I'm so glad I found this site!

One day I was fine. The next day, I was an absolute mess (gluten reaction, though I didn't know it at the time). And every day after that, I had the same experience. For over two months, every morning, within 5 minutes of getting up, I would start feeling roiling in my stomach and have to head for the bathroom. Ugh! It was awful! And I couldn't figure out what was going on! Some days this went on till noon.

I finally saw my doctor and he did some blood tests (not the Celiac test) and stool tests and everything he tested for was negative. So, as I have done before, I took my health into my own hands and started my internet research. I read all about food intolerance and set about doing some testing on my diet. Lactose, fat, supplements, sugar... I cut them all out of my diet. When none of those helped, I moved on to gluten. The first morning after my first gluten-free day, I thought I noticed alittle improvement. The second day was better and each day got better and better! Woo-hoo! I had found it! After 8 days, I was back to almost normal!

Adding my supplements back in, I discovered that I reacted to Quercetin or Bromelain and I'm just getting over that now. But that's the only problem I've had.

I asked my doc to do a Celiac test and I'm waiting for the results now. I suspect since the onset was SO marked and sudden, that I have Celiac.

Fortunately, my husband wants to go gluten-free, too so there will be no cross contamination here.

I'm a bit overwhelmed with how to deal with this, but I'm learning a little every day and I know I'll learn a lot more here. I'm looking forward to getting to know some of you and pick up on your fantastic insights.

Thanks for reading! :)
