  1. My GI doctor put me on VS-3. I dont know for sure how well it is working, but i guess it seems to help (?)
  2. Thanks Kamma, The only processed foods i eat right now are "gluten free" pasta from europe, gluten-free salad dressing and chex gluten free cereal with almond milk. im sketchy on the almond milk but ingredients look ok. Im actually having a neuro reaction this moment at work, but have not ate anything different than i have for last 3 days when being "normal" feeling. Im just losing my mind becuase every time i think im starting to feel better and start to believe i actually am gluten intollerant i have a set back and just want to scream. the current symptoms gave me tingly arms, hands got really cold and i thought i was gonna pass out, then quickly ate lunch consisting of rice, plain chicken and green beans and took a vitamin and the symptoms lessed but still linger.
  3. Luke. Yes i have the exact same thing happening to me. Im currently on a gluten free diet for two weeks and while there have been a few good days i have definately still had waves of symptoms. I get the dizziness and numb arms with tingling. I have lost ten poinds, especially in my waist, and have lost much muscle strength. Some days i caan lift a decent amount and two days later i cant lift a fraction of it. My dr is no help and right now im jist treading water hoping to really feel better from my gluten free diet. Unfortunately it doesnt deter my frequent worry since i still dont have any kind of answer. Keep us posted on your progress but i suggest seeing how a gluten-free diet works for you
  4. Ok. Let me start by saying that i have not been diadnosed w celiacs or gluten intolerance, however i believe different. I have had all the symptoms from stomach pain, bloat, throbbing legs, nauseua, dizziness, fogginess, tingly arms etc. i started a gluten free diet almost two weeks ago now. Where i become concerned is that i had 4 good days of very little symptoms and then today i woke the the full dizziness and nauseua. I dont believe i have had any gluten and want to know if anyone ever experiences their symptoms go away and come back during their "detox" period from gluten. Im worried there can be more than a gluten intolerance and my drs disagreement and lack of interest in me having a potential gluten intolerance is starting to wear me down. I had a colonoscopy and endoscopy back in nov when i first had bad symptoms but i came back negative for celiacs. I went a couple months without severe symptoms and didnt consider a gluten intolerance. However i had a stretch of eating wheat pasta over ten straight days foe lunch and dinner and shortly after was out of work for four days. I have self diagnosed with gluten intolerance because every symptom i had was applicable but my wave of recurring symptoms have me doubting myself and im wondering if anyone else has experienced this. Thanks ahead of time for any responses. Im just looking for support!
