I started Country Life coenzyme B complex vitamins 3 days ago and I am just wondering if you feel worse before better. My third day on them and I was nauseated most of the day and just felt off, my whole body, then a bad headache in the evening. I also felt off the first 2 days of taking the vitamin. I haven't changed anything else, still on chicken and veggie soup with some fruits. My anxiety level even went up so I had to get back on my meds. Just so weird to think vitamins can do this. Maybe I was so low in my B levels..?? Just don't know what is going on. I'm kind of scared to start the D vitamins.

I took 1 B Complex vitamin for about 5 days. I felt great. I ran out, I took another brand. I felt nauseated and headache for about a waeek. I think it might have wheat or corn in it, but I can't find it on the label.

I need to find out what the first Brand of B vitamins was and get back to edit this.

If you take B vitamins on an empty stomach they can make you feel sick. Be sure to take them after eating a meal.

I think my GI is too tender for vitamins still. I have tried so many brands including Celiact and all wonk my stomach. Some have soy derivatives (vit e, lecithin), some have dairy components (probiotic), some have blah blah. The B vitamins esp nail me. I think a lot of people are ODing on them without realizing it because their water soluble nature has led us to believe more is better. You may also find out that vitamin D will trash your GI system if you take it in the doses that you need to move it up to normal levels.

My new philosophy is to throw the vitamins out and not take them without having the levels checked and verified by a doctor.

Yes this one has soy lethicin and I'm not tolerating soy now but I was under the impression that that soy lethicin is not the soy that you have allergy to, that it's not the same soy. Is that true?

It depends on the person. Most who cannot tolerate soy find that they can tolerate soy lecithin. But there are others who cannot tolerate either. It's trial and error. Leader makes a vitamin D supplement that is non soy so that is what I take.

Ok thanks, it seems I'm not tolerating either. My head feels as though I would be allergic to pollen and I stuck my head in a bucket of it :)

    • Insurance is a pain! But, one of the interesting things about the Affordable Care Act (ObamaCare) is that it set individual out of pocket maximums. This year it is $7100. I realize that it is a HUGE amount of money, but if you started to pursue the work up this year and don't delay, you could get everything done (scope, labs, doc visits) and know the answer in a couple of months.  The most you would pay is $7100 for everything. Most hospitals have payment plans and some offer discounts if you pay cash. It's just a thought, but sometimes getting all your healthcare needs answered at once can relieve a lot of anxiety and be more affordable in the long run. I wish you luck. I hate insurance issues.
    • Hi all, I know this strand is a little old, but I just joined and have a related concern and wanted to express it in the right place. My period has been changing over the past two years or so. I used to be like clockwork, every 28 days. Now they come a little earlier and don't last as long, or they stop and restart, sometimes with some mid-cycle spotting. I've also been fatigued but that could have to do with work (I run my own business and teach on the side). I didn't make any connection with my celiac DX until yesterday when I was reading about peri-menopause. This month I got the heavy feeling in my legs and the sense that it was coming but... it never came. I thought I had a long time before I had to worry about the change! I'm 42. I've never missed a period, even when I was super-anemic. Ugh. Fortunately my mom said she never had any truly uncomfortable symptoms and she (still!) has the bone density of a much younger person. Hopefully I'll have the same experience. My yearly GYN appt. is coming up in July. Should I just wait and see, then say something to my doc then? Thanks in advance for any light you could shed on this.
    • You would think that there is enough people out there, people with celiac disease, that we'd be able to push for a better standard than 20ppm. The problem is the FDA. Too much lobbying involved. It's no different than the fight people are having with Monsanto. I hear that there are several medications that are showing promise in Canada who I think also has a better standard than us.(not positive about that though)
    • Make sure that you ask the doctor how long she has to stop the supplements before you have her levels tested and be sure to take them all with you when you have the appointment so the doctor knows what she is taking.
    • Talk to your doctor. With your family history and symptoms he/she may be able to diagnose based on resolution of your symptoms and family history. Also check with your local hospital if it has it's own lab.  Mine covered any labs at a greatly reduced cost based on a sliding fee scale. Did you have an MRI before they did the spinal? Celiacs with neuro impact will have white spots on an MRI that resemble the lesions found with MS. Many neuro doctors don't know this. I went through what you did and they did a spinal on me also based on the MRI results. If my doctor had know what the UBOs (unidentified bright objects) were I would have been diagnosed a couple years sooner than I was. Make sure if you supplement that you ask your doctor which ones you need to stop taking and for how long before they do a blood test to check levels. Sublingual B12 is a good idea when we have nervous system issues, but needs to be stopped for at least a week for an accurate blood level on testing. I hope you get some answers and feel better soon.
