I wanted to share that there is light at the end of the tunnel for anyone still suffering. hang in there. I had different symptoms ranging from nausea, extreme heartburn and horrible dizziness with brain fog.

 

now, gluten, dairy and soy free 6 months later, I am living my life without being afraid to make plans for fear of being too sick to go anywhere.

 

I also noticed another thing I had cleared up, and didn't ever associate this with my issues, my eyes are a lot clearer. there had been days when after watching tv for a while, or being at the computer for a while, my eyes got all out of focus and I couldn't drive. I just noticed that doesn't happen anymore, so happy I got to the bottom of all this.

 

and thanks to everyone here, and all the great info I never would have known if it weren't for this forum :)

It's inspiring to hear that! I'm still a newbie just seven weeks or so into this.

that is wonderful :)  i *LOVE* posts like this!!  you may also be surprised, as time goes by and you continue to be strict with your diet, that other symptoms (i had some i didn't even know i had until they went away) will just disappear.  recently, i was able to drive home at night in the rain <something i thought i would never do again - just thought my eyesight was aging lolz...  a "symptom" that i didn't think had anything to do with gluten.  i was overjoyed - it's terrifying to watch the sun go down in a panic because you have to drive home!  

 

thanks so much for posting your success!!  :D

Hi julissa,

 

I, too, was having difficulty with my eyes refocussing after using a computer, reading a book, etc, for years. I have been off gluten for a week, and my eyes now refocus immediately. I had blood drawn today for a test.

 

Thank you for posting good news; it is encouraging.
