  1. Hello, I'm going on vacation and would love to know when ur website is up and running! :)

  2. Sounds a lot like celiac to me. The only way to really tell, if your doctor won't support you in figuring out what is wrong rather than treat you like he's been treating you, is to just try the gluten-free diet and see if it helps. There are other foods that can cause really bad reactions,...
  3. I always heard that Tums had gluten? I just looked up their website FAQ http://www.tums.com/faqs_contents.asp#4 and this what it says - Does TUMS
  4. Oh for pete's sake... Them doing this is so stupid it makes me crazy. I mean why on earth??? Gah!!!!! Nancy
  5. This is weird. I haven't had anything with tapioca in it for two days. Today I woke up with only about a level 3 back pain rather than the 8-9 it had gotten to. It has just been building up slowly for several months up to a level 4 or 5. Not bad, but enough to cause me some issues. But...
  6. http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/7136123/?GT1=6305 At least 27 elementary school children died and another 100 were hospitalized after eating a snack of cassava
  7. Poked around on Pubmed.gov a bit. Yikes! http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/query.f...l=pubmed_DocSum "Recent reports suggest that the ingestion of poorly processed cassava roots is associated with the incidence of an ataxic neuropathy (konzo) in African countries. When cassava-based diets...
  8. I don't want to give it up either just because it's in my favorite mixes. But the stomach pains are starting to irritate the heck out of me. The products that are starting to connect together for me are Pamela's Wheat Free Bread Mix, Pamela's Pancake mix and Kinnickinnick chocolate dipped donuts...
  9. There are a few gluten-free products, made by gluten-free companies, that have been bothering me. I finally found the common denominator and it seems to be tapioca. My daughter is actually reacting to a couple of the products (the two she eats) with the same symptoms. Basically whatever...
  10. I'm so glad you found us here too. I would hate to think of you going through this alone. I'm glad the IV went well. Nancy
  11. Dasani is another one that I've seen mentioned here as causing problems for some people, mainly people with chemical sensitivities if I remember right. If you look at the ingredients list where you'd expect to just see "water" there are several "ingredients" listed in the water. I've never liked...
  12. Mmmm.... Nestle. Thanks for the list. Hey, don't you have some doctor's appt's this week? How are you feeling? Nancy
  13. It's nice to know it's not just me. It seemed so odd that I wasn't sure I'd get any responses. Good to know it should be gone in a couple days. Nancy
  14. I got glutened a few days ago by an Amy's frozen dinner. I have heard of a bunch of cross-contamination issues lately. I got D almost immediately, along with brain fog, headaches, skin issues, etc. I also had the feeling that my tongue was too big for my mouth, which was something I was getting...
