I am wondering if your like me with constipation before celiac diagnosis rather than text book diarrhea? After I got off all gluten AND milk I became regular. Maybe if you think your digesting too slowly try to eat a lot more vegetables and fruits to speed up the process. Extra water can't hurt either. .
Good luck with your ablation! My moms husband had a cathedar ablation done for afib and has had zero episodes since!! I'm going to go see an electrophysiologist soon to see what can be done if anything about mine. I only have a low sudden cardiac death risk but I imagine it will only get worse the older I get and the risk higher.
Well it's been awhile since I posted but the doctor told me everything was fine on my holter event recorder and just PACs in couplets and bigeminy. Well I refused to take off my moniter because they hadn't caught the runs of palpitations I've been getting. And guess what I recorded two runs- bad news it's nonsustained ventricular tachyicardia ( NSVT ) and atrial tachycardia. Boo! needless to say very frightening. Luckily my heart is structurally normal so as of now I'm waiting to see an electrophysiologist for a treatment plan if any. Anyone else on hear going through this?!
I'm grain free too- but wondering what you do for breads and starches? I don't do anything but sweet potatoes and vegetables and sometimes white potatoes but rarely. Do you eat beans too?? Just really curious about your diet as I'm only less than 6 months into mine. I eat tons of fruit but im hungry and it's so convenient. .
I have to eat paleo diet like... Mostly no dairy, but every now in then I'll have a string cheese, no grains for me since I'm allergic to all grains. I don't even eat coconut breads or anything like that. I've found it to be quite easy but the beginning was difficult. I eat an almond banana smoothie for breakfast or sauteed cabbage/kale/spinach/arugula with s piece of turkey bacon (nitrate free organic) with a sweet potato sometimes too. I eat salads for lunch with veggies and advocate , and meat and veggies for dinner. It's easy once you get used to it. I snack on fresh fruits and sometimes dried fruits. I'd like to consume less fruit sugars but I really can't take more out of my diet. I even eat fava beans for breakfast drizzled with olive oil and lemon juice salt and cumin and it's delicious. I do eat eggs sometimes but they bother my stomach which my allergist believes is because they eat so much grains themselves.
I went to an allergist and was food tested and found out I had many allergies. Why don't u try going to an allergist and that way insurance would cover it?? If I did it without the allergist and sent in my blood to be tested like my chiropractor suggested it would have put me back 1k.
I have the same white callous too on both feet but the doctor isn't worried about that. My legs get slightly lacy when cold but it doesn't happen often... But it happened at the dermatologist so it must have happened for a reason. The tiny little rash I have is super tiny and comes up with heat especially after shower. Raynoulds is nonexistent in summer.
Thank you all so much for your positive attitudes and replies. It means more to me than I could really put into words. I'm just so stressed lately with so many things coming on me in the last 6 months and have remained positive until yesterday when I was told I needed to be tested. No I don't have the butterfly rash- my symptoms are mottled skin when cold- but not always and a small lace like race that pops up after shower is usually when it occurs. I have other symptoms as well but they could be so many other things- raynoulds I do have but have never been formely diagnosed.
So should I be expecting my bloodwork to come back positive since we have high inflammation levels anyways with celiac? And if she diagnosis lupus I guess that means I should get a second opinion?? I don't have a rash on my face just mottled skin on legs when cold sometimes and also a rash I've had for three years that crops up when I get hot out of the shower- otherwise I don't notice it.
I'm wondering if everyone with raynoulds if you also experience mottled like skin when cold- like a lacy overlay on ur skin?? My dermatologist saw this today on my skin and now I'm being tested for lupus and antiphosophlipids etc. I'm scared to be diagnosed with yet another problem.
