In Topic: Sleeping Disorders Linked To Celiac Disease?

"Idiopathic Hypersomnia" basically means 'excessive sleepiness without a known cause', with 'Central Nervous System' thrown in for good measure it sounds like (gotta love how giving something a long name distracts us from realizing we still don't have an answer) - so if you still have the problem once your celiac disease is under control keep looking for an answer.  It could also be initially caused by your celiac disease and then maintained by de-conditioning (ie are you so tired that you don't exercise? if so, lack of exercise will then make you tired, and on goes the cycle).

Someone else mentioned a chiropractor for your tmj, and I'll mention the same, although I guess it depends on what is wrong with the joint.  If it is out of place then a chiropractor is the perfect person to see.  My jaw was out of place for a month - not the same as years of pain, I know - but if I had relied on the advice from my primary care physician it would have turned into years of pain,  One visit with a chiropractor and it was back in place (of course it only took one visit because it had only been out of place for a month so my ligaments weren't too damaged - for some people treatment may take a lot longer).


In Topic: Favorite Foods

I use maifun noodles now as my main pasta.  I never found a 'gluten-free' pasta that I liked (in taste or texture) and they are all horribly expensive, so on a whim I tried the cheap rice noodles found in the 'ethnic' section of nearly any grocery store.  They are gluten free - at least the brands I've found - cheap, and stay firm instead of mushy for hot pasta dishes as well as cold. 

 

I haven't found a bread I like, sorry.  Udi's bagels are a little ok.

 

Good luck!!
