Since celiac3270's "firmly gluten-free" thread is getting longgggggg I wanted to bump it to a new page and give everyone a chance to leave our favorite celiac a good thought for a better diagnosis and "going forwad" days after the 'scope coming up. (I knew he would not presume to do this himself :) Knowledge is power, let's hope you get some on the 13th...

I forgot it was coming up so soon. Good luck! (I admit to being confused at first, because I'm used to 'endo' being used to mean endometriosis, a gyn condition, and ... well, was just very confused. ;-) )

celiac3270,

You are in my prayers. Monday just can't come soon enough! Looking forward to hearing what comes from your endoscopy. I know that you need answers and I hope that you get them. But most of all I hope that you are able to feel better soon. You are a great inspiration to so many of us here and I'm sure we all agree that it will be great for you to be pain free and symptom free. Look at all that you have accomplished while suffering. Imagine what you will be able to do when you are completely healthy! :D

Let us know how it goes. You too Stacie! Good luck to you on the 14th!

God bless,

Mariann

Thanks again, everyone :) .....I am even more happy that I'm going to get this done Monday, now. Like Mariann said, "Monday just can't come soon enough". In the past I got abdominal pains and vomiting...once every 3-7 days......now, for the past seven days, I have had abdominal pains -- not much vomiting -- a little last night, but I'm not used to seven days in a row feeling sick....since it's getting worse, I'm really glad that I'll get this checked out. This is a big year for me--there's a mandatory shakespeare play thing, which requires a lot of time and is a really big and stressful process..........even more, I have to apply for highschool (tedious forms to fill out, many essays to write, SSATs, other exams that different schools want, and most importantly, interviews and tours that I can't be sick for :( .......etc.).........so I really want to get this straightened out....at least if I find out what's wrong with me, I can maybe get some sort of medication to ease the symptoms or something..........but thank you all sincerely for your thoughts and well-wishes for not only the endoscopy, but answers and elimination of symptoms :D . School starts tomorrow for me and will drastically slow down my postings, but I will make sure I tell you what happens with the scope and results...

Know we are with you in spirit. I will keep your health and education in my prayers. Try not to stress, easier said than done, about school issues - I wonder if the stress is flaring things up. I hope you get some answers.

The first day of school was great -- and the second, today...........I'm getting back in my study-nerd-workaholic mode without any trouble..lol :D ...anyway, in my school of about 320, there were three celiacs. One kid who is three years younger than I am (gluten-free over a year), a kid who was in the eighth grade last year and is now at some secondary school, and then, obviously, there's myself. The teacher that that celiac had last year is now my teacher, so he slightly understands the limitations of celiac disease.........

Oh, the reason I posted. I found out that the biopsy is at 11:30. I need to be at the hospital by 9:30 and no food after midnight before the endo....then clear liquids including water and apple juice are allowed until 7:30. So, that's the time slot now. I got assignments from my teachers for Monday cause I don't want to have to make up a lot of work or call people and do work after the endo. I want to get all my stuff done this weekend so that Monday I can just lie around and relax and post..... :D when I finish. I'll post when I get home. Thanks again for your support.

Wow, celiac3270, that's great that they know what you're dealing with! (Well, I hope - we've heard stories of celiacs who... aren't well enough informed for their own good on this board. ;-) )

      I am glad you are feeling so much better!  Your posting will encourage others.  Thank you!
    • Last posted 2013 - Improving health
      When I first started this journey, roughly 11 yrs ago with symptoms, I had no clue. Eventually, having no luck with doctors (hypochondriac or psychosomatic), I googled my symptoms over and over looking for something... ANYTHING... that would give me a clue. Among other issues, my insides would not move, I was turning gray, felt like death, and had a persistent cough. I can't remember who but someone had posted on the forum and I found some of my symptoms. Eureka, I immediately began a gluten-free diet to see if it made any difference. Of course that was a journey, not realizing what products contained gluten. Long story shorter – first I went gluten-free, symptoms began to reappear, then it was soy (first organic was okay, then not), symptoms reappeared, took out corn, symptoms reappeared, then it was all grains. So the last couple of years I have been grain-free plus no sulphates. Actually, truth be told, my Celiac pharmacist gave me the recipe for health. I asked her if she liked a certain product. She answered, “I don't know, I have never tried it.” I asked her what she did use. She replied, “Nothing out of a box, a bag, or a bottle.” And that has pretty much been my life for the last couple of years. There is the odd product I try but it always has an after effect and I have to way the consequences against the enjoyment of it. I am one of those who react to 1 crumb in the butter, flour dust in the air, sulphates in anything, sometimes things that don't even seem like they would be a problem, like avocados and blueberries when I am contaminated. January 2016 I began this recitation. It is now May 5th, 2016 - Here I am 4 months later and I feel like screaming to anyone who will listen, “Things are improving!! My gut is healing!!” So what happened?? Someone suggested digestive enzymes. My insides were so compromised that I couldn't eat much besides fruit, veggies, and meat; all plain, all without being touched by people other than me. I could barely stand salt at times when I was compromised. Haven't been to a restaurant in years since I am not in a city that would have one to cater or understand this much of a problem. I started digestive enzymes but I read the label wrong and started with 5 first thing in the morning. Whatever... I began to notice improvements in what I could eat. Not anything different but just that I could eat without feeling ill or having my gut shut down. I stayed on those for a month and a half.. then I picked up a parasite from someone living in a very unclean apartment and visiting there and helping to clean. Well, that was a huge battle. I had to eat to discourage parasites. But in the process my insides began to heal dramatically. I was eating blackberries, drinking garlic keefir (which I couldn't have done 5 mths ago and gave me the first clue my insides had improved substantially), drinking oil of oregano or peppermint oil drops in a glasses of water, eating cabbage and green roughage. Drinking water with apple cider vinegar in it and Aloe Vera juice. After a couple of weeks my insides were a whole different story. I had a feeling of wellness that I hadn't had for years! I FELT like trying to eat something different. So I decided to try Gluten-free Rice Chex. Haven't had them in years.... and I am so happy! I can eat them!! (Not to say they are healthy, cause they are processed crap) but I didn't get sick and that was the amazing part. So now I am beginning to try a few things that would have set me back previously, I have made my own crème brulee because I have always been able to eat eggs. But the sugar was causing problems, but now it's okay. The issue I have now is that I want to try things too fast so I am having to exercise restraint. So here is it – parasites are very common, everyone has them however whether they cause problems depends on your immune system. Does it not makes sense that they would cause leaky gut? An over abundance in the gut would destroy gut tissue and take nutrients from a person and possibly put holes in the gut leading to food reactions? Digestive enzymes help to destroy the protective coating around parasites. Foods that discourage them or kill them are blackberries, garlic, cabbage, oil of oregano, peppermint oil, aloe vera juice, Braggs apple cider vinegar and more (google to find). I found medication didn't do anything so I turned to all the other. So this is how it is today. I don't suggest it is the answer to anyone else's problems but when I found this site, hidden in the posts was the beginning of the answers for me.  I may still be gluten, soy, corn intolerant but I am feeling so good now and I just thought I would tell someone.  I just wanted to share. Thanks for reading.
    • Endoscopy in 9 days after being low-gluten for a year. What to eat?
      Not to mention my hips and knees are killing me and I have really bad calf pains and horrible bloating after just 3 days of glutening. I don't think I could live like this for a whole week.
    • Endoscopy in 9 days after being low-gluten for a year. What to eat?
      I saw my gi today and he said to not worry about eating gluten. I have abdominal pain in the small intestine area and referred pain in my back, indicating pretty bad damage. So I'll just go without the gluten and do the genetic testing if needed.
    • Vagus Nerve Attack
      Hello All: I came across this series of posts from as Google search on "Wheat Vagus Nerve". I find all of your replies very interesting and would like to add mine for those searching for information but with differing symptoms. I have struggled with the vagus nerve impact to breathing as Maria mentioned in the original post, but only an impact to breathing and nothing else.  But my symptoms were brought on not only by wheat, but also by other ingredients such as dark chocolate, probiotics, caprylic acid, mustard, fluoride in toothpaste/mouthwash just to name a few.  I found when I sat down my breathing would return to normal, but as soon I got up, the impact would return. The impact to breathing would come 4-6 hours after ingestion and last for about the same amount of time.  At times I could not even take ten steps without having to stop, not being able to breath even moderately.  The symptoms now are decreasing in severity but not in duration. My doctor checked my blood for celiac and results were negative. A number of chest x-rays to rule out COPD.  I am waiting on an appoint with an allergy specialist in a few weeks to see what they have to say.  Needless to say, it is difficult to maintain a healthy weight. Thanks for your posts, and I hope my contribution is of benefit to others also.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
