I'm wondering about gluten. I was tested for sensitivity to it and the test was negative. My doctor suggested trying gluten free anyway (along with dairy, eggs and nightshades along with many other foods) just to see. I will say that I had a digestive improvement from not eating gluten, however it did nothing for my brain power or my fatigue. After a month of no difference, I decided the sacrifice was not paying off and started eating it. Again, there was no difference in my thinking or energy level, but I did experience some mild gastric symptoms upon reintroduction. Same thing with eggs, but no other foods seemed to affect me. My fatigue continues and I'm desperate to regain a normal life. I'll be 50 soon and feel my good years are being wasted. Changes of medications make temporary improvements, but nothing lasts for long. Armour helped for a while. Salt baths helped for a while. Vitamin D helped for a while. None of the other supplements that my doctor recommended made any difference. I'm thinking about trying gluten free again for a more sustained period just to see, but I so don't want to. I enjoy bread. I enjoy cookies. I enjoy sandwiches. I wondered if anyone had any thoughts. Has anyone tried going gluten free and found there was no improvement for a sustained amount of time only to see improvement later?
