So I thought I could ask for gluten free products and recipes and you all would think maybe I was thinking about a friend and just needed some help. You all are presistent.
So here is the story. Didn't really want to share the story until next week but again you all are presistent. :)
Not really sure where to start but Thursday I went to see a doctor after a week of weird pain. My fingers and toes were swollen, my joints (wrists, fingers, knees, toes) all hurt. I couldn't put my bra on without hurting, couldn't turn my neck to look out the window while driving, sometimes my ars felt like they were falling asleep. I was nauseous and have had a headache every day for about a month. I wasn't sure if some of my signs were just silly or if I should go in. I had prayed I think Sunday night about it. Prayed that if I needed to go in and see a doctor my body would get worse. Well it sure did. So I went in Thursday and they started some tests. We talked for about an hour and he said while they run tests I should go off gluten. I went home and looked up gluten and a lot of symptoms I have had for awhile. Things I thought were connected to my dairy problems. Some symptoms I have had so long I didn't really know they shouldn't be normal or had forgotten they were abnormal. So as I wait for results from my tests I am cutting all gluten out. I am so excited that I may have found something that will make me feel better. Better then I have been in years!
Most of my pain has gone. My headaches are much fewer and I am not as swollen. It supposedly takes 6-8 weeks for the gluten free diet to really work but I think these are good signs.
