Ok, so I'm a diagnosed celiac with years of celiac disease diet - first started in 1999. I'm certain that my diet no longer contains gluten and has not for at least 2 years.
Since going gluten free though I've developed several other food allergies/intolerances - milk, eggs, citrus, various preservatives, etc.
Here's the kicker though - one aspect of the reaction spectrum that my body has to all of these foods is severe bone, muscle pain - I mean crippling that takes 2 weeks to clear and it seems to be getting worse - like scary worse. I got diagnosed with fibromyalghia, but it seems to go beyond that - I experience actual muscle damage - it literally feels like muscles are being torn from the bone even when I make the simpliest of movements. And, in fact, it seems that they are as my injuries take weeks/months to heal.
Anybody else out there like this? Are we looking at some other sort of connective tissue disorder here? Are the other food allergies/intolerances going to fade? Or get worse - they seem to be getting worse... Please don't say see a doctor, you guys are the pros, I haven't met a doctor yet that knows 1/3 as much about this stuff as I do and I'm out of money. This sucks. It was bad enough giving up gluten products, now milk, eggs, and all sorts of other stuff. Oh yeah, I seem to be allergic to just about every sort of pain killer there is so all I can do is moan in bed and pray for sleep. Starting to think I'm some sort of monk or something -
