  1. So Sunday night 72 hours after ingestion of gluten i developed a hives type of rash. It got worse last night and started lightening up this morning a bit? Has anyone had this latent of symptoms of a rash or should I be looking for another antagonist of my symptoms.
  2. I feel like I'm in your boat. Low Vitamin D, recent onset. I've been through a gambit of testing with no positive from the Drs on anything. My 24 hour stool was showing some fat malabosorbtion but not all. My biopsies came back normal. I have a couple of other symptoms like shaking, flush of the skin, sweating. I also have trouble focusing and going to work. The Drs. have me on a myriad of phsych drugs that keep anxiety at bay that I now have from being sick for so long. They've even started me on acid blockers for dmg to my esophagus that I wasn't aware of. We should try and stay in touch, it seems like its going to be gluten for me since i did the gluten chanllenge and I'm now suffering for the 3rd day straight after being gluten free for 6 weeks. But if not I'm still wanting to explore all options, turn every stone. Vip
  3. I'll try and keep this short. I was diagnosed with IBS a long time ago and several things were always tried with little to no success. About 3 months ago I started having lots of visible shaking and feeling fluish all over, with nausea and the usual ibs diareah. Including some sweating episodes where I would just sweat profously mainly on my face. After several visits to the ER and multiple rounds of Psychicatric drugs, we started doing some tests. One of the thoughts was Celiac. So I went gluten free. The Drs did the blood test with not much to show for it. I'm still trying to get a copy. After about 3 weeks I finally got an endoscopy done. I had been gluten free at this point for that period of time if not longer. The response I got was Mast cells were slightly elevated in my intestinal tract and that the villi didnt show signs of damage. The GI tells me that I can start eating gluten again when I feel up to it. I tried eating gluten this thanksgiving with my family (stuffing and apple pie). after about 3 to 4 hours of eating I "crashed" started flushing, sweating, and shaking all over again. 3 days later I felt good this morning but feel very run down and "shaky" like i have low blood sugar tonight. Even though I know if I test it I wont have low blood sugar. I've tried to keep eating healthy foods I havent touched glueten again for those days. Do you guys feel like this could be Gluten Sensitivity? Is it usual for the effects to linger around so much and treat you like a roller coaster where part of the day you feel good then part of the day you fell like your going to pass out? Vip.
