Topics I've Started

Store Bought Frozen Yogurt

05 March 2013 - 06:40 PM

Hi all, I searched through the threads here but couldn't find a topic on this already. There was one about TCBY store but I'm wanting to know about store bought brands. Can anyone tell me which brands of frozen yogurt (at the store) are gluten free? Thanks! :)


Hello - New Here

09 February 2013 - 09:01 AM

Hi all, I keep landing on these forums when seaching gluten questions online. :) I've found a lot of useful info on here and decided to join. I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia awhile back, but I didn't feel I had it. I didn't have any of the tender points and I think after a year of testing for every thing else, it was a blanket diagnosis. Yes, I have all the symptoms, but after a year's worth of research, I understand fibro to be a symptom itself, mostly for deficiencies in the body it seems. So I acknowledged that I do have the symptom of fibro, tried all the drugs they prescribed, none worked and in fact made me feel worse, so weaned off them, now trying to find natural ways to heal myself.

I stumbled upon the gluten free remedy while researching esophagael issues that I was exeriencing due to esophagitis and a hiatal hernia. I was in pain in my chest for over a year with bad spasms that came about every five minutes, no meds worked for it, no antacids, nothing. I stopped eating the trigger foods and was living on chicken noodle soup and saltine crackers not realizing that was making it worse. Somehow I came across cutting out gluten for stomach and esophagael issues even though my stomach felt fine. After an endosopy I discovered the hiatal hernia, esophagitis, and mild gastritis. I decided to cut gluten out. 2 days after no gluten, the pain in my chest went away completely. I was so amazed but was scared to be happy about it, afraid I was going to jinx myself!

I don't think I have celiac disease but I think I'm gluten intolerant. After no gluten, my memory is better, no more brain fog, I have more energy, I exercise more, I've lost weight. However, I still do get pain in my arms and all joints, but not in my chest thank goodness. I am about to try vitamin D, but I have a blood test coming up for that and I want to know if I'm low on it before I begin taking it so that I'll know if it has been contributing to my overall pain. I have arthritis in my neck, so it may just be arthritis in my joints as well, it runs in my family.

Logically, I think gluten was causing my esophagael issues. Why do I belive this? - Because I purposely ate something with gluten in it a few days ago and my chest pain came roaring back. It took me two days to feel better after that with no gluten again. I felt HORRIBLE. It took two days to get out of my system and to feel better again.

Has anyone been diagnosed with fibromyalgia here and then felt better after no gluten?
