      I have gone Gluten Free because it reduced my pain with fibro. I have found all kinds of good gluten-free food lasagna made by Ceasers some cheese some vegetable lasagna. I still eat pizza Gluten Free I buy the crusts and make them up the way I like with 3 or 4 different cheeses. I eat lots fruits and vegetables now, which I didn't do before. I take lots of vitamins especially vitamin C&D. I have noticed some hair loss with this diet. I am going to get some vitamins for my hair. I am learning to live without bread& crackers which is very difficult, although easier then dealing with pain. They have all kinds of gluten free foods in the grocery stores now.
      Chex puts out a nice cinnamon cereal. I will snack on that in place of my crackers. I have had to retrain my brain. I was always a picky eater. It is just a matter of getting use to it. Bisquick puts out a gluten-free mix for pancakes &etc.. I buy gluten-free waffles. The Italian style gluten-free bread I think is the best one. The bread needs some perfecting LOL! I found gluten-free brownie mixes. I never lost any weight going gluten-free.

      OMG, I had a doctor who I asked 5yrs ago to run the Celiac Test and he told me I did not have Celiacs. I have been sick for years finally got my disability and went to a GI doctor at Johns Hopkins told him all of my complaints he looked and me and said you have Celiac Diseae. I went back to the doctor and told him what I have and said Mmmm I do not know much about Celiacs Disease, I was ready to give him the riot act. I swear it just makes you wonder. He had referred me to a neurologist and you could read the body language. I know he told her I was just a complainer needless to say I did not return to see her. Found a good neurologist one at Johns Hopkins. I was able to get a fresh start with out my former doctor ear bending the doctors. I swear I think he just wanted me to stay sick. He has destroyed me finacially. I do not understand why he would not write the order for the blood work I was paying out of pocket. I could have been better 5yrs ago What a Jerk!
      I have been diagnoised with fibro, trigeminal neuralgia, rheum and mental issues. I knew they were all wrong. I kept telling them it was that. Then I was told I do not listen. Thank God I didn't because they were the idiots ! Now that I have gone Gluten Free I am feeling better. I will know at the end of Sept how much damage is done after the colonoscopy. I was given chemo also I kept telling them I think I am allergic to it because my throat swelled shut for 4 days. Could not eat with projctile vomiting. They told me that was impossible. I knew something and the meds did not agree with me !! I found out the meds contained wheat products ~ Well that is why doctors call it Practice ! They really do not know as much as they think they do.
      My family thought I was lazy and faking. No compassion from my friends along with being sick I had to battle with family and friends and doctors. I was ready to give up soon ~
      Just amazing how people can do ya ~ I could never do to people the way people did me !
      Good luck I hope you are doing better.

      I understand that feeling. I do not feel I am reliable anymore. I do not know from minute to minute how I am going to feel.
      Really do not like to commit to anything including going somewhere with a friend. I take a 2mg valium at night before I go to bed that helps with the spasms. I get a lot of facial pain sometimes I a have to take 10mg of flexaril. I go to the massage school for a cheap massage that really helps with the muscle spasms. I do not even want to do volunteer work because I just never know how I am going to feel. I need to see a nutritionist to help me get the right balance in my diet. It is all over the place. I started taking walks and that does help with the anxiety and leg pain.
