What are you eating? Are you also cooking for gluten eaters? Does this happen everywhere or only at home? Do you eat out a lot? Do you eat a lot of mainstream supposedly gluten free food like for example doritos or corn chips? You are early in on the diet, have you cut out dairy products, all dairy not just lactose? Have you been checked for casein intolerance? What you are experienceing after eating sounds like a gluten reaction, have you deglutened your house, your hand lotions, your soaps, your pet foods, your can opener?

Thats your answer. You don't need to yell at me again. Many of us take a long time to realize how gluten free we really aren't. I was trying to help you. Don't worry it will not happen again.

this exact same thing has been happening to me! it is so frustrating. my doctor told me it was possibly reactive hypoglycemia, but she wasn't sure. my glucose tests are always very normal. the only way i have found to get rid of it is if i cut out all carbs and starches. i eat meat and veggies, that's about it. i am down to 105 lbs. though which sucks - i would love to gain some weight back. the doc said it could be temporary since our bodies are shocked by the sudden change in diet.

i really feel for you, i know how crappy this is.

Its tough to work after i eat lunch. I have lost 15 lbs in 4 months, and i wasnt fat before. Maybe as we heal it will get less severe. Let me know if you get better.

I believe that Ravenwoodglass was sincerely trying to help you by asking questions off the top of her head that we all needed to ask ourselves early on in the diet. :)

I know that I developed additional food intolerances after I went gluten-free. There is soy in some of the foods you eat every day. My suggestion would be to go back to just the natural, whole foods and when you (hopefully) feel better, try adding the other foods one at a time.

Did you notice any difference in the way you felt when you first went gluten-free? I ask because if you felt better at first, but then began to get these symptoms lately, it could very well be another intolerance.

yeah, i have the same problem with trying to work after eating lunch and feeling so lousy and dizzy. i did talk to another woman who had something very similar and she got better after one year. she ate pretty much meat and veggies for a year and then it finally turned around. she thought it was due to something related to the liver. a year sure seems like a long time, though, with everyday being so hard.

please let me know if you find anything that helps, too.

It seems like all of us have more than one issue going on at once. I have been meaning to post something but have been putting it off. I get really confused with a lot of my issues sometimes, but I just had to respond to this thread. I have been dealing with problems for over 10 years now and have never been diagnosed with celiac but I KNOW there is a problem with gluten. I also have a problem with my thyroid and a dairy allergy. I just recently went to the doctor again (I had given up for over 6 years) and am about to run more tests. My new doctor is going to do a test for stomach emptying because I have nausea and bloating and burping after meals. He is looking into gatroparesis which I guess is a slow stomach emptying. I've been doing research and for the last week I have been eating more frequent and smaller meals and have been careful not to each too much fat. I also have been being careful about not eating ANY dairy. And I have really started to feel much better. It just seems that it's never just celiac alone. There are other issues that need to be dealt with as well. So look into other intolerances/allergies. When I was feeling sorry for myself about having to deal with such a limited diet I would cheat and eat dairy and ended up feeling bad for it. Unfortunately, by the time we all realize that celiac is the problem, there are other issues that must be dealt with. Also, since I stopped eating all dairy, I can smell again, and I don't wake up with all this mucus. And I am much more depressed about giving up dairy than I am giving up gluten.

My reply to Ravenwood came off rude, but wasnt intended to be. Sometimes things sound different whe you read them than when you are writing (no body language or tone of voice) I sent her a message expaining the confusion. Ireally appreciate everyones help. I would be lost without you guys. Thanks. How do i get tested for other food allergies. Anything besides enterolab? I dont a lot of cash right now.

I understand how that can happen, and I'm glad you contacted her :)

True allergies need to be tested by an allergist. They use skin-prick or blood tests.

For intolerances, the best way to test is by elimination diet. Some of the more common foods to suspect are dairy, soy, and corn. I would start there, unless you have another food that you suspect.

Take your diet down to the foods you know are ok--things like meats, fruits, veggies, potatoes, olive oil, etc. These are not written in stone, it's what agrees with you. Don't include packaged foods or things with lots of ingredients.

Every 5 days, introduce a suspect food. See if over the next few days you have any sort of reaction. It's helpful to keep a food log to keep track of what you ate and how you felt.

It could be a migraine. I get a lot of pressure behind my eyes after I eat certain things...I suspect, for me, it could be msg and/or sulphite intolerance (or intolerance to other foods?)Kinnikinnick Wolfsbrand almond cookies give me an instant headache along with bloating...because they are made with pea protein and starch, that's likely one of my triggers. I also sometimes get a migraine from exposure to bright, flourescent lighting or a combination of hot temperature, bright light and motion (part of my motion sickness.)

Just a suggestion...

You can start by cutting out the soy milk and replacing it with rice milk. Might help, might not...just an idea.

You can also check the ingredients of the bolded items for things that might bother you, and maybe you'll see a pattern or an ingredient to question (it is also important to note that all Kraft products contain msg, even if it is not on the label). Preservatives and artificial addatives in those products make me feel bloated and fatigued, so I like to make that suggestion, but I realize some people are just lucky and don't react to those kinds of processed foods.

I hope you find the answer soon! :)

How about eating your salad with a home made dressing, at least for a few days? I usually sprinkle some olive oil, lemon juice, salt and herbs on my salad. I'm sure other people have more recipes for different types of dressing. That way you avoid all the additives and stuff that bought dressings always seem to have.

I don't know, sorry. I'm casein intolerant - hopefully someone else will chime in and let you know.

You could make it from scratch. A google search came up with many recipes. I've always had luck with Canadian Living for great tasting recipes: http://www.canadianliving.com

This has been happening to me for the past few weeks. I'm a self-diagnosed celiac. It's been 1 1/2 yrs. My life has drastically changed yet as of January I have felt my best. So, I think my villi are healed. But now I'm dealing with this nausea thing and my doctor also mentioned the hypoglycemia. But I never heard of reactive hypoglycemia like the other post said. Maybe that's it. But for me, I hate the nausea. I rarely get the dizziness unless I have eaten something made in a wheat facility so I try to avoid that. And I noticed that sometimes things claim to be gluten-free but maybe they are only gluten-free when you eat just the recommended serving. (LIke gummy bears that I buy at Walmart - if I eat too many, I'll crash - even though they claim gluten-free.) <_<

    • Certainly seems likely if those levels dropped due to gluten removal. I am just curious, when you had the scope eventually, were you eating it?  Are you feeling any better? 
    • 1. Double checked your antibodies? 2. Those of us with celiac have issues with some nutrients for various reasons, being either we can not absorb enough of them from our foods due to damage to intestines or the new gluten-free foods you changed to are non fortified and do not contain the nutrients you which is especially true if you eat a bunch of processed gluten-free foods. A combination of both of these can lead to extreme fatigues. I found taking Magnesium, and B-Vtitamin supplementation helps (Liquid Health Stress & Energy along with Neurological support same company, Liquid version is easy to absorb and no pills). Look into KAL Nutritional Yeast also, I use it to make condiment cheese sauces, toppings, blend it with egg whites. it contains many nutrients we are lacking and is a great supplement/food to have in your diet. 3, Look into what cycling lady mentioned, this could also be a issues. 4. Had your blood sugar checked?
    • I'm going to play Captain NCGS to Posterboy's Professor Pellagra (No doubt the Marvel and DC Cinematic Universes will soon be bidding for our services) and say that regardless of the blood test results, this: is exhibit one. You have a reaction to the gluten free diet. That doesn't necessarily eliminate fodmaps or issues with other components of wheat, but it's at least suggestive and the main reason I think you need to get back on it and give it a longer go. In fact, as I hinted at in the previous post, I'd be doing my 'goodbye gluten' top 10 croissant and bagel bucket list because I don't think you should go back to it simply based on exhibit one. It's messing with you in a way that it shouldn't. I had sciatic back pain for 20 years which I attributed to a disk injury. It was left sided and when bad travelled down my left leg following the sciatic nerve. I had all the scans, treatments, exercises etc. Nothing really worked and it was at times intensely debilitating.  Drum roll... Gluten free diet cured it. My new theory is that gluten related inflammation was localised in that area and it caused the pressure on the nerve. Now why there and not elsewhere? No idea, but it could be inflammation causing your pain? I went for several diabetes tests because I would suddenly become very weak, hungry and I would feel unwell. Weak, hot, light headed, on the verge of passing out. The tests were normal but I knew that I seemingly had a blood sugar issue. Another win for the gluten-free diet.  It sorted the tremors in my hand (begone thoughts of early onset parkinsons or ms) and the nerve twitching under my eye and etc etc. well you get the point. I've said above I sometimes wonder if I'm undiagnosed celiac but there are certain aspects of NCGS which seem to fit me and maybe you too. My digestion stomach etc is much better now but I wouldn't have said before all this that it was particularly bad. I read this http://www.bmj.com/content/345/bmj.e7982 and I have a similar experience that neuro symptoms were more apparent than digestive in the 'classic celiac' model. (more of that sort of thing here though I already sent you the Umberto Volta I think. I would be fascinated if you, your brother and myself were to do the gluten challenge and then take this test: http://www.medicaldaily.com/non-celiac-gluten-insensitivity-blood-test-392850 what the result would be. But you know what, unless the scientists put out a call for more volunteers I won't be doing it. In the search for answers, validation, certainty, it's easy to forget the real goal, feeling better. After several years on the gluten-free diet I feel better. I'm no longer thinking that the next bout of chest pain will be my last minutes on earth. I no longer worry about going blind because half my vision has gone grey, I'm not trembling, I don't have cardiac arrythmia, I don't have rheumatic pain, I don't have crippling back ache like I'm 40 years older, I don't get  faint, dizzy and heart pounding when I stand up,  I don't have brain fog, anxiety, depression (well sometimes!), painful stomach cramps, weird white tongue, rashes on my torso, horrible greasy skin on face, horrible dry peeling scalp, sores on my scalp and neck, white spots on my fingernails, I'm not sweating so much I have to douse myself in antiperspirant, I don't have all this and more and I don't have a letter from a doctor saying I have celiac and I don't give a **** about it. I don't have gluten and as the Godfather of soul would say...  I feel good  Feel good IT. You've done as much as anyone could to find an answer. Maybe there's one around the corner or maybe there'll be one in 5 or 10 years when the likes of Marios Hadjivassiliou, Umberto Volta or Alessio Fassano have completed their research. Or maybe not or never. It's in the 'nice to have' than the essential's for me now. Do the diet, note your symptoms, stay connected with your doctor so that if there is anything that sticks around suggestive of other things you're on top of it, but feel good and focus on that and enjoying life.  All the best!    
    • I think he's right. It's a hard burden at times at any age but there will be particular challenges for your daughter as kids don't want to stick out or have to be continually monitoring things like their food. Check out this advert from a UK retailer. Beware it's so sugary it could probably give a diabetic person a sugar crash! Maybe you could do similar? Just get or make a selection of kid friendly foods but don't say anything about it to your daughter, just everyone go in and start filling their plates.  If she asks you if you've done anything for her you just tell her that she can eat everything on the table. At least this would show both that choice is still available to her and that because everyone is eating the same thing that she won't feel like she's being singled out?
