I had the same symptoms and went to dr after dr - even Mayo Clinic. Someone suggested candida overgrowth so I cut out all flour, sugar, processed foods, dairy, etc. for a couple months. The minute I started adding foods back in I got headaches and fatigue and my "system" shut back down. For the last 4-5 months I've cut everything again and it seems like I might be stuck with this but I feel good! I hope cutting gluten alone helps her! If not, keep cutting and see what helps. Good luck!

If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.

Welcome. I see you got some good info from members too. I would put your daughter on gf and see how she does. I was constipated for years and had stomach problems and have been gf for 14 months and feel so much better. Keep us posted on how she is doing. Charlene

Welcome to the team. I have a friend who thought everyone went to bed every night with a stomach ache. Once she went gluten free, it cleared up that problem and several others. Going gf cleared up my skin and sinuses. (I also have to avoid dairy, corn and peanuts.) I hope your daughter can find the right foods to eat to help her feel better.
I had similar issues with my daughter - tons of docs, tons of tests, no diagnosis. I took her off gluten on a lark since a doc was recommending that I go off ("I will if you will" is pretty powerful in my house!) and she's been 100% better ever since.

I am on a mission to learn as much as I can about this gluten disease. I have a daughter who I believe may have this. Doctors can't find answer. She has been doctoring for years for abdominal pain, constant constipation, feeling full and just plain feeling sick. I hope through this site and all the knowable people someone will give me some incite. My daughter has had tests upon tests and no results. Help!
