Are You Glutened Symptoms Always The Same?

8 posts in this topic

I seem to have 2 completely different reactions to getting glutened. Sometimes I will get very foul gas and diarrhea. The gas is pretty uncontrollable, but mostly this reaction is more embarassing than uncomfortable. But it seems that sometimes I will get a very different reaction. Tonight I was feeling great all day, even completed a 3 mile run in record time and still felt great afterward. I went out for pizza with my family to a chain that offers gluten-free pizza where we have eaten before. Before I got home I started feeling queasy and the headache set in. I know I am in for a night of horrible nausea and possibly some vomitting. These were my initial symptoms that led to my celiac diagnosis so I assume this is also a gluten reaction. Could the gas and diarrhea not be gluten related? They seem to be such classic celiac symptoms, but maybe they aren't for me. The gas is very different than normal gas for me and it only happens rarely which is why I assumed it was related to gluten, but I know the other symptoms are gluten related. I'm confused.

I'm not sure, but speaking from personal experience...I often get everything at the same time. So, I wouldn't be surprised if they're all related to "getting glutened".(like that:)) I'm feeling it all today. Guess I ate something with gluten yesterday. Only thing I'm not sure was gluten free was some chocolate. Do you or anybody else know much about gluten in chocolate? I'm very new to this. Hope you feel better!

For me i get similar reactions, but they aren't from gluten... If i start to feel sick with the headache, then I know it's gluten. I get the horrible gas when I consume bean flours or sorghum flour. I don't know why. Apparently the damage done to my intestines make those flours harder to breakdown. I have found that phazyme seems to work for me on controlling the gas. Hope this helps!

This is very interesting since it's so similar to my experience. I suppose if this is true for me too than the good news is that I rarely have gotten gluten since going gluten-free. Honestly, the gassiness isn't that big a deal to deal with, I was just worried I was getting gluten and causing damage. Hmm, now to try and figure out what it is that sets off that.

I know gluten is what causes my diarrhea. Other foods cause headaches, gas and muscle pain. I usually don't get gas when I get diarrhea.

My glutened symptoms are GI symptoms. But when I have MSG I get a headache and sometimes nausea.

I'm still fairly new to this -- I've only had symptoms at all for about two years now, so it seems to me that they're constantly changing.

I'm also Casein intolerant, and I can mostly tell the difference between accidentally ingesting milk or wheat, but the symptoms to that have also been changing over time.

My original symptoms were more neurological than GI - I'd get kind of dizzy, slightly nauseous, and have chest pain. Those were pretty scary symptoms. Then I started to get the gas & bloating. I still get those symptoms occasionally. I also get tired and irritable. I used to get horrible heartburn for weeks at a time. Prilosec & it's newer variants only made it worse.

Now I tend to get stomach pain, which feels like another ulcer (I had one when I originally self-diagnosed), but which according to my latest tests is not.

I sometimes get diarrhea too, but not always.

If I read through a listing of possible symptoms of Gluten Intolerance (and there's a lot of them!) I can claim to have had all except the flattened cilia that Celiac is named after. Oh - and vomiting. For whatever reason, gluten has never made me vomit.

Ain't this all just a barrel of monkeys?

I wonder if any of it has to do with just how much gluten you've eaten? The higher the level of gluten, the stronger the symptoms, perhaps?

    • I think the gripe with this sort of article is that it's not telling the right story. When you write anything, you have a choice about whose story you tell and the consequences of it.  While such articles are factual in the sense that objectively, a GFD is worse than a similar regular one, the focus of these articles undermines the struggles of those who must be gluten-free while also not really giving any information that is likely to result in changed behaviour. All this sort of article does is justify the anti-gluten-free circlejerk. I think many of the journalists here think they're on the side of people with celiac disease because they're underlining that the fad diet is dumb/pointless/harmful/whatever. While this may be true, the message the reader remembers is this: the GFD is frivolous. It doesn't matter if there's a line in the article that says something about how the GFD is a medical necessity for those with celiac disease. People don't remember the asterisk in the article. All they remember is that the GFD is for idiots.  What would be valuable and useful is discussing celiac disease - symptoms, longterm consequences etc. and how strict those with celiac disease must be with the GFD in the context of this research. This will do a better job of convincing people that the fad diet is dumb, but do so in a responsible way that doesn't undermine the real problems faced by those with celiac disease or other medical conditions. Plus, the increased awareness might make someone realize that they should get tested.
    • I had to run go google zonulin. Never heard of that! Makes perfect sense though.. I assume every single person on earth with AI disease has leaky gut! Ya know, I drank several glasses to a bottle of merlot every night after work to "unwind" for many years before I figured out it aggravating the leaky gut! I'm SO glad I quit before it did more damage ... Seriously, metformin is awesome. I love it. Great for metabolic resistance and free at a lot of places with an RX!
    • I am on Armour too.  No metformin for me yet.  I am trying to manage on a low carb high fat diet for many reasons like having a damaged gut and being allergic to so many meds (yah know....swelling, hives, etc.).  Leaky gut.  Nope.  Better.  Zonulin seems to be increased in celiacs.  I am going to blame my gut on that!  Seriously, there seems to be a link.  
    • Dang, Ennis.  You rock!  Ironic and I must be near brain dead.  Did I mention that school is out today!!!!!!  I feel so sleep deprived!  S U M M E R! 
    • Wow you have ALOT going on! Sorry to hear about your ongoing issues. Are you super duper strict with avoiding gluten or do you think you are still getting cross contamination? I will check out that portion of the forum- THANKS a bunch for that. It is all a bit overwhelming. I saw some people post that they saw "dramatic improvement!" within 2 weeks and I'm going rreeeaaalllly? *insert sarcasm.. haha. I know I wont get that lucky. I take metformin and armour and victoza. Type 2 diabetes runs in my family too. My glucose levels were never really high and I never got the official type 2 diagnosis but ive dropped all excess weight on these meds. I hope to wean soon. Did you fix the leaky gut? That is a daunting task isn't it!
