Hello Barara, I think that celiacs is a constant journey. Febrauary 28th will be my one year anniversary that I have been gluten-free. There have been good days, and bad days. The bad days are depressing, fustrating and scary. On those days when you're feeling crummy, you just want to wrap yourself in your home, and not see or hear anyone.

I also learned that most celiacs have other allergies. Maybe because of the damage that was done to our intestines. I finally went to see an allergist/nutrtionist. My list of allergies goes on and on. Hopefully one day when I am healed, I will be able to enjoy those foods again.(except gluten, of course) I couldn"t figure out why one day I would be ok then the next I felt like I did on day 1. I wanted to pull my hair out( whats left of it :unsure: ) Maybe a ND would be able to help you too.

Hang in there, you are not alone :)

While I don't have specific answers for you, I do have a few ideas for things to look into.

Here are some items I'd check into if it were me (all of which are documented to bother people):

Gas leaks

Compact fluorescent lighting

Fumes from carpeting, upholstery or paint

Mold (including from potted house plants)

Tobacco smoke or other pollutants from neighboring homes

Radon or other naturally occurring gases

Pollen, dust, or dust mites

Ultrasonic pets repellers (can be from neighboring homes)

HTH

have you spoken to a doctor about depression? I know it sounds like a scary word, but, depression cuases physical pain and is usually linked with things like fibro...you should go to your dr and explain your symptoms instead of hiding. Also, when have you last had blood work and things tested about your lupus? because, if you are eating gluten-free you should not really be having gluten problems. go to your doctor! also, maybe journal your symptoms for a week, what happens when you eat, how you phsyically feel, how you mentally feel. You don't have to suffer by yourself! And, sometimes, as much as we all love men, they just don't get it!

Since you're living in a new home, I'd suspect something like chemicals - the chemicals in the carpet, paint, etc. A slight possibility of mold. Or maybe something weird with the electrical wiring. I've read some stuff about electrical emissions on the human body. Dimmer switches emit a lot, if you have electronics like you clock too close to your head when you're sleeping it might cause a problem.

Yeah, I agree with the others. If you are doing better outside of your home, then you should get your home tested. I know where I live, radon is a huge issue, especially in new communities. A friend of mine put in a bid on a townhouse that is no more than 2 or 3 years old, and the radon levels were unreal. Apparently, this is a common problem throughout the neighborhood, which has thousands of houses in it.

Not to say that radon specifically is your problem, but many people in that community live with that every day and have no idea. So, I would most definitely check into the list the other poster gave. Your home is supposed to be the one place you know you can feel good in. I hope you can figure it out soon!

On the other hand, I am glad you are feeling better so you can enjoy your time with your family! :lol:

    • I would have bouts of discomfort and nausea after eating certain foods, but I always assumed that it was because I was eating garbage like corn dogs and etc. Did you ever have any symptoms of vitamin deficiencies like angular chelitis? I had this in high school all of the time, and when I tried to scratch it off my lips would get all red and it looked like I was wearing lipstick (I'm a guy you can probably understand how embarrassing this was). I went to the doc to get a b12 shot twice and most of my current symptoms cleared up, but it was temporary. I don't remember anything else besides having diarrhea often which I always figured was just because of my unhealthy diet.
    • I do not think anyone was discussing " formed chicken" here.  Obviously, that is a different food than plain fresh chicken.
    • Dermatitis Herpetiformis  can manifest itself in lesions anywhere, not just elbows and knees.  I have it and although gluten free, I still have severe itching and little bumps that itch.  I don't have the lesions any more, but itching can drive a person mad.  the bumps can be on buttocks, shoulders, etc.  Dapsone is the standard treatment, if you are not allergic.  I also use topical prescription creams.  I take 2 Zyrtec a day and benedryl at night.  Benedril spray helps with temporary relief.  Also am on hydroxyzine and doxepin.  Sometimes steroids like prednisone help, but can ruin ones blood sugar counts.  I use Grandma's Baking Soda soap.  Straw may certainly be a factor.  I must be coming in contact with a trigger of some kind even though I'm very careful about my diet.  Change your dermatologist and get a specialist in DH.  I went for years with all kinds of stomach and bowel issues and was 69 years old before being correctly diagnosed.  Don't let anyone tell you it's your imagination!
    • I can not help you except to offer some emotional support.  You are not crazy!  You can get glutened on a farm.  Here is a study: http://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJMc063112#t=article This topic has come up before: Hugs!      
    • I know I got glutened after handling some straw last year helping out decorating at the farmers market then going to eat something without washing my hands. I later learned it was wheat straw, some of them still had the heads on them and everything. Gave that area wide walk around after that, I did not have much issues with inhalation with it. But if your there with a thrasher running, down wind during the harvest.......I imagine it might be hell if your super sensitive. If you get skin reactions that easily from it I guess taking a vacation during harvest? Try staying indoors, dust mask, long sleeves and pants hope for the best.......I am just throwing some ideas out there. Maybe someone can help a bit more.
