Thanks for the welcome. I have never been in a forum before. I am clueless as to how this works.

Kindly show me the ropes so I know how to start a new thread.

I work in technology but am dreadfully un-informed when its come to social media. I'm not even on Facbook. I know hard to beleive there are still some prople not using it.

My name is Lori. I am 53 and just started gluten free in December of this year. I live in NJ. And I seem to be sensitive to everything under the sun.



Lsher102, Your post kind of got lost in this thread. You should start a new thread and introduce yourself. Tell us how long you've been gluten-free. It could be that you are still healing. A lot of us go through that "honeymoon period" where we start to feel great, only to have setbacks later. Some of us develop other intolerances. Some of us just take a lot of time to heal and feel better. Let's talk about it in a new thread. :)


Oh, and welcome to the forum!

In Topic: Kissing...does This Happen To Anyone Else?

No you are not alone. My hsuband of 33 years mostly can only kiss me on the cheek if he has eaten gluten. Which he does everyday.

Sadly even if your partner brushes teeth and uses mouthwash a night of romance will make you sick.

It is very annoying!!

It's so annoying! When I go on a date and/or kiss someone who has ingested gluten (even if they drank beer), my lips end up getting horribly chapped, dry, crack, peel and get canker soars for weeks! Does this happen to anyone else, or am I alone on this one?

This sounds very familiar. After a lifetime of digestive problems my doctor decided to have me try gluten free.

I had a negative biopsy but he asked me to give it a try.

I felt amazing 4-5 days later. No stomach issues, no bloating and energy like I have never known.

Then I started to have setbacks. I began to notice if I ate yeast I felt bad. Then dairy seemd to be a trigger.

My symptoms have returned despite still being gluten free. Next I eliminated all processed foods and grains from my diet. No improvement.

Currently, I eat nothing but fruit, vegtables and meats. No dyes, fillers, sauces or gravy. I make my own salad dressing now. I even tried organic meats in an attempt to eat only grass fed. Nothing is helping.

Changed all personal products and makeup to gluten free products. The new makeup has helped with a constant issue with watery eyes. All my makup was Almay because it hypoallergenic but it wasn't gluten free.

Are there others out there like me that experienced relief then had the symptoms return and are unable to get relief? Or is it just me?
