I was diagnosed with gluten intolerance earlier this year and had been doing really well. Until the past month. I fell off the wagon. I've been eatting gluten and feeling miserable. I hate feeling this way and I hate what it does to my children and friends. Today is my first day back on and it's a struggle. I need to get my life back and relationships. Sorry having a HUGE pity party today. I hate withdrawal. The hard part with the gluten free diet for me is I LOVE gluten, and am a vegitarian who is a picky eatter. Sigh.......
I was diagnosed with gluten intolerance in feb this year. I've been struggling staying on the diet. I have a serious addiction to good gooey gluten. I normally do well, but I keep falling lately. I feel like since I didn't get an official diagnosis of celiac that all the issues I have are in my head. I eat gluten and then I pay for it, and my family does too. I get really severe headaches and have no energy after I eat it. I wish I could just accept this in my head.
I guess I struggle with all of this because I'm such a picky eatter I'm a vegitarian so my meal/food options are limited and feel like I'm eatting the same thing repeatedly.
The rest of my family eats gluten so it's too easy to fall off. I try to buy things that I do not like for them so the temptation is not there.
I wish that there was a test that sys "yes" this is what you have. I feel mental. Sigh. Thanks for listening,
We were traveling yesterday, and I know that Bob Evans is "safe" to eat at. Their menu is VERY limited though. The manager told me that starting this Thursday they were offering an improved menu options for gluten free people. I was so excited because I do enjoy going out with my family once and a while.
When does gastritis go away? I've had it forever it seems. I have a constant pain under my right rib, which by gi said that was my gastritis pain. I have non erosive, but I have been gluten free for at least 2 months now and still no relief. Sigh.
Has anyone else had a toddler boy who has had speech delays? He's barely forming 2 word sentences. Our daughter at this age was talking in complete sentences. I know you cannot compare girls/boys and one child to the next. The dr was concerned snout it at his 2 year check up. I am on a gluten free diet and have tried both my kids on it as well. My husband and I both swear his speech improved when he was on gluten free. I've reintroduced gluten into his diet and his speech has maybe taken a step back or about the same.
We are trying another round of gluten free to see if thats what it was or not. I have tested negative for celiac but all my ailments improve on gluten free.
What is the next step? I've mentioned to the dr before that celiac runs in my family but he thinks that only older children can get celiac. I love my ped. And heis very cautious but I don't know how serious he will take me so we are trying gluten free again. I'm not going to switch peds because he is really good and my kids trust him.
