HI! I'm also looking for a gluten free support group. I am a 51 year old female with 3 sons. We are all gluten intolerant. My sons do not follow the diet (and believe me it shows) so I am mostly seeking out a support group for them!

There is a thread on Celiac Meeting Room. It has a link to a support group in Baton Rouge. I am about 2 hours away so I never attended any of the meetings. I would love to find something a little closer to home.

    • I forgot to add that I have also had an intermittent dry mouth and coated tongue.
    • I have been having a number of very strange symptoms for the past 7 weeks. It started with upper abdominal pains and discomfort that radiate to the back and sides. I then developed a light-headedness and frequent headaches. I have been having problems concentrating along with brain fog. However sometimes the head symptoms ease but then come back a few days later. My stools have not been right either. Some days they float and appear to have undigested food in them and are generally light in colour. I have also been very tired lately and my legs have been aching and have had some sharp pains in feet and hands. What is perhaps concerning me most is that I seem to be losing subcutaneous fat - my arms are very thin and bony and I am developing depressions on the sides of my thighs. I have had loads of blood tests; liver, kidney function and glucose were all normal. I have also had an MRI and my pancreatic functions and gall bladder were also normal. I have just had some more tests back for thyroid which once again was normal. I am getting increasingly concerned and am desperate for a diagnosis. I only thought of celiacs as my grandmother had it and when I looked up symptoms there were some matches. Does this sound like celiacs? This is literally the only thing that hasn't been ruled out. I am 18 years old and male. Thanks. 
    • For the poster with anxiety - Lexapro paired with a small dose of Buspar has been the only combo that has worked for me recently. I have had biopsy diagnosed celiac for about 12 years and no amount of gluten free food or supplements have helped.
