  1. Your encouraging post about skin sensations and trigger points resolving gave me the boost I needed today. I am very discouraged (although I always have hope)and your words helped immensely. Thanks!

  2. Before diagnosis and while I was in the intial months of healing, this was a major symptom for me. It hurt to towel dry after a shower. That was when I knew my doctors were full of crap and I needed to get aggressive with finding out what was wrong. I remember curling up in a ball and crying to my...
  3. Yes. It was years ago and I don't remember my dosages. I was diagnosed with endometriosis prior to persuing infertility treatment. I ovulated on my own, but we were trying to stimulate multiple folicle production. I had had a laparoscopy to remove the endometriosis some time before the clomid, and...
  4. A lot of us go through a period of having sugar issues. Mine come back every time I get glutened. It seems the more sugar/carbs I eat, the more I want. The best advice I have is to avoid the sugars and carbs and stick with high protien, veggies, and healthy fats for a week or two. That will likely...
  5. We know that endometriosis is suspected to have an autoimmune connection if not being an autoimmune disease in its own right. We also know that PCOS is related to diabeties and that diabeties can be related to Celiac. It does not surprise me that either of these conditions would respond to a gluten...
  6. 2 thoughts. I lost a full shoe size after going gluten free due to the bloat. (At the same time, I gained 20 lbs and people kept commenting on how thin I was looking). Also, I too experienced mild urinary incontinence that was getting worse. It stopped almost immediately after going gluten free....
  7. I'm sorry about the glutening. It's always an awful mistake. I get primarily neuro reactions starting 45 minutes after ingestion. It peaks at days 2 and 3 then gets tolerable by day 5-6. I still feel poorly for 2+ weeks, but it's manageable. I hope you are feeling better soon and just remember that...
  8. Thanks for your kind words and encouragement. :)

  9. Muscle twitches here too at 16 months. Pre diagnosis, they were unpredictable and scary. Now, they have primarily moved to my extremities and/or areas I am working on with trigger point therapy. They tend to head to my face and abdomen more and be more persistant when I'm fatigued. Now, just...
  10. thank you so much for your posts. The chili was great and I'm back to using it again. (I had it on my suspect list after a couple bad reactions, but I later put the cc'ed corn chips at the top of that list).
  11. The label says several safe ingredients, then "spices". I know that mixed "spices" can be a red flag, but then I keep hearing McCormick's is safe. So, What is the verdict on McCormics "spices" as an ingredient in one of their bottled spices? It is the same size/shape as all my pure spices from McCormics...
  12. I use a barium contrast at work for my job. The one I use is gluten free, but there are some that are not. What is the brand....Vari-Bar or Veri-Bar. I'll have to check monday. Call the CT place, and ask for the brand, product, date, and phone number. If the product isn't gluten free, you can...
  13. Don't pull out the pregnancy tests yet. When the body is stressed, it can sometimes delay ovulation which will, in turn, delay a period. I'm guessing your body experienced the same kind of stress mine did after going gluten-free and is just coping with the changes. I suspect it will right itself...
  14. Hypnogogic hallucinations. I have something somewhat similar that only occurs once or twice a month now that I'm gluten free. It was daily in the worst parts of my prediagnosis. Fortunately, my images are not scary. Unfortunately, they are not hunky men either. Just altered images of my bedroom...
  15. I can't tell you if you have Celiac or not, but I will agree with all of the above posters comments and add that my symptoms were exactly the same as yours from the statement about migraines down through the seeing stars comment. All have started to improve on my gluten-free diet for diagnosed Celiac...
