  1. Thanks for the comraderie. I still can't believe I made such an obvious mistake, but at least now I know what happens when I eat significant gluten. I was curious. By this time...
  2. I was wondering how long it takes others to recover after being hit by gluten. I have been gluten free, to my knowledge, since I was diagnosed last April, but on Thanksgiving,...
  3. I am seven months out from diagnosis and going completely gluten-free, and let me tell you that gluten withdrawal is very real, and headaches were one of my major symptoms. You...
  4. There are different causes for dizziness. I have had several experiences of awful vertigo, one sending me to the emergency room, and in each case the cause could be traced to my...
  5. I know that pineapple has no gluten, but because having Celiac can make you prone to various ailments (migraine, lactose intolerance, etc) I wondered if it could make someone intolerant...
  6. I have never been able to eat pineapple without uncomfortable effects. Depending on when and how much I eat, I can get painful raised red patches on my tongue, a prickly feeling...
  7. I just did this test through my doctor, along with testing for lactose and fructose. The fructose test was the only one to come back positive for me. My understanding is that...
  8. Your symptoms sound very similar to mine--throat pain, heavy fatigued arms and legs and headaches especially. I have been gluten free (I hope) since April 1st, 5 mons. In my experience...

  10. OP here. Well, I had a big bowl of oatmeal this morning, 3 months post-diagnosis and gluten free (as far as I know), and so far everything is fine. In my former life, pre-gluten...
  11. Are you still having any digestive issues, like gas and bloating (sorry)? Lactose or Fructose Intolerance can cause bad breath (ask me how I know) due to the gasses being absorbed...
  12. You and I sound very similar--moderate gastritis, acute and chronic esophagitis, no h pylori. Gastritis and Acid Reflux symptoms, and no relief from PPIs, are what eventually led...
  13. I feel you on the PPIs not working, and then the difficulty of weaning off of them. Six weeks of Prilosec, a week of that double dose, and I got no results. Like you, it was only...
  14. Just a few ideas to offer, along with sympathy from someone who has struggled with acid reflux. First, you might try cutting the quinoa out of your diet. It gives me acid reflux...
  15. Love reading these gluten free retrospectives! I'm pushing three months post diagnosis now and am in the delightful discovery phase of perceiving just how much has been wrong and...
