Had a rough patch and really struggling to keep eating when my guts are killing me. 5 days of D and now slightly afraid to eat. All my safe foods are bothering my delicate system.

My legs are crampy at night and now the extreme headaches have started up.

I started taking Magnesium and Calcium and it's slowly helping. I am starting to think I need to head back to the doctor. Worried about anemia and mineral deficiencies. Most multiple vitamins make me sick and really hurt once they are slightly digested. So tired of the IBS label that explains nothing.

The sublinguals cost so much that I opt out of them too often because the cost of my groceries is so high, my budget is toast.

I know that I just need to be patient but being able to share my issues somewhere does make me feel better.

Now to find the energy to cook something...

Hi Leah

I don't recall your history, so I will assume that you have had a diagnosis. Have you eliminated dairy? Dairy is absorbed on the tips of your villi and if they are gone due to Celiac...you get the same sort of symptoms like those with gluten.

Magnesium can give you diarrhea. Go easy with that.

Keep a food journal and document everything that gets past your mouth, from meds, lotions, lipsticks or balms and shampoo. Check your dog food, cat litter. And get a toaster for your own use only. Do you see the trend?

I was diagnosed in 10/2010

Still healing, quit dairy for a long time and hadn't had any problems with it for a few months.

It's fun cause our dogs are gluten free now too and so much healthier. My older dogs were having seizures and hasn't had any since we switched to 'Taste of the Wild' brand.

I was the kind that gained weight while I was still undiagnosed and starving. I have been steadily losing weight and wondering if any of the fat I am losing was storing gluten.

I have heard that can happen with leaky gut... Not sure if it's true.

I am hyper viligant about all the extras, but fruit like apples peaches pears, etc just kill me. No citrus of any kind, not even a sip or horrible D for days.

It's funny cause the last two days of taking 1000mg mg mag/cal/D in 250mg increments has actually helped my D.

Just trying to be smart and write everything down.

thanks for the support! :)

Hi, sorry to hear you've been so ill. Did the crampiness in your legs and headaches start since you have the D? It could be that you are dehydrated, and need to step up the amount of water you are drinking. The other thing that crossed my mind is, thyroid problems. Have you had you thyroid checked to see if you are hypothyroid? I am both hypo-thyroid and Coeliac. They are both auto-immune diseases and as you may or may not be aware, if you have one auto-immune disease, the chances of having another increase. Also, you didn't say whether you eat dairy products. I still can't eat dairy even though I've been on a gluten free diet for a while. Also oats? If you are super-sensive, you may find you can't eat them either, even ones produced in a gluten free environment. You need to go back to the doctor for more tests. Good luck, hope you feel better soon!

    • I would have bouts of discomfort and nausea after eating certain foods, but I always assumed that it was because I was eating garbage like corn dogs and etc. Did you ever have any symptoms of vitamin deficiencies like angular chelitis? I had this in high school all of the time, and when I tried to scratch it off my lips would get all red and it looked like I was wearing lipstick (I'm a guy you can probably understand how embarrassing this was). I went to the doc to get a b12 shot twice and most of my current symptoms cleared up, but it was temporary. I don't remember anything else besides having diarrhea often which I always figured was just because of my unhealthy diet.
    • I do not think anyone was discussing " formed chicken" here.  Obviously, that is a different food than plain fresh chicken.
    • Dermatitis Herpetiformis  can manifest itself in lesions anywhere, not just elbows and knees.  I have it and although gluten free, I still have severe itching and little bumps that itch.  I don't have the lesions any more, but itching can drive a person mad.  the bumps can be on buttocks, shoulders, etc.  Dapsone is the standard treatment, if you are not allergic.  I also use topical prescription creams.  I take 2 Zyrtec a day and benedryl at night.  Benedril spray helps with temporary relief.  Also am on hydroxyzine and doxepin.  Sometimes steroids like prednisone help, but can ruin ones blood sugar counts.  I use Grandma's Baking Soda soap.  Straw may certainly be a factor.  I must be coming in contact with a trigger of some kind even though I'm very careful about my diet.  Change your dermatologist and get a specialist in DH.  I went for years with all kinds of stomach and bowel issues and was 69 years old before being correctly diagnosed.  Don't let anyone tell you it's your imagination!
    • I can not help you except to offer some emotional support.  You are not crazy!  You can get glutened on a farm.  Here is a study: http://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJMc063112#t=article This topic has come up before: Hugs!      
    • I know I got glutened after handling some straw last year helping out decorating at the farmers market then going to eat something without washing my hands. I later learned it was wheat straw, some of them still had the heads on them and everything. Gave that area wide walk around after that, I did not have much issues with inhalation with it. But if your there with a thrasher running, down wind during the harvest.......I imagine it might be hell if your super sensitive. If you get skin reactions that easily from it I guess taking a vacation during harvest? Try staying indoors, dust mask, long sleeves and pants hope for the best.......I am just throwing some ideas out there. Maybe someone can help a bit more.
