  1. Thanks, l couldn't get a screenshot of just the gluten sensitivity result 😉 As far as the coffee, it messes with me in general and l think is responsible for at least 75% of IBS in my case. For whatever reason, l was always under the under impression that NGCS wasn't something that could le...
  2. Hi all, l'd been looking into the possibility of celiac or gluten sensitivity a few years ago and ultimately wasn't able to have any testing done so l tried to resolve what issues l could on my own (was very underweight) and have tried gluten-free on and off since then. l did notice some...
  3. l'm not a big clear alcohol- drinker but l've been sticking with vodka based mixed drinks. Most of the add ins are pretty straightforward (vodka cran should be hard to sneak gluten into, l hope). If you patronize some regular spots, especially chains, you should feel totally...
  4. Hello again all, And Happy Holidays! l did 23andMe reports recently (ancestry only). From what l've read about the health reports, there are more accurate services and tools you can use with the raw data, so l didn't purchase the somewhat pricey health report from 23andMe...
  5. Oh my goodness, yeah, definitely did not have that. l thought it was just a basic dry eye test. l do but no dental problems or even cavities, my teeth have been my rock. My mouth is gross TBH so l'm not sure how, l'm drinking more water lately. l'm unfortunately a smoker...
  6. Btw l dont think l had the ''Schirmer's Test'' unless that was the machine with flashing lights help up to the eye? No ''mm'' result or anything, but they called that an eye pressure test. No puff test now.
  7. Thanks so much. Yep, l always blamed allergies and my left eye as like an ''allergy hangover''. It took me way too long to understand that unless something is damaged, it shouldnt hang around that way when l'm reacting to anything or after an attack. For me it's primarily...
  8. Thanks They did a few months back and l had the 4, D3 25K RX'd I so l am good there. l went into the underweight range so thyroid, D, potassium, and maybe some other things lm not aware of were screened for. The D and the potassium was low but all else normal. There are...
  9. Hey! So l went to the eye doctor, finally, this week and got prescribed Resatisis. l am hoping it will work, l didn't mention anything about suspected celiac or possible dry eye connection. l was happy enough to have the doc confirm and get something that might help the pain and inflammation...
  10. well, we're in sort of similar positions but can l ask what made you go gluten-free 3 years ago? You've kept the diet for quite some time so where the health problems serious? at the time was seeking testing not an option? For myself, l absolutely tried everything to gain weight...
  11. Thanks. l may be over thinking starch, most sources say it's usually made from corn or potato. *mostly* But l (TMI?) did get my period early after posting this so maybe the headaches and general hating life was due to that:P l hate suspecting gluten for everything. ...
  12. So l have some generic psuedoephedrine from Rite Aid without a lot number and no box. l called the pharmacy and asked about the gluten-free status and just got a phone number. It seems many companies make their generic products so without a lot number getting some info wasnt a direct...
  13. Not exactly but, when you have the rocking motion, does it feel sort of out of body? l really related to Awol's post. When l was about 5-9 years old l had what l thought were experiences being lifted out of my body. l think l told my mom once but l was an odd kid and l also told her...
  14. lm pretty surprised they never thought about gastro issues or celiac. l was around 10 when my mom said the docs also tested for lupus! l am not a lupus expert by any means but it seems more rare in kids and l had none of the symptoms. This would have been '94. One of the first...
  15. This is so crazy to me. my nails have been clubbed since childhood, not anything as severe as what you would see in pics if you googled it but enough for doctors to mention. l noticed today at work the front of my nails looked different, kind of smaller l kept staring and eventually...
