this was actually discussed many times during the siege. Somewhere, there is a photo of this leg, but it's long since gone. I do think we should have contacted the media, I could have made my fortune.....

Wow....a weeping Virgin Mary on yer leg.....

I can see the exodus...crowds of townsfolk on pilgrimmage from distant lands, all to kneel before S-oozie's envisioned leg.....

:lol: And you could have charged ten bucks a minute.

sillies, I've been given a prescription of steroids..........gads. May be awake for days on this.

Steroid......gad....no beard appearing over the running face ooze, is there?.... :o:lol:

I never had trouble sleeping while on steriods--I took them way too frequently years ago.....my doctors would give them to me as they had no idea what else to do. <_< Read: to get rid of me. :angry:

The worst side effect was the moon face--I would get that. :huh: (moon face)

I'll bet you sleep better tonight since the itching should start to abate.

Yes, I duno what's come over me......

...However, symmetry, I would say, is as much artistic as it is mathematical, n'est-ce-pas?

And asymptote??!! Gaaaaahhhhhhh........TOO MUCH MATHS!!!!!!!!

Susie, this is for you, with my apologies:

Asymptote (n): a straight line associated with a curve such that as a point moves along an infinite branch of the curve, the distance from the point to the line approaches zero and the slope of the curve at the point approaches the slope of the line...

Right, Ptaoughmn? :lol::lol:

(P'r'aps I could contend that the artistic side is also directly mathy, both in its necessary prevalence in nature and in the means of perception thereof, including the neurological aspects pre-existant in every modern homo-sapiens' cortextual ... ..oh who am I kidding?!!!!! :lol: )

Vet who treats Stepford cats. Although, after S-oozie's stories about the Stepford dog, maybe the vet I saw just indulges in absinthe after work and hallucinates those cats that calmly let you chuck a pill down their throats.

(I really just needed a reason to be able to write S-oozie :P )

Here are some instructions on giving a cat a pill. Hope it helps Jess.

And yet the precision brought by paragraph after paragraph I found delightful.

Conversely, a similar qty written on the finer points of your specialty would freak ME out!! :wacko:

<sniff> you even had a greek letter mathematical symbol - capital epsilon was it?

Nakedness has not been effective. :ph34r:

This is developing into a desperate situation. In case of escalation, do you have some Altoids handy? I believe that the optimum quantity is two, according to Karen (who has been missing for a while).

Times tables for the number 17--I didn't know that was the conversion factor.

In my undiagnosed days I had trouble communicating with people in the US about my sugar levels. They had no clue what 2.8 meant, and I could not translate. For the people who don't have to worry about blood sugar, 2.8 is dangerously low, and in my pre-diagnosis days was time for me to pass out while someone called 911. Not phun at all. Malabsorption combined with type 1 diabetes...

Things are much better since I went gluten-free. Jacquie is trying the diet to see if it helps with the headaches she has been having, but it is too early to make an assessment. I was gluten-free for a year before I realized that my migraines were gone (and still are).

    • Sjogren's, Celiac, or both?
      Well, you do not HAVE to get tested, but since Celiac Disease is genetic and you have kiddos, you should seriously consider the pros and cons. Take for instance, my hubby.  He went gluten-free over 15 years ago per the very poor advice of his GP and my allergist.  "Try giving up wheat and see how you feel."  Well, it worked.  No more sinus infections, feeling achy like he had the flu, etc.  He seriously struggled the first year without a proper diagnosis, but eventually good health became more important than rye bread.  Twelve years later, I was anemic (well I have been all my life)  and went for a routine colonsocopy because all my friends were getting them (the perks of the over 50 club).  During my GI consult he recommended getting scoped at both ends because he suspected celiac disease.  I could not believe it!  But blood tests and my biopsies proved that I had celiac disease.   Hubby will be the first to say that I have had more medical, family and friend support with a formal diagnosis.  He refuses to do a gluten challenge.  His mom was diagnosed with MS and literally died from malnutrition, so we suspect she had celiac disease.  He definitely has a problem with gluten.   Thankfully, my dx has allowed for my daughter to be tested every few years (even without symptoms).  She does not have celiac disease or any other autoimmune disorder yet.  I say yet, because the gene pool for AI issues is huge on both sides.  Good news is that cancer is rare but you never know.   So, this is a decision you will have to make.  An endoscopy requires a much shorter challenge.  Something to consider.  Gene testing too will help rule out celiac disease and might be the first thing to consider as you do not have to be on gluten for that.   I wish you well! 
    • Sjogren's, Celiac, or both?
      Everything you listed above very well could be Celiac Disease and not Sjogren's, but people with one autoimmune disease are at a higher risk of getting another one.  Your GP clearly is working with old knowledge in regard to Celiac Disease. There are probably more people who suffer from constipation from Celiac than loose stools. I know for me I never had diarrhea at all, but I was backed up something fierce.  I also had swollen joints, headaches, abdominal pain, memory issues, high liver enzymes, fatigue and general cloudy head.  Not many of these are symptoms an uninformed Doctor would think to associate with Celiac.  You really have to show up prepared to be your own advocate, tell the doctor that according to many of the GI specialists who work with Celiacs (see University of Chicago's celiac disease Center) these are all symptoms that warrant a proper workup for celiac disease.  It took me 6 months, two biopsies and an unneeded surgery to get diagnosed and that isn't as bad as some.

    • Pre Biopsy gluten intake
      Here is a link that will tell you what each of the major celiac disease centers recommend. I reference this site because the woman writing it is a doctor herself who has celiac disease and is also a member of this site. She's done the research for us & put it all together in one post: http://www.thepatientceliac.com/2014/07/06/hope-for-a-less-challenging-gluten-challenge/
    • Sjogren's, Celiac, or both?
      Thanks for the input! cyclinglady - I've been trying not to be mad at my GP for ruling out Celiac at a time when I didn't know any better, but now I'm PO'd! Going back on gluten is going to suck. I was accidentally exposed last week, and I didn't go to the bathroom for two days, had my first headache in months, and wanted to sleep all day. Eight to 12 weeks sounds awful! I wish she would have done that test when she was taking blood by the pint for all sorts of stuff I didn't have. Blerg. ravenu5 - Thanks for sharing about your constipation. I didn't know how normal it was to not have diarrhea. But my constipation was also basically untreatable by normal means. I used to laugh when people suggested prunes. I could have probably eaten them by the bucket (though the most I ever tried at once was a dozen or so). I was so shocked when I started going to the bathroom regularly after eliminating gluten. The last time going to the bathroom wasn't an issue for me was when I was a kid! Gemini - It's nice to hear from someone else with Sjogren's! I haven't met anyone else in real life with Sjogren's, and I've never posted on a forum before. And thank you for being sorry about my miscarriage. It super-duper sucked. The miscarriage drove me to a third rheumatologist because I felt like I needed to know what was wrong with me. With two healthy, full-term pregnancies in the last five years and no history of problems, my risk of miscarriage was low, and I felt like the timing (all these new symptoms and the miscarriage) probably wasn't a coincidence. (But my kids have been a huge comfort. My youngest turned a year old the day after the miscarriage, and I feel so terrible for anyone who has to go through a miscarriage without a baby to cuddle. I don't know how it's done!) The first two rheumatologists I went to after my positive ANA and SSA said I didn't have Sjogren's! (Is there a space on this forum for doctor rants?) Anyway, Thank you so much for sharing with me. It's really nice to hear other voices on these things.

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!
