hello,

im wondering how mornings are for you guys?

I started getting "ill" in the mornings a year or so ago.. i felt i had to rush to go to the washroom once 'gravity hit' and i got standing up..

since going gluten-free, i still am in the washroom in the mornings, but its not as bad.

i'd like to know if anyone shares this experience..

thanks everyone.

rob

Hi Rob,

Yes I still have a problem first thing in the morning and I've been gluten-free since Sept 2003. <_< I also continue to have "uncontrollable BM's", not sure why that is and I have mentioned it to my GI doc and he hasn't said anything.... so ..... I guess it's something I will have to live with! ;) I usually do not eat anything if I am going out, I will eat when I return home.

How long have you been gluten-free?

With my symptoms, they used to always start in late afternoon or evening: 4-8 PM. I've noticed, though, that since being gluten-free, I can feel if I'm gping to be sick later in the day by how I feel in the morning. Sometimes it's stomach pains (mild, but there), more often it's nausea and a lack of appetite. But I've noticed that how I feel in the morning generally reflects how I'll be in the afternoon--only if I have mild symptoms in the morning, they get much worse by evening.

i have never officially been diagnosed as celiac..

i started gluten free, and instead of going to the bathroom 5 times a day (always minimum 3)

..after 1st few weeks gluten free, it was 2 or 3 a day

now its one a day..

but mornings are always the issue, but its not bad anymore.. and it's totally improved my mood..

Before going gluten-free, my problem was IBS (going to the bathroom all the time and bad pain).

Since going gluten-free my pain is pretty much gone but I still have the IBS...sometimes I have to go to the bathroom 4 times in an hour, etc.

But I never really had nausea before I started the diet. Now I feel nauseated after I eat. I think it's because my tummy is trying to get used to a new diet. I also feel sick in the am's but I get up, take a few deep breaths, and brush my teeth. The peppermint flavor helps. I also carry Lifesavers (they are gluten-free) peppermint mints with me everywhere I go. They work WONDERS I am not kidding you. I pop one in my mouth right after I eat every meal. Love them....

Deb and Stacie..I am exactly the same way as well. I don't eat very much before I am going places. People don't understand why I do this and may think I am not taking care of myself. You know some people don't really understand alot about celiac and different effects on nerves and other things it can cause.

For me mornings are also a tell tale on how my day will be. I usually have pretty good days but I have some where I still get on and off nausea(not too bad) but my altoids, tea, enzymes, and probiotics seem to keep them at little or no level now.Fortunately I have never had to go to the bathroom frequently and never had any problems there. The only major symptoms I have had is nausea and fatigue and being gluten-free has made it 10x better.

The more you are gluten-free I'm sure the better it will get for you. Good luck with everything :D

YES YES AND YES!!! Mornings are bad!! They are better than they used to be before going gluten-free however. I have to be at work at 7:30 but get up at 5:30 so I can get any "bathroomitis" over with before leaving (I only live 5 minutes from my job). If I am going anywhere in the morning, I get up 2 hours earlier at least. Hate riding with people other than my immediate family cause I'm uncomfortable asking them to stop at a bathroom. I am definitely better but still take Imodium if I'm going anywhere cause I'm not brave enough to face the world without it as I have had some bad experiences. Don't invite people to go shopping, etc. with me cause they usually want to stop and eat and THEN shop and that is a sure anxiety cause for me. Will only eat out if it's the LAST thing we do and we're not far from home. :)

Guess I'm the odd one out. Morning's aren't a particular problem... aside from the having to get out of bed bit.

    • Update: I have been taking Chanca Piedra (specifically, Royal Break-Stone, by Whole World Botanicals) on an empty stomach in the morning for the liver-gall bladder and surprisingly my lips are almost normal. I know the peeling lips may be caused by different issues but I hope this info helps someone.
    • Hi Cristiana, I'm so sorry that you are still not feeling well.  When do you go back to your Dr? I wish I could help more, but it's so hard to know what was what when I was on the PPI.  I was diagnosed with celiac and h. Pylori on the same day so I was already feeling awful.  Then I was put on 2 antibiotics with the  PPI.  I do remember feeling terribly nauseous, but just assumed it was the antibiotics.  When I started tapering, I still wasn't feeling well.  It really took months before I started to feel decent.  But I assume that it was the celiac. I really hope you start to see some improvement...((((hugs))))
    • @scorpio it has now been almost 2 years and I am curious if you ever found something that worked for you. My boyfriend suffers from EC as well and I am desperate to find a resolution for his sake. He's been dealing with it for over a year now and it is taking a toll on his work and social life.   Any updates would be helpful
    • I am going through the diagnosis stage as well. My family has strong history for celiac disease, and while I always had discomfort and other symptoms ( some of which i didnt know about) I wasn't tested until recently because I was DEATHLY afraid of needles. The results are highly positive but I am still getting a biopsy in early August. From what I have learned about it is that the endoscopy is beneficial to looking for not only signs of celiac but also other diseases that have similar symptoms to celiac. Because of your mixed result it wouldn't hurt to get a biopsy but it really is personal preference. I understand what you are going through and didn't like the idea much either but I really think it is something that can help you in the long run. P.S. There are lots of testing being done for new medications or other ways to "cure" celiac other than a gluten-free diet. It is my understanding that this can only be covered by insurance with a confirmed diagnosis (biopsy) but I don't need to get into that. The bottom line is that a biopsy is confirmatory especially since the doctors could see in the intestine, so to me, I feel better knowing that there's no chance of going gluten-free for nothing.
    • Hi Everyone!  Thank you for all your responses!  This site is so helpful and I appreciate everyone who replied to my post.   I was able to get an earlier appt with Maureen Leonard who was absolutely wonderful like you all said and after more testing and even a genetics test, my son now has a diagnosis of celiac disease.  He's been gluten free now for a few weeks.  He is doing very well on the diet so far.  He does seem to be sleeping better which was always a problem since he was an infant, so that is a good sign!  We test in 3 months and I hope that his iron levels go up.
