  1. Hmm.  Thanks all!  I still have D almost 4 weeks into this now, but I am taking high supplements, particularly B12 - I take a women's over 40 supplement.  I was deficient in B12, magnesium, and vitamin D.  My stomach was doing much better at the beginning, but this week has been horrible.  Horrible bloating and pains.  I eat nothing but bananas, apples, avocados, peanut butter (my own jar), banana chips, chicken salad (which I got my own mayo jar), popcorn, and water.  I even cut out anything wih sugar substitute like propel and diet green tea.  I only drink water now.  No dairy.  My energy is better, my hair is better, but I am really sad about this setback in abdominal pain.  So it could be overdosing on vitamins you think?  Ugh!!  Thank you everyone!  Sometimes I just fee so alone out there because I just feel like I'm crazy.  I just want to feel great again!
  2. Thanks!  I didn't think of the mayo jar - I do use that same jar to make my kids sandwiches.  I will check out the Newbie 101 thread.  Thanks!
  3. I have experienced all my bad symptoms off and on for about 1.5 years. However, I also had toxic shock syndrome 7 years ago that really screwed me up.  Maybe my symptoms started after that!  My asthma was diagnosed after that too.   My fatigue just recently got really bad over the past 2 months.  I have always taken a daily probiotic, multivitamin, glucosamine, fish oil, B-6, and calcium.  I have checked all those labels, and I changed my multivitamin because it contained gluten.  I just started taking PureEnscapsulations multivitamin.   I am also now taking 2000 mcg of B-12.  I cut out all dairy and gluten almost 2 weeks ago.  I eat a couple hard-boiled eggs for breakfast, a decaf coffee with lactose free milk, homemade chicken salad for lunch and apples, bananas, strawberries, and gluten-free beef jerkey for snacks.  I have chicken or fish with vegetables for dinner - cut out all butter too. I also have made gluten-free pasta with a basic tomato sauce.   I have a glass of red wine at night.  I don't eat any sweets, though I have diet green tea with artificial sweetener.  At this point I am starting to question everything I eat whether I can eat anything!  Thanks for all your guidance!  It's nice to know there's a network I can reach out to!
  4. I have just been diagnosed with Celiac Disease.  I think I have felt bad off and on for years.  I was tested positive through the TTG antibody.  I have been religiously eating both gluten-free and lactose-free for 12 days now, and I still have diarrhea everyday.  My abdominal pain and bloating is definitely improved, though I still have had a couple issues with that too.  I have asthma as well, and since I have been eating gluten-free, my asthma has definitely improved. In terms of fatigue,   I have a good day, then I have a very tired and fatigued day.  My doctor said it could take 6 months to 1 year to heal.  I am just curious for you experienced Celiacs, when you were diagnosed, how long did your symptoms linger?  Was it a long time? Is this perfectly normal and expected?  Can I expect the diarrhea to go away, or still recur often even when eating gluten-free?  I just want to start feeling normal again!  Thanks!
