Good to have you back Lister:

It sounds to me that you have the flu.

Let me suggest something that will help you feel better, but if it is the flu, it has to run it's coarse.

Get your girlfriend to get you some Dimetapp PM, or Dimetapp-Flu. It may make you feel more comfortable. (gluten free as well)

Sometimes, when we get sick we blame everything on celiac. We are subject to all the "bugs" out there as well as other people, and perhaps more.

I hope that you feel better soon.

Could be a sinus infection.


Tapioca intolerant

First cousin dx'd with Celiac Disease

Grandmother died of malnutrition b/c everything made her sick... sounds like celiac to me.

Gluten-free since June 2005

Dx with IBS February 2005

Blood tests both negative (or inconclusive?) for celiac (in 2002 and 2004)

Dimetapp will help those symptoms as well. It has been a staple in my house when my girls were growing up.

Hope you get a good night sleep and feel better in the morning.

I can't answer that question, but I do know that it is gluten free. Perhaps you should call you dr. in the morning and get a recommendation.

You might want to check out www.glutenfreedrugs.com.

I had a nasty cold recently and I took something called Old Indian Cherry Bark Syrup. It was really helpful. I also resorted to Tylenol Cold a couple times. I'm highly sensitive to gluten and dairy and I get stomach aches from nearly all medication but it never gave me a stomach ache. I didn't do anything to verify it's gluten-free/df status though beyond reading the box.

As something safe that might help your throat, you might want to try peppermint tea with honey.

Other than that (and I'm hesitant to give this advice), your best bet in terms of a medication might be to pick one from the gluten free drugs website and then read the ingredients carefully for dairy or anything else you might not want in your body.
