  1. From my exp, I know that when I am on the GFdiet and I cheat, I pay for it major! I had a small cupcake the other day and was so beyond sick! I was also super tired and slept all day on the 4th of July...
  2. Hello everyone, I am a 29 years old Female, and not getting any younger OR healthier. I actually started having all sorts of symptoms when I was 23. The doctor just said that I had IBS... Typical I know. Long story short is that I was super healthy, looked great in a bikini, and now, 4 yrs later, the weight gain slowly started, I couldn't lose it, I had what I thought was bad IBS-A, and thought that was the problem. Well now I have gained a total of 92 lbs (I'm 5' 11") and all sorts of symptoms. -diarrhea, headaches, back aches, major knee joint pain, fingers are sore, feels like my whole body aches, numb shoulders, hands and feet, stomache pain after I eat certain foods, bad brain fog, super SUPER tired all the time but can't sleep at night, anxiety and depression, stomache bloated to look 5 months pregnant... I can't think of anything else at the moment... But a few people including my husband got worried because my health was bad and I gained so much weight and even when I dieted and exercised I didn't lose anything. So my husband was worried. I got to doing some research and kind of self diagnosed myself. So I talked to a lady I know who has celiac disease and she gave me a lot of tips and advice. Well, since I didn't have health ins. I decided to just go off gluten and see if it helped... Well after a few days I noticed some change... I didn't have to run to the bathroom after 5-30 mins after I ate! So, once I got ins. I went to my Dr. For a checkup and told him what I had done. He said it sounds like I have at least a gluten intollefance and he wanted to try a blood test... I said I was off gluten for 3 weeks and the blood work will most likely come back negative.... He said he wanted to try anyway. So we did and I was right. Heathen asked if I wanted to do the scope and I said no.... Mainly because I don't want to start eating gluten just to get the best results... I would like to know but at the same time, I have tohavesome sort of allergy to it or I wouldnthavebeenfeeling a bit. Better already... I guess I am wondering,should I still do the scope even though I have been off gluten for 3 weeks? Anything helps!
