    Do you have questions about celiac disease or the gluten-free diet?


Whoohoo! I've Been Pain Free For 3 Days

Recommended Posts

I have been really really careful with my diet. I've given away my gluten flours. Eating very very simply right now, fruit, vegies and a protein. I still have headaches and muscle ache but my stomach is settled down and no longer bloated. I'm taking that as a positve sign that I am on the right track to feeling better. I have to do all this slowly as I still have very limited energy. Today I'm scrubbing the outside of all my glutenfree flour, rice and sugar containers. Tomorrow I'll tackle one of my cupboards.

Once I get to the point that I feel I can add gluten free bread and pasta to my diet I will go out and get a new toaster.

I'm training the hubby and kids regarding cleaning up after they prepare there sandwiches ( I'm laundering dish clothes and dish towels at a amazing rate).

I'm finally starting to feel like I'm getting somewhere.

Wonderful news! It took a month or two for my other pain to resolve and hopefully you will also get some relief. I'll never forget the first time I ran up the stairs about 2 months after I started the diet. I didn't even realize I did it till I got to the top. My DD found me crying at the top step. Just a couple months before that I couldn't even walk without canes, let alone run. I hope you continue to improve at the same rate.

Make sure you use rubber gloves and I might even get a dust mask for that deglutening. I am so happy that you are making progess and that you shared it with us. It does help folks who are new and questioning to hear about the good progress as well as the little set backs we all deal with.

Good idea. I have a box of gloves in the cupboard. I'll have to see if my hubby has a dust mask in his workshop. I have a nursing friend, I think I'll ask her if she can bring a few home for me. I know the hospital will have them because I used to have to wear them when I worked with certain bacteria and when I went into an AIDS patients room (I am a lab technologist, although I haven't worked as one for the last 12 years since my triplets were born).

After all the great advice, from the wonderfully helpful people on this forum, I feel less overwhelmed about what I need to do to make my house safe for my health.

I'm looking forward to having my other symptoms resolve. I'll be curious to see if my fibromyalgia resolves or not. When I first went wheat free (didn't know I was celiac but knew I couldn't eat wheat) my fibro symptoms reduced by 50% (less pain, less fatigue and way less brain fog. I still get sciatic flareups but they are way less frequent than at the beginning where I had a flareup that lasted 3 years).
