      I just wanted to thank the original poster of this thread.
      After reading this I will be calling my Dr in the morning. I thought hair loss, fatigue and weird vision were something that will eventually go away. (I have been gluten-free since last Aug)
      But none of them have.

      Thanks Skylark. I mentioned early menopause to my Dr and she doesnt think so.
      I just wish I was never sick again.

      I was born in the UK and grew up in NZ.
      I looked at the soy allergy you posted and was surprised that that is a lot of what I have. Going to call my Dr on Monday and ask about being tested.

      Day 86 Of Going gluten-free And Not Feeling Good, Help?
      I am now on day 86 of being gluten-free and its been going ok. I have my up and down days, but I hear thats normal.
      The past few days I have not been feeling well. I dont know whether its celiac related or im just getting sick.
      I just spoke with my gastro (his assistant) she said it doesnt sound like anything celiac but she would ask him when he gets back, the end of this month. So I made an appt with my primary Dr today.
      I feel weird, my face is hot and at times red. I feel blood rushing through me, sometimes my heart pounds (heartbeat loud) or it races fast. I have no temp, even though I feel weird.
      I drink at least 67ounces of water a day, if not more. I write everything down and keep track of what I eat. Nothing there.
      Im also 40, my Mum said she had the 'change' early.
      I guess the main reason im writing this is to see if any other women have had this happen.
      I otherwise feel ok. Just weird. Is it menstral related?
      Thanks for any advice.

      Oh man. I will call their Dr 2moro and see what they say.
      They are terrified of having blood drawn.

      Thank you. I really appreciate ANY and ALL help.
      I do live with my husband and 2 children (5 & 8). I am the only one living gluten-free. I was told to test them both, but dont see a need at this point. If they start showing symptoms then I definately will.

      Yes, I have had a lot of my symptoms go away in the past 4 weeks. I guess I just want them ALL gone, yesterday.

      I was beginning to wonder if I was getting gluten, but couldnt figure out how. I am writing down everything I eat. To help with possible contamination. I email or call on anything new I eat. Im so worried about getting sick again.
      I also have canker sores in my mouth, more on my tongue and my teeth are really sensitive. Is this also normal?
      I REALLY appreciate your help. I feel quite lost in this huge gluten world.

    12. KiwiBrit added a post in a topic What Symptoms Did You Not Even Realize Were Symptoms?   

      This can affect your teeth? Oh my. I am newly diagnosed and the last few weeks I am noticing my teeth are VERY sensitive.
      I have numbness in my hands and feet. Its driving me crazy! I really hope this is also part of it and it goes away.
      My body literally 'crashed' the end of June (long story) and since being on a gluten-free diet for 4 weeks I am already doing SOOOO much better.
      I miss my energy. The vertigo was awful.
      Ok, rambled enough. Thanks for listening.

      Is It Normal.... still have symptoms after following the gluten free diet for 4 weeks?

      I am still getting numbness in my hands and feet and headaches. Compared to what I had 4 weeks ago, its lovely.
      Thanks for any information.

    14. KiwiBrit added a post in a topic Pretty Sure I Have Celiac   

      Finally got my test results back. All came out negative (which she thought they might). She said that since I am feeling much better following the celiac diet, that no more testing is needed. She said to call her if anything changes.
      Thanks for your support.
