OK this will sound weird but since going gluten-free two weeks ago my tummy feels great but my head is foggy, tremors in hands, light headedness, joint pain.

Why are all of these symptoms coming when I eliminate gluten? So confused...any ideas?

By the way, I also have an abundance of yeast...what do you eat on a yeast free diet? I'm assuming no sugar/no bread but that is very hard.

Also, what is casein in? That's a new term for me.

Ok, so what on earth is left to eat if you cut out gluten, casein, soy, eggs??? Veggies and meat? I could NOT live on only that. I'd rather just get sick.

Since you have been glutenfree for two weeks, your body might be in detox stage. The symptoms you are having could very well be your body finally eliminating the gluten from your system, and trying to adjust to not having to fight it any more. If you truly prefer being sick over not eating the foods that make you sick, then have at it. It's your body, do as you please with it, just don't complain to me about being sick. Of course, if you are like me and are just blowing off steam and frustration over the severe restrictions of the diet, then I really sympathize. It is very hard to do, and sometimes I wonder if death would just be a better option. I feel that this is a normal feeling, and I must work through it, and stop looking at the negative side. Instead of thinking of all the foods I cannot have, I focus on the foods I can have. I ate a very delicious fruit cup at Wendy's today, and did not worry one whit about gluten. There are positives, you just have to look for them.

:blink: All I can say is WOW!!! I almost feel guilty with the few symptoms I have! Can anyone tell me if there is a relavance to the amount/severity of symptoms and the severity of damage to the intestines?? I guess what I'm trying to get at... if I'm not feeling as sick as some from any contamination with gluten, am I also not having as much damage done to my intestines?

Basically I know I've been "glutinated" when I rush to the bathroom first thing in the AM. Diarhea... I know I've been REALLY "glutinated" when I go a second or maybe a third time.

I do have irritability often, however I can also blame that on PMS, stress of owning my own business, working 16 hour days 7 days/week, financial burdens, etc....

I think I'm most frustrated by the pain in my left shoulder, however I've also been told this is tendonitis/bursitis/frozen shoulder... My job is very physical and it seems like I'm always getting hurt, hands, neck, shoulders, back. I also have a VERY hard time sticking to a vitamin regime due to very irregular meal times. Next month I get blood work done to see what my vitamin levels are at... I'm hoping my body is starting to absorb more nutrition from my food and I won't have to take so many pills everyday. It's been almost 13 months gluten-free, and for the past two months I've let me vitamins slide completely... I tell myself it's to be ready for the bloodwork, however it's more a lack of ability to get them in my face daily! <_<

I really appreciate this board, I've been gluten-free for a year and in denial for 15 years, I don't know what took me so long to learn more about the people who suffer from this bizarre disease! I can't believe the variety of symptoms, no wonder it's so misdiagnosed! :o

Looking forward to learning more from the REAL experts! :D

    • Is your concern the social aspects of eating on the job, or not always feeling well enough to get out the door? I'm in health care, and just happened to be in home care when I was diagnosed.  It actually works well, as I make my own hours, and can reschedule visits as need be. I would think you could complete your MBA easily, maybe part time if necessary.  It's not clear what your career path might be ....counseling?   Industrial psych? Research? Once you are established (and you can do that part time if need be, to start), you will have more options for flexed or reduced hours.  If the social aspects of eating are an issue, you can always excuse yourself at meals, drive to a pleasant location, and eat in your car. Or go for a walk and find a place to eat. For work luncheons,  I just have a beverage or pick up a piece of fruit, so I give the appearance of participating. 
    • Can you tolerate nut milks? I find macadamia milk the gentlest on my stomach. The only brand I've seen here in the US is Milkadamia, and it comes sweetened or not, and fortified with some vitamins. I think this brand is from Australia. Or you could make your own. As for time, it can take awhile, and that seems to be more the norm. A recent new dairy intolerance that peaked May 3 has made me sicker than celiac ever did. Almost 3 months later and I am just starting to get better and my fatigue is improving. I had the usual ups and downs, inadvertent exposures, and trial and error.  I had only mild symptoms (comparitively speaking) at my celiac diagnosis 4 years ago, yet it took 6 months to a year for them to fully resolve after going gluten-free. It's hard to be patient when your GI tract is off, as it makes you feel ill all over.  Just keep doing the right things, introduce new foods one at a time. I would also suggest more protein for weight issues ... can you tolerate tuna? Tuna and some version of mayo? Salmon, vitamin D supplements, and bone broth seemed to have helped me recently with gut healing. Wishing you well...  
    • Thank you for your response! Again I am pretty sure my doctor did all these checks however I will definitely check to make sure and take the necessary actions if not. It just feels like a never ending run of doctor appointments and blood tests at the moment and the whole thing really did come as a surprise to me. I think I have really tried to eat healthy as I believe its so important especially being diagnosed with this disease. I feel as though its not just about eliminating gluten but also having a really healthy and balanced lifestyle. Also, I find that at the moment it is not just gluten that upsets my stomach, fruit for some reason also does. Unfortunately, people do not realize this and dismiss it which can also be annoying on top of the diagnosis. I will definitely be avoiding processed foods and have been for the last few months. Thank you for your response and I will listen to my body as you have said, it is without doubt very important.
    • Is aroy d milk gluten free?I couldnt find an information on its package,it says it doesn't have any additives.It's full fat and sold in a bpa free carton box.Anyone tried it?
    • Thank you so much for your reply, it has really helped! Your feedback on the grieving side has really comforted me to know I am not the only one and that it will get better. I am not always upset and sometimes I feel optimistic but occasionally it really just does get overwhelming especially at the moment if I am eating in a restaurant for the first few times or out with friends and have to be concerned with what I can eat and not just concerned with having fun.  In relation to my diet I have seen a dietitian and got very positive feedback. I love cooking so this has been helpful with changing diet. But, I just find that I run out of recipes and am sometimes eating the same thing on repeat which is agitating. Unfortunately, I currently cannot eat lots of fruit as my stomach responds poorly to it so my dietitian has said to eat only one or two servings a day and build up. I definitely am going to research more recipes and snacks over the next month and really try to get my diet sorted so I can feel more relaxed and better. Thank you again your response it has helped massively just to know there are people out there who understand! Thank you.
