  1. I have been on the gluten free diet since July 14th, 2008. The day I was diagnosed. I too seem to feel worse while being on the gluten free diet. I thought I was supposed to be getting better. I know that it can take some time to feel better so I am gonna give it some time. I am trying to weed out all possibilities of CC in the home. Going to buy new pots and pans for me. I just don't understand why some say the can't eat corn, oranges...etc.

    You read things online that say gluten free on one site then they say you can't eat it on another site. It's all really very draining to someone that has this condition already. I still feel very fatigued, aches and pains all over allthough my abdominal pains are starting to disappear. I guess I am just wishing the healing process was faster. I thought of doing the food calendar thing. recording what I eat everyday. If I have to I will eat only salads. I just feel like some days there is progress then regression.

    I can't believe how crappy this can make you feel. I haven't worked since October of 07 because of this. It took them 8 months to diagnose me. Its truly been horrible.

  2. I'm new to this and I don't know where to turn so I found this site. I have been having gastro intestinal problems since November of 07. This came about shortly after I was diagnosed with Hashimotos Thyroiditis. It is an auto immune disease of the thyroid.

    Well after going to my Gastro Doc he recommended that I have a Colonoscopy and Endoscopy which I did. No tumors or pollups. There was however, inflammation in the small intestine and colon. They took bi-opsies of small intestine, colon and stomach and showed inflammation. Every time I eat I feel horrible shortly after. Terrible pains in the lower righ quadrant that sometimes radiate around my back where your kidneys are. I also have terrible fatigue and muscle cramps and joint pain.

    I went to the doctors yesterday for blood tests for Celiac Sprue but won't know for a few days if that is what it is. I just can't believe that eating gluten can make you feel that awful. I haven't been the same since this all started. I can't work feeling like this. It's almost unbearable at times. Just feels like my guts are rotting from the inside out. I also had a CT Scan of my abdomen and pelvis and they said everything looked fine there.

    I'm just asking you guys to see if you think that this could be Celiac's seeing all the tests I have had done and that it is an auto immune disorder just like my thyroid problem.
