  1. I live near Baton Rouge, Louisiana and I am looking for a doctor to run the specific tests that diagnose celiac. Can someone please help, thank you, Robin
  2. Hi- I Am A Newbie...

    thank you for responding. I am so miserable, I'll do anything at this point. The biggest thing for me is extreme fatigue, always feeling sick, never feeling calm, always irritable, moody. I have been to so many different docs and have been told, well, maybe this, or here, take this medicine, I've lost all hope of ever having peace and a hope for my childre, which seem to have all of my symptoms, adhd, anxiety, achey joints, sinus trouble, irritable bowel.......
  3. Hi- I Am A Newbie...

    Interesting, I thought that once I would become Gluten free my depression and anxiety would lift some. Am I wrong in assuming this? I know how you feel, lonely, I don't have anyone to talk to about this either. I have not been formerly diagnosed just yet, but, alot of syptoms sure are pointing in the Celiac direction. I am waiting for a call back now from my general practioner. I left message with nurse asking for a Celiac panel with ttg, as per another Dr.'s suggestions. Robin
  4. More info: I have, but, not all of the time, IBS and Acid Reflux. I've tried every med for anxiety and depression, each makes me feel worse or does nothing at all. I just feel jittery and uneasy, never quite satisified, moody, I get irritated easily. After being diagnosed wrongly for a few years, my sister was finally correctly diagnosed with Crohns. I want to feel better so badly. Anyone here from Louisiana? Any feedback would make me feel better. I'll at least know someone has heard me, ty, Robin
  5. Forgot to mention that I had a lot going on 2 yrs ago and never did anything with my diet. Will be starting very soon
  6. I was told two years ago that I am gluten and caesin intolerant. I do not have celiac, is what Doc says, but, I tell you what, I have every symptom on here that I've read so far. I had the white spotted-yellow teeth, I had veneers placed on them two years ago, I have acide refluc, ibs, adhd, anxiety, depression, brain fog...........not to mention, any and all meds just never seem to work on me as they do everyone else. Two of my kids have the white spots on their teeth as well, and, they are yellow. I'm very upset realizing now that I have a lot to learn on yet, another journey, but, excited that this new diet I will be trying will offer some hope, God knows how I pray daily, maybe this is it, thanks for reading, robin
  7. Hello, I went to Dr. Stephanie Cave (alternative med) in Baton Rouge, Louisiana about 2 yrs ago. My results showed that I am intolerant to gluten and caesin. Life was pretty hectic and I did nothing about my new findings. I would love to learn how to get on this diet. I know it sounds like gloom and doom, but, honestly, if this lifts the anxiety/depression/adhd at all, I am game. Scared to get my hopes up and miserable at the same time. I'm choosing to try. Anyone? Ty, Robin
  8. Hello, I am a brand new member here. I visited Dr. Stephanie Cave, (alternative med) about 2 1/2 yrs ago and went through a series of tests. I had these things come back as food intolerant for me: eggs, wheat, milk, onions and a few others. I never did the diet because I had a lot on my plate at the time. I am really wanting to put this to work now though. I know I have alot to learn and that I know next to nothing, but, I'm ready. Any feedback would be welcomed and appreciated. Thank you, Robin
  9. Menstruation And Celiac

    I've been a member here for a total of 30 seconds and I have no idea how to navigate through here, but, I did come here and all I can say is WOW!!! In your signature line you have done away with so many things, how inspiring. I don't know if I'll ever get back to this post, but, would love to hear how this is possible. Gluten free and Caesin free is what I'm shooting for, wow, in any case, thank you for the inspiration. Robin Kilpatrick
