  1. Yep. Me for years. Ran limited blood tests because Celiac runs in my family but totally missed it for numerous reasons and just kept telling me it was IBS caused by anxiety and to take Valium and peppermint oil 'as needed'. I agree with all the above. Doctors are much more onto it these days and...
  2. WHAT A REPLY. Ha. This made me smile so much for multiple reasons. Timepoor as I'm reading it so won't write as much as I want to but will say I carried Xanax with me for 2 whole years. But never used it again after the last panic attack. What a long time you too were undiagnosed! It's tempting...
  3. This was one of my major issues before changing diet. The sudden dizziness spells without being lightheaded. It still happens sometimes and I want to pin it on another aspect of diet (because once you can do that with gluten and some stuff, it's tempting to boil everything down to diet, I find, and...
  4. Wow! This was me all last year. How weird! I really couldn't figure it out and I still haven't. But I do know there are some foods that if I eat a lot of them, I feel like that afterwards. Not because of intolerance (because they're fairly benign ones) but something in the balance. I think it...
  5. I felt worse for a few weeks, in a way I can't quite describe. Most people I know didn't feel that way but I know it's not uncommon. And things that were better felt weird so uncomfortable (ie. stomach all light and airy rather than constantly full). I was starving and sweating and shaking, too,...
  6. Totally agree with this. I don't eat fake processed foods and do better with 'real' dairy than processed alternatives, but do struggle with things like dairy in bulk. Moderation! I probably always did but am more attuned to gut now and it isn't always chaos so I notice what hurts more than...
  7. Ha. Thanks! It does but I like alphabet soup! It seems that 2.2 is related indeed but I'm just not sure (because DQ 2.2 is something coming from 3 snps not 1, as per the others) what defines it (as in the 1 allele or many). I also don't know does everybody have it and just different alleles? ...
  8. About 24 hrs. With my grandmother it's 7 days, like clockwork. It must vary a lot.
  9. I know some people believe there's a spectrum to all this but just wondering about your thoughts and experiences on first degree relatives who have had lifelong symptoms (DH, miscarriages, stomach and metabolism issues etc., debilitating joint pain etc.) , were shocked to find that that their symptoms...
  10. Just adding in that other intolerances are common BUT I was reading a study last night about how gluten-free diets lead to a reduction in various good bacteria and things like butyrate so a lot of people simultaneously have improved digestion but also alterations and sometimes other sorts of worsening...
  11. Hi! Just a positive note from someone 4 years into the gluten-free diet who had questions about worsening food intolerances, no change in lifelong insomnia and ongoing panic attacks (which came out of the blue a few years prior and lead to full blown agoraphobia quite suddenly 'for no reason'...
  12. Hi all! This forum is so great! I'm learning a lot. And I've got a question for you if you understand genetics. I'm relatively sciencey, have a 3 year old we're investigating (as he has relative and had symptoms as a baby), know all about DQ2.5 etc. and that research shows if you have DQ...
