      Wow, how scary to be told you may have ALS!! Thank goodness that is not the case--Celiac is treatable and I'm very grateful for that also. A good friend of mine made it to the gluten-free fair this past May (I was too sick to go at the time) and really enjoyed it, so I want to go next year and would like to meet up with you if you are there also. I do feel very fortunate that there is so much available that is gluten free. I'm going to contact Nancy and appreciate the advice...

      Thank you again!!! This is really helpful. My GI doc hasn't been helpful and said that I may have IBS on top of celiac. I've heard the IBS diagnosis for the last 10 years and my symptoms have continued to get worse. I don't feel that he is taking me seriously. So it's time to move on.
      Best of luck to you !

      Grand Rapids, Mi Area Doc?
      Hi, I was diagnosed with celiac by a GI doc 8 months ago after having biopsies done during an endoscopy. I have been gluten free since but am not noticing improvement in the amount of stomach and muscle/bone pains I have. I am also getting flare ups, every 3-4 weeks, that keep me in bed for a few days at a time with worse symptoms. So I'm really motivated to want to feel better! Does anyone have a doc in this area that has helped them recover?? Thanks much for your help.

      Thanks for your advice. Greatly appreciated. I do take Ultimate Flora Critical Care probiotic. Is there a specific enzyme supplement that anyone has had success with?

      Dealing With Flare Ups
      Hi, I am new to this site but have already found several threads that were very helpful. I was diagnosed with celiac disease 8 months ago and have been gluten free since. I have had moderate to severe stomach problems for many years and have possibly had this since I was a teen. I have been dairy free for most of this time and also went to a food allergist to find out if there were additional foods I should be avoiding. Just about every food I normally eat came up positive. I eliminated all of them and then introduced them gradually. But I do not feel any better than since before I went gluten free. I get extremely bad stomach pains, diarrhea and constipation, intense muscle pains, fatigue, etc. Also, I normally get flare ups, that's what I call it when my symptoms get much worse and I can hardly get out of bed, at least once a month. Wondering if anyone else is going through this and if they have found relief?
