In Topic: Oddest Reaction To Gluten?

29 January 2009 - 02:23 PM

I don't know why its only 9:11...no reference to anything else in my life, September 11th or otherwise.

Maybe the number itself has no significance, other than it's a number that makes you notice it. Maybe the whole point is that you take notice.

When I notice stuff like that, it gives me faith that there's more going on here than meets the eye. And that helps me get through difficult times.

Wow, totally weird. I don't know what to make of it, but it is an interesting thing to track. And why 9:11 (also bringing up references to September 11th).

Or maybe a reference to emergency - 911

I've had weird things like that happen to me, but I just started the diet so haven't been glutened yet. I'll see what happens.

.....life can be so strange....

This is the first time I've heard of this. (I'm new - just been gluten-free for 4 days - improvement already). The bone in my gums is receding and I have very sensitive teeth. I also have a growth (I forget what it's called) though it hasn't changed in years. It's like there's a tooth trying to come out sideways, but there's no tooth.

I started a gluten-free diet 4 days ago, and I've already seen improvement in one way. As I mentioned earlier, I've been taking a prescription acid reducer in order to prevent constant acid indigestion. If I stop taking it for a couple days I get so acidic it seems to expand beyond my digestive system - like my eyes feel acidic. I stopped taking the pills 2 days before the diet, and it made me feel horrible as usual. On the first gluten-free day the acid started to subside, and for the last 2 days I've had no stomach trouble at all. This is astounding! I've had slight indigestion after eating dairy so I've cut that out as well. I guess I'm onto something!

I suppose it could be gluten intolerance, or wheat allergy, but I think it's celiac. I saw two pictures of DH that look exactly like my rash.

Thanks again for all the help! Where would I be without you?

Perhaps if you do the gluten challenge the rash will come back. :)

Keep warm. :lol:

lol rinne :lol:

Wow, that CT scan sounds brutal. Thanks for the advice. I gave up on the rash :) but I started a gluten-free diet 4 days ago, and I've already seen improvement in one way. For the past three years I've been taking a prescription acid reducer, in order to prevent constant acid indigestion. If I stop taking it for a couple days I get so acidic it seems to expand beyond my digestive system - like my eyes feel acidic. I stopped taking the pills 2 days before the diet, and it made me feel horrible as usual. On the first gluten-free day the acid started to subside, and for the last 2 days I've had no stomach trouble at all. This is astounding! I've had slight indigestion after eating dairy so I've cut that out as well. I guess I'm onto something!

Well, if lunch is impossible, there's always Perrier with a twist! B)

Hey Magician, any luck with the support group? That celiac.mb is possibly the bleakest looking site I've ever seen. Maybe you can save it! I'm a creative person, too. I'm mainly a visual artist, and I write and sing a bit.

Bon appetit!
