Withdrawl Symptoms

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Can anyone tell me if these are typical withdrawl symptoms after eliminating gluten from my diet. The last gluten I had was last Saturday, I have not had any since (not that I am aware of) and I feel so ill. I have had chronic gas and bloating for a few days now that does not seem to be improving, my body aches terrible, I feel like my legs don

When I first removed gluten from my diet I went through withdrawal too, and even though I myself had mostly dizziness and some intestinal discomfort (tummy troubles previously odd for me), it did pass. But I recall being more than a little alarmed, especially since many doctors don't believe you can have w/d symptoms from gluten. There are many many on this forum who disagree and have firsthand experience to prove it. Anyway, once it passed I felt amazing.

One bit of advice that I am thankful I took from the folks here on the forum was to also eliminate all traces of dairy and soy at first. So if you seem to continue with symptoms, you may want to consider that, since lots of people like me, who have trouble with gluten also have trouble with those two common ingredients. Many can add the dairy and/or soy back at a later time, once healing is progressed.

Hang in there. It really does get better.

Dr Charles Parker's Celiac Notes.

.

Opiate withdrawal from discontinuing gluten and casein?

Cautionary note: sounds absurd until you see it.

.

You might want to warn gluten sensitive, celiac and casein sensitive patients about this

odd and painful clinical phenomenon:

Withdrawal after stopping wheat or milk products can be painful, exhausting, and depressing,

with weakness, anger, and brain fog.

.

The peptides from gluten [gliadorphin] and casein [casomorphin] are important because

the react with opiate receptors in the brain, thus mimicking the effects of opiate drugs like heroin and morphine.

These compounds have been shown to react with areas of the brain such as the temporal lobes,

which are involved in speech and auditory integration.

KILLER CRAVINGS! (All cravings not just Gluten) .

Addictive substances cause the body to become dependent on an unnatural substance for homeostatic balance.

.

Removing it causes withdrawals.

.

During withdrawal, the addict suffers through the painful readjustment as the body cries out for the missing substance.

In a desperate attempt to maintain homeostasis (chemical balance), the body demands the very substance that caused the imbalance.

I was diagnosed about a month ago. For sure, I had (or am having) withdrawal. First week was bad, as were the next few but this week I think I've turned the corner. Since Wednesday, my old appetite has returned with a vengeance and I'm eating like a horse, with great digestion, and hopefully starting to gain back the 10 lbs I didn't need to lose.

    • Just opened in Cincinnati, Oh: Ma and Pa's Gluten Free Cafe. Dedicated gluten-free restaurant. I had the pizza hoagie and onion rings last night. I forgot just how oily onion rings were. They sat in my stomach like concrete all night long but tasted great. Next time I'm getting the pizza or pulled pork with slaw and fries.  
    • Nope, had the flu and this has happened before when I ate the chili. JMG, I read the deadspin article. It's pretty funny. First, at least we're not bull testicles(Montana), and second, Skyline is the only one claiming to be gluten-free besides Hormel(sucks) and Amy's(sucks) that is Cincinnati style. There are many other local chili's but none are gluten-free. Gold Star is good but they say they're shredded cheese isn't even gluten-free. Like I said, Cincinnati style is the best. It's supposed to have roots from the Mediterranean area. Gold Star is ran by Syrian family, there is one or two others that are ran by Greeks. I kinda agree with the article when it comes to Skyline but I can walk in a store and buy it in a can. I started to thaw so meat yesterday to give it a go but am out of Cumin. No chili today
    • ....post is 12 years old, please check the dates, On a side note to this topic, I had no gluten issues with tide but it caused itching for other reasons I went with Rockin Green and Mollys Suds for a natural detergent years ago. You get like 70-90loads from a bag try, Amazon, Luckyvitamin, or Thrive for them.
    • Really interesting point Kareng.  In fact, my ttg went up this autumn (November), depressingly, and I saw a nutritionalist earlier this month and she doesn't want to retest til March.  She felt it was too soon for those figures, too.  
    • There was a study where they checked 2 weeks on a gluten-free diet , and antibodies were still going up .  The study wasn't about that, so I think that is why they didn't go any further.   So... looks like 2 months gluten free?  If we think that antibodies are still being made at least two weeks gluten free.... account for the fact that most people need a few weeks to actually figure out and eat gluten-free...I would say it was a bit soon to re- test antibodies.     Edit it to add- if you were tested sept 12 and ate gluten for 6 more weeks before going gluten-free - who knows how high it got.  Shame on your doctor for doing the re- test so soon and discouraging you!
