Well, It has been almost a year of feeling lousy: Joint pain, fatigue, foggy-mind, recent development of quite extreme lactose intolerance, and (did I mention?) fatigue.
I don't know if I officially need to eat a gluten-free diet, but after over a year of a variety of tests (sugar, thyroid, vitamins, brain MRI, artery tests, eyes, neck, etc.), I am going to try going gluten-free to see if it works.
I thought it was just busyness and getting older but friends (and now doctors) say it must be something else. The foggy-mind/blurred vision scared me.
I have cleaned out my cupboards and am trying to figure out how to not eat wheat but am wondering if anyone knows about this lifestyle. I have been bloated for the last few days. Every time I eat it is almost painful bloating. This is on gluten free foods. I didn't have that symptom before. I'm wondering if it is normal (and have posted to the Celiac Disease Team, but was wondering if anyone knew?
On another note, I am back to tracking food and exercise on SP. I have been gone for a while and have sporadically exercised. It is a new season in my life. I need consistency, accountability, and motivation for healthy living. Here we go.
