    Post riceneuroni gluten-free diet

    Hi,

    I was just reading your posts about gluten-free diet. My husband was dxed with celiac disease about 2 yrs ago. His dx was based on biopsy of small intestine, but 2 separate blood tests came back negative. He tried gluten-free diet for a few months then had another biopsy which showed no change in small intestine, so he went back to normal diet.

    Just about a year ago he had surgery (for another problem) and woke up in agonizing pain. RSD was finally dxed after 6 months - with damage showing up on bone scan and xray.

    After reading posts about benefits of vitamin B12 and doing some research we started to wonder if there was a connection between the celiac disease and RSD because of vitamins not being absorbed properly. So he recently started the B12 and some other B vitamins.

    Now that I've read of your success on gluten-free diet and B12 I'm even more convinced there is a connection (at least in some cases).

    My husband is going to try the diet again to see if
    there's any improvement in pain. His pain has come down a little since starting elavil and doubling baclofen a couple of weeks ago.

    Anyway I just wanted to thank you for sharing what has been working for you. I'm very hopeful that it may also work for my husband.

    matb

    Hi matb, Welcome

    Thank you so much for taking time to come on and tell me this. It really is appreciated. I wish your hubby all the best in recovering. It really is a bear of a diet.

    It seems like it took a long time before I even noticed the slightest hint of feeling better. It wasn't until I found out that even foods that contained ingredients processed with gluten had to be eliminated that I really felt better - foods like white vinegar and a bunch of others - things I never suspected.

    I hope you and your hubby have a pleasant day.
