Been here about 2 weeks and have been doing better only 2 real bad days. The babies are 4 and 1, gluten has bound to be here but they kept a hyla water filter vacuum going quite alot. When I visited my father in Arizona i did pretty well also and was gone 10 days, ok here is the question, At home in my own home which is a new trailerhouse, I get sick almost everyday, and never feel like doing a thing, not even visiting my friends,afraid i will become ill at there house, and not be able to get home.

Hello Barara, I think that celiacs is a constant journey. Febrauary 28th will be my one year anniversary that I have been gluten-free. There have been good days, and bad days. The bad days are depressing, fustrating and scary. On those days when you're feeling crummy, you just want to wrap yourself in your home, and not see or hear anyone.

I also learned that most celiacs have other allergies. Maybe because of the damage that was done to our intestines. I finally went to see an allergist/nutrtionist. My list of allergies goes on and on. Hopefully one day when I am healed, I will be able to enjoy those foods again.(except gluten, of course) I couldn"t figure out why one day I would be ok then the next I felt like I did on day 1. I wanted to pull my hair out( whats left of it :unsure: ) Maybe a ND would be able to help you too.

Hang in there, you are not alone :)

While I don't have specific answers for you, I do have a few ideas for things to look into.

Here are some items I'd check into if it were me (all of which are documented to bother people):

Gas leaks

Compact fluorescent lighting

Fumes from carpeting, upholstery or paint

Mold (including from potted house plants)

Tobacco smoke or other pollutants from neighboring homes

Radon or other naturally occurring gases

Pollen, dust, or dust mites

Ultrasonic pets repellers (can be from neighboring homes)

HTH

have you spoken to a doctor about depression? I know it sounds like a scary word, but, depression cuases physical pain and is usually linked with things like fibro...you should go to your dr and explain your symptoms instead of hiding. Also, when have you last had blood work and things tested about your lupus? because, if you are eating gluten-free you should not really be having gluten problems. go to your doctor! also, maybe journal your symptoms for a week, what happens when you eat, how you phsyically feel, how you mentally feel. You don't have to suffer by yourself! And, sometimes, as much as we all love men, they just don't get it!

Since you're living in a new home, I'd suspect something like chemicals - the chemicals in the carpet, paint, etc. A slight possibility of mold. Or maybe something weird with the electrical wiring. I've read some stuff about electrical emissions on the human body. Dimmer switches emit a lot, if you have electronics like you clock too close to your head when you're sleeping it might cause a problem.

Yeah, I agree with the others. If you are doing better outside of your home, then you should get your home tested. I know where I live, radon is a huge issue, especially in new communities. A friend of mine put in a bid on a townhouse that is no more than 2 or 3 years old, and the radon levels were unreal. Apparently, this is a common problem throughout the neighborhood, which has thousands of houses in it.

Not to say that radon specifically is your problem, but many people in that community live with that every day and have no idea. So, I would most definitely check into the list the other poster gave. Your home is supposed to be the one place you know you can feel good in. I hope you can figure it out soon!

On the other hand, I am glad you are feeling better so you can enjoy your time with your family! :lol:

    • gluten intolerance, dairy intolerance and fructose
      I'v posted on here b4... 6 yrs ago I was diagnosed as severely gluten intolerant. ( they were kinda shocked that test for celiac was negative) anyway my symptoms went away up until a few months ago. I went to the gi doctor and they said I can't have dairy or fructose.. * I found that out yesterday, I thought my tests for dairy was neg but guess it was pos. And I had no clue about the fructose*..    Anyway is it possible to have all these I tolerances? It's not making since to me.... also if you experience same thing what can I eat!! All I had today was grilled chicken and rice because it was on my lost from gi doctor... I'm a college student so I need easy quick stuff as easy as I can have it now I guess.. also is almond milk ok to have and coconut milk? I'm very confused on the fructose part.. dairy I'v been of for 6 weeks.... my doctor sent a referl over to a diatrition doctor but I want stuff to get me by until I get in. I don't even know what to look for all the research I'v done is just confusing me even more since different websites say different things..... thank you in advance.. I'm trying to gain weight I was gaining the first few yrs of being gluten free but I went back word and stuff went down hill again... 
    • Toblerone
      I don't eat chocolate often, but I have never had a gluten reaction to Toblerone. I trust it to be gluten-free.
    • So I've been glutened....
      I am so sorry for how your feeling.  I can sympathize; over time I notice I couldn't have any type of gluten free products.  I read that since you don't have villi in your small intestines you have no defenses, meaning even the tiniest bit of exposure causes a flare up.  I even have to be careful when I purchase products by reading the labels to ensure it says manufactured by a nut, soy, milk and wheat free facility.  Be very careful, unfortunately
    • Symptoms despite strict gluten-free -- new here
      I have been reading a lot about leak gut syndrome which is new to the medical community in the sense that they don't know how to manage it.  If (you are female) make sure to do a yearly pap and uterine check to ensure there is no issues there.  If you are not a female then definitely confirm with an endoscopy if your small intestines are still damaged.  I am looking into doing the leaky gut diet to see if it will help, the book I am reading is "Eat Dirt" by Dr Josh Axe.  Especially since I notice anytime I am exposed to gluten by accident my symptoms are worse each and every time.  I know get severe back and rib cage pain, with bloating, gurgling and diarrhea with severe nausea.  I am willing to try anything and I am now reading this book and applying the diet to see if I can heal my intestinal lining.
    • Help
      Ok so I had my colonoscopy & endoscopy last Thursday. Don't get results until July 13th as GI is on vacation. I've had bad pain in my lower left abdomen that wraps around to my lower back as well for the past 4 days..even hurts to touch lightly. Went back to the ER & they did an ultrasound & CT scan. The Doctor said that I have "prominent" lymph nodes in the area that is painful as well as thickening & inflammation of my Sigmond colon? Um ok what is that all about? Kind of freaking out over the whole swollen lymph nodes thing. Has anyone ever dealt with this before? 😒

      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.
      https://youtu.be/IU6jVEwpjnE Thank You,
