  1. And all of these foods that are mentioned are GLUTEN FREE?????????????
  2. I also use the hair conditioner for shave cream. It works great.
  3. Could the whole dairy thing be causing the problems....my doctor told me to stay away from dairy being gluten intolerant?
  4. I too am new to gluten free and did not know this. Shocked I am.........I have been living off of gluten free pasta. Maybe this is why my head doesn't feel much better????????
  5. Thank you so much everyone. I was back to the Dr. 2 days ago and she said I misunderstood her and that my Homocysteine was low. She did all of my blood work over again and is checking my B 12 also. She said I will need my blood checked about 2 to 3 times a year. Say's I'm gluten intolerant which supposedly goes hand in hand with IGA deficient and should follow the gluten-free way, which I have been sticking to. Will know in a week or two what the new results are and see whats going on now. Thanks again.
  6. Walmart sells B12 sublinguals. I found them there yesterday. They had 2500 mcg. gluten-free, soy free and more free.
  7. Tingling Fingers?

    All of my test were negative but I have the same problem with my left side also. It's also my ring and pinky finger but my whole left side has tingling, numbness and pain. Can't help you, just wanted you to know you're not alone. Hope gluten-free works for you. I'm still waiting after gluten-free for a total of 2 weeks........was a month but had to eat for biopsy.
  8. Hello Everyone, I have written a few post re: celiac or not, blood and biopsy negative but possible intolerant. Losing my Vit. D and IGA deficient. My question is: What is Homocysteine, Nutritional too much. I am not deficient. I have am higher than normal and my Dr. said she did not know what it meant. She said she knew what deficient was but did not know the other end. Does anyone know about this? If so, is it okay to be higher? Will it hurt me? Is there a way to regulate this? Any info would be great. Thank you. Jackie
  9. I was on vacation and tried a different bottle of water and had the same experience. I got very sick. From then on..........I stuck with the bottle that didn't cause me any reactions. I hope your girlfriend is feeling better. Maybe she could find a bottled water that suits her belly and use that at your home.
  10. You're so sweet......helping others when you are hurting too. I wish you all better. I am taking meds for the depression but still don't want to go out. It will be okay though. I will stick to the gluten-free diet and see how much better I get and go from there. Congrats on the Movie. I'm so glad you were able to go. I will give all of this time to work and heal me and then think about it. Thank you so very much.
  11. Thank you so much for the information. My doctors are done now that they say I do not have Celiac. I am sticking with the diet. I just ordered Cecelia's Marketplace gluten-free casein and soy free due to them being sold out everywhere for gluten free and dairy. Their finishing up on their 2009 2010 additions. It just makes me wonder if I should stop tryng to find out if there is something different wrong with me that I should continue to look for an answer in order to maybe help myself if it's not the gluten. Did that make sense? I will get the Vitamin B12 and I started taking Vitamin D3 about a month ago and take 3 to 4 thousand a day plus my multi plus 1500 calcium. You've been a big help and I so appreciate any guidance. On Another note.......Has anyone heard of any of this causing someone to become a HERMIT? I do not want to leave the house and I don't unless absolutely necessary. I will go on a trip here and there but do not want to be around people. It seems to get worse each day. I use to be a people person. No worries if no one has no answers.
  12. I was previously told I had a Stroke untill seeing the Neurologist. An EEG states possible seizures in Left Temporal Lobe with pain and sensitivityand migraines on that side, depression, severe neurological problems, numbness and tingling at different parts of my body but most of the time on left side, constipation and more. So I guess it's not worth going for the food testing due to meeting the same challenges as the biopsy. hmmmmmm Thank you so much......just frustrated. I am also losing my Vit. D and I've also been recenty diagnosed with IGA deficient.
  13. Thank you for all of your answers. Which leads me to.......What is the difference in being gluten intolerant and Celiac? Is there NO damage done to your organs if you are only intolerant? Besides the fact that it makes me sick and all kinds of other stuff.
  14. I tested negative to Celiac with blood testing and biopsy. Will having the food allergy testing help me to know for sure if I am gluten intollerant? Are there questions I should be asking? I called to schedule an appointment and it was like a test. They couldn't understand why I wanted to come. I told them all of my symptoms, history and she still said, what are you allergic to." I thought that was what the appointment is for. I told her some of the foods that bother me and I still felt lost from her. I am trying to help myself with scheduling an appointment........should I not do this? Thank you. My appointment is for next Friday.
  15. Wake up and start fresh tomorrow. I hear lots of water too.
