I'm healing from that week where I'd added wheat and gluten for my elimination testing for lupus triggers (how I learned I'm gluten-intolerant!). It took a couple of weeks cos though ignorance, I made some booboos.
I'm happy to report I've had a few days PAIN-FREE (gut, at least). I've gone decades not having a completely pain-free gut! My face is healing from that last explosion and I hope my hair will fill back in soon. I've had less fevers, too. Those autoimmune symptoms are really getting better GF!
I've still had occasional headaches and I found a "funny" symptom:
I've had two instances where I ate something I knew had gluten in it but less than 2%. I was aware--I was "testing!"
Well, what happens is...
I ITCH! Like crazy. I don't even recall this symptom before but coworkers and family were worried because I'm digging like a dog with fleas!
It's interesting to note because while I knew both of these instances (the itching began about 4 hours after consuming the contaminated product), in the FUTURE, if I start itching and had a new food, I can assume it contained gluten.
This is actually quite the learning experience. I'm also having some "wins" on baking and cooking, which makes me feel good as I'm a baker-nurturer (I'm the one who makes stuff from scratch and gives you home-cooked foods!).
I'm so thankful to know that I'm gluten-intolerant, so I can be healthier!
