Celiac.com 08/24/2018 - Last year was our first gluten-free Halloween and my older son, James (now in 5th grade) got really upset when he realized that he wouldn’t be able to eat a lot of the candy from trick or treat night. He was saying he didn’t want to trick or treat and for awhile wouldn’t pick out a costume. (Prior to this, he loved dressing up and trick-or-treating.)
We solved this problem by having an unsafe candy auction for both of our boys, at the end of the evening. I went out and bought individual candies that I knew they liked...

Just a suggestion: I've had a pain like that under my jaw and down my shoulder on the left side. It was constant. I went to an ear, nose and throat specialist and found it was a blocked saliva gland! The dr. was able to remove it manually. It was a tiny crystal-like block that had plugged the gland. The dr. told me to suck on a lemon or drink plain lemon juice to keep it unplugged and to drink more water. I thought perhaps my experience might help you.
OMG the poor dear! Thankfully your daughter has great parents.
I am happy to hear you laugh about this now I am also glad your daughter was diagnosed early.
Thanks for your story. If I don't laugh at some celiac related things I am afraid that I will become a curmudgeon ! It is such a frustrating disease to have, always explaining, educating, not being taken seriously, being in pain, so many symptoms etc etc.
Have a great evening/day de...
