Yep, pho would do it. Try making a pot (8 cups) of coffee. Drink 2 cups of coffee, then 4 cups of warm water, then repeat. If that doesn’t work, try lots of black beans (a vegetarian chipotle burrito bowl is my go to). Then repeat the coffee water cycle. It’ll get better soon! Other tricks are running (breaks up the poo) and a hot bath. Good luck!

I have IBS induced by anxiety, along with a sensitivity to dairy. When I feel really sick, I switch to a pretty bland diet & drink tons of water. If I’m not feeling well, I find that I’m just so thirsty & hungry all the time, so I drink water constantly & eat bland snacks pretty much all day. Recently I was already feeling sick, and for some odd reason I made a huge bowl of oatmeal with milk.. and I didn’t notice until I had already eaten it. I was already pretty miserable & I obviously wasn’t thinking at all, but it made everything so much worse! I read online somewhere that calcium tablets can relieve some pressure (no idea why), so I take them when I don’t feel well. I don’t know if they help, but I figure it can’t hurt! Another thing that helps me is exercising, even though its the last thing I feel like doing. I will make myself do a short aerobics video, and it seems to relieve some pressure. For the most part though, I kinda just wait it out, and I’m usually feeling myself again in two weeks. I hope you feel better soon! I know how horrible it can be πŸ™

I have IBS, not celiacs, but I second the bland foods/running combination for my issues at least. I’ve found it helpful also to just drink juice (but the lower in sugar kind-lots of sugar upsets my system) for a day. It gives things time to settle down.

 

I can so relate to being bloated to the point of looking very pregnant. I don’t tend to put on weight in my midsection, so it only looks more dramatic. I hide in big sweaters.

I have Crohn’s disease and have similar issues.  When my symptoms get really bad, I usually do a three day juice fast (using my own juicer and all fresh fruits and vegetables).  It really helps me reset my system. 

I feel for you!

Kefir helps when I’ve been glutened, but I can’t prove that it actually works for other people πŸ™‚ usually I just keep drinking as much water as I can in throughout the day, and I drink two-bag mint tea too.

Lots and lots of water and if you haven’t tried it, you can google yoga poses to reduce bloating

Gluten intolerance – still haven’t found a great way to relieve symptoms when I’ve been gluted, but I usually drink a TON of water and tea (green or warm water with honey), eat a super minimal diet of known “safe” foods and try to exercise. Running works best for me, but other cardio things tend to be okay. They usually help with the lethargic feeling, and I find it helps me to focus on the task at hand to overcome any nausea/pain.

I gluted myself on Sunday so I’m in the same boat. My intolerance symptoms are just a fraction of yours, but hopefully some of the suggestions here can help you out! Surprise glutings are THE WORST. I woke up Monday morning and was like “OMGGGG what happened to me”

@berybery:  Oh man, “surprise glutings” is my new term-LOL at that!

I take an imodium….I find it reduces the bloat and some of the stomach pain for me….it also helps with gas. Just don’t take too many, because then you get the opposite problem, and you get all backed up…

@Ellegee:  I agree with kefir.  I started making my own.  My symptoms have just about disappeared after I switched from store bought to home made.

I’m just lactose intolerant/ mild other things you mentioned. Try gas-x and pepto together, as well as so much water you could explode. Feel better!

Yay celiac with lactose and casein issues along with a giant list of other food intollerances.  The way I help with the abdominal pain is a little odd but lots of water as everyone has said before but also some really strong orgasms. Im not sure how it works but I started doing this many years before I was diagnosed and its done a great supporting role.

My Darling Husband is severely lactose intolerant, my brother’s friend’s father has celiac and my SIL’s friend and my uncle are both gluten-intolerant. I’ve heard from all 4 sources that green tea w/ honey, water, and the waiting game are the only things that seem to work. Darling Husband has his own regimen for lactose intolerance–

When he eats any forms of dairy he gets so bloated and constipated that he’s miserable for about 4-7 days. He takes Metamucil (the orange flavored powder) once a day to move things along, tums, and a stool softener. That seems to work for him. That, and the tea and waiting that I mentioned above.

Good luck to you, honey. There are lots of celiac/gluten free/ lactose free cookbooks out there. I can recommend some if you’d like.
