      Thanks everyone. I am just being extremely cautious right now. Twice I have had a doctor tell me something was gluten-free or allergen free, only to get Super sick as soon as I took the meds! I'm going to call Teva next week and see whats up.

      Is This Gluten Free? Can't Find Any Info!
      Ok so I was given the medication metronidazole, this particular one is manufactured by Teva. My doctor and her assistant both tried to look it up for me and neither could find anything on it. The pharmacist was clueless. She did offer to call the company, but it was closing time on Friday so we didn't think anyone would answer. I am so frustrated! It happens like every time I go see the doctor for the most simple issue. There are lists of gluten-free meds online I know, but this wasn't on the list, does that just mean it wasn't available on the market at the time the list was last updated? So tired of this, thanks everyone for reading and hopefully I can get some insight.

    4. pretty in paleo added a post in a topic Has Anyone Tried Aloe Vera Juice   

      Yes it should help soothe and heal the inner lining of your gut because those are practically the same type of cells that skin is made of. Aloe vera is good for healing internally and externally. I drank a lot of aloe vera juice when first dx'd. If you don't like the taste you can always hide it in a fruit smoothie or something.

      Anyone Else Have A Really Random Allergy?
      Among many other foods, I am allergic to oysters, white mushrooms, and straw mushrooms. What makes it seem even more strange is that I tolerate other shellfish just fine. And I can eat some varieties of mushrooms like cremini. Not to mention Oysters and mushrooms are both really healthy for you. Has anybody else discovered they have an allergic reaction to an obscure food like that?

    6. pretty in paleo added a post in a topic Dealing With Being Asymptomatic   

      I am also an asymptomatic Celiac. But while I was eating gluten before my dx I felt horrible all the time. I was afraid to go to the doctor because I thought I might have intestinal cancer. After a few months gluten free I realized I hardly had a reaction anymore. But I know I have celiac, I had every classic symptom plus complications that could not have been anything else, so I avoid it at all costs. Its hard to tell when I've eaten gluten, sometimes my feet and hands ache but even that might only last a couple minutes. Several times I have had random symptoms like itchy skin. By contrast, my other allergies involve hours of intense stomach cramps, nausea, or vomiting.

    7. pretty in paleo added a post in a topic Battling No Food   

      I'm kind of puzzled that you are still going thru this after so many years. That being said, I have totally been in your position. I was starving, my friends had nothing to offer but pizza, and I didn't have money to go to a store nor did I have a ride home. I had packed food but had finished it hours ago. Now, I learned to pack extra food than I need, any time I step outside the house. Even if I'm only driving a short distance away, I think "well, my car could break down and the tow truck guy could take forever!" Plan for the worst, hope for the best. Some of my friends felt bad the last time I had nothing to eat. They said they will take me to the grocery store so I can buy stuff to leave in their cupboard. I noticed you said you don't eat a lot, bad Idea, just eat right before you leave for the day.

      Hi CeliCat! yes this lifestyle is a huge adjustment but it gets better as you go along. I have been doing this gluten free thing for over 1 1/2 years so I pretty much achieved expert status by now There are a lot of things you can try for your mood. Dairy comes from a pregnant animal so it has a whole bunch of pregnancy-related hormones, especially GMO dairy. Caffeine and alcohol may also affect your moods. Try giving up these foods at least for a couple weeks or so. If you have  a question about celiac or gluten free, feel free to send me a message

    10. pretty in paleo added a post in a topic Glutened By Restaurant- Is It Fair To Ask For Money Back?   

      I guess you can try for a refund but they will either say 'you cant prove you were sick because of us' or ' if your that sensitive you shouldn't put faith in other people prepare your food'. If I were you I would just let them know be more careful for the sake of future celiacs who eat there. And don't eat there again, yourself.

    11. pretty in paleo added a post in a topic Do Celiac Symptoms Change From Childhood To Adulthood?   

      Absolutely. My mom says that she remembers seeing changes in my health even when I was 9 years old, at the time it was D and behavior problems that were misdiagnosed as ADHD. By the time I was diagnosed a couple weeks before entering college, my symptoms were totally different: constipation, heart burn, stabbing pains after eating, almost fainting, shortness of breath....well, its a very long list. I also was always a skinny kid but then started to get sort of a belly, which is gone now, yay!

      I have had those dreams too lol. The ones where I take a big bite of something breaded, and don't even taste it because I am overwhelmed with horror at the error I just made ! Then fear of what symptoms I will get.

    13. pretty in paleo added a post in a topic Need To Vent About My Own Stupidity!   

      You are most definitely not the only one! At a party I was being pushed to 'just try a little' of this lady's special dip. Everyone else tried it and were scowling at me expectantly. I figured I would just have a dab on the end of a veggie stick....WRONG. Whatever the hell it had, I was gassy , bloated and had heartburn nonstop for hours, I had to go home early because it was was getting embarrassing. Never made that mistake again lol.
