Thanks so much for your reply. I am just not prepared to go through the medical procedures required to confirm I have it. I will just have to be satisfied in knowing that I feel better avoiding gluten. My wife recently began working with a gal that does have full blown, and did have the biopsy and everything, and now she is passing lots of advice to me through my wife. Your experiances do seem to be similar to mine. I have the mental stuff and the tingly fingers too! AS you know, there are just SO many side effects, it easy to confuse it with any number of other diseases/food intolerances. Thanks again and keep up the good work!
I figure the eggs are ok because at the store they're not enclosed, rather in an open cooler. I also have raw eggs in there as well. Do you think those are ok? They felt cold but not as cold as if I was home. Same with the hard boiled eggs.
I know this is silly question but I have used Dermorganic Hair Spray for so many years. I am having trouble finding it to purchase at a reasonable price. Is there anyone that can recommend a good aerosol hairspray that is gluten free? Thank you.
It makes me feel better knowing I am not alone in this. Gluten sensitivity/celiac seems to effect women more than men too. Your experiance sounds a lot like mine. Besides trying to figure out what foods were causing my problems, I am getting older, and have developed mild arthritis. I was also diagnosed with adult A.D.D. many years ago. As you know, both are symptoms of celiac! I also began a new high stress career at the same time my symptoms began. So confusing. I guess that's why its called 'The great imitator'. One bright light is the fact a lot more gluten free foods are coming out now, and some of them are actually quite good! Thanks again and please keep in touch, possibly through Facebook. BTW I see you are in the UK. My heart goes out to those poor young gals in Manchester and their parents. I have a young daughter as well.
