hi i'm becca. i'm 14 and have had celiac for over a year now. pm me if you want my email, or just to talk. Right now I'm on a special diet for another disease i have, so all i can eat is formula (like the kind babies have-which i get through an ng tube cuz it tastes nasty :blink: ), cantelope, and potatoes. I was gluten free for a year before this diet and felt much better.

It doesn't always stink, but at times it seems that way. It's a way of life, that eventually you WILL get used to. If you have a craving for something that you can't have then eat something even better that you can have, even if it's not healthy it's healthier than having gluten. I don't really know what it's like to go from having gluten filled stuff to none at all but I do have a curiosity/ a want to try what everyone else is having. In kindergarten I took a goldfish cracker from someone ate it and was vomiting for ten days..this has happened many times unfortunately. Hope this helps!!!

Gluten free since I was 11 months old

Okay well just wondering if this happened/happens to anyone else:

My parents had a middle with my teachers because they need to be aware that I have celiac. Thats FINE, BuT they are annoying about it, like I don't know what I can and can't have or I want to try something I know I can't have(well yah there are temptations but I can get over it!!!)...anyone else feel like you just want to be treated the same and have them still realize the situation..my parents don't have celiac and they don't understand. It's so frusterating!

I hate going to resuraunts with my mom.

First thing she does when the server comes is jumps on them with "No Gluten and this and that"

Its annoying and embarrassing.

Especially because I'm not 5. I can tell the server my needs and ask questions.

She doesn't have Celiac either.

I'm the only one in my immediate family...

Hi, another celiac here new to the forums :P

I was diagnosed at 14 months of age, and now I'm 16 and well.

@Alli. My parents also informed my old school I was celiac, mainly because I entered when I was 10 years, and still not completely aware of what I was allergic of. But after that one time, my parents had no more contact with the school regarding being celiac.

When I used to go to camps or such, my mum would always enter and explain things. It could be a bit irritating at times, but I just accepted it.

The main issue here is trust. If you can show your parents that you can uphold your diet they will start trusting you. For these last two years, any camp / dinner I went to, I ordered for myself because now they know that I know my condition better than they do (since I'm the only celiac in my family. Well my father is slightly intolerant but he still takes gluten).

Also, as for completely emotional. Yes, I do. It's called being a teenager. :P Everyone passes through such days at our age. We just have something to blame it on (even though it might not be directly influential.)

@CranberryThief. Give them a few months to understand that you can handle it on yourself. They'll start backing off slowly themselves. :)

Also, Aim / MSN / Y!IM should be in my profile. Anyone feel free to hit me up. I tend to suffer from boredom a bit :D

Yea, i know what you mean, i was glutened in school(accidently) and i tried telling the receptionist and she just kept asking questions, then told me i couldnt possibly be having a reaction that quickly (i dont think shes ever seen a reaction of any type). She told me to go to lesson and see the teacher if i still felt ill. which i did, lucky for me my welsh teacher's father has coeliac and after telling me to read the label more carefully she let me go home. (In my defence the label had sutible for coeliacs on it). Most of my teachers have actually been ok, even though last year i always seemed to be missing physics to have bloods done. When i explained why to the same teacher earlier this year, i found that she already knew. (My form tutor had told her the night before, we were on a camping trip). But yea, sometimes i wish the teachers didnt know because that way they wouldnt act like i cant speak for myself sometimes.

Hi all. I am 23 ( a little older than most of you, however I don't feel always comfortable with the "adult" forums).

I was diagnosed with Celiac and Casein sensitivity since April 2008.

I would have to agree about going out to eat or being in public with family members, especially my mom and my soon to be mother in law. I love my mom to death....but she feels the need to announce to everyone around us that I am on a gluten-free diet! Personally, I would like not to have everyone else know at all times. It's none of their business, unless I bring it up, or they ask me. I don't have a problem talking about it....I just am always annoyed by the fact that other people decide to announce it for me. Does anyone else have that problem?

My soon to be mother in law has the tendency of buying lots of gluten free products for me (which is great, I don't have to buy them) however, most of the items are DISGUSTING! But, I am too shy (intimidated by her) to say otherwise, so I usually choke it down and smile :) Hopefully, I will get the courage to say something...sometime.

I know since I am older than some, I would love to talk about anything. Contact me anytime.

-Danielle

    • Thank you everyone! Good to know I am not alone with this. I am asking for a referral to a new cardio. Hopefully it will all go away the longer I am gluten-free. It started up in February/March after a gluten challenge and mostly vanished until July when I had a lot of shortness of breath. It absolutely was CRAZY just a few days after the glutening. I was gasping for breath and the beats were all over the place just walking through a parking garage and I was only mildy anemic at the time.   But it seems to "quiver" and do funny things for a bit still. I sort of theorized maybe it was inflammation in the heart because after this last glutening, my head felt like it was in a vice and my eyes would sting or get stabbing pain hurt (that is finally going away thankfully...knock on wood).  The head/eye pressure I learned also happens to my sibling who has celiac and his naturopath told him that sometimes the brain gets inflamed. Hopefully I can meet the new cardio soon and feel confident that he is taking me seriously. It is sort of difficult to feel confident in the opinion of a doctor that your ticker is ok when they are not really listening and end up making you cry. LOL. A friend of mine in the mental health field recently listened to my story of doc after doc and test after test and said that it was akin to the folk story of blind men describing an elephant. A group of blind men all feel one part of an elephant (tusk, tail, ear, tail) and then compare notes only to find they all disagree.  In some  versions they argue intensely. In other versions they have to collaborate and listen to each other in order to "describe" an elephant.    
    • Good afternoon! I am new to this board and fairly new to researching Celiac Disease, although I had a general idea what it was. My health has become a huge mystery to me, and it's one that I am desperate to solve. The biggest issue right now is horrible, life affecting fatigue. I have been dealing with it for several years now- as many as 5 to 6. It has gotten progressively worse, and nothing at all helps. Sleep apnea has been ruled out. Intestinal issues are something I have dealt with for almost two decades. I'm 45, but I've already had two colonoscopies as well as two endoscopies. My first endoscopy was as a child for persistent, severe stomach pain. My last colonoscopy and endoscopy was two years ago. The only thing that has come from those is an Irritable Bowel type condition and GERD, which is pretty bad. My bowel movements have always been crazy. They can be very normal and healthy to completely crazy. I've had periods of persistent diarrhea to occasional constipation, which is a fairly new thing within the last year. Last week, I went from having diarrhea that morning to hard, round balls of stool by that evening. My most common stools here lately, though, are not quite diarrhea, but more fluffy, large piles. Gas is an ongoing, daily issue for me. I have copious amounts of gas every day no matter what I eat or drink. Most of the gas in non-odorous but it can be very loud. I am currently on a total of 60 mg of Ritalin per day just to function. I often add energy pills, purchased from places such as GNC, because the Ritalin isn't working. Yesterday, I took both doses of Ritalin and two energy pills, and I passed out on the couch after work. I work from 7:30am to 3:30pm, and my work day is nothing too crazy. I try to keep very consistent sleep hours and could easily sleep to 1:00pm or longer if I don't have to get up for something. I sometimes have short periods of energy in the mornings, but that is usually over by noon. The quality of my life is greatly affected. I don't want to go anywhere or do anything because I am way too tired. I'm trying to keep up with my exercising, but that is also a struggle.  I have a history of clinical depression for practically all my adulthood, but it has been very well managed for the last four years. The fatigue is currently causing a great deal of depression, but it is very different from the clinical depression that I use to deal with. When I don't feel sleepy and tired, I don't feel depressed. When the fatigue sets in, I feel very irritable and sad. I realize that the stimulants can cause irritability, but I don't feel irritable or sad when I'm not feeling fatigued.  I've only recently began to explore that the fatigue and the intestinal issues could be related. I have always accepted that I have a sensitive, cooky digestive track. The increasing, unrelenting fatigue is what has lead me to exploring the possibility that everything could be related. I did have blood work last November. My doctor did not test for anything Celiac Disease specific, but she did do a Vitamin D, ferritin level and overall metabolic panel. All of that is normal. My thyroid level is also normal, and I do take thyroid hormone because I had half of my thyroid removed 11 years ago due to what turned out to be a benign thyroid tumor.  I just saw my doctor two weeks ago, and she increased the dosage of my Ritalin. That has not helped at all. She has never mentioned Celiac Disease to me before. I made an appointment for this Friday afternoon to talk about it, but I keep wondering if I'm even heading in a direction that makes sense. I decided to post here for some guidance. I'm sorry this has been so long. I'm not really into cutting something totally out of my diet just to see what happens. I also feel like that if I have something that is poisoning my system, I need a real clinical diagnosis of that. I feel like maybe I'm grasping at straws now and imagining a correlation that isn't there. I am not looking for a quick fix, but right now I have no idea what needs to be fixed. I am open to any information and/or suggestions. Thanks so much!   Jennifer

    • I too have heart palps, flutters, skips whatever you want to call them. Ecg shows nothing. I was told by my doctor it is due to my low iron which is due to celiac. They pretty much went away after being gluten-free. But occasionally do come back. I've actually been having them for the past 3 days. But I was glutened with really severe reaction about a week ago so not sure if its due to that. Or if iron is low right now. I am on supplements but it still goes up and down. I hear you about doctors. It seems if you don't do research yourself or ask questions they don't say or do or test for anything. 
    • For a number of years pre diagnosis I had irregular heartbeats - anything from a fluttering type thing to seemingly skipping one or more beats to rapid beats to something like a short drum riff. I had multiple ECG's which didn't find anything odd. It never did it when I was at the doctors or getting the ECG's. Sometimes it seemed to pound very hard & rapid, at these times I discovered if I just laid down flat on my back, it would restore normal rhythm almost instantly. These things happened at random whether I was at rest, sitting, standing, running or working hard. It was always short lived -- lasting only 1 to several seconds, perhaps the longest was close to a minute. I too have little faith in docs as I've had my share of being blown off, to misdiagnoses. The whole heart thing quit after I had been gluten-free for a while but if I get glutened, it returns.
