Having been tested I am not celiac, but I have a severe intolerance to wheat and a moderate reaction to gluten/glaiden

So I am having so much trouble finding ANYONE who can relate.

When I have wheat/gluten I get the oddest symptoms 24-36 hours later.

Please tell me someone can relate!!!! Please!

  • dizzy!!!!
  • left leg just gets numbish - I present as normal but it's so aggravating
  • back ache/stiff joints
  • fatigue/no get up and go

Side vent: I went to this other natural dr. who thought it was all bogus and gave me these supplment with other sensitivites I tested positive, INCLUDING a B complex with wheat germ. Needless to say, I don't take those anymore, but it just bugs me how people just stare at me like I'm making these symptom up. Some restaraunts are so cold hearted. I was left with nothing to eat but iceberg lettuce, broccoli & onions the other day. I was nearly in tears because I didn't bring any food w/me.

One of my friends gave up gluten as she gets extremely achy and stiff from eating it, so you're not alone.

Side vent - always think with your own head about anything you ingest!

I'm with ya, my doctor tells me im not Celiac, and does not believe I have a gluten issue yet all of my problems whent away when I whent gluten-free, casin free. Anyhow if I hapen to get CC everything comes back for about three days, the joint pain, dizziness, confusion, weakness, depression , constipation, insomnia and yes the leg problems, it feels like worms are crawling thought my leg muscles. Migraines and neck stiffness also becomes a problem. I tell people it's like having the worst flu ever for about 3 days. The confusion and lack of ambition sucks its like losing 100pts of IQ for a few days, I get nothing done, I just stare off into space for long periods of time when I should be working. So Your not alone!

Celiac can be very hard to diagnose I had been sick for 5+ years. I didn't present with the usual symptoms so no one picked up on it. I have been scoped but the G.I. wasn't looking very hard and was looking for something SO out of the ordinary it didn't return any results. After being in and out of the hospital for much of last year I was desperate and went gluten free. It saved my life. My stomach symptoms are stomach pain and constipation. And those symptoms are the easiest ones to deal with. My doctor diagnosed me celiac because of my inability to maintain vitamin levels and off of symptoms. I get HORRIBLE brain fog, sadness, fast heart rate, and achey muscles when I have had any gluten or even have been cross contaminated. It doesn't matter what they call it, the diagnosis is the same. Have your vitamin levels been checked?

    • You mentioned the fatty liver, so my mind went there right away.  Try your local celiac group for docs.  Or,  https://celiac.org/blog/2017/06/dr-sheila-crowe-becomes-president-american-gastroenterological-association/
    • I can not digest most meats or animal fats, animal wise I only consume egg whites, and once or twice a month have fish or crab. Quite easy, I found many meat subs, like jackfruit, beyond meat crumbles and beef, using cumin in stuff to give it a meat flavor. Making my own cheese sauces and using diary free cheeses all the time. I live on a ketogenic diet of just fats and protein unable to eat sugars or carbs due to UC and it causing flare ups. And allergic to corn, I eat a ton nuts, seeds, egg whites, and green leafy veggies. I go through lbs of almonds and coconut a week, <.< and about 3-4 cartons of egg whites, and 1-2lbs of vegan protein powders. I found a great carb free noodles and rice subs from miracle noodles that are a stable, nutiva butter flavored coconut oil gets used for cooking everything and slathered on julian bakery bread toast which is grain free nut/egg white based bread. I love and have posted my recipes for vegan cheese biscuits and garlic knots in the recipe area. My approach is quite unique since I can not have rice, corn or quinoa, or other carbs. But if you can have them you have many more options then I do.  
    • Hello everyone! I haven't been on the forum in awhile hope everyone is doing well! After about almost 3 months of being gluten free I'm finally feeling quite a bit better. I have so much more energy and just a better outlook on life. I'd say my good days are finally outweighing the bad!   So I had  question (I wasn't exactly sure which topic to classify it as though). Is anyone on here a vegan as well as being gluten free? I have been really getting into eating healthy and working out and I've been watching many documentaries on food. Almost all the ones I've watched say a plant based diet is really the best route to go. So I had been thinking about going Vegan since about March I'd say, I for the most part, am almost a vegetarian (meat is like an occasion). After watching another health/food documentary last night called "What the Health?" on netflix it really made me want to go vegan. In the doc. they explain how the WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION did research and actually classifies processed meat as a "GROUP 1 CARCINOGEN" right next to CIGARETTES!!! They also explain all the cancer, diabetes, and heart disease risks that go along with animal products and how genetics only really play a role about 5% of the time. Now believe me I go into these shows open minded but skeptical since I know there's a lot of bias information out there but this documentary really blew me away. I have a decent background in science (having a bs in animal science pre-vet studies) and everything they say makes scientific sense (to me at least).  How would one go about even being vegan if there is so many grains we cant have? Is there anyone out there thats done this?  Thanks in advance! 
    • I had high antibodies, no symptoms, and a positive biopsy.  I am glad you are getting a second opinion.  I'm glad celiac can be treated (gluten free diet) without a doctor's prescription, since so many doctors do a poor job diagnosing it.
    • Oh my gosh, that is an amazing turn around! I'm already seeking a second opinion and even if they won't send me to another GI I'm going to stop eating gluten. I'm glad you're doing so much better!
