GFNomad...
My youngest daughter had a similar issue with migraines when she started puberty, which lead me to the same conclusion you did about hormones. Poor child had them bad, aura, throwing up, passing out.

As soon as her hormones evened out she was okay.
I suspect she'll get migraines again, when going thru menopause, but chances are I won't be around to tell her "I told you so" as I had her relatively late in life. LOL

Docs tried her on some medications... none of them worked.
So we were both overjoyed when they stopped of their own accord.

Sorry to hear your issues with migraines. They are really debilitating. Migraines are often triggered by foods but not so much by gluten. Here is an article from the Mayo clinic on migraines and it's triggers. www.mayoclinic.com/health/migraine-h

Mine were mostly hormonal. Once I went into Menopause, my migraines disappeared.

Welcome o the team and also you need to look at all products to see if there is wheat n them too. I am talking about shampoo's conditioners, lotions etc

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.

hey Smatsch!

Sorry to hear about the migraines, weight gain and celiac diagnosis.

It would be helpful if we had more information about your habits and lifestyle so that we can give specific recommendations. There's a solution for every puzzle, but the more pieces we have the easier it becomes. That's where you come in.

What does your diet look like... what's a typical days' worth of food consist of?
Do you cook most of your meals at home, or do you rely on prepared meals, restaurant food?

What minerals, vitamins and supplements do you take?
Have you checked all your vitamins and supplements ingredient list for sneak gluten?
Do you take any prescription medications?

Has your thyroid been checked? Sometimes with celiac, you'll develop autoimmune thyroid disease. That's what happened to me.

Unfortunately all of Spark's preplanned menus rely on gluten containing grains.
But you can get around this by creating a library of foods specific to your needs and tracking your nutrients. Tracking is a real eye opener. You'll be surprised at the calorie count in some foods and the portion sizes. Using measuring cups and a scale for the higher calorie items, really helps too at first... until you develop and "eye" for a proper portion.

Why not fill in your Sparkpage when you have a chance so that team members can leave goodies and comments?

Welcome to the Celiac Team!

If you think you are beaten, you are.
If you think you dare not, you don't.
If you'd like to win but think you can't,
It's almost certain you won't.
Life's battles don't always go
To the stronger or faster man,
But sooner or later, the man who wins
Is the man who thinks he can. (Walter D. Wintle)

Hi, I'm Susanne. I was diagnosed with celiac disease two years ago. I have chronic migraines, and had requested my doctor test me because I felt like had several of the other symptoms. I had hoped going gluten free would help with my headaches, but it hasn't. I have found that I have gained a lot of weight since going gluten free, and so now I'm trying to get back on track with eating healthier and exercising more. I just started using this website, and it seems helpful.
