I hate it when I don't know what does it and after I was doing so well. Have many people given up coffee, soda,

tea? I went to the gym and was fine and then came home and had a diet coke and the rest of my morning coffee and a few sips of yesterday's tea. Then felt girgly, but wanted to get take out for the kids. We went to pick it up and it hit like a train. I had to take 2 imodium while there. I hate that when I was doing so good. Sometimes I get lax after a span of doing so well. My dd said her stomach was bothering her so maybe it is a germ in our house. We had a fun night of drinking at my aunts a few night back. That could have made me more apt for an issue. Who knows. I also ate some semispoiled sunflower sprouts. I hate taking imodium because then it may plug for a few days and then have this same problem. I'll try to skip the coffee tomorrow. lol

On a better note, Happy new year everyone. I wish everyone a symptom free year. (In our dreams, I know. But I can wish it anyway.) :)

I have been caffeine-free since approximately 1972. I drink only herbal/fruit teas. An occasional decaf coffee. Try eliminating the caffeine and see if it helps. Those things you mention, while hard to give up, are not giving you any nutrition anyway :) But if your daughter feels bad too, you may have gotten some cross-contamination somewhere.

I had to give up coffee and tea and caffeine sodas 9 years ago. I now have a couple of small teas a week but get a bit of reflux. I don't know if it is related to the celiac, but I uncovered it when doing an elimination diet when I also lost wheat. Wish I had known then what gluten is...

Actually I had a similar reaction myself yesterday. I drank a coconut latte thinking that I usually do okay with little occasional cups of coffee...but boom, right afterwards and for hours after that, I had C, D and some pretty horrible abdominal pain. At first I blamed it on the caffeine, but since then, I am thinking it was either the milk or the syrup.

Both alcohol and coffee cause intestinal permeability to increase (leaky gut) and we are consequently more sensitive to gluten, lactose and fructose (sugar). I gues, given the recent New year celebrations, we will see more stories like this.

I sometimes get very bad stomach cramps and D after drinking coffee or black tea. It happens about one out of 10 times and mostly when I don't put milk, other than that I haven't the slightest clue why I get this reaction. It's not my gluten symptoms so no cc involved.

Coffee is acidic and hurts my stomach if I don't add a bit of milk.

    • Hello, I have been dealing with a mysterious rash for the past ten years that I am slowly beginning to think is DH.  It comes and goes, is itchy as all get out and shows up in all the areas that DH appears (elbows, back, torso, knees and base of neck).  It comes and goes over the years which has thrown me a little, but from what I can tell it can happen with DH? Anyways I went to an allergist, he was a jerk and told me it was not an allergy and to get a biopsy (which was done ten years ago when it first happened, but okay).  Me being at my wits end I called up a local dermatologist and got an appt for a biopsy.  I went in armed and ready with the info I have read here about the correct biopsy etc.  Well of course the dermatologist wouldn't give me the time of day Would not listen to the past history of the rash or look at photos, was in and out within five minutes and insisted on a scratch biopsy instead of a punch biopsy.  She simply said she would be highly surprised if it was DH.  I try to respect doctors so I pushed but I did not push hard enough.  She did the scratch biopsy against my recommendations.  So that brings us to today when I received a message that the biopsy showed an allergy and that they could either give me an order of prednisone or refer me to an allergist.  Now if you remember my local allergist sent me away and said it wasn't an allergy.  I am so done and I refuse to just keep medicating myself, I need to find the root cause.   So I have a physical tomorrow night with my regular doctor and I am tempted to just insist on a punch biopsy next to the rash for a proper biopsy.  Couple questions for you guys though.  If a scratch biopsy came back as an allergy could that possibly lead to gluten allergy (I know it doesn't prove that, but could it mean it could be gluten?).  Should I keep pushing for a punch biopsy? I am planning to go gluten free after this appointment anyways but I keep eating it to try and get a proper diagnosis.  I feel I should get a proper diagnosis, one to keep me on track, one to make sure that is what it is and also I did try gluten free for 30 days before and it didn't seem to help the rash.  But from what I have read that could have been to short of a time.  I feel I need a proper diagnosis to help me stay with it and keep on the right path.   Lastly, the rash definitely went through stages and is at an end stage, still itches like crazy but isn't as bad looking as when it started.  Does it matter when you take the biopsy as long as there is a rash it will potentially show?  I hope all this makes sense.  I am tired of being told I am crazy from doctors.  If they could find the solution I wouldn't be looking myself.  I would be very happy to be proved wrong but so far that has not happened and I just want an answer! So tired of being itchy!! Thank you very much for your help and listening!!!
    • I'm sorry I don't have much advice for you but I can relate in some ways. I've took generic Zoloft for about 10 years. When I was diagnosed celiac I worried about and researched my medications and am confident that they are safe for me. I have spent many years fighting depression and anxiety and have tried different meds but finally accepted I need the Zoloft and Xanax probably for life. I will say that most of our serotonin is in our stomachs and any time I switched meds or had to withdrawal my stomach issues were the worst. So please be careful with switching or stopping ( never cold turkey) any psychiatric medication. Also you could be sensitive to other grains. Gluten free bread does not like me. Also so far I have not found any one in the medical field that takes celiac seriously. I have been laughed at even and most don't have a clue what problems gluten does to us mentally and physically.
    • When does it matter if its gluten-free? ( likely is)  but she isn't eating it. She isn't 2 and put her fingers and paint brush in her mouth.  Are you or your son going to lick the glass?  Of course not.    Any paint can be be scraped off glass with a razor blade.  Some people use dry erase markers
    • Wow. I'm quite surprised that this is so highly heritable. I mean, I knew there was a genetic component, but most things I've read have said that it isn't very well understood and that other factors play a part.  This gives me a lot to think about.
    • The point is, celiac is mostly genetic, it can be dormant for years then come up. You can have it with no symptoms for years as it slowly eats away at your insides also. So you should have your kids eating gluten and get them tested. This way you know if they have active celiac. They should also be tested every year or so as there is a high chance they will get it.
