In Topic: Less Sensitive....testing?

18 December 2010 - 01:04 PM

thanks for your thoughtful response.

It seems like every story I heard from people had them getting more sensitive with time, not less....is that not universal?

I am certainly grateful that my recent glutening did not leave me on the floor like it used to, but now all I can think about is C H E A T I N G! *evil laugh*

In Topic: Early Menopause?

Thank you both for the information!

You are right - my regular doc, who thought my stomach pain was 'nerves' for 12 years, refused to consider perimenopause or do any tests.
I will be seeing an OB/GYN soon that I was referred to by my psychiatrist, who is concerned that my recent out-of-the-blue bipolar symptoms may be hormonally-triggered. My mother went from unipolar to bipolar at this age and had perimenopause also at the same time (she is diagnosed celiac)

I am having many symptoms but am still having a tiny bit of period most months. The trouble is that I am on birth control pills so I *should* be having normal periods just due to those. For about the past year I have had some strong periods but mostly just a hint of one, which is absolutely not normal for me.

Anyway, I'm gonna get it all checked out but was glad to hear your experiences. Advice from fellow travelers is immensely comforting, as always.

In Topic: Can Lactose Intolerance Develop After Celiac

13 April 2010 - 09:24 AM


It happened to me....no problem with lactose until about 3 months after I went gluten free. Then it was really bad for about a year and cleared up completely after about 18 months. I hear it doesn't go away for everyone, but it did for me.

In Topic: Did You Have A Trigger That Started Your Symptoms?

Ha! Too funny! It's amazing how chronic pain can warp your mind and sense of humor!

Hi henny--I had a hysterectomy after being gluten-free for a couple of years and actually had the same thought! :D Happy to report no worsening of or additional symptoms. ;)

In Topic: Did You Have A Trigger That Started Your Symptoms?

13 April 2010 - 06:13 AM

I too think I had multiple triggers that made my symptoms progressively worse.
I had the standard things....surgery, severe stress, traumatic illness.
Each time I had a worsening of my symptoms that never backed off. Eventually after the last trigger I was unable to keep anything down and was in crippling pain for several weeks straight. When I stopped eating entirely for a few days and then re-introduced foods one at a time it was clear what was wrong with me.

I look forward to my next life trauma (not really) because I know it won't lead to more debilitating GI issues....YAY!
