My story continues I have now reached intolerance discovery in addition to exploring if I fit celiac or ncgs not ibs as was thought for 19-20 years in the medical world. I went gluten free without diagnosis because my husband and I were the only ones to see I had gluten issues as my health issues escalated 3 years ago. My cousin is a diagnosed celiac. It is possible I found the Dr. that understands the immune system and those patients who are outside the textbook box for celiac. She has discovered my potential intolerance s. I have been working with her since May 2016. My diet currently must go on without almond, eggs, cod, pineapple, corn, white potatoes, celery, and possibly lettuce. We are proceeding on food dairy route to suss out the culprits above definitively and/or other additional potentials on this journey. I have reached the impasse of gluten challenge I fear and loathe. I admit you all said it was coming. I have been completely resistant to it. I knew prior to meeting her I had wheat issues from symptoms self diagnosed repeatedly . She noted I reacted to rye and barley. I gave up milk after being gluten ed in March. So next month I must do to myself what I said I would not. I finally found a physician who believes which is crucial to me even venturing there. How I wish I met her prior to going off gluten, but prior attempts to find out my troubles did not pan out and one Dr I had a possible chance left practice before my symptoms got real bad. I only found her by referral from another new allergist I visited. I romanticize next month I will eat all the gluten I miss- bagels, deep dish chicago pizza, hot pretzels, and hot dogs on buns. Maybe even a piece of chocolate cake. The reality is I will probably eat the minimum quota of bread or crackers required in pain and tears . I fear my irritability, joint, muscle, gi stuff is more than I can ask my family to bear. I hope to work but am concerned how that will go too. I guess I won't know until I'm in the thick of it. Hoping my intolerance s are not permanent but an issue of delayed healing. The cod and pineapple may be permanent because I have rarely eaten those since I initially went gluten-free, but those were regular in my diet when I first went Gluten-Free. The others were staples that I resumed in May as I thought I healed after my glutening March. We're you able to complete your challenge? Did you just eat plain bread/ crackers or did you eat gluten indulgent foods during your challenge? Did any of you find your intolerances lifted after diagnosis and healing? How long of a time span for intolerances to heal/resume? Lastly I appreciate any sentiment of good luck for the challenge and colonoscopy/ endoscopy. Thanks AWOL
