Was that you modeling the undies, Shroomie? :P

Well, I do have an exhibitionistic side but didn't know you would recognize me - not too bad for someone of my advanced years, what??? :rolleyes:

Checkin in again. I'm tempted to start reading back....but I KNOW better than to do that.

Update about me: Many of my Celiac symptoms refuse to disappear. I'm ready to fire the NPA that I'm seeing. The one I had and loved has moved on. This one apparently feels I'm in need of "counseling", and that if I take drugs to help me sleep I'll feel, oh so much better, and that I MUST be cheating on my diet (does she think I WANT to be deathly ill again????) Finally, I went back to the gastroenterologist that had diagnosed Celiac for me (4 years ago now), had a consult and colonoscopy. I have microscopic colitis....which explains a lot! I also went to a second rhuematologist (the first one took a blood test, declared that I did NOT have arthritis, threw up her hands and said there was nothting that she could do for me.....ehhh!). THIS one spent more than an hour with me....sent me for xrays, and lo and behold I have degenerative arthritis, calcium deposits and bone spurs. Her big concern is that the (oh, brain-fart! I can't think of what they're called)...where the nerves pass through the spine......have narrowed and are causing a lot of pinching of nerves. Explains the pain, the neuropathy....so much. I'm currently waiting for my next appts with both doctors for where to go from here. Nsaids that might help with arthritis will cause trouble with the colitis.

Anyway...thanks for giving me a place to whine and cry. I'm still working, though on many, many days I don't know if I can get through a day. Perhaps now I can address some of this......

Thanks most of all for being right here in my computer when I need you, and for needing me, too.

Happy to be trapped in your computer, waiting to offer a hug or a shoulder, as needed. :)

Fire the NPA, and when you do it, drop a copy of your new diagnoses on her desk and tell her she would have eventually killed you if you had listened to her.

My mom has spinal stenosis, and I fear it for myself, eventually. Please pass on anything you learn.

Did you tell the NPA that the GI & the Rheum are in need of meds, too? :D

I'm trying to be as good as possible. Don't want anything to be used against me later. I have to go to a Christmas party with him tomorrow night (sooooooooooooo don't want to!) and I'm not allowing myself even 1 drop of alcohol. Unfortunately, alcohol is the only thing that makes those parties barable... :rolleyes:

Hi,

I'm so sorry to hear that you have multiple medical problems and doctors who don't GET it. I have Lupus, Leukemia and Scoliosis in addition to my Celiac. The worst thing is when the doctor doesn't believe you. I've lucked out and I have a team of doctors who take care of me. I do have days that I feel like a hypochondriac but it always turns out that there's something wrong. Please know that we're here to support you no matter what you need.

Last night I was diagnosed with intussusception. "Intussusception is a serious disorder in which part of the intestine

    • Do you mean something like a protein powder you could mix up?  A lot of them in the US seem to be gluten free.  Maybe just go to your local store and read all the labels?
    • Yeah I ended up allergic to corn, olives, sesame, whey, and peanuts and intolerant to dairy, soy, yeast, enzyme issues with breaking down meats, and egg yolks, along with extreme bloat with any kind of carbs/sugars in moderate amounts. And very adverse reactions to certain artificial sweeteners. So your not alone in all the other issues cropping up, it happens as our bodies adjust.  I eat a bunch of stir frys with veggies, egg whites, plenty of  avocados, and toasted and raw forms of almonds, coconut, cashews, walnuts, hemp seeds, pumpkin seeds, flax seeds, sancha inchi seeds, chia seeds, and sunflower seeds in all forms including making them into butters, spreads, and incorporating them into sauces.   Most meals are forms of soups, omelettes, and stir frys. I do the seeds and nuts on rotation same with my veggies and snack on fruits in small amounts along with some homemade baked goods I make for markets. I do suggest a rotation of foods, my dietician said I need to rotate my foods to prevent more issues, making sure I am off one one for at least 7-14 days at a time completely. I find changing up the spices and rotating my cuisine base works well. I also make puddings, and protein shakes along with nut/seed milks, and different bases and extract flavorings to get my random cravings Taken care of. Guess take what you can from this and and see how it can help you,    As to the tinging, I ended up with both B vitamin and magnesium deficiency issues, the magnesium one caused a fire like tingling in my arms, legs and back, along with muscle pain. Ended up on a doctors best powder form of it so I can dose it out right, and found epsom salt bathes helped.  
    • Hi, I've gained so much knowledge on this forum over the past few months, which I am so thankful for. I can see how much hell people are going through with this disease and it's so lovely to see how much support and advice people give to others on here. I'd like a little bit of reassurance and advice myself from anyone that can help. I've been gluten free for six months. Two weeks after going gluten free I realised I also had a problem with corn so cut out processed food. Over the following weeks and months I continually had problems with food; fruit, dairy, a lot of vegetables, nuts, soya....it's basically dwindled down to just eating potatoes (not white potatoes), cucumber, lettuce, small amounts of red onion, spring onion, sprouts and beetroot. There may be more things I could be okay with but to be honest I'm too scared to try.  Is this all normal? Am I an extreme case? I've been taking some digestive enzymes and probiotics for about six weeks, my acid reflux has dramatically decreased but I always have a lot of loud noises going on in my guts, I'm guessing this is the probiotics working.  I've lost nearly 3st in weight since this started - which I'm not complaining about as I was overweight due to thyroid problems. I've had loads of blood tests done recently, all organs are working 'great' according to my doctor, the only thing they've picked up on is ketones, I seem to be having a glucose problem, which might explain my exhaustion and weight loss. I also have permanent numbness and sometimes tingling in one of my legs and sometimes hands and one shoulder, I thought it could have vitamin B12 deficiency but that's okay according to blood tests. I would be greatful for any replies. Thanks for reading.
    • Hi everyone, I am doing job in restaurant at evening 5 to 12 during working hours no time to do a dinner. I'm thinking to make a shake but don't know the gluten free vitamin or supplement brand which one is good for me and easily available in Berlin Germany to make me fit cause last one week i feel weak. I'm 28 year old. Sincerely
    • Hey there just wanted to warn anyone that has other allergies- these crackers may not be a good choice! I'm mildly sensitive to MSG- I only react if there's a giant amount like in Chinese food or Ramen noodles, etc.  I literally have a to eat TONS of a the offending food before reacting.  Anyway, I was excited to try these Trader Joes pumpkin crackers, kept hearing about them on the radio .... and they're gluten free!  (I have Hashi's).  I ate about 3/4 of the box last night. Woke up this morning with a red itchy face and nasal congestion, headache, anxiety. Hallmark symptoms for me of high MSG intake. (It does say yeast extract on the side but it's pretty far down the list). So if you're sensitive.... stay away! Apparently these particular crackers are loaded with it.
