Dear SocietyInDenial,
Yep, that low body temp thing is strange. I would feel like I was going to spontaneously combust, but my temp was so low! It is so weird. :blink: I sweat excessively, too. That makes it even more difficult to figure out. Even when my Thyroid was overactive, my body temp was low.
I have TMJ as well. My teeth are going bad now. I used to have good teeth. I do not know why they started going bad during the past several years. Grinding your teeth is common with TMJ. I do that some even when I am awake, because my teeth are so crooked and my TMJ is so bad. The mercury poisoning is typically included in the Lyme protocol. They can tell how long it has been in your system by testing your hair. There are other methods, too.
As Carla said, mercury is one of many things normally involved with Lyme. Babesia and other coinfections are a concern as well. Vitamin deficiencies will cause dizziness, headaches, exhaustion, mood swings, you name it! My blood pressure also tends to get low, as well as my blood sugar. One thing I recommend is do not stand up too quickly. That helps. I am a busy person, and I tend to move quickly. I make sure to eat regularly (about every four hours) with my blood sugar. Having reactive hypoglycemia is very dangerous. My father has it as well. You should get a blood sugar monitor if you can. Some are as inexpensive as $15. Making sure to eat a balance of fat, protein, and carbohydrate is a good idea as well. The Zone diet is great for that, and it is easy to do gluten-free.
You know, I was having the same idea you do! No one around here does gluten-free catering! You would think someone would. So far, I have hear nothing about it. I do not know what a Celiac would do if they were getting married! I hope I answered your questions.
Sincerely,

Hi everybody,

I've been taking 400 mg of magnesium in the morning and before going to bed to help my TMJ and teeth grinding.It's been about 2 weeks now and I'm starting to feel a lot better.They claim magnesium is a natural muscle relaxant.

Anybody knows how long it takes before it turns to a normal color? I've been gluten free for 8 weeks and no change in color.Also does being gluten cause dark circles under your eyes and do they go away being gluten free?
Thanks

I'm a dentist, and their are actually relations to teeth grinding and celiac diease. I would encourage you to see your dentist and have a night appliance made. I recommend them to my patients who have symptoms with their teeth grinding, i have never had any of my patients not like the appliances i've made. They help alot!


Thanks for replying to this web site !

I was wondering since your a dentist did your teachers( professors) tell you anything about Celiac disease and what it does to the enamel of the tooth? I'm sure if this could be spotted in children
then this could help parents get their children evaluated.I had this when I was a kid but Celiac disease wasn't known back then.Maybe you could check this with your patients in the future.

Thanks

Dear Charlieswpa,
You are welcome for the info! I have been gluten free since August of last year, so it has been six months! I cannot cheat, because I have a violent reaction to gluten. I get really nauseated, break out in a sweat, get diarrhea, start shaking, sometimes my hands go numb, and if I am lucky, swallow a Promethazine before dry heaves hit that make me feel like my insides are emploding. Cheating is NOT tempting! Unfortunately, my parents often gluten me because they are not gluten free.
At least, I was doing great for the first two months or so, but I saw my doctor recently who said Celiacs cannot tolerate dairy a lot either, so I am going to have to give that up. I bet she is right! I did not eat dairy the first couple of months at all. Casein intolerance is a common problem with Celiac.
As far as Magnesium goes, it does affect the muscles. You are right. It can cause muscle pain and jerking. I have twitches, but could have Lyme disease even. Until I can afford testing, I won't know much of anything about that. Though I miss a lot of foods I used to eat, I must say I view gluten as poison. I have rewired my brain to think of Cheez - Its and other things I no longer can eat as Raid. That way, I just go right past it and find something I am allowed! It makes it automatic. I do suffer from food lust, though. I had a dream the other night about spaghetti and huge meatballs with ragu sauce! It was wonderful! The first time I ate spaghetti where it could not make me fat or sick! LOL!

Hi NoGluGirl,

When I first got the symptoms of Celiac disease I was very sick like you especially
when I ate dairy.I don't drink milk anymore but still use butter and cheese.The disease didn't really bother me that much lately except being anemic,dry skinned and occasionally diarrhea with clay colored stools.But I know it was doing damage within.I always taken a multi vitamin Centrum which I beleived it has helped me.I'am going to go off this diet in a few months and get retested again to be 100% sure that I have it.Years ago after all the testing I went throught the doctor wasn't a 100% sure
I have Celiac disease.
You can still have your spaghetti and meatballs. There is spaghetti made out of rice that you can use and you can made your own sauce to besure it's gluten free.I feel sorry for you being so young having to go through this.Someday there will be a cure for this or there will be a gluten free wheat.
A another thing is I bought some Tom Sawyer's all purpose gluten free flour on it's web site and I make my own breads,cookies and cakes.You know what's funny? I owned a pizza shop for 5 years.
Have a great Sunday!

Charlie
