  1. I've actually been taking benefiber for, i'd say, about two months now, and i feel great, if not better. Though i'm glad i found this old thread because i did wonder about the label.
  2. i agree i shouldn't, but they actually went away before either changing the diet or quitting smoking. The anxiety didn't completely diminish until i stopped drinking coffee and smoking cigarettes (year an a half in on the diet). I did go to a psychologist, and he never really diagnosed me anything; to him, it would seem, it was a case of stress, and only natural anxiety. I'm no longer anxious, and no, i do not get them anymore, thankfully. It is certainly plausible that i may be prone to panic attack, but i cannot be sure. This all could very well be a celiac response, and if so i pray i may have a final diagnosis, but everything is completely doubtful. Truly, i've had much come my way since the resolution that should of reproduced said anxiety/panic attacks, but it has not reoccurred. To say that least this is all with or without the military and/or celiacs disease has been a great annoyance.
  3. I've been going over things, and lists of things that possibly do have gluten in them. I can drink beer with barley and wheat just fine. I've had time and time again my girlfriends cousins chicken dish with both chicken and cream of broccoli soup, etc. I just started eating pasta and some cheerios to test myself, and i'm feeling pretty good. How long and how much should i introduce to really test myself? mind you i've been on the diet for three years; i don't know if there is a certain percentage? I know my brothers girlfriend is a dietician and she said to re introduce a new thing once a week, does this seem reasonable? thanks for any advice
  4. ****Please note i do not have medical insurance any longer, and this is why i'm coming here for advice. Forgive me for the long(ish) post**** I've been on a Gluten free diet for the past three years, and i've shown much improvement. I've been to the doctor, and both the internal medicine and gastroenterologist Drs seem to believe i do not have it; even after explaining at length the symptoms i was feeling. Now i realize i used to smoke (Pack and half tops) and drink large quantities of coffee that could contribute to the symptoms of anxiety and weight loss. I have recently taken the blood test (which i could not affirm) saying my blood is negative for celiac spruce. Be that as it may, could these past three years of been pandering of a panic ridden fiend or could i truly be suffering from it? This is only a concern since I'm planing to join the Marine Corp, and i do not want to have to lie about anything. PLus if i do not have to be on the diet then i certainly would not like to, and as such if it seems overwhelmingly obvious for me to end the gluten free diet; is there any precautions i should take to rejoining the wheat enhanced diet? My past symptoms include: Weight loss Panic attacks Diarrhea-(Pale, foul smelling) Jitters tingling in hands, but only after panic attacks Naturally i thought this was a panic disorder, and i fought against the disorder and won even before going on gluten-free diet. Eventually i stopped drinking coffee and smoking cigarettes after starting the gluten-free and then i felt AMAZING, but if i relapsed a cigarette everything, minus weightloss, would reoccur. Since then i've gone from 125 LBS (from ages 14-20 minus the dip of 10 lbs at the age of 19) to 150 lbs am extremely physically fit, and suffer from nothing. I have at time tried wheat products and have been fine (I.E. pizza), but at other times i've had diarrhea and bloating (from oatmeal, non gluten-free pasta sauces, etc). Reading this i know i've probably skipped much, so, if there is any detrimental information you need in formulating your opinion please by all means ask. Forgive me for the long post but i wanted to be thorough, and thank you so much for any help you may be able to offer. Matt
