Topics I've Started

Gluten/celiac And Anxiety.

24 August 2010 - 10:17 AM

I read so many posts listing GI problems as the typical symptoms of gluten ingestion. Does/has anyone experienced anxiety/depression as a symptom? I am battling this with my very life at stake and it sure would help to hear from someone that has gone through this.

Extreme brain fog that wont go away, dizziness, anxiety, insomnia, pounding heart, sweating and confusion. I was admitted into the ER this past Friday for these symptoms, my wife thought I was having a heart attach, and all my blood work came back fine, xrays came back fine and the doctor said my EKG was perfect.

The problem is I have not ingested any gluten, that I am aware of, for the past week. I know things like this take time and am really hoping this gets better.

Would anyone know if Quaker Oats Carmel Rice Cakes are gluten free? I read the ingrediants and did not see anything listed as gluten or wheat.

Carmel Rice Cakes?

Would anyone happen to know if Quaker oats Carmel Rice Cakes are gluten free? I read the list of ingrediants on the package and did not see any type of gluten/wheat ingrediant. Keeping my fingers crossed.

Our Suffering May Help Others.

21 August 2010 - 09:50 AM

The last week has been nothing short of hellish for me. As I get older I become more sensitive to the gluten stuff and even the smallest amount causes me missery. Yesterday I purchased some Gluten free waffles from a local grocery store. About 5pm yesterday I decided I wanted a few and out of habit pulled out the family toaster....what a huge mistake. I never thought that simple cross contamination would put me through that much pain and suffering.

Today I purchased my very own toaster, skillet, cutting board, spatula and a big plastic tub to keep them in. What I've noticed is once I've been "glutened" my symptoms last about 24 hours. Today my head is beginning to clear, depression is beginning to lift and my anxiety is calming down. Body aches and pains are starting to lessen and life is once again worth living.

I've been going through this for severl years and am actually contemplating some kind of local business/health food store/cook book to try and help others suffering from this terrible affliction. How many years have we all needlessly suffered from this disease because modern medicine wont/cant/refusese to help us just because big pharma has yet to develop a pill for us. The first drug company to get a "Gluten" pill to market will make zillions of dollars.

Im actually excited now that I have my own toaster because I have 3 loafes of Glutino Gluten Free Raisin bread in the freezer. 3 weeks ago I put two slices in the "family toaster" and about an hour later reacted harshly. I just thoght I was reacting to something in the bread..when actually it was cross contamination.

What Does Gluten Free Mean?

20 August 2010 - 12:21 PM

Does "Gluten Free" mean "Wheat Free" and does "Wheat Free" mean "Gluten Free." I'ver read a few articles stating just because a food item declares itself to be gluten free it may still contain wheat.

Last night I decided to try the "Gluten free Moo Goo Gai Pan" from PF Changs...2 hours later I was in horrible pain which lasted all night. That was the only thing I had to eat yesterday. Is this ever frustrating.
