Is this all in MY head??
Posted 01 June 2010 - 06:57 PM
These are my test results:
Reference range: 81 to 463
Gliadin Ab IgA
I'm concerned because, it's been almost a week and I'm getting more and more of a burning sensation in my upper stomach and now it feels like it's in my sinuses. Taking lotsa papaya enzyme but this just won't go away...wondering if I should try to get in sooner to doc (I know it's only 2 days from now, but I'm worried).
Is this all in MY head?? Will I be put on medication? Will this get better?

That couldn't be further from being "all in your head" it sounds more like it's all over your body! The cleansing process can be very confusing and it takes most people multiple tries to finally get totally gluten free at home.
In the meantime, my special drink for gastric issues concerns lots of bacteria. I personally prefer coconut kefir (some of the most delicious stuff in the world) but you could just take some probiotics (or mix the two!). Probiotics have been shown to aid in the recovery of celiac disease, while damaging your intestines with gluten you end up severely disturbing the natural colonies of bacteria that keep your guts running properly.

Be sure you check all meds and supplements you take, eat a whole food unprocessed diet and learn about CC issues. There is a bit of learning to this gluten free thing but you will get it. Your in a great place to learn what you need to do, like having a seperate toaster for your gluten free items, replacing scratched and wooden cooking utensils, not baking with gluten flours for others etc.

I understand the "Is it all in my head" problem. Trust yourself. You know what's going on even if it seems crazy.
