Nausea After A Massage
0

8 posts in this topic

I don't think this is Celiac related but I was wondering if anyone has had any experience with it or knows what might be going on. My fiance's sister took me with her to get a massage yesterday and I felt quite unwell afterwards. I told the Massage Therapist about the gluten issue and brought my own lotion so I don't think it was Celiac related.

I started feeling nauseated near the end of the massage and felt sick and dizzy all the way home (thankfully I wasn't driving). I threw up a few times right after I got home and had a headache and felt queasy and sleepy for the rest of the day. I spent most of the day lying on the couch and couldn't eat much.

Could the massage have caused this and does anyone know why it would have. The massage felt great but it wasn't worth feeling hung over for the rest of the day.

I have had massage therapists tell me to drink plenty of water before and after a massage (especially deep tissue) because the increased blood flow to the muscles and working them can release toxins from the muscles and make you nauseated. Don't know how true it is, but one of the medical types should chime in soon.

I don't know what could have caused it, but last time I got a massage I got pretty sick also. About 1/2 way through I had to have her stop because I was near fainting and thought I was going to throw up - and I felt pretty sick the rest of the day. I had gotten several massages before this one, so I don't know what happened during this one. She did tell me that if you are dehydrated, the massage can make you feel ill. Hopefully someone can chime in with more insight, but just wanted to let you know it has happened to me too!

Ditto both of the above. Must pre-hydrate and re-hydrate well afterwards.

If any kind of bug is brewing in you, it will surface during or after massage.

Do not get massage if you have a cold or feel questionable. Not saying that you did, it's just a general warning. Lots of toxins are released during massage.

It's true, a massage can loosen up toxins and make you feel bad. Drink lots of water. It might not be a bad idea to get one once in a while to help clear out some of the toxins that are apparently lingering in your system.

I get them periodically for this reason. I also drink Yogi detox tea.

Yes...toxins are mobilized during a massage. The fact that you were so affected by it indicates that your body needed some help in eliminating those toxins from your body.

Alot of water could have helped with that. Also, taking some chlorella helps bind the toxins (especially heavy metals) so that they are able to be excreted rather than reabsorbed and redistributed (which is what causes those symptoms).

Ack, toxins -- that sounds scary. Sometimes it's hard to tell if something is making me sick, or if it's a blood sugar issue or just my stomach being sensitive.

But from all of your responses, it sounds like it was a toxin issue. I will definitely have to hyper-hydrate if/when I have another massage. I wonder why my soon-to-be sister in law didn't feel sick like me. I've never thought I was a particularly toxic person. So if I have another massage and make sure I drink enough water, will I pee out some toxins.

I've never thought I was a particularly toxic person.

Actually, everyone is pretty toxic...its the price we pay living on this planet. My Dr. told me that there were studies done where they took random people of the street for testing. The only requirement was that they had to be in good health (no obvious symptoms).

They were tested for a long list of toxic substances...heavy metals, pesticides, PCB, Dioxin, environmental toxins, etc. The results showed that *everyone* had these substances in their body...and in large amounts.

The people in the study were still healthy....meaning that so far their immune systems were dealing with the toxic load pretty well. Its usually when people are having chronic symptoms that their toxic burden is getting to be too high. Some of us are better at detoxing than others....genetics are a big factor in that.

If someone is developing more and more allergies/sensitivities...its a good indication that they are not handling the toxic load very well.

    • Thanks for that.  Will get her tested for deficiencies.  I did take her to a naturopath and get her on a bunch of vitamins, but she never was tested via bloods, so will get on to that, thanks  
    • Hi Could a mod please move this post:   and my reply below to a new thread when they get a chance? Thanks! Matt
    • Hello and welcome Firstly, don't worry about it but for ease your post (and hopefully my reply) will probably be moved to its own thread. That will make it easier for others to see it and reply and also help Galaxy's own thread here on track and making sense.  The antibodies that the celiac tests look for can drop very quickly, so... maybe? Celiac is difficult to test for, there are different tests and sometimes someone doesnt test on one but does on the other. If you can get a copy of the tests and post it here the community may be able to help explain the results.  It may have shown damage to the villi, the little tendrils in your intestine that help you extract nutrients from your food. Celiac is one, but not the only, way in which they can get damaged leading to a vast number of potential symptoms and further making diagnosis a tricky proposition. Definitely, there's a connection. Here's a page that explains it in detail: https://stomachachefree.wordpress.com/2012/03/21/liver-disease-in-celiacs/ Fantastic  It sounds as if your doctors were happy to diagnose you on the basis of the endoscopy? It may be then that you've found your answer. I hope so, you've clearly had a rotten and very scary time.  I'm sure with the positive reaction to the diet you want to go on and get healthy, but I would only add that you should discuss this with your doctors, because they may want to exclude other potential causes if they've not confirmed celiac at this point. Check out the advice for newly diagnosed here: To your family I'd simply say that celiac is a disease of the autoimmune system, the part of our body that fights diseases and keeps us safe. In celiac people the autoimmune system see's the gluten protein found in wheat, barley, or rye grains as a threat to the system and it produces antibodies to attack it and in doing so attacks it's own body as well. It's genetic in component so close family members should consider a test if they have any of the many symptoms. There's roughly 1 person in 100 with celiac but most of them don't know it and are risking getting or staying sick by not finding out.  There's further info for them and you here: https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/announcement/3-frequently-asked-questions-about-celiac-disease/ I'm going to ask a mod to move your post and my reply to a new thread, but wanted to give you an answer first The good news is you've found a great site and there will be lots of support for you here. You've also got 'lucky' in that if you're going to have an autoimmune condition, celiac is a good one  Most react really well to the gluten free diet and you will hopefully have much more healing to come! Best wishes Matt
    • Please share what was so difficult about starting your account.
    • I'm new here so please forgive me if I'm in the wrong forum. But I could use some clarity and input.. So I'll try to make my story brief as possible😀 So about 8 months ago I began itching uncontrollably and after going to the Dr for labs she found my liver enzymes were 5x what they should be and was referred to a gastro Dr.  Gastrointestinal Dr ran multiple scans, blood work over the next 2 months and referred me to teaching hospital with a " tumor board" apparently I had a mass within my bile ducts that was blocking bile from liver. Was given a grim diagnosis of rare cancer and told would be dead within the year. Then had an endoscopy done to get tissue of the mass and for some reason it had partially resolved and was no longer blocking bile duct. At this point they could not find and cancerous cells. So fast forward 3 months I'm still in pain and had another endoscopy and the biopsy taken showed high possibility of celiacs.  The blood work was negative for celiac but after the grim cancerous diagnosis I had been unable to eat for 2 weeks or so and so I'm not sure if that would have skewed the labs?. How could the biopsy show high possibility of celiac?  And had anyone heard of celiac causing inflammation in the bile ducts?  I have been gluten-free for 6 weeks and have been feeling remarkably better pain in the upper right quadrant is less, and migraines ( I have had for my whole life) have lessened.  So all this to say I don't understand celiacs and how to explain it to family. Or how all of a sudden this happens. Ask if anyone can shed any insight I would appreciate it. Blessings
