  1. Yes, I have looked all that up. And it was most likely seratonin toxicity. I'm doing well on the half dose of Lexapro. I am much more apt to cry at heartbreaking or heartwarming things since the Lexapro tends to make me not emotional enough to cry at things. But other than that I'm doing well. No...
  2. Well, since my last post things have really turned around in a good way. My mom is now on my side fully with going gluten-free. I feel so much better, though I am now having huge flare-ups of new and typical allergies, and also now having loose stool and gastro pain. I think it's my daily pills....
  3. I was having an allergy (I think) to my multi-vitamin so I quit taking it and now am not taking any supplements. I'm having so many allergies all of a sudden. It's crazy. I'm now allergic to my skincare products - except for coconut oil and jojoba oil. My shampoo eats away my skin (bad contact dermatitis...

  7. I'm not sure what was going on but yesterday I ended up having some severe confusion about 7 or 8pm. I really think it had everything to do with eating malted milk balls. I'm not yet diagnosed with celiac though. I am definitely calling my GP tomorrow to get an appointment this week for the bloodwork...
  8. I grew up with (and still am affected by) polymorphous light eruption (aka sun poisoning) which is a mass of hives on the sunlight exposed (or UV exposed skin). Mine starts showing up about 5 minutes in the sun if I don't have sunscreen on. The sting is super intense (similar to DH) and it itches...
  9. Hi! My name is Brittany, I am 28 years old and just recently started researching Celiac Disease and how it can affect people. I have come to find out that most of my various health problems can be related to and caused by celiac disease. Here is a list of what ails me currently: bipolar disorder...
