  1. Very interesting. I wanted to say I have much more anxiety when I get glutened as well.
  2. Well thank you all for responding. I felt a little stressed and confused this morning, but now I think I feel confident about my decision.
  3. I don't have Celiac, just gluten intolerance, but I have the same "pregnant belly". I have been off gluten for 6 months and I get it when I eat gluten, or sometimes dairy. Like, so big I can't button my pants (and I am normally skinny)....
  4. Also, I can't speak for everyone else, but I developed a sort of aversion to gluten, because I could tell it was making me sick. It was hard at first, but it got easier.
  5. If you've already been tested you may just try the diet yourself. I would not recommend it if you haven't been tested because now I have been off it too long to be tested (and it makes me sick to eat it again). My husband has been supportive...
  6. Hmm, I'm not liking the word "months" there. Ok, I think I'm not gonna do it. It's not a good sign if I'm ready to give up after one day. He did say the only difference was that if I did have Celiac disease I would just have to check up...
  7. Ah, ok now I'm feeling it. I ate some soup and my stomach feels very bloated. I also have heartburn and that tightness in my chest. How long would I have to wait to take the blood test? They said whenever, so I could do it next week. I have...
  8. I'm worried that I'm wrong. Sometimes I get sick after I eat, like immediately. But today when I ate that bread I just got really bloated and now I have heartburn. I don't have stomach cramps. And I have to go in between Monday and Thursday...
  9. Debbie, how long were you gluten free beforehand?
  10. But is it even worth it? And I was confused that he scheduled the blood test and the biopsy at the same time. Shouldn't I just try the blood test and if it comes back positive then do the biopsy? I ate like 3/4 of a piece of bread when I...
  11. I saw a GI today who said he doesn't think I have Celiac but said I might as well be tested since I'm only 22. I have been gluten free for 6 months so he asked me to eat gluten for 2 weeks then get a biopsy. The biopsy is actually scheduled...
  12. I have been referred out to a GI specialist. I will have a new doctor so I'm excited to see how this will go.

    I wondered about that. I saw this fruit juice that had wheat grass labeled, but was marked gluten free.
  14. I have sort of a similar story. I was diagnosed with IBS for about 2 1/2 years. It started in college. I accepted this diagnosis at first but then it got worse and worse with new symptoms. I felt like I wasn't being taken seriously, and...

    What Is Your Daily Diet?

    Yoplait yogurt is delicious for breakfast. The ones that are gluten free are labeled on the back. Coffee is gluten free (woooo) but watch out for flavored coffees and creamers. I make a lot of soup, meat and potatoes, mexican food (like...
