11 year-old Son had negative blood panel, but went on gluten-free diet of his own volition to see if his concentration would improve, his temper abate, and his energy level would increase. Miraculous response!

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

Are you sure you're wining enough?

If you're gonna switch to wodka, throw a little OJ in there with it . . . you know . . . to make it healthy.

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 either the small intestine or colon slides into another part of the intestine. This "telescoping" often blocks the intestine, preventing food or fluid from passing through. Intussusception also cuts off the blood supply to the part of the intestine that's affected".


I'll be keeping you in my prayers and sending positive energy to you.



Loey
