I unfortunately haven't been following the right diet as I was told to, thinking it won't make any difference. Well nearly 20 years later and I am paying for it. I have not had quite enough of feeling tired, awful pain, headaches, no energy, nauseas, constipated, diarrhea, bloated, constant flatulence and stressed about all of above. I decided to go gluten and dairy free and that was 4 days ago. I will say desperate measures call for desperate times and I believe I've done the right thing. I know it won't be an overnight change to my body but with this lifestyle change I am starting to feel a bit more human and dare I say not uncomfortable all the time. It's not the easiest diet to follow as almost everything in the universe has wheat in it. But, after just the slightest relief I have had has given me the insentive to go all the way and be happy and whole again. I will say that my mum has crohns (stoma) and ulcerative colitis. Whether this makes a difference to me or not I don't know. Can I ask if anybody out there might be able to give me some advice as to whether I'll be able to get prescription food for my gluten free or would I have to have celiac disease? Also howcome have docs never said I have that although I haven't lost unexpected weight with my condition. Maybe it is just IBS A but gluten free does wonders for me. Anybody out there have any ideas?[/b:d124e90098]
