  1. Yeah I get almost the same symptoms aside from arthritis and mouth sores. I'm glad I'm not the only one! Perhaps I'm still trying to get all of the gluten out of my system as well. And it's strange, I'm not pregnant for sure so it can't be morning sickness. I think perhaps it might be the lack of food in my stomach. I usually finish eating at around 7:30/8pm at night and get up at 8:30am. So I suppose the 12 hours could do it. Thanks so much, I hope you feel better as well
  2. I definitely know how you're feeling. I'm not a veteran by any means, as it's only been a month since I was diagnosed, but I just wanted to put in my two cents. I'm going away this weekend for Thanksgiving as well. I'm excited but I'm extremely nervous and a little bit scared about it. Everyone is very supportive, but I definitely am nervous about cross contamination in the restaurant I'm going to. The best thing you can do I think is just make sure you think about what you're going to eat before you eat it. I've been tempted so many times by pumpkin pies and cookies, but then I always remember how sick they make me. Just remember that the people who are cooking your Thanksgiving meal understand how you feel and are in the same boat. Don't worry too much about them and enjoy yourself, the worst thing about being a celiac is the constant nagging in your mind that you may or may not feel sick later. Just remember to have fun and enjoy your Thanksgiving! Sometimes the worst is the worrying
  3. Hello all! I've recently been diagnosed with Celiac Disease. It's been a month since I found out and I've been doing very well with not eating gluten. The classic symptoms I had were an upset stomach - mostly in the small intestine area - and feeling nauseous. But lately I've been getting headaches, I've had a sore throat for almost two weeks now and I sometimes get a nauseous feeling. I've been eating gluten-free foods for a month now. Does anyone else get these symptoms? Or since it's flu season perhaps I'm getting the flu? It's getting really frustrating and it's making me really depressed. It's hard to talk to my friends about it and I've had to cancel on almost all plans because of either my headache and nausea or because of my stomach. Also, does anyone else feel nauseous in the morning? I usually need to sit in the shower for 20 minutes in the morning before I can function well. Perhaps I should get checked for another allergy? Thanks so much guys, this has been really hard for me and I appreciate anything you have to say -- even if just having similar symptoms!
