Two Weeks Gluten Free

March 9th, 2010

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!

    I am so happy to hear you are feeling better! My Mom has fibro, and I’ve been trying to convince her to give a gluten free diet a shot. Think positive-where the mind goes, the body will follow. Here’s to your continued good health.

    I’ve been trying to talk my mom into going gluten-free too. She suffers from many of the same symptoms I do. Thank you so much for your support.

    That’s amazing! I just recently started a gluten-free diet to see if it will help with my hypothyroidism (and hopefully being able to stop taking medication for it). I’m two weeks in right now… haven’t noticed a lot of changes, but really enjoying trying new foods. Excited to see how I feel two weeks, two months, two years from now. Just wrote a blog post about some of the fun foods I’ve tried and what I’m loving/loathing about GF dieting. 🙂
