  1. Hello again, Thanks heaps for your responses. Symptoms have been with me for as long as I can remember, but not all the time. On and off for several years. I've been checked for other diseases (including lupus). I'm lucky, nothing else there. Sorry to hear about your troubles. Hope things will work out fine. Nausea happens pretty much all day but generally more when I just wake up. Common reaction of doctors is to think I'm pregnant, which I'm sure others have experienced also. Eating does not have any effects. I will just have to be ultra strict and wait! Cheers, Margot
  2. Dear all, Thanks for being on this forum. It helps to know I'm not alone. After several years of unexplained bouts of nausea and tiredness I was diagnozed last year. I've been gluten-free and dairy free for 8 months and have started feeling better. Occasionally I make a mistake (not good, have to be completely strict about this, but work takes me many places), and the response is quite severe. The local Celiacs here have a wide range of symptoms, but not like mine and I was wondering if there is anyone out there who reacts similar to me and if he/she has any suggestions on how to deal with the reactions. My main reactions are fatique, muscle aches (like you're having the flu: arms, legs), nausea, and occasional bloating and dizziness. I'm currently at home, having eaten some gluten in a marinade last Friday. My diet mostly consists of rice, vegetables, fruits and meat. I have not taken anything for the aches or nausea. Bit nervous about taking over the counter medication. If there is anyone who has suggestions perhaps in the herbal area (maybe a certain herbal tea) or the food area to improve energy levels and reduce the aches, I'd be very interested. Does it also take you a week or longer to recover from a (tiny) mistake? Best to
