Got A Quick Question

5 posts in this topic

Well my son has been gluten-free for 3 months. My husband and I are getting tested through Enterlab as soon as we can afford the test. We decided to go gluten-free also so the house would be 100% safe for our son. We its been 6 days and all is going well. We both feel a good bit better. Well my sister works at Domino's pizza (hell right? lol) and brought us home a pizza. HOW SWEET. Well we both caved. We devoured it. lol Within 30 minutes we both ran to the bathroom. We BOTH had diareaha all day long. My stomach is still cramping and hurting and my husband has been complaining of gas this morning too. Should we take this as a sign? I am 25 and I have RA and also IBS since I was 4. I have been on Levsin controling my stomach issues since I was in kindergarden. We suspect I do have it but werent saying until we got tested, what do you think? And now my husband is going through the same pain and bathroom issues as I. I dont know what to think other than to stay away from Dominos and all gluten. Shame on us.

PS we do know you have to be on gluten for the tests, but it might take us a little while to save for the stool test because we are buying our first home right now. YAY. Thank you in advance for all your help.

I would defenitly take that as a sign, also if your whole house is gluten-free then why would you need to get the tests, I think that accident is totaly a test in itself! YOu probably do have it

P.S. how did you get the slide show for your avatar???? I would love that!

I love your slideshow avatar! Cute pics....I've seen this kind of thing using some program, but can you do that with standard programs on a comp.? :D

I don't think you have to be on gluten for enterolab tests.....as long as it hasn't been years w/o gluten...so it might make sense to have your pizza before the test, but you don't need a full-out gluten rampage....and Molly is right, this is already a good test. I think it is a sign.....you've been off gluten for a little while now, so your intestines are healing and your intestines are getting more sensitive to gluten.

Hi Amy, love the pics too :D

I would say the results of the pizza test are a BIG positive!!!!! I think Dr. Fine says you can be gluten-free for up to 6 months for his testing. My daughter was gluten-free for one month before I had her tested.

Thank you so much. The avatar was easy to make. You have to resize the images and then enter them into an animation program. I use Jasc Paint Shop Pro 7 which comes with Animation Shop. You can download it for a "free" trial from there website, just do a search. I downloaded the whole program off www.limewire.com :) NEVER PAY FOR SOFTWARE!! hehhehe I am a share ware type of girl.

    • Good grief!  :o. I'm so sorry, I wish there was something I could do or say to help you.  I agree with the NP, your primary needs to be requesting copies of your records from the other doctors, as well as the records and lab reports from your hospital stay.  They are supposed to work together as a team, not just individually out in left field.
    • Just a quick one to say I got a diagnosis of celiac disease today. I know in the past it's been helpful for me to know the outcome for other folk, so thought I would update. The moral of this story is even with a VERY borderline blood test it's worth persisting. thanks for all the help Sue

    • Well, I am stressed to the max. I just spent 3 days in the hospital with D and stomach pain, dizziness, chest pain, generally unwell. Then another trip to the ER on top of that. My protein was low and my RBC and hemoglobin dropped below normal in 3 days. Not terribly low, but below normal. I also had metabolic acidosis which still confuses me. I usually eat every 2-3 hours despite it causing pain to keep my energy up and was unable to eat that frequently in the hospital. I usually carry protein with me and had been taking liquid iron which I stopped a few weeks ago because my new endo is not a fan of iron supplements. As soon as I got home from the hospital I started with my protein drinks and blackstrap molasses for iron.  I now have bilateral mild pleural effusions and a nodule on my left lung, which hopefully is nothing, but was not there on a CT back in March. In addition, my left adrenal gland, which also appeared normal in March, is calcified and the report indicates this is most likely due to a previous bleed or infection. My colon appears tortuous (whatever that means) and we are waiting on colon/endo biopsies. I have been gluten-free since March except for cc so expect the biopsies to again be negative.  My primary care is useless. I am in the process of getting a new one I will see on the 7th but need the current one to fill out FMLA paperwork because I both physically and mentally need time to recover. I will have to go off of payroll for 2 weeks but I think I need to. I called the primary's office today to discuss the hospital tests which she does NOT have yet and to ask if we should/could start a low dose of prednisone because my body is attacking itself. My thyroid on ultrasound is also abnormal though my bloodwork thus far is normal. But it hurts on that side. The only reason the ultrasound was ordered is because I asked for it in the first place. The only reason I have started seeing an endocrinologist is because I found one myself. Anyway...I broke down in tears on the phone eith her today and she told me I was having a "manic episode". I have no history of mania. I only recently started taking xanax to help me cope with the stress of being sick. I was not sick until I did this stupid gluten challenge over the winter. My mother was in town and spoke with the doctor on the phone as well who was trying to get my mom to take me to a psych hospital. She also threatened to send the police to check on me. My mother assured her I was in no danger and we hung up the phone in complete shock. Admittedly, I was in tears when I called her and probably sounded like a fucking mess. But I believe I referenced the dropping iron, protein, fluid near lungs, enlarged thyroid and attacked adrenal gland then literally said "my body is attacking itself and I need help" to which she said, "I think you are manic". Lovely. If I was a mess before that phone call it was 10x worse when we hung up.  Anyway, this is the first night it has been extremely difficult to sleep. I admit my thoughts about my odd symptoms keep me up often recently. I mean, who the hell bleeds from or gets an infected adrenal gland?! I am sure it was another time I begged my primary for help. On a side not, the NP at the ER told me the primary should be putting these pieces together and communicating with my other doctors better. He then stated that he used to go to the same practice but left because the practice got too big and like a business. So I got some validation from that chat.  A melatonin or a .25 xanax usually does the trick for me to sleep but I am so disturbed about my interaction today, stressed at my health, stressed that my ex has our son so much because I am always sick (bless him for coming through), stressed that I have to go back to this awful doctor because I will need the FMLA paperwork before I see the new doc on the 7th.  8 months ago, I took a multivitamin when I remembered it and that was it.  End rant. Maybe now that it is off my chest I can finally sleep.
