In Topic: Migraines, Sinuses And Gluten... Help?

14 May 2009 - 02:42 PM

Does anyone get optical migraines? Just the eye syptoms of the migraine and not the head pain?

Is anyone else in Jersey? I keep looking in all the store I go to and the only Chex I am finding gluten free are the Rice Chex which are good but do get soggy quicker that the corn.

In Topic: What Are Your "glutened" Symptoms?

19 April 2009 - 02:34 PM

My fairly immediate (within 30 minutes) symptoms are SEVERE brain fog with auras and headaches, pretty bad lethargy. After a few hours, the brain fog fades, but the headaches and flu-ish symptoms really come into play - the Big D. My skin tingles like I have a fever. Throat hurts, head continues pounding. Next day, the DH starts on my thumbs, forefinger and middle finger on my hands. Not the rest of the fingers. Usually symptoms last 3 - 5 days depending on the severity.

Now that I'm truly gluten-free, I feel like I can "see" my reactions a little better than before.



Hi, when you say, "auras" what are you referring to? For about a year now, more so now than ever, I have been getting this wavy vision in the corner of my eyes. It comes on suddenly and last for up to 10 minutes during which I feel completely wiped out. Sometimes it even come on like a whole in my vision. I went to the doctor and they said optical migrains. My son is a Celiac as well as my dad so I obviously carry the gene although I test negative on the celiac panel. I also have severe gas and bloating, moderate stomach aches, and constipation. I am starting to think I should be gluten free.

Thank you for the info. We live in Roselle Park, about 5 minutes down the parkway from Clark. I am so excited. My non Celiac son just asked me tonight if we are ever going to order pizza again. I told him probably not since it is unfair to his brother. We have traveled very far in the past to find pizza places that serve gluten free pizza.

In Topic: Blood Test Negative

17 April 2009 - 03:52 AM

I am waiting on the results of my Celiac panel right now. My son has celiac and so does my father so I obviously carry the gene. I have some syptoms such as gas, bloating, constipation, and stomach pain after meals. The doctor was questioning why I even wanted to be tested as he thought with my family history and symptoms, going gluten free was the best choice. I insisted on the test and he said, "ok, but if it comes out negative, I still think you should follow a gluten free diet." Even some doctors don't put a lot of stock into the tests.
