Hi, I've been having trouble with gluten and an abundance of other food sensitivities for three years. I haven't gotten any help from doctors. I've tested negative for celiac's and an allergy test read that I wasn't allergic to anything, including gluten. I'm at my end. It seems I can't eat anything without being sick for days- digestive upset, fatigue, body aches, migraines, brain fog, mood swings, etc. All I can eat are fresh fruit and veggies. That's it. Even the expensive, "clean" pea protein powder I was using has started making me sick. Since I can only eat fruit and veggies, I'm hungry all the time! I have no idea how to get protein (I'm vegetarian and won't change this position). I don't know where to turn. I bought potatoes and tofu just to have something to help me feel full. Bad idea. Got so angry about all of this that I ate a whole thing of gluten-filled cookies last night, which I normally don't do. All I know is I'm sick and tired of being sick and tired (and angry). I feel like I am all alone and am just winging it. Has anyone else gone through this? How did you find direction and guidance? Have you found direction and guidance?
Good morning everyone. So I have been gluten free for 4 months now. One thing I have realized is that I have an issue with yeast overgrowth which may be causing my gluten and dairy intolerance. I am wondering if anyone else experienced this and how they approached it. Also if you detoxed from yeast were you able to eat gluten and dairy again? I want to start a cleanse but I am not sure where to start. i am going to the doctor next week but thought it may be a good idea to be proactive. Thank you so much for all of your help!
trainerj posted a topic in Gluten Sensitivity and BehaviorHey everyone, I am new to this and relatively new to figuring out I was gluten intolerant. I had lost about 20 pounds over the course of 2 months and had a colonoscopy and scheduled endoscope to see what was going on. I was getting massive stomach cramps whenever I ate bread, explosive diarrhea when I had anything with lactose, and was in a state of continual brain fog and anxiety. The medication the doctors gave me, including PPIs didn't seem to help. I literally thought I was dying of stomach cancer. A week before my upper endoscope I started a gluten free diet and saw a massive reduction in my symptoms. My brain fog and anxiety went away almost immediately, so did my heartburn, I got this whenever I ate bread, and I didn't have the massive cramping feeling in my stomach, I gained back about 7 pounds, and my diarrhea began to go away. I had a blood test for celiac but was negative for it, the doctor told me the best way to tell was to continue to eat gluten and get my endoscope and have a biopsy done. Since I felt so good I decided not to get the endoscope, since the GI surgeon said I was either one of two things: celiac or had non-celiac gluten sensitivity. He said the treatment is the same for both; no gluten. The questions I have is I am still having some issues, it seems like if I eat anything with corn or soy I get diarrhea. I also still have a nagging discomfort under my left ribs. I have been gluten-free for about 2 weeks and that is what I am still experiencing. I have read that I may need to cut out soy, sunflower oil, safflower oil, and corn as well as the lactose and gluten to really start seeing good results. Has anyone else experienced this stuff before? Do you guys think I should have gotten the upper endoscope? Thank you so much for your input. When I was researching on what I could possibly have wrong with me, it was this site that made me try to go gluten free and it saved my health. I know most doctors don't recognized NCGI so I don't know how long I would have suffered though this, as no doctors I worked with suggested going off gluten. Thank you for your responses and God Bless! Josh
