  1. My Post Disappeard

    hi I wrote a long post and I clicked post now I cant see it anywhere
  2. hi people its hard to know where to start really but im currently on day 6 of being gluten free and im just starting to feel better, im a 27 year old mother of 4, very overweight and very unwell, my illness started 3 years ago when I was first pregnant with twins I was diagnosed with a rare heart condition p.o.t.s which affected my mobility massively, anyway my twins were born lovely and healthy and are now 2 I started to notice that certain foods made my heart condition worse I suffer from dizziness and fainting ive never done any food testing before and my diet has been awful, lots of fast food, mcdonalds kfc etc, the reason is just that im totally exhausted and have no energy, and fast food has become a easy fix, I do know how bad it is btw, and I do not recommend anyone eating it, im just trying to be honest, anyway these foods became the trigger for my symptoms to become worse, then 2 weeks ago I had awful stomach pains terrible bloating toilet problems etc ive suffered from the worst headaches for about 2 months I had zero energy to the extent I couldn't leave my bed I honestly thought I might be dying, I know it sounds extreme but I cant tell you just how bad I felt, I decided to search the internet and see what was going on an my symptoms matched with celiac disease so 6 days ago I took a test BIOCARD from boots, it came back negative but I still decided to go gluten free to see what happened and I am just starting to feel better I have also been taking candida supplements as that was another probable cause but I think it could be a combination of the 2, given how poor my diet has been over the last 2 years and the way I seem to react to gluten rich foods I would be very grateful of any advice or if anyone has a similar story thankyou louise.
