Mojo Returning?

12 posts in this topic

Hey

I am so excited. I just had a NORMAL day!!!!!

I looked after both kids at home while one got over a bug, did 3 loads of washing, 2 runs of dishwasher, cooked meals, made Christmas decorations with kids, made calls, tidied up.

That might not sound impressive to everyone, but I have dragged myself through the last few weeks, 3 glutenings, tired, crabby, couldn't concentrate.

I have been gluten-free since September, and have generally improved. I had a couple of really good weeks in October, then better than pre gluten-free but struggling.

So far it is 1 day, but even if I only get the odd day like this, it is so good to feel like me. It makes it easier to keep going. My plantar fasciitis has gone again too, no more hobbling.

Wishing good healing to you all :)

That is awesome. Psh... not impressive? Maybe to the rest of the world. To us? We totally get it. It starts with one day. Next thing you know it'll be two, then three and eventually you'll stop counting. They'll just be intermittent good/bad days. (That is where I am.) Congratz on being normal! :D

That's great MW! Nice to feel like a person again eh? Keep up whatever you are doing and the good days should get more frequent. :) Turning it around so the bad days are the unusual days is a definite possibility Congrats!.

You guys are brilliant. You are all so on my planet! Nobody else gets it... Nobody else understands.

That one normal day... Bliss! I had one last week, actually no, I had 2! (I thought I was doing well until they said my intestines are still damaged)...

May your days of normality stretch into a lifetime!

I was amazed at how good I felt when I decided to go on the Medifast gluten-free diet. At first I thought it was the new influx of protein in my diet. And then I thought it was the pounds finally coming off, but now I do truly think it is the lack of gluten I am taking in.

I keep reading as to how folks are feeling better once going truly gluten-free, and now I think I am finally joining the crowd!

I have never had the outward symptoms most others have had, have always been anemic, have been plagued with migraines for the past 10 yrs., and osteoporosis has made me have both knees replaced at 53. But now I am truly feeling like actually moving around, exercise is not the torture that it had been. And I find that I am accomplishing things in my days that I never thought I'd be able to complete. So if this is gluten free - I am willing and able to continue with the new lifestyle.

I just saw this thread (sorry to be so late) and wanted to say WHOOHOO! to getting your mojo .....and your groove.... back, MW.

(sorry you have the flu right now, but that is just a crappy part of life and soon you will be "good mojo-ing" once more.)

Addy will make fun of me now for making up another word.

I "get" why those days of feeling "like yourself" once again are cause for celebration. Hope you see many more of them in the coming weeks.

    • Hi Laurabella, Yes, you could have celiac disease!  It is important to keep eating gluten until all testing is completed, including an endoscopy with biopsy samples if the doctor recommends it.  The doctors usually do want the endoscopy.  The biopsy samples of the small intestine lining (4 to 6 samples) are checked for microscopic damage that indicates celiac disease.  Gall bladder problems can happen with celiac disease.  Your pain could also be from intestinal damage in any part of the small intestine. Some things you could try while you are waiting for your tests to be completed are stopping all dairy, and taking peppermint tea for gas in the stomach.  Celiac disease damage makes it hard to digest dairy sugar (lactose) and that can cause bloating and pain.  Constipation and diahrea are also possible fun symptoms. Welcome to the forum!
    • Hi Beachgrl, We have had members with microscopic colitis before, usually in addition to celiac disease.  Have you been tested for celiac disease?  The reason I ask is, it is much better to be tested for celiac before starting the gluten-free diet.  The primary tests for celiac are to detect antibodies to gliaden in the bloodstream.  Those antibodies start to decline when a person stops eating gluten, so the tests become useless. There is no reason a person can't have more than one digestive system disease.  So it is smart to be tested for celiac disease if you can get the testing arranged.  Any change in symptoms after stopping gluten is an indicator that gluten is causing a reaction of some kind.  It could be celiac, or it could be non-celiac gluten intolerance, (NCGI).  There aren't any reliable tests for NCGI yet. Welcome to the forum!
    • I have microscopic colitis. Having a bad flare of D.  On Budesonide for first time for this. It's helping some- only on it a week. Do you think gluten free would help even if tested negative a few years ago?  Was gluten free yesterday and no BM changes. Even had cramps this AM that wasn't really having before. Thank you!!
    • Do you want to tell us the name of it ans where it is located.  maybe someone else will be looking for a restaurant there. Also, it is very helpful if you go to Find me Gluten Free and review it.
    • Hi. Im currently under consultants at my hospital,  and have just been for a blood test to test for celiacs. My symptoms are.... Low weight (8stone and 5ft6tall) Joint pain,particularly my hips and lower back  Severe pain in my gall bladder area which happens spontaneously... Especially after eating foods containing gluten.  When i have foods with wheat in i pain in my  right side just under my bottom rib, i become a bit spaced out and cant focus on anything. Also get diahorrea aswell. I recently contracted C-Diff and was in hospital for 4 days very poorly. Im 29years old (female) and the doctors r trying to work out what is wrong with me. I have always struggled to gain weight,  even after having 2 children i am still only 8stone. I was just wondering if u think i could have celiacs?  The pain in my side has been on and off for 7years! And the last 3years its been severe. And it definitely comes on as soon as i have gluten/wheat.
