    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    I was diagnosed celiac 5 + years ago. I was diagnosed with a biopsy and blood work. I immediately went gluten free and have been strict about my diet, consequently I have now been diagnosed with high blood pressure (I am definitely not overweight and I do exercise) that just came out of the blue...no one in my family has it. BUT the worst thing Is my inability to sleep. If I fall asleep I jerk awake after minutes and then will be up for several hours. So I will be up til 1 or 2 and the get up at 6 or 6:30. I am never tired and Get my 2nd wind about 9 in the evening. I now take sleeping pills! I love them.
