  1. Thanks for your reply! I will definitely do this. They think it is either a bacteria called Hpylori or diabetes... even though all of the symptoms, so far, havedisappearedwith going off of gluten.
  2. Hello, I have been feeling sick for the last six months, but have been attributing all of my symptoms to a number of other things... My symptoms include: -Absolutely no energy (EVER), particularly after I eat. After a meal I need to lie down. -After every meal (which almost always involved bread) I would feel light headed, almost like my head was in the clouds. -I feelnauseousall of the time and feel the need to vomit for no reason. This is most intense after eating and has finally resulted in only finding relief after I eat by vomiting. - I don't havediarrheaor rashes -A lot of trouble sleeping (tossing and turning), but have recently been diagnosed with sleep apnea -I stopped ovulating 9 months ago and was diagnosed with polycystic ovarian syndrome - I now take a pill to help with this. -bloating with abdominal pain and gas -heartburn often, but only within the last 4 months -I was having numbness in my feet and hands for a while, but haven't experienced this as much in the last 6 months -I also have VERY thin hair (not sure if this would have anything to do with gluten though) I was talking with a friend recently when I had to leave lunch because I felt so ill and she suggested I stop eating gluten. So I decided to stop eating gluten just this past Monday and after only a day I felt so much better. My energy level is like night and day compared to a week ago and I don't feel sick at all (no head in the clouds, or need to vomit). I went to the doctors today to talk to them about this. I heard the doctor talking to the RN in the hall about how this is just a fad and is all the rage with it being in the media so much lately. They are sending me for blood work for a number of things they seemed to befavouringover anything gluten related. From there they said the only way to test for gluten intolerance is to stop eating gluten and see how I feel. They offered to send me for blood work for celiac on Monday - although I will have been off of gluten completely for 1 week by then (will this affect the outcome of the test?). I feel like I'm not getting the proper medical advice/treatment. Any suggestions? Do my symptoms sound familiar to anyone?
