With two months into gluten free.....

I am now feeling better, slowly. I have been keeping most of my meals where they should be. It still seems that every third day is not so good. After lunch for several hours are bathroom trips. It is slow, but progressive improvements.

It does seem that on those bad days, my hands shake and it is almost impossible to type on the computer. I tend to drop things and basically feel very spastic.

I am not sure whether this is a dehydration issue or not. I have a first cousin with MS and that really scares me.

Could this be a side effect of celiac disease? Anyone out there having the same experience?

Impute would be gratefully accepted.

Ahh , yes, a very familiar symptom when I get contaminated. Let's see, blisters, dry mouth and the shakes, then you don't stray for more than two minutes away from the bathroom. Fog brain and no driving, can't concentrate long enough and we have a fast highway to contend with before we get anywhere. Hate those days! Very careful to avoid them as much as possible.

Shirley:

Glad to talk to you again. I am still not healed, so I don't know whether it is gluten or not. I guess that will take some time. I have only entered a few new things into my diet. Oscar Meyers bacon bits, Oil of Olay vit. (clearly say "gluten free" and Clinique lipstick that I have checked to be gluten-free, Annie Roasted Pepper dressing. Every third day is a not so good one...........but, better than every day. So I guess there is progress here. Mornings are good, I do my run-arounds before lunch, which I have to remind myself to eat, after that not so good. By dinner, I'm fine. I do think that I have to back down on the adult totties. I am sure that will help, but hard to do.

Getting Cold up there?

It has cooled down somewhat, and although we have had a frost or two, it's not yet freezing at night. We do have the beautiful fall colours, and the day time temp is hanging around 60F. :)

I've never seen the Annie Roasted Pepper dressing, but the rest sounds fine to me. Although there is quite often an ingredience difference between the U.S. and Canada. That's unfortunate, as it tends to be confusing, especially if one travels between the two countries often.
