I don't know about the huge clots, I'm afraid.
DilettanteSteph thanks for the input about aurea migraines. I suffered from migraines as a teen and around my 20s but then they tapered off. This aura thing is totally new and came on AFTER I was off gluten. My gastro doctor declared they have nothing to do with each other. Maybe after going off gluten I've become much more sensitive and exposure triggered auras (but they tend to come every 7/10 days) For me, court is still open: hormones? celiac? hormones go crazy if ccd because of gluten? The only good thing is that I am not taking any drugs - apart from probiotics and homoepatic remedies. I have to say that this last month I've been OK - apart from a certain degree of leg itching - and that I ve not had an aura migraine in the last 20 days. But my last period came regularly at the right moment.
What I believe - but I have no proofs, and no doctor seems really interested - is that the two things are related: my hormones are playing up because of celiac. I may never know.
I can honestly say however that in the last seven months since going gluten-free I made progresses. Things are not perfect but in terms of energy, gastro problems, outlook on life generally I am much better. Then I get whacky weeks - and if I was ccd, I don't know when or how.
