Ok, ok, so you're probably all sick of seeing my new posts, but so many questions!!

I know that many of you have suffered from fatigue or other various things not necessarily listed on the items of symptoms for Celiac Disease. However, aside from Fatigue, I occassionaly notice that I run out of breath pretty quickly..running up two flights of stairs.

Now take note this may all be due to my lack of exercise in the past few months. (As running, stir the bowels which causes abomdinal pain..AHH!!) so I think my lungs just may be out of shape.

Anyone else suffer from this? Its great I've lost weight, but I'd rather be back to exercising and do it that way..

Thanks!

:huh:

I have fatigue too but not sure if it's related to Celiac or something else. I am sure Celiac could cause fatigue as your body could be malnorished and fighting against itself.

I hope you begin to feel better soon!

I'm not certain how long you've been on a gluten-free diet, but I noticed in the beginning that by cutting out the breads, pastas, cereals, etc. (easy carbs) that I was more tired than usual too. Exercising became very difficult. What I could do easily before, become a struggle, etc. Once I began to eat more normally, this seemed to go away. Try snacking on something like nuts (I love cashews! Lol!) in between meals to keep your metabolism up but not cause energy spikes (like chips and candy do.)

Just a suggestion. B)

I was still excercising before i finally went gluten-free and I also noticed that before the diagnosis, in the span of two months I went from dancing everyday practically allday, I could barely run on the treadmill for 5 minutes without heaving. Then it all started to go downhill really fast. Fatigue so that i could not even lift my arms and sometimes i thought i did not have enough energy to stand up.

According to Dr. Cynthia Rudert, fatigue is the MOST COMMON symptom. Not diarrhea -- fatigue. It was my first one.

My shortness of breath continued to persist until I dropped dairy. I think dairy effects my lungs.

I have the same tightness in my chest. It started in march with shortness of breath, numb feeling in face, chest tightness,muscle weakness and the feeling of a fluttering heart. My husband called 911. The ER said it was anxiety. This as been going on since 3-20-04, gave me a relaxer and sent me home. At a follow up visit with my own MD, I was walking down the hall to leave his office and my body went limp. I was admitted for observation. All the MRI,CT, EEG came out normal. Pseudo seizures is what they suspected along w/depression.With this I did not agree. The one thing that was found was that I was aneimic. I was active at work, H.S. special ed, gym 4x's week, and having a normal active life with my husband and 3 kids. I postponed my monthly dues to the gym because I was on the treadmill and stepped off the side and went down.

I diagnoised w/celiac disease in july.

I was taken by ambulance again when I tryed to return to work after summer break. I lasted 3 days. This SUX!! I want my active life back. Sweeping the floor is enough at times to do my in. The doctor told me after the spell that I can not drive anymore. I am 39 yrs old. My kids are 3, 7, 14 yrs. I hurts me to tell them we can't plan something later on the day or the next, because one minute i'm fine up and talking, the next minute starting to pass out. OH MY!! I did not mean to carry on and feel sorry for myself this longggggg. Thank you anyways for listening.

I feel like my thoughts are all over the place. I hope this all makes since.

I just posted on "What were your first symptoms? I suffered with utter fatigue, abnormal heart rhythms, breathlessness, etc. Didn't get any relief until I went to a hemotologist doctor and was diagnosed with extreme anemia. I had to get an iron fusion which was the beginning of my recovery. All my problems were related to Celiac Sprue. I never had any bowel problems.

    • Yeah I have 2 stationary pedal bikes. I use one on the desk sometimes while watching a show and work out my arms. I keep one under the desk and pedal on it for hours a day, really helps with my restless leg issues and stress (just gotta keep moving or I start feeling like a panic attack is coming on trapped by life like a rat in a cage. If you need to know were to find the ground cocoa nibs look up crio bru, they sell it as a coffee replacement for $23 for 1.5lbs they have different origin and different roast levels so you can get different flavored cocoa nibs I get several and mix them up.
    • Yeah the histamine thing hit home a bit for me, as it mentioned everyone has their upper limits on it...explains why green canned fresh tomatoes fine...overly ripe sweet ones....instant puking, and why I have to really limit anything the citric acid, lemon, lime, garlic, onion, etc to very small amounts. Sorta funny how that works. like everything has a invisible number and if they add up to above my limit I am puking Makes eating annoying sometimes lol.  OH bit of a thought, I RARELY make almond milk cause it leaves a almond paste behind that I only have one use for and if sales at the bakery are bad I am better off just buying the stuff at the store and drinking in moderation. ANYWAY I use the almond paste mixed with coconut flour, left over almond butter batches, xylitol, apple sauce, and a tsp of a extract of choice to make the almond butter mini muffins for my bakery. They are a bit of a product of recycled foods lol. Taste great, super moist, grain free, mostly sugar free, and I can eat them no problems...they also freeze for months.   Love making them with our pirate butter (butter rum), Cheese cake butter (dairy free cheese cake extract in the almond butter) or any of the others for that matter.  
    • Did you get any of your vitamin and mineral levels checked for deficiencies?  You don't have to be Celiac to develop deficiencies.   Peripheral neuropathy may be caused by deficiencies of B12, copper, vitamin E, B6, B1 https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4208100/ Not dreaming can be caused by B6 deficiency. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/11883552 Tachycardia may be caused by deficiencies of B1, B12, vitamin C http://www.livestrong.com/article/503879-vitamin-deficiencies-racing-heart/ Ehlers Danlos can be helped by calcium, magnesium, vitamin C, and others https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/15607555 And that funky color of your colon, melanomas coli, vitamin E deficiency https://www.researchgate.net/publication/22087649_Ceroid_enteropathy_and_vitamin_E_deficiency IMHO, doctors would rather treat the symptoms than cure the real problems. Hope this helps.

    • Absolutely nothing to apologise for Awol. I'm sorry for getting on my sugar hobby horse. In any case I'm a dreadful hypocrite, cutting out fruit juice but still indulging cravings for gluten-free cheesecakes and the like I wish I had some advice for you. Bone broth helped me, I think it can help leaky gut, maybe worth a try?  Dr Fasano's diet could be another option?
