  1. For my part, I can recall different moments when celiac disease seemed to be triggered (with stress, diet change etc.) but I think the strongest one was when I got a whole lot of vaccines (before travelling abroad). My already very fragile health definitly deterioted. I have never had to get vaccines again since but I actually would be quite worried if I had to.
  2. Gluten Reactions

    CC will usually give me a burning feeling in the stomach/belly plus nausea, diarrhea, brain fog and fatigue for a couple of hours or the rest of the day. If I actually have a bite of something containing gluten, it feels like I drank bleach! Terrible "cramps" for a couple a hours (like burning with spasms; can barely walk or move), diarrhea followed by constipation (for a couple of days), extreme fatigue, depression, bloating, sore joints, mouth ulcers, and I might be forgetting a few more(very intense for 1-2 days and usually goes away after 4-5 days).But, put short, it's something you just really don't want to happen.
  3. I have been gluten-free for 2 years and had already cut out dairy and had other mild intolerances. But the more I heal the more I have problems with other foods. I hear this is quite frequent. But why? Shoudn't our (more) healed bodies tolerate other foods better, and not the other way around? Any experiences, ideas, possible explanations, readings to share about that?
  4. Any Celiac(s) From Canada

    Hi fellow canadians! I'm from Montreal!
  5. Sudden Insomnia After Going Gluten Free

    Same here! For years I have had either a toasts or cereal before bed. I thought it was the carbs that were making me sleepy (I was eating pretty much low carb all day). But no! I realised when I went gluten-free that it was actually the bad stuuf that was knocking me out. I have noticed how sleepy I get when I come in contact with the tiniest amount of gluten. Since going gluten-free (2 years ago) I have tried about every trick and remedy. I good snack seems to help, I also found some natural herbal mix that is quite effective and sometimes some yoga helps. But every night I have to keep the same relaxing routine and I make sure I only go to bed when I'm quite sleepy. I am now realising I was "using" gluten as a sleeping peel and was quite addicted... It's frustrating at first but my now sleep (and without a doubt my health) is constantly getting better. Hope you also find tricks that work for you.
  6. Hi! I have been gluten-free for about 2 years and I was very very strict for the first one and never took any risks of getting glutened. But now I try to be careful but I have had a couple of accidents. And everytime the symptoms are more violent. I thought and I had heard from some other celiacs that after recovery symptoms would actually decrease... Is your body also reacting more even after being gluten-free for a while? Or is it less? Thanks for you help.
