Decided To Do Gluten Challenge For Sure This Time, Uugggh!
Posted 19 August 2011 - 01:25 PM
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.

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)

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.

When our lives are squeezed by pressure and pain, what comes out is what is inside.
