    Overwhelmed and unable to accept

    Dear egs1707, You will not like what I have to say. But, like Squirmingitch (whose entire post I agree with), I am only trying to help you. 1. You have already been given all the best advice possible by the nicest people. ...

    Eye symptoms

    Cristiana, I had symptoms almost exactly how you described in our original post, when I was 12 years old. I was terrified. Nobody else seemed concerned. Luckily, this only lasted a year. I developed classic migraine symptoms when...
  3. My Celiac symptoms always flare after vaccinations. I've been gluten free for 6 1/2 years. I find the vaccine benefit to outweigh the temporary rise in symptoms--even though it is quite annoying. Since you've been gluten free for...
  4. Hi Carle, I didn't really get much better until I eliminated all grains. I'm diagnosed Celiac for 6 1/2 years and still do much better without any grains. I don't do dairy either because it causes me pain. (Never was lactose intolerant...
  5. I also love Spicely Organic Spices! CERTIFIED GLUTEN FREE and very, very good. You can get them on amazon.com. For me, it's simply not worth taking the chance with un-certified spices. I've seen videos of how spices are gathered, transported...

    Relief! And it isn't Dapsone!

    I am so sorry for your suffering. Your story drives home the point that having Celiac Disease drives us all to do our own research and try to find a doc to help--if we are lucky. I wish you a speedy recovery and my most earnest wish...

    Breast cancer

    Boysmom, my heart is breaking for you! I want to wrap my arms around you and beat the DEVIL BC into the ground so nobody needs to endure the fear or pain associated with it. I was diagnosed with BC 3 years before being diagnosed with Celiac...
  8. Nausea, vomiting, diarrhea can happen with any oral medication. I wouldn't worry unless the diarrhea becomes very severe. If that happens, you should call your doc immediately. I had 2 courses of rifaximin last winter (6 years gluten...
  9. Hi Amna! Sorry, I don't know about Solgar. Country Life brand offers several different calcium supplements that are all Certified Gluten Free. Don't feel too bad about your docs not knowing much about Celiac. In the USA, it...
  10. Thank you so much for letting us know. Bartfull's calming optimistic peace will be missed.
  11. Superb article especially for those with osteoporosis!
  12. I am so impressed with you! I thought you might just curse me out and not return to the site. You are stronger than you know. You have more options than you might realize. Please keep in mind that my only goal here is to try to help...

    The New Normal

    I have no desire to argue with anyone. I'm very sorry if you took it that way. I'm simply seeking information. I have not had the benefit of the valuable experiences you describe. I agree the OP had a legitimate rant. I am frustrated...

    Very, very well said!

    The New Normal

    It is a small world! I used to work in a large neonatal intensive care unit in a children's hospital. Most of our babies lived. Still, I can identify with your example. I agree with almost everything you posted. However, I really do...
