  1. Burdee, Thanks for asking how I'm doing. I've only been gluten-free for two weeks, but have only had one migraine instead of the usual 4 or 5 over a two-week interval. So I'm hoping it works. I don't know if I have celiac or just a gluten sensitivity, but I've always been "addicted" to wheat products - love them, crave them in an unhealthy way. So it's been hard, but I think it's what I need to do. I've never had the typical GI symptoms of celiac disease, but have always been constipated, and also have some other seemingly related problems - some autoimmune issues, a history of thyroid problems, interstitial cystitis, IBS, etc. The migraines are the primary problem now and the others have abated. Also, my mother and grandmother always had GI problems, so I'm wondering if they had the same thing. Anyway, thanks for your input. Kira
  2. Hi. I just got onto this board, and am not sure if I have celiac. I suspect it because of migraines and low energy which improve if I don't eat gluten. But anyway, I was shocked to read your posting, because I have also had very thick nails on my 1st and 5th toes. I wondered if it was fungus, but it never looked as bad as toes of people who do have fungus, so I just accepted it (and don't wear open-toes sandals!). Also, just the other day, I noticed a large verticle ridge down one of my fingernails and was also wondering about it. Anyway, an interesting possible connection.
  3. Thanks for the links to the articles. I was actually aware of these studies, but there is very little additional research that I know of. I was wondering if any of you have found a connection between migraines and gluten.
  4. Hi. I am new to this board. I do not have any GI symptoms of celiac, but have had migraines for the past 18 years. I have read that not only do a lot of people with celiac disease NOT have the traditional GI symptoms, but also that there is speculation that migraines my be triggered by gluten in some individuals. Do any of you have thoughts about this? Thanks.
