Thank you so much for getting back to me.

I don't get grey patches but eithert tiny sparkling lights in my centre vision, or sometimes what I can only describe as what looks like water on a windscreen, either in a tiny line acrross my central vision or sometimes covering a third of my central vision.  It does not obscure my vision,  I can still see but it tends to be more noticeable if I squint, i.e. putting pressure on my eyeball. It goes away afer a few minutes.

I have googled expecting to see loads of people with the same symptoms but I have found nothing.  The only thing that did seems similar was one website saying optic neuritis can cause sparkles.  If that is what I have I obviously have it very mildly.  I honestly don't think I'd be aware of it but I'm currently doing a lot of computer work and staring at black text on white - which seems to be a big trigger.  My optician says it is a type of migraine but I'm not so sure.  Has that ever been put forward as the cause for your problem?

I get tinnitus that side (hence MRI) and also tingles in my right trigeminal nerve so perhaps that side of my brain/nerves has been damaged by gluten.

I'm wondering if it might be worth my while starting a new thread.  Have you already done this yourself as I'd like to read what you wrote?

 Interesting. Hadn't heard of the trigeminal nerve before. I got regular twitching, like a trapped nerve on my face. That stopped after going gluten-free. Another one of those things I never connected till later, I was falling apart but in a state of denial as it turned out!

I now think opticians may not have the experience of this sort of stuff, certainly the one I saw didn't think of telling me to see a doctor, which I think he should've in retrospect. 

Migraines often seem to be a catch all diagnosis a bit like IBS. Something to fob people off with?

Definitely go ahead and start the thread. I haven't written anything specifically about that. I did write a big long moany thread awhile ago in which I mentioned the eyesight thing but people would've been asleep by the time I got to that bit :P

Another great gluten free menu!

A great recommendation about Cote Restaurants from Gemini has just appeared on a separate thread.  I have decided to share it here as having done a bit more homework I cannot believe what a good gluten-free menu Cote has. I am also surprised to find that we have one less than half an hour's drive away.

Here is the menu.

I have just been to Ask and had an amazing gluten-free pudding called Chocolate Etna!  Also, their risotto was delicious.

Just discovered that Mr Kipling are now doing gluten-free cakes and I found one in Tescos. If you have oat sensitivity check the labels but I have to say the Cherry Bakewell Loaf Cake is an 'Exceedingly Good Cake'!   :)

That Daim chocolate cake is on offer in Tescos at the moment. I really like it. :)

Toblerone Almondy is another good gluten free cake. 

I'd also like to say 'full marks' to Marks and Sparks (!) as I noticed that when I was preparing some ready meals  for my family the other days they stamp allergens on the removeable film on the top of the containers.

Oh dear... just reading this entry makes me realise just how much I'm relying on pre-prepared meals!

I was super excited to see this :D 

It tasted good too. Super indulgent and very nice to know there's another option for a frozen dessert to go alongside the cheesecake. Well done Tesco...

    • I can not speak for mushrooms, but I live in California.  Strawberry fields are everywhere.  All the commercial farmers use plastic.  We even pick them ourselves on several farms.  No straw.   What I would be more concerned about is pesticides.  Strawberries are ranked number 1 for the most contamination.  This is one fruit that you might want to eat as organic.   http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation-now/2017/03/10/strawberries-and-these-other-foods-have-most-pesticides/98966374/ Oh, Jane Anderson's postings are well done, but please note that she suffers from DH, so she is extremely conservative on her approach to a gluten free diet (I would be too if I had DH!).   
    • Let me add that this is a "want-be-journalist" who is trying to make a living.  (Kudos for her!).  You will note that she is selling you a few products.  Is it because she genuinely thinks they are the best products on the earth or she's getting compensated?   Want to improve your dry skin?  Get off the low fat craze and eat some good healthy fats and live in a humid climate (that is my non-medical opinion).  Maybe take fewer showers......😆 Hey, I am not knocking the author, Nicole.  My neighbor, a stay-at-home mom, makes a comfortable living submitting articles for online publishing.  She is not an expert in anything per sa y,  but it allows her to work between toddlers napping while she hangs in her PJ's.   She also gets a lot of free products to try.  
    • You don't need gluten-free makeup unless you are going to get it in your mouth.
    • I say piece of mind is priceless.  Why worry?  My foundation (a mineral) is gluten free as is my lipstick,  sunscreen and hand lotion.   I honestly know that I would have to injest a lot of lipstick 💄 in order to get a gluten reaction (per GlutenFreeWatchDog, Trish Thompson).  But I would rather not worry.  I am willing to PAY extra for it.   If a product line does not offer gluten free items, then  I will not buy it.  They lose my business.   Too bad, those companies are losing market share as there are so many people on the gluten free craze bandwagon (lucky for us who seriously have issues with gluten!) So, I am going to plug Red Apple lipstick and Gabriel Lipsticks.  They are certified gluten free.  Piece of mind.  But if you can read the small print in the drugstore without special magnifying glasses (like I need), then buy the other lipstick.  I used to buy some Maybelline (I think), but now I can not read the label and pride prohibits me from pulling out a large magnifying glass in the store (and dang...I am old and save my phone data for my teenage kid so I will not check the website or call while in the store).  And yes, I pick up the house line without bothering to screen the call and I am still alive!
