Anyone Have Chiari Malformation And Does It Flare When You Get Glutened?

17 May 2014 - 09:19 AM

I was diagnosed with Chiari Malformation in Nov/Dec 2013. The symptoms went away for the most part. I avoided anything that caused symptoms to increase for weeks (no lifting, bending up and down, increased heart rate, etc) and then slowing was able to do more without issues.
I got glutened a few weeks ago and as I was feeling better from being glutened my Chiari symptoms started acting up and are getting worse.
Trying to figure out if gluten caused my Chiari to flare up and hope it will calm down again like it did the first time. Or if I need to start looking into treatment for Chiari.

Trying To Plan Vacation, Need Help With Meal Ideas While Traveling.

20 April 2014 - 06:12 AM

Going to be gone 7-9 days. Driving, have 2 teenagers and a husband. Kind of just winging most of our vacation, no set nights in set towns so have no idea where we'll say or what will be around. Will be site seeing, 1 day of hiking a mountain, 1 day floating down a river, other days walking trails, maybe a couple days in Vegas. The rest depends on what we come across. I'm the only one gluten free but I'm so sensitive, my house is gluten free.
Thinking of taking a portable grill and a hot plate thing or electric skillet. They will eat out sometimes (I'll take my own food into the restaurant).

Looking for suggestion or tips from anyone who's done this. I can't stand any type dried fruit so most bars, trail mixes and go picnics are out. No sea food so canned tuns is also out. And to top it off, hubby is dairy free.

Only gone on over night trips since going gluten free, this is going to take some planning.

Thanks in advance for any tips or suggestions.
