  1. I have been sick for the last month. Upset stomach, headache, dizzy, weak, tired, the works. I literally eliminated everything from my diet except fresh meat, potatoes, canola oil, and Pepsi. I still had an upset stomach so I dropped the potatoes and tried strictly meat and salad (no salad dressing) and of course Pepsi. I feel like I have been injecting soy straight into my veins. I have tried eliminating everything but the Pepsi. Has anyone else noticed a difference since they changed the formula to Pepsi or is there something else going on with me I haven
  2. Happy birthday and may God bless you today!

  3. Hey folks, I am from Utah as well. I live in Saouth Salt Lake but will be moving to Tayllorsville, WVC city area in the next month. I am not mormon so don't know what you guys are talking about sometimes but thought I would say hi. Melissa
  4. I am so sorry for your loss. I know how bad it hurts. I have had several pregnancies and had 1 child make it. I have had positive home preg tests but then miscarried within the first trimester. I blame the celiac disease as well. I am now 37 with an 18 year old girl. I personally will not try for anymore but wish you all the luck in the world.
  5. I am new to this website but I will try to explain it all. Childhood: Always sick. Leg Aches that would wake me up screaming in the middle of the night, Stomach Aches, nervous, depressed, tired, etc. I can't count how many doctors my mom took me to. I was diagnosed as "hating school" or even worse needing to eat prunes every morning. That didn't make any sense because sometimes it was "d" others it was "c". Always very very skinny. Teens: Same as above only worse. I was 5'5" and weighed 95 lbs on a good day. Bones sticking out everywhere. My bones hurt. When I told people that they basically said I was lying "no one can feel their bones" Twenties: Same as above only worse with add explosive "d" on some very embarresing occasions. Thirties (now): Having to carry a backpack with a change of clothes just in case. I got really sick and was in a high stress job. When the stress was at it worst I was ok but once the stress was gone I was sicker than anything. I got to the point that I had bloody "d" and could barely handle going to work. I had a few accidents there but fortunatly had my backpack. I have been to countless doctors, GI's and OB/GYN's. One doctor told me he was surprised I wasn't glowing in the dark with all the x-rays, MRI's anc CAT Scans I have had. I had a colonoscopy that showed 5 polyps, several pap smears with abnormal results, countless kidney stones. I stopped counting at 30. I had to tell my boss what was going on because I was missing work. Her and I were talking one day and she said she read a magazine article about wheat allergies and I had a lot of the symptoms. She dared me to go without wheat for a week to see if it helped. I did. I started feeling better and my bones stopped hurting. My brain felt "fuzzy" and someone told me it was the lack of carbs so I went to KFC and got mashed potatoes and gravy. I don't cook at all and didn't know there was flour in gravy. I limped into work the next day, I hurt so bad I could barely make it, I was gray again, and was sweating from the effort of walking about 20 feet. My boss asked what I ate and I told her. It was then I figrued I was allergic to wheat. I went to a store in town that specializes in glutten free products. I was talking to the owner of the store and she told me about the celiac disease. She told me with the symptoms I have she is sure I am not allergic to wheat but have celiac. I went back to the doctor a few weeks later, she was really concerned because of the bloody "d" I had been having for about 6 months off and on. I told her about the glutten free diet and no more blood. She said they could do a test to see if it was celiac but it would mean another scope, this one going down my throat. I didn't see any point in that. I know what it is, yes I don't have a doctors note but I am feeling so much better it isn't funny. I still have a few aches and pains in my bones but nothing like before. I still have a little "d" if I eat meat that is really greasy or some other things. I am just waiting to heal the villi in my intestines and seeing how food and I get along after that. Needless to say I will never eat glutten again on purpose and will read every label to make sure there isn't anything in there I can't have.
