  1. Thanks all for the responses. I know it will take some time to clear up the damage that was done. My Dr. has been trying to make sure we aren't missing something else. The chest pain and heart palpitations is what worries me the most, even though I have been to 2 cardiologists and they have found nothing. I am trying very hard to eat gluten free and am actually eating better then I used to. I have lost about 10 lbs and hope to lose more as I start feeling better, exercise should get easier. Any suggestions on probiotics, supplements, etc are appreciated. I have been doing a lot of research and finding what works can be difficult. NoGlutenCooties, I live in Hunterdon County but work in Newark. I found out there is a gluten free store in Readington NJ and plan on checking it out next week. Scott
  2. Hello, I am a 44 year old male in NJ. I have been reading some other posts and they have been helpful. I wanted to post what I am going through to see if it can all be associated with Celiac Disease. Last August I started having hear palpitations, chest pain, left arm pain, some stomach discomfort, felt like I was going to pass out. This all occurred while driving home from a night shift at work. I pulled over and called an ambulance. Test at the hospital revealed no cardiac issues. Followed up with the cardiologist and had all the associated heart tests. Except for being overweight (250lbs) I was deemed fine by the cardiologist. Family physician diagnosed me with acid reflux and put me on Prilosec which helped some. I have had numerous blood test and tried several meds but still was not feeling well. Dr sent me to a GI and I had an endoscopy. The test revealed Barrets Esophagus and Celiac Disease. So for about 1-1/2 months now I have been eating gluten free. I still have the palpitations, some chest pain, arm pain, head aches, ringing in ears, pain in lower right abdomen, and head feel like it's in a fog. I was just curious if anyone else had similar problems and if it is just related to Celiac Disease how long until you started feeling better when you went gluten free? Thanks in advance for any help!
