What Symptoms Did You Not Even Realize Were Symptoms?

Recommended Posts

Did anyone ever experience red burning blood shot eyes? I wake up in the morning and my eyes hurt to open and are red and bloodshot. Went to the eye doctor and he did a complete exam and found nothing. Gave me some eye drops for allergies which did not do a thing. I am hoping that being off gluten will help my eyes. As a newbie here, thanks for all the great info.

I knew my stomach was killing me all the time, but until I went gluten free/casein free I did not realize that it affected my fertility, arthritis, chronic fatigue, cavities, nerve pain, dry skin, moods (rage right before my period), general confusion, lack of motivation, anxiety...I know I'm forgetting some things. This diet has over the past two years become very easy to maintain and thrive on (took several months) and I find it's so much easier to forage for organic whole foods and prepare every meal than try and muddle through life at 60%. That's no way to live.

YES!! My dry eyes were terrible before going gluten-free! I would also get random attacks of episcleritis (red, burning eye that looks like pink eye without the goop). I had to use steriod drops in my eye. Since going gluten-free, I haven't had one attack, and my eyes are not dry and gritty. It's high allergy season here, too, and my eyes feel great!

I wouldn't be suprised if you have the same positive results! :D

Besides the digestive stuff, and neuro stuff (brain fog, balance problems) that you commonly see listed, I finally stopped being thirsty all the time (I wanted to drink water non-stop, it was an effort to keep myself below 4 litres a day and if the doctor hadn't read me the riot act, I'd have continued to drink 5-6 litres); my ears stopped feeling so blocked and gunky) and my ankles stopped hurting when I got out of bed in the morning. Oh and I lost the puffy bags under my eyes.
