In Topic: Anyone Ever Feel Like Giving Up?

27 September 2011 - 09:26 AM

I feel you, girlie. I know how you feel with regard to the social outing but it does improve. My family thrives on big "food" gatherings and last year, I skipped out on Easter dinner because i didn't want to watch everyone eat the foods I miss so much. It does suck. I do ok with restaurants now because my friends/family know the places i can comfortably eat gluten free w/o a hassle from the staff. No one wants to be the weirdo at the table saying "Do you know what meals might be gluten free?"... and then the waitress looks at you like you're a total moron. Nice feeling! I typically just order a steak in the restaurant without seasoning or a cheeseburger w/o a bun.. and I am good to go without looking like I have a serious medical problem in need to management to come out and talk to me. I will admit that i am sick of rice and potatoes at this point. I have Hypoglycemia also, so the carb choices are wearing thin for me at this point! I, too, have "brain fog" and a horrible memory. I've had my thyroid checked and it is normal. Can't explain why that keeps happening either. I try my best to keep a positive attitude but I still experience bodily pain that I can't seem to get a grip on yet. I am seeing a physical therapist for that. Anyway, there are others out there that understand you! Vent here anytime! It does help to vent to people who truly understand! Melissa

In Topic: Foot Pain, Anyone?

Interesting stories, everyone! Thank you! I did a self test on accident. I was feeling so much better that I decided to wean gluten back into my diet. After a week or so of that ignorant move, my feet were in pain just like they had been years ago! It was crazy! Needless to say I am back on my gluten-free diet since I've been so miserable. My stomach has been hurting and I've been exhausted, achy and stiff. My joints all hurt. Crazy.

I had pancreatitis twice before being diagnosed with gluten sensitivity. I ended up bed ridden in a hospital on a feeding tube! It sucked!

In Topic: My Doctor Is An Idiot..

That was so mean of your doctor! Geez! I had joint pain, foot pain, stomach issues, even Pancreatitis, over many years of being misdiagnosed. I had been feeling better lately so I decided to wean gluten back into my diet! Guess what happened?! My feet began to throb in pain and my eyes have been burning a lot. So, that was proof enough for me to know that my diet is def impacting my aching body! I am back gluten-free now.. again

In Topic: Detox Symptoms

03 May 2011 - 06:45 AM

I went through several weeks of hell after going gluten free. I had a variety of painful detox symptoms. It was terrible. My whole body ached and my feet would get sharp, shooting pains. All of this calmed down eventually but for many weeks, I dealt with rashes, pain, cysts, you name it.
