Well ladies and gents of the internets, I have a silver lining to my thunderstorm. First ill start off by saying a little more abt me. I'm 27 and have been controlled by nerve racking pain and nasty other symptoms for the last 7 years. I've had trouble gaining weight in the process and always seemed to be at a vitamin deficit. Well over the past 8 days I have given up gluten and been feeling so much better. I know that this is a very short period of time but hey happiness can be found in everything. Since giving it up I have actually been able to semi take back control of my life. Stomach pains are almost non existing and I actually feel great. My family told me that I am not as grumpy and even seem to be considerably more alert. I spoke with my doc who wants to do more blood work and recheck everything. She seems very hopeful that we might have finally found an answer to my issues. Forgive my extreme happiness, I feel like I would burst at the seams if I didn't tell someone. God knows my family and friends are tired of hearing about it. Sincerely, - a happy zombie.

This is wonderful to hear.

Know that many of us improve right away and experience some set backs - just remember how much you improved in this short time and go easy - recovering Zombies need lots of rest and loads of whole foods!

Thanks for sharing - let us know if you have questions.

Hopeful for you :)

Undiagnosed Celiac Disease ~ 43 years

3/26/09 gluten-free - dignosed celiac - blood 3/3/09, biopsy 3/26/09, double DQ2 / single DQ8 positive

10/25/13 - MCAD

Health history since celiac diagnosis became too long -- moved to the "about me" section of my profile

My children and I all have multiple copies of the genes for Celiac Disease, along with large variety of symptoms/resolution gluten-free

Current tally from me, three kids and two grands: 4 diagnosed with Celiac Disease, 2 NCGS

Get PROPERLY tested BEFORE REMOVING GLUTEN.

ALWAYS independently research health related information found on internet forums/blogs.

"LTES" a Gem :)

Whew! I know what a relief that must be for you, to find an answer after all that suffering :) Make sure she does the testing to confirm your self diagnosis, and do keep us informed of how you progress. Fire away with any questions that come up.
