  1. Ohh wow this is amazing thank you ☺ (I will seek out the ingredients for these today!) I'm not the best cook and I'm ashamed to say I've never soaked anything over night! I have tried some gluten free recipes that have taken me out of my cooking comfort zone in the past fortnight, so I'm working u...
  2. Thank you ☺ this is great! I will join coeliacs UK today! That book would be great! Yes the good and bad days are a bit of an issue, I had a really good day yesterday, it's the best I've felt in what feels like forever! Like most people I've been reading posts from in here, it took a while t...
  3. Hi Bonnie, Thank you for this, yes lactose has been mentioned, what do you use to replace milk? Cheese etc? I will eliminate it to see if it helps with the Neuro symptoms, yes I definitely recognise the hungry bit! ?
  4. Hi Cristiana Yes definitely, I'm noticing the Neuro symptoms are the ones that seem to be clinging on mostly, but I guess time will tell with them, I do hope they go though as they're pretty unpleasant, as you said. I will definitely keep you up to date with the amytriptilyne, I've been...
  5. Hey there, Sorry for the delay in responding! Thank you for welcoming me in to the 'not celiac but still avoiding gluten club' ? well, I have been gluten free for 2 weeks now I believe! I have followed all of your advice and I've been really careful with everything! It takes some thinking to...
  6. Hi guys, I'm not sure how this works and if you'll get a notification of my update. I just wanted to let you know that I've had my results back and the gastroenterologist has said that I don't have coeliac but am gluten intolerant. She is increasing my levothyroxine and starting me on the small...
  7. ☺ I appreciate all of your help, and I had been feeling the same, it's not nice to take tablets especially ones such as that, which can be worrying, but I'm glad to hear that they are working for someone who is taking them ☺ so that gives me hope if I'm prescribed them. ☺
  8. Ahh, thank you, that's really good to hear! Sounds like your friend is doing really well! I will definitely be monitoring what I eat so hopefully I will lose weight in the process .... Having said that if Dairy Milk becomes gluten free then my good intentions may go out the window!!! ?
  9. This is great advice thank you! Yes I recognised amytriptilyne as an antidepressant when the specialist mentioned it and my reaction was like yours, I was very quick to point out that I wasn't depressed, exhausted and fed up but not depressed. She said that the amount she sold prescribe would be...
  10. Ohh you've had them for such a long time! That must be hard! Even without the headach the visual disturbances are really unpleasant! Feeling horrible for such a long time after was horrible! How do you manage on a day to day basis, in terms of commitments? I am worried about the impact on work if...
  11. Ahh thank you for this, my mother was right it turns out, she said to stay away from the contraceptive pill also! I have stopped them (the birth control) now, a few weeks ago, so I'm hoping it will help. I will also try the magnesium as soon as testing is finished, and the amytriptyline to if the...
  12. These are definitely the things I need to learn about, knowing what food combinations will maximise nutrient intake and what vitamin supplements to use (and how to make sure they absorb properly) this is where things seem to get complicated, I've never had to think so hard about food (whereas given...
  13. Hi Tessa, Thank you for this,I hope that the gastro specialist will test me for this as that would be very useful given that another Dr was going to put me on a mild anti convulsant medication, I would prefer to use a supplement such as magnesium rather than that. Although the gastroenterologist...
  14. Hi Cristiana Thank you for the message, I recognise what you are saying about the reading etc, I love to read but havent been able to since I had the first migraine, I have found that i struggle to focus, my vision is blurry and I feel sick and dizzy (like trying to read in a car). It's taken...
  15. Ohh you have my sympathy! I've never experienced anything like that, it was frightening! I didn't realise it was a migraine until the evening, I lost the vision 3 times in the morning but only with a fuzzy head, so I didn't think it was a migraine. All afternoon I felt rough and rested, but by the...
