Thursday Thirteen - symptoms before going gluten free
Thirteen symptoms Twisted Cinderella felt of Celiac (Gluten intolerance).
Since I was recently asked what my symptoms were before going gluten free, I figured I would share them this way.
bloating and horrible cramping of my abdomen
diarrhea (especially after eating certain foods) and gas
exhausted/no energy at all. It would take me all day just to get the dishes done
extremely dry skin
Muscle cramping in the legs
random unexplained rashes
previous diagnosis of irritable bowel syndrome
joint pains (I felt like I was a old lady with painful joints a lot of the time)
chronic sinus problems
I would have strong reactions to foods while eating out and my reactions seemed to lesson somewhat as I began to limit certain foods. When I went completely gluten/dairy free, they disappeared entirely and when I tasted a little to test, I had a horrible reactions again.
**NOTE TO MY FRIENDS** Come on in for a nice cup of coffee and a chat about my weight loss journey as well as all the healthy recipes I have found, including WW points and/or nutritional information if available. I am eating a vegetarian diet and concentrating on getting healthy and hopefully weight loss will follow. Thank to all my readers for their ongoing support.
