mrstrishch added a topic in Gluten-Free Foods, Products, Shopping & MedicationsBeen Trying To Find Condiments, Etc.After looking through the posts here and several lists I've come up with a few safe possibilities that our local grocers carry. Thought I should post just in case I'm wrong and one of these sends up a red flag with somebody.
Heinz 57 Ketchup
LaChoy Soy Sauce
Any Newman's Own salad dressings
I'm very new at this and am going very simple to begin with - plain meats, fresh fruits and veggies, plain yogurt, brown rice, plain rice cakes w/Jif, etc. Then every day trying to find a few foods that look good to add back into my diet. I figured that was the best way to not feel so overwhelmed! Thanks for any help!

mrstrishch added a topic in Gluten-Free Foods, Products, Shopping & MedicationsWhat Questions Do I Ask When Calling?I've been taking supplements and ibuprofen bought from Sam's Club for some time, but just went gluten-free. I've searched the net and also tried finding info here but haven't come up with anything. Figured I ask before trying to locate a phone number and calling. If no one knows I will certainly do the calling around and then let you all know. Thanks bunches!

mrstrishch added a topic in Celiac Disease - Pre-Diagnosis, Testing & SymptomsCeliac Misdiagnosed As Fibromyalgia?Hello all! I'm new here... just found you all a few days ago, but have been reading and reading since then. WOW, so much here!
Anyhoo... I was reading an article in a magazine a couple of weeks ago about celiac disease and it said that at least 15% of people who have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia actually turn out to have celiac instead. Woah... that's quite a lot in my opinion. Well, I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia almost 10 years ago, have had symptoms for over 12 years. Things just continue to go down hill. After reading that article I started researching on the internet. It seems I have quite a few of the symptoms of celiac, but I've had so many dr.'s in the past basically think I'm a hypochondriac that I don't want to bring this up quite yet. I actually didn't dr. at all for over 5 years and just recently went to a new dr. because of pain and depression. She's very understanding of the fibro, and I don't want to look like a hypochondriac again. Soooooooooooo...
I'm going gluten-free for a while. I figure if there's a 15% chance that this could be the problem after all, then it's worth a try. If there is a noticeable difference then I'll talk to a dr. about it.
How long does it take to see results?
Has anyone else dealt with being misdiagnosed with fibromyalgia?
My mom has been diagnosed with fibromyalgia as well (several years before I was), and one of my sons (16yo) shows symptoms and another son (18yo) has problems concentrating that have always been attributed to borderline ADD (he doesn't have the hyper part). I'm trying not to get my hopes up that this might be what's wrong with all of us... something that actually has a chance of being treated by diet and leave us feeling better than we have in years. wow... trying not to go there.
