Wow! Suddenly Feel Better Than Ever Before!

9 posts in this topic

Started to feel an improvement a couple of weeks ago but for a week now I've felt better than at any point in my life! I keep thinking,' this is how other people feel, I had no idea!' I'm staying awake all day and evening, I'm walking every day, no aches, palapatations or numbness/tingling. I've even worked a day as a receptionist at the place where I go for massage, reiki and reflexology.

I had to finally give up my well-paid job as a social worker due to intimidation,bullying and threatened disciplinary action by senior management due to my illness. This was the first I'd worked since May, with the exception of one week when I went back to work against GP's advice to try and prevent disciplinary action. I was so ill, I put in my resignation the following week. It felt good to be out for the day. I'm now going to work a day a week and if I continue in good health I can increase this.

We travelled about 250 miles each way to visit my daughter at the weekend and I stayed awake for both journeys. My husband and I are so happy about this - it's a first. Normally I can't stay awake on any journey longer than 45 minutes. :D

I'm so happy for you (& everyone else who has improved!) I have a friend with a host of problems: fibromyalgia, herniated/bulging discs, scoliosis, gastro problems, etc. She has to take 50,000 units of Vit D daily! She was blood tested for celiac but it was negative. However I still begged her to go gluten-free & she finally did. Within 2 weeks the severe head/neck pain she has every single day of the yr has diminished, and her gastro problems are gone. I told her she will continue to improve. I almost feel like a Dr. b/c my advise helped. ; ) So to everyone you all will continue to improve, some more slowly than others

I wish you all the best!

I would like to know how long you guys were having day to day problems before you started feeling better. I think it would be helpful to others too.

I first started attending GP and hospital 3 years ago with debillitating fatigue. I'd had trouble with bowels, bloating, palpitations and joint aches all my life and just thought that everyone was the same and so never sought medical advice about these. I was finally diagnosed on 6th May this year and initially did not experience any improvement. At the end of August - beginning of September I started having good days/bad days. About 2/3 weeks ago I stopped having bad days and for the past week I have felt better than at any time in my life.

Hope this is the information you were looking for.

Silencio - I've not had such a dramatic recovery but I can tell you that I do feel much better than I used to. My recovery was quite rough as I felt rather worse before I got better. After about eight months, I started figuring out my additional intolerances (soy, corn and FODMAPs) and that really helped. If you're not feeling better yet, keep looking for answers.

Navigator - glad to hear you're doing so well!

My improvement has continued and I'm still working one day every week. It feels really good to be working all day and still feel okay at the end of the day - and I now get my treatments at half-price as I work every week :)

    • Your getting plenty of proteins for once and I would drop the L-glutamine supplement what brand is it? Paleo Protein as in the brand? They were not gluten free last I checked, I got sick from it 2 years ago or so when they changed to a non dedicated facility.
    • Very interesting. However, my positive on the DGP test is on the combined assay. When separated into IGA and IGG they are within normal range. Twice the IGA was a point or two above normal range, which can be easily disregarded per University of Chicago.  Much of the research done on NCGS is showing activation of cells which are different then in celiac. Placing it still in a gluten related illness spectrum, but an entirely different kind of mode of transport, if you will, then celiac disease. Odd, because I am pretty sure I read that 1st degree relatives of celiacs have a higher prevalence of NCGS suggesting it is, in part, that they are related. But I cannot recall where I read that.  I think my specialist doc is following the right track given that all of this began at the tail end of a 6 week challenge in 2015/16 and I have an increase in IELs.  which, as I've stated before, is a very non-specific finding however. Symptoms continued On a gluten free diet for me months after.  however I was only on it for that 3 months after they found some inflammation. So maybe I didn't give it long enough.  Or like I said, maybe it's something else. We shall see! 
    • Thank you for your replies, everyone! It was very helpful. I don't think I am comfortable with passing the whole gluten introduction diet again and getting that rash. Or, even getting the rash on my face flared up again. It actually might be a good thing I got 'glutened' at that bd party so I could finally make connection with all the symptoms. As I thought back about my 'allergy' rashes I start wondering if it could be related to gluten all those years but no one even suspected. For example, at some point I started getting itchy rash around my knees, spreading down to ankles (front of the legs) in summer. The dermatologist and GP said it is 'sun allergy'. The usual allergic treatments helped for the itch and the patchy scales slowly healed but it flared up on the same place during the summer multiple times. The strange thing is that it never flared up when I went hiking, or walking in the sun in the city (I have extremely low vit D levels and I need to supplement, so it was no-no to stay completely covered no matter the rash...I needed my natural vit D). The rash only appeared after beach visits. At some point I started washing and drying my skin with a towel every time I went out from the sea, the rash still appeared but I was able to control it so it showed up on day 4-5 when vacation was almost over. Then, last summer after I was completely gluten and dairy free for approximately 9-10 months, and I was annoyed of washing my skin each and every time and getting those weird looks on the beach, I stopped doing it. I was prepared with medicine and creams for that rash but guess what - my 'sun allergy' was mysteriously gone. Not a single blister, not a patch of itchy skin, nothing. Another 'allergy' case of mine is that I found from my own bad experience I got very bad rash from red dyes (in food or cosmetics). If it is food it shows on my face, if it is cosmetics (soaps, perfumes)...whenever I applied it. I am now reading that people with dh should stay away from red dyes. Mere coincidence? I don't know, I am more and more suspicious I could have this DH thing going on for years, if that is DH. I am just annoyed that all the dermatologists I went to during all those years never made connection. No one even suspected. It was the usual path - cortisone creams, pills, etc. At some point cortisone creams were no longer working so they started prescribing some mixtures made in the pharmacy specifically for me with sulfur. That worked like a charm but I couldn't walk around all covered in white cream looking like a mummy (long sleeves in summer here where I live and summer = 35-38 C, is not fun). Then, I tried homeopathy....it worked like a charm but of course those rashes kept appearing and disappearing, I was only able to control the itchy skin so I don't scratch, scratch, scratch...looong, long journey! Sorry about my rant...and, one more time thank you everyone who found the time to reply and share your opinion! Much appreciated!
    • Found this old thread when researching for my daughter who might be having an endoscopy in September. I'm curious to know what the results were?
    • Actually "flour" is not a common ingredient in soy sauce.   Accusing a manufacturer of "lying" about ingredients is a serious charge.  If you actually have proof that this company is not listing ingredients, you should report it to the FDA.
