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

    • Hi! My daughter is 19 was diagnosed at age 16. It took about 12-18 month s for her to fully heal from the damage and feel "normal" again. Also because of the damage done she had reactions to dairy, so you may want to try no or minimum dairy until youre fully healed. Just a suggestion. Hope you start feeling well soon!
    • Hi yall! New to this blog, but really glad it exists because I have lots of questions. First off, I'm Allie! I'm 17 and newly diagnosed Celiac after about 3 years of searching for answers. I initially went gluten-free on the recommendation of a friend, I felt better in about a month and then my pediatric gastroenterologist had me do the gluten challenge, and my symptoms were the worst they have ever been, and ones I barely noticed before became very present. I did the biopsy and was diagnosed, it's been about 2 weeks and my symptoms are still pretty bad, although my diet has no known sources of gluten or cross contamination. Wondering if anyone has any input on healing post gluten challenge, any tips or how long it took for you would be quite helpful! Thanks 
    •   Might want to look into a keto diet, I have UC on top of celiacs and keto is working great Yeah I have major nerve and brain issues with gluten, gluten ataxia with nerve issues and brain issues. Seems to cause my body to attack my brain and nerve system. My brain stumbles fogs, and starts looping, the confusion causes me to become really irritable, I call it going Mr Hyde. Like my mind will start looping constantly on thoughts and not move driving me literally mad, or it used to. Now days it is primary the numbness anger but the gut issues and sometimes random motor loss limit me motionless to the floor now days for the duration of the major anger effects. Used to be a lot more mental then painful gut. I did a mental trauma post on it on while back where I came out about all my mental issues with gluten.  
    • ^^^^^^ good info, tips and tricks^^^^^^^^^ yes, crumbs will make you sick.  also, breathing flour/pancake mix, etc that is in the air because eventually, you're going to swallow some. 
    • Hello I was diagnosed Dec 15 of last year and went totally gluten-free the next day. I actually got worse before I got better - it's a steep learning curve - but now, 4 1/2 months later I'm finally seeing improvement.  Hang in there.
