  1. Thanks jerseyangel.
  2. Oops! When I refreshed the page it didn't work the first time and even tried going back to the main page and start over. Oh well, it works now and I appreciate all of your help.
  3. This avatar/picture thing is frustrating. I've gone to update avatar, inserted my picture and it still doesn't work...
  4. Just testing my picture. I thought you had to do it through My Control and then personal photo. I hope this works.
  5. Hi, I added a personal photo this morning and it doesn't show up when I post a comment. I logged out and logged back in, but it still didn't work. My photo shows in my Control Panel, so I was hoping you would help me out. Thank you.
  6. Sounds neat. Can I buy one of these at, say, Wal-Mart or did you have to go to a specialty store for kitchen appliances?
  7. Hi Everyone, I also have/had ear problems for many years. I went to see my ENT late last year & the infection that time was viral, so he gave me this cream to put on/in my ear. The weird thing is that when I eat soy or dairy or eggs, or cross-contamination with gluten from my kitchen, the reaction I get is in my ear, always my left ear. I don't get an infection in my inner ear, but I get this thick fluid in the upper part of my ear. It can last anywhere from 1 to 5 days, on the average. So, when this happens I use the cream he gave me and that helps until whatever I ate makes its way out of my system. I never attributed my other ear infections to celiac, until I started paying more attention after my last visit with my ENT. Good luck with your testing twinsmom, I hope they find a solution for you. BTW, how is the RedBridge? My husband said he'd switch to it and I would greatly appreciate your comments on it.
  8. JNBunnie1 is definitely right when she says melaton works. I have celiac disease and had a problem waking up 2-3 times a night, but I have found melatonin works great. I take 2-3 mg before I go to bed and get wonderful sleep! My husband takes the same amount, but his daughter takes 6mg, so everyone is different. It is a natural hormone & anti-oxidant (no other hormone in a persons body is both) produced in the pineal gland, located in your brain. The fact that it is also an anti-oxidant means it helps build the immune system, not just aid in sleeping. Some people produce less of this hormone than others, therefore getting less sleep. I don't know if this low production is caused by celiac/gluten intolerance problems, but I do know it helps me sleep. My husband went without melatonin for two nights in a row and didn
  9. I don't know if you still read this Missnbagels, but here is the information I have: Sleep- I have celiac disease and had a problem waking up 2-3 times a night, but I have found a fabulous solution - melatonin. I take 2-3 mg before I go to bed and get wonderful sleep! My husband takes the same amount, but his daughter takes 6mg, so everyone is different. It is a natural hormone & anti-oxidant (no other hormone in a persons body is both) produced in the pineal gland, located in your brain. The fact that it is also an anti-oxidant means it helps build the immune system, not just aid in sleeping. Some people produce less of this hormone than others, therefore getting less sleep. I don't know if this low production is caused by celiac/gluten intolerance problems, but I do know it helps me sleep. My husband went without melatonin for two nights in a row and realized it was because he had forgotten to take melatonin. He hasn't forgotten since. I buy it at my local health food store, but it is available at grocery stores as well. I buy 1mg tablets (it also comes in 3mg & 5mg) and for 120 it costs me just under $7.00. I believe it would be well worth the money, considering how much time and effort it takes to narrow down what is causing it. It may just be a low melatonin production due to having celiac disease, since so many of us have a problem sleeping, but that is just my hypothesis. Please read the book, "Your Body's Natural Wonder Drug - Melatonin" by Russell J. Reiter Ph.D. and Jo Robinson. It retails for about $23. A friend of mine, who is a fellow celiac, suggested it to me and I will be forever grateful. Please consider these options. You will notice a difference the very first night. Some people require more than others, so experiment on what works for you. Oh yeah, there is no toxic amount of melatonin, so don't worry about how much you have to take. Headaches- These may be caused in part, by your lack of sleep. From what I have read for a natural remedy for headaches is to use salicin. It is the main ingredient in aspirin and is the active component in white willow bark. I hope you and others with these problems see this and find some relief. Good luck and sweet dreams.
  10. I have celiac disease and had a problem waking up 2-3 times a night, but I have found a fabulous solution - melatonin. I take 2-3 mg before I go to bed and get wonderful sleep! My husband takes the same amount, but his daughter takes 6mg, so everyone is different. It is a natural hormone & anti-oxtidant (no other hormone in a persons body is both) produced in the pineal gland, located in your brain. The fact that it is also an anti-oxident means it helps build the immune system, not just aid in sleeping. Some people produce less of this hormone than others, therefore getting less sleep. I don't know if this low production is caused by celiac/gluten intolerance problems, but I do know it helps me sleep.

I believe it would be well worth the money, considering how much time and effort it takes to narrow down what it causing it. It may just be a low melatonin production due to our problem and not any food item at all, but I am not ruling out the food option either.

Some people require more than others, so exiperiment on what works for you. Oh yeah, there is no toxic amount of melatonin, so don't worry about how much you have to take. Good luck & sweet dreams!

  12. I know what it is like to not be able to sleep, because of too much noise. I don't sleep well anyway, so I take melatonin to help me get the rest I need. My husband and his daughter also take it and it works fabulously. I take two to three mg per night and so does my husband. I buy 1mg tablets (it also comes in 3mg & 5mg) and for 120 it costs me just under $7.00. His daughter takes six mg per night, so it just depends on the person taking it. Melatonin is a natural hormone & an anti-oxtidant (no other hormone in a persons body is both) produced in the pineal gland, located in your brain. The fact that it is also an anti-oxident means it helps build the immune system, not just aid in sleeping. You will notice a difference the very first night.

  13. I tried to post three items yesterday and none of them have shown up. I read this before I posted a quite lengthy response, so I copied it to a Word document before I hit "Add Reply." Can this be fixed soon. I'm new and enjoy this site very much, so I would like to participate in some of the forums. Thank you for your attention to this problem.

  15. Oops! I guess I didn't read this from the top about frequent urination, but I think the melatonin will still help by helping you have a deeper sleep than normal, that way your urination problem might not wake you up as often. This doesn't resolve the problem behind the frequency, but like I said, it may help you get better sleep in the mean time.
