  1. I did have another quick question for whoever is reading, does my boyfriend need to go gluten free as well? Could that be another cross contamination? Does he need to use gluten-free cosmetics as well? Thank you again for your help!
  2. Thank you all so much! You have been really helpful! Whole foods diet, here I come!
  3. Thank you both so much for responding! It is such a relief to know that people have had the same problems! I am definitely going to start with the simple diet! I've just been trying to figure out how to eat the things I used to eat. In all honesty I don't eat out because I'm too afraid to. I live in LA and I went out once or twice after I was diagnosed and having to explain to the waiters and waitresses what I can't eat seemed to be extremely difficult! Do you have any suggestions of places I could eat at? As for personal care products, I haven't done that yet but have been researching which products are out there that are gluten-free. I read that California Baby is good for hair care. Do you have any suggestions? Thank you again! So much!
  4. Hi all! My name is Rebecca and I found out I had celiac disease about 2 months ago. I was having a good amount of the symptoms: constipation, migraines, dizziness, confusion, hypoglycemia, nausea, fainting spells, seizure like symptoms, etc. The doctors had told me that by six weeks everything will be back to normal. Well six weeks have come and gone and I am feeling worse than ever. I'm not sure if the symptoms I am having are common or not and I'm not sure what to do about them. I get extremely exhausted to the point where I can't get out of bed and after doing minimal tasks throughout the day become even more exhausted. I keep having these chills that hurt almost, I am freezing but my skin is warm or hot. It's a freezing cold that feels like it's coming from my bones and nothing can warm me up. I keep getting these awful pressure headaches that make my vision blurred. I become extremely week throughout the day. I also seem to get lost easily, meaning I can't remember things that I have been talking about at the time or half way through a sentence my thought just seems to stop. I've read that that can be a symptom but I'm not sure about it. The constipation keeps getting worse as well. I also feel like I have gained about 20 lbs. in 5 days. I feel extremely bloated all the time. I have also been having sharp stomach pains and extreme nausea. Sometimes after eating something gluten-free I have a reaction to it as it if was packed with gluten, I get nauseous and feel like I need to throw-up (but I never do because I really do not like throwing up to the point where I will do ANYTHING to not). I also can have these random stabbing pains in my chest. Sort of like the pinched nerve feeling but it's a little different, it's in the right side or left side of my chest and then that whole side including my arm will go numb for a few minutes. I think I have been pretty good at keeping a gluten free diet but I am sure there are more slip-ups than I know of because I still don't know everything 100%. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thank you so much!
