blossomx posted a topic in Post Diagnosis, Recovery & Treatment of Celiac DiseaseHey all, I am noticing much more stringy / mucus with my poop now that I have gone gluten free (about four days now). I know it can take a while to reverse the effects of gluten, so is this normal? To have more of that mucus than before?
I have not been diagnosed with celiac (at least, not yet), but I am trying to figure out what my problem is. For a couple of years or more, I cough and have to clear my throat a lot after eating and again in the morning when I get up. Not every single meal, but many. I tried eliminating certain foods, and it seems that it is worse after eating anything with wheat. I went in for allergy testing and everything was negative. The doctor is going to do a celiac panel to rule that out. I don't have the intestinal discomfort or any of that. Mostly just the mucus issue. Does anyone else have that problem? The only other thing I have wondered about that I have trouble describing is a weird feeling I get in my stomach sometimes, mainly at night. It comes and goes, but it feels kind of like when you get startled or scared but there is no feeling of fear or anxiety with it. Just the physical part of it. Sometimes it happens when I roll over in bed. It's so hard to describe. It isn't pain. I took myself off wheat for a few days and didn't have much coughing or mucus during that time. However, I was told to put the gluten back in my diet for the test. I immediately started reacting again. Since I was only off wheat for about 3 days, how long do I have to keep eating the gluten before having the blood test?
