Hi, I currently tried a 2 month trial for gluten free. Some of my symptoms decreased heavily, but I wanted a medical diagnosis. So I've been eating gluten for about a month and quite a few of my symptoms have came back and more. The bad gas came back, bloating more, the first time trying bread again I had to rush to the toilet a few times (d) and have got it odd times. Symptoms what have came since before, fatigued, dry lips a lot more especially in the morning, heel pain,dizziness and I've developed a lump on my foot (opposite to a bonion, called a bonionette if it is that) Are these all symptoms too? Could some be a nutritional deficiency?(Bone pain?) Thanks

I had a lot of problems when I reintroduced gluten for the challenge, much worse than before. I had already been diagnosed with plantar fasciitis, which leads to heel pain, which might be worth looking at. Mine disappeared again when I went gluten-free. It returns if I get glutened. I think it is a generalized inflammation that gets us on gluten sometimes.

Good luck with the challenge, not fun. I gave up on doctor's orders after 3 weeks. I hope you get the diagnosis you want, but if you get negative tests, consider non celiac gluten intolerance. I had negative tests, including genes, so my GI diagnosed NCGI. It might be worth keeping a record of symptoms on ane off gluten, my GI used these in diagnosis.

Best wishes Mw

Hi There.

I am new to this but I just had to comment because I have similar symptoms. Have not yet been diagnosed yet, but had blood work done last week now waiting on results.

I have also been diagnosed with plantar facilis, pardon the spelling, but never really thought it could be connected. Also have dry lips too. My stomach has felt uneasy for weeks, lots of gas, having really loose stools, heartburn and acid reflex. Joint pain has been really bad lately and I have been diagnosed with a fistula.

It's just really nice I could find some others with the same kind of symptoms and its not all in my head!

Should also mention celiac disease runs in the famliy, grandmother, aunt and some cousins.

Think I should try going gluten free starting this week and see if things improve.

Anyhow sorry to ramble on.

Hey goodtime, just to let you know that if you need or choose an endoscopy or further blood tests, you need to be eating gluten still, so maybe consider holding off until testing is complete, if you want a diagnosis.

I wish you luck with finding the root of your problems. It is amazing what can turn out to be related

Just to reiterate, as difficult as it is, please stay on gluten until your biopsy----for the most accurate result.

FWIW, I had what was called "Plantar fasciitis" too.

"itis" which means " inflammation" -- can occur anywhere in the body with a gluten problem.

In 2007, (before DX when I was very ill and did not know why) I had to have special inserts made, but still suffered terrible foot pain. I felt like I was stepping on glass when I got out of bed every morning and I could not walk without pain.

Now, 2 years after diagnosis, I have NO foot pain symptoms whatsoever and there is no need for the inserts a podiatrist told me I would "wear forever". This is just my experience, of course! :)

Mindwarp, I was thinking if the blood test is positive I would just go gluten free and see if symptoms go away after time. I am already having a colonoscopy this month. It's prescreening to make sure I do not have Chron's or something else. Before I have surgery on the fistula. So I figure that is enough poking and prodding for now.

Irish Heart my plantar fasciitis is now a mild discomfort and in the left heel, when it first started it was really bad. But 2 days after it went away, than the next day was back again like it was at the first which is weird!

Anyhow I will keep you's posted on results and guess I will stay on gluten so if test come back neg they can do further testing.

Thanks for the replies!

    • Sounds like food poisoning. Is this the same or similar reaction you get to CC? Did any of your family have it too? Who cooked it? Did you ask them what they used to prepare it? Was it cooked on a grill alone or in the husk? What else was cooked at the same time?
    • That sounds like food poisoning to me, since (1) corn has no gluten in it and (2) you have been eating corn fine your whole life. The only other alternative would have been if they used a coating or spices with gluten in it, but it seems unlikely to me for some reason.  Hope you're feeling better.   
    • I agree with what others said. You should do the research prior to posting about opening a business based on gluten free products or foods.  
    • My cycle is sensitive to gluten. As my conditioned worsened misdiagnosed after the birth of my second child I suspected my thyroid was off. A primary care Dr tested it per my request and I was determined normal results.  Even as gluten-free now if I get CC my period gets knocked offline and I sense my thyroid and adrenals are not functioning at full throttle but ironically I never show that per tests. I'm subinical - To assist my body back to my homestatsis and restore order to my period I find eating foods and taking supplements with focus on B vitamins, and supporting my adrenals help.  Warning my experience is once knock offline when my period cycle "fires" back on it is strong like when I was young and Newly menstruating. My body fires back on and is mad at the glutening. as cycling lady said your daughter may need to meet with nutritionist or have her levels tested.  My opinion it will come back but when the body is focused  on healing sometimes the period is dumped a bit, and with absorption issues the typical nutrients are going to healing so one needs to assure they have enough nutrients for other systems function like menstral and adrenal. good luck I'm optimistic it will return perhaps her body is prioritizing nutrients to healing. good luck
    • I myself run a gluten small gluten free bakery and do gluten free chef work. I looked at getting certified myself as a business. You can have your company certified by GFCO if you wish. I would suggest only buying from suppliers also certified by them. I myself only buy nut based flours from certain companies the specialize in gluten free only products. My bakery is a grain free bakery also. If you looking at getting your business certified it is very expensive. The cheapest route is a bit over 1k last time I contacted GFCO. For multiple lines, and online sales your looking at much more. They have to send in a agent to look over your set up, talk to you about CC, suppliers, packaging etc. it is not cheap either. You have to buy all new equipment, you can not used anything pre owned. Here are some links to look over. I can help set you up with some supply companies and ingredients suppliers if you need anything. Just tell me what your looking for and what your planning. I myself wish one day to open a gluten and grain free food truck and have been striving on fundraising for it for about a year now.
