  1. Hey Palmtrees450, You are not alone. I am going through the exact same thing right now. I thought it was gone but unfortunately I ate something else that has triggered it again. After reading another article on here I am starting to think it is rice...yet one more thing to eliminate from...
  2. Brain fog is a common symptom. I had a hamburger patty from a local restaurant and am suffering the effects. Sometimes mine is bad and sometimes it is mild. This one feels mild, provided I am not "glutened" again. I have the exact same feelings when I am contaminated. I actually had 2 good days...
  3. Everything I have learned I have learned through this forum or simply from my last EGD results and labs and then looking them up on the internet. The drs have given no information except for do a gluten free diet. My understanding is that a repeat EGD is needed to confirm healing. When I was tested...
  4. Thanks so much for all of the encouragement guys. She really did make me doubt. But after going back and reviewing all I know and all of the records I have obtained and kept throughout this last year, I know I have Celiac. I will allow her to do the EGD only because I don't want to have to wait...
  5. Just had my 2nd visit with a new GI doctor I started seeing earlier this year. I was diagnosed with Celiac by another GI in June of 2015. Wasn't happy with him because he said he "might" diagnose only one celiac per year. Told me to just do gluten free and sent me on my way. Diagnosis was with...
  6. Thank you for the advice cycling lady. Where I live there are no such things as gluten free restaurants except of course my home. Have you found that each glutening is worse than the last? I am trying to eat at least every few hours to at least give my system a chance to heal. I have found the...
  7. I was diagnosed Celiac in June 2015 and have been trying to make this gluten free diet work as well as possible. I have just had a round of antibiotics for a bad tooth, my son broke his arm and during the trip to the ER, we stopped and I was glutened by what I think was cross contamination from...
  8. I have just gotten over a glutening. This one was NO FUN AT ALL, as I know none of them are. But this one really took me back. Worst I have ever had. Anxiety was through the roof. It took mine about a week to show up full blown. I had small symptoms along the way. It wasn't until a few days...
  9. I had been having some issues with a bad tooth and the dentist gave me a prescription for Amoxicillin. Seems like every day this week I have felt glutened in some way. Have pretty much finished the antibiotic but was wondering if anyone else has had the same reaction after taking an antibiotic...
  10. I feel that way as well when I have been glutened. Have gone as far as only having my food cooked in my own pots and pans and even use just my utensils that don't come in contact with gluten. Makes a difference, until I accidentally get glutened then can't figure out why. Glad you are feeling...
  11. I have just been prescribed Vimovo and am curious if anyone else has had to take it and had good success with it as far as actually working and being gluten free. I am coming up empty handed and it will be tomorrow before I can call the mfg regarding it gluten content (if any). I saw a post from...
  12. I have gone about a whole week and have been having trouble feeling rested after a full nights sleep. I was accidentally glutenend a few weeks ago by a mere handful of French fried onions someone put in something I ate. I unfortunately did not know they were in there until a day or so later when...
  13. After being recently diagnosed with Celiac, and the more reading I do, the more this is getting to be a lot of information. After going strict gluten-free almost immediately after my diagnosis I started feeling much better within just a few days. Actually had a couple of good weeks after that....
  14. Made some vegetable soup yesterday and was "assuming" Veg All was gluten free. I looked at the can and the ingredients and all seemed to be fine. However I was wondering if anyone could tell me for sure that it was gluten free?
  15. Thanks to both of you. It is so hard trying to figure this out. Lots of good information online about food, etc. but it is still hard when the flare ups do happen. Was just so funny how good I felt yesterday then to wake up this morning and feel bad again. I thought the sick part was over because...
