  1. A great person once said "because they're idiots". I didn't say this so please don't quote me. haha Honestly, a lot of autoimmune diseases share common symptoms and many doctors(particularly in the states) are just not familiar with this disease yet. I've had chronic fatigue for the past seven years and many doctors to this day question its existence. I've tested negative for celiac disease as well, despite the many symptoms I have and the family history. It doesn't make sense to me either but you mustn't get discouraged. Keep being persistent and never give up on finding the answers to your questions.
  2. You state this like it's a bad thing. Doesn't it rain quite a bit in your vicinity? I've heard that there is a connection with the change in barometric pressure and general malaise. Of course, it's just a theory and one should never believe everything that is heard. Marlon Brando once said so. Therefore, it must be true.
  3. On the contrary. Such symptoms are never normal. For years, I had fainting spells. A B-complex vitamin is especially important but depending on how well you're absorbing, intravenous vitamins may be the way to go. Have you had your blood sugar checked? You may be hypoglycemic, which is often associated with fainting. Très glamourous it all is, isn't it? hahah Seriously though, I hope you begin to feel better soon. Btw, I've had elevated liver enzymes myself, which returned to normal after a few months on a gluten-free diet. It could be a coincidence but I don't think so.
  4. I'm sure it was something with Barilla pasta. It was so filling and of course, too filling.
  5. Isn't it possible that you could've had a such a breakout anyway?
  6. Young children who get gluten everywhere? How are they getting gluten everywhere unless they're playing with flour like dirt? I don't understand. I don't believe anyone claimed that such a thing is funny. Is airbourne gluten the same thing as steam? I didn't reply to anyone disrespectfully but am about to. It's quite apparent that you don't understand nor appreciate my sense of humour but I didn't realize that gluten could destroy one's sense of humour. I suppose that's one symptom that I've not experienced yet!
  7. With respect, "gluten-like" isn't the same thing as gluten.
  8. I've had that before and it is disgusting. From now on, if I want Ranch dressing, I'll make it homemade.
  9. Those are a lot of ingredients. Why don't you just get some real yogurt, like plain yogurt and add honey or fruit to sweeten?
  10. Then, stop! Well, who doesn't? Well, I've often felt weakened down from hot showers but I don't think "gluten steam" is a problem. haha You hold your breath? No wonder you're feeling anxious, lack of oxygen. That would be a rather extreme action and I get a feeling it wouldn't resolve your symptoms.
  11. Are you kidding? I have to be concerned about my olive oil? Did someone just put a curse on me?
  12. Why couldn't you tolerate the sublingual vitamins?
  13. Actually, it is, especially considering the fact that one consumes water in the form of fruits, vegetables, etc. Perhaps, you're misjudging the amount of water you're really drinking but I've studied nutrition in college and learned about the dangers of water intoxication. To consume as much water as you've claimed is very dangerous.
  14. It's important to inform one's physician about any kind of diet. There are always health risks with any kind of diet. To claim that there is no harm in going on a diet isn't necessarily true.
