  1. I can understand your frustration. I was not diagnosed as being celiac, until the age of 32. I was diagnosed on symptoms alone; all of my tests that they did at that time were negative even though I was a full blown celiac. The biopsy was not done until I was on a gluten free diet for 5 years. No way was I ingesting gluten for anyone. I wish I could tell you that you will find answers right away. If going on a gluten free diet relieves most of your symptoms; do it, but you must be diligent and eliminate all gluten , including medications and cross contamination. This is very frustrating for someone starting out so do join gluten free support groups . I have been gluten free for 25 years and still must be diligent. Hang in there .
  2. I need help finding an MD. I need someone who is specialized in Neuropathy with a background of Celiac Disease. I have been diagnosed with Celiac Disease in 1985 and have been on a strict Gluten free Diet since then. I am now having problems with Ataxia, and Neuropathies which are progressing. Both my Neurologist and other specialists want me to see a Celiac Specialist treating neuropathies. Help. State or Province not a problem, even leaving the country would be acceptable if I could find this Superspecialist. Thanks
  3. You may have an allergy to eggs. The mayonnaise in the chicken salad is made from eggs. I would definitely check this out with an allergist asap and avoid eating anything made from eggs until You do so. This sounds like the beginning of a bad reaction to an allergen.
