  1. Thanks for the reply! I must say I haven't felt much difference so far, a decrease in the amount of heartburn is about all, but I'm willing to give this time! I have had a lot of the symptoms for a long time so I didn't expect the to disappear over night. Would it be a good idea to be supplementing certain vitamins and minerals? I am taking a one-a-day multivitamin but not sure if I should be taking other things too! Thanks
  2. Hi everyone! I recently began a Gluten Free diet, about a week ago. I just wanted to get some thoughts on my decision, as I'm liable to give up on things like this without some motivation and want to see if anyone else thinks this is the right way to go. My symptoms that have lead me to think that gluten might be the problem are: Brain fog - have had as long as I can remember, am 26 now, may have always been this way, never found a way to get rid of it, bad short term memory and lack of focus. Fatigue - just always tired Heartburn - this is more recent, started to get it bad about a month ago, would get it more than once a day and quite severe, this has reduced since stopping gluten but still seems to happen (although much less severely) when I eat rice. Headaches - only upon drinking milk that may last all day Depression and anxiety - comes and goes but have suffered since about 15 years old. Intolerance of caffeine - caffeine makes me feel really happy for a little bit, then I get really really tired/irritable/anxious, worsens brain fog. Alcohol makes symptoms worse especially depression/brain fog/fatigue/anxiety in the following days. Underweight - 6'1" and weigh around 140 lbs, never been able to gain weight although I eat a lot. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated Bert
