  1. Has anyone ever flown with a toaster in your luggage? I have to travel for work in a couple weeks. Staff (me) are being told we have to eat at the meals provided. They have assured me that the hotel will have gluten-free meals for me. I saw the menu for breakfast, and I can't imagine it keeping me full during long meetings. There will be fruit, gluten-free cereal, gluten-free yogurt... I have issues with eggs, so eating breakfast foods while traveling is always a challenge. I was told by my nutritionist not to eat oatmeal. I'm thinking of packing my toaster in my luggage and having toast with peanut butter every day. Has anyone tried traveling with a toaster and gluten-free bread? Other suggestions? Maybe Epic bars with the breakfast offered?
  2. It was mostly stomach acid, poor food tolerance and constipation. I'm not sure how much was from the gastritis, Prilosec, or celiac.
  3. Yes. I tried taking it every day, but I had severe stomach acid and also constipation. Everything I ate hurt my stomach. I was training for a half marathon a couple weeks away, so I took a break, then restarted taking one pill every other day. After a week I started taking them every day again. After about a week, I started to feel better. It was probably two more weeks before I felt normal.
  4. I was also diagnosed with GERD and extreme gastritis when my doc found celiac. As my doc said, everything was inflamed. I was prescribed Prilosec and it was really hard to take at first. The side effects were very uncomfortable. Every time I called the doc to talk about side effects, I was told to keep taking it. Eventually, it was fine. I take it every morning and I definitely feel better. It took more than two weeks to get used to it, and I even took it every other day for a week at the start. The reason my doctor pushed it is because he said it is the best drug for extreme inflammation. Good luck!
