  1. 4 months ago I was diagnosed with Celiac disease and have slowly been getting better. I just have one question about something that has happened to me about 4 times now and it happened again yesterday. I start out with stomach pain and gas, then my vision gets kind of blurry (hard to focus on one thing especially on the computer screen), my eyes get watery especially my left one, then I get light headed and feel like I am going to black out, then I start shivering uncontrollably for about an hour, and then it pretty much goes away. The last two times this has happened I realized that I had eaten ice cream the day before and I am allergic to milk. I have been on a stick gluten free diet for the last 4 months. My only doubt is that I live in Guatemala and recently ate steak which has MSG in it. I am not sure if the MSG here has gluten in it or not. Anyways, does anyone have any ideas about what could be wrong. My thyroid was tested and it is normal. The test I had done were for T3 - 1, T4 - 7.8, and TSH - 2.22 which all are normal. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Another thing is that my body temperature today is 97.7 and when I start shaking I feel like I am cold and start sweating.
  2. Thanks for the encouragement! Sometimes I feel like I am better and then all of a sudden I feel like I fall back a step or two. I have now gone almost six weeks without gluten and milk, beans, and eggs (my other allergies), nevertheless I am sure that something gets in every now and then. It has been quite a struggle to keep it all out. However, my back is feeling better today (no pop). Thanks again.
  3. I am now thinking that the lower back pain comes after I drink pop. I have drank cola and orange pops and it seems to bother me the same. Has anyone heard about lower back pain (heat sensation) being connected with carbonation or caffeine?
  4. I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease exactly two weeks ago and have taken gluten completely out of my diet. Well 6 days later I started to get a heat sensation in my lower back when I lay down flat on my back. I wouldn´t say it hurts but it is like a burning sensation inside my lower back. It´s not hot to the touch. I can feel it a little bit when I am standing up but it is more intense when I am laying flat on my back. Has anyone else experienced something like this related to Celiac Disease? Thanks.
