  1. When if I read the labels on the chip bag of Doritos and other Lays products, I was jumping for joy inside. Just enjoyed a snack bag of Doritos myself and they were wonderful. :)
  2. I am so with there. I was 29 when everything hit the fan with me. It was hard at times to adjust. Especially when you get those cravings for something that is totally off limits with gluten. For me, it was more with donuts. There is a gluten free bakery about 2 hours away from where I live,...
  3. I have more of the neurological side effects (brain fog and muscle jerks/twitches). Reaction time could be within the hour to 24 hours.
  4. Sending out a distress signal for anyone around. I have possibly just been glutened at work of my own stupidty (potluck day). Any suggestions on how to stop the process if I start showing symptoms? I do not want anyone at work to know to know of my problems.
  5. This happens even when I don't get glutened.
  6. Is there anyone out there who has some problems with depth perception and slightly skewed vision due to the gluten?
  7. I tried Pamela's flour and it works ok. (aside from being extremely expensive) I actually tried Pillsbury about a month ago and like it better tastewise and for the checkbook as well.
  8. So you have Celiac. Ok. But you can still live a relatively "normal" life, even with its ups and downs. We live with this disease knowing the cure is right there, staying away from gluten. Others are not so lucky with their diagnoses that have no absolute cure: diabetes, ALS, congestive heart...
  9. I start showing symptoms within the hour of ingesting gluten. Usually it is in the form of brain fog or every system in my body slows down to a crawl. It is only then a matter of time if I don't get to the Frankincense in time. I do agree with the other posts that it could very well be anxiety...
  10. It could because your body will have to work harder to continue healing and to work hard to digest whatever you eat. My opinion is this, lay off on any "hard to digest" foods, such as popcorn and processed foods. This will give your body an easier time to heal without having to do double duty....
  11. It is the same for me as well. My first reactions can appear from 1 hour-48 hours after ingesting gluten. The above posts are giving good advice. Hope your son gets better soon!
  12. I have been gluten free for about a year now, and have felt great. We had gone out to eat for my brother's birthday over the weekend, and he chose the place to eat. I was so very careful about what to eat or not eat while at the restaurant. The waitress even gave pointers on what would be glutened...
  13. How long have you not been eating dairy products? After a about month or so going without, start to slowly add it back into your diet. I had cut out all dairy when I went gluten free last year. When I started to add it back in, I found I could handle a small amount of any dairy. Felt like a lead...
  14. For me, it was more neurological symptoms, but yes you will revert back and forth for a while before things start to feel "normal" again. Your body will be more sensitive during this time of healing because it's recognizing the gluten for what it is, poison. I want to encourage to take the advice...
  15. It could be that your body is not able to handle any type of grain or starch at this time. When a body is at the start of the healing process, there could be other foods the body just can't handle at the time. This seems to be a common thread and topic among those who are starting the gluten free...
