Topics I've Started

Does Anyone Feel My Pain?

23 January 2013 - 10:00 AM

I brought a steak with broccoli and cauliflower for lunch today, but all my coworkers are eating Burger King. I'm eating an expensive steak, but I'm craving that juicy greasy gluten and dairy filled cheeseburger!! Does anyone feel my pain? You never appreciate what you have until you loose it. Not that burger king is that great for anyone, but man it'd be nice to just stop at the corner fast food place every once in a while.....

Allergy To Gluten Vs Intolerance? Histamine Reaction

10 December 2012 - 08:41 PM

I was diagnosed with gluten intolerance in April 2012 after a biopsy. But I'm beginning to wonder if I may be allergic to gluten instead of intolerant. I'm very careful about cross contamination. It seems if I'm in the store by the bakery I get a headache between my eyes and start getting watery eyes and sneezing. I think this week as well as one other time since going gluten-free I've been cross contaminated. I get a really bad post nasal drip that causes an intense sore throat. Took claritin d based on drs advice for 5 days and it completely disappeared. It seems to be a histamine reaction. Could it be an allergy to gluten, or maybe an allergy to milk or nuts? I can usually tell when I've been glutened, I have intense stomach pain. Both times didn't have the stomach pain. Could I be having a histamine reaction to milk? Is blood test a good way to check for allergies? Anyone else have a histamine reaction?

Late Period

16 August 2012 - 02:28 AM

So I'm newly dx with gluten intolerance within the last year. The last two months my period has been late, but I'm not pregnant. I've seen on the forum others who have gone gluten free and then their periods become irregular. My question is should I do anything to help, like certain vitamins etc? And how long should I let this go before seeing a dr? And I guess what kind of dr should I see, my gastro since related to gluten?

Foot Pain=Gluten?

21 May 2012 - 05:42 PM

I'm a few months new to gluten free. I've noticed so many of my old daily symptoms were gluten related and have now gone away. I used to have very bad stomach problems with gluten, but have now noticed when cc that I only get a very very bad headache. No stomach problems noticeable. Is this true? Does your reaction to gluten change over time?

Also just throwing this out there, the arc of my right foot has been tingling / grabbing me. Could this be gluten related?

New To Gluten Free Kitchen

20 May 2012 - 11:37 AM

I have been redoing my kitchen to remove all of my old gluten cook and bake wear. Im working on storage containers now. Do I need to have glass lids too? Or will brand new glass containers with plastic lids be ok? My kitchen is 90% gluten free. I do make gluten items for other family members just a few meals a week. Even if they are glass should I keep certain ones as gluten free? Same thing with glass measuring cups, do I need two sets?
