  1. I've found that my higher sugar days tend to be a little bit more 'triggering' than lower sugar days. I'm not sure exactly if that pertains to this, but chocolate, coffee, caffeine, dairy (of course), or higher protein without having enough veggies to go with it. I've been hardcore gluten-free for...
  2. How do you guys handle the upcoming holidays? I have Christmas Dinner happening at my mother-in-laws place, and flour usually ends up EVERYWHERE! She does a whole bunch of baking and cooking that day, and often hugs everyone with her flour-covered apron on. Recently she exclaimed all happily...
  3. Alright, good to know. Thank you! I wanted to check and make sure I wasn't going crazy Also: It turns out the 'gluten free cookies' my mother-in-law made the other day were made gluten free, but when she rolled out and cut the dough she used regular flour. Most excellent
  4. Hi all, After going gluten-free for the past month and a bit, I was feeling surprisingly better. (You guys will also be happy to know that after an entire life of symptoms, my MOM finally went to get herself tested based on my experience. THANK YOU ALL for that!) However, recently I have...
  5. I also included strict reduction in eggs and milk (to make things easier on my system right now). However, it seems to be gluten that causes a huge huge reaction. Eggs might make my stomach hurt, but not nearly as miserable as when I have bread-based products. After the testing phase, I went...
  6. Update: According to my doctor, all tests came back "Normal". However, I will be going down to the office today to hopefully pick up a copy of the labs for my records. I kind of figured as much, as it was not 3+ months of glutening myself. The blood test was done after 2 months, because I just couldn...
  7. Thanks ((((((nvsmom)))))) Update: Today I went to see this new MD. Apprehensive. So I wrote out three pages worth of notes to make sure I didn't miss anything. Wrote down the tests you had all recommended and a few other things. Walked in, he asked what brings me in. I tell him 3+ years ago I began...
  8. It is harder than I ever imagined :-( I'm supposed to be seeing my naturopath on Nov 19th, but I honestly don't think I could make it that long. My symptoms are bad enough that they are starting to cause me to miss work again because I can't stand up. So I called up an MD that is taking patients...
  9. Good morning, You wonderful folks have been so incredibly helpful. I am turning to you once more. I finally found a doctor in my area that is willing to listen to my concerns. Well, she's a naturopath, but one of the top recommended in the city. I have an appointment with her on Nov 19th. Since...
  10. I have stopped for now, as my wedding is in 2 weeks and I am not getting a biopsy done until after. I don't want the rash to end up on my face, chest and arms if I can help it! Oh that would be brutal! After that point, I'll eat gluten again, once I can confirm there's a dermatologist who can do...
  11. Thanks Cyclinglady for the welcome! Yes, I've switched 100% back to what I was eating prior and have cancelled (or moved to my house ;-)) any dinner plans with relatives until W-day! I'm so glad you pointed me in that direction. I just cruised around that section of the forum for a bit and found...
  12. Good evening, folks. I came here a little while back and have been lurking around for a while. I am this stage still undiagnosed, but have put myself on a heavily reduced gluten diet over time and have had great success in managing my symptoms for the past year! I have an awesome boss who is a huge...
