"little Symptoms" in Post Diagnosis, Recovery & Treatment of Celiac Disease Posted January 2, 2011 · Report to Admin I had similar little things. My ears no longer itch or are very waxy. I used to need to q-tip them every day they were so itchy. My scalp and skin are less dry. The kp on my upper arms is less severe. My lips are less chapped and dry. I'm no longer a slave to lip balm. My eyes are more moist and I need less artificial tears. One of my punctal plugs fell out and I haven't needed to have it replaced. The weird numb spot between my upper lip and nose is gone. My fingernails are strong and grow like crazy. They're no longer 'bendy' or peel easily. I can breath easier. My sinuses are less clogged. My sense of smell is back too (sometimes I wish this weren't better! ) My voice is more clear and strong. I'm much less hoarse. I also feel less claustrophobic and less anxious and more patient. I seem to be more present and in my body if that makes sense. Less foggy I guess you could say.
