Please excuse my pity party but its either post on this website full of prople who get it or run screaming through the neighborhood and get locked in the looney bin.

I've had about all I can take of this gluten challenge. Admittedly I've let of go too far (eating too much gluten), partly because I'm desperate for confidence in a diagnosis (+ of -, idont care, i judg want to be sure my test results are accurate) and partly because I'm mourning the loss of my childhood comfort diet (processed junk food). My head is such a mess. Headache and brain fog so thick I cant thnk straight, exhausted despite more sleep than usual, dark circles under my eyes, horrible smells all around me (body odor and gas, despite stict hygiene measures), it hurts to lie down, it hurts to sit up. Stomach acid boiling, constant acod in the back of my throat. Everyone at work has noticed, they keep asking me if m ok, that I look sick. And I AM sick. The worst part is the Ffect on my fmily. I'm missing out on time with my son, breaks my heart when he asks me if I'm still sick..."you not sick anymore mommy?" He's not even four yet...i don't remember telling him I as sick, but he obviously gets that something is wrong with mommy. :*( My marriage is strained. Hubby is trying to understand, but he just doesn't. My libido is gone, all I want to do is sleep/lay down... He is being as supportive as he can, but its not fair to him... Plus i just realized that i most likely ahve to keep eating gluten for longer thN i was thinking, unless the GI is able to schedule for an endo right away, ive got AT LEAST 2ore weeks of hell i fromt of me. Ugggggggggh. I just want to curl into a ball and hide. My optimism and positivity are gone. I hope they come back.

Sorry for the negativity. Just had to get that all out. Maybe looking back at this post will help me stay gluten free someday....

Look at it this way, there is only two more weeks to go. You've made it this far, you can do it!

IT WILL GET BETTER AFTER (all of it iykwim)

My husband has back and even better version of me than the one he married.

It is always worth calling for cancellations. I wrote down my gluten challenge symptoms and my doctor saw me pretty sharply.

I know you want the definitive diagnosis, but many of us are ncgi, and experience massive benefits from gluten-free. Your body has made it very clear.

We are all rooting for you and will be here for your journey back to health.

Thanks everyone!! I can't tell you how grateful I am for this site...having support from people who really know this hell is invaluable. 

 

I woke up feeling more positive this morning. Heard a few songs on the radio on the way to work that were encouraging, and a reminder that I'm not alone and foresaken, there is amazing support here and He is always with me.  Reminded me I need to be thankful the symptoms aren't much worse, caz they really could be a LOT worse. I can get through this day.  I can get through the rest of this challenge.  Then I can start healing and get my life back. It will be ok. :)

    • Yes like a protein powder. I visit a local store there is so many brands and on every brand have write gluten free.that's way I confused which one is best any suggestions ! 
    • 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.
