  1. Thank you for coming back to report your success. I was diagnosed on May 12, so I am really new to this. I was also very surprised because I never noticed any gastro distress after eating foods with gluten. However, the brain fog, anxiety, fatigue, and dental problems, all ring true. I look forward to my own success story when I can once again read and comprehend or ride my bike, etc. Thank you!
  2. Thank you for the input everyone. It is nice to not feel alone as this disease seems to be somewhat isolating. It's one of those things you have to experience (either yourself or a loved one) to appreciate. If I am honest with myself, this diagnosis does seem to answer long-standing questions about GI issues, anxiety, and brain fog that I have experienced for years.
  3. Almonds were one of the things I turned to after my diagnosis recently. Unfortunately, I don't seem to be able to digest them. I have issues after eating them. I have not noticed any joint pain though. But I am very new to this.
  4. I am so glad I found this forum! I have been reading for about a week or so and finally joined. I was diagnosed with Celiac disease on May 12. I am a little confused. I have always had a "bad" stomach. Years ago I was diagnosed with gastritis found during an edoscopy. I learned to avoid things that gave me a stomach ache and got along pretty well. The weird thing is that my "go to" foods during attacks were plain pasta and white bread. I never noticed any symptoms from eating those things. Fast forward to the end of January 2009.... I had a horrible stomach attack. The pain was intense, but got better after vomiting. The odd thing was that I threw up food that I had eaten the day before. I was actually crying and moaning from the pain at my Doc's office. He sent me to the emergency room. They found nothing wrong and sent me home after some morphine. I figured it was a fluke and went on with my life. A month later...another attack with the pain and vomiting plus diarrhea. I did not bother with the emergency room this time. I just went to my regular Doc the next day. He referred me to a GI Doc. He set me up to have an EGD and colonoscopy right away. I am a cancer survivor. I was sure the tests would show radiation damage or something. Nope! Everything was good except my small intestine. The biopsy showed Celiac disease. I have been on the Gluten free diet ever since (after one last binge at Applebee's on May 12). Anyway, I don't feel much different on the gluten-free diet. My husband says my anxiety has gotten much better. Who knew that my horrible anxiety could be caused by something like gluten? Anyway...my question is after typing up a book (sorry)....do my symptoms sound lilke celiac disease? Could my Doc be wrong? I have eaten pasta and bread all my life without noticing anything. Thanks to any and all who take the time to read my post and respond.
