  2. @Adam_Bhatti please fix the goal keepers and the over powered shooting. Far too easy to score. Last years keepers were perfect.

  3. Hi Can someone list me some sweets and crisps that are gluten and dairy free? I am really struggling to find any sweets and crisps that are okay for me to eat, I am in the UK. Thanks
  4. Yeah it does sounds like you could well be celiac or sensitive to gluten. I had pretty much all the symptoms you have described before going gluten free. The best thing you could do is go to the doctor and see what they say. Most doctors don't seem to be clued in when it comes to food allergies so if they don't help you should definitely try a gluten free diet and see how you feel after a couple of weeks. Be sure and let us know. Good luck (:
  5. Hi folks I am self diagnosed Celiac and have been on a strict gluten free diet since March of this year. I am feeling a hell of a lot better than I did before I started the diet. Within 2 days of stopping gluten I felt like a totally different person. I was in a really bad way for a long time. I am so grateful that I managed to work out what my problem was. Anyway.... I was wondering if it would be a good idea to go to the doctors and get my vitamin levels checked. Is it likely I will still be low on certain vitamins even though I am feeling better? I wouldn't say I feel 100% yet and still get some weird symptoms like small muscle twitches and stinging eyes. Any help/advice would be great Thanks
  6. My Story

    Hi folks. Just recently self diagnosed with Celiac disease about 2 weeks a go and thought I would share my story with everyone. For the last 5+ years I have been feeling very strange and have suffered loads of back and nerve pain, muscle stiffness, cracking joints, anxiety, depression, brain fog, stuffed nose, blurry vision, negative thoughts, heart palpation's, terrible rib cage pain, muscle tremors and loads of other very vague symptoms. Symptoms would all come and go until about a year a go when things started to get worse and the symptoms became more persistent. Every day I would wake up and feel like something else was wrong with me and I couldn't understand why. My legs felt like led and I could no longer play sports properly without injuring myself or feeling exhausted after a couple of minutes. The real sign was when I started getting various types of stomach problems, bloating, gas, constipation and sometimes diarrhea etc. I went to the doctor and he said I had "gastritis" which I knew was a load of rubbish! Anyway.... I was fed up of feeling ill so I decided to do some research on the internet and started reading about Celiac Disease. It was so obvious that was what I had so I decided to go gluten free asap and hey presto, all my symptoms disappeared in about 48 hours and I felt AMAZING!! They have only come back a few times when I have eaten something I shouldn't have. I got caught out the other night when I ate some beetroot. Who would have thought beetroot would contain gluten! Within 10 minutes of eating the beetroot all my symptoms reappeared. At least it confirmed I had made the right diagnosis. I am still in shock because I feel so good now and I actually feel like my life is worth living again. There must be so many people out there who have the disease and just don't know it and maybe never will. Luckily I am only 25 so I still have plenty time to get back playing sports and living life again properly What symptoms did you have and how did you get diagnosed? Cheers
