Topics I've Started

Coffee

22 March 2013 - 05:51 AM

Black coffee = wide awake and alert morning

Coffee with creamer = tired, groggy, and a headache


Anyone else notice these symptoms? I always thought coffee just didnt do anything to me. I used to even drink coffee and go to sleep at night, but I'm pretty sure it was just dairy! It must be a pretty strong reaction to overcome coffee.

I feel like I've discovered coffee for the first time haha.

Biocard Tests - Is That A Line? Faint Faint Faint Line

19 March 2013 - 08:47 PM

I received the biocard home kit tests today. The first test looked like a negative, but then I looked closer and there is the faintest line that is barely distinguishable. I tested myself again and the second one came up negative, but that might have been because there was more blood in the sample (i didnt follow the directions exactly on this one) and it may have made it harder to see the line. 

 

Nothing conclusive at all. I also ordered the enterolab stool test and received that yesterday and will have those results within 3 weeks. 

 

 


Lactose Intolerance After Gluten Free

16 March 2013 - 04:56 AM

How many of you had lactose intolerance kick up after going gluten free? Does anyone know the medical answer to why this happens? Is it indicative of a gluten sensitivity or celiacs disease if other food allergies start after going gluten free?

Genesure

Has anyone used the product called "Genesure"? It's supposedly 99% accurate and tests your DNA via cheek swab for celiacs disease.

What Ails Me?

08 March 2013 - 11:32 PM

I've been perusing these forums for quite some time now and finally mustered up the courage to post. I'm just wondering if you guys think this would sound like celiac's disease or potentially something else.

 

Symptoms that I think are all possibly connected together started about 8 years ago with a random onset of Dermatographic urticaria (skin writing). It came for about 2 years and then suddenly stopped (i'm apart of the lucky 5% where it goes away). About the same time period when the DU stopped, I started having messy BM's which were pretty bad for about 4 years, and somehow I have managed to improve that over the years by eating more healthy in general, but it still remains today. Then about 3 years ago Post nasal drip started one day and never went away. It's extremely annoying and I believe it's my body telling me something is wrong. Due to stress and PND my throat gets very tight sometimes and even my voice gets higher because of it. It becomes very cumbersome to speak. I am a 25 year old male, and I also suffer from hair loss and acne that is always on the verge of breaking out even though I take really good care of my face. My doctor diagnosed me with ADHD. I have brainfog that is difficult to overcome, and a lethargic way of thinking. For example, when it comes to checking my to do list, even the easiest things get put off.

 

I've had a colonoscopy about 3 years ago looking for any kind of damage, but none was found. They did not perform an endoscopy. 

 

I've been gluten free for 3 days. I do not know if it is a placebo effect or not, but I feel a little bit healthier and think a little bit clearer. It has been easier for me to communicate with other people. I have social anxiety, but that has subsided a liiittle bit. The post nasal drip is still there, but it feels like it miiiiiight have thinned about a liiiiittle by a fraction, or at least changed somehow. I still have to swallow just as much though. 

 

I was hoping the post nasal drip would go away within a few days. Does anyone have experience with this? How long did it take for yours to go away? And if this isn't Celiacs, what do you think it could be? I know we are not doctors on this forum, but I am hoping your personal experience can help me out. Any help is much appreciated.
