  1. Wow! Thanks everyone. I'm feeling more motivated now and I'm going straight to (Company Name Removed - They Spammed This Forum and are Banned) to buy some books. It's a relief to learn that I'm not the only one who has had horrible experiences with Doctors. It's devastating to keep hearing that they can't find anything wrong with me...but still knowing deep down that something is wrong and I'm way to young to be living like this (mid 20's). It's caused me to slip into a slight depression and It's finally catching up with me. I haven't taken a gluten-free diet very seriously until now. I think due to the negative experiences with Doctor's lack of a diagnosis, I was kinda skeptical that I found the answer on my own... but now after doing just a little bit of research I'm convinced that going gluten-free is my answer! Now I just have to stay positive and educate myself! But everyday has been a battle. I was craving greasy breaded food the other day and my sweet Husband went out and bought a little frier and made me chicken fingers using gluten-free all purpose flour and crushed up gluten-free corn flakes... but I learned the hard way that there was gluten in my BBQ sauce that I dipped my wonderful chicken fingers in! UGH! It's gonna be a roller coaster ride isn't it!
  2. Hi! I'm new to this forum and very new to being Gluten-free! I haven't been diagnosed yet with celiac or a gluten allergy, but I've been dealing with major symptoms and negative doctor's tests for years. I've been tested for lupus, lymes, cushings, B12 deficiency, etc... I found out that a friend of mine with similar problems/symptoms and negative test results said a gluten-free diet has helped her a ton... so here I am! It's been about 1 month trying to live gluten-free and I can already tell a difference in my symptoms. Actually, I'm still learning what does and doesn't have gluten in it, and I can tell when I have gluten... the symptoms I didn't even know were related to my diet always come back. So I guess you can say I've been self-diagnosed. However, I'm getting very overwhelemed and comfused. I don't know where to start or how to educate myself (other than finding this forum by googling "is there gluten in ____(fill in the blank)" I guess what I'm asking is where should I start... I don't have time to google everything I need to know, and plus there's so much confusing information on the internet these days. Can anyone recommend a book or something that helped you get on track? I'd really appreciate it! Thanks!!!
  3. What type/brand of magnesium suppliment do you take? Can you get it at a normal pharmacy?
  4. I'm very new to a gluten-free diet and I've discovered I had a reaction to Mugs diet root beer. Very upseting since I love it so much. I didn't realize it at first, but I had major fogginess and then an intense headache. Can anyone explain the ingredient that I should look out for in other sodas? I've read the Mugs diet RB ingredients and I can't figure it out. Thanks!!
