Two Weeks Gluten Free
I had tears of joy streaming down my face as I drove home from the chiropractor’s office today. I had started going in for adjustments in January after I lost my balance on the stairs and essentially gave myself whiplash. Today I was pleased to hear that I only need to come in once every other week now. More importantly than that, my rheumatologist has given me permission to start stepping down off of my Lyrica. I imagine that I will have some withdrawal symptoms after being on that drug for over two years, but I hope to never have to take it again. It will take a month or more to completely step down off of the drug.
Even though I am very happy to have energy, more energy than I have felt in a long time, I fear that my pain will return, or that maybe this gluten free diet is having some weird placebo effect on my body and the results won’t last. I hope that this diet, this new way of living continues to heal my body. For now I am crying tears of joy!
