  1. Reading this article and taking a closer look at this research feels like we're moving years backward. http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/next/body/unless-you-have-celiac-disease-gluten-sensitivity-is-probably-just-in-your-head/ Anyone know of any research that contradicts this or at least weakens it?
  2. Thanks Lisa. I get bi-weekly b12 shots and take magnesium supplements. I've never had my Folic Acid checked. I should request a complete panel test to see what's up. 1
  3. Thanks Kamma for the links to those resources and for reassuring me. The symptoms have pretty much cleared up since I last posted...a couple little twitches and tongue nips every 3rd or 4th day, if that...so I must be getting clean. That the reaction is more serious the longer I'm off gluten is becoming quite evident. I'm so over not eating a gluten-filled diet that it doesn't bother me. My next step is to talk to my family doctor about monitoring antigliadin antibodies with blood tests, and if that's even an option under my healthplan. The anxiety has pretty much lifted as well...just some minor irritability left. Again, my gratitude is boundless.
  4. I'm wondering if it's possible to have mild ataxia symptoms that last 2 or 3 weeks after glutinization. I have occasional coordination problems, and slurred speech for a while, then it stops for a day, then comes back...this lasts about 2 or 3 weeks then ends. Other neurological symptoms like twitches, tingles etc come and go too. Anxiety is heightened as well, some of it because I fear other illnesses, but even though I can talk myself out of that intellectually, the anxiety remains.
  5. I've been searching for anwswers on this forum, but haven't quite found out what I'm looking for. I've been gluten-free for 3 years. I went off gluten before being tested so I don't know if I am Celiac or non-celiac gluten intolerant. 2 weeks ago I unknowingly had a big dose of gluten hidden in some food...the usual symptoms GI, muscle pains, happened the next day. The usual anxiety attack happened 2 days later, but this time my tongue feels swollen, my speech is slightly impaired. I thought it was probably the gluten, but the tongue sensation has been fluctuating up and down without quite going away for about 5 days. I've been poking and prodding so much in the soft tissue under my skin that now I don't know if I'm sore from prodding or if my salivary glands are painful and inflamed. If anyone has had slurred speech or a fullness in the tongue from a gluten reaction...can anyone reassure me that the symptom will fade eventually? The problem is the anxiety aggravates my thoughts about what it is and of course I think it's a series of hundreds of other diseases.
