Two months in and I have some kind of sinus infection. I started feeling bad about two weeks ago. I suspect I have a fructose intolerance. I was drinking a lot of strawberry mango smoothies for breakfast and I was experiencing diarrhea. TMI. That has stopped since I switched over to strictly blueberry avocado smoothies every couple of days. When I first went gluten-free, my night sweats stopped. They have since started again. Granted, it does get hot in my bedroom and we've been dealing with a heatwave here in Kansas City.

What kind of problems did some of you experience in the first couple of months?

Lots and lots of pop up food allergies, weight gain, worse constipation, migraines, lots of itchiness and benedryl. You are not alone. Everyone reacts differently and I am told it can take years for your gut to settle. Hang in there and feel better!

Thanks, Hornet! I feel better now, knowing that I'm not alone in this. Seems as though all the food I could tolerate before the big sickness hit, I can't tolerate now. My potato love affair is probably over for a while.

Hmm, some good days feeling better but mostly bad days feeling yucky. I made a lot of mistakes eating things I shouldn't have at first. First few months were an improvement but not at all a normal well feeling person. I seemed to have reactions to just about everything I ate in fact. And not the kind like ": Oh that was so yummy, I could eat a bunch more!" type reactions. :)

Then of course I eventually got somewhat better and got sicker again. I did an elimination diet and found out nightshades were a problem. Improved some but was still sick. Another elimination diet, found out soy was a problem. This was over a period of a couple years. Started taking thyroid pills in there somewhere and that helped a lot. Ah well, most recently found out that grapes are a problem. Got rid of them. So now I feel pretty good. Only took a few more years to get there.

Proverbs 25:16 "Hast thou found honey? eat so much as is sufficient for thee, lest thou be filled therewith, and vomit it."
Job 30:27 My bowels boiled, and rested not: the days of affliction prevented me.
Thyroid cyst and nodules, Lactose / casein intolerant. Diet positive, gene test pos, symptoms confirmed by Dr-head. My current bad list is: gluten, dairy, sulfites, coffee (the devil's brew), tea, Bug's Bunnies carrots, garbanzo beans of pain, soy- no joy, terrible turnips, tomatoes, peppers, potatoes, and hard work. have a good day! :-) Paul
