  1. Hi guys, I am still waiting for the results of my blood test (hopefully tomorrow) so I am still eating as per always. I couldn't agree with you more about the brain fog. That and the feeling of total fatigue (ALL THE TIME) have been crippling for me for more than 15 years and I was getting sick of seeing my doctor becasue I was beginning to feel like I was the problem..... Anyway my wife heard a story on the radio about celiacs and couldn't believe what she was hearing as the lady was discussing all the same symptons that I have been living with all these years. WELL, hopefully I am about to discover that I am a celiac and that some I will be on the mend. Once I change my diet to eliminate gluton, can you give me an idea on time frames for feeling better? Thanks so much for listening. Ta from the land down under.....(Australia)

  3. Thanks so much for your response. I was kind of hoping that would be the case, however as I am still waiting the results of my blood test I am a while of finding out all the benefits of eleminating wheat etc etc. Cheers and thanks again.
  4. Any help would be appreciated! thanks
  5. Is there any connection with cold sores and celiac disease? Thanks
  6. Hi Matthew. I have also just joined, and live in Melbourne. Where your sysmptoms similar to this? I have been "struggling" with an illness (??) for as long as I can remember. I am now 35, married with beautiful 2 year old twins. For more than 20 years I have seeing various Doctor with the following symptoms: Cronic tiredness Night terrors loose bowel movements after most meals (although I have only just tomld my current Doctor this due to be not thinking it was relevant (IDIOT!!) It is also interesting to note that I matured later than most of my peers (I was about 18 when I had my main growing spurt). I have owned and operated my own business for the past 6 years and more often than not I have been struggling with motivation, tiredness, lack of energy, concentration, anxiety. I often, due to the tiredness feel like I am wasting away my life. This has an enormous effect on me both from a business point of view and a personal satisfaction point of view. My confidence is at an all time low. Some of the attempted solutions offered by Doctors have been: ADHD and prescribed ritilin10 Depression and prescribed Zoloft Haemochromotosis (did not have the gene!) Neither of these had any positive effect on me at all. Two days ago, my wife heard an interview on the radio about the effects and symptoms of Celiac desease and suggested that I do some research. EVERY THING I have read makes perfect sense to me. My Doctor, who I have been seeing for over 2 years order me a blood test today, which I did. I am expecting to have these results early next week. I would like to know if any of my symptoms ring true with any one else? In a bizarre sort of way I am hoping that the blood test and biopsy are both positive so I can get on with actually working out a way to feel better. If this happens, what can expect to occur and in what time frame? thanks
  7. many thanks. I will definately keep you posted. How much better do you feel now compared with pre gluton free stage of your life? Cheers
