I ate some pizza with wheat today. Dumb, I know. Believe me, I've learned my lesson.

I thought I would be okay, because it was just part of a piece, but a few hours later I threw up. I had been eating wheat for 16 years before I was diagonosed and never threw it up. I'm 17, and was diagonsosed a couple months ago. Why would I suddenly throw up wheat if I'd been eating it for 16 years with nothing happening? I have been avoiding wheat, besides that pizza.

Perhaps it was somewhat psychological? Once you knew you ate something you should not have, you realized you made a big mistake. And that mentality aided in the regurgitation of food?

It also could have been the combination of dairy and wheat. I found that the older I got the more lactose intolerant I became. I found it harder to keep down all in general, especially milk.

Sarahann, I was eating gluten for 48 years before I went gluten free. Never once could I attribute throwing up with gluten. But now since being gluten-free, I have had the unpleasant feeling of wanting to throw up and throwing up. So it can happen.

I loved to eat bread and pasta and never, ever had a reaction from it. Now a crouton can produce a reaction, usually as diarrhea but I have had nausea too. It is strange but in a way it is also satisfying having the confirmation that my body needs to avoid this stuff.

I'm the same way. It's interesting how are bodies "almost" get used to the gluten.

Hi, my daughter is also 17 and just recently diagnosed. Everything hit her about a year ago this month and it took them a while to figure it out. One of her main symptoms was the vomitting due to the casein in dairy products. Everytime she ate or drank dairy products she would throw up not from the wheat. When I suspected her to have celiac I took her off gluten and she was still vomitting. Then I read on this site to eliminate dairy and when we did no more vomitting. I hope you figure it out. In the meantime you might want to eliminate dairy and see what happens.

I have been gluten free for 3 months now, after realizing I have been celiac for over a decade.. I am now the textbook definition of a super sensitive celiac. I had no stomach symptoms when I was eating gluten, however, I had several other symptoms. Itching and inability to drink whiskey were the 2 things that led me to my answer, as apparently dr.s dont ever seem to get it. Now I have a more sensitive stomach than ever. I believe it is healing..and actually digesting food. Anytime I have even the slightest cross contamination, I vomit now. Boooooo.Usually just once with food. If I drink out of a glass that previously had whisky in it or something I didnt realize had grain alcohol in it, was fermented with wheat, etc..I throw up for 4=6 hours like food poisoning. Clockwork. This is what led me to becoming gluten free and figuring out what the hell was Wrong with me. I am going to be 30 next month. Hopefully I wont sleep through my party! If you are in portland oregon, holler and lets have gluten-free meals! Grass fed animals, as that is all I can eat anymore :) I could use some new styles of food!

    • Don't go gluten free until you find out if they want you to get an endoscopy which they should schedule. Eat gluten every single day until the endoscopy is done. 
    • Hi Johno,  fellow brit here. Crappy uk medical experience is par for the course unfortunately where this is concerned, so don't expect too much help from that sphere. Although with a positive diagnosis you should be eligible for dietician advice and monitoring of nutrient levels.  First, 4 month in is still early days. If you have cracked the diet and are not suffering cross contamination (v easily done) then you still have at least 2 and maybe 8 months of healing to come. So it's little early yet to be thinking that your celiac isn't responding to he diet.  1. Sleep issues. You don't mention what these are, but yes, celiac is definitely linked to sleep disorders. In fact it's linked with just about everything due to the way it impacts the body. Almost all systems can be affected. You may also find if the sleep issues are neurological in origin that they will be the last to go on the diet. I find neuro symptoms are the first symptom and last to go. Note also that although Gastrointestinal is commonly percieved as the major celiac presenting symptom, this isn't the case. So your not alone in not having major tummy issues.  It's not caused by mentality but it sure as hell affects it.  2. How long have you got? I tested negative so I'm in the ncgs category and some won't even accept that my condition exists. Even understanding of celiac is still developing. Research is ongoing as is levels of incidence. It's up 4 times since the 1950s so something is going on, better testing is perhaps revealing more. you have positive diagnosis, so you have good evidence to keep you strict on the diet. Eat as well as you can. Try to keep gluten free processed foods to  minimum  and eat fresh whole foods where possible. Treat this first 6 months as a one off healing period and help your body as much as possible. Take some good quality supplements, regardless of what the tests are saying. B complex, magnesium and a multivitamin are a good safety net if nothing else.  Read the newbie thread on this site and double check your kitchen etc for possible cross contamination sources. Could be seasoning, shared butter etc. You need to develop a sense of vigilance about this whilst staying on the right side of paranoia! finally, a warm welcome to a good site  
    • A freshly baked roll is as delightful as a soft, fluffy cloud on a summer's day. What gives bread much of its appealing texture is gluten, a group of proteins found in wheat, rye and barley. But in people with a serious autoimmune disorder called celiac disease, gluten damages the small intestine. View the full article
    • This disease is like a chameleon and seems to change symptoms on people and everyone is a bit different, heck some have no symptoms til it almost kills them with secondary issues like cancer, lymphoma, rupturing the intestines etc.
      I did not have ht classic D but constipation, I also had a bunch of other signs that I had grown into and considered normal. My big thing was neurological side of it. I had gluten ataxia where it attacked my brain and nervous system compounded by b vitamin deficiency, I had learned about the magnesium deficiency months earlier and was supplementing for that part of it. Anyway my health was getting bad, tired, random gut pains, brain looping on the same thought over and over driving me mad, bouts of anger and rage. I was running a bucket list before they got it diagnosed.
      Wish it was done earlier my immune system developed other issues like corn allergies, bunch of intolerance then years later learned I had also developed Ulcerative Colitis.

      There are some mental aspects to it, one part is the effects of vitamin deficiency like the b-vitamins, can be very detrimental to you mental health. Various others have cumulative effects or require others nutrients to work right. SO you have to find your balance and supplement til you heal, or sometimes for life. 

      There is also odd fight or flight responses I have noticed from me and others, your body starts to associate gluten and certain foods with discomfort, once off them starting to smell them or thing they might have contaminated your food brings out a panic like fight or flight as you subconsciously attribute that smell, thought, food, etc. with pain and discomfort.

      This disease is really not well understood, contradicitve....hell it is the only disease where you have to poison yourself to the point of causing major damage for them to learn you have it.....like "Here eat this poison so we can see if it makes you sick, but you have to be really sick for us to know it is this poison that makes you sick as it only effects some people"
    • I just quoted a little part but really much of your experiences could be mine. I won't bore you with it all, but chest pains came from 19, herniated disk came at 21, followed by 20 years of sciatic back pain. Depression at or about the same time. Brain fog little later. There was lots more, primarily neurological. Internally I expected to die in my 30s or maybe reach 40.  Nothing shifted any of it until I changed my diet and inadvertently reduced my gluten consumption. I went back on gluten for testing, confident I'd found my cause only to test negative. I did keep a diary however and that helped me and my consultant decide that gluten was off the menu for life.  Couple of things which may be helpful. There is more than one blood test. You may find that one of the others works for you. I never got them all and wonder sometimes if I would have tested positive on another one. You can post your results here if you would like some help in interpreting them. you mentions feeling relief when you ate less gluten. Are you sure you were eating it up to the test? Removing it may have altered the results. Finally, once testing is complete, go properly gluten free even if you tested negative on scope and blood. For some people, they test negative but still react. That could be you and give how closely some of my symptoms match to yours it may be the case. best of luck, you will find this site full of support and useful info. You are not alone in this. matt
