  1. My gastritis didn't stop until I eliminated tea -- especially hot tea. I'm not sure why the hot bothers me worse than the iced tea, but it does. I also have problems with coffee.
  2. I'm so sorry you're going through this! For me, the anxiety went away quickly -- but not all of it. I found that like many celiacs, dairy also gives me problems. When I cut out gluten and ALL dairy, I went from being extremely anxious and self-condemning to having a calm and peaceful mind. For this...
  3. I'm a fan of NOW Foods' vitamins, but their B complex says that although it does not have gluten containing ingredients, it is manufactured in a facility that processes gluten. Having had a reaction to something that came off a shared line before (although it was NOT from NOW Foods), I'm concerned...
  4. Regarding beans...you have to be careful with them. Some varieties are grown in the same fields with barley. In my last bag of pinto beans, I found 3 or 4 pieces of barley. Because of this, I don't eat any beans I don't sort myself. In other words, no canned beans -- even if they're labeled gluten...
  5. I get SUPER self-critical when I'm glutened. I mean really, really bad! I tell myself over and over how worthless I am. Just like you, I can't get it out of my head. When I haven't been glutened, I'm as calm and happy as can be.
  6. I've been gluten free since diagnosis about a year and a half ago. I'm currently taking: vitamin D -- was diagnosed with low levels magnesium -- started taking this as a result of a recommendation I read somewhere calcium -- I can't tolerate dairy CoQ10 -- was diagnosed with low levels...
  7. I'm curious to know which supplements everyone takes and why.
  8. I can't eat out with my husband...ever. I used to eat out at one place that is very, very careful, but wound up getting glutened there eventually. That was about 2 months ago, and I'm still not over the after-effects. I can't afford to risk it. The only place I would consider eating out from now...
  9. I agree with kareng -- go slow and try to eliminate things one at a time. No need to eliminate more than you have to! Something else you might consider experimenting with is reducing high histamine foods. If you do a quick google search, you can find lots of info on this. In addition to celiac...
  10. I'm sorry, I think I misunderstood. Are you talking about being diagnosed with celiac, or are you talking about the brain scan?
  11. Mentally speaking, dairy does almost the exact same thing to me that gluten does.
  12. I get neruo symptoms, as well. I did have a brain scan due to what you describe as "body jerks," but they found nothing. I figure that whatever the state of my brain health is now, it's infinitely better than when I'm on gluten, and for that, I'm thankful. Even if you worry about it, it won't change...
  13. For years my lips would peel horribly (like sking coming off in sheets), crack, and bleed. I was constantly chewing on them because there was always dead/hardened skin on them. It was painful and gross. Then I discovered that I was sensitive to petroleum and the coloring in lipstick. Putting...
