Had a dream the other night that I was at a party. For some reason I thought the cake was gluten-free - might have thought it was for my b-day cake. Ate a piece, yum. Got a second piece and ate 1 bite and found it wasn't gluten-free! Woke me up, mad!

I had a dream like that once--I bit into a sandwich on a roll and didn't realize it was wheat until I swallowed it. It actually woke me up. It was so odd--like the whole thing happened in slow motion.

Thank goodness I normally don't remember my dreams....

Met hubby 'cos I was dating his brother ph34r.gifwink.gif

Me grandmudder eloped wif me grandfodder whilst she was engaged to another guy . . . :o I, of course, didn't hear of this juicy tidbit till shortly before she passed away so I was unable to hound her for details . . . apparently it was a big family secret such that no one would ever say who she was engaged to.

I met me hubby through a mutual friend . . . but we didn't hit it off until I impressed him be being such a good sport. On a big camping/water skiing trip, someone was trying to break a piece of wood in two for the fire by swinging it as hard as they could against a tree. The piece that broke off hit me in the face . . . I don't actually remember getting hit or the few minutes following it . . . Had double black eyes that were almost swollen shut. I didn't leave even though the option was offered and just wore sunglasses the rest of the trip even at night. Probably should have gone to the hospital but didn't. You may not know this, but alcohol was involved.

I met Mark whilst on a date wif another guy.....

I thought my first (deceased) husband couldn't stand me. He was assigned to train me at my job as a videotape editor at a TV Network. Turned out he was shy and had a crush on me. He asked for a ride home one night when we worked the 7-3 shift and we started dating right away. wub.gif

Wouldn't have met my current hubby wub.gifwub.gifwub.gif if I hadn't married my first. First husband's passing away was the reason for the alarm system (plus I never would have lived where I did if I wasn't with first hubby -it was midway between the Lincoln Tunnel and the GW Bridge and not a family oriented town). I always lived in communities with close knit families prior to that.

Going to the Haunted Motel tonight. Will tell you about it tomorrow. Plan on walking verrry slowly and NOT falling. Bruise a little better but still need to use my gluten-free make-up to cover it up. Witch Hazel seems to be helping the bruise a bit. Have errands to do today before going tonight.

Loey biggrin.gif

Bottom of face still looks like a zombie stick figure!

Nik- also hope you're pfeeling better. I had to have 4 surgeries to replace receding gum lines (they used cadaver gums - boy did that ever give Clark a lot of material to freak me out). I chose to use the cadaver gums because I had heard the skin grafting hurt worse than the procedure. Anyway- sending you healing hugs!!!

Loey

P.S. problems with teeth and gums are yet another problem caused by Celiac that I wasn't aware of before this forum!!!!!

Back from the Gluten Free Lalapalooza! Stuffed with free samples! Had to stop eating all the cookie, cake, muffin, opie, etc samples. Fortunately there were bread, pizza. BBQ sauce, Fried chicken, onion rings,chili soups, Bards beer, Woodchuck Hard cider, and Quesidilla samples to cut the sweet. :o

I have been reading along and loving all your stories of how you met hubbies! So funny! Jess- BE sounds like he's worth the risk. I am happy for you :wub: :wub:

I knew my hubbie since I was 16 (he was 13. His older brother Neil was one of my best friends. I cahperoned his high school band ski trip :ph34r: When I was 21-22 I dated Neil and thought Kurt was SO annoying- especially after he trapped me in a car for a 5 hour drive where all we listened to was Phish. The first known pic of the two of us is me (pretending) pouring Cascade on his spaghetti after that drive.

Then he dated my best friend and when she broke up with him, I gave a her a hard time and she said, "Why don't YOU date him?" I was like- EWWWW! No way!

Fast forward 2 years and 2 different coasts and I arrive in San Francisco, walk into his apartment and realized he was the guy I was supposed to marry. :wub:

Going to the Haunted Motel tonight.

Loey

Hi Loey- We haven't met yet. I've been reading along and wanted to say hello! I'm Beverly (Bev) and getting Bev'd means you got forgotten about :lol: :lol: <_<:(

A haunted Hotel? Can I come? I'd be so scared but totally intrigued. I'm all talk, no action.

Happy Halloween weekend all (eat more chocolate!). Love to all, B

Hello Dear Karraaaaang,

Where was it? As I'm sill slowly reintroducing food into my diet it probably would have been frustrating for me to be at a gluten-free Lalapalooza so I'm living through you vicariously. Time to shower, spend 20 minutes covering the bruises (a little better every day) before doing errands and haunted motel date with hubby, and let's not forget laundry.

Loey

P.S. Still plan on "rectifying" tonight. I think I need to find a word that's more Halloweenish. Also hope he stays awake. The stress of his new job and getting up early makes him tired really early. Perhaps immediately after the haunted house!!!!!!!!

Was at the National Celiac Sprue (hate that word) Association Conference in Kansas City.

Instead of rectifying:

Unwrap the mummy

Ride the broomstick

Soothe the ghost

Share your candy

Witch Hazel works really well for bruises.

Giving you extra plusses because it is really helping (though I have a looooong way to go). Finally emailed my girlfriends who are visiting to tell them about it (they're use to my "klutziness" - before I knew about Ataxia) but I doubt it will be gone by Wednesday when they arrive. I'm so excited to have someone from my old home visiting!!!

Nice to meet you, too Bev!. I love this forum and particularly this thread!!!

I'm looking forward to the Haunted Motel. The story was that in the 1600's two ships crashed into each other and no one survived. The captain of one of the ships lives in the Shady Motel (called the Bates Haunted Motel). As I mentioned a few days ago on this thread we went to the Night of Terror at the Philadelphia Penitentiary last year and it was pretty creepy. I was talking back to the goblins after a while and even grabbed one of their hands (I'm somewhat ballsy). Most of them were in cells but a lot weren't. I would be surprised if tonight was as scary.

The only thing I'm not looking forward to is covering my bruised face. My girlfriend suggest I use Halloween make-up and duplicate it on the other side but that's not gluten-free. I also think it would look funny at Walmart.

Then I plan on treating Superman right (or rectifying as Jess put it)!!!! That's if we can stay awake.

Loey wink.gifwink.gifwink.gif

    • I've had a range of symptoms in the last 2 months and in the past few weeks I have discovered that my TTG abs (igA) levels were 41 (my igA tests were fine). The doctor said that he is pretty much certain that it is celiac disease and I am awaiting an endoscopy to confirm it.  Before I found out that my TTG abs (igA) levels were high, I noticed that my body was reacting really badly to dairy products. I went on an elimination diet and stopped all gluten and dairy products and felt much better. I carried this on after my results and thought that I must have developed a dairy intolerance due to my celiac. 2 days ago I accidentally consumed a glass of wine which I thought was dairy free but it contained Milk. I have not had any gluten.  I am currently in the middle of a flare up. All of a sudden rashes have started to appear on my hands and my anxiety has returned (usually not a anxious person). No diarhhoea, vomiting or digestive issues. I am currently suffering from muscle twitching, rashes predominantly on hands and feet, brain fog, pins and needles/numbness on hands, feet and arms. However, I have been tested for milk allergy and this came back negative. Is it possible that it is dairy that is causing my symptoms/autoimmune reaction and could this be a reason for elevetated TTG abs (igA) levels. Or has the doctor only picked up my celiac and missing something else. If it was dairy intolerance then I would have digestive issues but I don't seem to have any. Could it be the casein protein?  Anyone been in a similar situation or can anyone provide some insight? 
    • Hello Everyone, This is my first post here and I am writing to seek help from experienced people here. I have been suffering for over 4 years now and still no where close to having a solution/ satisfactory diagnosis of my problem. My problems started in Mar 2012 with sudden diarrhea which would not go away for days. At first, I was given general antibiotics medication which would help bring down the frequency for some days and then it would come back. Since then it has been going on. I am giving a time line and the series of tests and procedures I have gone through. Would like opinion from experienced and experts here. I can send the scans and reports if required. Would really appreciate the help. Male, Indian origin Mar 2012 - onset of symptoms - multiple bouts diarrhea - spaced 3-4 weeks, bloating, weight loss (to start with I was 74 Kgs), GP managed with antibitocs and loperamide for months Dec 2012 - consulted a GI doc towards end of 2012, Colonoscopy done - conclusion was "IBS" - was advised to manage stress. use Rifaximin and immodium Jan 2013 - Aug 2013 kept moderately fine for 3-4 months ..again started getting frequent diarrhea + weight loss (was around 70 Kgs) Oct 2013 - Consulted another doc, MD - stool and blood test - Ecoli and high Eosinophil Count, medication done for 5-6 months, montinored eosinophil from nov - Mar: always kept high.. came down but then again shot up in a month Mar 2014 - Consulted another GI expert - Endoscopy and duodenal biopsy done - H Pylori and Unremarkable Villious pattern, (weight 68 Kgs) - On and Off diarrhea continued. Given: Ivermectin July 2014 - again same doc - Blood test done: High Eosinophil count,  Colonoscopy and Ileum biopsy - preserved villous architecture, features of eosinophilic enteritis; Endoscopy  + duodenal biospy again - numerous H pylori bacteria, Preserved villous crypt ratio, features of eosinophilic enteritis > conclusion: I have eosinophilic enteritis. Started on Prednisolone (steroids) Aug 2014 - 3-4 days of severe diarrhea> weight came down to 65 Kgs. Hospitalised for 3 days - continued on Prednisolonerios Sep 2014 - After 10 days only again a serious bout of diarrhea - hospitalized again - put on IV fluid for 8 days - weight 59 Kgs. Colonoscopy + biopsy done: features of superimposed c. difficile colitis, non-specific mild colitis > c. difficle test came out negative. CT Enterolysis +Scan done: mesenteric lymphadenopathy > nothing wrong acc to docs. IgA deficiency found - diagnosed Celiac - advised for Gluten free diet.   Sep 14 - May 16: continued gluten-free diet, gained weight upto 63 Kg in Jan 16, but then started losing again and came to 59 Kgs in May. No signficant diarrhea. Minor issues. June 16 onwards: Again diarrhea started, still on gluten-free diet, weight lost - 54 Kgs now. hospitalised again under same GI doc - blood test - eosinophil high, CT Enterolysis done: Showing mucosal thickening in Jejunum and Ileum; Enteroscopy (going in jejunum) + jejunal biopsy - jejunal erosions + villous blunting, marked atrophic with V:C ratio of 0.5: 1 to 0:1. HttG blood test done - Came out negative> Conclusion : No gluten exposure (how?) + Refractory Celiac disease. June - July - have been suffering from continuous diarrhea (goes off for 5-6 days and comes back, bloating, trappings in abdomen - waiting for I don't know what. On Rifaximin + Ivermectin + Codeine Sulphate (for diarrhea) I am very depressed and have no clarity on what's going on. If it is celiac, why am I not doing better on gluten-free diet. If the villous damage is still there in small intestine, then why did I kept fine for Sep - May period? HTTG - negative now but was NOT taken in Sep when I was first diagnosed with celiac. Can we trust negative HTTG now and conclude that it has come down? I am 20 kgs down from my ideal weight and still going down. Have no clue what NOT to eat to stop this. Why is eosinophil always high. Can any of you expert help me to put my case to docs in other countries? With lots of hope, Alok          
    • So, I know I'm obsessing but...... University of Chicago Celiac Disease Center website says any total IgA result over 20 won't affect the celiac test.   If this is so,  I'm still confused as to what a weak positive ttg iga means even though her result was barely in this category.  Why bother having a weak positive anyway?   I just don't get it and our doc is on vacation so I won't know what he'll recommend for another week.  I'll be finding out this week if we can see a GI without a referral. Our lyme doc (she's had lyme, may still have it, like I said it's a long story) is having her do an IgG wheat test but I don't think that has any bearing on celiac does it?    
    • Hi!  I've had good luck at the Minnesota state fair because most food booths are only doing one thing so there is no cross-contamination. For example: french fries or chocolate covered bacon or Indian kebabs.   But I live in California and I am heading to the state fair today! Does anybody have any great food suggestions that are definitely gluten-free there? Thanks, Celiac C.
    • Hi.  I have been reading your post and thinking about how my pain was around diagnosis.  It was above the belly button, I think where you are describing.  At the time I assumed I had a stomach ulcer.   I had been taking Neurofen for an ear problem and assumed it was the NSAID that had caused my stomach ulcer (which I actually didn't have, when I had an endoscopy a few weeks later my stomach was looking great! My small intestine was not!).   Going back to the pain, it was a burning feeling.   My doctor prescribed Omeprazole but it didn't touch it.   In fact I ended up with bad D. which eventually lead to me having all the tests for Celiac Disease.   I still get that pain if I eat oats (pure oats) that are supposed to be OK for most Celiacs.     I get various pains in different places in my digestive tract from time to time, but that burning pain is something I won't forget. The other thing I had that you mention was that pain between the shoulder blades.  I had that - I felt almost like someone was pushing my shoulders down.  So odd. I get palpitations when I am anemic.    I hope you get some answers soon.  It is pretty tough having to keep going from one doctor to another, but sometimes it is the only way.
