      What's Going On?
      I am gluten sensitive and had cut out wheat for several months and started getting my period again, feeling great etc. Over the past few months, I've been cheating a bit in eating a bite of wheat here or there in things such as potato chips, chicken nuggets etc. Now I've noticed that I am feeling very tired again, and have gone back to having no periods. Can this really be just from having the ODD cheat of wheat here and there? I am not celiac as I tested negative for that.

      So I am on day 4 now and I cannot believe how great I feel already!!! I have sooo much more energy, my chronic nausea is GONE, no more stomach pains and I don't feel tired and I even sleep better - the strangest thing was after 1 day of no wheat I got a period and I have not had one in a year!! They always said it was PCOS! I can't believe I am 31 and now can finally feel better!!!!!

      My name is Melissa and I am 31 years old, for the past 12 years or so, I have been struggling with constant stomach issues. I have the following chronic issues: nausea, loose stools, stomach pains, bloating, migraines and loss of monthly periods. I do suffer from cysts on my ovaries - PCOS. I have had almost every test done under the sun over the years and have been admitted to the hospital several times for what was suspected gull bladder attacks but it has never been removed. I've been told over the years that I have IBS, Fatty Liver, Acid Reflux - you name it I'm sure its been told to me. I've even been described once in the hospital as a "medical mystery". Recently, my neice has been diagnosed with biposy positive Celiac Disease which made me start to wonder more about my issues possibly could be Celiac related. I started the process of investigating with the routine blood test which came back negative and my levels were so low that my doctor said they would never grant an invasive test like a stomach biposy for someone exhibiting such low levels. I've just decided that starting December 1st I am going to begin eliminating wheat from my diet to see how I'm feeling.Without going into explicit details, I was wondering if anyone out there experienced anything like this? I just want to start feeling better sooner than later and I'm at my wits end and feel like this is the final step and if I dont start feeling better than what?? I'd appreciate any feed back from anyone.
