  1. Happy birthday and may God bless you today!

  2. I stopped eating gluten about 3 weeks ago, i also stopped eating soya, msg, dairy and basically everything processed. Only thing i do have is green & blacks 85% dark organic chocolate, chocolate is my one addiction. I've noticed though that when i have some i start to have symptoms, irritability, foggy head. It does say on the label that it may contain soya or milk so i'm gussing it could be that. Does anyone know of any chocolate that is safe to eat cos i really can't imagine having to give up chocolate along with everything else.
  3. Hi everyone It's been roughly 3 weeks now since i went gluten free and i'm still super grumpy, irritable, restless and foggy headed. Is this normal? I know it isn't something i'm eating because i'm only consuming fresh fruit, veggies and meat. I can't believe how manic i feel, i swear i feel like i'm craving something or going through some kind of withdrawal. Surely after 3 weeks i should be feeling better in myself.
  4. Eye Problems?

    I started suffering with an eye problem called palinopsia (seeing trails) about a year ago along wiht the rest of my food/chemical sensitivities and fibromyalgia, also have blurred vision and excessive floaters. don't know if these are related to gluten but the doctors are well baffled.
  5. Gluten Addiction

    I see. That would explain why i feel like an addict needing a fix. I never felt cravings like this when i gave up smoking or drinking, this is something different entirly. I feel like i'm going to freak out if i don't eat something. Thank you for the advice.
  6. This may be a daft question but does eating gluten cause addictive behaviour and mood changes? The reason i ask is because i'd been gluten free for a about a month and i noticed within that time that my depression started to lift and i started to feel a lot calmer BUT last week like an idiot i thought i could handle eating a cookie so i did. Then because i didn't have a reaction within a couple of minutes i thought i'd try something else, fast forward 1 hour and i'd consumed several items of gluten filled food. Needless to say i was ill, i had the full works: headache, stomach cramps, foggy headedness, feeling irritable/agitated and vomiting. The thing is i spent the next 24hrs in agony but my cravings for everything gluten based started to go totally out of control. It's 2 weeks later and i feel like a lunatic, i've got myself into a cycle of stuffing myself stupid with all these foods then spending the next few days in pain feeling like i'm going to die. My mood swings have come back with a vengeance and i'm irritable all of the time. I know it's making me ill but i can't stop!! Why have i lost so much control? Is this normal??? Can gluten cause this or am i just imagining it? I'm so annoyed woth myself.
  7. Hi there thank you for the welcome. It's funny how you say that an illness or stress can trigger it because i've been this way since i had a bad viral infection during one of the most stressful times of my life last year. My doctors think i have chronic fatigue syndrome and wouldn't do any tests on me for food intolerances because they think it's a waste of time, not very helpful really. Glad i found this place, going to take your advice and look around. Thanks again.
  8. I've been having serious health problems for over a year now including becoming sensitive to various foods, perfumes as well as developing various neurological problems. I've noticed that these problems are significantly worse whenever i eat certain foods including anything that is processed or includes aspartame, msg, gluten. I decided to go a few weeks without and i started to notice a difference but the last few days i've lost control and started consuming all the wrong foods again and my mood has changed dramatically. I can't think clearly like i'm in a fog, i'm irritable, feel extremely angry and my throat feels like it's closing up and i'm having difficulty swallowing food. I was wondering if this sounds like a problem with gluten because i'm 34 and i've never had a problem with anything until the last few months, my doctors are totally baffled and i really don't know what to do.
