so March 10th will mark two years gluten-free, and I feel so much better! However here's what's going on...
I'm dating this great guy but earlier this week he told me that my breath and body odor really turn him off. I'm an extremely hygienic person...brush and floss at least twice a day, shower once a day, wear deodorant...so when he told me, quite honestly I was shocked and dumbfounded I ended up crying in front of him, and I am NOT a crier. It didn't seem to scare him off, and I could tell he felt really bad, but at the same time despite having my ego bruised, I'm glad he told me.
He asked me if it could have anything to do with being gluten-free, and I said I didn't think so, but now I'm not so sure. Before going gluten-free, I always had a thick white coating on my tongue, but since going gluten-free that has pretty much disappeared.
I've never liked using mouthwash because it burns my mouth, but in the last few days I've used it, I'll notice I'll be good for about an hour, but then I get my normal taste back in my mouth. My nose is still continually stuffed up, and I've read that having sinus problems can contribute to halitosis, but I don't know why it's stuffed up. I always have to breathe out of my mouth instead of my nose. My GP's suggestion was to take Zyrtec all the time...not doing that.
I'm just so frustrated because I feel like I keep trying to fine tune my diet, but then something else gets out of whack. I don't want to take pills continuously for anything, I just want my body to cooperate. Does anyone have any natural remedies to suggest?
ETA: According to my endoscopy report, I have a medium-sized hiatus hernia in my stomach.
