  1. Thanks for all of your responses. I'm so glad to hear there is a cheaper and easier option that other people aren't having trouble using. I had trouble with a generic tramadol a while back and I guess that's why I've stuck with the brand name. That was so long ago though. I just hadn't had any reason to change until now. Anyway, thanks again for responding so quickly. You guys are great! I'm going to give the tramadol a try this week.
  2. Hey guys, I checked to see if this had been discusssed, but did not see any previous topics. Please forgive me if it has. I normally take the brand name Ultram for my small fiber neuropathy since I have had so much trouble in the past finding out which generics were gluten free. My pharmacy has just informed me they will no longer be carrying the brand name Ultram and have the generic tramadol by Amneal. I called Amneal today and was told there is no wheat, barley, rye, or oats in the tramadol and it is in the clear for celiacs. The lady said the only item that may cause some an issue was the corn starch, which comes from corn gluten, so they do not say it is "gluten free", but they will say it is ok for celiac patients. My question is, has anyone had any experience with this manufacturer of tramadol and how did it go? Any information is helpful. I can start searching for other pharmacies that carry the brand name Ultram in my area if necessary, but if the Amneal generic works just as well, then I see no need to do so. Thanks in advance for y'all help! Jamie
  3. I was diagnosed with small fiber neuropathy they believe was caused by the gluten and vitamin deficiencies I had. Going gluten free and taking D helped quite a bit and gave me a lot of my mobility back. I also take monthly B12 injections to help with the tingling. After still having some pain(burning, tingling), I decided to look into other food intolerances and took a test. Cutting out several other foods I reacted to helped enough for me to get off my pain medicine I was taking daily. I do still communicate with the doctor that diagnosed me but she is across the country so I do not see her. I am hoping my neuropathy was caught early enough for a possible reversal once I get my diet right. I know how frustrating the neuropathy is and hope you find some relief soon.
  4. Age diagnosed: 27 through Enterolab<br style="color: rgb(44, 54, 68); line-height: 19px; background-color: rgb(243, 249, 246); ">Period of time gluten-free: 2.5 years<br style="color: rgb(44, 54, 68); line-height: 19px; background-color: rgb(243, 249, 246); ">Estimated % of Full Recovery: 75% I've had ups and downs but a lot of my neurological symptoms have reduced making everything else easier to tolerate. I spend a lot of time tracking down the ingredient making me sick when I have set backs but so far I've been mostly correct once I find it. I've also cut out dairy and taken an (Company Name Removed - They Spammed This Forum and are Banned) test to see if I can get closer to 100%.
  5. I have pain in my rib cage usually right after I eat gluten. It's how I know I've eaten it even though sometimes I can't even figure out where it came from. It's interesting to see that others have it too. I was also diagnosed with vitamin D deficiency. I now have normal D levels, but I still get that pain in my ribs anytime I've been glutened.
