    You may never consider a vaccine but from someone that has a son so sensitive that he can't walk due to joint pain several times a week, a vaccine would be wonderful.  He can be in a room with people that aren't even eating food but have it on their hands etc.  He shakes no ones hand, he eats no food he doesn't prepare, he tries not to touch surfaces and still has terrible issues.  A vaccine would be awesome so he could have his life back.  I am glad yours isn't so bad that you would want one but don't discount those that need it.

    Hi, He may have additional food intolerances that have developed and are causing symptoms.  Nightshades and soy are 2 that seem to be associated with joint pain.  Also vitamin D deficiency can cause it.

    This is what happened to me. I went years and years with depression, chronic pain in my lower stomach (constant PMS 24/7 for almost 6 years), my stomach was awfully bloated, too. And (sorry, tmi coming) I was only going to the bathroom (number 2) once or twice a month and it was so bad, I bled, even when I was eating over 150 grams of fiber A DAY. Drinking at least a half a gallon of water A DAY. No bowel movements (and took a bottle of castor oil to get the job done and that was a nightmare, too). I then started developing eczema, two years after that, hives. I started looking into the hives, because I could only take so much with the eczema flairs and now these little itchy bastards covering my chest, arms and neck. So, after hours on the laptop looking up why I have hives and eczema, then why I was so bloated, every single site I looked at had ONE thing in common in the list of things that could cause ALL of my symptoms. Yep, you guessed it, wheat. I went to my doc, told her what I felt was happening (after my research) and guess what? two, almost 3 months gluten free and not only am I without hives, my eczema is NOWHERE near as bad as it was, I have lost 20 pounds and 7 inches in my stomach (from being constipated and extremely bloated). I feel so much better. Less anxiety, clearer head, regular bowel movements. The hard water in my shower irritates my skin, but that's it. I am so happy I discovered my gluten allergy, just sorry it took so dang long.

    Hi Amber Kay,

    Your itchy hives could be DH (dermatitis herpetiformis).  You can read up on DH in the DH section of the forum.  You will find tips for how to deal with it there that might help you.  https://www.celiac.com/forums/forum/26-dermatitis-herpetiformis/
