im forced to buy garbage food from convenience stores at times. Johnsonville brats and Freetos are usually safe for me, but if they have any beer brats on the rollers i wont even consider it in fear of cross contamination

This is the answer to part of your issues.  Until you are healed avoid eating stuff off 'rollers' (this needs to be avoided forever) and from restaurants and others homes. Stay prepared with for sure gluten-free stuff you bring from home. You will heal much faster. You likely are glutening yourself often off things you may think are safe.

Do read the Newbie thread at the top of the Coping section it will help you a great deal.

You know what absolutely kills me?  Fresh fruit and veg.  I tried eating more fruits and veggies, but the result was diarrhea every couple of days.  I eventually had to cut back because I was tired of feeling terrible.  

 

My point is just that you can think you're being "good" and "healthy" but your body doesn't always think so.  I used to eat (plain, scrambled, no additives, just egg) eggs every morning too, but since I stopped eating those my heartburn has almost gone away.  

 

I've come to the conclusion that bodies are stupid.  Stop eating gluten and they'll find something else to start hating.  Eggs, cranberries, whatever.

I have been wanting to get on probiotics, but also seem to have problems with the ones ive tried. I'm assuming its from whatever the fruits were sprayed with. Im really not sure of all of the causes, bit i only seem to be healthy when i eat only plants from my garden. A true paleo diet seems best for me, but with the demands of society, im forced to buy garbage food from convenience stores at times. Johnsonville brats and Freetos are usually safe for me, but if they have any beer brats on the rollers i wont even consider it in fear of cross contamination

Recent reports that many probiotics labeled gluten free may not actually be.  I don't recall names but you can probably google it - it was in the news over the last month.  Really frightening how many people were likely harmed by this.

And as for the brats on the rollers, you can't know what else has been there, how they clean - even if there's no beer brats on there now, how do you know they weren't recently?  The only place I can imagine buying dogs off the rollers is a place I know that only uses gluten-free hot dogs.

so, this hasn't went away and right now im extremely sick. I have been very careful with what I'm eating, but today im having a full blown celiac reaction. I know have not consumed anything with gluten. Yesterday i had martha whites gluten free biscuits and gravy for breakfast, a salad for lunch, and i skipped dinner because my guts were hurting. The only thing i can think off that may have caused this is old orchard gluten free Apple blueberry juice. It seems that any time i try a fruit juice, i get really sick. This has been going on almost 2 months now and i keep getting sicker. I'm really not sure what is causing this, but I'm guessing its the juice. It seems like anything that has been sprayed with herbicides or pesticides is making me extremely sick. I'm thinking about going in for the blood tests because the dh rash is back and everything. My antibodies are all out attacking me right now. The problem is that im too sick to even leave the house right now. I feel like im going to die. I just want to get healthy again.  :-(

Until you feel better, consider giving up all processed foods.  That includes juice and the biscuits!    Eat naturally gluten free foods.  You might have a fruit intolerance too. So focus on meats, fish and veggies for a few weeks.

Naturally gluten-free can be cheap.  Eat rice, chicken, pork, fish, eggs, ground beef, veggies, and fruit.   Shop the sales.  Stock up, cook and freeze.  Select seasonal foods.   You can get a lot of rice compared to what you paid for that gluten-free biscuit mix.  Compare Walmart's 20 pound bag of rice to your two boxes of biscuit mix.  You can get 202 servings, but let's bump up the portion side.  So, for a blob of rice on your plate (approx 1 cup cooked) that will cost you less than 10 cents!

Beans and rice.  That was our staple when times were tough.  Just sort and cook those beans from scratch!  

You can do it.  Just takes a little planning.  ?

A stomach virus, aspartame, food poisioning  and capers all give me the same intestinal issues as gluten.  

aspartame gives me a horrible reaction - makes me hyper (actually, all artificial sweeteners do)  - i am also careful not to overdo it with the raw veggies/fruits and there are not many juices that aren't too acidic for me.  try keeping a food journal - you may think you remember everything you have eaten all day, but i was surprised ("o, yeah, i forgot i had a bite of whatever.  and i had that yesterday, too.  maybe i should try not eating that tomorrow and see if that's it....")  it made it easier to figure out even if it wasn't gluten.  hope you feel better. :)

Funny you should mention that issue with the sweeteners, acesulfame potassium, aspartame, saccharin, some forms of pure erythritol all turn me into Mr. Hyde. I straight up get angry and start snapping and breaking stuff. While I am fine with stevia, Sucrose, monk fruit, xylitol, and 1 brand of erythritol. Real sugars tend to make me bloat and cramp if I even a moderate amount. >.> and I am allergic to corn so corn syrups out of the picture.

Reactions to sweeteners are common, whether you have celiac disease or not. The intolerances can be identified by an elimination diet . Exclude them all for a week. If symptoms disappear, then carefully try introducing one at a time, and observe the results. You will know which ones to avoid, but it will take time and patience to figure it all out.
