  1. Hi Missy ... so sorry to hear about what you are going through. I would like to chime in on the candida problem and maybe offer my thoughts. Candida can take on a life of its own and has a whole host of tummy (and other) symptoms that can be somewhat similar to celiac. Antibiotics are definitely no help for candida and cause candida to flourish. I had a really bad case of candida a couple of years back and it seemed like I would cycle through diahhrea and constipation in the same day (the same hour sometimes) with all kinds of other "fun" symptoms. I cut out all sugared foods (pop cookies etc.) and milk. I then started taking acidophilus religiously before I went to bed and during the day. I always bought acidophilus from GNC as I always like their quality and I usually took more (sometimes 2x/3x) than what was recommended. It took a few months but it cleared up incredibly well and I no longer have the bad symptoms that I had back then. I continued to take acidophilis for a couple of years after.

  3. Achey Joints For Days

    Do you eat many sugary foods? If I eat anything with sugar I get achy joints and have a hard time getting out of bed the next day. I've cut out pretty much everything, candy bars, sugared pop etc. That has worked for me.
  4. Is It Possible

    Caraline ... I believe that there would have to be some reaction from breathing in flour and you would almost certainly be breathing in minute particles at some point in in the workday.

    Thanks noglue, I have been taking acidophilus for years. I don't think many people realize the power of something as simple as a probiotic. You do have to be consistent when taking them though and I always take them just before I go to bed, which has always seemed to work best. I haven't been able to tolerate them well lately though and I have tried many different brands.

    Thank you everyone, you folks are all very helpful . I am happy to say that it seems to have cleared up on it's own. It might have just been a short term fluke One thing is for sure though, after a month of being gluten-free I am starting to get my focus back in a way that I was not expecting. I have been having some pretty strong junk food cravings and have been eating a box of the "Enjoy life" cookies every day to help get me through. Once again, thank you all ... you have been very helpful.

    Thank you for the information NoGlu... that's something that I hadn't thought about.
  8. Leaky Shwanz

    I don't think it could be dairy because I have cut out dairy for the most part.
  9. Leaky Shwanz

    Yes, that "shwanz" Have any other guys had this problem. I have been gluten free for just over a month and it seems that I let out a few drops of pee every now and then, mostly when I exert myself. It's not much but I do notice it. I have never had this problem before so it's kind of a nuisance Anyone know what might be causing it? Edit: Schwanz is a german term for a part of the male anatomy
  10. I'm Going To Go Crazy.

    Like a lot of other people have said 1965, it will get easier. There really is no need to spend a fortune on food because the most wholesome food is generally not that expensive. One of the smartest things that I did was get a large Crock Pot. I like to cook as well but it can get to be a bit much sometimes. The benefits of the crockpot are the time savings and the slow cooking makes me feel good, relaxed and full enough that I am not constantly thinking about what to eat next.... and I know the ingredients are good. I can cook on a Sunday night and have enough food to last for a big chunk of the week. I have a 6 quart crock pot and I fill it with potatoes, onions, gluten free beef broth (from wal mart), chicken, carrots, rice flour (to thicken) and many other good things and I let it cook for 10 hours. It's a much healthier and safer option than eating out especially since you are just getting started.
