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!

    • Hello and welcome I'm sorry you're having such a tough time. There are lot's of people here who have been through tough times of their own and come through the other side. There's no shortage of support and good advice available. However, it would probably help if you could put down some details about what medical checks your Doctors have conducted? Have you had a celiac blood test for instance?
    • This pain is constant and nauseating it's in my back and stomach burns all the time.  My GI doctor barely knows about cealic they did an ultra sound came back clear.  I can't sleep my stomach hurts it feels like someone ripped a scab off and like it's being eaten by acid 24/7 I'm starting to fail school, I can't work because of the pain I feel like crying, I kind of just want everything to end I've been in pain for a year and half now and doctors are just taking my money and not solving the problem it's driving me insane. Just a burning nasunating feeling that never goes away, makes it hard to walk hard to live hard to drive to do anything I feel like I'm being tortured everyday.   dont know what else to do, I kind of hope someone on this site had similar pain and maybe can suggest what this may be? Because I can't function anymore.

    • I only ever have black coffee, either espresso or americano (pretentious name annoys me but what can you do). It's listed as ok here: https://www.costa.co.uk/nutrition/Costa-ANI-data-November-2017.pdf so its only if there's cc that there would be a problem. I've been ok so far  
    • Just read the ingredients?  Its very unlikely to have gluten in pickled stuff or cheese (except the beer cheese).  Never seen a marshmallow with gluten (I like Kraft because I think they are better).  I use McCormick for most spices & vanilla..  they are just spices.  Never seen a vanilla with gluten.     IN the US, wheat will be clearly announced in the ingredients (its a law).  Rye is only in a few things like bread or crackers & its an ingredient so it will be listed as an ingredient.  Barley is listed as barley or malt (usually barley malt).  Brewers yeast sometimes contains gluten - so avoid.  Oats need to say gluten-free oats or the product needs to be listed as gluten-free.   Lots of pre-packed lunch meats actually say gluten free on them.  Go to the store and look!
