Looking For Suggestions/comments On Symptoms

Dear all,

Thanks for being on this forum. It helps to know I'm not alone.

After several years of unexplained bouts of nausea and tiredness

I was diagnozed last year. I've been gluten-free and dairy free for 8 months

and have started feeling better. Occasionally I make a mistake

(not good, have to be completely strict about this, but work takes

me many places), and the response is quite severe.

The local Celiacs here have a wide range of symptoms, but not like

mine and I was wondering if there is anyone out there who reacts

similar to me and if he/she has any suggestions on how to deal with

the reactions.

My main reactions are fatique, muscle aches (like you're having the

flu: arms, legs), nausea, and occasional bloating and dizziness.

I'm currently at home, having eaten some gluten in a marinade

last Friday.

My diet mostly consists of rice, vegetables, fruits and meat.

I have not taken anything for the aches or nausea. Bit nervous

about taking over the counter medication. If there is anyone who has

suggestions perhaps in the herbal area (maybe a certain herbal

tea) or the food area to improve energy levels and reduce the

aches, I'd be very interested.

Does it also take you a week or longer to recover from a (tiny)

mistake?

Best to

How long have you had these new symptoms? I do not want to alarm you but I would talk to your doctor about them if they persist. The reason I say this is because about 4 months after going gluten free I starting experiencing EXTREME fatigue along with other problems. Turns out I may have Lupus.

I hope you feel better soon! Take care :D

Have you noticed a pattern when you feel nausea? Like is it after you eat or anything?

I get tired as well as nausea. Ginger, certain teas, enzymes, probiotics...these are some suggestions of things to try to help with nausea. It takes a long time in some cases to get the gluten out of your system. Some people have symptoms long after they are diagnosed.

Hello again,

Thanks heaps for your responses.

Symptoms have been with me for as long as I can

remember, but not all the time. On and off for several years.

I've been checked for other diseases (including lupus).

I'm lucky, nothing else there. Sorry to hear about your

troubles. Hope things will work out fine.

Nausea happens pretty much all day but generally more when

I just wake up. Common reaction of doctors is to think I'm

pregnant, which I'm sure others have experienced also.

Eating does not have any effects.

I will just have to be ultra strict and wait!

Cheers, Margot

Have you been checked for Epstein Barr Virus or fibromyalgia? We dealt with very similar symptoms and found that my daughter and I had recurring EBV and for both of us it had translated into fibromyalgia (weakness, fatigue, muscle aches, off and on low grade fevers are symptoms of both). Both can be problems for weakened immune systems such as occur with celiac disease.

There is not a "cure" for either, but there are symptomatic treatments for both. Besides, if it is something like this you feel better just knowing what it is and that it is not going to kill you. It may make life tougher, but most of us are stronger than that and can cope better when we know what we are dealing with. It is the unknown that tends to eat away at our imaginations.

For me I feel really bad when I even have the slightest mistake. For me the more I have been of of gluten I have become more sensitive to it. I can tell almost instantly and usually the 7th day after is the worst.

Again if you are having nausea problems you might want to try ginger types of mint teas. I have Celestial Seasonings Tummy Mint and Original Indian Spice and they are very calming to the stomach.Enzymes help with nausea whenever you have it...especially when you are having food. I talk alot about enzymes with people experiencing nausea because I have found that enzymes have helped me tremendously. Also, Probiotics are essential as well. Probiotics help boost the immune system.

I had mono a few years back and those symptoms do match up to a degree.

Has your thyroid been checked? That can run with celiac alot of the time

Also have you been tested for any food allergies or tolerances? There could be a chance you can't have other things that are possibly giving you these symptoms.

Good luck with everything and don't hesitate to ask if you need anything. :D

Dizzy-That's what they are called Probiotics and Enzymes.

Probiotic bacteria favorably alter the intestinal microflora balance, inhibit the growth of harmful bacteria, promote good digestion, boost immune function, and increase resistance to infection.Probiotic bacteria also produce substances called bacteriocins, which act as natural antibiotics to kill undesirable microorganisms.

Enzymes are specifically for digestion and help to absorb food as well. Enzymes help with nausea and tummy aches as well.

I take the brand Enzymatic Therapy because all of their vitamins and supplements have written on the bottle what they are free of which makes it alot easier. There are also other gluten-free brands that people mention on here that they take that are very good as well.

Hope this helps :D

    • 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.
