Mercury Toxicity?

22 April 2014 - 04:52 PM

Hey guys! I have not been on the forum in forever! I was diagnosed with Celiac in March 2013. I was feeling better for a while with the gluten-free diet. However, now I have all kinds of crazy symptoms despite my carefulness to remain gluten-free. My symptoms point to mercury toxicity. A dentist friend of mine who lives in Colorado lead me in this direction. I had my amalgam fillings removed and replaced with composite filling in October 2013. Again, I eventually began to feel better. However, the symptoms came back and are actually worse. I have had to go to ER even because the pain has gotten so severe. I have now decided to put myself through mercury detox under the guidance of my friend (who also suffers from mercury toxicity). I'm just VERY curious as to others' thoughts/opinions...and mainly if anyone else has experienced anything similar to this. I would appreciate ANY help!!! Thank you!!!!!

Well...it's Been A While, But I'm Miserable :(

Okay, so it's been a while since I've been on here...mostly because I have been feeling good until the past couple months...So, here is my story, and I'm hoping someone can help...I was diagnosed via blood work then biopsy in February 2013. I've been gluten free since biopsy...with the exception of accidental glistenings and CC. After approximately 2 months on the diet I began feeling AMAZING! I didn't know what to do with all the new energy! Then, I think I began getting a little too "comfortable". I began eating lots of junk really...chips (that were not listed as gluten-free even though no obvious ingredients indicated gluten), chocolate, candy...JUNK! I was also eating a ton of frozen steamer vegetables, which I later found out that that brand states "they can not guarantee that food was not cooked on same line as wheat products". I eat a LOT of baked potatoes (maybe I have a problem with those??) Anyway...I now have proclaimed to not eat ANYTHING unless it is says gluten-free on ingredients. But I still feel so bad. My energy level is virtually non-existent. And it's worse late afternoon/night but not sure why? My joints just ache so bad and the fog/depression set in at night too...Stomach problems aren't my main issue right now. I just need some strength and for my muscles and joints to feel better. I would love to hear anyone's story and to hear suggestions?? Like vitamins you take and love, etc?? I might add I have a 3 year old, 2 year old and 1 year old...I need a "pick me up".

Need To Vent About My Own Stupidity!

03 May 2013 - 05:45 AM

I'M NOT SURE IF THIS IS THE RIGHT PLACE TO VENT, BUT HERE I GO!!

 

I have been gluten free for almost 3 months and have been feeling better than ever (with the exception of illness from CC a few times).  This morning, I go to the gas station and decide I want beef jerky (the very LARGE bag, just to be clear).  I don't know why I wanted beef jerky for breakfast, but I THOUGHT I had looked up once that it was gluten free!!  Well, in a matter of about 10 minutes I DEVOURED the entire bag!  While at my desk, I start to feel dizzy and weak all of a sudden. I immediately started thinking, "I feel like I've been glutened." So, I grab my empty beef jerky bag and read on the back "CONTAINS WHEAT" in big, BOLD letters!!!  How in the WORLD did I not look for this???  I have not made this kind of mistake since the beginning!!  Of course, now I feel like an idiot since this is COMPLETELY my fault...Just waiting it out to see how severe it gets...and hoping I don't have to leave work!  I can already feel the brain fog and tears coming on as I type.  Hummm...Am I the only one who has ever done this?

 

Yours truly,

 

The Glutened One
