Sadly my nerve pain has gone back to where it was 9 months ago. With really slight numbness in my left toe. Since quitting gluten I haven’t felt the numbing of my toe. I’m getting a food intolerance test next Thursday. My diet is so strict I don’t know where I’m going wrong. But something is definitely affecting my nerves, not as bad as gluten does but it definitely affects them. I’m hoping it’s just a setback. Feel like I’m so close but so far away. 

My nerve issues come back with that slightly numbness with even the tiniest amount of CC, a whole foods diet makes it happen less often, and screening products I use seeing if they use shared facilities or if the company handles oats or gluten in ANY other product (bit of paranoia) I found a few other things.
Tiny microexposures (as I call them, not enough to flare gut issues but cause slight numbness) I have linked with heading to the grocery store (inhaled flour from that open aired bakery?) or not washing produce from said grocery store. Few times a shared facility issue, or a case of me not washing my hands before taking meds, mints, gum, etc.

The intolerance testing things are a bit wonky and not always accurate or used to be anyway. I went through all that stuff years ago and it was a waste of money. The list was hit and miss and I got a better idea by keeping a food diary and rotating foods off for a week then trying 1  day off for a few days and recording the issues. Takes forever but way more accurate. Go down to eating 2-3 foods only no spices, seasonings etc. the  do the changing 1 out or adding 1 in for a day. Lot less guessing.

Have you ever had an MRI?  How is your spine?  A compression fracture can cause traveling nerve pain (like sciatica).  I had lots of numbness due to compression fractures (osteoporosis) due to undiagnosed celiac disease.  My pain and numbness eventually went away but can reappear when I use my back incorrectly.

    Hi! I’ll try to keep this short and sweet. 😏 We are currently testing our 3 year old for celiac.  My main questions are about which tests were run and which are missing from the full celiac panel.  From what I understand, the full celiac ...
    Mistakes can set you back.  Remember, celiac disease is an autoimmune response.  Once triggered, it can go off for days, weeks or months.  Like my family member who has MS.  She would have severe flares that would last for six weeks or mor...
    Apart from a couple of mistakes I’ve been gluten free for a month now.  I still have issues with digestion.  Pain in my abdomen (like there is a blockage ) if I eat a big meal.  Small meals are fine, and I still get excessive wind and nause...
