Hi there,
I have been having the following symptoms (some for months/some
for years):

Migraines, menorrhagia (heavy periods), major, constant fatigue, tachycardia (I have 2 take cardiazam for it), periods of bradycardia, weight gain (I was always super thin all of my life until three years ago.), rare spells of complete weakness-feeling like I am going to die (My BP goes sky high, my HR goes high, and I shake badly.), I am thirsty all of the time-I probably drink over 2 gallons of water a day!, and really bad gas pains almost all of the time. Sometimes I get so much gas-I can't even move due to severity of the pain. I was living on GasX everyday, several times a day.

I posted to another board w/in this forum-the undiagnosed one. Anyway, some people came back and said that maybe it was celiac disease.

So, after googling celiac disease, I am TRYING a gluten free diet. I started yesterday morning. Yesterday I noticed a little gas/bloating-but a major reduction in my normal amount of gas. Today-no gas or bloating!!! Praise God!!!

Although I am feeling very nauseous. I have some sort of chest cold and I do not know if the nausea is due to the cold bug that I have or from switching to the gluten free diet.

Can any celiacs out there relate there experience of switching to a gluten free diet and how and when it changed their symptoms???

It would be great to know if this gluten free diet is working and/or is going to work! I plan on sticking to this "diet" for two weeks at least and then evaluating how things are with my body.

Thanks so much and God Bless!
J.
