Tishalulle replied to Tishalulle's topic in Celiac Disease - Post Diagnosis, Recovery/Treatment(s)I was tested for celiac (and it was negative) by my new doctor at the time she tested me for everything under the sun. I absolutely adore this new doc. After years of doctors who never ran extensive tests even though I had thyroid symptoms I'm wondering if the reaction was because of having no gluten for nearly two weeks and then getting a little bit into me?
Tishalulle posted a topic in Celiac Disease - Post Diagnosis, Recovery/Treatment(s)I was recently diagnosed with Hashimoto's and my doctor has said that step #1 for treatment plan is to go gluten free. It has been a week and a half and I have been VERY good. But the night before last night I was making a flavored rice mix for dinner, checked the ingredients and everything. I tasted the rice a few times while cooking to see if it was done and then when I went to throw away the box I saw (in TINY letters) "contains wheat". I skipped eating it with dinner. But had heartburn that night that got worse into yesterday had some loose stools at work (UUUGH hate going at work) and then I got extremely tired and felt like the world was spinning. As if I had too many drinks. I understand the stomach issues being related but has anyone had this strange spinning thing happen? I am concerned that I may need to go to my doctor if something else is going on. I had to call in sick to work today and have not left the bed except to take a shower that resulted in me sitting down because I was so dizzy. This is all very new to me and the other side of things (the Hashimoto's) has me so worried/scared/sad, etc. I was misdiagnosed 9 months ago with Fibromyalgia by a doctor who did NO testing beyond checking me for the 18 sensitive points. This was after 4 years of a previous doctor just prescribing vicodin. I am glad to be getting proper diagnosis and treatment but I am still scared.
