  1. I used to try lactaid pills and they would allow me to eat/drink milk products at that moment and I wouldn't feel too bad, but at 4am I would wake up with terrible cramps and D. After this happening everytime, I finally realized it is not worth that ice cream sandwich or glass of milk anymore. I hope they work for you, I really do! I've been lactose intolerant for years, as soon as I would finish the glass of milk, the roof of my mouth would hurt and swell and feel raw, then it progressed to bm then on and on. But anyways. They just didn't work for me but thank goodness we are all different huh?
  2. I have only recently started a gluten free diet, and boy it's nice to feel better. Not 100% but any bit is better. I have been lactose intolerant for years. I know within a minute if i have eaten gluten. Major headache between my eyes, brain fog (I just learned that's what I've been having), and then within an hour or so bm/cramping for days and days.
  3. This is my first time to this forum so forgive me if I seem like I don't know a thing about celiac. I was diagnosed about 2 years ago by a biopsy and really wasn't given much information. I know that I have had a problem for at least 20 years (I'm 33 now). To make a long story short...haven't done a gluten-free diet at all...just started reading up on it....I have really bad symptoms which I know I have to do my part to stop the damage and I plan on it starting now...my question is... can having gluten in your diet cause you not to be able to concentrate? Some days are terrible. I ate a blueberry muffin this morning, got a terrible stomach ache...all of the normal symptoms...running to the bathroom....but I've noticed that I have had a terrible time concentrating. Just curious, maybe I'm just getting older. I've noticed the bad concentration usually comes when I have all of the other symptoms. I will try to educate myself more by reading up on the forum and I really am going to start now on getting better. Thanks for your time and comments.
