My dr appt with the GI isnt until Tuesday, but I have been playing around with eliminating foods and seeing what happens. I tend to react almost immediatley. I went 2 days without eating Gluten and felt really..fantastic. I wasnt dragging, I felt alert and awake and this is just after 2 days. I was still having some digestion issues but I have always had trouble with eggs. So today, I am thinking wow, I feel so good that I bet I had just been not feeling well..maybe I had a cold, maybe because my primary mentioned Celiac to me I was sort of being a hypochondriac and thought I had symptoms of it, maybe it was in my head and Im fine.

So at work ( I waitress) I had some toast...and felt fine. nothing happened. No headache, no body aches, no chill or low grade fever. So I was like ok..now I feel stupid, Im fine.

On the way home, I stop at the Donut shop to get my coffee..and a muffin. I said the heck with it..Im fine.

Im not fine :(

I just want to know what is causing this..is it really gluten? what can make me feel so horrible? Why cant I just be normal and eat what I want? Why is this happening out of NO WHERE????

The stomach thing has been going on for years..but the head stuff is relatively new.

It takes most people years to develop enough damage that it shows up in different body systems.

Eggs could be a sign of your gall bladder/liver is very upset with you, because they are full of fat. Off of gluten, eating fat (like gluten free versions of muffins, doughnuts, etc) can be easier because the gall bladder and liver are working better.

It's not happening out of nowhere. You said yourself :

"The stomach thing has been going on for years"

You have now progressed to the next stage where it has done so much damage to the intestines & is now doing damage to other parts of your body. And even that has been in progress --- it's just deteriorated to the point that you FEEL it now.

I actually dont have a gall bladder, it was removed 13 years ago.

I suppose you are right. I do want to thank everyone on the boards for dealing with my whining and ranting. This is very new to me. Though not the worst thing that can happen, and certainly not the end of the world, I always assumed food allergies and such were things that happened to OTHER people, and not me. lol.

So its all very surreal right now. I think its going to take a while to process.

I will echo what Jestgar says. Whine away. Sometimes we rant pretty good too!

I know it's shocking at first. All I could think of was all the foods I could never have again. My favorite foods. The comfort foods. But it's weird --- I don't think about those things at all now. In fact, the thought of them turns me off. I've read quite a few who have said that.

Hang in there. We're here for you. smile.gif

Chocolaye chip muffins from Dunkin Donuts are my all time most favorite things to eat. I am remembering back to a few days ago when I felt AMAZING (relatively) and thats how I want to feel all the time. So I guess I will do what I need to do. I just cant wait to see the dr and find out for sure.

I do know that even if she comes back and says she doesnt think its Celiac, I KNOW how I feel, I KNOW how much better I felt by not eating wheat and since there is no harm in NOT eating it, thats what I will do, regardless.

I definitely have a problem with eggs and too much dairy. Eggs do me in within minutes of eating, just goes right through me. I dont mean if eggs are an ingredient, but just straight eggs...its hell. And too much creamy milk/cream or liquidy type cheese is just awful too. I am ok with hard cheese and skim milk, but creamy stuff kills me.

I dont know if its related to the Celiac or not..I have been reading and saw how many people have trouble with it first while healing. I hope thats all it is and not a seperate allergy :(

It could very well be b/c of celiac. You may find you can get those foods back after you heal. And you may try them at say 6 mos. & not be able to tolerate them but try again @ 1 year & you will or 2 yrs. We all heal at different rates so it will be a trial & error thing.

    • Thank you for your reply.  I did make sure to keep eating gluten before getting tested. I'm still unsure whether or not I should ask my doctor to run the rest of the tests in the celiac panel.  
    • LOL, re: trousers vs. pants.   Here in the US, trousers are a specific kind of pants/slacks, with a looser fit and often with pleats in the front.   I also read that Vit D helps digestion;  can't recall the links, but likely within Gundry's writings about lectin.   My Dr. just told me to resume 2000 IU per day, and I do think it's made a slight difference. Have also read that bone broth is helpful, its gelatinous nature supposedly coats the stomach.   I know bone broth has not been formally studied much, but again, probably can't hurt and might help.
    • I'd try the gluten free diet for a few months to see if that helps at all. Can't hurt. If it doesn't help I'd try a low FODMAP meat and veggies diet.
    • A good amount of the neurological effects from celiac are also related to nutrient deficiencies caused by malabsorbtion from damaged intestines and the fact that most gluten-free foods are not fortified and your net eating many grains. You sound good about the CC and everything and seem to be taking percations goods, I still use freezer paper for a clean safe work surface even in my gluten free home lol. Anyway top things to look for and consider are magnesium and B vitamin deficiencies . I take my in a drink to avoid pills and the sublingual forms are more easily absorbed by the body. I normally suggest 2 brand or forms of magnesium and you need to find the one that works for you there. They are Natural Vitality Calm, a magnesium citrate in a powder, you add it to a warm drink let it fizz and drink it. Magnesium citrate can be a bit harsh on some peoples guts, I suggest you start off with 1/4 tsp and work your way up to the full dose over a week, if you get D then your taking too much and need to back down or the citrate version might be too rough for you. In which case I suggest Doctors Best, bit more off tasting and mixes best with a juice but with the powdered form of it you do not have to worry about digestion issues, I just found the citrate to seem to help with my nerve issues more. B Vitamins, I take Liquid Health Stress & Energy and the Neurological Support, I take 1 tbsp of each 2-3 times a day before meals. Really helps with everything and being in liquid forms I just add to tea and drink it. There are many other vitamins to look into and we each have ones we have issues with more then others, getting tested might help, NOTE magnesium and B vitamins sometimes show normal but you will still find you need supplementation...bit of a odd thing I found. Yeah the neurological effects are  huge thing with me as my issues with this disease cause my immune system to attack my nervous system and brain....accumulated brain and nerve damage over the years. Had a whole mental trauma issues with them, my gastro issues back then were mostly just constipation. NOW days I get the Vomiting, D, gas, bloat, and then constipation for a week along with neurological issues which NOW if I get exposed to eating straight gluten (happened twice in 3 years to this extent) I loose motor control and collapse unable to move, normally while vomiting violently to the point of blood coming up (this was what happened last June 2016 after eating out).  
    • Started thinking the only cereal I allow in my house is Vans, they have a cinnamon one that is like a captain crunch with cinnamon, and a strawberry O type that I keep in stock for a friend that comes over sometimes and for my cousins littler girls who I end up babysitting sometimes. There was a coconut flake (corn flake knock) off I used to eat, but the company discontued it. There is a stuff called progranola from julians bakery made without grains that looks great but is a bit expensive at $9 a bag.
