What Do You Think Would Help Me In The Morning, Kind Of Gross?

I don't think it is gluten. It is kind of embarassing to ask, but I have to go number 2 3 times after I wake up. Is there something I could do, eat differently so I only have to do this once? It is holding me back from going back to work. I'm a school sub and you can't go to the bathroom if you sub and I don't want to say I can work until I can figure out how to eat to not have this problem? :blink:

Not gross- just a fact of life. :)

Do you mean D?? or firm BMs ??.

Because those are two different issues.

Do you take probiotics?

Your system may be trying to balance. (took me a while, but I used probiotics to speed things along)

This took some time, but resolved itself for me after a while. It can take a while to get the right fiber balance and as you heal, that balance changes.

Eating gets the system moving. Maybe eating as soon as you get up and having some warm tea or coffee, would get it moving earlier?

I guess you have the summer to work it out?

I was a three times a morning person. Not exactly D, but loose, and by the third time, looser. And the third time was always after eating breakfast. It changed pretty quickly, within a couple of weeks I think, after I went gluten-free.

But whenever I would eat salads or asparagus or sweet potatoes, there it was, back again. Maybe you're having trouble with too much fiber? I think for me it was pesticides. I could eat organic sweet potatoes but not grocery store ones.

Until just recently. I think my system healed enough to settle down and let me tolerate more. I still haven't tried salads again because I am taking a break from adding new foods for a while. I'm not taking any chances with this new-found good health. Maybe in the fall I'll try again.

I know coffee does me in and I need to get rid of it. It is just so hard. Thanks for your ideas. What should I eat for breakfast to try to lesson this situation? Is there a good gluten-free cereal or I just have no clue. I have to eat some fiber because I had a precancerous polup2 years before my celiac diagnosis. That Dr. told me I should be eating more, but then I get this problem. It is gross, but gets progressively looser. I have to drive my kids 20 minutes each morning to the gym so this is an issue. :huh:

Maybe some decaf in the morning or tea and wake up earlier and eat...affording you more time before work. Add you fiber intake later in the day, after your road "work" (It is road work, been there :P )

If I need to be somewhere when I'm out of routine, Immodium helps and relieves some of the anxiety too (which could add to the issue).

...just my little tidbit of suggestions. B)

Just try cutting the coffee out for a while and see if it helps? :)

I eat gluten-free Rice Krispies sometimes or I may also have some fruit and toast (I make my bread with a high fiber flour blend)with Pb or almond butter. I have smoothies with fruit, kale and ground flaxseed meal, which is great for fiber.

You can try a TBLSP. of ground flax seeds in 16 0z. of water twice a day --it's a good amount of fiber and Omega3s (along with your vegs and fruits and brown rice ) to keep things in check.

Hope this helps. Most of us have been where you are and we sympathize.

I have that problem with gluten cc. I had it big time pre diagnosis. It came and went for quite awhile when I was learning about what diet worked for me. It helped me to keep a food/symptom journal tracking everything I ate.

    • Hello I was diagnosed Dec 15 of last year and went totally gluten-free the next day. I actually got worse before I got better - it's a steep learning curve - but now, 4 1/2 months later I'm finally seeing improvement.  Hang in there. 
    • Called my GI doctor today to make sure he is going to look at my small intestine and do biopsy for Celiac for my EGD and he is. Thanks for the tip everyone about have to start eating gluten again. The office told me to break my gluten free diet and start eating gluten everyday until my EGD. Here's to being miserable again for a few weeks 🍻🍞😩
    • I can completely relate! The horrible mental effects that I have been living with for years is the absolute worst side effect of eating gluten, HANDS DOWN. Worse than the endless tummy aches, worse than the constant diarrhea, worse than the week long migraines, worse than the daily fatigue and body pain.... I honestly though there was something seriously wrong with me and hated my life because of how I felt mentally. I always felt like I was drowning, not in control of my thoughts, trapped in some unexplained misery. My head was always so cloudy, and I was mad because I always felt so slow and stupid. I would feel so lethargic and sad and empty while at the same time be raging inside, wanting to rip out of my own skin. I was mean, terrible, would snap at the people closest to me for no good reason and just felt like I hated everyone and everything. Think of how crappy you feel when you have a terrible cold and flu - I felt that crappy, but mentally. Some days were really bad, some were mild. I always thought it was because I was getting a migraine, or because I had a migraine, or because I had just overcome a migraine, because I didn't sleep well, because....always a random reason to justify why we have all these weird unrelated symptoms before we get diagnosed. I'm happy to say that I have been gluten-free for about 2 months now and though I am not symptom free, the first thing that improved was my mood. I no longer feel foggy and miserable. For the first time in years, my head is clear, I can actually think, and I feel positive and like I am in control of what's going on in my head. I don't hate the world. I don't spend every day bawled up on the corner of the couch depressed and angry. The release of these horrible symptoms is enough to never make me want to cheat, no matter what I have to miss out on. So insane how a little minuscule amount of a stupid protein can wreck such havoc. 
    • I wanted to collect some of the info on NCGI in one place so that visitors who test negative but may still have an issue with gluten can be directed there.

    • I was just diagnosed in March and I totally feel you. I'm having a hard enough time with determining which lip glosses are safe, let alone all my face products etc. I feel like this 'grey area' is the biggest annoyance with Celiac. So many foods/cosmetics I thought were safe after reading the ingredient list are actually not safe at all! One website says it's safe, one says its not. All these unfamiliar ingredients and even after googling term after term still so many grey areas!! I'm sure in time it gets easier and second nature and you learn by trial and error but holy this constant uncertainty is super annoying haha.
