Hi everone, hope everybody's doing good today.
Been gluten free for 2 and a half years now give or take. Due to ongoing fatigue symptoms that are not going away and that I don't want to put off on the fibro I have an appt with an internal medicine dr Sept. 13th. He will be testing from what I understand everything from thyroid, lupus, adrenals, etc. He also does celiac testing. So, I decided what the heck, I'm doing a gluten challenge. Been 3 weeks now, and I have to say it's going better than I thought it would. I've tried twice before but quit after 2 weeks both times, just couldn't take it anymore. I'm having problems and i'm not feeling good at all but i'm living with it. So far.
I've done told everyone that as soon as the testing is over they can all go fly a kite because i'm going back to being gluten free. I'm doing this for me not them. I just can't quit wondering if I might test positive or not. I know I definetly have a gluten problem.
Uugghhhh, just wanted to vent and say i'm still here and still alive. :P

Good luck, hope you get some results you can work with.

I have been considering doing a challenge myself but I can't bring myself to do it. I tried twice and never lasted past the first day.

Busy mom to 3 great kids (4, 8 and 18)

Gluten free since April 6, 2011 ~ Also sensitive to coconut, coffee and food dyes

Joint pain, mouth sores, back and neck pain, migraines, stomach pain, chronic fatigue, ADD and depression are all gone.
Wishing I had been diagnosed before celiac robbed me of the cartilage in my toes and the 3 babies we lost to miscarriages.

Three weeks - you are doing well! So glad you are not as sick as you had expected to be. My challenge was for nearly four months but as I did not feel sick from gluten it was easy for me. I was lucky. How long were you told to do the challenge for? Hopefully you will get answers not just regarding celiac but also any other issues.
