Hidy everbody,

Well, i'm back, i've been gone awhile, a liitle over a year and I came back because i'
m having some issues and i'm alittle ashamed because I knew better.

Oh man, lets see if I can get all yall up to speed.

Was a truck driver battling Fibromyalgia, Chronic fatigue and supersensitive gluten issues. Well, it got down to where a little over a year ago I had to come off the truck due to back problems as well as the Fibro and found out that I have not 1, not 2, not 3 but 6 bulging discs in my neck and back. Can anyone say OWWW? Lol

3 in my neck with a bone spur and 3 in my lower back. Been seeing a Chiropractor, also I have an appointment in a couple of weeks with a nuerologist. See what he has to say and discuss whether or not if I should try for disability and blah, blah blah, on that.

Made the mistake of having the Celiac test due to family bugging me and of course it was negative which I totally expected but shouldn't have done because you can guess what happened next.

Yep, went back on the gluten and here I am right back where I was where I started. Have gained back 25 lbs of the 50 I lost, back on blood pressure meds, back on anti depressants, anemic again and feeling like crap on top of everything else.

So, gearing up to do this again and I plan on being gluten free from now on no matter what anybody says. So, I came back for the great moral support.

To help with this I ordered the Nutribullet to help get me started, (was wondering if anyone here has tried it?) Now, just gonna wait until it comes in, doing research and pysching myself up to do this.

Oh, and I got married to the ole Goat about 3 months ago. (Ducking behind the couch). I'm a glutton for punishment ain't I? :P

So, how's everyone doing? :D

Sorry you are having such a bad time. Can I just ask, when you had a test for Coeliacs disease, was it a blood test or a biopsy? (As the blood tests are not reliable) presumably you were eating gluten in your diet prior to the test also?

There is nothing like desperation to help keep one in line. Sorry about the pressure that was on you. I am experiecing some of that, but it is starting to change. I feel better enough for others to notice since I have been gluten free 6 months and grain free 4.

You have some rather observeable problems. I can't wait to hear about them resolving.

Hey Girl! yeehaw!

I wondered where you went off to. I missed you!

Congrats to you and the old goat. :)

Glad to see you back on the gluten-free wagon and back on the forum.

...and you know what you need to do--it's just like riding a bike (or in your case, driving a big truck)

Cheers, IH

Thanks everyone for the welcomes. I appreciate it.

Yes, I ate for gluten a good 2 months before the bloodtests. 2 cheeseburgers a day for 2 months plus Macaronie and cheese. The more gluteny the better and it didn't work. Just felt like crap and visiting the bathroom a lot.

And no, it wasn't a gluten free cake, but knowing how I would react I restricted the gluten stuff a couple days before and for the big day so wouldn't have a problem.

Anyway, back here to do the research again and get back on the bandwagon so to speak. It'll be easier to do this time I hope because I know to expect the withdrawals and cravings and everything that goes with it.

I've been spending a lot of my time the last year on a preparedness site. Getting prepared to try to live through an economical colapse, or even maybe the grid going down. Very interesting people.

Anyway good to be back and looking forward to a better life. So tired of feeling like crap. Hopefully, once i get my inner self working again my back and Fibro will settle down some also.

My neighbor's doc tests his fibro patients for Celiac. But even if they test negative, he has them eat gluten free/lite (take the burger off the bun style gluten-free). He says it really helps the fibro.
