  1. Caramel Coloring?

    yes it could be and I didn't take that into consideration.
  2. Caramel Coloring?

    I am currently reacting to Coca Cola....or so I think. Its been a year since I tried it again. I'm super sensitive and just wanted a Rum and Coke at x-mass with the Family. I knew i could potentially react, but I really thought I could get away with it, with only minor symptoms....horribly wrong, this has been one of the swiftest reactions and pretty debilitating so far today. I hope it only lasts a few days this time. I'm still on the fence as to wether it was worth it.... I really enjoyed my husband's family after the rum and cokes! LOL! I won't be doing it again of course, but I was blissfully ignorant for a few hours before the pain started!
  3. I just wanted to say thank you all for sharing and EXISTING! I'm sorry you all suffer as I do, but thank GOD I'm not crazy. I really believe I'm conjuring these symptoms as I've been told for 18+ years.....I know I'm sick but i question sometimes if all this stress over the food is really necessary. I know it is, I know this is what I have to do, but it gets to be to much some days and then I find this healing community Living my life and sharing my struggles. Thank you all for the details and strategies. I've been gluten-free for 2+ years, my daughter and son are gluten-free as well, Daughter is seeming to be super sensitive as well. I have a hard time convincing the husband to not sneak G to my son who is seemingly much less reactive and has delayed reactions. Its a journey...the Holidays make it bumpy, but you guys really help. Thanks!
  4. Just found out why I get hives from the medical adhesives and why the stitches are infected...both contain gluten. Anyone else have this issue? I was so fed up this the stitches and the swelling I removed them myself after Dr. refused. He laughed wen I asked about gluten being in the supplies for the procedure.
  5. I'm guessing I'm very sensitive...got negative blood test, but have had great improvement with all areas of my life since going gluten-free. However I've realised I can not touch gluten foods nor eat most foods deemed gluten-free without reaction. I'm in bed again today with sever gut pain and am coming to the conclusion I will not be eating anything but fruits veggies and meat nor use any skin care product that is affordable. I'm feeling lost in the Pandora's box of the gluten-free world.
  6. I'm a mother of two children and have recently gone gluten-free after 17 years of misdiagnosis. INcluding a negative celiac disease blood test. after 3 days being gluten free all "IBS" symptoms went away and now after 2 months I see so many other symptoms disappearing only to reappear after accidental exposure. I'm wondering if my extreme pain during pregnancy was due to the gluten and if having an insufficient milk supply is also part of this? Any thoughts or comments are appreciated. I'm contemplating another pregnancy and wondering if I might enjoy it this time!
