#875943 Really?!? *^&%$#@

Posted by djs89 on 21 June 2013 - 08:58 PM

I don't know if it will help you feel any better, but I once tried to steam my skin pores over a bowl of boiled water, and I burnt my nose, and ended up with a very noticeable red burn mark on the tip of my nose. It was right before an event the next day. I ended up looking like Rudolph the reindeer for about a month afterwards. So I can kind of relate to your embarrassment..

 

Don't distress too much about it. If by any slim chance you have clay (calcium bentonite clay) it is great to use for skin inflammation. It helps reduce redness very quickly. If not, a green tea bag (after it's been in hot water) sometimes helps too.

#875864 Dunkin Donuts gluten-free?!

Posted by djs89 on 21 June 2013 - 02:05 PM

It's nice that some places are starting to offer gluten free foods but I probably would pass. I still don't really want to eat rice flour, sugar, corn syrup, etc. for other health reasons. I can't eat sugar because my teeth have weakened enamel (which I think possibly celiac contributed to)

#875851 What Causes Neurological Symptoms

Posted by djs89 on 21 June 2013 - 12:51 PM

I have been on a gluten free diet for about a month now, and my health was beginning to improve. But I was still skeptical about whether I am gluten intolerant or not, so yesterday I did a "test". I consumed 2 pieces of gluten pizza and a gluten muffin. The pizza did cause any symptoms right away. But later I ate a muffin and shortly afterwards felt like I had been drugged or poisoned. Brain scrambled and odd thoughts/behavior. Very unclear thought pattern and mental confusion. Often times, this goes along with poor coordination, slurred speech, headache. Maybe these symptoms are tied partially to fatigue, however it does not seem like the usual "food coma" type of symptoms that people experience simply from eating too much. The neurological sort of symptoms are the usual ones I have always dealt with after consuming a food with wheat/gluten, but I had been in denial that it was actually gluten causing it, without definitive proof that I am gluten intolerant. However a few people on this forum with celiac/gluten intolerance seem to report the same/similar symptoms. So are these common gluten intolerance symptoms, and how do they manifest?

 

It's been nearly 24 hours since I consumed gluten and the headache/brain fog feeling persists, only worse. I hope it goes away soon, because right now I can't think clearly/concentrate or accomplish any work that needs to be done. Just writing this forum post has been a challenge, I've had to revise it several times just to make sure I am making sense. I find it odd that my brain is effectively stunted after consuming gluten. I wonder if it's just fatigue - blood to the stomach/intestines and away from the brain, or some sort of inflammatory response, and can actual brain damage occur over time?

#869456 Does Gluten Affect Your Thinking ?

Posted by djs89 on 18 May 2013 - 05:40 AM

The main symptoms I experience are neurological symptoms..dizziness, headache, fatigue, brain fog, feeling of pressure in the head or sinus, confusion, irritabilty, inability to focus or concentrate, sore bloodshot eyes. I've had people think I'm drunk or on drugs.

 

I am still not 100% sure if I have a gluten intolerance problem, but it seems like a possibility. These symptoms may or may not be entirely correlated to gluten consumption.
