  1. I am so glad someone else mentioned oxalates. You sound like you have many of the same symptoms I had before I went on the low oxalate diet. I highly recommend going to that site and checking it out. It has changed my life, but always a work in progress. I am gluten free and low oxalate -- and unfortunately, dairy free, so life is pretty limited, but I feel so much better! I thought I was eating so healthy, but looking into the oxalate diet, the oxalates were toxic to my system!

    I had horrible headache for years. I found out it was the oxalates in food causing it. You should look into oxalates. Most information out there discusses the relationship with kidney stones, but they are slowly learning how toxic oxalates can be for some people. And especially how it can affect every organ of the body. I am a nurse and this has been a life saver for me. Eating some of the "best" nutritional foods is the worst for hyperoxaluria people. Check it out!
  3. P.S. Brown rice and carrots are medium/high in oxalates. I do not eat either anymore. I am also gluten free. My daughter has celiac disease, but my results have always come back negative, as well as almost every other test the doctors have run. Long, long story. I could go on for hours!
  4. Hello! Have you ever heard of oxalates? Many of your symptoms sound exactly like what I was suffering from. Most people, including health care providers, do not know anything about oxalates and their affect on all body systems. Hyperoxaluria is mostly researched in the renal system for kidney stones, but it can have many more debilitating effects. I went through a LOT of testing, including rheumatologists, neurologists, etc. They wanted to just pass it off as fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue. I knew better, as I am a nurse. There is a Yahoo group that I joined to learn so much more. It is terribly confusing, but it is an amazing transformation once you get everything under control.
