Sorry to hear about the vitamin issues, in the same boat myself. Finding the root cause of the acid reflux and not just covering up the symptoms with medication is the most important thing you can do. Unfortunately the majority of conventional doctors will send you away with PPI's no matter what symptoms you're having so you need to be assertive and attempt to find out WHAT is causing the acid reflux so you can determine the right approach. As you've experienced yourself these drugs taken over the long haul will only add to your problems (unless you have an ulcer, which they can then help the healing process by stopping the acid.) There are many changes you can make like eating smaller meals, avoiding acidic foods like tomatoes, coffee, etc, and you could try taking a tablespoon of Braggs Apple Cider Vinegar diluted in water with every meal. This helps increase production of acid in the stomach which is what you want so that food is properly digested. The action of PPI's kills the stomach acid therefore leading to a low production, and the problems eventually snowball :(

As far as a good gluten free multi, I'd recommend Country Life Liquid Multi-vitamin. It's the one I was recommended when I first came on here 9 months ago and it was a huge help in regaining my energy and helping the healing process. It's very complete and if purchased online it's about 15-20 dollars which is good considering you'll get a month or so out of it.

I have been on 2 Prilosec a day for over a year & half. Knowing how bad they can be for you over the long haul I have tried to wean off but every time the acid has become so much worse, feels like pure acid pouring down my throat. Three weeks ago I started to take pure liquid Aloe, 2 oz two x's a day and have weaned down to just one Prilosec a day. So far.... feeling good and no acid! Almost afraid to cheer too loudly but it may be working and I would rather be doing something natural. Figured i would give it a month before starting to wean off of the 1 Prilosec a day. Maybe Aloe would help you. The health food store suggested it to me.

Thanks Syl

I get alot of info about Celiac, but generally there are no specifics as to what really works. My doctor took a blood sample to see if I have B-12 deficientcy, but also schudled me an appointment with a neuro guy. I would have rather found out about the B-12 before going to another Dr who may or may not know about Celiac. Ah such is life.

Well Cap6 I have just invested in a supplement drink that is supposed to be loaded with good things for Celiacs, but it looks and tastes like sludge and is a funky green color. lol So I guess aloe is probably not something I would add right now but thanks for the input. P

    • Consider Graves Disease.  My mother struggled with it.  She did not have all the classic symptoms of Graves, but she did end up with permanent eye damage (she sees double).  My cousin had it even more severe.  Besides eye muscle pain, she had the classic eye budge (Grave’s affects the muscles in the eye and/or other muscles in the body producing weakness). I have have Rosacea, but it presented  as Ocular Rosacea and not on my face.  My Hashi’s first presented with thyroid enlargement.  I was never cold, lost hair or gained a pound.  My celiac disease presented as anemia with none of the classic GI issues.  What I am saying is that Autoimmune Issues can have various symptoms and are often systemic.   There was a point where I was having thyroid swings.  When hyper my eye muscles hurt.  Scared me because my mom was pretty much forced to give up working.  So...... Do not mess with your eyes.  Get checked by an ophthalmologist.  
    • My son was diagnosed celiac in May 2017 and been gluten free since April. He still has mucus in his bowel movements even though he eats gluten free only. Has anyone else got these symptoms.  Going to the Dr tomorrow as getting  no answers off his paediatrician. I am wondering if he got intolerance to something else as well. 
    • Hi there. I've had ongoing issues with my eyes for a few months now, including pain in my eye orbit, swelling over and under my eyes, dry, wrinkled and flaking under eye skin that comes and goes. I thought that I was allergic to mascara that I had just purchased; that seemed to be when my symptoms began. I'm presently I'm thinking that I have blepharitis. I'm also wondering about Sjorgens syndrome. I have an appointment with my ophthalmologist in a few weeks (my GP told me to put vaseline around my eyes-thanks for nothing!). I'm practicing good eyelid hygiene and have noticed an improvement in just a day! Maybe you can check into those? Good luck to you!
    • I am feeling this right now! It just started and has been going for 15 minutes or so. I just ate some jalapenos, so it could be spicy food related!
    • Seriously check my list Simple Mills, grain free corn free mixes, Enjoy Life, is corn free also but uses a bunch of starches and grains, I listed a rice/cavassa tortilla on there, I listed coconut wraps as alternatives also and those are grain free. I also listed alternatives go gluten free and corn free tortilla chips......I have a corn allergy, like 100F+ fever and blood blisters forming in my mouth, stomach, intestines, and if I touch the stuff I break out in a poison ivy like rash.
