  1. Nauseated And Reflux

    I had nausea and acid reflux really bad. It got so bad, I'd wake up in the middle of the night with it in my throat. At that time, I didn't even make the connection with Celiac even though I got a diagnosis for my first autoimmune disease. I would sleep sitting up it was so bad. I stopped eating 4 to 5 hours before sleeping and took prescribed meds to control the reflux. It was the only way I got relief. Of course, now with another AI disease and discovering the connection with Celiac, I'm now gluten free. The nausea and reflux has subsided. I'm new to understanding celiac disease. The advice GFinDC gave looks pretty good. I hope you feel better soon.
  2. I won't be surprised if turns out I have celiac disease, too. It makes sense when I consider my history.
  3. Thank you for sharing your experience. I think it may turn out that way.
  4. Thank you for your response. I'm hoping with it being such a short time it won't be necessary.
  5. does anyone here have experience with multiple autoimmune diseases? I have two and am being tested for celiac. just wanted to know your experiences and hopefully recovery after going gluten free. Thnx. I have Graves' Disease
  6. Hi, I'm new here. I recently was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease, my second one. I decided at that point, based on articles I had read, to go gluten free. I was doing pretty good for about a month. But did start eating gluten again on Thanksgiving (and after). I started to have localized swelling and nose bleeds (which could have been the meds I'm taking but blood work looked good, doctor is unsure what's causing my symptoms). My new GP decided to have me tested for Celiac Disease, had blood work done this morning. So will me going off and on gluten like that change the results? Thanks.
