  1. Hi...I have been gluten free for over a week and I seem to just be getting worse! I had to take a xanax today just so the pounding heart would stop and I could take care if my kids. Any idea if this is normal? I am not diagnosed...just tring to be healthier and feel better. It does not seem right that lack of gluten in making me feel this bad! It has been a week and I feel too crappy to do anything! Any advice would help! Thanks
  2. Thanks so much for your reply. Aside from this website I feel so alone in this issue. I have been eating brown rice, tomatos, cheese, gluten-free pretzels, gluten-free acai sorbet, frozen veggies(not marked gluten-free but i assume they are, right?), chicken (cooked in olive oil in a pan i washed very well), frozen blueberries...not much else. The D occurred after the chicken, cheese, veggie meal. It had to be something in that. I have three kids so I am no stranger to the somach viruses but this feels nothing like that. Ugh. Have I set myself back so far or ma I feel ok again tomorrow. This is really hard! lol Thanks again for any help!
  3. I have been gluten free for 8 days. I have felt like I had the flu for most of them but my stomach was fine. I have not had D in a looong time even before going gluten free. I felt great today and thought I finally turned a corner. Then, right after dinner I had awful D with gas and stomach rumbling. ugh. Why would D start now? Did I get glutened? Or is this just another stage in the gluten withdrawl? Anyone have a similar experience?
  4. Thanks for your reply. Since I have been having awful withdrawl I am not sure I want to go back to gluten just for testing. From what I read the diagnosis is really hard even with test results. If I feel better in a few weeks I think I will just chalk it up to gluten, huh? I also read that a gluten free diet is good for everyone, even if they don't need it? I am looking for a few good books about celiac/gluten intolerance...any ideas? Thanks!
  5. Hi! I am new here and I am one week gluten free. I feel like crap. For the last 5 years (after three c sections within 4 years) I have been suffering with depression and anxiety. It has gotten so bad lately that I thought I was going to die during a panic attack. Very scary when you are driving three kids around. I cam across this board and some of the symptoms described here seem like exactly what I have been experiencing. For several years I have always had to stay close to the toilet after meals. I have stopped going out to dinner, etc..That has happened for a few years. I started taking probiotics and my stomach problems decreased somewhat. This year the anxiety started. Is there anyone out there that had more depression/anxiety symptoms that were "cured" by going gluten free? I am desparate for help. Also is there any advice on how to get through the gluten withdrawl? Seems the anxiety is worse since stopping gluten but I think this is temporary... Thanks in advance for any help!
