  1. Good to hear.  Praying the Lord will continue carrying!  Eloise, you have to get better enough to get up and read this!   Diana
  2. I do get this symptom, but I feel it may be due to allergies.   Are you sure you don't have an allergy to your tooth paste or some air freshener, or something in the bathroom?  Allergies sometimes also make me feel dizzy or foggy brained.   Dee
  3. I get a mysterious spasm in my left shoulder, but nobody has been able to explain to me why.  I don't know if it is the same.  My muscles began to ache from gluten exposure before diagnosis.  Also, my doctor told me that it seems I had suddenly lost all muscle tone and she didn't know why.  It seems like you are carefully analyzing your diet and disciplining yourself, I wish you well in your healing.   I had a problem with tremor for years, but magnesium helped.  My doctor also recommends it for muscle spasms, so I am not sure why it isn't helping you.   Dee
  4. Help With Test Results

    I don't think that anyone approached the late onset of periods.  I have 5 girls so here goes:   Recently I told my doctor that I had started my period when I was 15.  She made the sigh I often hear when I mention this to doctors.  She felt that it was unusually late.  She furthermore went on to state that the age of onset has gone down in recent years, so that they expect the first period at 10 years old.  That surprised me as my girls have been into their teens before having theirs.  One of my girls is not a biological child and just started her period at 10 years of age.  I had two of my adult children tested for celiac disease and the results were negative. One has very low ferritin level and I am still suspicious, but what can you do?
  5. What Is Super Sensitive?

    I would like to say also, that if one has been sick a very long time, it can take more than 6-12 months.  The situation can be complicated with other food intolerances or results of the illness.  I had been sick for 30+ years and still felt I am transitioning after 3 years.  I don't want to discourage anyone making them think it will take that long, but only explain that sometimes it does.
  6. I am so happy to hear this!   Dee
  7. I Haven't Forgotten You

    I hope Ravenwoodglass that you will gain strength and energy!
  8. I Haven't Forgotten You

    Greetings,   I sure hope you are well.  I miss bunches of you and are wondering if you are still on.  As for me, I discovered that my problems included super-sensitive allergies, so believing that I could never really tell if my reactions were due to celiac or the allergies, decided I may as well go talk to someone about allergies.  So, If you could please, check in here and tell me how you are doing:    Oh, incase you are wondering, I have been looking and feeling better.  I am a little afraid of having reactions to nearby silos again this year, but am taking one day at a time. If I do have trouble, I am going to take notice right away and head to the doctor to have my thyroid checked.  I think it goes down, but haven't been tested except when I am feeling good.  I am back to working in the garden and mostly with a smile on my face.  This year I plan to be able to eat the produce due to allergy treatments working.   Bartful I hope you will be feeling well again soon Designerstubble, May you have peace, Mamaw Thanks for caring   Many others of you I wonder about:.   I wish everyone the best in healing.   Dee
  9. What Supplements Do Take?

    Oh, Across, I hope you are doing well   Pro-biotic digestive enzymes iron L-Argenine (for breaking up plaque. Magnesium   I am showing allergies to everything else which I had been taking.
  10. I'm Back And I'm Sick

    Sorry, to hear this Bartful.  Hoping you will feel better soon.   Dee
  11. Tears In The Grocery Store Again.

    [size=5]At the grocery store the other day, I checked out the meats. I noticed a package of turkey breast, which I use to frequently buy before I found out I had allergies to it. I absently passed on by.. I got a few feet away and stopped dead. "Wait" I told myself; I can have turkey! I turned and took a couple of steps back. Oh, right, I thought as I turned away again, but what fun are turkey nuggets without breading? I haven't had breading for months. I walked away. "But wait!" I got almonds back and can make breading with that! Tears in my eyes, I bounced over to pick some out! I felt like I had won a big contest. :P[/size]   [size=5]Maybe it was worth losing foods, so that I won't take them for granted when they get them back. :unsure: I had antibodies to nearly everything I ate over the years. I tested out super-sensitive to nearly everything. NAET started addressing these sensitivities beginning with basic nutrients such as vitamin B, Vitamin C, and sugar. At the end of the basic treatments I started multiplying foods back in. [/size]   [size=5]Several months back now, I told of a plan to try NAET treatments for my allergies. Quite a few things happened with that and I have been off while I am busy learning and talking about NAET. One readded food is coconut water, which last summer's attempts to drink brought immediate noises from the tummy and a rush to the bathroom. Now, when I drink it, the tummy is silent. Last year, my skin reacted for weeks when I got scraped by raspberry bushes. This year no reaction. Thus I am experiencing profound changes and feel hopeful I will be able to eat most anything (but gluten) in the near future.[/size]   [size=5][size=5]Yesterday my brother in law declared. "Dee, you look like you are so much better than a couple of years back. You just look like you feel so much better." Indeed, I sat watching the soccer game with a ready smile on my face. I felt good. Many things have worked together for my healing[/size]. I am happy that NOW extended family and family alike can see the blessed changes in my life. Recovery, has been complicated and long, but I have been carried through.[/size]   [size=5]Keep on keeping on fellow battlers. [/size]
  12. Questioning My Daughter.

    As a mother I would say you better have it checked!  If you test for celiac it might be better to have a few gluten items at the house for her to snack on to prepare for testing.  I would do both blood tests and have a dermatologist check the rash.   Dee
  13. Low Stomach Acid? Need Advice!

    I used HCL under the guidance of a functional medicine nurse.  These helped me break down my food better and after some time I didn't need them any more.    Dee
  14. I am hoping you FINALLY get your definitive diagnosis, Val.  I am hoping you will feel better SOON.    Dee
