  1. Missy - I was 34 with my first bout with optic neuritis (now 43). I'm not sure I really missed anything in the 9 years as I don't have any significant symptoms and sure hope it stays that way as I hear some are symptom free for very long stretches. The things the neurologist asked was any feeling...
  2. I like the Neurologist ok but have had limited experience with him so I guess you could say the jury is out. I got the impression that he didn't go into a great detail as an appointment with such a diagnosis is obviously overwhelming - what I know is that 8 years ago I didn't have spots and now...
  3. I was diagnosed with celiac just over 3 years ago at age 40 but had mild symptoms for years that I brushed off. Symptoms finally intensified and I got tired of bring told I had reflux, a bad gall bladder, hormone fluctuations and asked to be tested for celiac. So darn frustrated to have yet another...
  4. Anyone else have both? I had my 2nd bout with optic neuritis in late February (ophthalmologist first though uveitis). 1st was 9 years ago and at that time MRI was clear. No other MS like symptoms but MRI showed a couple inflammatory spots enough for the neurologist to diagnose. Hoping that along...
  5. I just had optic neuritis in Feb/Mar which causes severe blurriness - this was my 2nd time (1st time was pre-celiac diagnosis). At first the ophthalmologist indicated it was uveitis which can also cause blurriness but when it didn't improve with drops, diagnosed it as optic neuritis. I'm not sure...
  6. Great info - thanks! I take Culturelle daily. Have you found taking it at night more effective? Do you have a brand of digestive enzymes you recommend? I think I may need to add that to my regimen.
  7. Any tricks you have for how you narrowed down your intolerances? I'm so bad at keeping a food log. I was diagnosed over 3 years ago and feeling pretty good until recently (with some ups and downs). Now I'm dealing with bloating a few times a week. My doc suggested trying the low fodmap diet but...
  8. Gluten free chicken parmesan rollatini... I'll definitely make it again!
  9. I was so proud of my husband. Someone at work was telling him about dominoes gluten free and he told her that I wouldn't be able to eat it unless it was in a dedicated oven. Since I am new to this it showed me he takes it seriously and understands it can't be half-a$$! Anyway, I think I will...
  10. I made my family's favorite meatloaf gluten free for the first time (I am newly diagnosed) and it was just as good as original. I used a mix of ground beef and turkey, crushed gluten-free tortilla chips, some gluten-free bread crumbs, chili powder and a little salt and topped it with BBQ sauce....
