In Topic: Candidiasis-Anybody?

Hi Christina,

 Thank you SO much for responding. :) I do have a doctor that can help me. I really feel for you guys as it is such a hard thing to deal with. I really wish I found out at 10 though, it would have saved me from so many problems, and so much pain. Good luck to you and your family! <3 

In Topic: New 2 Gluten-Free

16 August 2013 - 10:41 AM

I've been gluten-free for two weeks now(well, I actually fell off the wagon yesterday by having several bites of my husband's takeout). I actually got a really bad cold the day I went gluten-free that lasted for a week, so I actually had a hard time deciphering the cold symptoms from withdrawal symptoms. But looking back, the symptoms that I still have are: headaches, fatigue, bloating, extreme moodiness, brain fog, and sometimes I feel like I have the flu. After the first week of going gluten-free, the wonderful itchy rash came back. It's actually flared up really bad since poisoning myself yesterday.


I definitely am having a harder this time around. I had gone back on gluten for testing-thank God that's over!. We have a bunch of family visiting this summer and it's really hard to feel this way when they are around. I feel so anti-social, and grumpy. And the last thing I feel like explaining or talking about with people right now is food(which is not the norm for me, I love to cook, and talk about and help people with nutrition). I guess I feel very edgy.


From what I've read, and what the previous posters have mentioned...is that it will get better with time. We just gotta hang in there. Good luck with everything New2GF! :)

Ugh, I know the feeling. I've been gluten-free for two weeks now since my endo/colonoscopy....Was SO strong about not eating gluten, until: yesterday! My hubby got some take out....he was like, are you sure you don't want anything? I was like, babe....I CAN'T eat that stuff. You know that, don't ask me. HAH, we got home(I even bought some gluten-free frozen dinners from the store so I could feel like I had my own "take out"), and I was like I want a bite!!!! I don't know how the heck I rationalized that one in my head! 5 to 10 bites, and about 30- 60 mins later: BAD rash! It lasted all night long and still on and off today. :( 


It's slip ups like these that make me stronger for the next temptation-knowing the horrible consequences. But, as another poster mentioned, I know with time it does get easier. 

In Topic: Endo/colonoscopy Done

Hi Belle, thank you...and me too! Im glad there doesn't seem to be anything else going on. Total peace of mind after months of worry. I'll post the biopsy results as soon as I get them- I'm very curious. The doc also suggested the Fodmop diet to see if maybe those foods are causing problems for me if it's not Celiac. For now though, I'm just going to stick with what I'm doing. Very clean, wholesome food eating. If I still seem to be having problems down the line, then I'll try Fodmop elimination diet. 

In Topic: Endoscopy And Colonoscopy Tomorrow

01 August 2013 - 09:29 PM

blckchr8, I hope you find out soon! Im curious as to how long the biopsy report will take to come back myself. Tomorrow is my endo/colonoscopy, and as Im sitting here, drinking this awful gallon of prep stuff :( , I too have done this to get the final check to see if it could be Celiac. But, Im SOOO happy I can finally go gluten-free tomorrow, and be back on track with starting to feel better. And know that, I did all the tests, and don't have to have the what if's in the back of my head driving me bonkers.


Like whitepine said, if you know the diet works for you and makes you feel better, than stick with it. :)


However, I do have a question...can you eat what ever you want after? Or are there restrictions because of the biopsies.
