How is your wife. I agree - you must get an MRI. Morning vomitting especially can indicate a brain tumor! (It did in my child, she has cancer.) Please get checked out. Karen R.
Even the drug she is taking for migranes might have gluten in it -- check with the manufacturer...Also, she may be allergic to the medicine or even some other food. She could try an elimination or rotation diet to try to identify the food. Try to get a second opinion with another doctor though -- I have found that there can be a *wide* range in quality of care from dr. to dr.
Kelly, are you absolutely sure you're gluten-free? There are a heck of a lot of sources of hidden gluten. My husband is really a stickler when it comes to GF, but he's gotten hit many times from things that were cross-contaminated in the plant in which they were processed. In addition, after attending a food safety conference in Las Vegas, he found there are many sources of foods he's going to have to be VERY careful of. Many foods (corn, etc) can be transported in the same trucks and stored in the same silos as wheat, rye, etc., so we've had to cut out things unless they're completely fresh. We get oats from glutenfreeoats.com and he seems to be okay with those. But many people aren't. There a small protein in oats that some may react to.
Spices can contain flour, as can other things I initially didn't realize. We've also found out the hard way that there can be flour mixes that are GF, but if they contain cornstarch he breaks out.
Also consider checking to see if she's cross-reactive to casein, the major protein in dairy. Many celiacs are.
But there are some celiacs who don't respond to diet, unfortunately. If that's the case please check back with your doc.
It is me again-has anyone checked for a brain tumor? It can cause all her symptoms. Debi
I am so sorry about your wife. Has anyone checked her pancreas? That can cause vomiting and weight loss. It seems like she needs to go to a specialist. I don't know where you live, but I would get a referral to a large medical center who specializes in GI issues. Don't just take what your doctor says. If he can't figure out what it is, go elsewhere. I don't know what you beliefs are, but you may want to try a medical intuitive-that and a really good doctor helped me. Keep fighting because someone will be able to figure this out. I assume an MRI or other scans have been done. Good luck-Debi
