BibleBeltCatholicMom Posted September 1, 2012 Share Posted September 1, 2012 For years and years we thought my daughter had allergies (headach, dizziness, swollen glands, mucus, swollen eyes, sleep apnea, et c). AND' For years and years we thought she was lactose intolerant (yes . . . well . . . you know, very bad tummy trouble). AND Since she was a toddler she has gotten these AWFUL red bumps near her elbows and knees that don't look anything like the text book celiac rash but are super painful, super itchy, and in the right places. AND For the last several months she has had off and on bouts of over all achiness and nearly debilitating fatigue. We put her on a no processed, no gluten, no dairy, no sugar diet. In just two days she felt really really good. Then we were advised to put her back on her regular diet and have her tested for celiac disease. I did. Over the next two days she slept 20 hours! The bags under her eyes had bags. She felt hiddeous. and so did I. I'll never ever put her back on a regular diet again. And having resolved such a thing, that seems to eliminate the possibility of an accurate test. Well, so be it. If she feels great, why bother? On the other hand, I can see that it could be something else. Anyone else decide not to test? Did you change your mind? Why? Tell all!
