  1. wow i can't believe i found other people with these issues. i am a year into being gluten free and it feels like my stomach has finally relaxed and gotten small enough that my tailbone and sacrum have finally opened up. i was having to take massive medications and be super inactive and I am just praying that I can re-strengthen and hold my joints together as go through my day! this has been a profound change, and finding my own cranial-sacral adjustments has helped infinitely more than a 'professional' could have. the sacral bone controls so much of your nervous system's input, my vision and mental energy have changed a ton, i'm getting feeling back in my back, and i'm finally able to breathe into my muscles to relax them. truly amazing.
  2. YES!! and after about 2-3 weeks of zero gluten, my sacrum finally relaxes and the pain starts to subside. It feels like it's created a lot of major postural problems as well as weak back muscles. Stay away from sugar too!
  3. sounds about right
  4. i downed a bunch of probiotics and fell asleep 2 hrs earlier than i usually do. the gut is feeling all bloated burning and numbish, marijuana's the only thing that helps at this point. i pray i make it longer than a month without gluten soon. i really want to heal.
  5. yes =\ thats what i was asking, and darnit!
  6. thanks for the quick response! i'm leaving work early to go find some ipecac, it'll be like 3 hrs after ingestion, but it's my birthday weekend coming up and i'd be bummed if i had to lay in bed wasted the whole time!! i will also look into getting some 'probiotic pearls' at the store. "this is the part of the job i HATE"
  7. I'm wondering if anyone has any stand-by tools for if they accidentily ingest gluten?? I dont have any ipecac around (i'm going to buy some asap), i just drank some baking soda and water, but I'm wondering do any of these things help? Would ipecac even help?? thanks!
  8. just the word maltodextrin freaked me out, but it had tapioca in front of it so I just downed 2 tangerine packets.
  9. yes, the HUNGRY feeling. It is not hunger, at least not for me, I find it to be a numb burn, for me it's a combination of bloatedness and constipation, and i ultimately crave food to help move the blockage. it does not really help. it takes about 7 days from eating gluten for it to start fading away.
  10. I am just learning to remove gluten from my diet, after going 2 weeks without it, my lower back, my hips, my posture, all my body pain and abdomen discomfort/bloatedness had subsided almost completely. after making a mistake last week, it all returned in about a day in a half and I'm just starting to feel kind of okay again. It seems like it can have a huge effect on joint pains, and yes, the bloating seemed to hugely effect my lower back+sacrum. I'm still blown away by how crippling the effects can be.
