  1. Posterboy! i did the baking soda test and didn’t burp until minute 17! So I got the Betaine HCL and it is like a miracle. I have suffered severe acid reflux for years and the betaine completely eliminated it. I still cannot believe how much better I am. I am still very bloated but I am hoping o...
  2. Posterboy, uh, WOW! Thank you SO much! I will absolutely read all the links and do the baking soda test. I am floored by all the info you provided. WOW!!! I have been wondering about low acid. I have unbelievable acid reflux, even after having surgery to correct it. I’ve heard it isn’t nec...
  3. Yep, licorice. Green apple I used to love. After 10 mos gluten free one bite made me so ill I couldn’t believe it. It was so bad that I will never touch gluten again. But if it hadn’t happened the word “celiac” would never have come into my doctors consciousness.
  4. Ok, I’ll try a probiotic. I already avoid dairy and soy. Hopefully it will help. Thanks!
  5. Are any of you really bloated despite being gluten free? My abdomen is very hard/distended. After a year of no gluten, my other celiac symptoms have greatly improved but this hasn’t improved at all. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
  6. Wow. Thank you for sharing sharing your story. So how sad is it that my initial instinct was to congratulate you on your diagnosis! Of course they wanted to give you antidepressants. Honestly I think doctors think if they give us happy pills, we’ll just go away. I hate that you’ve suffered so ...
  7. Wow, I hate that your doctor treated so badly. Here’s hoping you’re right about karma. I feel like many doctors have a god complex. Its like they thought I was stupid and due to my lack of a medical degree, couldn’t possibly know that something was actually wrong with my body. I am just so tired...
  8. Yeah, dairy is definitely not my friend. I seem to be able of handle a little mozzarella cheese, but milk, ice cream etc. are no go.
  9. SO basically i need to go low carb to get rid of this bloat and terrible gas. That makes sense. Even though my other symptoms are so much better with no gluten, the bloat/gas hasn’t really improved at all. Thanks for the info. I hadn’t thought bacteria was the problem.
  10. Interesting you say that. I was diagnosed with hashimotos thyroiditis several years ago before and GI symptoms cropped up. Later severe acid reflux caused me to have major surgery to control it. Now I am wondering if it’s been celiac all along. I’ll try the tea and pepto. My bloating is so sev...
  11. Thank you SO much! If you ship any of your baked goods as far as Granbury, please let me know. Good luck with getting into the food truck business. We need you!
  12. tessa25, Ennis_TX. Thank you for replying. I will absolutely look into the Nima. I had no idea anything like that existed. Any help, lists, links, you care to share I would greatly appreciate. I try to be vigilant about gluten but I obviously screwed up today. I feel terrible. You’re right Tessa25...
  13. I apologize in advance for the long post. I am extremely frustrated with my doctors. A year ago, I saw 3 different doctors for extreme bloat, yellow diarrhea, stomach and back pain. (Also had migraines, chronic fatigue, red splotchy face and brain fog, but didn’t connect them). I told all 3 doctors t...
