  1. I too enjoyed jogging and being moderately active prior to diagnosis. My weight decreased and I became rather weak around the time of diagnosis and even got to a place where I couldn't really work out at all. For me, I was drastically...
  2. For what it's worth, I've heard the "low-gluten" suggestion before but for Celiac's, this is sorely inadequate. I recommend partaking in the wine or "blood" but not the wafer or "body." My priest approved this practice as well. This...

    Joint Pain (New To Me)

    I had the same problem. I took osteo biflex for about a month and noticed a difference. Maybe it would help. It's an OTC supplement. Good luck.

    When Having Celiac Is Awesome

    It's awesome when someone offers me food or beverage that I really want nothing to do with. "Oh, yeah, I have Celiacs Disease - seriously - can't have that - its just bad news!

    Muscle Cramping And Bone Pain

    Hi - This happened to me as well. Here are some thoughts to ponder that may help... 1. Make sure you are making an extra effort to stay hydrated. I don't mean drink gallons at a time but make sure you get adequate water. 2. Eat bananas...
  6. It takes 1/8 of 1 teaspoon to create a chemical response in your body to Gluten whether you feel that effect or not--it's there. I have seen research (although I can't cite it, sorry) that said eating (1) cheat meal per month increases...
  7. I cannot disagree with the logic behind going ahead and running both panels just to be safe. Good idea.
  8. A biopsy is really your call. I will tell you that they used a different celiac panel for me because I am IGA absent. I have no IGA whatsoever. Your child is only 1 point out of normal range. The IgA marker is surely adequate. Perhaps...
  9. It has. It made me acutely aware of my mortality. So, instead of working the same job that I didn't care for just so I could get a nice check--I left it. I went to a place that I belong and fortunately, the people embrace me regardless...

    How Do I Stop The Worrying?

    Put a moratorium on health related questions and talk. (if possible) Then, busy yourself. (to the extent possible) For me, the busier I am, the less I think about negative things. The less I notice aches. The less I question every quirk...
  11. You're in the right place! This place has provided peace of mind many a time. Post any time!
  12. No. 1/8 of one teaspoon creates a reaction in our bodies even if we don't feel it per se.
  13. Yes, you should see your doctor and request the blood tests for Celiac that bartful mentioned above. I had benign lesions and elevated enzymes for my liver. The enzymes returned to normalcy on a gluten free diet. The joint pain, the liver...

    My Story

    Welcome to the forum. If you are reacting to rare gluten consumption as you stated, you need to never consume it again. Ever. There is research out there that makes gluten to a celiac look like poison to a normal person. Congrats on...
  15. Welcome to the board! Ask ANYTHING. I sure do. How you feel is completely normal. It took me months to finally convince myself that everything is going to be fine. You'll get there. It takes time to adjust but you will. Eventually...
