I am so glad to hear from you. I was wondering where you had gone!! I am so sorry to hear about your continuing problems. I have not heard of anyone having both MS and Celiac's but it does not surprise me. I try to avoid all gluten because it is "inflammatory". Some extremists say to avoid dairy and gluten in your diet with MS. I have done the no dairy thing for over a year and now I am trying to do the no gluten. So far, I have only managed low gluten.
Good luck with your CT scan and please let us know what they find!!! Email me if you want any good suggestions on the no gluten diet. There is tons on the internet about it. It is not easy at first but they say it gets easier.

Hey stranger (katie),
Come back and let us know how you are? Are you feeling any better/worse? Have you gotten any results on your bloodwork on the gluten allergy? I have been thinking of you.
I am glad you are feeling better. You are doing great on adapting. I hope this gets easy for you to manage very soon. I too have noticed that my tummy is not so bloated when I avoid gluten. I have done no dairy for a while now.
Thanks for posting. This is a wonderful, uplifting post!!
I read up about "leaky gut" and the MS connection. It really makes a great arguement for healthy eating in order to manage MS better.
Sunny sent me the good good pig.......it is a great read. It is about a self described introvert and social outcast (Sy). Sy rescues a runt pig and keeps him as a pet. This pet brings people into Sy's life and essentially cures her outcastedness. It is so good.
I am reading (slowly!!!!) John Steinbeck's East of Eden. I love it. It is really wonderful. I have been boring poor Rhonda with the details, hence her movie reference! Hahaha. I also LOVE George Elliott's Silas Marner. I have The Shack but I have not read it yet. My recent faves are The Kite Runner, Snow Flower and the Secret Fan and Water for Elephants.
