With a reaction like that please use caution with other nightshades, tomatoes, eggplant, and I think peppers also. I hope your over it soon.

I just noticed you are newly soy free, the potato was just a potato right? No soy oil or anything like that? Soy still gets me too often, it seems to be in even more stuff than gluten, if that is even possible. I have yet to find a margerine or butter sub that is soy free. I just use olive oil or risk the casien in butter. I get the same sort of allergic reaction you do with the soy, only it's my intestines that swell, I thought I had a 'lump' of some kind for 2 years till I went soy free. Whoops that turned into a bit of a rant, sorry. You most likely challenged with a plain potato but just in case it was chips or something like that I thought I should mention it.

Hello SickChick,

Sorry to hear you are "sick". I can relate though. I have been sick for, well off and on, mostly on, since May, but the last 2 months or of 2007 were not good for me. I can so relate to the list of foods I can eat, and the list of foods I can't eat. I have a big list I keep modifying as well. Some I have to take off the "can eat" list and put on the "can't eat" list. Gets very frustrating at times.

I just want to say though, that I have experienced that when I am having a bad bout, usually cause I ate glutens (cause I didn't have a diagnosis so I would eat glutens off and on mistakenly), I find that my body rejects everything until whatever is wrong inside heals. Once it heals, and I stay gluten free for a while, like a few weeks or so, then I can start tolerating more (non-gluten foods). It's like you body has to heal first.

Anyways, good luck with that. It is nice to find people who are having the same problems as me :rolleyes:

Hello ravenwoodglass,

I am new here. I don't really want to introduce myself on someone else's thread. I see you have spent a long time getting the Celiac diagnosis. This now gives me hope that maybe I will get a Celiac Diagnosis! LOL. My tests are always negative. Finally, one day I called up the Celiac association, and they said that I have to eat glutens anywhere from 6 weeks to 2 months to get a positive result (I think they mean from the biopsy). Unfortunatelly I can't do that. In the past I have only eaten glutens for a week before the biopsy. Nothing registers.

Anyways, sounds like you have had a long battle. I am back to see the GI on Monday and to get a gastropscopy on Monday. I don't think I will see any positive results for Celiac disease on the biopsy as I am eating gluten free. Too sick otherwise. Just recovering from a very bad bout. I'm finally "eating" again. I am so happy! Anyways, hopefully my GI will consider some rigorous blood testing to try and get a diagnosis. I hope so.

Bye, Genie

I understand sniiiffffffffffff . . . You have my sincere sympathies.

I had to do the same awhile back. This week I realized peppers have the same effect on me. I LOVE fresh red and yellow peppers. I suspect eggplant has the same effect on me too but I haven't tested it out yet.

It totally sucks. Never to taste a french fry again . . .

I just had my kid retested for celiac disease and we are waiting for the results.  Her doctor does not hesitate to test since I have a firm diagnosis.  I can also say that my PCP and GI  never hesitate to check for other AI issues either.  They know that you can develop more than one autoimmune disorder.  Better to catch it early before damage!   If you get an endoscopy, be sure to do a gluten challenge 2 to 4 weeks prior or your result will be negative!
