  1. Hi Scott Thanks so much for sending these really helpful tips. My husband reminded me that I got gastritis type pain about 2-3 weeks after my last major glutening and it's happening again, so very timely. Happy New Year to you too! Cristiana
  2. Hi Kate! Thanks so much for asking about us here in Britain. 😊The scientists announced this evening that they consider 1 in 50 people now have the virus, and of course we have a new mutation that is really driving the numbers through the roof. Sadly for a very long time a sizable minority ha...
  3. On the gluten front, I have a feeling of being at sea when I am glutened which lasts a good couple of weeks or so after the event. It makes me feel mildly sea-sick, or like when you have been travelling too long in a car, kind of car-sick, and is related to eye movement often. It usually catches...
  4. Happy New Year Friends! A quick question - I was very badly glutened with a slice of cake containing normal flour just before Christmas, served up to be my mistake. My symptoms were really severe this time albeit shortlived. In the early days post-DX a glutening would make me feel sick,...
  5. Do you eat oats (even the "pure" ones, which haven't been contaminated with gluten)? Quite a few celiacs react to the protein avenin - and I'm one of them. If I eat them I'll end up with gastritis-like symptoms and an upset stomach for two to three weeks.
  6. Hello there! I'm just wondering (sorry if I have missed something in your post) if you have been drinking any alcohol? I get gastritis-like symptoms (burning stomach just under sternum, left side of ribs) when gluten sneaks into my diet. I had terrible burning there for months a while back...
  7. Perhaps we could try to keep this thread updated as I'm hoping if there are any other similarly affected celiacs they will get in touch and who knows, someone might look into it in more depth. I'm going to ask my gastroenterolgist when I see him for my review if he's ever seen any other cases. ...
  8. Hi Scott Thank you for posting this. It is strange that you mention supplements as I have been wondering about those myself. I take B12 - just before I was diagnosed my levels were appalling and the difference that supplementing made on nerve issues and anxiety was extraordinary - night...
  9. This is an old thread, but as I contributed a while back on this thread, for anyone interested I can definitely confirm that chills (hot, cold, sweats, plus dizziness) is how I react to major gluten exposure (as opposed to cross contamination on a small scale which gives me gastritis like pain). ...
  10. I completely missed that one. I just wish I'd insisted my mother had been tested. Thanks so much for sharing.
  11. Wow Scott, that is an astounding statistic! I had no idea. My mother had osteoporosis and was a very anxious type. But of the generation where you "just got on with it" as we like to say here in the UK. I told my parents to get tested when I was tested but nothing came of it.
  12. Charlotte As you say... wise after the event! And you also mention another symptom I had - fainting! I'd forgotten that one. I too was worried about going to the doctor about my anxiety. I did go eventually, but I wish I'd gone sooner. While I was ill like this, physically and mentally...
  13. Charlotte Sorry, I think your question was directed at Trents but I thought I'd chime in too! Just to say that my most troubling symptom prior to diagnosis was severe anxiety of the likes I have never known before - my mind would not stop racing, coupled with really disturbing thoughts - plus...
  14. Hi Charlotte I am not sure about iron tests outside the NHS. However, one avenue worth exploring may be attending an accredited nutritionalist - we have a very highly qualified one living in our area and she did an additional blood test for me and found my D levels were far from ideal, something...
  15. PS.... these symptoms took a while to clear, months in some cases, and during that time I was very anxious which seems only to exacerbate the issues. So try not to panic if there isn't an instant fix, these things take time to heal. Incidentally I spoke to my nutritionalist that I was concerned...
