gluten-free For 2 Years And Sick Again

Recommended Posts

I've been gluten-free for 2 years and was doing very good. My only flare up was when we evacuated for Katrina in Aug. That was understandable. But now I have been sick for 3 days and I don't know what's caused it. So far no diarrehea, but bloating big time and chills (no fever). I have developed a nasty NON itchy rash on my legs. that my Dr. just looked at and said dry skin! I have had numbness and tingling in my legs and arms for 2 years (diagnosed as nerve damage from celiac disease). I'm afraid these may be signs of diabetes. I've lost a lot of faith in doctors. Has anyone gone through something similar?

I have racked my brain. The only thing new is cottage cheese, which I was assured gluten-free. I stopped eating it 2 days ago. just in case. I was wondering (sounds crazy) if certain pollen could carry gluten. We are having a lot of willow seeds and stuff floating around. Thanks Carrie for responding

keep in mind that products that you've always used and know to be safe MAY all of a sudden change their ingredients and now contain gluten. So, I try to make it a habit to always read labels every single time, even if I've used the product a hundred times already. Just recently it was a brand of taquitos that I've eaten with no problems in the past, and was just getting ready to say "ok" when I remembere to read the label, sure enough, wheat was one of the ingredients... and it said "contains wheat ingredients" on the bottom... I can't remember what brand, but I've had them before with no probs at all after finding them on a gluten-free list somewhere.
