Three weeks of gluten. I'm a hot mess. Mostly neuro symptoms. brain fog is brutal. Achy body, headache, fatigue. My attention span is worse than a 18 mo old. Can't stay awake to save my life. Crazy sounds coming from my mid section and I have these weird bumps behind my ears and on my face. I look 6 mo pregnant. gahhhhhhh. Need to hold on, only 7 more days before i see the GI. I can do this. I can do this!

Tell me I can do this. :)

Ooooh, you're close to that finish line!  Hang in there. Mybe try eating your gluten in the evening so it doesn't wreck your day... just your night. :huh:  In the final stretch, it's time to enjoy those last "glutenous" treats. A Blizzard with oreos, beer, cinnamon buns, and picking any food off a menu without worrying... Choose foods that almost make the pain worth it.

 

You can do it.  :)

You can do it, nearly there.

At least there is no question in your mind whether gluten is a problem :) :(

I might duck just in case that wasn't helpful....

- Symptoms from 2001, maybe before. Across 20+ years, these have included, vomiting, D, migraines, headaches, recurrent miscarriage, inflammation problems (failure to heal from injuries) brain fog, anxiety and more!
- Elimination diet using Atkins, 2003 – excluded wheat, caffeine, quorn. 2005, excluded sesame, alcohol
- Started diagnosis route April 2012, blood tests, endoscopy – said negative, gluten challenge, clearly something very wrong, had to stop after 3 weeks.
- Gluten Free, August 2012, Corn Free, September 2012. Removed most processed gluten free foods.
- Genetic testing, December 2012 – negative – Diagnosis – Non Celiac Gluten Intolerance (NCGI)
- Elimination diet, January 2013 – all of the above plus dairy, legumes, all grains, sugar, additives, white potatoes, soy. Reintroducing sloooowly now. Health improving.

Well, I think it's clear to US  you are gluten intolerant (if not a full blown celiac) and I hope your doctor is wise enough to see it too.

No matter what the tests say, your body screams a primal scream of  "GLUTEN BAD!!!" :angry:

 

Hang in there, hon. I still have my pom poms:

You can do it! You can't give up now, or the last three weeks of feeling like crap would have been pointless.
