Hope no one minds the constant questions. But do thes sound like symptoms too?

Ringing in head/ears

Feeling faint even when resting

Burning itching feet

Disturbed sleep/ disturbing dreams

Strange blurry vision, almost like being underwater.

Trembling in limbs and some times whole body shaking

Typing words wrong way round

Feeling exhausted by conversation

Dry mouth/ sticky nasty taste in mouth

Thank you

Jo

Hi Jo

 

Well, they sound like gluten-related symptoms to me. (I had almost all of those, too) but they could also be

 

caused by something else, so it is difficult to say for sure.

 

Here is a list of possible celiac- related symptoms and conditions.

I know you are awaiting your test results, so you may wish to read a little bit while waiting.

Hang in there!

Hi IrishHeart

I know they are also symptoms of b12 def which I have, but I am clutching at straws here ☺. I am also being tested for vit D def and I don't know what else as the nurse said the doctor had asked for several tests. She said he is very thorough so I am hopeful of some answers this time. Sounds crazy but In a way hope it is Celiac, then at least I will know something.

Not crazy at all! I was THRILLED to learn it was celiac after years of living in hell. It was something treatable

and I was not "making things up" and I got to do the "I told ya so" dance! :D .

 

Believe me, many of us "get that part".

Yep... the "I told you so dance". Did you notice Irishheart even has it in her signature?  LOL

The "I told you so dance" is nice -- validation is huge and sadly many of us had to fight far too much to obtain it.  This above all else is why I hang around celiac.com -- when I stumbled in four years ago -- others that were already dancing helped me.

 

Welcome Jo!

 

I hadn't seen your other questions...but keep reading and keep asking questions.  Good Luck with your results :)

Thankyou IrishHeart, Lisa and Nicole. This is a lovely forum and I have found some welcome comfort here. And even if I am not Celiac I hope I can still keep visiting. Yes I had noticed that happy little dancer!

hey guys, Jo is in the midst of a gluten challenge, so we are cheering her on!

 

http://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/101386-anyone-feels-worse-in-the-morning/?hl=%2Bdozey#entry865664

 

and yes, I am dancing because at one point, I could not even walk without assistance. Lisa was in the same boat, Jo and she and I

are both so much better!

 

..........so do not despair. Healing happens!

Thanks Irish Heart. I can't walk very far which of course isn't helping the agoraphobia. My husband insisted on getting a wheelchair and although it just doesn't feel right being in it, it does mean I can get a bit further without worrying about ending up on the floor. So, when I feel well enough I try to go a bit further each outing. If I do too much I pay for it the next day, so I am trying to pace it.

I had my blood test yesterday but typical for me can't get to see my new doc until next Friday. I am dreading him saying I need an endoscopy because there is no way at the moment. I nearly passed out at the surgery and that's only two miles away. The hospital is 23 miles. An epic journey for an agoraphobic!

But for you to get to the bottom of this and stop the madness and get your life back, you may well have to do this, Jo.

 

I am not a drug pusher, but maybe you can ask the primary care doc for a small dose of xanax to calm you enough to get you to doctor visits. IMHO

I know this sounds as though I am being negative about everything but I can't take drugs. Even ordinary painkillers have an effect on me. I was given Diazepam some years ago and it just knocked me out for a few hours, then I felt worse when I woke up. So now I am afraid of taking drugs of any kind.

I have similar issues with drugs, which is why I put up with chronic pain rather than take the stuff they give me,

so no need to explain. The one that did not make me yucky for days was when I took just  a teensy bit of xanax

before a dental surgery that was going to last over an hour. Without it, I may have balked at doing it and it had to be done..

 

I am just suggesting it as a therapeutic measure to get you out of the house.

Certainly, you should always do what's best for you.

I appreciate that. Maybe it's going back to the car crash we had in 2004, although I recovered from that and have driven myself about since, even did a stint as a taxi driver. Lately I just have difficulty going anywhere in the vehicle. I don't think we wil crash or anything but maybe it's just general anxiety.

    • Do you mean something like a protein powder you could mix up?  A lot of them in the US seem to be gluten free.  Maybe just go to your local store and read all the labels?
    • Yeah I ended up allergic to corn, olives, sesame, whey, and peanuts and intolerant to dairy, soy, yeast, enzyme issues with breaking down meats, and egg yolks, along with extreme bloat with any kind of carbs/sugars in moderate amounts. And very adverse reactions to certain artificial sweeteners. So your not alone in all the other issues cropping up, it happens as our bodies adjust.  I eat a bunch of stir frys with veggies, egg whites, plenty of  avocados, and toasted and raw forms of almonds, coconut, cashews, walnuts, hemp seeds, pumpkin seeds, flax seeds, sancha inchi seeds, chia seeds, and sunflower seeds in all forms including making them into butters, spreads, and incorporating them into sauces.   Most meals are forms of soups, omelettes, and stir frys. I do the seeds and nuts on rotation same with my veggies and snack on fruits in small amounts along with some homemade baked goods I make for markets. I do suggest a rotation of foods, my dietician said I need to rotate my foods to prevent more issues, making sure I am off one one for at least 7-14 days at a time completely. I find changing up the spices and rotating my cuisine base works well. I also make puddings, and protein shakes along with nut/seed milks, and different bases and extract flavorings to get my random cravings Taken care of. Guess take what you can from this and and see how it can help you,    As to the tinging, I ended up with both B vitamin and magnesium deficiency issues, the magnesium one caused a fire like tingling in my arms, legs and back, along with muscle pain. Ended up on a doctors best powder form of it so I can dose it out right, and found epsom salt bathes helped.  
    • Hi, I've gained so much knowledge on this forum over the past few months, which I am so thankful for. I can see how much hell people are going through with this disease and it's so lovely to see how much support and advice people give to others on here. I'd like a little bit of reassurance and advice myself from anyone that can help. I've been gluten free for six months. Two weeks after going gluten free I realised I also had a problem with corn so cut out processed food. Over the following weeks and months I continually had problems with food; fruit, dairy, a lot of vegetables, nuts, soya....it's basically dwindled down to just eating potatoes (not white potatoes), cucumber, lettuce, small amounts of red onion, spring onion, sprouts and beetroot. There may be more things I could be okay with but to be honest I'm too scared to try.  Is this all normal? Am I an extreme case? I've been taking some digestive enzymes and probiotics for about six weeks, my acid reflux has dramatically decreased but I always have a lot of loud noises going on in my guts, I'm guessing this is the probiotics working.  I've lost nearly 3st in weight since this started - which I'm not complaining about as I was overweight due to thyroid problems. I've had loads of blood tests done recently, all organs are working 'great' according to my doctor, the only thing they've picked up on is ketones, I seem to be having a glucose problem, which might explain my exhaustion and weight loss. I also have permanent numbness and sometimes tingling in one of my legs and sometimes hands and one shoulder, I thought it could have vitamin B12 deficiency but that's okay according to blood tests. I would be greatful for any replies. Thanks for reading.
    • Hi everyone, I am doing job in restaurant at evening 5 to 12 during working hours no time to do a dinner. I'm thinking to make a shake but don't know the gluten free vitamin or supplement brand which one is good for me and easily available in Berlin Germany to make me fit cause last one week i feel weak. I'm 28 year old. Sincerely
    • Hey there just wanted to warn anyone that has other allergies- these crackers may not be a good choice! I'm mildly sensitive to MSG- I only react if there's a giant amount like in Chinese food or Ramen noodles, etc.  I literally have a to eat TONS of a the offending food before reacting.  Anyway, I was excited to try these Trader Joes pumpkin crackers, kept hearing about them on the radio .... and they're gluten free!  (I have Hashi's).  I ate about 3/4 of the box last night. Woke up this morning with a red itchy face and nasal congestion, headache, anxiety. Hallmark symptoms for me of high MSG intake. (It does say yeast extract on the side but it's pretty far down the list). So if you're sensitive.... stay away! Apparently these particular crackers are loaded with it.
