Yes, I was. I had two weak positive blood work, then an endoscopy not for celiac but was very inflamed, and one positive genetic for celiac. My diet is very limited right now. I am almost paleo. I am really struggling to find food that I can eat and not bother my stomach. I eat a lot of nuts, peanuts, beans, chicken, veggies, fruit, and soups. I have cleaned out the house from gluten (except for my dad's rolls ) I can not change out pans and cookware. I could try to get my own personal but it would be hard.
How did you get glutened?
If you have POTS you should look into Magnesium.
Here is a thread started by Ennis_Tx that talks about some of it's many benefits.
Also see this link from the affibers.org website that mentions specifically Magnesium Taurate's role in arrhythymia's.
I also recommend trying some some Niacinamide and/or a 100 B-complex 3/day.
B vitamins help us manage our stress.
If it (Niacinamide) or the B-100 or B-50 causes you to burp in 2 or 3 months (which has Niacinamide in them) then your symptom's could be caused by co-morbid pellagra.
Knitty Kitty has given you good advice as well since Celiac's are low in many nutrient's often.
Here is my blog post that explains what I believe happened to me.
I hope it helps you thleensd the way it did me.
Take a B-complex for couple months to see if it helps.
Frequency is more important than the amount.
2x day of of a b-complex will allow your serum levels to stay high throughout the day helping you recover 2x as fast as once a day. Do the same with Magnesium Glycinate or Magnesium Taurate (2 to 3 times a day in divided doses) and I think your fatigue will greatly improve or at least your energy levels will increase greatly.
I hope this is helpful.
****this is not medical advice only some of the things I did to help myself.
I am too sharing in hopes that other people will hear my story and believe . . .
2 Timothy 2: 7 “Consider what I say; and the Lord give thee understanding in all things” this included.
posterboy by the grace of God,
First were you diagnosed with celiac?
Second what is you basic diet right now, there are some other common issues that go along with celiac food intolerance wise we might be able to narrow this down.
Third did you read hte 101 and make 100% sure that nothing is contaminated? This sounds like you might have contaminated a common used prep surface, utensil, pot. Or have a contaminated spice, condiment, or something new in your house like a cleaner, hygiene product. etc that might be leading to more issues. I can only say if you can get your antibodies checked to see if still elevated to know if it is gluten or something else.
Imodium will help with the D, Anise (the spice) and gas X can help with bloating, pepto bismal can help overall. These can help to make it more manageable. \
I might suggest trying to eliminate the chance of it being cookware by getting some cheap new microwave cook ware like a steam tray and omelette maker and just having steamed veggies, eggs, and perhaps a baked sweet potato. Avoid condiments and spices for a bit and see if you can clear it up taking it down to whole unprocessed foods. I find doing this and resetting helps after a issue (I got glutened this last weekend and did the egg and veggie diet with avocado and almonds). Bonus of cooking in the microwave is you get softer end product that is more moist, less burnt and oxidized making digestion easier in my opinion.
I have been strictly gluten free for 90 days now. I went through a detox for two weeks after being gluten-free then started to do better but then 4 or 3 weeks ago I just got very very sick again. All my symptoms came back, but worse plus new symptoms. I have had diarrhea for 3 weeks every day now. I am in so much pain all I can do is sit in bed and go to school. Doctors won't see me because they don't know what is wrong. I am out of money for other docs. I don't know what to do or if celiac is really is my issue. So much fatigue and pain I had to quit my job and sit in bed all day. I am just getting worse and I don't know where to go for help.
