Okay, so it's been a while since I've been on here...mostly because I have been feeling good until the past couple months...So, here is my story, and I'm hoping someone can help...I was diagnosed via blood work then biopsy in February 2013. I've been gluten free since biopsy...with the exception of accidental glistenings and CC. After approximately 2 months on the diet I began feeling AMAZING! I didn't know what to do with all the new energy! Then, I think I began getting a little too "comfortable". I began eating lots of junk really...chips (that were not listed as gluten-free even though no obvious ingredients indicated gluten), chocolate, candy...JUNK! I was also eating a ton of frozen steamer vegetables, which I later found out that that brand states "they can not guarantee that food was not cooked on same line as wheat products". I eat a LOT of baked potatoes (maybe I have a problem with those??) Anyway...I now have proclaimed to not eat ANYTHING unless it is says gluten-free on ingredients. But I still feel so bad. My energy level is virtually non-existent. And it's worse late afternoon/night but not sure why? My joints just ache so bad and the fog/depression set in at night too...Stomach problems aren't my main issue right now. I just need some strength and for my muscles and joints to feel better. I would love to hear anyone's story and to hear suggestions?? Like vitamins you take and love, etc?? I might add I have a 3 year old, 2 year old and 1 year old...I need a "pick me up".

When was the last time you were tested for deficiencies? What does your result panel look like? 

 

I would cut out that junk. At least for a few more months and then slowly introduce it as you know you can tolerate it. I know it sucks and you probably want to get back to a normal life as soon as possible but it's hard to say what could be causing you problems in all that junk. If you feel better off of it then it should probably go for now. I take a strong multi-vitamin with iron (pre-natal) but I wouldn't go taking anything unless you have a valid reason. Do you have a doc you see regularly? He can check your levels and tell you what you need or what you're missing. 

 

I hope you feel better and I know CC and glutenings suck. 

Take care, my friend.

Just  get  back on  tract, clean  wholesome  gluten-free  foods. And  stick to it....its okay  to  have  a few  snacks &  sweets  now &  then  as  a  treat  but it  isn't  good , only for  weight  gain  to  eat  these  type  of  foods  gluten free or  not...

Think  WILLPOWER.......

feel better  soon....

Hey I haven't been tested for deficiencies in approx 2 months, but I was still a little vitamin D deficient at that time...it's just so hard to pinpoint everything, which is so frustrating...and non-Celiacs just don't understand...I'm dealing with that too. I do have a doc I'm seeing...but I am his first celiac patient. Awesome! NE Mississippi is quite behind...
