I am hypothyroid, not officially diagnosed with hashi's but antibodies just under top the range.
I went gluten free last year for three months to see if would help my hypo. symptoms.
In those three months I had three really bad episodes of vomiting, diarrhea and severe lower tummy pains, which came on suddenly, and lasted a few hours.
The first episode happened two weeks after going GF, then two weeks after the first, it happened again and the third episode six weeks after the second.
The first time I thought it was the nova virus, second time, I thought it could be that again, as I have read you can get it twice, but the third time I thought surely not, I could not have got the virus a third time. The third time I even passed some blood.
Now as this all happened since going GF I panicked and stopped the GF so went back to eat it again.
I have not had the episodes since.
I really want to try GF again as I have started getting eczema and hives and want to see if GF will help ease them.
I did wonder if the tummy episodes were because I had been glutened. I know the third time I think I was, as I drank a hot chocolate in a café about an hour or two before the tummy episode. I did not realise hot chocolate contained gluten.
Could these tummy episodes have been from been glutened, because if it was, then it was a very severe reaction.
My thought is though if it were then, why did I not have an episode when I went back to eating gluten.
Any advice would be really appreciated.
