  1. I have been gluten free since mid-October (except for 2 small setbacks). I feel much better most of the time, but sometimes it's as if I'm still eating gluten- tired and a little bloated but in addition to the old symptoms I also feel incredibly irritable. It's as if I'm on some kind of miserable diet that my body is resisting. My body seems to be needing carbs. I expected some carb withdrawal in the beginning but didn't have any. Now it seems to strike randomly. Is it carb withdrawal after 4 months of being gluten-free? I really don't think I've inadvertently consumed gluten. I'm ridiculously careful and never eat out.
  2. I just discovered a 100% gluten free line this weekend- Afterglow cosmetics. The founder has family members with Celiac Disease. I ordered some lipgloss last night and am anxious to see if I like it. You should look at their website.
  3. I've been eating Amy's gluten-free enchiladas for a couple of weeks without any problems. However, I'm pretty sure I was "glutened" earlier this week. The only thing I can point to is the Amy's I had for lunch. I've only been gluten-free for about 4 months so am still getting use to what is normal and what is not. I'm wondering if I am being paranoid. My symptoms weren't severe- a little bloated and extreme fatigue. Then a few days later some mild stomach problems. How can I know for sure when I've been glutened? Is there some kind of test that I can do? Or would I know for sure?
  4. Thank you- that is so good to know. I thought that I was going crazy. I'm going to give up soft drinks for awhile and see how it goes. I'm going to have to also learn to be a little more patient. ~sigh~
  5. So did the Pepsi Max actually cause pain or just bloating? I live on Coke One and/or Pepsi Max (depending on which is on sale). After being diagnosed with Celiac about 6 weeks ago, I went gluten (but NOT soft drink) free and the pain and most of the bloating I had been experiencing disappeared. Recently it has come back. I've made no change to my diet and can't figure out why. The only thing that I have had that it could possibly be is Pepsi Max. But would I just now be reacting to it? And would it mimic a gluten reaction? Perhaps my body has just reached a saturation point- and is too weak to tolerate it anymore?
