RobstaRob posted a topic in Celiac Disease - Coping WithI haven't been diagnosed with gluten tolerance but I'm 99.99% sure I have it. I have been through life up till 19 always fatigued, add symptoms, joint pain, anxiety, stress headaches. The doctor just said all of this is stress related, but I said there is no way. I started a gluten free diet on my own and a week later all of my symptoms diminished, I was amazed, I have felt energy that I have never had before, I can actually concentrate on things and not have anxiety for no reason. 1 month later I decided to try wheat bread just to make sure I'm right, and what do you know that night my stomach was making all these weird noises and the next day I was completely tired, this happened for another day or so. Went off gluten again and everything was great again. This time I was at a party for the 4th and decided to try to eat things I know don't have gluten in them, I said if the third time I have these symptoms that's it for eating out, I am not going to eat anything unless it is something I have fixed, it just isn't worth the risk anymore. So yesterday I must have ate something that was cross contaminated, after eating my heart was racing, just felt irritated, lips began to get sticky, eyes dry and such. Now today I'm in a brain fog and have digestion issues. My question is today I'm going to a pretty big even with my family and I don't want to be tired or in this brain fog. I have started drinking a lot of water, doing push ups and core exercises. Should I take one of my ritalin pills that I was prescribed for ADD? It does wake me up and gets me out of the brain fog while under the effects of the drug.
