  1. For what it's worth, I tried provigil and found it made me agitated and unable to sleep but no less fatigued than before.
  2. Ker, to get research done, your best bet is to find a pulmonologist (who deals with narcolepsy) and a gastroenterologist (who deals with celiac disease) who is well-established in getting research grants! This combination doesn't sound too likely, but you never know. Perhaps a large university...
  3. laughs8, interesting about the Medipro mix! I'll definitely look into that. I also have foot pain so our symptoms sound rather similar. Did you use the Medipro in addition to regular meals or in place of? Even LaChoy soy sauce (claimed to be gluten free) seems to be bothering me but I'm not...
