    Home daycare provider. Self diagnosed gluten intolerant. Love boating, reading, and spending time with my family. Two beautiful daughters and a supportive wonderful husband!
  1. Hello! I am just wondering if I should even bother with getting tested. I started getting very ill a few times to the point of vomiting after eating wheat. I googled all my symptoms and decided to try going gluten free to see if I would start feeling better. I have been gluten free for 3 weeks now (although I have been accidentally glutened twice!) and I can't believe the difference! I am 43 years old and was feeling so tired ALL the time it was pathetic. I constantly had achy legs, to the point of punching them just to make them feel better. ( not sure if that makes any sense) I had infertility issues in my 20's/30's and was diagnosed with PCO's. Luckily I have 2 beautiful daughters. I had severe gas every time I would eat. I have had a problem with memory loss and migraines! Right now I am fighting my way through an accidental glutening and experiencing nausea, headache, constipation and fatigue!:-( this is day 2 and the last time this happened it lasted 3 days!:-( I am just wondering if I need to go through the actual testing or not. My favorite symptom to lose is my achy legs which when I would see my doctor about them, she told me that I was carrying my toxins there! Now I know my toxin is gluten! I truly feel like I have been poisoning myself!!! I am also overweight in my mid section and I am hoping this will help shed some of that. Thanks in advance for any and all advice! T
