So my symptoms started randomly, got a huge wave of "brain fog" one day, honestly feels like yeast in my brain... headaches and what have you. So I honestly need to calm myself down because I keep thinking I have some deadly disease and sometimes it depresses me and gives me anxiety to just keep thinking about this, I don't want to have to worry anymore and just live with it.
So I realized that keeping away from gluten alleviates most if not all of my symptoms of "brain fog" and terrible moods. I don't have joint pain, only some minor pains when I have offending foods. I don't have stomach or intestinal pain at all, or if it is there it is very minimal. My symptoms mostly reside in my brain.
I have to stay away from mainly corn and gluten, and bananas also bother me. I can eat certain candies fine, like reeses and starburst but some reason skittles bother me if I have too many (maybe the dextrin?). I can't tolerate alcohol at all, if I have one beer or one shot within 15 minutes I instantly get into a bad mood, so I cannot drink whatsoever. Literally feels like an allergic reaction in my brain. Again, I have no stomach pains.
I just wanted to know what are the chances that this is lyme, celiac, or gluten sensitivity? I was tested for lyme probably 3 times within the past 8 or so years and all came back negative. Never had the igenex test though. I've also had a brain MRA, not an mri, and it came back normal. I wonder what an mri would show though.

My daughter has had celiac for about 7 years now, and from what you have described it does not sound like CD. Nor does it sound like lyme disease, i had lyme disease a few years back and it was horrible, i had severe flu like symptoms, my whole body hurt and i could hardly see straight it was that bad. I would get tested for CD to be sure, the docters kept telling us my daughter had a milk intolerance for years before some smart doctor finally tested her and was diagnosed. now she is doing just great. hope this helped alittle, good luck

Thanks for the reply. Your right in that it doesn't sound like Lyme... Unless I got some neuro strain or something but I doubt it. I'm leaning more towards food sensitivity. Thanks for the second opinion.
