I'll be turning 40 soon and I've always had tummy issues as long as I can remember. After a lifetime of mysterious medical symptoms (joint pain that's not arthritis, unexplained back and neck pain, terrible GI problems, foggy mind, forgetfulness, terrible fatigue....) I finally found information online about Celiac disease. I went straight to a specialist who took me off of gluten and dairy. I tested negative for Celiac but I believe it to be a false result because my symptoms match so exact to what others suffer with, plus many members of my family have the same problems. I believe my grandmother died from complications related to it. (early 1990s))

Since being gluten/dairy free I'm about 80% better. I'm still getting the hang of it. I'm glad I found this message board!!! Reading the posts here have been sooo helpful! <3

I am extremely intolerant to gluten and still tested negative for Celiac disease. If removing gluten is making you better, please stick to it. I've been strictly gluten/dairy/soy free for 16 months and it's bettered my life in so many ways.

Thanks Kwylee and Tira :-) I wish I'd known about a gluten free diet years ago. Being so sick all of those years affected my life in major ways.
