  1. Chronic Fatigue And Coeliacs

    Some of your stories sound similar to mine - I was diagnosed with Glandular Fever (mono), Alopecia, Tonsillitis (frequently) then Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/ME. I got sick of being sick and did exclusion diets and discovered that wheat, dairy, chocolate, chicken and eggs make me ill. Getting rid of gluten wasn't enough on it's own as I guess the damage had already been done to my stomach and I now cannot tolerate cow's milk at all (it causes symptoms like fibromyalgia so if you are gluten-free and not DF it might be worth giving it a try). My asthma has improved dramatically, as have my skin problems. Goat's milk is much easier to digest btw. Good luck and I hope you get much better soon. Are you taking B vitamins (yeast free) and probiotics? Along with Glutamine and Candiclear from Higher Nature I find they help to heal the gut after an accidental glutening. PureHeart x
  2. Blood Blisters

    I got a really nasty one at the back of my throat after eating flavoured crisps. It started to choke me a bit but then fortunately popped leaving me with a mouth full of blood. Nice! I got one at the weekend from Free From biscuits, which are really hard and crunchy, so maybe it's because the food scratches the cheek and lets a foreign substance enter the bloodstream? Maybe the body creates a blister to isolate it or wash it away? PureHeart
