When Did Your Neuro Symptoms Subside
0

6 posts in this topic

Hello,

I've been gluten-free for 4 weeks now and have seen a ton of my physical symptoms subside or reduce but my neuro symptoms, mainly forgetfulness, saying the wrong words and drifting off mid sentence or thought, like I just did trying to come up with the third symptom I just listed have not resolved. I don't walk into walls or door jams any more and my balance is greatly improved.

Did you have these types of symptoms? How long did it take before you saw a huge improvement in them?

I found the worst of the forgetfulness and inability to focus improved within a couple of months. I can now shower in the morning without having to really think hard about whether I have just rinsed shampoo or conditioner out of my hair. However, after nearly a year, I am still forgetful about shopping lists etc, and it is still a struggle to focus properly at work.

I am usually "ok" and have been gluten free since march 6 this year. but last week at chuch i wasn't thinking and took the bread for communion and today I am still foggy but better. For me the 2nd to 3rd day after a glutening is when fog head sets in. before that its usually the GI symptoms.

I am so relieved that I'm not the only one who does that!

I am very lucky, one of my priest's dear friends who is also a priest is a Celiac and when I went to my priest about my diagnosis she consulted her friend about how to handle communion with regard to me. I get special rice wafers and she puts it in a small dish for me before the service begins to avoid CC then I take it out myself when she presents it to me. I keep going back and forth on the wine though. So far it hasn't appeared to give me any CC glutening, I get served first after my priest and the acolyte to reduce any chances, but I don't yet know what my reaction will be when I get accidental glutening. I might gluten myself after 3 or 4 months just so I know it when it happens.

I found that these eased up gradually for me and by about 6-9 months were about gone except when accidentally cross contaminated. The neuro symptoms can take a while.

    • What's an " iodine test"?  Haven't heard doctors doing that to diagnose DH.
    • Hello! I've just been given my blood results and told they are highly suggestive of coeliacs but will have to wait till next month to see the gastroenterologist and who knows how much longer for a biopsy. My igA, igG and tissuetrans igA were all over 250 and tissuetrans igG was the only one that was normal. These results don't mean much to me yet but I'm told they are very high. I'm now quite fearful of how much damage I've gone to myself. I've had stomach problems for 25 years (just turned 40) and have often steered clear of too much bread and pasta for how bloated it made me feel but the symptoms were always vague and inconsistent so I kept eating. I had a couple of boats of gastro in the past few months (thanks kids) which I took a lot longer than normal to recover from which looking back may have been related. Then last Friday I had a blowout with wine, cheese, crackers, pizza and chocolate cake. I'm sure I've probably had blowouts like that before but I have never felt so sick before and am still slowly recovering. This is what finally prompted me to go back to my GP after being fobbed off so many times over the years. So I guess my question and my concern is whether there is still  chance of a false positive with levels like this? I worry what else it might be if not coeliac. I'm also worried that I may have done so much damage to myself that I will have several disorders going on! I'm also still recovering from last Friday and wondering when I'm going to feel better. I've stayed off gluten and dairy since my blood result a couple of days ago but feel like I'm allergic to food in general.  Thankyou!!    
    • Here's what the Klondike Bar makers say on the FAQ page of their website (August 2016): Are your products gluten free? Nope. They are not. We have not validated for gluten free. We do not operate allergen-free manufacturing sites, however we do have allergen management programs in all our facilities. The intent of these programs is to avoid unintentional cross-contamination of allergens between products. Our product labels adhere to the FDA’s strict regulations regarding declaration of ingredients and allergens. We do not use the terms “Natural” or “Artificial Flavorings” to hide the existence of any allergens. RECIPES CAN CHANGE. We strongly recommend that allergic consumers refer to ingredient declarations EVERY TIME they purchase processed foods.
    • I tried the iodine test but couldn't leave it on very long because it itched too much. I left it on maybe 30 minutes lol. Did anyone try it and have the same response??
    • Had my scope today. Dr said my esophagus is damaged and stomach inflamed. Waiting on biopsy results. Taking protonic and flagyl and he said to go ahead and try cutting gluten out to see if that helps. Thanks for the feedback everyone!
