My new years motto was stop whining since I finally found out why I was feeling poorly, but I can't help feeling so yucky with anxiety, headaches, gasses, and busted sinuses every day. When on earth am I going to get well :-( I'm tired of feeling anxious, and oh my god I'm so over the mind-fog. I just want to focus, put my mind into something productive and just get on with my life. On top of all the foods I've eliminated, seems that even more are going out the window until there is nothing but meat and veggies left. It sucks to have to cook yummy sauces, pasta, and potatoes for my husband while I eat a bloody salad :-( I miss cheese, and I miss eggs and creamy lasagnas. BLah

Could I still be detoxing from soy and lactose?? When should I decide if more foods are to be eliminated
I don't know what to do. I have a deadline tomorrow and I can't think. My house is so bloody messy and gets dusty faster than I can think. Everything is disgusting

I feel your pain! I have kept a good spirit throughout the process, but for me its has seemed three steps forward and one back, which is frustrating me.

I personally took the route of eating only a few things that I knew were safe for me... eggs, chicken, non-gassy veggies... then adding in something else, one item at a time. If there was no reaction, I added another. If there was a reaction, I waited at least a week before trying another new item.
And yet, my body is changing, now rejecting things that were ok a month ago! Joke is on me.

But the path to wellness is worth never putting another croissant into my mouth!

I can't help you with when to eliminate more items, since I did the opposite way. But I can send hugs and empathy for your frustration and physical symptoms!

Good luck!

Hi there, I noticed you mentioned anxiety - which for me was a major sympton. I went to see a Naturopath this past summer and she put me on a Calcium Magnesium Citrate (powder)supplement. She told me that undiangosed Celiac can lead to Magnesium deficiencies (among other things)if you are deficient in Magnesium you can experience anxiety. When I get get glutened my axiety becomes worse so I increase my Cal Mag supplement. If you are not already on a Cal Mag supplement you may want to consider it.

Diagnosed with Celiac via positive blood work in February 2011. Symptoms presented themselves after the birth of my daughter 7 years ago.

Thanks for the comforting. I woke up feeling just a little foggy, but then the anxiety decided to kick in and I felt devastated. I'm starting from 0 and eliminated everything today. Hubs will have to eat up everything!

Thanks for the tip Molly. I'm in the middle of changing clinics so I'm on my own for a while. I'm taking supplements which include everything at the moment. Don't know how effective that is.

Gosh that sounds so much like me. I'm trying Failsafe diet at the moment, which means I have lentils, rice, and brussels sprouts coming out of my ears. :lol: My Dr. thinks part of the issue may be perimenopausal migraines. Ugh, yuck. I want my brain back, please.

I agree with the other posters. Find a simple safe diet and then add things one per week. Keep a food/symptom journal so that you can track things back. If you keep to simple unprocessed foods it is easier to figure out. Keep track of brands too whenever you can. You will get back to a variety of foods before too long. It is challenging and requires discipline, but it's worth it to get yourself a safe diet.

Yes, I started the diet yesterday, and I've been keeping a journal for three weeks now. I just needed to vent yesterday because everything was piling up and I felt useless. In case anyone might be wondering I managed to keep with my deadline today :-)


I'm on meat and veggies now, and I'm using olive oil and unfiltered apple cider vinegar. Nothing else. I'm not sure if it's necessary to exclude fruits though.

You can always add fruits back if you start feeling better.
