Hello from Dauphin Island! I was happy to stumble across this posting because I'm looking for a doctor to go to about celiac in the Mobile area.

Here's the deal, I recently had my feet go numb and went to a neurologist. We ruled out a lot of things but eventually I went for an MRI and found a lesion on my spine and 3 on my brain. I've also had a spinal tap and basically my lesions are consistent with Multiple Sclerosis but I've only had one attack so I can't yet be firmly diagnosed with MS.

While I've been dealing with this I've been reading a lot about MS and I keep stumbling upon some ties between celiac and MS. Some MS sites have even suggested being tested for gluten intolerance because it can exacerbate MS and any such food intolerance should be dealt with.

Meanwhile, I also have a good family friend in holistic medicine and she also immediately suggested gluten problems. So, now I'm looking for a good doctor to go to for testing.

Until recently, I didn't think I had huge health issue but now I'm starting to realize that telling my boyfriend that my stomach hurts every day isn't normal!

After all the reading I've done, I'm starting to realize it may be hard to convince a doctor to order testing for celiac and that blood testing isn't the end all of gluten problems because it takes a pretty severe case to show up in the blood.

So, any suggestions for a doctor that might have some celiac experience would be very helpful! Thanks a bunch in advance.

My husband has been sick for about 20 years...15 of which have been in Mobile. We have had several doctors try to prescribe antidepressants because they think he is not sick, I guess. It is cruel and ignorant for them to treat him this way. We need help in finding a doctor who will respect his needs. He has yet to get tested for the Celiac Sprue, but I am almost positive he has it. Who is the doctor in Birmingham who specializes in Celiac? We are in a crisis right now and need help. My husband feels like he is dying. He is only 41 years old and we have 2 children. This has been very difficult on all of us because we don't get to enjoy family meals much together and I have so much stress dealing with what he can eat and what hurts him....nearly everything hurts him. I am afraid the damage to his body is irreversible. What about brain nutrients being "sucked" out? Is that why he feels the brain fogginess? Any advice is helpful and much appreciated.

So sorry to hear of your husband being sick. I suffered for many years before finally being diagnosed with celiac. My Doctor in Montgomery was very disappointing, to say the least. He pretty much just patted me on the back and sent me on my way. Anyway, I went to Birmingham to see Dr. Shallcross apx 6 years after original diagnosis. He goes to several hospitals up there andis great. Very understanding and very aware of celiac and all the problems it can cause. As a matter of fact, I need to make a follow-up appointment. Let me know if I can be of any assistance to you. I'll be glad to talk to you and help you any way I can. Send me a PM if you want my e-mail address.

Good luck!

Hi! How I appreciate your info on the restaurants. I love Outback and Carrabbas, but get tired of them. I must seek the Sunflower Cafe. I find Fresh Market and Virginia's Healthfood pretty much of a disappointment, but not too inconvenient, since I order most of my food. I stick mostly with plain whole foods cooked at home.

I, too, would be willing to help start a group. I don't know many people, am pretty much of a happy introvert.

Hi! My husband and I feel like we have a gluten intolerance, havent been diagnosed, but feel sure that a gluten-free diet would help us out. I got on Google to find places to meet people or places to buy specialty foods from, and found this post. Glad to meet you all. Hope you're still around. :)

I have celiac disease going on 9 yrs. I moved to Mobile,Al., four years ago. I would like to know if there is a support group for gluten intolerance. I discovered this site surfing the web. It"s a lonely disease to have to deal with by oneself. People don't understand what one goes through with this disease A support is needed.

Hi, everybody. I'm 25 years old and live in Semmes, AL. You know, just outside Mobile. I just got diagnosed with Celiac Disease six weeks ago. My mother has also recently been diagnosed with it, and my brother's doctor suspects he has it as well. Between the three of us and the rest of my family, we run the gauntlet of symptoms and associated illnesses, from the usual abdominal pain, to Asperger's Syndrome and diabetes. The answer has been a light bulb and a God-send for all of us, though for a lifelong bread lover like me, adapting to a gluten free diet is...well, interesting to say the least. Actually for those of you in Mobile, there's a pretty good website, glutenfreemobile.com which gives a decent listing of different restaurants with gluten free menus and options. And Mellow Mushroom does a pretty good gluten free pizza too...not sure if they have the beer there, though...I'm not a big alcohol drinker. Actually I don't think I've had a drink since before I was old enough to do so legally!

Much love and welcome to the South!

Potterluck :)
