Can't Keep Food Down
0

5 posts in this topic

I was diagnosed about 5 months ago and have been doing much better now that I've cut out all gluten related foods. There are still those times that I slip up and don't realize it (did you know chilis uses the same oil to cook their chips as the rest of their food!?). However these last two weeks I've been unable to keep any food down. A couple days after Thanksgiving I started feeling queasy after eating anything. I just ignored it since I'm not used to eating as much as I did on Thanksgiving since going Gluten-Free.

However since Monday 11/26 I haven't been able to keep any food down. No matter what food I try it just comes back up 5 minutes later. I've been writing down everything I eat to see if there's any kind of pattern in ingredients and can't find anything. It's gotten to the point where extremely strong food smells make me throw up. At this point it's been a week since I've kept anything down and have moved to a liquid diet of Gatorade/Pedialyte to stay hydrated and out of the hospital. I have no stomach pain or any other symptoms, I feel completely fine until I eat something.

I've met with my regular doctor and went through a list of possibilities. There's no stomach bug to speak of. He gave me some anti-nausea medicine that hasn't helped at all. I've got an appointment with a GI specialist Wednesday but I'm curious if anyone else has had this problem related to Celiac.

My daughter had symptoms that caused her to vomit up to 5 times a day. It seemed like she was having a gluten reaction. (She was diagnosed with Celiac when she was 17 months old and did vommit a lot as well as "D". She was diagnosed with Eosinophilic Esophaitus when she was 6. There is a knwon connection between EE and Celiac.

I also had gall bladder issues after being on a gluten free diet for years. That caused a lot of nausea and vommiting until I had it removed.

For diagnosing EE a scope with biopsy was done. (this can also rule out or diagnose a lot of issues that present with the same symptoms). For diagnosing a gall bladder problem a HIDA scan, gallbladder function testing was done.

My thoughts and prayers go out to you for a speedy diagnoses and recovery!

It could be a lot of different things but for some short term relief I would ask your doctor about sublingual Zofran, it's the antinausea medicine that he/she may have prescribed for you but it'll dissolve under your tongue instead of you having to swallow it, it'll enter your bloodstream and since it's not entering your GI system should actually help with some of your symptoms (when I'm in the same place that you are the meds I take I just throw them back up...)

It is possible it is just an AWFUL reaction to gluten (I've had ones like this that last up to 2 weeks...) but it's good that you are seeing a GI doc.

Hope you start feeling better soon!!

If you really aren't keeping anything down, they can give you a shot of it. It has really helped my daughter a few times. (kept her from needing an IV)

Thanks for the help. I actually just got back from the ER :(

Got some much needed IV fluids which has helped a lot for the night. They did a CT scan to rule out any neurological problems, and found evidence of an Arnold Chiari Malformation, however they don't think that is causing this as it's just a small malformation.

So they gave me a prescription for protonix to see if that'll help with my symptoms and try to treat a possible Ulcer.

I do have my appointment with my GI specialist tomorrow so hopefully I'll learn something.

    • 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!
