My name is Kendra, I have a great Dog (Maxwell) and a very loving and understanding boyfriend (Tim) that I've been with for over 5 years. I am an artist and currently love sculpting and mask making. I also enough movies and going to the dog park with my best friend.
I recently have been advised to completely cut Gluten out of my diet, they haven't officially diagnosed me with Celiac but advised me to do so anyways. Because I started noticing I would feel worse after having gluten filled foods. Not to mention its in just about everything we eat! Cereal for Breakfast, Snacks, Lunch, and Dinner? That's a lot of wheat!
It has been a pretty difficult year, which started with strange symptoms of chronic dizziness that came out of nowhere. Then came the migraines, anxiety, panic attacks, brain fog, fatigue, constant gas/bloating, and then the stomach and side pains. I have been to countless doctors for all of these symptoms, which would be viewed as being unrelated, yet they all seemed to happen at the same time. I have already noticed improvement from cutting Gluten out, and when I accidentally eat some I feel terrible again.
I also started seeing a fantastic Chiropractor who pretty much has changed my life, I virtually have little to no dizziness anymore. She too is on
the Gluten Free diet.
I recently found MDJunction and am so glad I did, there's so many groups to help so many people. One of the best feelings is from helping others who really need it. This community has already given so much and I hope to give back just as much.
