thinking to much isn't a bad thing, however the rest of it can be celiac based.

Yeah, changing everything you eat is scary. However, most people can eat meat, vegetables, and fruit which they have been eating. For almost everything you can find substitutes. Work to make the changes, but give yourself time to adjust.

Sorry, you were surprised by this news, but glad you found out while there was time to heal. Yes,

you might have no energy,

it might be hard to think,

you may be foggy.

or have extreme fatigue,

but the disease is controlable. You can begin to heal.

Oh, I have night sweats, but I don't know if they are celiac related.

I would like to hear more of your story if you have the strength now. Otherwise over time you can heal.

My story in on the blog section of the forum. You can click on more in the upper left and click on blogs. I am desperateladysaved. The post "Back from Nowhere' tells the beginning of my story.

I hope you will be feeling better and better as time goes on.***

Yes to all of the above. Whenever I get glutened, I get night sweats, have foggy thinking, no energy, etc. I hope you decide to adopt a very restrictive gluten-free diet. You won't be sorry! Welcome to your new feeling of wellness!

The night sweats may be due to a Vit D deficiency, which would not be surprising if you have celiac.

Welcome to the forum, Ezzeryen. I'm not really sure what you're saying here.

    • I've still got slow transit time, and have to work pretty hard to be regular. My last colonoscopy my doc complained about things not being very cleaned out. I had a horrible time with the prep. Thought everyone did till I spoke to my husband about his experience, and he's had a bunch of them. I have my big 50 colonoscopy coming up in December... any tips or tricks on making the prep more pleasant or work better so the doc doesn't yell at me again? (He almost stopped the procedure. I was pretty out of it but I do remember the angry tone of his voice.)
    • One of the toughest things about purging gluten from your diet is the change in taste you'll undoubtedly experience. Since gluten-free breads are baked without the benefit of the almost magical baking properties of gluten, finding a practical – and tasty – substitute can certainly be ae a challenge.

    • Your spleen is on your left side, and is part of your lymphatic system (deals with fighting infections etc.). So not surprising or unreasonable for there to be some pain here due to swelling in response to gluten exposure. I also get this as well. When I first starting having severe symptoms, I actually thought I had mono because of this. Now I only get it if glutened. As a side tip, I'd say avoid any pizza from a restaurant, even if they proclaim it to be gluten-free. All of their toppings, sauces and surfaces are likely highly contaminated from making and preparing the regular pizza bases. Hope you feel better!
    • Omg that sounds divine! Thank you!
    • @Jmg For sure. I think whatever one's consensus is on the validity of gluten causing problems for those diagnosed with NCGS, one has to admit that these people do have a real problem, even if it's one we don't fully understand. Articles like this do a disservice to that fact, which as you say is nuanced. There are also other autoimmune diseases that seem to respond to the GFD for reasons that we don't understand either. It's also problematic as from reading that one-line asterisk on celiac disease, people come down very hard on people who lack a formal diagnosis, not realizing that this is the majority of those with celiac disease. I'm in this camp and so I avoid providing the more nuanced "various doctors I have seen are about 99% sure that I have celiac disease, but I don't have a positive biopsy/blood because the gluten challenge would kill me." If I tell people that I am not taken seriously, despite the fact that many serious medical conditions are diagnosed purely on the basis of described symptoms and response to specific medications for that disease.
