  1. I'm looking for a good GI doctor and a primary care physician in Lincoln. I know of some good ones in Omaha, NE, but they won't be covered by my health insurance. I'm dealing with multiple food sensitivities and need someone who really knows what they're talking about! Any help would be great! Thanks! Sarah
  2. Pre-Mixed Drinks

    Ugh. That "natural flavors" thing is annoying! It's a cop-out if you ask me. Manufacturers should be required to list what exactly they are. Thanks! Sarah
  3. I really want a fruity mixed drink that I can buy at the store (such as daiquiris, martinis, etc.). Also, a separate minty drink would be awesome. I discovered alcohol 2 days before I discovered wheat makes me sick, so I'm kinda missing it. I want to try them all, and I CAN'T! Suggestions? Thanks! Sarah
  4. Getting "brain Fog" Worse Than Before

    Well, it took a little over a month, but my brain fog is finally clearing up. It was so weird because it got worse after I cut out gluten, but you were right about me getting traces of it. I was a bad girl. As soon as I stuck to the diet religiously, it seemed to clear right up! I'm feeling so much better. Thanks everyone!
  5. It's possible in adults, so I'm sure it is with kids, also. My concern is that it won't show if your child hasn't been eating gluten. From the research I've done, it looks like introducing gluten and damaging the gut is the only way you'll get a positive (unless the gut's permanently damaged). You might want to reschedule after many months of a gluten diet.
  6. I'm not officially diagnosed, but I removed gluten from my diet a few weeks ago "on a hunch". When I added it back in (for 1 1/2 days), I was miserable, so I'm gluten-free again. I feel so much better! The stomach pain's gone, the reflux is going away, the gas is gone. It's amazing!! No more TUMS or acid reflux medications. My only question is, my brain fog is way, way, WAY worse. I have trouble keeping my mind on one thing. I've had to void 2 checks in 2 days because I can't even write a check right. I can't count money right. Is this normal??? I'm wondering if my body's flushing toxins and that's what's happening, or if something's wrong.
