Feeling Yucky

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

My new years motto was stop whining since I finally found out why I was feeling poorly, but I can't help feeling so yucky with anxiety, headaches, gasses, and busted sinuses every day. When on earth am I going to get well :-( I'm tired of feeling anxious, and oh my god I'm so over the mind-fog. I just want to focus, put my mind into something productive and just get on with my life. On top of all the foods I've eliminated, seems that even more are going out the window until there is nothing but meat and veggies left. It sucks to have to cook yummy sauces, pasta, and potatoes for my husband while I eat a bloody salad :-( I miss cheese, and I miss eggs and creamy lasagnas. BLah

Could I still be detoxing from soy and lactose?? When should I decide if more foods are to be eliminated

I don't know what to do. I have a deadline tomorrow and I can't think. My house is so bloody messy and gets dusty faster than I can think. Everything is disgusting

I feel your pain! I have kept a good spirit throughout the process, but for me its has seemed three steps forward and one back, which is frustrating me.

I personally took the route of eating only a few things that I knew were safe for me... eggs, chicken, non-gassy veggies... then adding in something else, one item at a time. If there was no reaction, I added another. If there was a reaction, I waited at least a week before trying another new item.

And yet, my body is changing, now rejecting things that were ok a month ago! Joke is on me.

But the path to wellness is worth never putting another croissant into my mouth!

I can't help you with when to eliminate more items, since I did the opposite way. But I can send hugs and empathy for your frustration and physical symptoms!

Good luck!

Hi there, I noticed you mentioned anxiety - which for me was a major sympton. I went to see a Naturopath this past summer and she put me on a Calcium Magnesium Citrate (powder)supplement. She told me that undiangosed Celiac can lead to Magnesium deficiencies (among other things)if you are deficient in Magnesium you can experience anxiety. When I get get glutened my axiety becomes worse so I increase my Cal Mag supplement. If you are not already on a Cal Mag supplement you may want to consider it.

Thanks for the comforting. I woke up feeling just a little foggy, but then the anxiety decided to kick in and I felt devastated. I'm starting from 0 and eliminated everything today. Hubs will have to eat up everything!

Thanks for the tip Molly. I'm in the middle of changing clinics so I'm on my own for a while. I'm taking supplements which include everything at the moment. Don't know how effective that is.

Gosh that sounds so much like me. I'm trying Failsafe diet at the moment, which means I have lentils, rice, and brussels sprouts coming out of my ears. :lol: My Dr. thinks part of the issue may be perimenopausal migraines. Ugh, yuck. I want my brain back, please.

I agree with the other posters. Find a simple safe diet and then add things one per week. Keep a food/symptom journal so that you can track things back. If you keep to simple unprocessed foods it is easier to figure out. Keep track of brands too whenever you can. You will get back to a variety of foods before too long. It is challenging and requires discipline, but it's worth it to get yourself a safe diet.

Yes, I started the diet yesterday, and I've been keeping a journal for three weeks now. I just needed to vent yesterday because everything was piling up and I felt useless. In case anyone might be wondering I managed to keep with my deadline today :-)

I'm on meat and veggies now, and I'm using olive oil and unfiltered apple cider vinegar. Nothing else. I'm not sure if it's necessary to exclude fruits though.

You can always add fruits back if you start feeling better.

    • Me too. I still get transient lower back pain occasionally when my bladder or colon is full. It goes away immediately on voiding. Regardless of anything other diseases you may have, being wheat free gives you relief so even if not Celiac you are Non Celiac Wheat Sensitive. There are over 200 symptoms that are improved with GFD gluten free diet. Google it. It is an impressive list. In any case, while it is good to have a diagnosis, there is only one treatment, do not eat wheat and deal with the inevitable malnutrition damage.(think Biafra babies 1970.) Most will improve over time. Whatever doesn't improve should be investigated to be safe, but realize that recovery may take years. Wheat flour used should be limited to Paper Mache sculpture and library paste.  
    • Here is a partial list of what I no longer suffer from as a result of not eating wheat. Some like the sleep apnea and gerd and back pain and addiction to alcohol were almost immediate. The foot pain is improved to just numbness sometimes. My long term depression went away when I added vitamin D 10,000 iu a day for a year, but the improvement started almost immediately. Muscle tone and energy improved when I added iodine. one sheet sushi seaweed a day. My Fibromyalgia is controlled with 15 mg oral Prednisone a day. I remember as a kid waking up and having to pick the dried mucuos off the roof of my mouth. That is gone and for the first time in my life I am a nose breather. Drink lots of water to help with the mucous if it is thick. Some mornings mine is like rubber cement. I need to quit smoking now.  You can improve have faith, but healing takes time. Stay the course. A Romaine lettuce salad everyday helped the gut pain. Gerd shortness of breath sleep apnea back pain snoring prostrate hypertrophy contact lens protein buildup night vision improved cataracts reduced head hair growth foot pain sleeping no more than 2 hours at a stretch slow healing no energy. Pretty much bed ridden. 
    • Celiac Disease is damage to the nooks and crannies in our intestines leading to malnutrition, vitamin deficiencies with all the various symptoms that make it so hard to diagnose. Then you add years of the antacids, antibiotics, Tylenol, opioids, alcohol, etc., each with their own particular side effects and damage. Now you've got a toxic environment that kills off the beneficial bacteria increasing malnutrition. Theoretically you can eat anything except gluten. But wheat is so ubiquitous in our diet and economy there are unlimited opportunities for cross contamination. So read the label. Use common sense. If there isn't a label it doesn't have wheat so you can eat. Big Food likes to add wheat to everything because it is addictive and helps them ensure you can't eat just one. Why on earth else would Campbells Tomato Soup have wheat listed as an ingredient? Meantime your body is in distress from malnutrition so you need to be sure to replenish D3, and Iodine for starters and treat and support any other symptoms while you heal. Good nutrition without wheat is the only way to stop progression. And just like chewing paint chips made with lead is bad, so is food with wheat.   well said, doesn't need a label.

    • Hi Kurasz, How's it going?  Any change for the amazingly better?  Or slightly better?  
      If not, hang in there, and keep praying! :)
