Thanks for that link!  I am going to post the summary below.  I obviously would be #3 on the list as confirmed by an allergist.  I had noticed before I went gluten free that bread was my main culprit.  I could drink a beer or have a rice krispie treat and not notice anything 

but pizza, pasta, tuna sandwich, etc would be a problem.  Obviously going gluten free took out all the wheat from my diet and could be why I started to feel so much better.  I know you can be both gluten intolerant and have a wheat allergy so I am nervous about re-introducing barly, rye, and oats.  But man I haven't had a cold beer in 2 years so that is a tempting test right there.  I am going to do some research on the FODMAP foods.  Maybe it would be worth trying to avoid those for 2 weeks to see if I notice a difference.   


Five reasons exist as to why someone might feel better on a gluten-free diet. It’s crucial to understand which of the five is the cause in order to implement a safe dietary program.

1. Celiac disease
2. Non-celiac gluten sensitivity
3. Wheat allergy
4. Sensitivity to foods rich in FODMAP (fermentable oligosaccharides, disaccharides, monosaccharides and polyols); wheat grains are rich in FODMAPs and those sensitive to them have reported marked improvement
5. Placebo effect (this is quite common in adults)

Good advice everyone, thanks.  I will start carrying both with me and I will also make sure they test for fish with my allergy testing.  You would think fish and veggies would be okay, but who knows anymore.  I am going to have everyone test the practice pen with me to make sure my family is comfortable with it.  Thanks again.

I now one two epi pens and carry one with me at all times.  I am going to see an alergist asap but I believe I have to be off of the steroids and benedryl before I can.  I grew up with asthma and allergies to pollen, mold, and rag weed.  As an adult, those things seemed to fade in my 20's and then about age 30 I started to feel sick all the time again.  Finally figuring out the gluten was causing my issues I seemed to be healthy again and for 2 years I was problem free until Sunday.  Needless to say I am feeling a little bummed that I am back to stage 1 considering no asthma attack or allergic reaction as a child compared to this.  Wheezing and itchy red bumps are nothing now.

Thanks everyone. nvsmom, it is interesting you said bright kids because she is a very bright kid (I know everyone thinks that about their kid). She actually gets in trouble during reading lessons because she just reads the words when the other kids are supposed to be sounding them out and we were told by her teacher that they don't have anyone to pair her with for reading because she is so far ahead of everyone. I don't think she is gifted because she is average in other subjects. We were considering seeing if she could move up a grade or two for reading because she reads at about a 3rd grade level in Kindergarten. I have heard about bright kids having trouble 'sitting still and shutting up' as you put it. shadowicewolf, that sounds like her. She can't sit still and focus. I can't either, but I was actually never in trouble because I was so incredibly and horribly shy as a kid that I never spoke to anyone unlike my daughter who talks to EVERYONE and wants all the attention. :) Jestation, thanks for sharing I will keep an open mind before I dismiss it. 1desperateladysaved, let's hope so because I am not going to medicate my child at 6 years old. I am hoping we can overcome this. My other daughter is a model student and we never have issues with her. You would never guess they were sisters, they look and act nothing alike.

In Topic: When Was Your Celiac Triggered?

With me I believe I always had slight auto-immune issues because I had asthma and used to have to get shots every week because I was allergic to trees, ragweed, mold, and pollen. I was also so skinny that I used to drink those 2,000 calorie weight gain shakes in high school and was 5'10 and 130 pounds despite lifting weights and eating everything in sight. I triggered it severally at age 30. I truly believe and anti-biotic did it. I had my yearly sinus infection and after my antibiotics ran out I was miserabe for months on end. My stomach sounded like boiling water all the time, I couldn't sleep, I had uncontrolable anxiety, and anemic. After 2 weeks gluten free I already started to feel better. Anyone else have issues with antibiotics?
