  1. Looking - Sorry I don’t have answers for you, but I can sympathize with you. It sounds a lot like what I have been going through this last year. I also had high RF and RA numbers along with high CCP numbers. I requested a Lyme test and that came back with some positive bands and some negative. ...
  2. Hello - Are you still active on this forum? Very interested in your situation from 2014. Is it possible to get an update? I am experiencing some of the same symptoms that you explained and am lost. Thanks.

  3. T.S. I went through the same thought process (still am I guess) I wondered how I could feel worse, sleep worse, over the top anxiety, panic attacks, depression among other things, AFTER I went gluten-free. I can't explain it, but it happens. People talk about a withdrawal and maybe that's what...
  4. Welcome, I have been on this forum since being diagnosed via blood test last May. I have ran across several posts that would describe what I was going through almost to a tee. Yours is probably the closest. From the Marijuana, to the Pizza, to the fast food; to the meds and anxiety and sleeplessness...
  5. Dv1983 - Been gluten-free for 7 months now. I had bad GERD for about 10 years, taking up to 3 Prilosec a day for periods as long as a year. I was always on at least 2 a day. GERD was one of the first things that I saw get better (maybe the only thing so far). I hadnt had GERD since going gluten-free...
  6. Hey Kurt - Not sure this will help, but this is my story and advice. I am 53 y.o. male, retired with 21 years active service in the Army. Early last year, I was having some really bad lower back pain which I had never really had before. I have always had G.I. issues but always managed. I had been...
  7. Hello , I am 5 months in and have had chronic muscle pain starting right after going gluten-free. My Dr. Claims it is fibromyalgia and has me on gabapentin but it isn't touching the pain. I am seeing her on Monday and will wean myself off of it. I seen a Dr at the VA this week and went through...
  8. I am still somewhat new to celiac disease (dx'd in May). My symptoms included stomach issues but since going gluten-free it seems like my muscles, joints, brain fog and depression have been plaguing me. Two weeks ago I probably had the best 5 days in a row since May. Then last week it all came back...
  9. Ennis_TX - Your post rings true with me. I was only diagnosed in May, but from May through.... basically two weeks ago, I was out of my mind. I completely understand when you describe it. I had zero self control. I retired from the Army after 21 years and had always had pride in myself that I could...
  10. I have no answers for you, but am interested in this thread and want to follow it. I just had a "Positive" attached to my Tissue Transglutaminase, no number. So I am not sure if it was a weak positive or strong one. Either way they told me to go gluten-free which I did. Two months later at my GI...
  11. It’s only been about 4 months since my diagnosis and it sounds a lot like your BF’s. I did not have the vomiting, but did have diarrhea, reflux, blood in stools, rashes and no appetite. My biggest hurdle was, and although it has gotten better in the past two weeks, still is, the depression/anxiety. Sy...
  12. Irene, This too is my first post. I am very new to this site and disease, so I won't have much advice for you, but I can tell you that this Forum has been the best thing I've found. Check it often and like it on Facebook. (Thats where I seen your post) Other than the weight loss concern, you...
