Help! Cant Eat Anything!

6 posts in this topic

hello, everybody.

i have big, i mean B.I.G. problem! i can not eat, anything i eat, messes up my stomach. i get cramps, loud noises, bloating, urgent need to use the restroom and that from anything that i eat. i can not even drink a protein shake...

i am not an american, i got here a year ago on my visit of my, that time boyfriend, we got married spontaniously and i stayed. since my immigration aint ready yet, i simply have no insurance to go to the doc. i must say i got sick long time ago ( the problems started two months into my stay. ) i must note that i NEVER had any troubles with my stomach in life, ever..but since i am here i didnt only gain at least 50 pounds i also feel like crap after i eat.

first i noticed i got bloated after eating anything baked or breaded. then i couldnt eat onion or garlic, then pickles and egg and now, i ate two spoons of pumpkinsoup seven hrs ago, after not eating anything for 26hrs, and i am in pain, stomach making noises like something is dying inside. i dont know what to do or what even try to eat. i feel like that fo three days now, i lost four pounds, which is good, but i rather eat a healthy diet and work ou.

i am not allergic to anything, never wa am under the impression that american food is not too good for me.. i grew up with almost all organic and NOT processed food, always home cooked. i cook a lot, but my husband eats it all byhimself, because i cant.

i recently found out that america has genetically modified wheat, since 1985 it is standart, and since then the celliac cases exploded. europe had tested this wheat and corn on mice, and they were dying twice as fast as the controll group.

we buy o

ur food at trader joes, the store swears they do not use genetically modified food, but i still cant eat their bread.well at the moment i cant eat anything anyway..i also cant find sleep, and if i do, then i wake up every two hrs. i am groggy all day.i am sorry if the post sounds like its written by someone who hasnt slept two nights in a row.. but thats how it is.. and on top of that, the forum is slowing my tablet down. if somebody has experienced anything simmilar to that, please help me to find a way out of this. its horrible, canteven go anywhere, because my stomach is loud, it is embarrasing

There are many illnesses that can have the same symptoms. (parasites, H. Ployri, infection) You really need to get tested, and that would be a full work up. Celiac can be triggered by stressfull situations (getting married suddenly away from home)

A protein shake is not the way to go in this situation because most of these intolerance/reactions are from PROTEIN. Gluten is the protein chain of wheat, rye, and barley.

Try keeping a food journal and staying hydrated until you get medical attention.

thats the point, i cant have possibly anything like parasites or infection, me and my husband do always eat the same food, often from the same meal and plate. unless he eats something with wheat that i try to avoid.

how comes i am sick and he is ok?

Sorry you're in this situation. I can't eat much either. Can you find a small amount of safe foods to eat repeatedly just for now? White rice, potatoes, that sort of thing? I can only eat white rice if I soak it for a day (at room temperature) first. Then find one kind of protein you can eat. For me, only tuna is OK. So I make a lot of tuna-rice casseroles! Then I take a multivitamin.

Some people find the GAPS diet or SCD diet works for them. Try googling those or searching this forum.

Then, once you can eat without pain (or at least manageable pain), wait two or three weeks (or longer) and try adding foods back in. You can do it immediately if you really want, of course -- see how you feel. Keep a food diary, yes, absolutely.

Look at the Newbies 101 thread for ideas for probiotics, vitamins, and digestive enzymes. These are all over the counter, so they should be safe if you test them out in small doses. They may help or not as you figure this all out. If they cause pain, stop for a while.

Then -- or sooner, if you can -- you should see a doctor. I don't know how you can do it, but talk to your husband about options. Can he get it through his job and get you covered? You may be able to get a job on your own with insurance, if you need to...I've known people to get a job just for the insurance. But, obviously, big step, and not appropriate for everyone. Plus it takes a while to kick in.

Where are you from? Maybe you could get some food from home and see if that makes a difference?

My suggestion would be to eat only unprocessed foods, because it may be some additives that are causing you some of the problems. And keeping a food diary is probably a good idea too. If you have veggies, make sure they're well-cooked. Also, it may be something like soy or dairy is the culprit, so go a day or 2 or a week without either of those ingredients, then test only 1 of them at a time.

Hope you figure it out soon, having a reaction to everything isn't much fun.

@AmeliaF

thank you for all the information, i def. will google the suggested diets.

i am from germany, rigt now my immigration is in process and its taking forever, thats the reason i cant go to a doc, cant have an insurance or job or even drive a car.. horrible situation, especially now, that i cant eat anything.

i just ate some tuna and energy porridge, dont really know what that is, but hubby said i should try it. i ate two spoons omy hubbys breakfast ( fried sweet potatoes with rurkey bacon) and then two spoons fof pumpkin soup, just pumpkin, salt and pepper.. and my stomach went crazy, after like four hrs it was loud and its simply embarrassing

@ciamarie, i do to 90% eat unprocessed food, since couple of months i didnt eat any at all, well except of bacon this morning. we try to stick with trader joes ( which is using less less pesticides and no hormones in diary and meat) or organic vegies. i have no idea what could cause my misery..

    • Hi all, my TTG/iga came back. It was 4. 0-3 is considered negative and 4-10 is weak positive.  In January it was 12 and before my endoscopy in October it was >100. it plummeted those first 2 months but seems to be taking more time to get lower. Should I feel optimistic? I guess 4 seems ok. 
    • Yes, i was 230 lbs upon diagnosis. My crp had been high for over 10 yrs. The first year i lost 70 lbs of water. Then i started to realize my continued irratic gi problems were more intollernces from processed foods as well as things like dairy and legumes. I went on an elimination diet and lost 20 more lbs. I finally stopped at 135 lbs which was still healthy weight, not that i had seen it until high school. Check your folic acid. Just found i am positive for one of the MTHFR genes meaning i cannot convert folic acid, which i lost stopping processed food, so i take 3000 mcg l-methylfolate daily. This is improtant because the body needs to detox all the gluten and chemicals i stored undiagnosed so when that was blocked i developed terible nerve pain. I am 10 years clear and things are amazingly better. I am finally adding in foods i could not tolerate like avacados and turkey. I had a pill cam and colonoscapy this year and there is no visible damage like there was 10 years ago. I think it was my clean diet and time to heal. I should have had a full vitamin panel when diagnosed but had no follow up advice except stop gluten. Am on d3, k2 as well. L glutamine helped heal my gi and d ribose gave me some blood sugar stability. I get these at amazon, NOW brand. My d3 is blue bonnet since its fish not lanolin. My k2 and l methyfolate is life extension. It is a long journey but it has become normal to live gluten free and my diet is so much healthier i think my longevity is increased because i have to eat this way. Plus the arterial sclerosis i had 10 yrs ago is gone, cleaned by my body and food. Well wishes.
    • Thanks for the well wishes Jmg. It appears that you & cycling lady think the sugar maybe our issue, let me clarify that's not our issue for it is manifesting as one of our additive intolerance exposure symptoms. One both my son and I have discovered over 2016. It's not a sugar crash type or a gi symptom in our case . But excellent info for consideration for others. My concern was about additives not listed on a label which is currently not required by regulations and the havoc it can cause the consumer .It's a clear cut symptom we get when exposed to a corn derived additive. At this juncture we are possibly sensitive to a highly processed flavor or coloring from a source other than corn that would be helpful to know what that source is per label  . That's where transparency in labeling would be helpful to me and others like me. The links I included on my post reflect concerns by others out on the web  to this concept. The food diary is helpful and has been to us in discovering these sensitivity issues, but not ideal when not all additives are labeled. the label says 100 percent juice but my body says otherwise . I am well aware from personal job exposure that the food industry is not required to list every ingredient particularly if it is not a top 8 allergean which is why I went look for the info to share. As you both pointed out and maybe even helped to bring to light the importance of sugar labeling my dream is to see it a step further with additives.      
    • Makes me wonder when the FDA is going to call gluten an allergen...
    • http://www.newburnbakehouse.com/gluten-free-artisan-bread I had no idea they now have artisan breads and now I am upset because these look amazing.  Is it possible that people emigrate to other countries because of the bread?    The wraps they have are really, really good. They roll without splitting and cracking.  OMG...they even have crumpets.  I really may have to move there.......... http://www.justglutenfree.co.uk/#Section2 We bought this at Whole Foods in London and the bread is quite good.  It makes delicious toast!  The rolls are very good also.
