In Topic: Please Help Disoriented Has Stopped Me From Driving In The Morning!

I had a similar and strange (while driving) foggy, dizzyness experience the other day. I was driving my kids to school and then heading to work. On a major freeway, I got very dizzy and foggy-headed. My son yelled "MOM, WATCH OUT!" (He's 13.) HE had to grab the wheel and put us back in our lane!! Oops. I was veering towards a big rig next to me.

I pulled over, got my wits about me (as much as possible), pulled it together and made our way to my Moms house, about 10 mins away. I called my work and told them I was sick, and had my Mom take my boys to school. (I got lucky...My Mom is in the middle of moving to another city and changing jobs and happened to be home.)

I called my doctor and spoke to him, and he basically said he didn't know what happened. Doc said it could be anything from low blood sugar, a glutening, or a lactose allergy reaction. I went right to bed, and woke up 4 hours later still a bit foggy headed but overall much better.

Anyway, your post intrigued me, because we are in similar boats. I was glad to see the current and future responses.

Good luck. You are not alone!

I have to put the package down and slowly back away from the food item if it says "produced in a facility that also processes wheat." I know from personal experience that it will 9 times out of 10 make me very ill. But I am just that sensitive. I'm pretty new myself, but from what I hear, our sensitivity may or may not become less intense as time goes on. Good luck to you. You can always play personal guinea pig. LOL!

Gee, it's 7:30 now. Do you have time? Good luck to you! You get a new beginning in a new house!


LOL! Yeah, I probably should have ran to the grocery store last night, but I've been so busy! I have time to run today while "the men" load the heavy stuff into the UHaul. Great ideas friends! Thanks! :0)

There may be risk of CC. Someone who knows will hopefully reply.

However, there's always the gluten-free, dairy-free products such as Purely Decadent and Coconut Bliss.


3 cheers for Purely Decadent and Coconut Bliss! I'm very dairy intolerant (it seems to have gotten worse over the past few months...). Those two brands are the only ones that work for me, and don't taste like ka-ka! Good luck! Read labels, and call and bug manufacturers! They love it when we do that! ;) I do it all the time! If I'm in a grocery store, odds are, I'm on my phone at least once calling "random company # 35" to verify their gluten-free status! :0)

Yay yay yay yay yay! Congats! I'm in a similar boat...been feeling great for over a month now! I'm trying to not let "pessimistic" Heather back into my brain, but it's still hard. My paranoia runs deep because my symptoms of glutening are so intense!

Good job again, and good job for staying vigilant! Mad props to you!
