In Topic: Please Advise I Am New And Slowly Going Crazy

16 March 2007 - 03:24 PM

Hi Mandy, I have to go for an endoscopy and colonastomy in 10 days and was told to go back to eating gluten for the endoscopy test. The gasto..... dr said I only had to eat gluten for 2 weeks but have been for almost a month and I'm going crazy with the symptems--bloating constipation then diarhea.. sore stomach, gas etc etc. I can't wait to get back on the gluten free diet even if my tests show nothing as I've been gluten free since last Sept. and I had few symptoms at all. Why am I doing this to myself??? Have no idea why-just the satisfaction of saying I went for the test I guess. If they have to do one end they mite as well do the other LOL. Take care and good luck. Beth.

In Topic: After Going gluten-free, What Kinds Of Improvements Did You Notice ?

17 January 2007 - 01:51 PM

There are posts where people have mentioned that their skin isn't as red. I have very sensitive skin and have had acne since I was about 15(40 yrs +)-more scarring and big pores now with the occasional zit but much better since going gluten free. My skin is always red-any season. Is this an allergy or a type of exema(sp?) It hasn't inproved in that dept much.
Also the reflux has improved greatly. I still have a phlem in my throat and am always clearing it. Since it didn't improve much after going gluten free I'm presuming it's an alergy to something. I tend to get it more after eating yogurt, salad dressings and some sweets, even milk the rare time I drink it-would this be a reaction to lactose. When I was born my mother had to make soy milk for me to drink. Thanks and have a great eve Beth

I know mine was triggered bu a lot of stress and the dr just said it was depression or all in my mind and would put me on pills which I didn't take for very long as they made me feel worse. I can't believe how much better I feel after going gluten-free . Wish I'd know this years ago-life certainly would have been much different for me I'm sure. Beth.

In Topic: Recently Glutened And Couldn't Believe I Used To Feel This Way All Of The...

I too feel so much better mentally and physically since going gluten-free about 6 weeks or so ago. I had a spell where I was very emotional but I think that was caused by stress at work and I just had to tell myself to slow down and speak up instead of keeping it inside and letting it explode. I'm sleeping a little better and have more energy and don't let things bother me like they used to. I think I have a bit more nself esteem now also. I speak up for myself now. Beth.
