  1. Hi, THE BEST is Pamela's mixes. OH MY GOSH, the chocolate cake is the best! The whole family loved the cake, you could not even tell it was gluten-free. I used her bread pizza mix last night and made great pizza. I tried Good Pantry and it's just OK in my book. I also have Pamela's pancake mix too. YUMMY! Good luck. Hi, try Pamela's pie crust mix. My mom made me a pie for thanksgiving and it was good crust. It makes two pies. Worth the 4.50 a bag.
  2. HI--- I have noticed no more sick to my tummy all day long less bloated diarrhea no more-used to always after I ate Gluten However, my joint, back and headaches have increased since I have gone gluten-free I never had headaches. Not sure what to do about that and also I am having major leg cramps. If you know please advise, thanks Valerie
  3. You should be a doctor, great message. Thank you. I am one that has very many of all the symptoms you named and I just found out 2 months ago that I have Celiac disease. I have had the pain and skin problems for years. Boy, I am sure glad I found a good GI doctor to get me on this gluten-free diet. Howevever, I have more headaches and leg cramps more than I ever have in my life time. What could that be? Valerie
  4. Alcohol

    WINE, red wine and more wine!!!!!!!!!!!! I know whisky has gluten in it if that is what Crown Royal is. I drink wine! Good luck, Val
  5. Hi All; I am only 2 months in to this gluten-free. My Mom found Pamela's cake mix for my birthday and boy is it great!!!! My whole family thought it was the best ever. I have now tried her pancake mix and it is awesome. I am sure many of you have tried this line, but for us new to this disease I thought I would share. YUMMY!!! Take good care and now Merry Christmas! Valerie
  6. I have had fibromayliga since 1994, after a bodybuilding competition. I blew it off, I have had so many health issues happen since then too. Now 2 months ago I find out I have celiac disease and it ties in. However, after reading everyone's replies I can't say the Gluten Free diet has helped my FM problem. In fact I have noticed it back after all these years. The headaches and pain in my joints have increased since I have gone gluten-free. I plan on seeing a new doctor for the pain and hopefully he can shed some light on all this. I have never had such headaches or leg cramps. I think it is this diet. Oh well, it amazes me how many people have my symptoms after all these years it is nice to know. Thanks!

  8. Coffee

    Hi, I can no longer drink any coffee, it makes me very sick. I just drink hot tea now. I am not sure if I would even chance the mixes. Good luck.
  9. Hi, I was told years ago I had fibromyalgia and IBS. I did a bodybuilding competion and afterwards started coming down with so many health issues. I was 29 then, I blew it all off. I also had to have 3 major spine surgries-not because of the bodybuilding. Well, here I am now 42 and just found out over a month ago I have Celiac Sprue. I had been throwing up, all the other nice things with this diease since April of 2006. I did find a great doctor when I finally decided to go to onw. I could not handle the pain in my stomache and sickness anymore. I too am having very painful joints, lower back pain that leads in to my legs. I hurt all over. The strange thing is I was doing OK pain wise with fibromyalgia symptons until I started on this diet. It is so nice to read all this information. I am getting in to another doctor soon and hopefully find some relief. Thanks for all of your help. Valerie

  12. Save Me!

    I had on halloween a butterfinger mini and reese's mini peanut butter cups. I felt awful the next day. Major cramps and bloating. Are you sure they are Gluten Free?
  13. Flair Ups

    I have only know for a month that I have this disease. I have had it for along time due to all the symptons though. I have been so strict on this diet and YES I am too having some bad flare ups!!! I think it is due to time and healing. Not only that if you have much stress in your life like I am right now it will make you feel like crap! Get to feeling better! I have only know for a month that I have this disease.
