  1. It does help Pac, thank you. I'm sorry that you have so many intolerances. Hopefully, rice isn't an issue for me. I think it is uncommon to have a rice intolerance so I'm crossing my fingers. I'm just praying that what I'm going through right now is gluten and/or casein withdrawal.
  2. Hey guys and gals, I have been suffering from suspected food intolerances for 6 months now with chronic severe brain fog, lightheadedness, dizzy spells, depression, and dysautonomia (chronic orthostatic intolerance). I've gone on an elimination diet and that means no gluten or casein (among other things). I've been on the diet for 5 days now and feel much worse since starting. In the first couple days I maybe felt a little tiny bit better but now I feel like hell. I'm not sure if this is some kind of gluten/casein withdrawal or what but I am at the end of my rope. I don't know how much more of this I can take. Maybe 5 days isn't long enough to see progress but I lose hope very easily. I just want to get better. Any support/information is greatly appreciated. Thanks
  3. I, too have orthostatic intolerance. It and my severe brain fog are my major symptoms. I've been on an elimination diet (nothing but rice/olive oil/grilled chicken) for 5 days now but things seem steady or possibly worse. I think it could be gluten/casein withdrawal. Anyone here successfully conquer their orthostatic symptoms by eliminating certain foods?
  4. Hey Johan, Thanks for the reply. It's great to know that someone else has experienced the same symptoms. The dysautonomia is especially rare it seems. That's great that your brain fog lifted after only 2 days gluten free! I am 5 days in and I actually feel worse. I think I could be going through withdrawal and I'm just hoping that I'll feel better within a week or two. I guess it just depends on the person. I'm very envious Hey Mushroom, Not to be rude, but I mentioned in the very beginning of my post that I had been tested for Celiac Disease and it was negative. I have very few GI symptoms and when I do, they are all upper GI symptoms. The majority of people who are intolerant to gluten do not have "true" Celiac Disease. Some people, like Johan and I, have purely neurological symptoms. And it absolutely sucks...
  5. Hi all, My first post here. First, I tested negative for Celiac Disease. I do think, however, that I am sensitive to gluten nonetheless. I have little to no G.I. symptoms. All of my symptoms are neurologically based. The main ones are... -Horrible brain fog (this is the main symptom) -Occasional migraine-like headaches -Fatigue -Dysautonomia (chronic orthostatic hypotension) -Loss of hunger (when its really bad) -Dizziness I've decided to start on an elimination diet and eat plain rice for a week or so. Then hopefully I'll see some improvement. I'm just wondering if anyone else out there has experienced a similar set of symptoms and could tell me their story. I'm wondering if this is 100% curable and how long it might take to get appreciably better. Thanks for your time and consideration.
