  1. Happy birthday and may God bless you today!

  2. Thank you all for your responses and support. Kaiti I didn't think about it before, but I just checked my shampoo, and sure enough, hydrolized wheat protein and hydrolized wheat starch. Gone now. The numbers on my bloodwork that I posted are what they were when I was diagnosed. I have been seriously considering having the bloodwork done again to see where I'm at now. I've accidentally consumed gluten twice since I was diagnosed. Could you please send me the list of companies? I would really appreciate it! Also, where did you get the spray and cola syrup? If either at least help relieve some of the nausea, I'd like to at least try it out, as nausea is my biggest symptom as well. Carrie I will definately take your suggestions and check everything out. Thank you! Tiffany I haven't been tested for any other intolerances, but I have had it suggested before. Now does seem to be a good time to add that to my to-do list.
  3. I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease almost 4 months ago (2/21/05). I have been mostly gluten-free since (I've slipped up a couple times, still in the learning process), but I still feel absolutely miserable. A bit of background. I started feeling very nauseated after eating back on 2/2/02. At first, I thought I had just come down with something, and it would go away, which it didn't. Saw my doctor, tried this and that, the nausea came and went in various intervals. I'd feel fine for a period of time, then feel terrible for another period of time (I went almost a full year of feeling just fine at one point). A multitude of tests later, I was diagnosed with Celiac on 2/21 of this year. The whole time from 2/2/02, when I started feeling this way, up until I was diagnosed, I ate nothing but gluten foods; for just over 3 years. It's been 4 months since I was diagnosed, and I still feel miserable; overwhelmingly nauseated, gagging, vomiting, etc. I'm sure that this is probably due to my eating nothing but gluten foods for the 3 year period from when the symptoms first started, and the time I was diagnosed. I had both a positive biopsy, and positive bloodwork. The numbers on my bloodwork weren't even close. The bloodwork that I had done was the IgG/IgA. I don't remember which was which, but the "normal" range for both is 0-19 (within that range, you do not have Celiac), my numbers were 67 and 126. My doctor just recently put me on a prescription of both compazine and bentyl to see if that would help with the nausea. It's only been a week, and I've noticed some improvements so far, but not as much as I'd like. I was wondering if anyone knew of any ways to help "ease the pain"?
