Hi All...am New Here

I am Rose. Only recently came back online after being off for several years. I have been reading on this board for the past two weeks. While offline I also read quite a bit about Celiac Disease and Gluten Intolerance.

A bit over 2 years ago and during a stressful time I suddenly became nauseous and my GI tract went into quivering followed by constant spasming and constipation, episodes of very high blood pressures, my hair becoming very thin, my arms and legs tingling, shortness of breath and I steadily lost weight.

The endoscopy showed erosive gastritis but negative for Celiac Disease. After a blood test in which Digestive Disease Dr. said my IGE was very very high she did further blood work and said I was allergic to wheat and corn and that in time I would heal up. Onto an allergist who said I can't be allergic but an intolerant. I also stopped eating anything with soy quite a few years ago as it was causing me to have constant diarrhea. After quitting soy I started making my own bread using a bread flour with a high gluten content so perhaps that may have contributed toward the problem. I was lactose intolerant since my teens and a test now shows severe lactose intolerance. Whatever the problem since I stopped eating wheat a red raised rash I had for at least 20 years near both elbows has totally disappeared. However I still am in a state of constant GI spasming and constipation.

Am just introducing myself and giving background info. I enjoy visiting the forum here. You seem like a very supportive group of people and with a sense of humor. I'm still waiting for my sense of humor to come back :) and hopefully some of yours will rub off on me. Also looking forward to the recipe section. I recently discovered quinoa and love it and eat it just about everyday.

Hello and welcome! I'm so glad gluten-free is helping you. Try probiotics for the intestinal spasms. With regular use you should see some improvement?

    • I've been diagnosed with celiac a few months ago I thought that I had it for a while now it runs in the family.  I found out I had it a few months back when I ate chick fi a sandwich and had to go to the ER because I couldn't stop throwing up. They didn't know what it was and it took a few more months for anyone to take me seriously and find out what's wrong   Anyways I've gone gluten free now and I still have pains whenever I eat ANYTHING. It's cramping and burning and feels like my stomach is on fire.  I also have pains...below which I'm not sure what it is.  I ate a salad today, and now i'm in pain the salad had cheese, onion on it no dressing or any breading... Maybe I should stay away from cheese, I think it may be lactose and can't eat soy.   I ate some gluten free chex the other day with rice milk and ended up in pain.. I don't know maybe it's more than just celiac. I don't know if this is normal for people just going gluten free...maybe there was some hidden gluten in those foods. I don't know.   All i know is that this pain is hurting me and I'm tired. Thanks for reading...this is my first post.
    • I found my gas issues were caused by carbs, and sugars, something about how the bacteria in my gut changed and started making me gassy and extremely bloated when they got a hold of any thing more then a tbsp of grains, beans, fruit, or starch carbs. And no amount of medicine helped. Changed to 1/4 servings of those and mostly protein, fat diet. As for vitamin supplements I found I have to take B vitamin supplements 3 times a day to not go zombie mode. I personally found Liquid Vitamins Energy & Stress and the Nero-logic from them helps along with the occasional 1/2 bottle of 5 hour. As to carbonated water I avoided it when bloated cause it made me feel worse.
    • Butterbean, do go have a read of the dermatitis herpetiformis section.  See if anyone's story sound familiar to what you're experiencing.
    • Hi all. Well, it's been around twenty days since I've been taking Gas-X like meds (with simethicone), but no relief. Maybe I should drink bigger dose... Currently, I'm taking 80 mg four times per day.
      I'm so exhausted, both mentally and physically... Anyway, I have two questions:
      First, is it good or bad to drink mineral/carbonated water if you have severe trapped gas like me?
      Second: Is it possible to regain some physical strength/relieve fatigue with vitamin supplements? Thanks in advance.
    • I have had so many issues with my teeth--I keep getting decay and I have had filling after filling.  This past week, my dentist told me I may need a crown, which is pricey. I also have two missing teeth, which was a genetic thing that runs in my family. I am sick of hygienists telling me I am not doing enough brushing, flossing rinsing.  I do all three religiously (can't even imagine how bad my mouth would be if I didn't...)  Thankfully, last time I had my teeth cleaned, the hygienist said that my mouth was the cleanest one she had seen in years. And, she said, "something happened to your teeth developmentally." I explained how I had undiagnosed celiac disease many years. I am only 31... It is really disheartening.   What do you guys do to afford all this dental care?  My insurance doesn't cover a whole lot.  Thankfully, my dentist has felt bad and gives me discounts here and there.
