I have been grain free for nearly a month. My family is not on board. I just noticed yesterday that being in my kitchen makes me dizzy. yes, I was washing dishes, cleaning up flour, and moving loaves of bread in the pantry. I felt better when I went outside.

It may be time for a family meeting? Being exposed to flour, which can be inhaled, or on your hands which rub an eye, nose, or touch your mouth can be very dangerous to you. It can be enough to start the immune response cascade. Family members need to know how dangerous gluten is to you, and be very careful to keep it cleaned up and away from any of your foods/food prep area.

You need to treat flour and gluten containing items like they're poison..because they are! :o Every exposure will cause you damage, and will not only keep you from healing, but could lead to additional health problems. It's nothing to fool around with. This is serious stuff.

Thanks, I have asked for a family meeting. I was refused as I have ended up with negative behaviour such as crying and yelling in the past. I also have suggested a 3 month trial for all the family. I think it likely that my children have inherited one of my 4 of 4 gene alleles that predisposed me to gluten problems. I just don't seem to get through to them. I have been asked not to talk about it. Yet, my husband did send me the address for this forum.

But I expect it won't be like this forever. I am hoping for outward symptoms. I have begun to drop weight and feel very different, but will it show? And will they not think it is just because I quit eating. Don't worry I am eating and enjoying my food besides.

I am sorry that your family is being difficult. Keep out of the kitchen if it makes you sick. They can clean up their own messes. You can set up your own kitchen somewhere with a dorm fridge, microwave and toaster oven. I stayed sick a long time waiting for my family to get on board. They did eventually, but meanwhile I stayed sick.

I was feeling that spinny head thing in the kitchen yesterday morning. I looked in my essential oil book and tried to find one for dizziness. I failed to find an oil for it, that I had, so I picked peppermint because it was good for allergies. I diffused it in the kitchen and my dizziness has not been a problem since

I have to say that it's hard for me to imagine that moving loaves of bread, especially if they're wrapped, would make you sick, but cleaning up flour is something I simply refuse to do.

I think it may be the yeast in the bread rather than the gluten, but all I need is a wiff.

    • Lex_, Again I am afraid Ennis_Tx is right here. Ennis_tx eats right and is eating all the right things and still has to take/supplement with Magnesium. The magnesium is a clue?  We need magnesium to make energy. I like to say as chlorophyll is to photosynthesis for the plant so is Magnesium for/to the Animal(s). Meaning we will run down without it. It is said "we waste away without enough Magnesium" Dr. Carolyn Dean wrote the book "The Magnesium Miracle" because people genuinely feel terrific when they take it. they are able to make energy again and function properly but the question remains  why? are we low in it the first place if we need it so much. Iron plays the same role in the blood/respiration but people still get IDA. It turns out low stomach acid limits our ability to absorb Magnesium and Iron. see this link about the role of gastric acid in Iron absorption. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/7286584/ How do we know this.  . . well it is has been studied and proven. look no further than the FDA box warning on PPI's entitled "FDA Drug Safety Communication: Low magnesium levels can be associated with long-term use of Proton Pump Inhibitor drugs (PPIs)" https://www.fda.gov/drugs/drugsafety/ucm245011.htm now this takes about 6 months of use to become low in magnesium but being low in stomach acid limits our ability to absorb Magnesium and why many people have to take it at 2x to 3x the RDA to get the desired effect. In fact the FDA says only stopping PPI's will reverses this condition.  Obviously  taking higher amount of Magnesium can help alleviate some of these symptom's but only raising the stomach acid will completely alleviate the condition. quoting "Although both patients' hypomagnesemia partially resolved with intravenous replacement, in both cases discontinuation of PPI treatment was necessary to stop ongoing symptoms and to stop magnesium loss." Hypomagnesimia is critically low Magnesiums akin to IDA. here is a thread about IDA and why this is so . . .  low stomach acid leads to low Iron levels. I think it will help explain why Celiac's often have to take Magnesium to help with their chronic fatigue symptom's. I hope this is helpful but when I helped my stomach acid levels my Magnesium begin to be better absorbed from the food I was eating. Nuts are good Magnesium sources especially Cashews and Almonds. So is chocolate hence Ennix_tx cocoa nibs etc. . . ***** this is not medical advice but I know taking Magnesium Citrate helped my energy levels. posterboy by the grace of God, 2 Timothy 2: 7 “Consider what I say; and the Lord give thee understanding in all things”        
    • Lots of people are diagnosed after 50 according to this https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3227015/  
    • Smaller meals throughout the day should help. I had the same problem but if it keeps up you may need to see the doctor again and get surgery. Anti-acids may help out too. It's been about 10 years since I had mine. Good luck.
    • Nobody posted anything on my profile that I'm aware of but it wouldn't let me get into it. My email got hacked though right around the same time so I just figured it was connected. I'm not exactly Y2K ready. This is the first computer I ever bought and I still have a flip phone. Maybe it's not connected. Don't really know.
