  1. Looking back I've had symptoms for 20 years but I could always attribute them to something else. In January 2012 my colon had enough and shut down. I lost muscle control of my colon and needed laxatives to get any movement at all. It took about a month to diagnose it properly as celiac. I had 2 bloodiest, both negative. My doctor wasn't getting it. I decided to go gluten free, did it for a week and got back control of my colon and I felt so much better. Then I ate a hamburger and onion rings and all my symptoms came back. I consumed gluten for almost 42 years till my body said enough.
  2. My Doctor won't give me anything for the headaches so I find myself combining Tylenol and Advil to get through the pain with limited success. I'll give the chocolate a try.
  3. Has anyone else had luck with dark chocolate? I get these headaches often and can last up to two days. It affects my vision, tight neck, and the nail in the head would be an accurate description. Even traces of gluten can trigger the nail in the head.
