What's With My Eyes :-(
0

5 posts in this topic

Hi Friends, I'm only a few months into this (feels longer!). My DH is extremely bad so my gut symptoms are minimal, but I'm starting to notice my eyes getting sorer. It feels like I've been swimming in a pool with too much chlorine. Does anyone relate? I've read a little about sjorgen's - but they don't seem dry so much as sore. Also, if it was related to sjorgen's is there any logical reason I would notice this now after recently going gluten free?

Since I was little and thught I was wheat intlerant, I used to get a pain in my (always my left??) leg and have now started to feel it in my arm as well after a glutening.

Appreciate any advice, particularly the eyes :-(

Thanks

Could be dry eye. Dry eyes are sore. Try a natural tear drop in them twice during the day. That helps me.

Possible you are allergic to something in the air? Moldy fall leaves? A "real" Xmas tree in the house? If you think that may be it Zaditor or the generic allergy eye drops might help that.

I've have pain in my eyes too. I don't think its allergies or dry eye. Maybe from constant headache from celiac disease.

I tried GABA750 from GNC for about two weeks and did notice some relief to the eyes and more calmness during the day.

Look up www.supplementcentral.com. Search for Now Foods GABA 750mg.

Abstract: "gamma aminobutyric acid ....found mainly in the brain and eyes."

I stopped for a while because I started an elimination food study. Abstract: "Best without protein." I feel less calm today.

Hope this helps.

    • Just search for GIs in your area.   Usually doctors post biographies.  Look for someone who mentions celiac disease in his/her bio.  Then call the office to confirm.   Sacramento is a pretty big city.  If you are not successful, there is a celiac disease center at Stanford University.  
    • Maybe you shouldn't take all these movies you watch so literally?  Maybe check the actual report/ study before you get too upset?  I think you might be exaggerating the WHO findings?   but, if you want to go vegan -  there are more grains a  Celiac can have than can't.
    • For my recent endoscopy I was put out temporarily.  Didn't feel or know a thing untill it was over and I was back in the recovery room. The university of Chicago celiac center recommends 12 weeks of eating a little gluten every day before the blood antibody tests.  And 2 weeks of gluten eating before the endoscopy.
    • There are several celiac centers in CA.  You may have to travel a bit to get to one.    Of course that's pretty normal for CA anyway! https://www.beyondceliac.org/celiac-disease/additional-information/hospitals-labs/  
    • I am almost a year into my celiac diagnosis after 13 years of horrible health issues.  What I learned from my Naturopathic Doctor that was the most shocking is that gluten molecules~flour, can stay in the air for up to 48 hours, contaminating any foods you prepare and cook in that same space.  This can make you terribly sick regardless of the utensils and towels, of which you should definitely have separate.  I live with my husband and son and I can't take gluten away from them, they still get their bread and cookies~store bought, but any baking I do is with gluten free flours.  If they want fresh baked gluten filled treats there are oodles of options in cafes and bakeries.  They are aware of what needs to be done to keep from cross contaminating things in our kitchen but it is hard to remember all the details sometimes.  It is much easier and safer, to have your own condiments (or anything that is dipped into) and toaster and pans and utensils and probably towels too.  It is more expensive to start but it sure isn't any fun to suffer from someones accidental exposure....best wishes to you on your healing journey.
