    • Thank you for your reply.  I did make sure to keep eating gluten before getting tested. I'm still unsure whether or not I should ask my doctor to run the rest of the tests in the celiac panel.  
    • LOL, re: trousers vs. pants.   Here in the US, trousers are a specific kind of pants/slacks, with a looser fit and often with pleats in the front.   I also read that Vit D helps digestion;  can't recall the links, but likely within Gundry's writings about lectin.   My Dr. just told me to resume 2000 IU per day, and I do think it's made a slight difference. Have also read that bone broth is helpful, its gelatinous nature supposedly coats the stomach.   I know bone broth has not been formally studied much, but again, probably can't hurt and might help.
    • I'd try the gluten free diet for a few months to see if that helps at all. Can't hurt. If it doesn't help I'd try a low FODMAP meat and veggies diet.
    • A good amount of the neurological effects from celiac are also related to nutrient deficiencies caused by malabsorbtion from damaged intestines and the fact that most gluten-free foods are not fortified and your net eating many grains. You sound good about the CC and everything and seem to be taking percations goods, I still use freezer paper for a clean safe work surface even in my gluten free home lol. Anyway top things to look for and consider are magnesium and B vitamin deficiencies . I take my in a drink to avoid pills and the sublingual forms are more easily absorbed by the body. I normally suggest 2 brand or forms of magnesium and you need to find the one that works for you there. They are Natural Vitality Calm, a magnesium citrate in a powder, you add it to a warm drink let it fizz and drink it. Magnesium citrate can be a bit harsh on some peoples guts, I suggest you start off with 1/4 tsp and work your way up to the full dose over a week, if you get D then your taking too much and need to back down or the citrate version might be too rough for you. In which case I suggest Doctors Best, bit more off tasting and mixes best with a juice but with the powdered form of it you do not have to worry about digestion issues, I just found the citrate to seem to help with my nerve issues more. B Vitamins, I take Liquid Health Stress & Energy and the Neurological Support, I take 1 tbsp of each 2-3 times a day before meals. Really helps with everything and being in liquid forms I just add to tea and drink it. There are many other vitamins to look into and we each have ones we have issues with more then others, getting tested might help, NOTE magnesium and B vitamins sometimes show normal but you will still find you need supplementation...bit of a odd thing I found. Yeah the neurological effects are  huge thing with me as my issues with this disease cause my immune system to attack my nervous system and brain....accumulated brain and nerve damage over the years. Had a whole mental trauma issues with them, my gastro issues back then were mostly just constipation. NOW days I get the Vomiting, D, gas, bloat, and then constipation for a week along with neurological issues which NOW if I get exposed to eating straight gluten (happened twice in 3 years to this extent) I loose motor control and collapse unable to move, normally while vomiting violently to the point of blood coming up (this was what happened last June 2016 after eating out).  
    • Started thinking the only cereal I allow in my house is Vans, they have a cinnamon one that is like a captain crunch with cinnamon, and a strawberry O type that I keep in stock for a friend that comes over sometimes and for my cousins littler girls who I end up babysitting sometimes. There was a coconut flake (corn flake knock) off I used to eat, but the company discontued it. There is a stuff called progranola from julians bakery made without grains that looks great but is a bit expensive at $9 a bag.
