Been here about 2 weeks and have been doing better only 2 real bad days. The babies are 4 and 1, gluten has bound to be here but they kept a hyla water filter vacuum going quite alot. When I visited my father in Arizona i did pretty well also and was gone 10 days, ok here is the question, At home in my own home which is a new trailerhouse, I get sick almost everyday, and never feel like doing a thing, not even visiting my friends,afraid i will become ill at there house, and not be able to get home.

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:

    • Welcome!  Here is more information about a gluten challenge: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/what-is-a-gluten-challenge/ I would personally go for the maximum amount of tine and would consume as much gluten as I could tolerate 1 to 2 slices a day.  Why?  Researchers really do not know who builds antibodies fast.  Some can do it in as few as a few weeks and others take much longer.  Where do you fit?  You do not know, so considering the maximum recommendation.   Do not be horrified about your doctor googling.  That is an excellent sign, in my opinion.  My neighbor is an ER doctor.  He googles all the time and combining that with his vast medical training and work experience, allows him to quickly help patients.    There is no way a doctor can know everything about disease and treatment.   I wish you well!  
    • I have not found any that are reasonable (a gluten-free kit is available on Amazon and they want  $50 ).  Either you make the GINGERBREAD walls from scratch (gluten free)  or just use cardboard as a base and “glue”  on gluten-free gram crackers or “stucco” (fondant)  with frosting or   We never eat the end product; however, the kids consume plenty of decorations while it is assembled.  I would not recommend handling a gluten gingerbread house.  It is too crumbly and the risk for cross contamination is great.  So, make a gluten free version or create a new holiday tradition.  
    • My daughter who is 9 and newly diagnosed went on a secret gluten binge about a month ago.  I had her gluten free cupcakes in a package next to the gluten containing cupcakes.  She decided to test it out and ate 3 or 4 mini gluten filled cupcakes in about 10 minutes.   She ended up super sick and threw up a few times.  It was a good learning experience for her.  She now turns down cupcakes at parties.   I am Room Mom for her class this year and bring both gluten free and store bought for the class.
    • Looks like you tested negative on the celiac blood tests.  Who ordered the tests?  Reticulin has not been used for more than a decade.   This makes me think that your doctor may not be so celiac-savvy.  Why does that matter?  Some 10% of celiacs are seronegative.  If celiac disease is strongly suspected, a  GI might want to confirm with an endoscopy.   Also, you did not say how long your gluten challenge was before that last blood test.  A challenge requires a person to be on a gluten diet for 8 to 12 weeks: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/what-is-a-gluten-challenge/ Do you have any risk factors, like family history, another autoimmune disorder, IBS?   https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/celiac-disease/symptoms-causes/syc-20352220 It seems like the Gluten Free diet is helping your current symptoms of joint pain and rashes.  So, then you would be considered Non-Celiac Gluten Sensitive/Intolerant.  That diagnosis is done when celiac disease has been ruled out.  I can see why he recommended the gluten free diet.  You felt better!   You are going to have to decide if pursuing a celiac disease diagnosis is necessary for you.  I wish you well.
