  1. Well, I won't be eating this particular product again, that's for sure. So I guess it really doesn't matter what anyone else thinks about it. I was really just curious if anyone else had a reaction to it.
  2. Yeah, I feel pretty frustrated because the few times I have definitely reacted it has been to things that should be gluten free. On the other hand, there are some brands that seem to be fine for me. Amy's is a godsend I don't think I'm afraid, I just want to do the best I can to avoid gluten because...
  3. Ok, but I had an obvious reaction to it! So how does that mean "food afraid"?? I liked it and it was delicious and I'm sad I'm not going to eat it again. Why so dismissive? This forum isn't turning out to be as helpful as I thought it might be. Kind of disappointed at the bickering. ETA: Of...
  4. I don't trust any of the labeling, honestly. Was just hoping to be able to not cook every single thing! I don't eat out except one restaurant I found where it's completely gluten-free environment. Well, I guess one upside is I've lost 20 lb (I needed to lose) since I was diagnosed! LOL
  5. I hardly eat any junk... leaning toward none soon! Luckily I don't care for any of the gluten-free breads I've tried, but I did like the idea of being able to have a frozen pizza, since I can never get delivery like everyone else. I do think there is gluten in that "gluten free" pizza. That's...
  6. I was wondering if anyone else has had a reaction to Udi's gluten-free Pizza or other Udi's products. I tried their pizza twice, this one: http://www.glutenfreemall.com/catalog/udis-glutenfree-three-cheese-pizza-frozen-unit-p-2489.html And I've had a particular reaction I have to gluten...
  7. I didn't have the usual symptoms at all. I had fatigue and joint pain and just feeling overall weird/not right... I couldn't even explain it very well. My doctor thought I had depression, but I didn't feel like I was depressed. I was happy, just tired and unmotivated. I asked for other tests before...
  8. "film over my eyes" is a great description. It makes me want to put a lot of drops in my eyes, but it doesn't actually help.
  9. YES! This is one of my major symptoms and I didn't even realize it before I was diagnosed and went gluten free. About a week after going gluten-free, I walked outside and looked around and thought "OMG, everything is so sharp!" It was like someone had switched me from standard definition to high...
  10. I had lunch at Nopalito on 9th by Golden Gate park yesterday and they were very helpful and knowledgeable. I had a yummy chicken soup with avocado, corn tortillas, cauliflower, and chipotle pepper. There were also a few other items on the menu that were gluten free. They were upfront about the items...
  11. This sounds like a relationship problem more than a health problem. If eating gluten makes you feel bad, your husband should support you. It makes me angry for you to hear that he is treating you this way. Nobody on the internet can diagnose you. You should go to the GI doctor and talk to them...
  12. I'm relatively newly diagnosed (5 months) but I have already figured out not to eat other people's cooking unless I am really sure they know what they're doing. I make a big point of telling friends when they invite me to dinner or a party that I absolutely do not want them to go to any trouble,...
  13. From what I have read, celiac disease affects your hormones. So it wouldn't be a surprise to see changes in the menstrual cycle. In the pamphlet my GI doctor gave me after diagnosis, one of the most surprising symptoms I was was "sore breasts" for three months after going gluten free. And I did experience...
  14. I felt better almost immediately. I had my endoscopy then started the gluten-free diet before I got the results. Within 3 days I felt noticeably different and have been feeling better and better continuously ever since. When I got my results, that yes I have celiac, I was not surprised. I could kick...
