Elliottohonedhome posted a topic in Post Diagnosis, Recovery & Treatment of Celiac DiseaseHey folks, I'm new here, and hoping to get some fresh ideas or insight into my situation. Gluten free going on 13 months, now. I have DH (severe on my hands) and I've come to realise I'm extremely sensitive, some "gluten free" processed foods and even rice trigger a reaction, so I've reverted to a basic paleo diet. All meat and all veges. Anyway, up until almost two months ago everything was great. I'd given up the rice (seemed to have withdrawal symptoms from stopping it) and felt really good - lots of energy, no fatigue etc. Also, my new girlfriend and her six year old moved into our home. Now, I know what you may be thinking or suggest, but we don't have gluten in our home. My girlfriend was inadvertently eating gluten free anyway due to eating an paleo type diet, and her son follows suit, so I'm sure they're not contributing to my glutening symptoms. Which started when we started redocorating the home. It all began when I stripped the old wallpaper off the walls for new paper - my DH Rash that was healed flared, so I stopped. Then we had two new wardrobes built in each bedroom which required knocking walls down and extending them which had dust everywhere. Within sleeping in that environment for a week things got bad. So, we both cleaned every inch of the house making sure there was no dust, then had new carpets all through the house - but I'm still sick! My DH is back with a vengeance and I have stomach cramping/knotting like when I did my gluten challenge along with fatigue and headaches. I keep saying the house can't be making me I'll, but then I stay at my mum's to test this theory and I improve. The headaches go and my DH goes pink then heals and fades. What could it be? I'm being driven insane. Am I going to have to move home? It's ridiculous. I personally thought it was the drywall dust, but surely with the cleaning and new carpet it should be gone?. Everything I eat is fresh. Meet and vegetables and soups all prepared by me. My main staples are chicken, sweet potatoes, carrots, swede, brocolli, mushrooms and kale. So it's not my diet. All thoughts and suggestions would be appreciated. I don't know if paint can contain gluten, but we used a Valspar V500 paint mix to re paint the house. Cheers. Elliott.
