  1. Long read......Hi, I’m seeking some guidance here because I’m suspicious that I have at least a gluten intolerance because of constipation, bloating, tiredness, and hives. Here’s some background: I’m 18 years old. When I was 16, I started suffering from chronic hives that seemed to have no cause. We changed soaps, detergents, medicines, avoided allergens, etc, but I only got worse. I had extensive blood work which turned out normal in every area and eventually was sent to a counselor and put on Prozac (unrelated) for anxiety. After awhile, I just assumed the hives were caused by stress. I’ve had hives nearly every day since. 3-4 months ago, I had horrible sore throats that resembled strep. I developed horrible exhaustion to the point where I nearly fell asleep in class and took naps every day, which I never could do, and went to bed at 9:30-10. The strep tests came back negative twice, and eventually I was tested for mono which also came back negative. Soon after, I developed random bouts of canker sores all over my tongue, lips, and cheeks. Once one went away, another would develop. Now, I get them all over my tonsils as well, and I have pimple-like bumps in the back of my throat. I went gluten free for a week and the hives went away completely. I saw my doctor after this and explained the sores, hives, and exhaustion, and she shrugged all of it off, saying I needed to “eat better” because it would fix all of it. She would not test me for any conditions (celiac, hypothyroidism, Hashimoto’s, deficiencies, etc) and said I shouldn’t go into college self diagnosing myself with something I don’t have. I’ve reintroduced gluten and for two weeks I was fine, but lately I’ve been sleeping up to 12 hours at night and then taking 4-5 hour naps during the day. All I do anymore is sleep and I feel like it’s actuallyruining my life, on top of the horrible mouth sores!! How can I be tested? Do you have any ideas what the problem might be?
  2. I was diagnosed celiac approx. 5 years ago and have been eating gluten-free. My 15 yr old son was just diagnosed 6 months ago and has been doing well with his gluten-free diet. We are both suffering from exhaustion and he feels brain fogginess at times. I have had problems with b12, low iron and ferritin levels, but the seems to be “normal” and I’m still exhausted to the point I can’t keep up with my family, need naps throughout the day, etc. My son is the same. He’s going to have to pull out of sports until we resolve our problems. Can anyone offer some help or suggestions? Thank you.
  3. Hi guys. I really need help/someone to listen/someone to understand. Today was absolutely horrible. I started out feeling fine this morning just a little tired but by noon or so an incredible headache washed over me and I've been sick the rest of the day. The headache wouldn't stop and along with it came stomach pain and worse joint pain than I normally have. I came back from class and basically passed out on my bed for hours and woke up to even worse joint pain and a nonstop gurgling uneasy stomach. Lately I'm so thirsty nothing quenches my thirst and I cant even sleep through the night because I have to pee so many times the amount of water I'm drinking. I've been trying so hard to be careful and not contaminate myself. I'm not sure if this is contamination or healing. Can recovery really be this painful? I'm 2.5 weeks into recovery. I couldn't stop crying this afternoon I just wanted it all to go away and I don't know if it's from me not being careful or this is just part of the process. I feel so defeated I have no energy, I don't even remember the drive back home today from classes. If I had the choice to stay in bed all day today I would have and probably slept the entire time. I eventually mustered up the strength for a quick shower and to vent on here. I just don't know if I'm even doing anything right...I read all the books I got and asked the forum questions and I follow all the wonderful advice given to me... I just feel pretty down today because I just want to be better already I can't live this way everyday.. It's especially hard around this time of the year since I have finals which are especially important since I'm a senior and need to pass because I'm graduating in May. All day today I just wished someone was here to take care of me which is very unlike me since I'm way too independent for my own good. I'm just very overwhelmed
  4. Hello everyone. I have only been gluten-free for two weeks now but I felt like by day 6 or so I was feeling decently energetic and okay. Now I'm two weeks in and these last couple days I'm absolutely exhausted, irritable, moody. I know this is super early in recovery but why would I have started to feel decent then bad again? Is it normally like a roller coaster, one day you feel good the next you don't? I know your body needs to heal so it makes sense that you would be tired. I guess im nervous about not being careful enough and glutenating myself and not even knowing it because I dont know what good feels like yet and never feeling better. I also notice lately my anxiety is crazy. I'm thinking this has to do with adjusting to my new routine in the kitchen. I think now that I know gluten is whats been making me sick I'm afraid of it. Is that weird? The other day there were crumbs everywhere in the kitchen and pasta left out with some on the counter from my roommate and I basically looked at it as if there was human feces smeared on the counters. I'm afraid to touch anything and I keep washing my hands nonstop. Is this normal? Does it go away when you get into a better routine? Sorry this turned into more of a rant about various things. Hope you can follow. Thanks guys.
  5. A lot has happened since I last blogged. There are obivous reasons for me being tired; I have two kids under the age of 3, I'm a celiac, I've got hypoglycemia...yadda yadda. There are not so obvious reasons; chest pain at night, ache down the arm, lymphnodes swollen up neck (Cat scan confirmed), noduel on thyroid (cat scan confirmed), scar tissue in left cerebral hemisphere (MRI scan). My only concern is the swollen lymph nodes. The experience with lymph nodes was non hodgkins lymphoma. I seem to be an angry bear when I eat or drink sugary stuff. My neck seems to swell up more too. I get a head ache or migrane or am generally not with it. I had an frightening experience the other night, I don't know how it's related to the majority of the postings, but I woke up 2 hours after sleeping and the bone in my forearm was numb. The skin, the muscle was normal but the done inside was totally numb. The are ached real deep, so I just kept moving it like it were a normal numb foot or hand experience. After about a while it got better so I laid back down. I had been sleeping on my stomach with my head turned to one side. I don't normally sleep like that. So...my diet has changed based on those responses. I'm cutting the sugar way down. The sugar I get is from the Silk brand coconut milk (original flavor). I eat fruit, have organic gluten-free corn flake cereal. I'm just really wowing you now aren't I. lol I sure miss sugar. But it does not make me feel better. Not at all. I'm taking: gluten-free Women's NutriGold multi vitamins Swason's copper supplements with vegetable glaze (glaze keeps me from throwing them up) EnzymeScience Intolerance Complex Country Life's Ginseng Supreme Complex Vitamin K supplement when I need it *I need to have a regular exercise. It needs to be every week so that my system has time to work out junk in my lymphnodes. Drinking water and stressing out around the house or sitting on my rear doesn't flush the system like exercise does. Note: it is overwehlming to talk to doctors about my health history. They ask too many questions, I provide too much information. Makes for a depressing day for both people. There is no instant cure. It takes time, experience, knoweldge and lots of prayer. "Keep showing me Lord, I don't want to fall behind. You are my Great Healer, you'll get me there at the right time. Amen!" With more thought to this entry; I'm going to look up some various things that could be linked to the experiences with sugar and the arm bone falling asleep as well as my exhaustion. There is a possibility that I have leukemia. I'm appearing to have a majority of the symptoms except the blood test for white blood cell counts and the bone marrow test. I've had a bone marrow test back when I finished cancer treatments at the hospital, they warned me I would need to have a bone marrow transplant if I had to do chemo again. No thanks. I'd like to do what I can that is provided here on the earth and trust God for healing if He desires to heal me. There could be greater reason for me to suffer and bear my cross than just "find a cure! panic..." that's just futial. What's the purpose of a story that's helps educate others and build their faith if everyone found healing from mankind in the hospital? Hospitals have not always existed, neither have doctors. God has. So let's utilize His healing power and seriously show up this world's view of "cure".
  6. Hello! I've recently taken my son, aged nearly 4, to the doctor as he has been suffering for at least a year with persistent tiredness, irritability, tummy bloating, poor appetite, very waxy ears and nail ridges. In the past month he has had at least 3 infections, and seems to take longer to get over bugs than his one year old brother. I took him to the docs because he has developed dark circles under his eyes and has had several tantrums apparently caused by exhaustion, even on days when we have done relatively little exercise. Having said that, sometimes he can have a really good day and my husband and I question whether we are being paranoid by getting him tested for illness! The doctor diagnosed anaemia after I insisted on a blood test (he said anaemia was rare in non-vegetarian children like my son) and gave us iron liquid, which we have to sneak into my son's food and drinks. My mother in law is a diagnosed coeliac, so I asked about a test for that but the doctor was reluctant to do it unless my son had been on the iron liquid for two months, improved and then relapsed into anaemia. After my son had a particularly bad week I asked to be referred for a private test, which has come back negative (ttg less than 0.1, hb slightly improved from 115 to 118 after a month on supplements). The consultant we saw is checking the IgA level, which I understand can cause a false negative if it's low, but it looks like we are going to have to traumatise my son further by having another blood test to rule out wheat, dairy and egg allergies. I suppose my question is, has anyone's child had similar symptoms and tested negative on the ttg, but improved on a gluten-free diet? It is just impossible to do anything with my son sometimes as he is so irritable, and I am concerned that when he starts school in September he will be labelled a 'problem child'. He has already been referred for special needs assessment by his preschool because he does not want to join in with many activities. I am tempted to try going gluten-free anyway to see if it makes him feel better, especially as my husband (also negative on coeliac test) has many coeliac-like symptoms. Any experience, suggestions or advice very gratefully received! I'm feeling a bit at my wits end, as you can probably tell...
