  1. Pains/cramping in the gut 'can' cause back pain. It did for me.
  2. I did call the number on the box. GSK did buy the Novartis Gas X brand. I was given the same typical response. We don't use any wheat, rye, or barley. But since we don't do testing we can't guarantee other companies ingredients we use in the product could contain gluten.
  3. So my doc. recommended me to take Gas X. And of course I constantly read conflicting reports if it contains gluten here and on the internet. Whether they are chewables or gel caps form. I've read that 'Gas X' gel caps by Novartis are gluten free. But on store shelves I only see 'Gas X' gel caps by GSK (glaskosmithkline). Maybe GSK bought Novartis??????? Can anyone, who has done recent verification, tell me if 'Gas X' gel caps by GSK are gluten free.
  4. I found this if your into learning gluten-free Italian cooking on your vacation. https://getaway.jovialfoods.com/gluten-free-italian-style/
  5. Not a celiac retreat. But might be something I will do! Thanks for this. I spent a day for work in Prague. Went to Mustek area for dinner....not diagnosed at the time. Cool area to visit. Ya, you might see me there.
  6. Me too. Especially also for a single person like myself and who rarely cooked before diagnosed. I think it would be very useful and probably save the insurance companies a lot of money in the long run by reducing the doctors visits, urgent care stops, and medicines they prescribed.
  7. Which dairy free kefir product do you take? Something like KeVita? If so, which one.
  8. I was wonder if anyone knows of any retreats for struggling celiac's? A place to get away and get to help with diet, anxiety, etc. done by professionals.
  9. Thanks so much. I had blood work done a couple of days ago and everything is normal. I'm occasionally take a mag. powered another member suggested. Maybe I should it every day. I was only taking it when I woke up at night. I'm taking a 5 strain CVS brand probiotic. I will see about adding dairy free kefir and try to eat more whole foods.
  10. Is that true? I'm 7 months diagnosed and used to take very few prescriptions. I think I got cross contamination a few months ago and my gut hasn't been well since. It has caused me lack of sleep, anxiety, and increasingly more severe stomach pain. Now I'm on three prescriptions from cramping, sleep, and anxiety. Bentyl (cramping), trazodone (sleep), Sertraline HCL (generic Zoloft). Some of my pharmacists seem clueless when I ask about gluten in the prescription. They show me a drug list but I don't know if these ingredients contain gluten. Maybe my SIBO has returned and is getting worse and I'm thinking I'm being glutened. I'm seeing my GI doc. Friday.
  11. What prescription drugs hidden ingredients do you look for that contain gluten?
  12. Are you talking about this power? https://www.luckyvitamin.com/p-1009582-doctor-s-best-high-absorption-magnesium-powder-with-traacs-100-chelated-200-mg-7-1-oz
  13. My doc gave me some Xanax which puts me sleep but because it's addictive didn't give me many. After a month I stop taking it I started waking up sometimes sweating and because of previous pins and needles I was getting has me start taking generic Zoloft due to anxiety...he says. Had a bunch of blood tests and every is ok. Thought something else might be going on. The generic Zoloft don't seem to help me sleep ALL night and don't know if I want to take them because of side effects. I've only taken them for about 5 days now.
