  1. I just read your post and thought I was reading about myself! It's been 15 months since I was diagnosed with Celiac. Prior to being diagnosed my symptoms included severe anemia and other than that I was asymptomatic with the exception of my hands falling asleep in the middle of the night. I've been gluten-free since the day of my diagnosis After going gluten-free I was deficient in B Vitamins and Vitamin D; I took a weekly Vitamin B shot and 50,000 units of D weekly, after three months my levels were normal and I discontinued the vitamins. I do take a multiple vitamin and calcium daily but no D,B, or iron. In addition my anemia went away as well as my hands no longer fell asleep during the night. A few weeks ago I began having severe joint pain and my hands are extremely cold during the day and night and my hands and arms fall asleep while sleeping. Ten years ago I was diagnosed with Graves Disease, another autoimmune disease, I had a thyroidectomy eight years ago and my thyroid levels remain normal. Does anyone have any idea why I would be having absorption issues even though I am entirely gluten-free, and is it common to have joint pain and hands falling asleep while sleeping?
  2. Happy birthday and may God bless you today!

  3. I was diagnosed one month ago and have not yet been glutened, at least not that I am aware of. I was pretty asymptomatic, severe anemia was my indicator which led to biopsy/endoscopy, tested positive. I have gained twenty pounds over the last two years and can't take it off, wonder if it will eventually happen. I exercise five days a week and have a very healthy diet. What I have noticed is I can not tolerate foods I used to eat prior to going gluten-free. I bloat after drinking soy milk and have developed an extremely gassy stomach after eating virtually any meal, has anyone experienced this? Thanks for your input, just TRYING to figure it out! I don't feel this is too difficult to live with as I adore cooking and am versed enough to question any chef in a restaurant. I could go crazy if I start to NOT trust restaurants, I simply speak with the manager, waiter and chef in detail and hope for the best!
