  1. So at my Dr's suggestion of going gluten free to see if it would help with my health issues of truncal weight gain, bloating, nsusea, burping, rashes, joint pain and fatigue, i started a gluten-free diet last Friday. It went amazingly well! My bloating went down to barely noticeable, i lost 3 pounds, no stomach pain, gas or bloating etc i was thrilled! I made pizza last night using bob mills gluten-free crust mix and it is the first time for me to eat pizza snd not feeling sick or instantly ballooned tummy! After dinner, my bf offered me a strawberry twizzler, I had 2 without thought that it might gave gluten in it and within the hour, i got little white bumps on my arms, stomach and puffy look in my legs, thrn burning and tingling hands, sore tummy and nausea, swollen red lymph node on jaw line near my ear! I woke up this morning still feeling sick and bloated, bumpy and itchy. I feel depressed, how will I get through this without making mistakes? Is there a site that has a comprehensive list to type in and see if its gluten free that is accurate?
  2. Hi there, I have a few questions I'm hoping people can help me with. I had a miscarriage a year ago and within weeks of that ocurring everything went downhill health wise. I am 38, 5'6 always been skinny between 115-120 lbs. After the miscarriage, I started quickly gaining weight, went from my usual 115 to 145lbs within 6 months!! All in stomach, waist. I started getting weird rashes on my arms and torso, severe bloating, nausea, vomiting usually after eating. My stomach was never bad in the morning but my late afternoon I looked pregnant! Also dealt with joint pain, fatigue, overall puffy, jiggly feel. Constant loose, pale, smelly stool, gas, burping etc all things I never dealt with before! I could not figure out what was happening and in the last year I have had my thyroid tested numerous times, always normal, I also went to see an endocrinologist, had a pelvic ultrasound, an MRI on my stomach and testing for parasites, all clear. I was getting frustrated that no one can help me, I mentioned celiac before but my dr shunned the idea and said you know, we haves tested for everything you might have to live with not knowing! I had thoughts of celiac because although weight had never been a problem for me, slight bloating did at times. I had gone to Thailand 6 yrs ago and during that month, all I ate was fish, chicken , veggies abs rice. I was bloat free and felt amazing! This always stayed in my mind. I was talking to a naturopath acquaintance who mention that I try a gluten-free diet to see how things go. I am now on day 5 gluten-free free and I'm truly amazed . My bloating has gone down by about half, I'm down 4 lbs and no stomach pain! I'm truly hoping this is the answer and I have a feeling it is! My question is can you have a gluten allergy that did not cause too many issues then suddenly act up full force? Can a traumatic event cause this? Meaning my miscarriage?
