I have never seen that in the stores around here Ruth, I will have to do some more hunting.  There are three grocery stores in this area and a Food Co-op, I will probably have better luck with co-op.  Thank you.

No problem! I hope that you can find them.

 

I don't know where you live, but in our area it's really easy to find the soy free earth balance version. I think that even Wal-Mart carries it.

I know how it goes with the insurance, I am still paying deductibles from years ago that I had to put on a credit card or be turned to collections for, I could never get one year paid before the next year started.  I love how they make you pay 10% and nothing less is good enough.  My ex-husband made me take all that debt when we divorced too "they aren't my medical bills", even though some of that is two kids. I must have been the only one present for the making of them :).

 

I am dairy and soy free because they both bother me.  Makes it fun when trying to put butter in anything :)  Butter doesn't bother me as much as the soy in the butter substitutes so that is good.  Just so it isn't a recipe that calls for a lot of butter.  I hope I get the dairy back eventually, it really is a pain with all these other intolerances.  I can't eat garlic, eggs and whole rice is a problem too.  I can have rice flour but not a bowl of rice. Same with the eggs, I can eat them incorporated into a recipe but can't just sit and eat an egg. Pretty much I am sticking to whole foods.  My family is just stuck eating what I make unless I get ambitious enough and freeze what I can eat into single serving.  Been a lot of chicken soup here going on.

 

I am really not expecting much at the doctors tomorrow. I would be amazed if I actually come home with answers.  There is no blood test for Fibro and with a lot of the symptoms overlapping I really don't think he will be quick to say it is Fibro. I hope they switch meds though because I am two months straight with an NSAID and I can tell when my 12 hours is going to be up about 2 hours before.  It can't be helping the belly much either.

 

One foot forward, one day at a time. Hugs right back!

It's crazy how much it all costs too. Urgh. My son's best friend and family went to California on vacation this summer. He asked if we were going anywhere...ummm...nope...medical bills. Sad. Just have to keep hoping that we get better right?

I've decided it's best to go in to the doctor expecting nothing...that way you don't get let down. It can feel devastating. And hey...you may be pleasantly surprised!

Btw...I miss dairy...A lot. Hmm...not sure if it bothers me or not. Just felt I had to try something.

Breyer's makes a good dairy free ice cream so I haven't had a problem with that, and I have been substituting almond milk in anything that calls for milk without a problem.  It's the cheese that gets me (anyone can chime in with a good cheese substitute :) ).

 

I am going to put my medical file under my pillow tonight and hope the diagnosis fairy visits me after I wake up with a sore neck from sleeping on a book... haha

I didn't know that Breyer's made a dairy free ice cream! I'm going to have to look into that.

So far I've gotten only google results for "Breyer's Lactose Free Ice Cream." Do they have a completely dairy free one as well?

Don't drink coffee, too hard on the belly.

 

My GP thought two months ago that I had Fibromyalgia and he put me on Nabumetone twice a day and my GI has me on Dicyclomine too to help with muscle spasms and pain.  I asked about getting on some meds that are geared more towards fibro and the Rheumy told me to talk to my GP because I am on so many different meds and he doesn't want to mess with them.  I called to see what they had to say but my GP and his nurse are gone today so I will call on Monday.  The Rheumy told me that I have had classic symptoms for eight years and he was shocked that I wasn't sent to them sooner.  Oh well what's eight years of extra pain, right?  I honestly don't know much about Fibromyalgia except what I read in the booklet that they gave me today. I didn't want to read about it earlier and be biased about my symptoms so I thought it would be better not knowing.  Going to be researching my options for meds though and asking about it on here since I know there are others that have it.

 

On a separate note, I managed to eat last night and have felt pretty good most of today.  No stomach pain or bathroom stuff.  Hopefully really sticking to egg light, soy free, dairy free, garlic free and gluten free I will see some improvements.  I bought enough stuff to make chicken soup for me for about the next two weeks.  I don't even care because it tastes good and has been the one thing in three months that has never bothered me.  This will be the fourth time I have made a rather large pot, the last one was over two gallons lol. I could eat it for all three meals.  Now I need to go make soup :)

Coffee is so good!  I love it...and I'm weaning of of it.  I was at 3 cups a day...now at about 1 1/2.  But, I'm sad...no gluten, no soy, no dairy, no egg, no coffee.  I really want chocolate and I can't find any that doesn't at least have soy!  But, I'm hoping that this will somehow help something.  Every day is frustrating.

 

Your chicken soup sounds great...care to share your recipe?

If the coffee doesn't bother you - have a cup!

These might help the chocolate cravings-

And some more expensive chocolates are soy & dairy free, too

Thank you again Kareng! In such need of chocolate now.

I don't know that coffee bothers me. The problem I'm having besides this peeing thing is a bloated feeling all the time. It's so uncomfortable. Any thoughts? So...I decided to cut out dairy, soy and eggs for 2 weeks. See if I feel better. Then try to add back in one at a time. I was thinking maybe the coffee could be contributing to bloating. I just don't know. I'm very much struggling and searching.

Hi Icelandgirl,

Another option for dairy, soy, egg free chocolate are these peanut butter cups (if you are eating nuts):

http://justins.com/item/dark-chocolate-peanut-butter-cup-single/

My health food store has them along with the Enjoy Life chocolate Kareng suggested and they are so yummy, but way overpriced, so I save them for a special treat. I get the bag of Enjoy Life mini chips and eat a few whenever I am craving chocolate and the bag last a long time since they are mini chips.

Edited to add- I see those peanut butter cups have soy lecithin in them. Sorry! They are delicious if you find out soy is not a problem.

Oh my! Those look good!

 

I'm dairy free (and gluten-free of course), but not soy free, so those look like they would be awesome!  :)

No, I am not a coffee drinker-never was.  I use coconut milk as a dairy substitute.  Actually, I am looking for a new one as I discovered that coconut milk has estrogen which I am working on lowering my levels.  A little bit sure doesn't seem to hurt me.  My tummy is debloating like crazy lately.  I have some theories why, but???

    • This subject is often raised on this site, especially by women.  I am prompted to raise it again today, having spoken to my doctor who has said that she has noticed that celiacs often have thin hair, especially in later years.   Rather than just accept what she thinks is just the inevitable I would really like to hear from anyone who really has seen great improvement in their own hair and what they did. There are lots of tips on line but I am particularly interested in hearing from someone who has actually been there, done that, and now has better hair!

    • Oh i hope so!! I'm really anxious about the procedure as I've never done it before. I've been through operations but never an endoscopy and the thought of it is really scaring me! Thank you for giving me some courage! 
    • You are right, the tests could be invalid.   All the celiac tests require you to be on a gluten-containing diet.  It is up to you to decide if you want to go gluten free.  You can do it.  Believe me, I know.  Hubby is not officially diagnosed.  He went gluten-free 15 years ago, based on the rather poor advice from my allergist and his GP.  It worked though.  But he would be the first to tell you that I have had way more support in terms of family and medical.    We think he has it.  Both of our families are riddled with autoimmine disorders.  I am the first to be diagnosed.   My Aunt went gluten free per the advice of her Chiropractor.  Her other doctors never suspected celiac disease.  The diet obviously worked for her.  Her daughter (my cousin) is a nurse.  She had an endoscopy but they did not check for celiac disease.  She chose to go gluten-free too since it worked for her mom.  Both will not do a gluten challenge.  However, my diagnosis has helped them get proper medical treatment.  My Aunt is very active in a celiac support group.    Now everyone in my family knows about celiac disease.  My own niece was just diagnosed with Crohn's, but her GI did test and will continue to test her for celiac disease.  You can develop additional autoimmune disorders at any time.   So far, a few other members have been tested.  No one else had had a celiac disease diagnosis yet.  Time will tell.  If I can save someone from the misery of struggling to get a diagnosis, then I can feel good.   Now, an official diagnosis will help you adhere to the diet .  You can get follow-up care.  Get checked for other things like SIBO, H. Pylori and cancer.  But ultimately, it is up to you.   Whatever you decided to do, please consider a family health history chart.  You might someday help a grandchild.   The stool tests?  In all my research, leading celiac experts do not recommend them.  http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/why-dont-you-recognize-tests-stool-tests-or-otherwise-for-gluten-sensitivity-that-are-currently-available-through-companies-like-enterolab-or-cyrex/ gene testing?  Some 30% of the poulation carries the celiac genes.  It just tells you that you have the chance to develop celiac disease.  It can not diagnose you.    
    • The procedure is a breeze. You will go in, be sedated and go to sleep for a short nap and then it's over. Some people will have a bit of a sore throat but not everyone does. For me the hardest part of the endo was not being able to drink coffee when I got up. You seem to have been back on gluten for long enough to have the test but as CLady said there is a good chance your blood work may be negative. In your case you may want to continue eating gluten after the biopsy at least until you get your blood results. If they are negative consider going a bit longer and getting them redone.
