  9. Gluten/anxiety/how Quickly Symptoms Disappear

    I take it back about feeling better…but I know it is just a matter of time until I do.   Oh, and by the way…this is what I ate:
  10. Gluten Free Shampoo

    I use Hugo Naturals:   Be prepared for the sulfate free experience through…it can be quite different if you haven't used it before.  Definitely buy conditioner too.
  11. Does anyone go to Starbucks/Dunkin/Caribou for coffee?    I would imagine that the "safest" drink would be regular coffee, but that's SO boring, right?   What about like a skim milk coffee latte with no syrups or flavoring?    
  12. Gluten/anxiety/how Quickly Symptoms Disappear

    This was all so helpful…it's such a relief to know others feel the same I do.  I especially feel doubted/questioned by non-gluten intolerant/Celiac people others because I am self-diagnosed.  Anyway…thank you! I already do feel better.  There have been a few things that could have had gluten I realized…I ate like 4 of those ice cream snickers bars too and I thought the hash brown brand Alexia was gluten free, but I just read that they cannot guarantee it anymore.  I am still trying to figure out the level of gluten that I react to, but I guess I am just assuming that it is anything and everything, even cross-contamination, until I am proved wrong.  Also, I haven't been taking even a multivitamin, so I am at least going to start that too…
  13. Gluten/anxiety/how Quickly Symptoms Disappear

    Good to know about absorption.... It is considered normal for the scalp to burn like that when needing to lift enough to go platinum. That being said, I think it's my last time! The tingling is gluten. I get it every time I have gluten and it goes away. Same with the anxiety. Mine actually goes away. Just trying to think now if it could be from something I are weeks ago or if I had something else more recently. It always feels like my symptoms take a long time to show up and last a long time. Does anyone else have that?
  14. Okay…so I am new to all of this and I am self-diagnosed. I couldn't go to a doctor to verify my gluten intolerance/Celiacs because I had too severe of anxiety to even want to leave the house, much less go to a doctor's office. However, I am 100% (more like one billion percent) sure that I react to gluten.  My symptoms prior to starting gluten-free diet: rash on arms and legs (which I had been to 3-4 different doctors for prior to gluten-free diet), Raynaud's phenomenon, tingling legs and arms (also fell asleep), loss of enamel on my teeth, and panic attacks/ anxiety.  Within probably 1-2 weeks my rash and Raynaud's went away completely (AMAZING!).  Anxiety went away more slowly but DRAMATICALLY better.    I have been gluten-free for about 1 year now. Each time I get glutened, I experience symptoms of course.    However, I recently did something REALLY dumb. I drank an Odwalla that was not a gluten free one. In fact, a predominant ingredient was a wheat ingredient.  I drank the entire thing.    Now, this has happened right after Christmas, but I feel like I am STILL feeling it.  Is this possible? I have terrible anxiety - the kind that makes me thing…"oh yeah this is how terrible this feels"…because I have had the joy of forgetting over the past months. But on top of that, over the last two weeks, I have started to feel queasy and get headaches.    Another option this could be that I just got my hair colored. I went platinum and highly doubt that any of the products were gluten free…but does this matter?  I thought it only mattered when there was a chance of me ingesting it, which there wasn't at a salon.  But the hairdresser really rubbed my scalp hard and my head was burning from the color. Could I have absorbed gluten?   Finally, I am wondering if there is anyone out there who is like me…when I react to gluten now, yes, my stool is different than usual, but mostly my symptoms are tingly hands and legs, brain fog, and ALWAYS anxiety.    Thanks for responding!!!!!
