    Any successes out there from getting out of daily brain fog, depression, eye pain, and fatigue, and un socialability, lack of excitement et. ??


    Make sure you are truly gluten free, and it does go away. You can also try puzzles or Soduku, the brain, like muscles needs to be used to keep healthy. The fog does go away though, have patience.

    I self diagnosed after reading ” Living Gluten free for dummies” , went GF and I knew within 3 days that I was intolerant.  

    I told my GP and he said ” If it hurts, don't do it.” and walked out of the room !!!! He has also refused to prescribe any allergy tests, said to avoid foods that don't agree with me.

    So I am having a hard time getting any of my family ( sister is a nurse, Father was a surgeon, mother was a nurse ) to consider having tests done. They find it hard to imagine not eating bread, so they wont try it.

    Personally I feel its much better to know, and be able to choose what I eat, rather than being sick all the time and not knowing why. 

    Im keeping a food diary now, and this has helped me to realize that I also have a problem with corn, which I was hoping would not be the case, but the rumble in my gut, along with the headache and the ringing in my ears is telling the truth.

     I havent had any formal positive tests, but I am going by what is the only really important measure to me, and thats what my body says is good or bad. I guess I just have to live with the doubters and cynics.

    Thank you all to those who answered, I realized today that it was corn that was causing the Tinnitus and the headaches, whereas wheat seemed to cause more abdominal symptoms. I would have never been able to figure this out without keeping a food diary, and I was really hoping that I was okay with corn…..  sigh …  oh well, better to know than to be sick all the time.

    Hello Lori

    I have tried probiotics pills but the results have been mixed. I guess I should look into that more.

    Thanks
