New Symptoms

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I was diagnosed with Celiac a few years ago but have not been strict with my diet. My symptoms have been more or less "silent" until yesterday. The area around my mouth is red, cracked and on fire. My lips feel like they are extremely chapped and nothing will relieve the pain. Could this be a new symptom of being a Celiac?

I know I should follow the diet but it's just SO hard and I don't do well with change AT all. Please help!?

Thank you,

Deb

After several weeks its really not that hard. It takes like 4-6 weeks if you are vigilant and watchful about what you are eating, you will learn to do it.

Not all good things in life are easy. If you want to feel better you need to make some effort.

There's no way around this. You're going to have to follow the diet.

I agree that you absolutely MUST follow the diet. No cheating. Even if you do not feel sick (I didn't feel sick at all from eating gluten) just think of the internal damage this could be causing. You do not want to deal with related illnesses in the future. When I was diagnosed I was shocked but that quickly faded when I realized the gravity of the situation. I am responsible for the health of my body to the best of my ability and want to live a long happy life with my husband. We both need each other. :D

You must take control of the situation - it obviously unfortunately has you under control. It may have to be one meal at a time, then one day at a time, then a week, then a month, until it becomes second nature. You are right - it is not easy but it certainly would be easier to change your diet than to suffer from a dreadful cancer that could possibly have been prevented.

Please, for your own sake and that of your family, stop ingesting the poison that could wreak havoc to your insides! Please also know that we truly are here for you. We may not be able to physically give you a hug, but here is a cyber one for you for this day. :D

Deb try to remember that your more important then the food you SHOULDN'T be eating! Respect & love yourself & the ones that love you enough to make kind decisions in the matter of food. STOP hurting yourself!

And have a nice day ;-)

Thank you ALL so much. I really appreciate the honesty and support! I had a gluten free day today :) I'm going shopping tomorrow so I hope I can find something gluten-free to eat while I'm out.

Thanks again,

Deb
