... the "how fast can I get to a loo when out in public" thingy, because yeah, I thought I, too was done with that malarkey I endured for 40+ years and so...

gee, and I am whining because the same has lasted for about 6 months for me! :(

Adelaide, any chance it may not be milk, or cheese per se, but some additive they sneak into the cheese? That did happen to me, causing severe D and blistery rash.

The cheese is simply listed as having cream, cultures, enzymes and salt. Exactly what it takes to make cheese.

My problem is most assuredly not A1 casein. I drank like a quart of milk and feel pretty much fine. I think I'm just going to attempt to shrug it off at this point and try to fit more pieces if/when I get that sick again. Until then it will remain a mystery and I will try to forget it ever happened so it doesn't eat away at me.

I hear you. Sometimes, even after I wrack my brain trying to figure out what made me feel yucky (when I had been enjoying a

decent stretch of "peace in the land"), I just give it up, too.

This healing road is so up and down and sometimes, I think it's just a wonky day for the old GI tract.

It is frustrating for sure, but not worth making ourselves nuts.

(or any more nutty than we already are....) :D

Strongly suggest you get onto A2 milk only asap, cheese is only concentrated Milk, you can have a mild problem with milk and a much larger problem with Cheese and milk chocolate. Nothing to do with lactose sugar imho, just the A1 milk protein. Yoghurt is the go because the bacteria eat the lactose before you eat it anyway and you really don't want to eat much sugar with a dodgy gut. I originally thought all milk problems were lactose related but after getting more and more unwell on vintage cheese which has no lactose I've seen that theory is just not true.

Thanks for the tip, and maybe I wasn't totally clear on this with all of my comments on testing and trying to expand my diet. I have completely given up trying to expand my diet. I have for over two months now been on raw milk which I didn't know then, but understand now is A2. It has been for that entire time, until "the incident" been the exclusive source of milk for me. I do not eat milk chocolate as that crap is horrid and nasty, milk has no place in chocolate. I am quite a chocolate snob as a matter of fact. I even made my own peppermint bark out of rather pricey chocolate. It is oh so good!

After drinking milk, eating cheese and going through various type of pain for no apparent reason for that cheese "product" thing I tried I have determined that I in no way have any sort of issue at all with milk. Not lactose, not casein. I will continue with my raw milk though because it is not iodine contaminated and I can also buy cheese made from it. I find that the milk you can buy in the store tastes like crap and frankly if I have to pay almost three times as much for my milk, then so be it. At least it won't give me a rash or suck.

That's great you have a source of raw A2 milk, I have a friend with a A2 cow, I should probably be asking her for some milk too. I work at a dairy farm occasionally also who mostly have A1 cows but also some Jersy cows which are mostly A2 so I have a contact there, I could in theory get my own pure A2 cow one day :0 could just have it in the heard and milk it separately into a container.

    • Anxiety is quite a common symptom with undiagnosed celiacs. It should improve if not disappear when you go gluten free. Be sure to CONTINUE eating gluten until the endoscopy!   Welcome to the club!
    • Although serological tests are useful for identifying celiac disease, it is well known that a small minority of celiacs are seronegative, and show no blood markers for celiac disease. A team of researchers wanted to define the prevalence and features of seronegative compared to seropositive celiac disease, and to establish whether celiac disease is a common cause of seronegative villous atrophy.

    • This was absolutely me before diagnosis.  The worst of all of my Celiac symptoms occurred in the morning.  The anxiety was terrible in the mornings, I had horrible nausea, no appetite, felt light headed, dizzy and shaky, diarrhea, stomach cramps... the works.  Honestly, I don't know if it was the symptoms causing the anxiety, the anxiety making my symptoms worse, or a combination.  I almost dropped out of school because I felt so terrible every morning I didn't want to leave the house to go to class.  The first few doctors I saw insisted all of my symptoms were psychological and tried to give me anti-depressants/anti-anxiety meds, but I knew there was something else wrong with me.  I had always been a bit "high-strung," but for the year I was really sick before diagnosis, the anxiety got out of control. I was diagnosed with celiac disease 6 months ago and have been gluten free ever since.  It took time, but everything is gradually improving.  The morning anxiety is much improved and some mornings, is completely gone.  I realized a month or two ago that I no longer spend the first hour after waking up gagging and dry-heaving, something I had done for so many years that I just thought it was normal for me.  I can brush my teeth and my tongue without feeling like I'm going to puke.  I eat breakfast now, which I have never done, because I was always too anxious and nauseous in the mornings to be hungry.  I am not "all better."  I still have bad days and even bad weeks.  If I get glutened the anxiety comes back full force.  If I'm super-stressed out or letting my health slide (not eating well, not sleeping enough) the AM anxiety seems to return.  But, it has been slowly improving over the last 6 months and has become so much more manageable.   Your anxiety could be a separate disorder from the celiac disease, but for me, it seems it was absolutely related and continues to get better.  Don't get discouraged if you don't see an immediate improvement or experience relapses after improving.  Often, I feel like it's a two-step-forward, one-step-back kind of thing, but it is getting better.
    • I have suffered with GERD for 20 years and accidently found out it was a gluten intolerance. I had gone on Atkins years ago and noticed that I had no GERD symptoms while on the diet. I didn't make the connection at that time. Then I went on the Mayo Diet back in the winter and once again, the constant was having no bread primarily. I had also noticed that I would have major attacks anytime I ate Italian food. I blamed it on the onions, the tomatoes, herbs...but I could tolerate all those foods separately. Then, like a lightning bolt...it hit me...the culprit was the "innocent" pasta. BINGO!!  I went gluten-free in March 2016 and I have had no GERD now in 5 months. I feel as if it is a gift to me.   
    • Hey everyone!! Dealt with morning anxiety, complete lack of appetite in the AM/diarrhea if I tried to eat, fatigue, etc. for about two months. Saw doctor and they first prescribed me antidepressants while they ran bloodwork. Got bloodwork yesterday, positive result for celiac, going to get the endoscopy/biopsy soon. Anyone else have morning anxiety like CRAZY before cutting out gluten? Afraid to leave the house because of feeling faint, dizzy, etc., like I'm going to pass out. I haven't actually passed out, but the feelings are all there. It's hard to overcome the anxiety some time!   Hoping someone else has had similar symptoms and that I can look forward to this being over soon!! Thanks everyone xoxo
