  1. I am tired throughout the day no matter how much I sleep. I just slept 12 hours and had some chex for lunch and I want to sleep more. If I drink coffee or soda, it doesn't really help me feel more awake. And when I take a nap, I'm ready to go back asleep as soon as I wake up. It's a vicious cycle. All my friends make fun of me that I'm always tired. It's not my fault!
  2. I take ginger root. I get bloated and feel sick so ginger root helps a lot.
  3. I've been looking for people in the Kansas City area too! I'm in Prairie Village and wonder if there is any support group in town.
  4. I've had a painful stomach my whole life. A few months ago, I decided it was time to go to the gastro and see if something was actually wrong with me. After only a few tests, they found out that I had celiac disease. My whole life has changed. I have lost weight. Gained energy. Gotten healthier. Changed my whole diet of course, and had to explain my diet to a lot of people. I was just wondering if there is anything I should do to be more careful in not getting gluten in my diet. I already look at labels and research, but am I missing anything? I just want to make sure I am prepared for whatever celiac disease can throw at me.
  5. Before I started my gluten free diet, I was tired all day long. I also could never remember my dreams. And now that I have been on it for a few months, things have changed. At first, I wasn't tired at all during the day. Now, I remember my dreams and I am starting to become more tired. Does anyone have anything like this?
  6. Depending on how much I got, it will either be horrible abdominal pains or the big D. I have never really experienced headaches or pains in my joints.
