I'm Back

Recommended Posts

I was on a gluten free diet from October of last year until April of this year. I felt really good on it. So good in fact that I (foolishly) thought I didn't need it anymore. That maybe it wasn't gluten intolerance. That my stomach had somehow healed. So I went back to eating wheat. At first I was OK. But, it's been a couple of months now and I'm really paying for it. Acid stomach, stomach pain, bloating, gas, constipation and diarrhea. I went to the Doc yesterday for a check up. After describing to him my symptoms and how I felt on the gluten free diet he said it sounds like I have celiac disease. He told me to get back on the diet. He didn't run any tests because I don't have insurance and I would have had to pay for them myself. Besides he said the fact that I did well on the gluten free diet is confirmation enough. So, I started back on it yesterday and already today I feel much, much better. The acid stomach and stomach pain is gone. It's gonna take a while to get the intestines calmed down but I'm motivated. It's nice to have confirmation from my Doc. My husband is going on it with me because He thinks it'll be easier for me. I have a swell hubby!

Sounds like you have a really understanding doctor who actually listens.

Welcome back!

    Chances are if you have lumps on your body for years and the Dr. isn't concerned they're probably not lymph nodes. Chronically swollen lymph nodes would be something every Dr. would be concerned with.  Chances are you just have cysts ...
    It's different  for everyone, it can be a month or maybe a year. Most probably within a few months. This is assuming the symptoms are in fact related to gluten, which they may not be. 
    Hi Laura I'm so pleased you found answers.  This is very encouraging.  Seven years on from my own diagnosis I wish I could have some vitamin and mineral screening, I'm sure I'm still deficient. Cristiana
