, but extra validation never hurt.    You should ask who butchered it though.    Lots of my family members hunt (yes, they work and are dedicated to the National/Federal Parks and Land, but culling herds is a necessity in time of drought and over population).  Their butcher is local and does not use gluten in their seasonings (e.g. Sausage).  So ask to be safe.  
    • Studies have shown that saturated fats are not unhealthy and are an important part of our diet for hormonal health, don't avoid fats only because they are saturated because they are safe and usually healthy.
