Thanksfoe posting about this, I follow strictest gluten free eating and I know I have been gluttened somehow, had 13 days chronic Diarhea, cannot leave house, cannot go up to hospital see my new born grandson, am reduced tears and I never cry. Feels like 7 months ago before celiac diagnosis, scares me that I will relaspe get wrdsw worse again.I am going to live on chicken broth, roast chicken, gluten free yogurt, blandest foods see if I can pull myself out of this nightmare.

Ugh! Been gluten-free about 2 weeks, Monday & Tuesday felt great like Super-Woman,loads energy did lot long neglected chores at home,then wednesday through today feel so sick,worse,like flu.Dizzy-off balance, digestion big `D`,woozy,had headache yesterday which is rare for me,drinking maalox,woke up shakes & trips to bathroom today,keep feeling balance-like falling feeling.Cannot live like this.What is wrong,was sick non stop since March is what landed me at GI Dr.`s bloodwork high-strong positive celiac & endoscopy with biopsies,also discovered small hiatel hernia & stricture gastroesophogeal juncture[inflammation swollen shut esophogus].Only had one accidental Glutenning & that was yesterday=drank half a Dannon yogurt Frusion smoothie, found out not gluten free,sick within minutes, is that possible to get so violently sick so fast? I do find solace and comfort in reading forum posts on here seeing not alone. Terri
Big Mistake, didn`t have my `Cecelia`s Grocery market Gluten free Guide` on me and purchased Dannon Frusion smoothies banana strawberry. I had just left doctor`s office from having a fasting bloodwork and here it was 1pm needed something drink fast, so downed half in car.Got home put away groceries and Wham, dizzy, nauseous,feel like flu,run to bathroom, shakes.Only plain low fat dannon is glutten free. Can I really feel this sick from 1/2 smoothie? I cannot live like this. I rarely get headaches maybe 2X year sinus type, back head hurting,so woozy.Drinking Maalox.Wish had magic pill. Terri

Godfathers can order hot baked gluten free pizzas available or fronzen to bake at home later. Terri
Thanks for load of info on ataxia above post, neurologists have worse bedside manner of any Docs [downright mean, arrogant, condenscending, belittle you],, brings to mind an episode of the Golden Girls when Dorothy finally gets diagnosed with Epstein Barr Virus and tells off her original doctor who said she was nuts and wanted to find something wrong and be sick. Terri
Yes , you are so right that they are or need to recognize `gluten-sensitivity` especially if had bloodwork show strong-high-positive.
The experts say the following "Clinically pertinent coeliac disease exists despite normal small-bowel mucosal villous architecture. Mucosal transglutaminase 2-specific IgA deposits can be utilized in detecting such patients with genetic gluten intolerance."
Like you quote I am not a Celiac, i have celiac disease but that is not who I am. Well dang it I am going through rough patch again [newly diagosed], and I feel like I am the celiac disease, want to get a handle on this and live life outside the house & restroom again like a `hermit`as you so perfectly coined it.Bad days put in in panic mode, so afraid of relapsing and geting deathly ill for 12 weeks as I was from March-June this year before GI docs figured out lot of what was going on. Suspected intestinal virus that brought or triggered Celiac out of hiding, also small hiatel hernia & splinter gastroesophageal junction [swollen inflammed esophogus].
Learn so much valuable info from all of you who have been through this.I am supposed be the strong helpful one yet grown daughters have been put in charge of hosting all family gatherings etc because mom is always sick. Best advice I saw lately on forums here is eat simple whole plain live foods to start, I bought a whole range gluten free trying to substitute and have meals as normal as used to be & finding even though ingredients are gluten free I cannot tolerate anything tomato based in sauces, eggs, milk, no onions peppers, etc..Investigating L-Glutamine as reasearch shows excellent for healing intestines and stomach lining, and some digestive enzymes.
Envy that you are more highly functioning and able to work. Your great attitude shows in your posts. Thanks for sharing,Terri
