I've been suffering from constant pain, bloating, feet swelling, heartburn, constipation/diarrea, high blood sugar, high triglycerides, anemia, headaches, dizzyness, black outs, vomiting, constant nausea, swollen tongue, itchy rashes and hives, liver and spleen pain and swelling. I've had so many tests done where they said nothing was wrong with me ~ and all docs have tried to put me on antidepressants and a weight loss plan. All weight loss plans have failed ~ I even gain when I'm not really eating at all.
I was JUST diagnosed last week with Celiacs with a "leaky gut" (?) ... anyway I'm 40 and while I'm sad I can't have cake and cookies anymore... I'm actually thrilled to know what is actually going on! From my research, all these symptoms could disappear if I avoid gluten ~ wow!! It seems so easy. Then I start reading labels, and this diet might be tougher than I thought. BUT, I'm going to do it because I'm so curious what feeling good feels like
I'm also happy to find this thread and others who are like me ~ I'm loving reading all this information and support!!
