I just threw in the towel 2 days early on the gluten challenge because of pain and swelling in my legs - called the doctor to ask if I should stop and he said yes, and to get the blood test done today.
Melissa my experience of eating gluten after a seven year break was that the cravings I used to experience came back full force and I found it very hard not to overdo it, even knowing how physically and mentally uncomfortable it was making me. Physically I think I will recover fast but psychologically I feel I was playing with fire.
If I am considered for a gut biopsy after my blood results I will not be eating gluten again in advance of it - I can't go through that again. My body is very upset with me.
