Gluten Challenge

I Just Want To Scream

Posted by Porcelina, 10 December 2013 - - - - - - · 1,365 views

Test came back 'normal' even though IGG and IGA was in the normal/high range after a 7 week test (previously I was almost gluten free for a year). My ALP was normal/low.

To even speak to a specialist for a biopsy would take at least 6 months. There is no way I can continue with this challenge as depression has set in, my skin rashes on my legs looks horr...

Week 7

Posted by Porcelina, 28 November 2013 - - - - - - · 860 views

Constant aches and pains. I always have a stomach ache, my knees hurt, I want to go to bed by 8pm and I'm taking ibuprofens a few times a week to help my headaches. On top of that, at week 5, I started to develop this facial rash that is intensely itchy on my jaw bone and is red and blotchy on my whole cheek area. It almost looks like psoriasis. Can DH a...

Day Thirty One

Posted by Porcelina, 15 November 2013 - - - - - - · 1,065 views

Alright. So its been a month since I've started doing the challenge and now my the tip of my thumb is starting to crack and peel. Now, some of this is to blame on the cold weather, but I DO recall that when I was almost gluten free last year, my thumb hardly split at all.

I am FINALLY free of that cold/laryngitis thing. That only took about two weeks to...

Day Twenty Two

Posted by Porcelina, 06 November 2013 - - - - - - · 763 views

I'm still not over this cold/laryngitis. Just when I thought it was over, WHAM! I'm totally fatigued again today and my throat is tightening up. I also noticed that a lymph node at the back of my neck has become swollen. I remember as a kid I used to have swollen nodes in my neck ALL the time and my doctor making a comment on it.

As for symptoms, I'm eit...

Day Nineteen

Posted by Porcelina, 03 November 2013 - - - - - - · 755 views

So this 'cold' turned into laryngitis. I had to leave work on Friday because it hurt too much to talk. On Saturday I just napped and took it easy. However, early this morning at around 1:30am, I had a migraine that almost lead to me throwing up.

I also had insomnia during this whole ordeal, which is probably why the cold turned into laryngitis.

I'm also...

Day Fourteen

Posted by Porcelina, 29 October 2013 - - - - - - · 836 views

I didn't eat gluten all day until dinner time. I didn't want to because all day I had stomach cramps. The cramps have begun...
I ate a peanut butter sandwich for dinner and within 30 minutes I was wincing from the pain. So not good.

And sorry boys, skip this part as this may be a bit TMI, but I started midcycle spotting again. I always thought it was gra...

Days Twelve And Thirteen

Posted by Porcelina, 28 October 2013 - - - - - - · 667 views

So exactly 24 hours later, just like clockwork, on day 12, a migraine sets in. I'm assuming the pizza because that's what I pigged out on 24 hours earlier. I was also very sore under my armpits and chest, like I was either coming down with the flu or had done push ups the previous day (which I had not).

Today, day 13, I went to the chiropractor as my bac...

Day Ten

Posted by Porcelina, 28 October 2013 - - - - - - · 680 views

Had a regular customer of mine ask me if I was feeling ok today while at work. I asked her why and she told me I had really dark circles under my eyes and I looked tired.

Starting to get stomach cramps after each meal where gluten is consumed.

Day Eleven

Not much different other than I enjoyed some licorice and pizza hut for the first time in a couple of years. Very tired by 9 pm, but that could be from the excessive couch potato mode I was in. It was girls weekend, so horror films and junk food were in full pursuit.

Day Nine

Heartburn, headaches, fatigue and now eczema on my face is acting up. How lovely.
